We stayed at the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel on Oahu from September 23-28, 2012. This was the second leg of our vacation, and the third hotel we stayed at in Hawaii. The hotel is in a great location, right on the beach and next to the Kapiolani Park on the south side of Waikiki. The hotel is also located...

The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel is located right on the beach (San Souci); no roads to cross! It is a 10 minute walk from the the "Waikiki strip" through Kapiolani Park and is a pleasant walk. We stayed in a "Diamond Head" view room which was comfortable and clean but could use a renovation. I understand that some rooms...

For the most part, I have enjoyed the 4 days staying at the New Otani Kaimana. Of particular importance, was the awesome view from our corner room and San Souci beach just outside the hotel. By far, these were the two aspects worth paying for. The 15 minute walk from the hotel to Waikiki and back, just to get coffee,...

I came here on a 5-day vacation by myself to explore Hawaii. I was very pleased with the overall experience, particularly the service. The valets are friendly and helpful with travel tips, the bartenders likewise courteous, and room service prompt and extremely thorough. The rooms are a bit small and Wi-Fi is very slow, but if you're in Oahu to...

This hotel was one of the best that I ever stayed in anywhere. It is very plush, boutique style with excellent service, restaurant was great and very friendly employees. The hotel is located at the end of the Waikiki beach strip near the zoo and is separated by the park. This gives it a feeling that you have a portion...

I've been staying at the New Otani Kaimana since 1995 and always have a wonderful time. It's a boutique hotel right on the ocean and is perfect if you're looking for a peaceful vacation on Waikiki but away from the chaos of Waikiki. Things I liked the most: (1) It has valet parking (which you pay for, sadly) so getting...

I had some trepidation about the hotel from a small minority of reviews, but it was close to perfect for us. We had booked this using miles on United, and we got the cheapest room selection. I had emailed the hotel earlier about upgrading, but thinking we would spend little time inside the room, I decided to not opt for...

We've been staying at the New Otani for more than 20 years and it keeps getting better and better. It still has the great location on Sans Souci beach, adjacent to Kapiolani Park.
