I liked almost every thing except the Breakfast no choice at all. In my opinion it better to charge a fee for it and have more choices.

This hotel is a good value for the money. The room was adequate in size and clean. The service staff was very good and always helpful when we needed them. The location - a few blocks from Waikiki Beach -- was also a plus. When I go back to Honolulu I plan to return to this hotel.
