Given the rating for this hotel, I saved our stay there for the last two nights of our trip to Oahu. We had very high expectations to say the least. We had reserved an ocean view room but then before we arrived were upgraded to an ocean front room at a rate of $655 per night for two people. Upon... More

We stayed at the Halekulani Hotel in October, 2016 and were mesmerized by the quality of the hotel amenities and blown away by the level of service! This is not a 5 star hotel level of service.... It is off the charts. Every person employed by the hotel was very friendly and did everything down to the last detail to... More

I found this an average Hotel and question its value. My main gripe is for the price you expect a polished experience this whole way, and it fell well short. The check in expedience was lackluster. Each time we arrived or left the hotel the concierge/greeting team were huddled in their own group and often didn't acknowledge you. The hotel... More

Where do I begin? Checkout began with a snippy member of their front desk team who begrudgingly took me up to my room. A quick tour of the room was followed with a depressing "Is there anything else I can help you with?" My room had a nice view, but that's all I can really say about this property. When... More

After a half dozen trips to the Hawaiian Islands we finally stayed at the number one luxury hotel on the Waikiki beach in Honolulu. The Halekulani is truly the best. Not as secluded as the highly rated Kahala around the corner from Diamond Head but an oasis in the middle of the bustle of Honolulu none the less. Just slightly... More

I grew up on O'ahu and come back frequently to visit family and to enjoy the beach and Hawaiian sun. My wife and I recently spent two nights in Waikiki at the Halekulani. While we have never stayed there before but had gone many times for dinner and drinks and to watch the fantastic Hawaiian show on the beach. This... More

Waking up at finding yourself at he Halekulani is like heaven. Our room was at the end of the hall and afforded spectacular views of the ocean and Diamond Head. The room was conservative with louvered doors and dividers, white carpeting and blond furnishings. Everything was wasteful and refined. The large bathroom had separate shower and tub, a large area...

Elegant hotel. Great restaurants, excelent breakfast buffet. Romantic. Couple of steps away from downtown Honolulu. The only "problem" is that it doesn't have a great space for beach. Great for honeymoon or "silent" retreat.

I've stayed at the Halekulani up to four times a year for 12 years now and the service, across the board, from housekeeping to front desk and concierge and right on through to the servers in the various restaurants is simply the best one can find anywhere! Employees are always happy and helpful and better than that, conscientious! They actually... More

We spent 5 nights at the Halekulani and what can I say? Staff are excellent, the service from everyone was great. The pool is old school, but very relaxing place to spend an afternoon. The breakfasts were excellent and the Mai Tai's at Orchids live up to the reputation as to the dining experience at La Mer. The rooms are... More
