How anyone can write anything negative about this beautiful hotel is beyond me. I was so nervous before we arrived as i had read the negative reviews on tripadvisor. We are incredibly fussy and we stayed for four nights over Christmas in two connecting deluxe diamond head view rooms and they were wonderful, no they are not ultra modern but...

One of the most pleasant hotels I have ever stayed. Calm oasis in the middle of very busy international city. Room decoration might be even too calm. No color anywhere, no pictures on walls. This might be the only hotel in Waikiki where there are no large groups. It has upscale, luxury, personal feeling. Every member of staff is honestly...

We have not long returned from our honeymoon at the Halekulani. We stayed here for just under a week before going to California and we werent disappointed. We booked it nearly a year before we got married and read some amazing reviews but also some disappointing ones, we then were slightly worried when we read that there would be some...

My husband and I work at Boston Hotels, we were absolutely thrilled with the Halekulani, its well worth it. Its like a sanctuary on Waikiki beach; just close enough to all the thrills and shopping and restaurants but very quiet and calm on the property. The rooms are fantastic, very new and clean. The pool service was incredible, very much...

My family and I stayed in two adjoining Diamond Head ocean view rooms (1260 & 1261) on both sides of a 5-night vacation to Hana, Maui. If you're looking for a great hotel in the middle of Waikiki, this is it. But if you're expecting quiet and some degree of solitude, you'll be disappointed. The Halekulani isn't as big as...

My wife and I just returned from the Halekulani after staying at the Four Seasons Maui. We have seen many recent negative reviews of this hotel, so we wanted to give you a sense of our opinion. To give you a sense of where we normally stay (to show you our typical hotel expectations), we have been to Hawaii multiple...

I have been coming to the Halekulani for many years. In fact, I visit the hotel couple of times a year and my recent visit may have been my LAST. I have stayed at many 4 and 5 star resorts/hotels worldwide and the Halekulani in no way compares to other luxury hotels. Unfortunately, I've watched the Halekulani deteriorate over the...

Halekulani hotel is nice but not a 5 star resort. (I would not bill this as a resort). For the price, this hotel was way overpriced. During our vacation we stayed at the four seasons in Maui for the same price and it was like driving a Ferrari vs a Toyota. What we liked: ->Perfect location. Within walking distance of...

My family stayed here for a week over Thanksgiving and overall had a favorable impression. The rooms as one of the earlier posts indicates are in need of an upgrade. That would be my chief complaint. Construction going on (including Thanksgiving day) and fitness center is essentially non-existent (relocated due to construction). We had 2 rooms-Diamond Head view which is...

My husband and I spent six days at The Four Seasons on Maui, and we ended our trip at The Halekulani on Oahu. The Four Seasons was a five star experience, The Halekulani was not.
