Beautiful, spotless room, peacefully decorated, very zen and serene. The hotel has a calm welcoming atmosphere. Hotel is away from the hustle of Honolulu and feels like a private club. The hotel staff is caring and professional. The real Aloha experience, you feel like you are staying as their personal guests. Walk right over to the busy Honolulu/Waikiki in a...

We had a one night stay here before moving in to a Condo. The hotel is absolutely great away from the bustle but just a dart to a secluded beach. Our corner room renovated to a high standard was spotless and had very good views too.Nice touch the free wine in foyer at 4pm and a chance to chat to...

I typically stay right in Waikiki or Ala Moana, simply because it is easy in/out. All of the 'usual suspects' were booked or out of my business allowance. This hotel is nestled right around Queen's beach within a stone's throw of diamond head. In fact, if lucky enough, as I, you will have a room with a FABULOUS VIEW of...

This is a little gem, only 15 minutes walk from central Waikiki. The rooms are a good size, and very modern and always clean. The guys on the ground floor who look after check in and the car park are very courteous and helpful. Always offering a bottle of water, or a towel for the beach, or chairs for the...

My family and I have come to Honolulu 7 times in the last 14 years, 7 different hotels & apartments (some very well known and big, some not so), but this place has been wonderful. Will certainly stay here again the next time we come to Honolulu. Doesn't have much in the way of breakfast, restaurants, pools, other facilities like...

What a lovely little boutique hotel. It isn't beach front but you have access to the beach just a few minutes away. No amenities (pool, restaurant) but they make up for it with thoughtful little details, like illy coffee in the room, free dvd rentals, complimentary coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The room is fantastic, so...

This was our second stay at this property, though the first time since ownership transferred from Starwood hotels. It's still an extremely nice property within easy walking distance to Waikiki without all the throngs of tourists at your front door. We were on the 12th floor with very nice views of Diamond Head and the ocean. The rooms were very...

This hotel is in a great location far enough from the heart of Waikiki to be quiet but still only a short walk away. Rooms are large and comfortable and wifi is decent. Staff were all very helpful and the pricing while not great is ok. They have bikes available for free, which is great, however they are desperately in...

Wes at the front desk is fantastic. He was always polite and helpful. We traveled with a group, so I didn't select this hotel. Even so, it's really modern, the rooms are clean. However, it just lacked a few things. No pool or hot tub. No workout facilities and no direct beach access. Also, we were on the third floor...

This is my second time at this property. I was there when it first opened (different owner). Pros: Small, quiet property. Staff are very nice and attentive. It felt like we were the only ones there. There was a shuttle that went to all their other properties in addition to Ala Moana mall. It is across the street from as...
