This property is centrally located in the Waikiki Beach area on Kalakaua Avenue, the main drag for all the action in Waikiki. Even though the hotel is sited on the other side of the road from the beach side, it is a mere 5 minute walk to the beach. Ask the desk personnel for the quickest way to get to the beach. There is a convenient pathway which leads there very fast but you need to know the route.
Being on the busy stretch of Waikiki, it can be quite noisy day and night and even more so if your room is located above the roof of a lower nearby building whose massive air conditioning units can sound like non-stop jet engines. Just remember to keep the sliding glass doors closed.
If you want an unrestricted ocean view, this is not the hotel for you but if you are lucky, you can get a room with a glimpse of the beautiful Pacific.
While the amenities are adequate, the bathroom in my unit was starting to show its age through the wear and tear of time - nothing major but it just doesn't have the nice sparkling look of a newer or better upgraded facility.
This hotel is alright if you are not too particular about ambience. It is certainly not a resort-type property but has all the basics you need, especially if you are going to be outdoors most of the time.
The sidewalk in front of the hotel gets busy and exciting as night draws nigh with sidewalk performers and later at night with street walkers, if you don't mind that kind of thing.
