Nice location, 10 minutes walk to Waikiki, rooms are small and need to be refreshed, rooms and food are 20% too high according to me. Parking is $32 a night! Staff are friendly. Looks like a grand hotel ... back 20 years ago.

Stayed: August 2018, travelled as a couple

We started our Honeymoon on Oahu with 6 nights at this beautiful Hotel. Rooms are clean, service is very good and hotel staff always be pleasant. We really can recommend the Ocean Front Waikiki Deluxe room. Best view, you will wake up every day in a paradise with relaxing ocean sound. Parking Service is as well a good recommendation otherwise you need to park outside the hotel (watch out the parking zones and times). Hotel has a very good location, you can reach every destination easily.

Room Tip: Ocean Front Waikiki Deluxe room, highest floor which you could get.

The location was very good on Waikiki Beach, but away from the crowds in Honolulu. The restaurant, Hua Tree is outdoors in the shade of the trees. Great view and great meals, especially breakfast and lunch. The service was also very good. We stayed there for a week. Would definitely go back.

If you want a room you can relax in and have an ocean view, you need to upgrade to a superior room or suite. The basic ocean view was a balcony but only one straight chair and small table in the room. The bathroom is useable, but only for one person at a time. Even with the upgrade, its at a lower cost than the hotels on the beach downtown with a very nice room.

Room Tip: Best hotel on the beach with a top restaurant to relax and enjoy Waikiki next to the park.

Perfectly positioned front-and-center on a mellow section of Waikiki beach that's patronized largely by Honolulu athletes, singles and families, close to Diamond Head, and removed from the bustle and noise of central Waikiki's forest of towers, the 9-story, mid-century-modern New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel is serene and lovely, and cherished by locals for its casual style. I would say that locals recommend the hotel above all others in Waikiki because of its moderate prices, its location "at the quiet end of Waikiki" -- and because it embodies the laid-back, open-air style of island life. But, if you need the clubs and fine dining choices that Waikiki offers, they're just a 10-minute walk west along the scenic beach promenade along adjacent Kapiolani Park. This venerable park, given to the City of Honolulu by King Kalakaua in 1888 to remember his queen, surrounds the hotel with wide open lawns, tall swaying coconut trees, shady banyan trees, flowering shower trees etc. To its credit, the Japanese-owned hotel has NOT been tarted up, or streamlined, or otherwise fussed over. Nothing trendy here! It's pure old-style, no-need modesty in a perfect setting. The clean rooms are smallish and reasonably priced -- and who spends time in their hotel room in Hawaii, anyway? The beach and park beckon, all day and moon-lit night. Just about every room has a great ocean or park/Diamond Head view. Service is low-key and friendly, island style. The open-air lobby bar must be one of the most glamorous rendezvous spots in Waikiki. The famous beach-front Hau Tree Lanai restaurant is expensive but worth it for its views of Waikiki and Honolulu, for its timeless menu, table-settings and service, and for its legendary hau-tree canopy, under which, they say, Robert Louis Stevenson once lolled. A breakfast, lunch or dinner there is a memorable experience. Last tip: parking on site is expensive, but there's lots of free and metered public parking all around the park. No nerve-wracking parking garages! Driving, getting anywhere else on the island, is generally much easier from the Kaimana than from congested central Waikiki with its crazy one-way streets. Easy in, easy out!

Room Tip: Ask for a Waikiki Beach/sunset view.

Had a wonderful time here with our two young kids. The rooms are a bit on the smaller side - but they are clean and well maintained. The only challenge for us was that the food in the restaurant in the hotel was extremely limited in terms of vegetarian options.

Stayed: April 2018
