I had booked a room at the hotel directly with Mr. Kelly Bokin, Guest Services Supervisor, and I cannot thank him enough for the excellent services provided...from booking a room to checking in and checking out. The room provided was just the right size and accommodated my needs without any hassles.
It is away from the noise and crowd of Waikiki Beach but close to a major shopping mall (the Ala Moana shopping center), Wall Mart, Ross, and other convenient stores within short walking distance. It has a good restaurant adjacent to the hotel and located near other restaurants with varied cuisines of choice.
What I like best about staying at the Pagoda is the friendly atmosphere and excellent spirit of aloha displayed by the staff. I always stay at the Pagoda Hotel during my visits or transit through Honolulu and will continue to do so.
I would highly recommend the hotel to other visitors who are looking for a good reasonably priced place to stay in Honolulu.
