It does look just like the pictures. This is the oldest hotel on Waikiki and will definitely be staying there next time! The service was nice and the staff courteous. It is right on the beach, you can't get closer.
Based on fellow trip advisor reviews we requested to stay in the historic wing and I am glad we did. Part of the attraction to the hotel was the old world charm which I don't think you would get from a high rise tower. We were in one of the rooms closer to the street but could still hear the waves, lovely! Keep in mind the hotel is right on the main drag so you will hear the busy street (particularly if on the street side of the hotel), including partygoers. This was fine for us but was definitely good to know before arriving.
Was quite small but and clean. There was a fridge but no stocked mini bar etc. This was not particularly a problem due to the location and it being easy to go out and get snacks (even at a late hour). There are numerous abc liquor and variety stores that are everywhere along the main street.
The Beach Bar
Beautiful, great atmosphere under the big tree hearing the waves roll in. They also have live music playing some nights under the tree which is great. The cocktails are ok but expensive, I guess you will get that particularly on Waikiki but the location and atmosphere under the tree is worthwhile.
One of the best things we loved about the hotel was the verandas. There is one out the back with comfy chairs (next to the veranda bar) and also one out the front with rocking chairs. Great to just sit back and soak it up!
