I've stayed at the Lagoon Tower and Kalia Tower before, so I had high expectations for the Grand Waikikian. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite and it did not disappoint. The room (separate bedroom, living room, kitchen) was nicely appointed and was very spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the room was nice and very quiet. The full kitchen...

Aloha and thank you for staying with us here at Grand Waikikian. Thank you also for taking the time to write your nice words. As you mentioned we are close to beach, there are many restaurants and shops inside Hilton Hawaiian Village for you to enjoy. We just want to clarify that our parking charge is $27/night for self-parking and...

Stayed at resort for 7 days. Awesome two bedroom condo with full kitchen and great family room. Needed a better guide to daily activities, wanted to do tai chi but only offered 1 day. Supposed to have room cleaned 1 day, but didn't happen. Concierge was awesome, very friendly and knowledgable. Location was great, with mall and lots of beach...

The Hilton Club and village is a lovely place to relax within a very busy city of Honolulu. We enjoyed walking along the beach, snorkeling, and taking the sail trips right at the resort. The musical performances were enjoyable as well especially some of the bands at the Tropics restaurant.

The Grand Waikikian HGVC was a great place to stay. It was centrally located in the Hawaiian Village. The overall staff was very attentive, professional, and friendly. HGVC was steps away from the beach. The lagoon was beautiful. The village has everything you need. There is so much to do within walking distance or step out front and catch a...

Thank you for your great review and comments. We like to think our resort is a great place to stay, too!

OMG...How can anyone have anything negative to say about this place. It's pure paradise. Yes it was other people there with kids but hell what do you expect from a vacation resort hotel. The Mai Tai's are true party starters. The Luau is a must. The rooms were definitely clean well until we tracked sand everywhere. The beds were perfect...

Clean rooms, inviting staff with welcoming presentation. Hilton Hawaiian Village is a great place for an all in one experience. You can catch a Luau, restaurants, shopping, and tour experience without needing transportation.

We have stayed at several of the Hilton Hawaiian Village towers. All are very good. This time we stepped it up a bit and stayed in the Grand Waikikian 3 bedroom Penthouse on the 35th floor. WOW! The service, amenities and views are first class.

This was our second time here and we still love it! Everything you need is on the property, pools, beach, lagoon, shopping, restaurants...no need to leave but if you do it is only a few blocks from downtown and more shops and restaurants. We have stayed in the hotel and the time share, both are wonderful. No complaints.
