I stayed here for 5 days in the beginning of May with a partial city view on the 10th floor facing the back of the hotel. The lobby is small yet clean, staff were friendly and accommodating. The elevators was the only minor issue during the whole stay, if it took too long, I used the stairs. (Good exercise) The...

I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel, the staff were friendly and the room was great! We had a street and a bit of the ocean view from our balcony. We asked for a double bed and got one, we even got a room upgrade (I'm not sure why...). In terms of location, it's a 5min walk to the beach,...

Received great room ratings. Location was perfect for us...less than 20 mins walk to Ala Moana Center where we caught the bus to our different adventures. Walking distance the other direction to the shops, restaurants, and main strip of Waikiki. A couple blocks away from the beach, literally speaking.
