Everything that can be said has been said about this hotel. The Staff will always make or break a stay whatever the condition of the hotel. The Staff of the Renew were second to none. The hotel surroundings were quiet, peaceful and allowed you to relax after a hard days sightseeing. It will not be everyone's cup of tea, but...

The hotel has been refurbished and the lines are clean, simple, Japanese in flavor. The rooms are immaculate; the hot, needle shower is most welcome after a day of sight-seeing. The lobby has intimate alcoves. The continental breakfast is replete with fruit, yogurt, pastries, juices and a great island coffee. The staff is knowledgeable and sincerely seeks to make your...

We just got back from our stay at the Hotel Renew and I am just thrilled by our experience there. I am very, VERY picky about the hotel we stay in so the reviews and the great rate we got won me over. Usually, it is just my husband and I traveling but this was our first "family vacation". That...

The people at Hotel Renew are fabulous. They are friendly and extremely helpful. We even had a concierge refuse a tip! Our room was lovely, contemporary, great bed and linens. The rooms are not huge but well appointed. I wish all hotels were this nice and well staffed.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Renew for 5 nights during the first week in April. Let me begin by stating that I am VERY picky about hotels, and can assure anyone staying at this hotel - you'll have nothing to worry about. Now, I wasn't looking for a "resort-type" hotel, and if that is what you want -...

I was very impressed with Hotel Renew. From the moment we arrived, Robert Cantu made us feel "at home". Everyone from Grace, Kris, Paul, Robert and all of the others that I'm forgetting now made this the best, most memorable and relaxing vacation I have ever taken. I would highly recommend the Hotel Renew and will definately consider it for...

I absolutely loved this botique hotel. it's not the cheapest place on earth, but so are most hotels on Waikiki. relatively small hotel, which i found to be very well-designed. the rooms were spacy, well equiped with everything. private safe, big screen LCD, free WIFI, free beach-thingies you can get from the front desk (as beach towels, beach sits etc)....

We really enjoyed this intimate boutique hotel with all the friendly, helpful staff. The location is half a block from the beach and main strip. Close to the zoo, aquarium, public transportation and nearly anything else you want. The Renew has a daily pass agreement with a great gym just 2 blocks away, so is better than most hotel facilities...

I picked Hotel Renew based on its #1 TripAdvisor rating and was not disappointed! Firstly the location was fantastic - right near Waikiki beach and close to bus stops.
