The boutique hotel has brilliant interior design through and through. Definitely charming. Nice to be a block from the beach too. Trouble comes at breakfast time. They have 72 rooms. Breakfast area has only 4 2-person tables. Available only between 7:30-9:30. You do the math. It's easily filled up and people are waiting for you to finish so they can...

Dear BlueWhirl, Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of our hotel. I agree with you that our proximity to the beach is one of our many great attributes. The charming interior design you referred to is largely accredited to an acclaimed designer from San Francisco who was involved in every detail of our design. Complimentary continental...

Our stay got off to a bit of a rocky start as we had an initial issue with our room reservation--we requested a room with 2 double beds but got a single double bed instead. As my friend and I are just that, friends, we weren't about to share a small double bed. They didn't have any rooms with separate...

Hotel Renew is a trendy refreshing new hotel. As soon as you walk in the door, you feel relaxed. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. They went out of their way to accommodate my needs with no hesitations. The location is perfect because it is walking distance to everything and the beach is right across the street. The...

We stayed at Hotel Renew for the weekend as part of our honeymoon. We were greeted with delicious pineapple juice and cold washcloths, and the hotel lobby looked exactly like the pictures online. The staff was friendly and accommodating and our room was impeccable. We were on the ninth floor with an ocean view, and we were close to the...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Renew for two nights. Overall, we were very satisfied with the accomodations and will stay there again when we visit Oahu. The rooms are very modern and tastefully decorated (no cheesy Hawaiian comforters). The beds were very comfortably with high thread count linens. It was also very clean. The staff is helpful and...

Hotel Renew is a great boutique hotel in Waikiki. Reception area looks very nice and cool. A much different style than most other hotels in Waikiki, that is much older style in general. Rooms are nice and spacious, with a good cleaning standard. Bathrooms are also nice, modern and clean. Rooms have safe without charge. Breakfast is included, and is...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Renew for four days, and absolutely loved it. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and I relished the soft pillows and warm down comforters - talk about comfortable - we often found ourselves snuggled up in our room when we should have been out exploring Waikiki. The hotel's complimentary continental breakfast was also a...

Thanks to Trip Advisor, my husband and I decided to try out the Hotel Renew during our recent vacation to Honolulu and it was even better than we expected! This is a small "boutique-style" hotel located a block and a half from the beach with a fabulous staff and extremely comfortable rooms. We were able to book a "Fun in...
