Well prepared staff. Every employee was well informed and comfortably understood the offerings of the hotel. Entire facility is clean and details are being watched. I am back a few weeks later to find the same knowledgable staff. Makes for a good place to stay. Kudos to everyone.

We stayed at this hotel for five nights, checking in on a Sunday and leaving Friday morning. I went with my parents for my dad's birthday trip. We stayed on the 11th floor, in a room with two very spacious king-sized beds. There was a small balcony that overlooked an outdoor pool of the hotel next door. Every morning we...

We stayed at the Laylow shortly after it reopened and were blown away by the change. The bar and roof deck overlooking Kuhio St. with live music and craft cocktails is a great place to spend an afternoon. The food and atmosphere are wonderful and the whole stay could not have been better.

It offers outstanding service, friendly staff, and the food is awesome at the Hideout restaurant! This is one of a few hotels in Waikiki That offers all king size beds.

We checked in on the day it reopened after renovation. Great location with easy access to Waikiki beach and shops. Very helpful and friendly staff. Very clean and the renovations were done with taste and brought the hotel into the modern era. Would highly recommend if you want somewhere convenient, yet very quiet and private.

This hotel saved our Oahu vacation! We originally checked into the Waikiki Marriott Resort and Spa and were so disappointed in the room. I received an email about this hotel opening, but with lack of photos on their website - I just didn't feel confident switching our reservation to this new hotel. Literally minutes after checking in to the Waikiki...

We checked in to the hotel on the day it re-opened, with trepidation as there were no reviews or photos of the hotel available at that time. It felt like a leap of faith. We were pleasantly surprised though. The staff are lovely and friendly, it's in a great spot in the middle of everything, but feels like a sanctuary...

A 1960’s Hawaiian Modern aesthetic in a lush garden surrounding sets the scene for a relaxed vacation vibe. Visitors are transported back in time through authentic mid-century furnishings and decor. Centrally located in the heart of Waikiki places you just a short walk to the ocean, restaurants, shops, and nightlife. The pool is the ultimate amenity, lush greenery, lounge seating and teak accents surround this communal gathering place.Classic cocktails, fresh fruit, a thatched roof, hanging plants, and woven lanterns create a remixed tiki vibe in close proximity to the pool. Enjoy an eclectic healthy menu of fresh fish, farm-to table dishes, craft beers on tap, and an extensive wine list in our warm greenhouse style restaurant. Memorable service moments, nostalgic details, tropical greenery, and modern comforts make for one-of a kind Hawaiian getaway. ... more   less
