I was really looking forward to coming back to Waikiki but as soon as I drove into the hotel I was hit with extra fees. We booked this hotel because it was a little cheaper than the others in the same area. If you have a rental car you'll have to pay the 25 dollar a day valet fee not...

I've owned at the Imperial for 25+ years. It has gone through a number of transformations over that time and now seems to have really 'found its groove'. What makes this property so very special is the staff. They are outstanding. From the moment you arrive, the front desk folks are there to make you feel special and welcome. Todd...

We are owners and we love Imperial! It is clean and comfortable and right in the center of great activity...restaurants, shops, beach and access to any tour available is steps from the front door at the Sheraton. There is a Denny's downstairs and across the street is Ruth's Chris, Roy's and Nabu for the "foodie" and Starbucks, Subway, PF Changs...

We have a timeshare at this hotel but you can also book direct. The apartments vary - we have stayed in a studio and also a one bedroom unit - both very good. The one bedroom unit has 2 bathrooms as well as a fully equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher and oven. The lounge on the top floor has outstanding...

My parents have a timeshare here and booked it for my sisters visit to Oahu. They were told that we could stay there as long as we showed the confirmation number. At check-in we were turned away completely, no other options offered. The front desk wouldn't even allow me to call my parents so that they could explain. It was...

First of all, they would not let my sister and I check in since the timeshare was under our parents names. Our mother asked the "resort" if we needed any written permission for us to check in as their children and the staff said we were good to go. However, we still had to fax them permission. Once we finally...

My wife and I had a one bedroom place on the tenth floor. The rooms were small with a TV on the wall, a dining table and a couch in the living area. There was also a murphy bed. The kitchen had a microwaive and a fridge, but no dishwasher. Bathroom was so small you couldn't hardly turn around in...

The Imperial is nice because its not far from the beach but other than that I hate it here. My boyfriend was planning this romantic gesture here in Hawaii. He bought me an engagement ring and had a beautiful evening planned. When he went back to the room to check on it, it was gone. He placed it in a...

This hotel is old - definitely 'dated' - BUT - the location is great if you want 'in on the action' of downtown Waikiki Beach. Lewers Street has great restaurants and shops. You might have to walk a bit to get to a beach - but the pool at the hotel was fine and I can not say enough about...

“I liked the room facing away from the street. The sun didn't come into the windows and that street could be real noisey.”
