Love this place. Very convenient (location wise) and the staff is very friendly. Price is just right and on certain days you'll get a really good deal. One downside is parking but it's common around Waikiki area to be paying $25 per day for parking. Other than the parking, Skyline Hotel is always a great stay. Teri and Brian was...

The staff is great, friendly and accommodating. I have stayed there 3 times so far this year and look forward to staying there again. Beds were good, view on the pool side is awesome and the rooms were clean. Parking was $25 a day, not bad for Wakiki. Only 2 blocks to the ocean. Close to numerous restaurants ranging from...

This hotel is a bit older than the photos on website might have believe. But overall its quite good for the money. Tip: book city view room: The rooms are small but comfortable, but the best thing is the location. Only a short walk to the heart of the city, restaurants,bus stops, and most importantly the beach. I know some...

I took my teenage children (16 & 18 yrs) for their first holiday to Waikiki. I have been to Waikiki several times and found that many of the hotels are fairly average (due to their age) for the price you pay, unless you stay at a 4-5 star at hotel with a very high price tag. I was looking for...

I have stayed in many Aqua brand hotels and I was honestly pretty disappointed with this one. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't really great either. There is plenty of construction going on in front which was a little inconvenient. The parking garage is convenient but also $25 a day so make sure to add that on to your budget....

Expensive family trip to Hawaii with 2 kids and we were a little disappointed with the hotel, to be honest. We were promised wine & chocolates in the room as it was my 'big' birthday, but they never arrived. (Very minor, but don't promise if you can't deliver!) There was a lot of building renovation going on in the front...

We have stayed here for the last week and the best thing about it is the views seeing it is the highest building in Waikiki, so we have been told and it is very well situated. Only a few minutes walk to the main shopping area and a couple of minutes more to the beach . It is also right...
