“Great location, fabulous service”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

This is a good, reliable hotel. I have stayed at Holiday Inns allover the Asia/Pacific region and this one is a good quality example. As with all of them, the location is marvellous - it is surrounded by good eateries and plenty of shopping. Waikiki Beach is only a few metres walk away and the buses to Honolulu are easily found on Kuhio, right behind the hotel. On the down side, this hotel has no restaurant - disappointing as Holiday Inns are renowned for good quality food - that means there is no room service overnight. The closest place to get breakfast is the Beachcomber on Level 1, attached to Jimmy Buffets. This is okay - quite fine for breakfast, but don't expect a sumptuous buffet. The Waikiki area, renowned for good times and partying, can be noisy through the night, so you will need to be aware of this possibility - not the hotel's fault. Good coffee and the service is outstanding here. All in all, it was a good stay and I would come to stay here again.

Room Tip: You can see Waikiki Beach from most balconies - but I'm not sure if you'll get away from the...

We had a room on the 21st floor with a beautiful ocean view. Room was not huge but it was fresh and comfortably appointed (even for a family of four). Staff is very friendly and helpful when it came to accommodating a 6 pm checkout (for a small fee). Elevators were always quick and efficient. Laundry facility came in handy, too.

We ate at Jimmy Buffet's a couple of times for breakfast, lunch (volcano nachos!!!) and dinner-hotel guests received a discount for B and L). The location was walking distance to other great restaurants as well. Because we were so close to the very popular Cheesecake Factory we were able to run across the street to put our name down for dinner, took our flashy beeper back to the hotel and avoided the 45 minutes wait on the sidewalk like everyone else.

The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub although it would have been nice if it was open a little later than 6pm. We rented snorkel gear for the week $35 pp and snorkelled locally at Sans Souci beach by Kapiolani Park-grassy park with trees for shade if you want it.

We would definitley stay here again on our next trip back to Waikiki!

Room Tip: Request a quieter room on the higher floors. Ask if a late checkouts for 6 pm or 8 pm is possble i...

GREAT FIRST EXPERIENCE
We were recomenned this hotel by our travel agent, and I have to say it was terrible the room was on 3rd floor so we asked to me moved and so down we went to the 2nd floor no view at all. I had explained that this was our 1st time in Hawaii and we were from Australia. She jus sent us down further. I will never stay at this place again

Brilliant location for this hotel.

Stayed in March 2011 for a family holiday and left the day that the tsunami hit, i would very much suggest this hotel if your planning a stay at Waikiki.

Staff very friendly, brilliant pool area and the breakfast served in the on-site restaurant is good, also this hotel has a nice bar area and is very close to places to eat such as the cheesecake factory which is directly across the street and very popular.

The rooms are fairly basic and it doesnt seem that they offer any sort of executive rooms like most Holiday Inns, however my room had a view, coffee making facilities, fridge etc along with a decent sized TV.

would stay again if im ever out in this area again due to price and location

Everything was perfect for us, great views from the 24th floor. Nice to have a place to eat "in house" and discounted for those staying at the hotel. Pool was refreshing and the hot tub too.

The Holiday Inn Waikiki was a last minute choice when a private rental on the North Shore turned out to be a dump. So it was a rushed reservation via my cell phone. Booked an economy room and confirmed it with HI central via phone but when we got to the Holiday Inn Waikiki desk they said they were full. I showed the nice lady at the desk the confirmation email on my phone and after about fifteen minutes and a visit with the Manager we were in a 11th floor suite with a balcony facing the ocean and a great view of Waikiki as well as the abundant nightlife along Kalakaua Ave. for 7 nights at our booked economy rate.
Was nice having Jimmy Buffet's as the house resturaunt and bar as well as the little Surf Museum bar. Nice room with a great view, pool is tiny but we came for the Pacific. Just across the street was Duke's and we became regulars.

Room Tip: The higher the better

Stayed here January 16-20 2012. It's a pretty standard hotel but has everything you need at a reasonable price. To get to the beach you cross the street in front of the hotel, go to the left a little bit and then there is a path on the right just past the Cheesecake factory. You get towels for the beach by the hotel pool (which is tiny). The International Marketplace is next door, lots of tacky souvenirs but the food is fantastic! The front desk staff were helpful and friendly and there is an Expedia concierge desk where they will make dinner reservations for you or they can sign you up for an excursion. We went on a sea kayaking excursion and it was fantastic!
