Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

Picture a white sand beach surrounded by acres of tropical grounds, with water sports galore and five different pools to cool off in. This is the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Amble over to the huge beachfront Super Pool or if you have kids in tow perhaps the family activity pool will tempt you. With 18 restaurants, cafés and bars, you can dine somewhere different every night too. And we recommend finding a good spot to watch the nightly Hawaiian entertainment and the fireworks on the beach on Fridays.

Let me start by saying that I'm a loyal Hilton Honors member with nearly 200,000 points. I stay in Hiltons frequently and it's my preferred brand. There's a lot to recommend this property with multiple pools and its easy access to beaches, lagoons, and Waikiki. The staff is friendly and upbeat. But three things disappointed me. First, it is not the most relaxing or serene place. I was in the Taka tower and every night there is loud music to 11 pm. After 2 nights, I called the front desk and was switched to the quieter Kalia Tower two days later. I had asked for a quiet room at check-in so I'm perplexed that nothing was done to accommodate my request at that time. I get that some ambient music helps to set a mood, but the resort needs to do a better job balancing cover bands with the atmosphere that one might expect from a tropical getaway. Second, there's a nice pool for lap swimming in the morning. Knowing that families want to use the pool later in the day, I often will do laps in hotel pools at dawn or earlier. So there we were, another guest and I happily doing our laps with no one in sight, when a hotel staff member made us exit the pool because it didn't open until 8:00 am. It's not like a lifeguard was coming on duty at that time. It was just a random rule to enforce that I have never encountered at other Hiltons. On the last day, our flight wasn't until 5:30 pm. Nonetheless we had checked out by 9:00 am to go hiking and then to the beach. I asked if the hotel had a shower at the gym so that we could clean up before the flight. No shower at the gym but here was one we could use at the spa for $17. Again, not very accommodating. Read less

I stayed there while attending a conference at the Hawaii Convention Center, which is a short walk away. The staff is very helpful and attentive. Rooms are spacious, well appointed, and clean. The property adjoins the beach, which is very convenient. The downsides are first that the grounds are very crowded. It also features a tacky strip of shops that runs straight through the property; in my thinking, this detracts from what should be a relaxing island experience. Read less

Great location and good service. The check-in and check-out was smooth. The room was spacious and kept clean, towels and beddings were changed frequently and toiletries were replenished daily. The onsite fireworks was fantastic!

This is great place to stay and you can't beat the location. We were in the Rainbow Tower overlooking the lagoon which was great. The kids enjoyed the fireworks and visiting the Dairy Queen for ice cream. The room was clean as well. The only real issue we had was with the in-room refrigerator. My son takes medication that needs to be kept cold. A few days into our stay, I noticed that the refrigerator showed a temp in the mid 40s. I didn't think much of it and just adjusted the temperature down. But, when I went to take his medication out the following night, the refrigerator showed a temperature of 58 degrees. I called down for maintenance who came up and looked at the refrigerator. We were told it was an older model that they had been using and he got us a new one. The concern is that the medication was compromised due to not be chilled properly but they did bring us a new refrigerator quickly. Otherwise, we had no other issues. Read less
