Hilton Waikiki Beach

Honolulu, Oahu

Virgin rating

The hotel

This sophisticated hotel's sleek, modern décor is both fresh and reassuringly comfortable — no wonder the Hilton Waikiki Beach is one of Hilton's top ranking hotels for guest satisfaction. Bang in the centre of the Waikiki action, there are numerous shops, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Rooms enjoy amazing views over the Koolau mountain range or the Pacific Ocean and there are luxury products in the marble and stone bathrooms. Enjoy 24-hour dining in the hotel's unique MAC 24/7 restaurant, where the pancakes really have to be seen to be believed - of grab a Starbucks coffee and lunch to go as you head on a day exploring the Hawaiian landscapes. Of course, there's no pressure to do anything - simply laze by the rooftop pool and enjoy the tropical sunshine if you fancy.

I made a last minute booking. And probably one of the best decisions I made. Lorie, Michelle, and Chae was so amazing and lovely Front Desk Reps! Those 3 are a prime example of living up to Aloha Standards and the best customer service. Thank you ladies for all the help and making sure my keiki had an amazing time! Can’t wait to book another stay!… Read more

THE POSITIVES- LOCATION was a convenient walking distance to beach, restaurants and stores. STAFF at front desk and housekeeping was overall friendly enough. ROOM had a excellent oceanview that was nice to wake up to every morning. Beds were comfortable, had refrigerator and bathroom had the usual products Hilton gives you. OVERALL it was a typical Hilton hotel. THE NEGATIVES- ROOM was changed x 2 from our first request on the Hilton app. It was not clean upon arrival- dusty furniture and dirty floor. Light fixture over mirror was badly rusted- gross. Shower set up was awkwardly placed on other wall from door so had to get wet with cold water to turn it on. Updates would be nice along with more Hawaiian theme throughout hotel to make it feel like a resort. A microwave should also be in the room. Iron had a short in it and iron board filthy- probably never changed from the start. COMMUNICATION- could have been better, limited info in room and briefly mentioned in elevator screens. Hilton app was not detailed enough either. About where to get towels and the other amenities in the hotel. We were charged a resort fee for items we didn’t even get opportunity to use or know where to get. The Hilton WiFi code didn’t work and kept wanting to charge for standard. Just happened to see and read card in room that says stop by concierge desk in first 24 hours upon arrival for free gift we never got because we didn’t see card until past time. Why not mention this in the random phone call voice message we reviewed early the next morning that woke us up? BREAKFAST package not worth the extra cost- could not use it on room service or take out which was not clearly stated on website, so inconvenient for us and wasted money. It was also not good- waffles were terrible- how can you mess up waffles?, had better breakfast from the grab and go place or did Uber eats from IHOP. RESTAURANT is not 24/7. Dinner was OK except size of pizza small for the cost even in Hawaii. Did I already say the breakfast was awful? Ordered pick up via app and could not select individual items. Requested side of bacon when went to pick up the order which was not ready on time anyway. One night , the waitress with blonde hair saw me standing at front, didn’t smile or ask what I wanted, just rudely looked and walked by so I left and we never order from MAC 24/7 again. OVERALL there is nothing special about the room to make you feel special that your in Hawaii- other than if you get a good oceanview room on high floor. The cleanliness and theme of the room was also less than expected. The on-site restaurant was not good- we had better food and customer service elsewhere, even though less convenient location.

We spent our 31st Anniversary at the resort. It was an incredible experience. Beautiful location, fabulous staff, everything was either spotless or being cleaned the whole week we were there. Grateful for the opportunity to have visited this beautiful part of the world and to have stayed in the resort.

I arrived at the hotel night. The hotel really could use a makeover . It looks dated and compared to Mariott chain it does only offer very limited options to eat. The staff in this hotel is not the friendliest. They are not rude but more indifferent. Hardly can say hello/ aloha or smile . I paid premium to have an ocean view / front room. The room was ocean view but again is very dated . Furthermore there was some type of water leak in the bathroom that literally also made part of the rug in the bedroom wet. Since I arrived late I had to wait until the next morning after 10:30 before I was given a new room. It was at a higher floor level. The view is amazing but the room still is dated. Hilton hotels used to be top of the line. The quality has gone down over the years on the so called upscale resorts and I am not sure if I will pick another Hilton resort hotel. I am disappointed as this has been my first trip to Hawaii. Also this hotel is Not at the beach. I knew this but just wanted to share this with readers. The hotel is too expensive for the service, amenities and room quality you receive. Read less
