Queen Kapiolani Hotel

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

Named after the beloved wife of Hawaii’s last king, Queen Kapiolani is something of a Waikiki landmark, paying homage to Hawaii’s majestic heritage and unique culture with a modern twist. Overlooking the sandiest stretch of Waikiki Beach, guests can enjoy stunning views of Diamond Head from the balconies of their newly renovated rooms, each and every one of them furnished in breezy Island style. As a change from the beach, laze beside the pool instead, dipping in every now and again to cool off. Although there are restaurants all around you, the hotel’s own Kulana is highly recommended, not just for buffet favourites but for its sweeping panoramic views! Pre-dinner, chill awhile at the Deck Pool, sipping on your favourite cocktail – a Mai Tai perhaps?

Had both type of shades black out and see thru new and not Dusty. Colorfully designed with the island feel.CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN! HOUSEKEEPING is 5 STAR! Gerald & Lenie were an awesome team! Paid attention to us as guests and accommodated us accordingly. They arrived everyday smiling & were so friendly and helpful.They gave us extra trash bags daily for wet clothes and dirty diapers. Repleneshed all toiletries daily without asking. Removed all dirty towels and arranged new sets like the first day. They talked story and made us feel at home. They offered what we always were just about to ask! A++ Thank you both so much! We will be coming back again and again! Read less

Super close to the beach, right across from the zoo, and close to the shopping areas. Friendly service and great amenities (pool, cafe, restaurant). My only minor complaint is the restaurant closes between meal services.

Very glad we chose this spot and would book again. Read less

Neat, tidy and attentive staff. Great location. My only problem was the aircon was very loud and I couldn’t work out how to make it quiet. I should have asked for help, so my own fault. But I was very happy with everything else. Would book again but would not be shy in asking for help next time.
