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?

The staff was extremely accommodating, especially Kawai, the bellhop. He was able to meet our needs and answer our questions. I can't wait to go back. Read less

Spent our first four nights here of honeymoon. Rooms are small but the hotel is out of the busy downtown Wikiki. Very clean, and friendly service. Can't beat the view of Diamond Head! The hotel bar tenders were very friendly and the food was excellent at Deck. Would stay here again 100%!!
