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?

Hotel and rooms are clean, staff are friendly, location is great. Had an ocean view room, so had a great sight of Diamond Head every day. Pool area was clean and comfortable, small and kind of retro pool.

Every one of the staff, front desk, housekeepers, valet, coffee shop treat each guest with special Aloha fitting the name of the hotel. It was a stressful time because of the Coronavirus but that did not stop the staff from giving their best.

We were there for a memorial service as my brother in law passed away, so the fun aspect was rather non existent, but the room we had had a wonderful and relaxing vibe. The only negative was the price of parking at $45 per night. Personnel were all friendly and welcoming and pleasant even amidst the Covid 19 scare Read less

This was a lovely hotel with wonderful service. The Deck restaurant with a view of Diamond Head is charming and had great food and cocktails. Our ocean view room was amazing! QK was also steps away from the beach and some great restaurants. Would definitely love to come back here again someday soon.

We had our wedding at QK in November with 75 guests. The venue is perfect! We had our ceremony on the deck, with a stunning view of Diamond Head. Our guests watched the sunset during cocktail hour on the deck before moving into the modern ballroom for our reception. Reina was an absolute dream to work with! She was very responsive, flexible and really took the time to address all of our needs. On the day of, Reina was instrumental in making sure everything ran smoothly and took care of many last minute details. We can’t thank her enough! Most of our guests were from the mainland and QK was the perfect location! Everyone loved the pool/deck area, hotel decor and being in such a convenient area. Julie was very helpful organizing our room block and making sure our guests staying at the hotel were well taken care of! The bellhops and valets were also super helpful in getting all of wedding stuff in/out of the hotel. Would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or any other event! Read less
