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?

Overall the room was nice. Staff friendly. Room was clean. No hot tub or microwave and pool was not heated. Pool was small. Found free parking pretty close. Few good places to eat in the area. Next to the zoo. Few activities provided. Few channels on tv.

It is super close to everything downtown Honolulu Waikiki beach is right out side the front door. Street is a little noisy at night and there isn’t much parking unless you pay. Would book again for sure.

I wish the door to the hall went all the way to the floor or had some kind of blocker on it because the light from the hall at night shown into the room quite a bit. There was also one night we stayed that there was cleaning I think going on at the pool deck at 11:30 at night and it was very loud in our room. The pool deck was lovely! Wish we could have put up the umbrellas though. Other than those few things the stay was nice with great costumer service! Read less
