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?

This is a really great location. Over the road from the zoo so maybe the slightly quieter end of Waikiki. Room is small but you spend most of your time out in the sun anyway. The people are helpful and friendly the food good and buffet breakfast was the best to fill you up for a day of activities.

This is a beautiful hotel in a very good location. We were able to enjoy all the hotel and local amenities with ease. Our booked tours picked up within a block of the hotel. I walked to the zoo, aquarium, beaches, restaurants and bars. Our room had a beautiful view of Diamond Head, ocean and the pool. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I really was impressed with the Queen Kapiolani Hotel. It is an older hotel but our room was immaculate and the linens and beds were super comfy! The shower was one of the best I’ve ever experienced and loved the toiletries! Front desk personnel were superb......very friendly and helpful. I really liked the location of this hotel as it is across the street from the zoo, a very short walk to Diamond Head and of course the beach is very close by.......maybe 5 minute walk, probably less. The view of Diamond Head from the pool and restaurant is beautiful. The welcome drinks were nice, too. Food at the restaurant is tasty but super expensive......lots of restaurant choices are close by. Read less
