Waikiki Resort Hotel

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

One of Waikiki’s favourite hotels, located just a stone’s throw from the beach and within easy walking distance of the resorts myriad shops, bars and restaurants. This is a very comfortable retreat with spacious rooms to relax in and a good range of mod cons. On the second floor is an L-shaped swimming pool with furnished sundeck — perfect for catching those rays in-between sightseeing. There’s also a mini spa for pampering and a 24-hour fitness centre just across the road should you feel the need to pound that treadmill! Seoul Jung is the hotel’s signature restaurant, serving delicious Korean dishes created by master chefs. Ilima is the place to go if you feel in need of an American classic such as Caesar Salad or New York Steak Sandwich. The latter also serves a variety of Japanese dishes so, in the food department, you’re spoilt for choice! With its warm, friendly atmosphere and proximity to all local attractions, this is a great choice for families and couples to enjoy an Hawaiian holiday in the sun.

Literally two minutes from the beach, so many places nearby. Yummy on site restaurant, closed at 1:30pm. 24hr restaurants really close by. Unfortunately did not have a heated pool, towels only in the basement, ice machine only on 2nd floor.

View from the room was spectacular. That's because we had clear, unobstructed view of the new years fireworks. The hotel is dated, but worth cost I paid for the room. There was a sofa in the room that didn't look right given its placement and the size of the room. Other than that, the room was great. I would stay here again.

I chose this hotel as a base because it was near my niece’s apartment. The hotel is located in great location- 1 block away from the beach. The room was clean and comfortable.

I chose this hotel as a base because it was near my niece’s apartment. The hotel is located in great location- 1 block away from the beach. The room was clean and comfortable. Housekeeping did a great job with daily cleaning. Also, hotel staff friendly. I didn’t have a car but I inquired about parking which is definitely much less than other hotels nearby. Also, resort fee was reasonable and much less than other hotels. There is a swimming pool but I didn’t use. I borrowed beach towels which were big, thick, and good quality. I asked for late check out which they accommodated me - only wanted to check out 1 hour later. I had Expedia package bundle with flights. Overall, it was an excellent hotel and deal I got from Expedia. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Read less

The hotel is old and needs an update, yet it makes up for a great location, cleanliness, helpful and friendly staff from housekeeping, front desk, laundry to restaurant. Enjoy the free dvd movies, water refill, breakfast, and 20% off dining. Suzie at the front desk did a great job of upgrading us to a different room since our booked room was… Read more
The hotel is old and needs an update, yet it makes up for a great location, cleanliness, helpful and friendly staff from housekeeping, front desk, laundry to restaurant. Enjoy the free dvd movies, water refill, breakfast, and 20% off dining. Suzie at the front desk did a great job of upgrading us to a different room since our booked room was not available when we checked in due to another guest overstaying their check out time. We would definitely stay again when we return to Waikiki. Still waiting for an email (instruction on obtaining) our cash rewards. Read less

The place was better than good for us - more value than those right next to the beach, but still in good location and shape. The only downside was that the windows were shaking when windy, bothering a bit while sleeping.
