Waikiki Resort Hotel

Honolulu, Oahu

The hotel

One of Waikiki’s favourite hotels, it’s located just a stone’s throw from the beach and within easy walking distance of the resorts myriad shops, bars and restaurants. It’s 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 Cafe 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.

The staff were friendly and quick to accommodate our needs especially when our flight left just before midnight. Would stay here again. Read less

Great location in the central Waikiki but it won't necessarily break a bank to stay there. We had a double-bed room at 14th floor. The room is clean and the size is fine for my family (2 adults, 2 kids). It's nice to have a balcony with partial mountain view. The only thing to complain is lacking of mirrors in the room. There's only one mirror… Read more
Great location in the central Waikiki but it won't necessarily break a bank to stay there. We had a double-bed room at 14th floor. The room is clean and the size is fine for my family (2 adults, 2 kids). It's nice to have a balcony with partial mountain view. The only thing to complain is lacking of mirrors in the room. There's only one mirror over the bathroom vanity. It would be great if they have a dressing mirror because women need that. We didn't try their restaurant because there're plenty of good, local eateries down there. Btw, they charge $28 for overnight parking. Read less

Super cool place going to stay there again next time better than the Hilton for sure !!! The fact that it was literally one block from the beach beat any deal around. They have a breakfast buffet on site that is super good and the people were really polite . The people who worked at Waikiki resort really friendly and super accommodating.... I did lotta reviews and we got in one day early and stayed at the Hilton and I’m telling you for the money you spend for one Hilton room you can get a two bedroom suite !!!! I can’t think of any place else I would’ve stayed!!! We were pleasantly surprised.....I would recommend this hotel to anybody. Read less
