Great Location

We were upgraded to a balcony room which was very pleasant with a view to the beach, the room was good with only 2 downsides, number one pet hate as with just about all hotels is poor lighting (sometimes it's nice to be able to see what you're packing away at night) the other is the very noisey aircon which is right beside the bed, you couldn't sleep without it on as it was too hot even in december but it was a bit like trying to sleep on the plane with a seat next to the engine! Having said all that, i would recommend as the location was great, the room was nice and the staff faultless. There were plenty of eating places and shops nearby, along with the bus to alo moana shopping centre right outside.

Honeymoon stop off

We had only stayed for one night at hotel renew. All the staff were lovely! Hotel was very trendy and in a good location. Free cocktail voucher which was one of the best cocktails that we had in Hawaii. We also had champagne and chocolates delivered to the room along with a lovely card! The only thing we would comment on was the air con as was very noisy. But it here than that we were very happy with our stay! And would recommend for value for money!

Holiday

Great hotel. It's a very short stroll across the road for Waikiki Beach. The staff are helpful and friendly. Room clean with modern decor. Great value even with resort fee. The bus stop is really just down the street so you can get to most tourist sights conveniently using the public bus. The resort fee is $25 per day and gets you access to the the gym and pool at the Marriott Hotel ,short stroll down the street, also beach towels and mats, free Wi-fi and Internet and DVD/playstation and continental breakfast. The only things that slightly disappoint was the ventilation in the bathroom, and the air-conditioning can be noisy, also the lighting is dim. Having said that we will still return to this hotel next time we go the Hawaii.

Close to buses- just down the street- get bus timetables from Ala Moana Customer Service Center, close to dining - every cuisine is available in Waikiki, close to beach- just walk across the road.

Ultimate service

High level of overall service. Departing on a night flight out of Honolulu we greatly appreciated the offered complimentary 1 hour convenience usage of one of the hotelrooms which allowed spending the afternoon at the beach.

Excellent smaller hotel

Great location, excellent room overlooking Waikiki Beach, very helpful and friendly staff. Downside - breakfast seriously miserly! I also had an issue with the Hotel charging $100 to my credit card without telling me!! This was despite full prepayment of room cost. The $100 was re-credited about a week later, but it is certainly not ethical (and probably illegal!) to charge a card without telling the card owner.

Disapointing staff

Bad experience because we had to leave the hotel on the second day because of an emergency, having payed 8 nights. Couldn't change or cancel the rest of the prepaid nights although the concierge told us that they had talk to reservation site to cancell the 5 nights left. Even they asked us to leave the hotel at 1 PM of the third day despite we had already prepayed 8 nights. Terribly disapointed. I'd definetely not be back again there.

Staff incredible!

Staff sent cheese and crackers to my room to welcome me back even though when I was previously there the hotel was a different brand. And a bottle of champagne on my birthday when I didn't even tell them I was in Honolulu for my birthday! Very little amenities to speak of so price point a bit high. City view oom is elegant but very dark - had to keep blind down as the view looked directly at another building. Feathered comforter very heavy for Hawaii!!!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

The hotel lends out beach mats and large towels. The large towel helped to block the sunlight from the bathroom door in the morning so that the room wasn't too bright at 7am (rooms 05 and 06).
