Aloha

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Royal Hawaiian (Pink Palace) Hotel in Honolulu. It was fantastic to walk into that peaceful garden setting after the hustle and bustle of Kalakau Avenue. We chose to stay in the historical part of the hotel in preference to the newer tower. We figured if we had wanted a modern hotel, there was so many to choose from. The Royal Hawaiian is cool, calm and sophisticated - and almost from another era! I have to also say that one of their staff members, Shannon Dower, from the Security department, went above and beyond "exceeding the customer's expectations" and we cannot praise her highly enough. We left our computer bag in the hire car, and she managed to track it down for us. Not only that, but she insisted on taking us to the airport the next day - via the rental car company, to collect the computer bag, even though she was taking her 88 year old Mother out to breakfast. Naturally, we will also take our message of gratitude to her General Manager. Well done Sharon - and a million thanks! We have stayed at the hotel many times before and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be able to get away from the maddening crowd, yet still be in the heart of the action. We also recommend a sunset Mai Tai in the Mai Tai Bar, followed by a lovely dinner in the Azure Restaurant.

Iconic property

Stayed 2 nights but disappointed with service/housekeeping. Toiletries not replenished on second day, complimentary paper not sighted, staff busy with big convention & not available for other guests. Disappointed as we choose it as a special 2 nights to end our vacation.

Perfect location and great facilities; we had an enormous corner room. The staff was professional and unusually helpful. It is a beautiful hotel: quiet, convenient, luxurious, and well worth the price.

A lovely hotel. We were upgraded

A lovely hotel. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite for our three day stay. One small complaint: the rooms are not cheap at this hotel (which is fine as the quality is excellent) but I am finding it increasingly annoying having to pay for internet connections. As I am self employed businessman I have to have access to emails etc. Many fine hotels worldwide now offer internet connections free of charge. I make it a point not to stay again at hotels who do not offer this service

We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian

We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in January 2010. We have wanted to stay at this hotel for many years and we were not disappointed for one minute. It is truly gorgeous and the staff are wonderfully attentive. Everything was perfect and having fulfilled a dream, we are now ruined as far as ever wanting to stay anywhere else in Honolulu. We would recommend this hotel for couples.
