U.S. News Review

Located a few blocks north of the Honolulu Zoo, the Hilton Waikiki Beach hotel is a great option for families. Both Waikiki Beach and Waikiki Aquarium are within walking distance, and the on-site MAC 24/7 restaurant is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Recent guests laud the attentive service staff and the outdoor swimming pool (though some think it's on the small side). Also appreciated by guests are the rooms, which are appointed with Hilton's signature Serenity beds, island-inspired decor, flat-screen TVs and private lanais (balconies). For better views of the ocean, request a room on a higher floor; this will also help you avoid late-night noise from the streets below. But according to some travelers, this hotel is only really impressive to members of the Hilton HHonors rewards program (who can cash in points for free nights stays). For anyone else, a few discerning guests say that, though convenient, this property is nothing to write home about.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

“Two blocks from Kuhio Beach, this 37-story high-rise, located on the Diamond Head end of Waikiki, is great for travelers who want to be near the action, but not right in it.”

Oyster.com

“The rooms are the reason the Hilton is a good deal. They combine the base-level comforts of a midrange large chain operation — spaciousness, modern technology, cleanliness — with the aesthetics of a higher-end hotel and the amenities every room in Hawaii should have (that would be a balcony).”
