U.S. News Review

Opened in 1901, the Moana Surfrider was the first hotel to grace Waikiki's shores. And though the rooms here may be smaller than you'd find at other area hotels, this hotel hasn't lost its touch when it comes to pleasing Honolulu visitors. Previous guests describe this Westin-affiliated hotel as charming and are pleased to find that the accommodations house everything you'd expect from a Starwood property, including Westin's signature Heavenly beds, flat screen TVs and, in some cases, private balconies. (If not having your own private balcony is a deal-breaker, be sure to request a room in the Tower Wing.) Though many claim to have enjoyed their stay here, recent travelers are quick to gripe about Moana Surfrider's high room rates; however, members of the Starwood Preferred Guest rewards program can use points to cover the tab. Plus, the cost of this hotel covers access to live Hula performances and the on-site pool (which travelers particularly love). And for an additional fee, you can indulge in spa treatments at the Moana Lani Spa or top-notch cuisine and beverages at one of four restaurants and bars.
