U.S. News Review

Recognizing The Royal Hawaiian isn't difficult at all. This bubble-gum pink property has dominated the Waikiki shoreline for more than 80 years. Don't worry: Recent renovations toned down the interior of this Luxury Collection property, with guest rooms now featuring only a splash or two of bright, bold patterns. Accommodations here also come with state-of-the-art amenities like LCD TVs, high-speed Internet access (for a fee) and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. Overall, previous guests have enjoyed staying at this hotel. Although you will have to rush to get a seat by the pool, you can always take advantage of how close The Royal Hawaiian is to the best stretches of Waikiki's midway sands instead. The property also houses the full-service Abhasa Spa, while fresh seafood can be enjoyed in style at the jewel-toned Azure Restaurant. But take note: Many visitors say that a stay at The Royal Hawaiian will cost you — in the opinion of some, a little too much. However, this hotel participates in the Starwood Preferred Guest rewards program, meaning members can cash in their points for perks.
