    #2 in Best Hotels in Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2951 reviewsTripAdvisor (2951)
    Free WiFi

    The Kahala Hotel & Resort — located about 3 miles southwest of Diamond Head on the coast of the Kahala neighborhood — has played host to a long list of ritzy clients.

    The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort
    Honolulu, HI
    #3 in Best Hotels in Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3967 reviewsTripAdvisor (3967)
    Free WiFi

    Recognizing The Royal Hawaiian isn't difficult at all. This bubble gum pink property has dominated the Waikiki shoreline for almost 90 years. Guest rooms here feature splashes of bright, bold patterns and feature amenities like LCD TVs, high-speed internet access and in-room coffee makers. Overall, previous guests 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 Azure Restaurant. But take note: Many visitors say that a stay at The Royal Hawaiian will cost you. However, this hotel participates in both the Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest programs, meaning members can cash in their points for perks.

    Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
    Kapolei, HI
    #4 in Best Hotels in Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 5447 reviewsTripAdvisor (5447)
    Free WiFi

    Flanked by the white sand beaches of Ko Olina on the southwestern coast of Oahu, Aulani brings your favorite Disney characters to life amid lush Hawaiian scenery. The resort's accommodations range from standard guest rooms to three-bedroom villas and they include minifridges, Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. Obviously, this resort was designed with kids in mind: Aulani invites families to take advantage of the kid-friendly pools and water play areas, as well as the resort's own snorkeling lagoon, Rainbow Reef. Should parents need some alone time, they can drop the kids off at Aunty's Beach House for supervised activities and head off to the spa for a massage or to the fairways of the Ko Olina Golf Club. Aulani receives high praise from previous guests, who describe this Disney hotel as relaxed and lovely. Still, some travelers mention that the resort's remote location may not be the best for guests looking to experience the sights of Honolulu.

    Prince Waikiki
    Honolulu, HI
    #8 in Best Hotels in Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 415 reviewsTripAdvisor (415)

    The Prince Waikiki earns praise from visitors for its impeccably attentive service staff and cozy rooms. Travelers raved about the guest rooms, often describing them as spacious, eye-catching and very comfortable. All accommodations at the Prince Waikiki feature LCD Smart TVs, wireless internet access and minifridges. And since this is an all-oceanfront hotel, every room offers ocean views from its large windows. Perhaps the hotel's best quality though is its convenient locale; the popular Ala Moana Center and the Ala Moana Park are less than a mile from the hotel – an easy walk; plus the hotel offers shuttle service to Ala Moana Beach. The Prince Waikiki also receives praise for its on-site facilities (which include a day spa and a pool) and its expansive golf course, which boasts 27 scenic holes.

    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    This boutique resort on Oahu's northern shore – about 45 miles northwest of Waikiki Beach – is popular among avid movie- and television-buffs: Turtle Bay Resort was featured in the film, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," and the the hit television show "LOST" used the resort's grounds as a backdrop. It's easy to see why Hollywood is so infatuated with Turtle Bay: The property encompasses roughly 850 acres of Hawaiian flora, fauna and shoreline. Inside, you'll find spacious guest rooms, each boasting gorgeous ocean views, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Outside of the rooms, amenities remain abundant. There's golf courses, a spa, fitness classes, a tennis center, multiple restaurants, a luau experience, water sports activities and much more.

    Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort
    Honolulu, HI
    #10 in Best Hotels in Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 6342 reviewsTripAdvisor (6342)
    Free WiFi

    Just like its name suggests, the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort can be found along the midpoint of Waikiki Beach, an obvious plus for any Honolulu hotel. The Outrigger Reef is within walking distance of the many shops that are housed within Waikiki Beach Walk shopping complex. But you don't have to stray too far from the resort to have a fun-filled day. This Outrigger property boasts its own list of amenities, including the LaáKea Spa Hawaii, a 24-hour fitness center and surf lessons on the beach. And let's not forget the pool, complete with several chaise loungers, whirlpool spas and food and cocktail service. Meanwhile, the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort's guest rooms earn praise from previous guests for their views (travelers recommend requesting a room that overlooks the ocean), as well as their private lanais (balconies). Visitors also give kudos to the eager-to-please service staff, but the standout for many is still the location. Though there are many eateries within walking distance, don't overlook the on-site Kani Ka Pila Grille, which features live Hawaiian music nightly.

    Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa

    #12 in Best Hotels in Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1111 reviewsTripAdvisor (1111)
    Free WiFi

    This member of the Marriott portfolio receives mixed reviews from its clientele. On one hand, recent travelers love the hotel's proximity to Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. On the other, some complained that the accommodations are worn and in need of an update, making them not worth the lofty room rates. You'll have to be the judge. The hotel's 1,310 rooms are decked out with minifridges, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers. Plus all accommodations come with their own lanai (the Hawaiian term for balcony) that offers views varying from a cityscape to a partial or premium oceanfront view. During your stay, you'll have access to two outdoor pools and a whirlpool, as well as the on-site fitness center. The Waikiki Beach Marriott also houses several restaurants serving anything from fresh seafood to classic Italian fare. And because of its brand ties, this resort participates in the Marriott Rewards loyalty program.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 5627 reviewsTripAdvisor (5627)
    Free WiFi

    The massive Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa's two towers occupy almost an entire city block along the shores of Waikiki Beach. Accommodations here feature private balconies (all of which overlook the ocean), 55-inch LCD flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Past guests do warn of the daily resort fee, which might come as a bit of a shock when it comes time to pay your final bill.

The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach encompasses the full-service Na Ho'ola Spa, a sprawling swimming pool and three restaurants.

    Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa

    Free WiFi

    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 accommodations here house everything you'd expect, including Westin's signature Heavenly beds, flat-screen TVs and, in some cases, private balconies. 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 or Marriott Rewards programs can use points to cover the tab. Plus, the cost of this hotel covers access to live hula performances and the on-site pool. 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.
