    Prince Waikiki
    Honolulu, HI
    #3 in Best Hotels in Waikiki, Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1079 reviewsTripAdvisor (1079)

    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.

    The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort
    Honolulu, HI
    #4 in Best Hotels in Waikiki, Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 4397 reviewsTripAdvisor (4397)
    Free WiFi

    Recognizing The Royal Hawaiian isn't difficult at all. This bubblegum pink property has dominated the Waikiki shoreline for almost 90 years. Guest rooms here feature splashes of bright, bold patterns and feature amenities like flat-screen 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 expensive 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 the Marriott Bonvoy program, meaning members can cash in their points for perks.

    ‘Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach
    Honolulu, HI
    #5 in Best Hotels in Waikiki, Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 609 reviewsTripAdvisor (609)
    Free WiFi

    Opened in 2018, Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach boasts a sleek and simple design, allowing its guests to focus on the natural beauty of Honolulu. About 60 steps from the iconic Waikiki Beach, this resort welcomes sun-seekers and provides a concierge desk that can arrange everything from sailing to snorkeling. The property's $40 daily resort fee includes access to the Island Club and Spa's fitness facility, fitness classes, a $20 spa credit, in-room Wi-Fi access and additional perks. After working up an appetite, guests can take advantage of the two full-service restaurants on-site, as well as two bars and a breakfast buffet. Accommodations have views of the city, the mountain or the water, and all of them boast minifridges, Keurig coffee makers and flat-screen TVs. The hotel's rooftop infinity pool impressed recent guests, but many past visitors complained that there were too many children in the pool, especially since the hotel already offers a dedicated pool for children. In addition to the rooftop, both kids and parents were delighted by the 'Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach's 280,000-gallon lobby Oceanarium (a massive aquarium.) Keep in mind that because this resort is part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts family, members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    #6 in Best Hotels in Waikiki, Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4559 reviewsTripAdvisor (4559)
    Free WiFi

    Located within walking distance of the Ala Moana Center shopping mecca and the powdery sands of Waikiki Beach, The Modern Honolulu combines style and swagger with the surfer vibe that many visitors expect from Hawaii's capital. The boutique hotel's many guest rooms include flat-screen TVs and glass-encased showers, plus complimentary Wi-Fi. Travelers say their stays here couldn't have been better, attributing their experiences to the hotel's excellent customer service, location and top-notch amenities, especially the pools. Guests can lounge by two pools — Sunrise is for everyone, and Sunset is adults-only — or indulge at The Grove, which features a romantic outdoor atmosphere with views of the pool. If you're planning to drive to explore the surrounding area though, be sure to keep in mind that valet parking is fairly expensive here.

    Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort
    Honolulu, HI
    #7 in Best Hotels in Waikiki, Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 17102 reviewsTripAdvisor (17102)
    Free WiFi

    This sprawling, 22-acre resort is conveniently located next to northern edge of Waikiki Beach, offering access to both the sands and the downtown area. Features of the hotel grounds (like the secluded manmade lagoon and the tropical gardens complete with exotic birds) may be reminiscent of a remote Hawaiian jungle, but if you're looking for peace and quiet, you've come to the wrong place. The Hilton Hawaiian Village offers kid-friendly activities like snorkeling and sailing on the hotel's catamaran, and the resort also features 20 restaurants and bars to satisfy every member of the family. Meanwhile, the Waikiki Starlight Luau – which is held on the premises – is certainly a fun way for a family to spend an evening. Most travelers enjoy the long list of amenities, but others were not pleased with the high resort fee ($35 per day). However, Hilton Honors members may want to book a room here to earn and redeem points.

    Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort
    Honolulu, HI
    #8 in Best Hotels in Waikiki, Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 6522 reviewsTripAdvisor (6522)
    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.

    Hilton Waikiki Beach

    #9 in Best Hotels in Waikiki, Honolulu - Oahu
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 5089 reviewsTripAdvisor (5089)

    Located about four 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 location and attentive service staff at this Hilton. 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. In addition to a 24-hour eatery, guests will also find two bars, a pool (where one of the bars is located) and fitness center. Because of this hotel's ties to the Hilton brand, Hilton Honors members can cash in points for free nights stays.

    Sitting along Waikiki Beach's coveted sands, the Sheraton Waikiki is one of the larger hotels on the Honolulu shore. That can be both good and bad. On one hand, recent guests say there is plenty to do both on-site and off. On the other hand, some visitors say this hotel can feel crowded – not only are there dozens of travelers milling around, but this Sheraton's proximity to the convention center makes it popular with business travelers, too. However, many visitors are willing to brave the crowds for access to the Sheraton Waikiki's excellent location in the heart of the action. In terms of amenities, there are two oceanfront pools and cultural activities such as hula lessons and arts and crafts on-site. The hotel also features a few dining options to choose from, though dozens of restaurants sit within walking distance of the front door. Plus, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points here.

    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 Marriott Bonvoy 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. 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.

    It's easy to confuse this hotel with its sister, the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, which sits less than a mile northwest along the Waikiki shore. Both have similar offerngs but what sets this hotel apart is its location. Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach sits just steps away from Waikiki Beach, with a great selection of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of the resort. Guests appreciated this convenience, but what really stood out about this Outrigger is the attentive service staff and gorgeous ocean views. Previous visitors were also impressed with the size of the guest rooms here, which come dressed in tropical decor and feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and private balconies. Should you need a little more R&R, relax poolside with a good book before sitting down to a seafood feast at one of the hotel's restaurants. For a true Hawaiian experience, make sure to partake in the recommend the Hula Grill.

    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. Still, a stay here will grant you easy access to Honolulu's most popular beach area, as well as a decent array of hotel facilities. The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach encompasses the full-service Na Ho'ola Spa, a sprawling swimming pool and three restaurants. And during your stay, the hotel invites you to participate in the complimentary cultural activities, which include ukelele lessons and Hawaiian arts and crafts.
