Resort has numerous on-site activities and more than 20 restaurants and bars
Expensive daily resort fee
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.

Location, location, location: this megaresort and convention destination sprawls over 22 acres on Waikiki's widest stretch of beach, with the green lawns of neighboring Fort DeRussy creating a buffer zone to the high-rise lineup of central Waikiki.



Choose the Alii Tower, the most recently renovated of the resort's five towers. It has its own lobby lounge, reception, and concierge, and even its own pool and bar; it's like a hotel within a hotel.

Travel + Leisure


Almost a city unto itself, the resort has five pools, including the largest in Hawaii, 100 shops, the Mandara Spa, and its own menagerie, including parrots, penguins, and turtles.

Condé Nast Traveler


For many travelers, the most iconic hotel in Oahu's Waikiki (the busy, bustling tourist center of the island) is the Rainbow Tower at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
