Overview

Prime spot on Waikiki Beach
Stays here are pricey

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.
