Good Option

Jan 27th, 2020

Only stayed a couple of days, but enjoyed the location and hotel for the most part. The pool was small, but we booked beach chairs so it worked out fine. I would stay again. I also liked the location which was close to many shops and restaurants. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Exceptional... but make sure you know these things...

Jan 26th, 2020

The picture of what you think you are getting may not be what you get. When we checked in for our "ocean view" room, we were given a room that looked at palm leaves. In between there were (very small) glimpses of the beach/ocean. After talking to the manager we were moved twice and finally settled in a room that was what we had reserved. From that point forward the stay was divine. Service was great, and housekeeping was exceptional. Do the turndown service... it was a great addition! Tip: do not plan early check-in. It won't happen, but they do have some lounges for you to change if you want to go to the beach until your room is ready. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Awesome hotel experience

Jan 21st, 2020

The hotel is amazing. The surf unbelievable. The mai tai bar is such a cool quaint way to end the day. Darrell S is amazing. Try the Mule and the Cauliflower wings at sunset. Cheers. We met so many friendly people. The atmosphere is not snobby. We really enjoyed our stay. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

A wonderful historic hotel

Jan 20th, 2020

If you want sleek and shiny - don’t stay here. This is an historic hotel, lots of uniqueness and extremely well run. We stayed under the American Express platinum/centurion fine hotels and resorts program. This is our 2nd trip to this particular property. We had a lovely oceanfront lofted suite, clean nice large bathrooms, very nice. Don’t go cheap on the rooms and we recommend that you do a package that includes breakfast daily. Otherwise it will cost you $100/couple for breakfast. The staff is exemplary- from bellmen to check in to housekeeping - the pool/beach staff - everyone is just so helpful and accommodating. They just seem to take pride in what they do - which is 5 star service in a Great historic hotel. Note: beach chair reservations - make them early - or they fill up. It does cost to reserve chairs and it’s worth it. Enjoy! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

The Spirit of Aloha

Jan 19th, 2020

The Royal Hawaiian Hotel is historic, holds prime majestic position on a world famous beach and is five star hotel. Many hotels around the world can claim similar attributes, but this hotel has something that very few others can claim - the Spirit of Aloha. I am a return guest of this very special hotel, and each visit reminds me without reservation, that the people that work there are the reason this property is a standout in the competitive luxury hotel market. Every associate interaction is greeted with warmth and excellent genuine service that not only makes me feel so very welcome but also appreciated. My room was in the historic wing of the hotel which was built in 1927 (a complete refurbishment of the hotel was completed in 2009). My room had beautiful uninterrupted view of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. The high ceilings and classic interior of the room took me back to a more glamours time. It was spacious, very well appointed with a super comfortable bed. The bathroom had an operable window with a beach view also - a real treat whilst showering. All public areas of the hotel are airy and regal, you feel you are somewhere special. You can almost not believe the noise and vibrant activity of Kalakaua Ave, which is just a stone throw away from The Royal Hawaiian, disappears as soon as you cross the threshold onto the hotel property. It is a serene oasis with lush tranquil gardens. The gentle trade winds bring the coconut palms to life and almost seem to whisper to you the proud knowledge they hold of the legendary guests and royalty that have walked these grounds before you. The Mai Tai Bar is a must, to not only enjoy the famous cocktail they are named after, but to witness what I call "Mai Tai Magic". The team behind the bar are masters of their craft, but also great story tellers. It is a great spot to witness sunset each evening. Even a solo visitor will feel part of this family. Azure Restaurant has never disappointed me. It is a premium offer and you will pay for the experience, but it is well worth it. If travelling solo I highly recommend sitting at the Azure bar to eat. The bar staff will take you on a culinary journey with wines to match that you will never forget. The Royal Hawaiian is the only hotel (that I know of) that offers food and beverage service on the beach. I strongly advise booking your beach chairs and umbrella in advance of your visit as they do sell out quickly. The Waikiki Beach Boys are at hand to set you up with ample towels and advice on surfing and swimming. If you enjoy history, I highly recommend taking the Historic Tour of the hotel. Its free and offers wonderful insight into a bygone era. Overall, this hotel is well worth a visit whilst on Oahu. Shopping, restaurants, cafes and many other things are within walking distance. The location on Waikiki Beach is the best of any of the other hotels and the people that work there will captivate you with The Spirit of Aloha and you will be coming back again and again like me.
