Everything we were hoping for
This hotel came recommended by a friend, and they were spot on. The staff was very helpful, we ended up booking most of our day excursions through their concierge. The room was clean with up to date appointments. It turned out we were only two blocks from the beach and right on the major bus/trolley route through Waikiki, so taking public transit or getting to a designated pick up point was a breeze. The restaurant in the hotel served fresh, modern fare and best of all, is open 24 hours a day (which came in very handy since we got in well after midnight and were starving after the flight). The only negative, which is kind of relative, is that the wireless internet access is an additional fee and is not included with your room. This day and age where everyone is booking their trips and checking maps online this would seems like a thing that most people would need to make their stay more comfortable. Granted they do have a complimentary business center in the lobby, this is something that just adds to waste (I witnessed several people taking full advantage and printing dozens of pages of full color maps, menus etc. to avoid the internet fee). Overall a wonderful experience and we will certainly visit again.
