What an amazing hotel! The historic wing was built in 1927 and has an old hawaiian charm and serenity that you can't find at any other hotel in busy Waikiki. The best thing is the abundance places on the property to sit, relax, and take in the atmosphere. The people who work there also add to its allure. During our...

The service we experienced at the Royal Hawaiian was the best by far we've had in Honolulu. The best things about the room were the most comfortable beds and pillows and the views of the sunsets from our balcony! We love the Royal Hawaiian and will never stay anywhere else in Honolulu. Say what you liked best & least

This is a good hotel, not great, but well worth staying at. I would think it is the best on offer in Waikiki, while still not up the world class. The rooms are a good size, very clean and overall the hotel is visually appealing. The pool is tiny! For a hotel this size it came as quite a surprise,...

Firstly, remember this is not a place for the budget traveler. You're paying to have a smaller more classic Hawaiian stay. I stayed on a higher floor in the Mailani tower with an oceanview room. Very worth it. I wanted a quieter time and avoiding kids. I got it for the most part. The tower had light breakfast and snacks...

My husband and I enjoyed three nights at the Royal Hawaiian recently. We were greeted at arrival with the flower lei and the check-in service was super. The Mai Tai bar was fun. Beach was amazing. It was easy to grab a towel and find a spot on the sand. Beautiful gardens and lovely shops. I especially loved viewing all...

(my Dad had a suite, and the kids had a double queen - adjoining - but we could lock them out , yaaaay) Now this building is so beautiful, massively high ceilings, great place to stay. A Pearl...
