I got lucky staying here. I was on a conference and most colleagues were at Hilton Hawaiian Village...a dreadfully over crowded, over commercialized, frenetic place that I'd run away from. This has old world class you'll not regret.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

This was our 3rd stay at the Royal Hawaiian. It is iconic and really classy in an old-world style. When you pull off the Main Street and pass the Sheraton you come to this quiet tucked-away pink hotel that reminds you of a Humphrey Bogart movie. Maybe that is why so many people take wedding photos here (multiple brides every...

We had such a wonderful time! Sam, who works in the coffee/bakery, made our trip extra special. We were celebrating my mother's birthday and he was so sweet to her. Due to his level of care, as well as all the rest of the staff, we will definitely be back!

With it being our first time in Hawaii and travelling from Toronto, I researched many resorts and hotels in Waikiki prior to our visit. We agreed on the Royal Hawaiian Hotel (as we are SPG members), and could not have been more pleased with our choice! From our arrival, to our final goodbyes - the staff and managers could not...

I loved staying at the Royal Hawaiian. I was attending a conference at the convention center, and it's about 20 minutes walk from there. I would recommend checking out the breakfast buffet at Surf Lanai and the pastries at the bakery on the ground floor. The staff were always friendly and helpful.

The Royal Hawaiian is truly a luxury resort with old world luxury and charm. We spent the last part of our honeymoon here and it was the perfect ending to a perfect honeymoon. We were upgraded to a Tower suite which was an absolutely gorgeous suite with living room/half bath on first floor and loft bedroom/master bath upstairs. It also...

We just returned from a stay at The Royal Hawaiian in Waikiki. The service and staff were top notch and very friendly. We were in the historic section of the hotel with 2 garden view rooms which I used Starwood Rewards points to get. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable but too small for us. They were not...

I just visited the Royal Hawaiian for the eighth time. What a magnificent property in Waikiki! It is an oasis of calm. The views of Waikiki Beach are loveliest in the early morning when having breakfast at the Surf Lanai. Service is warm throughout the hotel. I especially appreciate the kindness of the evening Housekeeping staff and the hostesses at...

We spent two nights at the Royal Hawaiian. And we had a great time there! The staff are really nice and everything there are just great! We stayed at the 14th floor of the Mailani Tower. The Oceanview is awesome! However, the breakfast is just average, not much choice of food. They only provide fruits and baked delights for breakfast....
