We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian May 15-18 after spending the previous week on Maui. What a difference between Maui and Oahu! The Royal Hawaiian is a beautiful building and has a great location. However, for the price paid, I would expect a little more as far as upkeep. We stayed in the historical building on the second floor with...

We got a great AAA breakfast package deal through SPG's own website (I usually compare AAA's website to a hotel's own AAA rates, which can sometimes be different), and I'm glad we did. Pink pancakes (among other entree options), in addition to freshly squeezed orange and guava juice, as well as a buffet, all included in that package. Just as...

The hotel was beautiful, staff were extremely friendly, concierge service out of this world! Attended the Luau, which was wonderful, and enjoyed a couple of the different restaurants in the Hotel. Hope we get back again!

We booked a Tower room in the 'new' building without having prior been to this property and were disappointed. As a middle aged couple celebrating our Anniversary we GREATLY prefered the elegance, quiet and history of the guest rooms in the original Hotel building. (We didn't miss the balcony as the elegance of the furnishings made up for the lack...

Beautiful building, fabulous interior and great sized room. Best hotel I have ever stayed in and regret it was for such a short time. Amazing service, staff so friendly and the grounds were beautiful complete with private beach.

Wonderful old icon of a hotel with modern amenities and good old fashioned service. The tower is the new part of the hotel with large rooms, balconies and a great view of Waikiki beach, the historical rooms in the main building are also great and although I love history I preferred the rooms in the tower with a better view....

We were very happy with the property, our room, the view and service. The good was very good and most of the servers were great. We were here for 10 days, so had contact with a lot of people. The good news about the pool area was that there was lots of shade. The bad news is that it was...

From start to finish, this was an excellent 4 night experience for a group of 3 adults and two kids. I worked with Scott Kawasaki and Krystal Bourget who were phenomenal at helping me find the best accommodation possible for my family. They confirmed an Ocean View Garden Suite, extra beds and crib. I was impressed with how quickly we...

OK...I must confess I have stayed at The Royal a few time...but each time reminds me of why I keep coming back. I am always the one to look for new adventures, the newest, latest and greatest...but the Royal is - hands down - the best experience that Waikiki has to offer. It sits in the middle of one of...
