Reviewed 21 January 2015

The Royal is beautiful and is a living landmark of Waikiki. It's worth just walking through its lobby and soaking in the history. Right after the attack on Pearl Harbor soldiers could stay there for only 0.25 per night. The hotel is beautiful but it is old and some of the rooms are not as nice as others. While I...

I loved everything about this hotel. The renovations brought the property up to speed in the techno age, but the hotel remains true to its genuinely royal heritage. The grounds, the food, the beach, the Frette linens, the art, the fresh flowers, the quietness, the service, the location, the aura of glamorous history and the overall pinkness of this palace...

I should start by saying we stay at mass market hotels typically. Marriott, Hyatt, etc... and occasional Four Seasons. We don't mind the lower ends like Hampton Inn on occasion either. We go to Hawaii at least once a year. Usually for a week or two. I should add that I dislike Waikiki from every other time we have stayed...

Perfectly located right on the beach, beautiful surroundings. You can use the Sheraton pool next door too. Very slow check in service - also, late check in. Get up early for a sun lounger at the pool. They're all gone by 730 with people leaving a towel and often not showing up all day. Would definitely come back.

We were here a week between Christmas and New Years with 2 teen age kids. Location, Location, Location as they say. Hotel is located on the prettiest section of Waikiki Beach - and we walked the majority of it. Truly one of the most family friendly beaches we've been to. Waikiki is the Manhatten of Oahu - but whether it's...

This hotel is ultimate Hawaii. It is an oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Even if you can't afford to stay here it is worth a visit. Whilst the hotel is magnificent , there are some downsides. The rooms are below par to what you should expect. My pick are ocean facing rooms in the new tower (...
