The Surfjack is a great place to stay while in Honolulu. Of course our room was clean, well-maintained, and very comfortable. Of course, the same can be said about the cleanliness of the public areas and the comfort of the furniture around the pool and in the lobby. One would expect that from a hotel of this caliber. The hotel...

This small hotel focuses on the local: local artists decorated the newly designed space, local food is featured in the restaurant, and the renovated low-rise is an homage to old school Hawaii holidays. Everything is beautiful, comfortable, friendly and fun.

Recently had the pleasure of staying at the Surfjack and as a local resident I could not be more impressed and pleased with every aspect of the property from the spot on renovation to the management and staff. It's a 60's era structure and not much can be done with that right?! Wrong, the designer used it to her full...

We really enjoyed our stayed in the Surfjack Hotel at the end of June/early July. The property has a very cool retro vibe and is in a great location in Waikiki.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An authentic Waikiki experience awaits you at this vibrant new hotel located in the center of the action. With handcrafted design elements, surf-culture throwback & modern touches, you'll feel the energy of Waikiki at the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club. The Surfjack is home to stylish apparel shop, Olive & Oliver, and Mahina & Suns, renowned chef Ed Kenney's newest eatery. Guests also gather at the Swim Club - our outdoor pool and sun deck area where we share cultural programs and unique events as you sip on a cocktail (or two) and maybe jump into the pool because the moment was oh, so right. The Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club offers renovated bungalow style guest rooms, in addition to spacious one, two, and three-bedroom suites. Each charming guest room includes air-conditioning, a refrigerator and a private balcony. The feel of open space and the handcrafted style in decor creates a sense of curiosity and serves to inspire adventure. The Surfjack is situated in the heart of Waikiki and offers easy access to prime shopping, dining and nightlife, and is located just three easy blocks to Waikiki beach. From morning surf sessions to sunset catamaran cruising - it really is an endless summer. For the moments in-between sand & sun, take a short drive to the art and culture communities of Kaka'ako, Downtown Honolulu and Chinatown for a true urban-Honolulu experience. Join us and immerse yourself in the ebb and flow of the Surfjack, a swell little spot in Waikiki. ... more   less
