What a jewel. This little hotel is in a great location in Waikiki. Just a block away from the beach and all the comforts of home. The staff both front desk and valet were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were a little small but very comfortable. I had my little dog with me (yes pet friendly) and we left...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 January 2017

We are repeat visitors, first coming about 6 years ago. This year, we were in Waikiki for over three weeks and split our visit between 3 hotels, just to have slightly different experiences without much effort. At Hotel Renew we always get an ocean view room and enjoy the pretty, but compact space. This year we saw the New Years...

This was our first visit to Honolulu. We stayed at Hotel Renew for 3 nights and then moved to another hotel outside of Honolulu (which we could not book for our entire visit). It was nice to spend 4 days at Waikiki beach and Hotel Renew proved to be an excellent location. We did not pick up a rental vehicle...

Lovely boutique hotel with the friendliest staff who go out of their way to ensure your needs are met. The motel is small and surrounded by larger motels but our room captured a wonderful view of Waikiki beach. Location was great too, just a short walk to the beach and shops. Breakfast supplies is very basic, pastries, muffins, boiled eggs,...

I was impressed with the level of professionalism and great personalities of the staff. Before I even got to the counter I was greeted with smiles by the receptionist Rachel. The great customer service never stopped throughout my entire stay. Anything I needed, i was accommodated with pleasure. Thanks Rachel and everyone else for making my stay a great experience
