Has amazing views of Diamond head and the Ocean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only a 2minute walk from the beach. A good choice of services provided by the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

The Queen Kapiolani isn't the newest Hotel in the district, but the friendly service and the great location more than make up for it. Right from the start, the staff proved friendly and efficient, offering hints on what to do whilst waiting for my scheduled check-in time having arrived an hour early. Wi-Fi access was provided straight away, allowing me...

We stayed for two nights our way from Australia to Vancouver. The hotel was centrally located, very clean, rooms had spectacular views across the zoo to Diamond Head and across the water. Everything we needed was close by. We would certainly recommend it to others.

I try and find positives and negatives of everywhere I stay, but this one definitely has more negatives. First of all, you are across the street from the zoo- so if you like birds and monkeys squawking all night- this place is for you! The beds weren't comfortable, and our air conditioner didn't work. The front desk also fails to...

Queen Kapiolani--our family's Honolulu hotel of choice. We enjoy the view facing the park and partial view of the ocean. Relax on the lanai and hear the zoo while you watch the sky and lively beach. The onsite pool is a great beach alternative.
