“Perfection”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

This Hotel embodies perfection. My wife and I spent 10 days here and were beyond thrilled with the hotel. Some reviewers have said the hotel is 2 blocks to the beach and in reality its more like 1 block, which rocked! We had an ocean view room that was simply breathtaking. I woke up early in the mornings sat on the balcony and watched the sun come up over diamond head with the beach in front. Simply stunning! The rooms themselves are immaculate, very clean, with lamps by the beds that dim (a personal favorite of mine) Seems like a simple thing but it seems a lot of hotels do not have this, it's nice to set a mood :). The bathrooms are elegant, and modern, and the beds are super comfy. The views at night had a very serene feel to them as well. From the balcony we also got a beautiful view of the city which is fairly quiet, and just glows with beauty, and sounds of the ocean waves complete it. Had we not had an ocean view room I could see myself being just as delighted with their city views. Oh and we slept with the slider door open most nights, amazing waking up to the sunrise and ocean waves.

The hotel staff are amazing. I would say out of all the hotels I've stayed in their staff was the friendliest, and the most helpful. They really go the extra mile to make sure you are happy and if there is anything you need they bend over backwards to make it happen. The bartenders make exceptional cocktails, and have great personalities, even the cleaning staff couldn't be sweeter. We ordered room service from their restaurant, MAC 24/7, and the food was EXCEPTIONAL, as well as the staff member who brought it. He even gave me some snorkeling tips for Hanauma bay.

The hotel is in an outstanding location close to everything you could need on your trip. We rented a Jeep for 3 days, and the concierge was very helpful with that, and the valet guys were on point when it came to parking, The pool deck and bar is beautiful, and a fun place for a night swim with the city lights glowing, and stars are shining. The grounds of the hotel are well kept and the tiki torches add a beautiful glow to it, very well done. They even have a room dedicated to some history on Prince Kuhio.

You simply can't go wrong here. I'm planning on returning to Hawaii shortly in the future and I can say without any doubts me and my wife will be staying here ANYTIME we visit. AWESOME experience!

Room Tip: The south side (ocean views) is amazing, the north side faces huge majestic mountains probably stunn...

Thank you very much for topping off your perfect stay with a perfect review. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate a 5 star review, it makes us feel that we have accomplished what we strive to do. It seems to me that not only did you get to enjoy yourselves but you also got to enjoy everything that the hotel has to offer, including MAC 24/7 (a local favorite). I am glad that so many things made your stay memorable, from the views and location all the way down to the lamps on the side of the bed. I am a strong believer that the little things in life are what really count. Hope you had safe travels home, we will be looking forward to your next visit.

Aloha and Mahalo!

First time to Oahu, and this hotel was a good choice for us.

Location: This Hilton is located on the east end of Waikiki. It's not in the 'center', but Waikiki Beach is not a long stretch so you can walk from one end to the other in about 20-25 min. International Market Place is a 15 min walk away, and the Zoo and Aquarium are 5-10 min walking distance. Because it is on the quieter end, you won't have to deal with the hustle and bustle of Waikiki as much, which, for us, was nice. Do note that this hotel is NOT on the beach. BUT, it's only a short block away, so if you don't need to be on the beach, this is a very good option.

Service: This is a no-frills Hilton hotel. Service is not excellent, but acceptable. Concierge could have been more friendly/helpful, but should not impact your stay.

Convenience: Bus stop is just a few steps away from hotel entrance and an ABC store (convenience store) is right across the street.

Overall: We would stay here again!

Short one day stay...welcome and staff helpfulness excellent. Received an upgrade to an ocean view - great view if you look straight out to the water a couple blocks away. good fitness center. Initially hard to find parking entrance - keep a close look ot for the blue Hilton sign at street level.

My fiance and I spent 10 days in Waikiki at this hotel and it was amazing. We had a beautiful view from our lanai of the ocean directly in front of us, Diamondhead on our left and a great view of Waikiki and Honolulu on the right. The hotel was in a great location, close to everything we wanted to do, and had great amenities on site as well. Their restaurant, Mac 24-7, had great options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and true to their name are open 24 hours a day, every day, which was great for us when we would get in late and hungry from a day out, or when we were heading out early we could stop at their to-go counter which had awesome smoothies! We also ordered room service a couple times and the servers were so nice and the food was excellent. The hotel is just a couple blocks from the beach as well as great shopping, and their concierge was so nice and knowledgeable about other fun things for us to do while we were on O'ahu. Overall what made this hotel stand out for me was the service. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful and made our stay so relaxing and enjoyable, it was exactly the vacation we were looking for. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to friends and family and we will definitely be staying here again. Mahalo!

I am glad that you mentioned what a perfect location we are for shopping, the restaurants, and of course the beach, everything within easy and quick walking distance. And what makes this review even more appreciated, is that the sole service of all the staff is what made our hotel stand out to you. Hope you had safe travels home, see you next time!

The hotel is about 2 blocks from Waikiki beach with easy access to restaurants and area attractions. The front desk, lounge, and bell staff members were all very pleasant and professional and made what was otherwise an ordinary Waikiki hotel stand-out. Our room had been recently updated with new bathroom fixtures and unique windows on either side of the sink allowing an obscured view into the room (with blinds for privacy). The base of the shower is raised about a foot from the bathroom floor, which makes for a cramped fit if you're 6' or taller.

The concierge lounge is in the lower level and offers hot appetizers and continental breakfast daily.
