Just steps from Waikiki Beach, Hotel Renew offers a unique experience to tropical travelers. Unlike most Hawaiian resorts, this hotel departs from tiki torches and traditional island decor, and instead presents a combination of sophistication and technology. The hotel’s 72 rooms offer all things luxurious, yet cozy, including high-thread count linens and large flat-screen TVs. Rooms range from a City View One Double, a room with views of Waikiki and the Ko’olau Mountains, to a Premier Ocean View room, which offers one king platform bed or two double platform beds.
Children 18 and under stay free with parents, and dogs up to 20 pounds are welcome to visit, too. Complimentary continental breakfast is served daily.

Truly enjoyed our Wedding Anniversary / F.O.B Convention/ Halloween visit @ the RENEW. Right at check in Eli took care of any misgivings I may have had, the entire staff made this a memorable stay. Kim with a relaxing facial and wellness tips for my Wife and I (comp), to Grace with my 6am beach chair and coffee.
Icing on the cake.... location, 1/2 block to beach, 1 block to zoo, 5 min stroll to aquarium. Literally surrounded by excellent eating places...from Wolfgang Puck to MAC 24/7 (SO ONO) to the Stromboli Truck out back.
This disabled Veteran would love to have seen some safety rails in shower and gripping strips in tub.
MAHALO, hotel RENEW, until my next visit to Honolulu. ???????? ???????? ????????

Hotel Renew hooked me with their website. It is literally half a block from Waikiki Beach, and just a block from the Honolulu Zoo. It's a great location. And the style vibe they are going for its also very good. But we had the misfortune of checking in for two weeks right when they had finished (or nearly finished) their makeover of the place. The result was that there were lots of things unfinished or poorly finished that made it much less luxurious than the site promised. I suspect that it is a bit better now, and that with good management, it could be great. I'd stay tuned for more reviews!
