This was our first time staying here and we will definitely be back on our next visit to Oahu. The hotel is a very short walk from the busy parts of Waikiki, but down here it’s quiet and peaceful. Fantastic views of Diamond Head and the ocean, with a nice swimming beach just next to it. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff truly made us feel welcome. Beach towels, mats, chairs, valet parking, towels and more are all included in the very affordable amenity fee. If you want to choose in and out of the busy action of Waikiki during your vacation or business trip, this is the best place!
The hotel was clean, just not as nice as what the pictures show online. Employees were very friendly and very helpful. There weren't really any amenities except for a restuarant and bar that was open only in the evening.
The view from the balcony was spactacular!!!
