A skip and a hop from Waikiki Beach, Ohana is just across the street from the International Market Place. The hotel offers more than 500 guest rooms that accommodate up to six people. Standard rooms have air conditioning, balconies with black-out drapes and cribs on request. Family Kitchenette Combo rooms connect to standard guest rooms to provide more privacy and space for families. A grocery is directly across the street, making it easy to stock your kitchenette. The family-friendly Chili’s Restaurant and Starbucks are located at the hotel. A unique feature of Ohana is a full-service pharmacy, which comes in handy if someone in the family gets sick. At this resort, kids will love the huge sundeck, complete with an outdoor swimming pool and poolside cabanas with food service. Outdoor-loving families should check out the area’s Hanauma Bay or Diamond Head.

Stayed with my friends during this vacation week. Tried to power nap on the couches during the check-in process but service was so fast I couldn't. Our room was located on the 9th floor close by to the elevators with a decent balcony view. Rooms were clean and spacious with very good lighting for bathroom selfies. I only wished the fitness center was a little bigger or had more equipment, but I made it work with the free weights. Shout out to the valet team for pulling up the cars quick, we were running late to see the Backstreet Boy Concert but still made it in time!
Hotel location is very convenient, we were pretty much located in the heart of all the eating and shopping festivities!

Service was outstanding, with a smile. Rooms are okay, a little on small side, but shower is nice and balcony view is amazing. You shouldn’t be in your room in Hawaii anyway. Only a block from the beach. Only downside if you drive a rental, there’s no self parking only valet for $45 a day. You might be better off Uber or Lyft. There’s a ton in walking distance to hotel
