"Glamorous and quaint"
What a gem! I stayed here with my best friend and we had a beautiful room on the 6th floor facing Diamond Head. The rooms are delicately appointed in soft colors and white wood. Everything in the room was always fresh and had such a calming effect. The grounds are kept immaculately and the staff is over the top attentive. The salt water pool is heated (a bit much for my liking) and the lounge chairs and pool staff were most accommodating. The concierge service is great- the ladies all worked together to figure out exactly what we needed and then offered assistance on top of that! Another nice touch is that employees are not expecting a tip every time you turn around. It seems they truly enjoy making your stay special! This is a classic! The absolute only thing that I didn't like was the dank, dingy hallways.
"A Special Place Like No Other"
We met some friends from California in Waikiki at the Halekulani. We had enjoyed the special warmth of the experience on three (3) previous stays. Our friends are now converts. There is something about staying at the Halekulani that gives you a place of refuge from all that high energy of Waikiki. We were accommodated in Diamond Head Ocean View rooms. As the name implies your view was generous and of Waikiki Beach and the afore mentioned iconic landmark. Simply beautiful. In the early morning light to watch the sun rise and the dawn patrol of surfers paddling out is a great welcome to a new day. The staff is warm, friendly and professional. They never fail to greet you with a warm Aloha. The pool experience is unparalleled with attendants supporting the experience through out the day. Water, periodic treats like yoghurt pops are provided. Poolside dining is delicious. The Halekulani is a personal favorite and in my mind the perfect complement to a Waikiki visit.
"Best afternoon tea"
I was in town for work and found this place to be a quiet, beautiful place for afternoon tea. The service was amazing & it was a great way to escape the crowds. It was an oasis in the tourist district that offered a beautiful breeze & fragment flowers in the adjacent garden.
"Very nice, very Hawaii"
Very nice room, great amenities, good bed, great housekeeping, good internet. Friendly service all round. Main restaurant was not overly exciting although location is great. It simply feels too much "hotel".
"THE BEST OF BEST"
Halekulani has not dropped a single notch, remaining way ahead for comfort, style and service. The best location just away from the main Waikikii beach with the best hotel pool and grounds. Not on the beach but the beach is a short walk away along the beach front - in either direction toward the main run of hotels along the beach or toward the Hilton Village. The best restaurants are in the hotel and across the road - Roy's & Ruth's Chris. Just up the street, Taormina and the Royal Hawaiian Centre with the other best of the best - restaurants and the world's best brands. Halekulani - as good to come to today as it was 20+ years ago - due to perfect management. You pay more, but the difference is incredible: style, service & comfort.
