Ideally located in the heart of Waikiki, this hotel is 10 minutes from Pearl Harbor and 25 minutes from Honolulu International Airport (HNL). Ala Moana, a largest shopping mall in Hawaii, is just a five-minute drive away giving you easy access to over 90 shops, services and entertainment.
Amazing resort. Plenty of pools & sun beds to choose. Kids had so much to do. Best juice bar located next to Taps pool Lanikai Juice Bar, which became our breakfast and afternoon snack hangout. Property full of beautiful shops, animals & the gardens & waterfalls are amazing. Starbucks located on site. Great fun watching movies on the greens. Pool food service was limited and expensive. Food within the resort was expensive. Food in Village was good. Wish they had coin operated laundry machines (Laundromat) on site. Laundromat was 10/15min walk. You drop off and collect. A 20 min walk to the main shopping strip & Cheese Cake Factory and amazing shopping. Great walk along beach front. This place was amazing. Miss it!!Comment of C. Pauline , Australia the 2016-09-05
We stayed here mostly for the location. Although you are a distance from down town Waikiki, you are right on the beach. A quick $2US into Waikiki on the trolley is easy. The hotel is huge. We stayed in the Kalia Tower which was nice. Pools were beautiful. The only downside to this hotel is the price for drinks & food. Very expensive for a family.Comment of J.

"Beautiful huge hotel, however it is a bit overcrowded and expensive"
We stayed in this hotel for 5 days in February. While the entire hotel is beautifully kept the property totally reminded me of Las Vegas. Very busy, people everywhere, extremely commercialized. Completely different from the laid back atmosphere that you would find in Maui. All in all we enjoyed the hotel, the one thing that was ridiculous is that you had to pay if you wanted to have a beach chair and an umbrella... All together it came to $50 USD! I had never been in a BEACH hotel where you had to pay for beach chairs... Went to the hotel's luau, while the show was good, the food was just blah. I wouldn't do it again. The hotel is very close to a lot of awesome restaurants and right across the street there is a little mall with a pizza place (for those late night munchies) and an amazing ice cream place. Room was comfortable and clean, it had a fridge which was great for leftovers, we also had a balcony, no complaints in regards to the room.
"WEDDING ANNIVERSARY TRIP"
Very impressed with the Hilton Village, we stayed at the Alli'i Tower, we were treated very well...there is plenty to do within the Village, but I do recommend that you rent a vehicle and travel outside the Village, lots to see outside as well. The food choices within the Village is wonderful, lots to choose from. I have only one issue, the internet/wifi was recently changed from one company to another and we had daily problems with that, with that said, that is a work in progress...otherwise we had no disappointments at all, staff from all areas of the resort went out of there way to make you feel at home and be stress free and they made it happen, thank you Hilton!!! This was our first trip to Hawaii and we will be back with the Hilton family.
We stayed for three nights with our teenage boys. At check-in, there were eight agents helping Hilton Honors members and only one helping everyone else, which started to annoy several people in line, but the Honors line soon cleared and those eight started helping the rest of us. Check-in staff was friendly. Mary Ann took one look at our teenage boys, noting we’d booked a room with two double beds and asked if we’d like to know our upgrade options. For $40 per night we upgraded to a room with three double beds and a pull-out couch. Best $120 I spent on the trip. Our room and bathroom were very generously sized. We stayed in the Tapas Tower and hadn’t booked an ocean view room so we were happy with our room at the end of the hall overlooking the city. The room was dated but it was clean. Our bathroom was also large and clean. We had plenty of hot water and the water pressure was good. Also, we found our part of the complex to be quiet at night. The resort is very large (we were told the recently opened a new tower increased the rooms to over 4,000) but we didn’t have a problem finding our way around. There are lots of shops and restaurants to navigate but it was nice to have choices. We found the staff at the pool we visited to be friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the Friday night fireworks. Starting about an hour before the 7:45 pm show, the pool and beach area fill up quickly, but we got there early and had fun chatting with others. The fireworks show only lasted about 3-5 minutes but it was fun to watch. At the base of our Tower by the elevators were DVD rental boxes and each room can rent one movie at a time. While we didn’t go to Hawaii to sit in the hotel room and watch movies, we enjoyed being able to rent movies. Because of the time change, we ate our dinners somewhat early and it was nice to be able to rent a movie and go back to our hotel room, where some of us fell asleep earlier than others. Location is close to lots of shopping and dining in Waikiki. We walked to both the Hard Rock Café and Dukes and they were nice, easy 15-20 minute walks. On the way back from Dukes, we walked along the beach and watched the sunset, which was beautiful. We purchased our room as part of a package through AAA (which books through Pleasant Holidays). Our information clearly stated that there would be a resort fee that was not included as part of our package and would be payable directly to the hotel so we were not surprised by this. It was $31.41 per night. At check-in, they gave us a list of things that the resort fee covered such as WiFi, towels at the pool, the DVD mentioned above, etc. Our WiFi, for the most part, worked fine. The grounds are very well maintained and there are several spots that are nice for taking pictures. For check out we had no surprises and it went smoothly. We reviewed the invoice under our door and dropped our keys in the remote checkout box. If we go back to Oahu, I would definitely stay here again.
"Crowded but still nice"
We stayed 3 nights at the Hilton during spring break. It was very crowded, but we still enjoyed the pools, water slide and beach. And in all fairness, hotels further down the beach looked just as crowded. This is a great hotel for families. It's walking distance to a lot of restaurants and activities, but far enough away where you feel a little more secluded.
"The best of Hawaii in one location"
Hilton Hawaiian Village is what you imagine Hawaii looking like if you have never been. This property is picturesque. Manicured gardens,🌺🌸memorizing tropical animal 🐠🐟🐥and an amazing selection of pools and beach for the children to enjoy. Starbucks is on the premises🤗🤗, as well as other eateries. I personally prefer the food in the Hilton Village. Food on the premises was quite costly. However, we took the beautiful 15 walk along the beach or through the gardens to The Cheesecake Factory a number of times😛 Our accommodation was in The Tampa building and that was quite good. Friendly staff and the customer service is exceptional. The Hilton Hawaiian Village for a family holiday is where you would want to stay. Loved it ❤️️
