"Very Close to the Beach"
In its category of "boutique hotel" the Renew or Waikiki almost deserves a 5 stars rating. From the friendliness of the staff to the choice at breakfast one can hardly ask for a better place to be. The room was comfortable and clean with a very nice vew on the beach. Only things we could flaw are the lack of space to sit and eat in the morning and the slow elevators. At least one additional "bistro" table with 2 or 3 chairs could be set up outside next to the entrance door when the hotel is close to capacity.
We had a 4 night stay here which was pleasant enough, the room was large and clean however housekeeping turned up in the anoon after we got home after a day at the beach or shopping and all we wanted to do was to relax..Our original room overlooked the rooves nxt door we paid an extra $30 per night for an upgrade to an ocean view but you had to stand up to see the ocean as windows are at shoulder height..theres no balconies and no pool we just watched the guests in the hotel nxt door swimming in thier pool and sipping cocktails on thier balcony..Breakfast was pastries boiled eggs and cereal every morning. Although the staff were pleasant and the room was good we wouldnt stay there again as ocean views are not quite viewable and theres no balcony..
"Great location, beautiful ocean view."
I love how close Hotel Renew is to the beach and and everywhere I needed. Perfect spot for walking around, going to rent a scooter or surfboard, or laying in the sun and taking a swim/snorkel. Fresh pineapple juice and a cool lemongrass towel during check-in was a very nice perk after a long trip. The staff were all super friendly, like family, and the room was very nice and clean. Great view of the ocean at sunset.
"Amazing Boutique Hotel"
What a wonderful surprise on the edge of crazy Waikiki! Excellent and attentive staff, wonderful amenities, satisfying breakfast, very cosmopolitan! We will be back to experience this hidden treasure.
"Great Staycation Spot"
This was my first time staying Hotel Renew for a birthday staycation. They had a great rate for Hawaii residents and it was a perfect central location for all of my favorite restaurants and nightlife. We stopped by the bar before going out and Amanda made a great Mango Punch! Rachel and Kris were both extremely welcoming, and offered up suggestions for a few places to try that I had not heard of. Overall, it was a great experience and we will be back to stay very soon!
