"It's has fallen over last several years."
This is not an luxury collection hotel. The rooms on the Malani tower are dated. Wind passes through with strong force and heard! What made the hotel was it's service and historic significance. Concierge and director of guest services personnel has changed annually. It doesn't seem as welcoming or friendly
"Best Hospitality in Waikiki"
I have visited/stayed at a few hotels in Waikiki for business, and this was by far my favorite. Azure (their restaurant) is spectacular - Micah is doing a great job running the place. His staff was welcoming and knowledgeable. I was greeted by the front desk by name (not sure how they knew), and ushered seamlessly to my room. Modern finishes for a historic hotel, magnificent view of the beach, and the hotel is set off the main street - meaning it's really quiet while also being right in the middle of things. I even met a few locals at the Mai Tai Bar, which says a lot for a hotel in Waikiki.
"Feels like Old Hawaii"
It was truly a lovely stay at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel! The iconic Pink hotel is very classy and felt like old Hawaii. The surroundings were lush and very serene and welcoming. We were greeted with delicious banana nut muffins. The doors to the rooms are craved. Large king size bed was very comfortable. I look forward to staying there again in the near future!
"My new favourite hotel in Waikiki."
I often go to Oahu for a few days on either side of a trip to one of the other islands. This usually involves a day or two in Waikiki. I have been trying out many of the hotels on the waterfront. Now I have a keeper. Here are the things I liked: a fresh flower lei placed around my neck on arrival, beach chairs available for guests, a bakery with the freshest treats, a spacious room in the original building with modern bathroom fixtures, and lots of shops near by. Oh and I shouldn't forget to mention my favourite colour is pink so if you're not a fan, beware. Didn't like that you had to call room service to get wine glasses and a wine opener (should be in the room) but the rest was amazing!
"Best hotel ever, a luxury beach cabana on the 12th floor"
From the moment we arrived until we left, everything about our stay was quiet, graceful, luxury, planned well, expertly functional. It was like being in a beach cabana 12 floors uo with the gentle sounds of the ocean, but without the noise of the people below. At any time, we could retreat into our air conditioned room for a nap, tp read, or watch TV or a movie. Wecould patake of the restaurants of 3 other nearby partner hotels, sign for the charges, and receive a 30 % discount off the food. It was the best vacation experience experience ever. We missed the well designed room as soon as we moved to another quite good hotel on the mainland after our stay. Nothing will compare to the Royal Hawaiian.
