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.

"Hospitality and stay was amazing"
The rooms were cleaned everyone was friendly, I'm thinking of coming back in few more months. The staff were extremely helpful and very accommodating to my needs! I was extremely impressed! They went above and beyond.
"Large property with lots of people."
We have been going to the HHV for nearly 30 years. They have built 3 additional towers in that time. ALL of these newer towers are time share towers that have some rentals available. We have an ownership in the Hilton Grand Vacations Club so we stay in a timeshare tower. The property is great for families. It has many pools and Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon is a treasure. Our 16 month old grandson loved the lagoon and the ocean and the pools. There are lots of restaurants and stores on the property. There are two ABC stores at the hotel. Everything they sell is expensive but... it's all about location: $4.69 for a quart of milk. I would recommend a small restaurant at the hotel that is hidden behind some other places in the "village" area. It is the Blue Water Shrimp restaurant. Their fish is excellent. We go back to the Hilton every year and so do thousands of other folks. If you want a "quiet" empty location, maybe this is not for you. Try the Aloha Friday show around the Giant Pool area. It is $30 per person and you get the same sort of entertainment as the Hilton Luau that is on top of the parking structure for $100 per person. The only difference is that you don't get a meal. However.. you DO get a free Mai Tai with your purchase. After the show is the famous fireworks show at the Hilton which happens every Tuesday and Friday night. Aloha. Have fun.
"Happily Ever After"
We have spent an amazing 10 day on our honeymoon in the HHV Rainbow Tower. Quality and value was above expectations. We were very satisfied with the kindness of the stuff. First of all upon arrival we asked if we could have a room on a higher floor because of the view, they were able to help and about half way during our stay we were moved to the requested higher floor. Also the cleaning stuff was very helpful and flexible which turned out to be a great help as we were coming and going all day. The hotel grounds were very beautiful and it was very convenient to be able to find anything we needed from shops to restaurants. Being on a quite high floor wasn't a problem in terms of eleveator wait times, everything was prompt, the longest wait time was less than a minute. Both our rooms were very clean and comfortable, the views on the 2 balconies were excellent. Cannot wait to go back, and we would definitely stay in the same hotel. We would definitely recommend it to anyone.
"Friday night fireworks, must see!"
If you are within walking distance of this venue you should visit. On a Friday night go early in the evening for the fireworks. They have Luau entertainment as well. It's a great setup and a fun evening
"Big with plenty to do."
We stayed in the Hilton Hawaiian Village, in the Diamond Head Tower. A great room with a huge bathroom, the reason why was we requested a walkin shower, I'm not a fan of showers over bathtubs, in fact I believe the should be banned. The resort is huge with plenty of shops and restaurants all within easy walking distance from each tower, five altogether, the resort is positioned on Waikiki beach. The staff friendly and courteous. The place is busy with plenty of guests about. I would suggest the Luau on the rooftop held each night, the costs include meal and Hula dancers with the highlight a Fire Dance, well worth it. Would I stay there again' Yes. Was there any issues' The only one, is that it takes about five minutes for the hot water to get to the shower head, which is a bit annoying. A great place to stay, check out their " Hall of Fame" Elvis used to stay here.
