"So expensive for a bad hostel - ReAged hotel"
It is marked as a hotel but the experience is less fun, interesting, or clean than a hostel. for the price of an expensive hotel you get a 35usd parking fee (when you are able to park one block away for 1usd per hour, or park for free from 6pm to 7am on the street 100% safe) then; 1. elevators are old, slow and you feel like they will stop at any time. 2. you get to the hall and it is sooo strongly smelly (smells like old humid rotten wood) carpets are dirty. then you open the door to your room and the smell gets stronger, so they come with a scent that you have to choose at the lobby because the smell is so bad they tried to make it into something "cute" by having 4 scents to choose from at the lobby. 3. room carpet, and bathroom is old and dirty . 4. "breakfast is included" the worse pieces of bread I have ever tasted. There are two super cute surfer hostels on that same street, I regret not having gone for any of those and had a fun unique experience instead of paying 300 usd for a terrible one. My recomendation is simply change the name of the hotel from Renew" to ReAged Reold or Vintage"
"Great Place and Even Better Staff"
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Renew. When we checked in we were greeted by the staff and offered a welcoming glass of chilled juice. It hit the spot following our trip from the mainland. Our room was clean and inviting. The king size bed was comfortable. The location was 1 block from Waikiki Beach within easy walking of great restaurants and convenient to the sites we wanted to visit. The continental breakfast was healthy and a great way to start the day, What really impressed me was the customer centered care of the staff. Everyone was attentive, friendly, and seemed genuinely interested in our well being. When we checked out I left a camera battery and battery recharger in our room . When we got to our next destination and realized the problem, I contacted the staff, explained my situation , and asked them for their help in forwarding the items to me so I would be able to continue taking pictures on our vacation. The staff, especially Sierra went out of their way over the next couple of days to help me for no other reason than I was a guest who needed help after they had checked out. I wish these guys could bottle their customer service and sell it to other service providers...the world would be better for it. Great place run by even greater people, They saved our vacation.
A wonderful spot to stay close to the beach and all the action...just a little off the Main Street of Honolulu. Attentive staff await your arrival...we were later than expected and they were wonderful. There had mid sized clean rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast in the morning by the front desk and movies to borrow. We walked to Waikiki Beach and all the shops. We would happily stay there again.
We just returned from a two night stay and were most satisfied. The surprise was the incredible location. Only one block to the beach. There are loads of restaurants nearby and enough shopping to tire out the most energetic shopper. The beach is fabulous and just a few steps away. They have valet parking and the service is prompt. Remember, the hotels in this area are very $$$ and the Renew is quite reasonable by comparison. The staff is friendly and courteous. A simple breakfast is included, but the eating room does get overcrowded. Our room was most comfortable and very clean. This has to be the best value for the area. Highly recommend.
"A hidden gem in Waikiki"
This boutique hotel was an unexpected delight, and it's less than a block from the beach! It's a tiny, old hotel that's been renovated, and there are few (if any) common areas or amenities (fragrance diffusers to offset the heated window treatment smell not withstanding.) That said, however, the mini fridge, loaner umbrella and bathrobe in each room is a nice touch, and the complimentary toiletries were lovely. The continental breakfast laid out on the cocktail bar was appreciated, and the beds are comfy. But let me say: this is NOT my idea of a "spa hotel," and there is absolutely no reason the property should be charging its hefty "resort fee." The two small elevators feel old and rickety. (And if you want a view, specify "beach side" because it's not very scenic otherwise.) The staff is friendly, however, and we would definitely come back here again, given the location and the safe feel of the property.
