"Staff couldn't be nicer"
We had a very enjoyable stay. The staff were very friendly, helpful, and responsive, starting from when we booked our reservation through when we checked out at the end of our stay. The breakfast attendants kept the breakfast bar well stocked every morning right up until breakfast time was over; the housekeeping staff did a great job of keeping our room clean; and the front desk staff responded quickly whenever we had issues. The only criticism we have would be that the lighting in the room was dim after the sun went down, making it hard to read at night.
"Convenient, but a bit tired - and definitely NOT a resort ($25/day fee for beach towels!)"
First the bads: (1) "Breakfast" is definitely not something to look forward to; just some fairly 'costco-type' rolls, fruit and coffee. (2) "Resort fee" for a property with no pool, or gym''' Deplorable way to hide true cost of property. (3) Room was fine - though dark even with lights on high, and limited availability of convenient plugs. Other than these issues, the location is convenient - just off the Waikiki main drag - so a little less chaotic, and the rooms are fine despite the low lighting (e.g., no light in closet where the safe is, so had to bring a flashlight in to open it...)
"Modern boutique hotel with great little extras"
This was my second visit to Hotel Renew (and my husband's third) and will no doubt be one we return to should we visit Honolulu again. The hotel is not far from the main beach strip, but on the edge of the Waikiki area - this worked well for us though as it was far enough away from the bulk of the larger hotels that we could avoid the main crowds. We opted for one of the 'Urban View' rooms on this occasion, so the views were nothing spectacular, but that was expected. The hotel and rooms were clean and modern, the reception had beach chairs, towels etc. for you to borrow at no extra charge, and there was a nice spread available for the included continental breakfast (you just have to pick your timing right as there are only a few tables available in the breakfast/bar area). But what made Hotel Renew particularly memorable was the friendly staff and those little additions that made us feel extra special, like a cold face towel and juice during check-in, our choice of scented diffuser for our room, fancy lighting that you could control from the bed, and a sweet handwritten welcome note and treat from the team. I'd definitely recommend Hotel Renew, particularly for couples looking for somewhere away from the rest of the Waikiki crowd and big hotels chains.
we stay here every time we go to Honolulu (2 times a year) it's close to the beach, shopping and restaraunts and ABC store. The staff is increadible. we love the breakfast bar. boiled eggs, pastries, fresh squeezed juice. free valet parking (you cannot park on the street)
"Nice Convenient place to stay"
Nice Petite location convenient to Wakiki beach! Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Rooms are up to date and comfortable! Reception area was small but welcoming. Small dinning area but with a friendly atmosphere.
