A super classic hotel right on the beach in Waikiki Super two hour free drinks and nibbles great rooms great breakfast close to all major shops The beach is kid friendly however the pool is very small Very hard to criticise other than the pool however would definitely stay there again
"Beginning to Show It's Age"
I've visited the Royal Hawaiian periodically since the 1950's and this visit made me feel that the Hotel is beginning to show it's age. The Mai Tai bar beach side is still a wonderful location but the umbrellas are badly worn despite attempts at patching (see photo). A walk through the lobby shows furniture pieces extensively worn. Time for a renovation at least for the decor. So disappointed that this beautiful facility is now surrounded by high-rise hotels and shopping. It has lost much of it's appeal.
"Walked through and wow"
We have to stay here sometime. We walked through looking for the entertainment and it looked very impressive. Right on the beach and close to the shops and restaurants in Waikiki. The pink color really is pretty!
"A Hotel with History"
In a maze of Waikiki mega hotels and high rises the Royal Hawaiian is managing to keep a bit of aloha spirit still going. We enjoyed it for the tradition, history, quaint and unique architecture and beautiful grounds, friendly atmosphere. However, all this gets a little overshadowed sometimes by a feeling of urgency, edginess and disquiet that is in the air of this "wash and wear" fast paced town. Three days were definitely enough to soak up the vibrant energy of Waikiki and then it was time to really get some R & R on Kauai, lush and green, wild and beautiful, unpretentious and casual.
"Loved The Pink Palace"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this iconic location. Luxury and history at every turn and service beyond reproach. Our room was comfortable although I wish I had a better view. In a hotel of this standard, I felt the in room tea and coffee facilities should be better. But this is a small concern when considering this gem.
