Not recommended

Our travel agent recommended the Aqua Palms Wikiki. After staying there one night, I can’t understand why they made the recommendation but that’s a topic for a different forum. The two good things I could say about this hotel was that the staff was nice and the daily rate was lower than most Wikiki hotels. That said, the facility wasn’t nice which probably explains the reduced daily rate. The hotel’s parking lot was unbelievably tight, dark and creepy. Our room overlooked a main street and was unbelievably noisy and very cramped. A constant progression of noises from trucks, buses and nearby construction didn’t seem to be attenuated in the slightest way by the hotel’s windows. The room’s air conditioner fan kept turning on and off – when it was off, the room became very hot; when it was on, the fan was loud enough to rattle by my brains. The bathroom vent (which turned on whenever the bathroom light was on) had failing motor bearings which made a terrible screeching noise. The shower didn’t work well. Needless to say, we moved to a different hotel after one sleepless night. The staff did refund two nights of our prepaid stay without any argument which deserves to be acknowledged.

Carpets were filth,y

Overall an average place to stay. The carpets and floors were filthy. If you walked across the carpet your feet were Dirty! They were pretty good at housekeeping only late once in our 10 day stay and forgot to leave towels one time too. Very generous with soap, shampoo, etc. Pool is only 4 feet deep so not real swimming and the fitness room was disgusting. Very old equipment and afraid to touch ANYTHING!

Ideal location

We stayed on the 10th floor and had a peek a boo ocean view! Below us were all the Palm Trees from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The walk to the beach was perfect, as we meandered through the villiage. The hotel is old, however, the elevators run perfectly, the laundry facilities are great, wifi is fast and reliable, rooms are clean, however, there is a slight dampness, keep your balacony doors open as oft as possible. Shower water pressure is amazing for an older hotel. The cleaning staff are great! And having water and beach towels available are perfect. On the down side we did not know we needed a pass to board the Ala Moana shuttle, so a bit delayed. However, would stay here again. Might we also recommend Lapperts ice cream on a nightly basis, get a card and get your 11th free,

Great price for area

We were looking for a place to stay for one night before our friends flew home and we went to a rental on the other side of Oahu. For what it is, the Aqua Palms is a good place to stay. The price was reasonable, considering the area. However, we paid for parking and an odd $18 charge to each room for the courtesy of allowing us to check-into our prepaid rooms? We really didn't understand what that charge was. Parking garage is sketchy and not just for hotel guests. We were told by a very nice electrician, who was a local, to be aware of our surroundings while in Honolulu. All this aside, the bed was comfortable, there was coffee, tea and bathroom amenities. A large tv, microwave and fridge. Near a park, walking distance to Waikiki Beach and a view of Diamond Head from our window. Just the kind of hotel we normally look for, without the funny extra charges.
