Aston Waikiki Beach Tower
- What's Included
High rise condo on Kalakaua Ave. Great access right across the street from the beach. Right in the middle of Waikiki with restaurants in every direction.Unit 1904 was clean but older. It provided everything we needed. The washing machine didn't work however. There was carpet throughout the unit ex kitchen and baths. If we lived there, we would have preferred tile because of the sand.Great balcony. Great view. Partially obstructed by the Round Hotel beside it, Floors above 20 have a better view.Valet parking was included with our rental. Never had a problem getting our car.k
I really shouldn't be writing about how good this place is because it'll become a "go to" place for people. But, I can't help but give them love. People should understand this is one of those condo-hotel conversions where people buy units and then are able to put them on the hotel circuit. So, the rooms are renovated to meet the standards of the hotel, but are ultimately maintained by the owner (this is how I understand it). We stayed in a 2-bedroom 2-bath on the 16th floor. Though it is a partial ocean view, we could see Waikiki beach, Kalakaua Ave. and an awesome VOG filtered sunset. Yes, we could also a few of the guests in the hotel directly in front of us and, from the bedroom windows, into the rooms of the hotel directly below us. But, we just kept the curtains drawn....The staff is AMAZING. Very kind, accommodating people who were happy to reverse park my van when I couldn't do it without having an anxiety attack. The pool is heated. Yes, I know the beach is right THERE, but after the beach it was nice to jump into the heated pool.There's a full kitchen for people who do not want to eat out during every meal. There are even BBQ grills by the pool area. They have the essential utensils and kitchen stuff. In the unit we stayed in they were missing spatulas and cookie sheets. All in all, I think I'll recommend this place to my friends and family who are looking for a staycation. For a 2/2 place, it's not cheap, but it's cheaper than the place with the lazy river down in the Ko Olina area.
We had a two bedroom, two bath apartment at the tower. Although the apartment is dated (80's?), we felt that the space, comfort, and nice views of Waikiki beach from the balcony were worth it, since we are a family of 5. We didn't use the kitchen but the apartment has one (with a refrigerator stocked with some water, coconut water, and mango sodas). The front desk staff was extremely polite and pleasant -- more so than usual. The tower is on the main street on the beach, with plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. Because it's dated, I would give it a 4.5.
First off, the good - the staff was ridiculously nice, and the Beach Tower is literally across the street from the Waikiki Beach. The views from the 14th floor are amazing, and the breaze was incredible.The bad: Old, small TVs (tubes still, not flat screens), bathrooms felt very 1980s, road in from the hotel was busy and loud (not their fault, but it bugged me).We got into the hotel finally at 4pm after a very long day of travel delays out of Dallas. Uggg. Honolulu traffic is no joke either. The front lobby is very bright and well appointed, and 3 ladies were on duty when we arrived. Super nice, super polite. They were aware that we were actually supposed to arrive the day before (canceled flight) and were apologetic we had so much difficulty getting to them. Check in process was very fast and we were given cool towels to refesh with.The room we got was a suite - 1 king, 2 twins, plus kitchen & living room with pull out sleeper couch. It was very nicely appointed with a lot of storage. Would be great for a family. Our hostess that checked us in actually escorted us all the way to the room and showed us a bunch of the features. Little touches like the fridge has some coconut water, reg. waters, and mango sodas.We opened the sliding doors and the breeze immediately hit us and was glorious! We left the doors open the entire time we were there except when sleeping because the noise from the road was too much for me, even 14 floors up.The view from our balcony was amazing - we ate and spent a lot of time out there planning for our next adventure. Towels are available at the desk to hed over to the beach with, and we took advantage and walked across the beach to spend some time in the water until a rain-shower drove us back inside.There are a ton of restaurants and stores within walking distance of the hotel. The best ones we found were a 20 minute walk away from the beach - Uncle Bo's Pupu was great!Overall, I would highly recommend. I think there were a couple things that could be improved, but they would not be deal breakers to us going back.
We stayed in unit 1804 which we booked through Captain Cook Resorts.The unit was very well equipped with lots of extras. Very easy to self cater and had lots of space. Beds were very comfortable and had a good sized balcony from which we could watch the sunset.It has a good locking system on the door which meant we didn't have to worry about keys.The pool isn't large but it is heated as is the spa. They are doing major works on the pool area and it will be great when it is finished.We used to the "sea pool" which was just across the road which was great.Would definitely stay here again.All the staff were very pleasant and helpful
