Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort
- What's Included
Stayed here while I was attending conference in the hotel, and at first was incredulous at the number of guests at the main check-in location. I realized later that we could have checked in at the Kalia Tower, where we were staying, but oh, well...This hotel facility is excellent, however, with extremely helpful and friendly staff, making our stay extremely pleasant. The amenities at the hotel and the surrounding Waikiki Village (various pools, gym, spa, stores, restaurants, beach etc.) are excellent, and the history of the somewhat cheesy theme park-style layout explains a lot about the seemingly faux-Hawaiian atmosphere: This place has witnessed a LOT of popular music culture from the traditional Hawaiian (Alfred Apaka) to the birth of the Tiki/ Exotica style (Martin Denny, Arthur Lymon), and, of course, Elvis' frequent sojourns while filming Blue Hawaii and other concert events. Bottom line: Go outside the Village to experience truer Hawaiian culture remaining on Oahu (or better yet, visit other islands), but as a quasi-resort experience in Honolulu, this is hard to beat, and the history is there if you seek it...
Make sure you know which tower you want out of 4. They all have there advantages and disadvantages. Do you want sun, ocean view, peace and quiet etch. etc. , We were in the Rainbow tower for only 3 days. In room 507. I have never been one for ocean views, but with the big lanai it was fabulous. The room its self was nothing special for the price, but the view and the sun all day except the sunset, was great. Also the property with its 22 acres, and all its amenities you never really never need to leave. Great place for families, but a little pricy for a family budget I think.
I throughly enjoyed my stay here. We stayed in the Tapa building, no complaints here. The resort is lovely and I would happily stay here again. I found most staff to be approachable. My only drawback would be upon our arrival. We arrived at 7am due to the early flights from Australia. While I fully admit fault that I should have booked the night prior, we arrived and enquires if it would be possible to get a room early - happy to pay extra. We were advised that they were very busy and at that time there was no free rooms, however it looked as if a room could be ready within an hour and a half. They would call us as soon as it was ready. We went off for some breakfast, came back to check as we had not heard anything, and was advised it would still be a while longer. After another hour and a half, we tried again. By this point we had been waiting 3 hours. I again was told it would be a while longer and we could go and wait one of the rooms with couches. Having fallen asleep on the coach for 2.5 hours, I AGAIN went to the reception and by this point was actually very frustrated. While I understand my mistake, if I had been told at 7am that we would not be able to check in until the actual check in time we would have gone out to one of the hotels out of the resort and booked a room for a few hours ( as we were feeling very unwell) - instead we kept being told it wouldn't be long. By this point the gentleman at the reception realised I was beyond frustrated, and arranged a room for us, although made comment that it had been ready for a while and we hadn't been called. It was just a frustrating experience on our first day. However, all other experiences were great! We were even privileged enough to catch Hawaii 5-0 being filmed - the reason we chose to stay here in the first place!
Enjoyed our stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Stunning view from our room. Right on a beautiful part of the beach. I paid for a higher room category, I probably wouldn't next time. Friends were in a lot cheaper room and it was still great. A more distant view but still lovely.All in all I would recommend this hotel.
We live in Hawaii however our daughter and her 2 kids came to visit and we wanted to put them up at a resort that offered the beach out their doorstep along with the option of pool access in Waikiki where we live. The Hilton Hawaiian Village offered everything they needed. They were in the Diamond Head tower that offered them a 2 room ocean view suite. We rented them a vehicle and our package offered free parking. (There was a daily rate of $32 self park or Valet at $39.)The property has 3 pools. Each person in the room was given a pool card to present at the pool for towels. You had to return your towel at the pool you received the towel from so there was no taking the towels back to the room to bring back the next day to exchange for clean dry towels unless you planned on going back to the same pool. different pools different towel colors. The pool with the slides was on the other side of the property (a bit of a walk with little ones) so a little bit of planning when going there. Its January so the pools were never crowded and we always found loungers and space for a stroller. Unfortunately none of the pools had umbrellas unless you rented a cabana.($75 half day and $160 full day) With this in mind we also had to plan our pool time for later in the day to minimize sun time for the little ones.Beach access was great not crowded and plenty space to play and spread out. Restaurants on the property offered many options. No real room service. This was not something we expected. Juggling nap times and feeding times, nursing a newborn, it would have been something we would have taken advantage of. They offered something called the "Fresh Connection" you called in your order then went down stairs to pick up at one of their 2 locations on the property. 2 ABC stores on the property that offered everything from sunblock to fresh fruit cups. Always a good spot for a late night snack if not one of the two ice cream shops. Starbucks is tucked away in a corner between two of the towers. Every morning as expected the line was out the door. Also there is a play ground just behind the Diamond Head tower. Kids played there daily. As I said this was a perfect location for the kids offering pools, beach access and a kids camp for kids under 5. Looked fun with outlined daily activities. We definitely recommend the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
