Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort
- What's Included
Once you get to know your way around this huge resort and after you've endured the long and busy check in lines, this is a wonderful place to have a holiday! There's several pool areas with bar service that comes to you in your sunbeams with a variety of cocktails on offer while you relax and the kids swim with all their new friends.There's a variety of eating areas - food on offer in general wasn't that amazingly delicious or cost friendly but theres a couple of stores (which are always packed) where you can buy food to store in the room's small fridge.The room itself was average, I personally found the beds not comfortable - too soft and my queen sized bed at home is bigger than their beds! But we didn't come to spend all our time in the room.Location wise - great! Right next to the beach and a short walk away from shops and eating areas.There are so many activities at the resort for the kids and adults and I would definitely stay there again.The Luau was fantastic and the food they served was delicious!!
We chose the HHV for our New Year's trip to Hawaii mainly because i'm a Diamond member with Hilton and we used points for the stay. We arrived late in the evening and were able to avoid the long check-in lines that we saw later during our stay. No upgrades available for Diamonds as they were completely full for New Year's Eve. Our room in the Tapa tower had a decent view for not being oceanfront. The view really worked to our advantage for the NYE fireworks the resort did over the lagoon, we could see them perfectly from our balcony.The room itself was just average, nothing really wrong with it but nothing outstanding either. We did notice some wear and tear in the hallways.We needed a car to explore but i wasn't about to pay the outrageous parking fees, so we did consecutive one day rentals from National's on-site desk. The manager there was very helpful and allowed us to keep the same car and did our paperwork in advance so all we had to do each morning was get a pass to exit the garage. He also shared a tip that there is limited free 3 hour parking on the other side of the lagoon so we were able to park and clean up before heading back out for dinner.The kids had fun in the pools, although the water was cold this time of year. They also loved being able to easily walk right to the beach. Even as big as this place is, the walk to the beach isn't bad. Can't beat the location. Diamonds don't get free breakfast at this property, instead they give 2 $10 food vouchers per day. So $100 credit for our 5 day stay. That didn't even cover the cost of one average breakfast at the Tropics restaurant for our family of four. We ate most of the rest of our meals off-site. Overall, i'm glad we stayed here once to experience it, but i'm not sure i'd want to stay here again.
It's a great place with wonderful rooms, comfortable beds and great staff. It is close to the beach, very close and has a lot of stores and activities right on the property. We were so excited about getting an ocean front room except the hotel is actually not facing the beach. Our room faced another hotel with a partial ocean view and the other window faced just hotels. I couldn't sleep the first night because I heard sirens all night, but decided to stay in the room and the rest of the stay was good except... There is a big time change. The fireworks show is on Friday which we couldn't see since our room did not face the oceanside where the lagoon was. We fell asleep early Sunday and thought the place was being bombed. People were running our on there balconies not knowing what was happening and since we couldn't see the ocean, we didn't know what was going on We saw flashing red lights and heard what sounded like bombs. I guess it was a firework show for a special event. I end up with heart palpitations, a warning would have been nice! Also, don't think because you paid for oceanfront, it actually is like the picture. The jacuzzis were so crowded over the limit and with under the age limit with children, we didn't get to go in sometimes. They have a lot of pools, but they serve more people than the pools can accommodate.
My family and I visited Honolulu, Hawai'i in December through the new year, and we had a magnificent time. God is good! We stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. Everything about the resort (except the resort fee) was great. The hotel front desk workers made check-in and check-out quick and easy. The other hotel employees, including the housekeepers were always professional and friendly. This is a great resort, and I will use this hotel again during my next visit to Hawaii.
I stayed here in the Kalia Tower for a recent business trip. The hotel is close to Waikiki restaurants and nightlife, which is a plus, but there are bound to be better hotels out there for business travelers, particularly if you have meetings throughout the island because the location can add 30 minutes to the commute during rush hour. The mandatory $47 resort fee is also an added expense business travelers won’t be able to use much. The water was shut off temporarily one night and my toilet ran, but the room overall was fine. Check in was also crowded but service was fine overall.
