Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort
- What's Included
Besides the check in process our stay was Fantastic! The front desk person that checked us in took too long and she wasn't very informative. I kept telling her I was tired and I just wanted to get in the room. She kept focusing on a room upgrade I booked an oceanview she told me I didn't, So I told her okay i'll just pay the upgrade fee the total cost for our double bed ocean view suite was almost 1,800 including the $70 upgrade fee per night for the ocean view, in the Tapa tower. We later had a phone call to our room. Minutes later a bellman in a blue hawaiian shirt banged on our door. I was so upset, because we had a Do not disturb sign. When I opened the door this huge security,bodybuilder looking bellman was screaming did you check in earlier? I ran to the door and shh'd him, and told him I had a two year old baby that was sleeping. Then he goes on I just wanted to know if you checked in earlier then he left. I was so upset I'm from California we have a 3 hour time difference he woke up my daughter and i didn't get much sleep after that. Because of our troubles the manager gave us 3 ice-cream passes. Besides that small hiccup the hotel has everything you can ask for. It's huge! If you have kids I would recommend saying here. My daughter and I spent most of our time at the pool with the water slide. I loved the parrots, the fish, and of course the food. Everything was within walking distance from the hotel. As far as the front desk if you're not looking for a room upgrade or a car rental they will just tell you to go to the concierge even if it's a simple question. I spent most of my time booking the trips with the people at the submarine stand or the concierge by the tapa tower. I would recommend booking the Luau show it's worth every penny. We booked the VIP the buffet was soo good I still am craving the pork. I also like the boat cruise it had an good food and an amazing sunset view. If you have small children I would also recommend booking the submarine it was pretty cool. I enjoyed the hotel speaks for itself they just need a more helpful front desk staff. Thank you Hilton the resort was lovely.
We stayed here for 9 nights in the beginning of April. We wanted an ocean view but didn't want to spend too much money. So we split our stay between the Kalia Tower (4 nights) and Rainbow Tower (5 nights). I'll start with the Kalia. The room had an ocean view which is a ways back from the ocean. You can see the ocean and lagoon but can't really "hear" the ocean. But still a nice view. You do get a bit of street noise if you have the lanai door open. The rooms are dated and seeing as how even this tower isn't cheap, I would expect better from Hilton. If I were reviewing the Kalia alone, I would give it a 3 at best. Convenient to have the Starbucks in lobby and parking is closest to Kalia. In the Rainbow Tower, we had an oceanfront room. The view is amazing and well worth the money. The rooms are more updated although not huge but did the job for us since we were out and about all day. The fireworks were a treat to see on our lanai. The resort is also quite nice. Plenty of restaurants on the property, 5-6 pools to choose from, right on the beach and the lagoon is a nice touch for safe water activities. It's also nice that you can rent dvds/games for free. My only complaint would be the added fees. We booked a package that covered our resort fee otherwise we may not have considered this property. $35 resort fee and a separate $35 fee for parking. If you want to rent water equipment or even an umbrella or beach chair for the beach, you must pay additional. The resort fee should cover things like that. Otherwise, we had an amazing time. There was enough to do that we didn't feel the need to leave the resort daily, we were close to shopping and restaurants and also not too bad for excursions.
We spent two night at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, one night pre-cruise and one night post-cruise. The first night we were in the Tapa Tower. Check-in was a nightmare - stood in line for at least 30 minutes. The rooms were sorely in need of an upgrade -- paint, furniture and bath showed a lot of wear. But we did get a nice ocean view. The second night we were upgraded to to the Ali'i Tower. Rooms were super nice with a nice balcony but no view.This place is really a village -- more than you can take in with two one-night stays. Our rooms were booked by a traveling companion through Costco, and we had no idea what we were getting. If I were staying longer, I would put more effort into getting a quality room with a view.
We spent New Year's season in Hawaii. There were 4 of us that spent the holidays together. We booked our vacation rather late so we were unable to secure a 2 bedroom suite. Therefore we stayed in 2 hotel rooms in the Tapa Tower. The rooms were very large - with one king bed. We had the view of the beach. The rooms were clean - but it did show its age.The service was terrific. I had a very bad cold and they were kind to leave an extra box of tissues by my bedside. Luckily there was a walk-in clinic on site (which I used). The resort offered anything and everything you needed - and probably did not need to leave the property at all.The village is walking distance from the shopping centre as well as the city strip. We walked everywhere. The pools were great. The pool with the childrens slide was always very busy - therefore it was nice to have the lagoon as an option. We rented body boards and umbrellas for the day. Be prepared to spend at least $40 for each of these.This is definitely a great location for families
To celebrate breast cancer survival, I took my wife to Hawaii and stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village after a cruise, and what a special place!! I am a HHonors member and they upgraded us to beautiful corner room in The Rainbow Tower with two balconies overlooking the lagoon and the pier. We enjoyed coffee and danish on the balcony each morning watching the sun come up. The village has everything you could want, including The Honolulu Cookie Company, fantastic sushi bar, shopping in boutiques, Maui Divers jewelry, Pearl Divers jewely, and the great ABC store which is the place to shop for reasonable prices... good shrimp salad too. However, if you are looking for quiet, go somewhere else. If you want superior service from smiling people, this is your place. We were a couple but there were MANY family groups all having fun in the many pools and lagoon. It was an easy walk to outside shopping and restaurants, but we mostly stayed within the village exploring and visiting the wonderful ice cream shoppe which also had very good danish.
