Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber Resort
- What's Included
I am writing a review about the excellent concierge service in this hotel. We met James at the concierge desk in this hotel on the first day we visited. We explained to him the things we wanted to do and see during our stay and he helped us set it all up with so much ease!! He was very polite and friendly. He even suggested some other things to do while keep in mind the things we wanted to do. He was so very helpful and I would recommend James to anyone! He is very funny too! The hotel itself is in a great location close to the beach and all the shopping. WIfi is part of the resort fee. Elevators are very slow and crowded so we decided to start taking the stairs. The front desk staff were friendly and accommodating.
The Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber is located on Kalakaua Avenue and is ideally situated 3 minutes away from the beach. Furthermore, there are numerous shops, restaurants, clubs, boutiques, and cafes within walking distance. The nightlife is vibrant right outside the hotel and there is always a lot of activity nearby. The rooms were clean and always made up well by the housekeeping staff; my travel party and I had no issues with cleanliness. The rooms were spacious. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and accommodated our requests to the best of their ability for late check-outs and room upgrades. The pool is clean and there are several chairs with umbrellas available for sun bathing and lounging. One member of the staff in particular made a lasting impression on me and my travel party. His name is James Speight, and he works as a member of the concierge staff. When my party and I first arrived, we sought the advice of concierge staff for activities to do, must-do or must-see aspects of our trip, etc. We found James, and he immediately came across as exceptionally welcoming and friendly. He was able to provide incredibly thoughtful and insightful advice for us, and recommended multiple activities for us to do. We took his advice on multiple occasions, and he consistently led us to fabulous experiences that we would have otherwise missed. In addition, James was able to augment activities we had already planned by recommending places to see nearby to where we were planning to be anyway. James also remembered my party and me by name whenever he was working at the concierge desk, and would make a point of saying hello and asking about how we found the activities he booked for us. James Speight easily doubled or tripled the entertainment and fulfillment value of our trip, and I highly recommend him to other travelers. I tried on multiple occasions to offer James a big tip for the fantastic service he provided us, but he insisted that he would not take any tips or gifts from customers. The Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber is very lucky to have such an exceptionally capable member of concierge staff.
After booking a last minute trip, the holiday inn was still a great price despite booking so close to our departure. I have to say I was so impressed compared to the 5 star hotels I have stayed at! The service was amazing, the rooms were clean, modern and spacious, we had a great view and afternoon drinks on our balcony were a delight. As we aren't fans of buffet breakfast, not having a breakkie included option was not an issue. The cafe and pub in the hotel were good options for a quick bite and we visited the pub on a few occasions in the evenings. The hotels proximity to so many restaurants as well as only being half a block from the beach was also great!Lastly, we loved the trolley! My only downside would be the unnecessary resort fee - its a hassle to pay extra at the end of the trip, just roll it into your room rate! Understand it's the done thing in Hawaii now but it is one thing that you have to be thinking of when you are spending during your holiday.
This hotel was close to everything from shopping, sightseeing, and restaurants . It was clean and the beds were firm. Parking is expensive so I would recommend the bus or tours. (Traffic is very heavy, also) We were on the 8th floor and if you looked out your balcony you could see the ocean in between buildings.
Our family travelled to Waikiki as a small group for our son and now daughter in law's marriage. Wonderful holiday. Holiday Inn excellent service, lovely clean rooms and great location. I would revisit this hotel if we are ever fortunate enough to visit Hawaii again.
