Ohana Waikiki Malia
- What's Included
We stayed on the 10th floor in a very nice room. Quiet, clean, and comfortable. Waikiki beach and Kalakaua Avenue are just a short walk away. There is an IHOP at street level, which is convenient if you have to get a quick bite very early in the morning. They serve a plain breakfast for $12, but for a dollar more you can get something very special at the Hula Grill (above Duke's Restaurant) in the Outrigger Waikiki hotel on Kalakaua Avenue.The Ohana is on Kuhio Avenue and many buses stop right in front. The bus lines go practically everywhere on the island and with a little homework (and a Google phone app) you can get to places like Moana Falls, Diamond Head trailhead, Kailua, and Ala Moana shopping center for $2 each way (a ticket is good for unlimited transfers for two hours).
Good location that is walkable to the beach, on a bus route to go many places, restaurants close by, rooms were nice and clean.fridge in rooms.There was an indoor pool and a spa pool with jets that was very relaxing after a day in the sun.
After shopping around for a last minute room, we settled on the Malia as an alternative to the higher priced locations. The Malia is on the corner of Kuhio and Lewers, both very busy streets, at all hours of the day.The room was clean, very large, nicely decorated, with a separate desk and chair to the side. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was small but very clean and adequate.We were given a room on the Kuhio street side on the top (18th) floor. Having lived in Waikiki before, I had high hopes that this would be far enough away from the street noise to get away from the noise at night. Nope!Waikiki is a busy place at night, with lots of people in a party mood, until 4AM. The street traffic runs continually, complete with emergency vehicles, motorcycles and mopeds. Directly across Kuhio is another hotel, equally as tall, that acts as a sound reflector for the Kuhio street noise. All of the rooms facing Kuhio are going to be subject to the street noise.On my second visit to this hotel, I requested a room on the other side, figuring that being away from Kuhio would be much quieter. I was given a room on the 16th floor with a high room number, meaning is was the closest to the Lewers street end. Lewers isn't quiet at night either. At 4AM, people were yelling and screaming in the street.Admittedly, it was a weekend night, but still, I had high hopes of being able to sleep. It wasn't the traffic noise like the Kuhio side, but it was hard to get a night's rest. I wound up turning the AC temperature all the way down to try and block the noise.The hotel caters to a lot of international guests and the lobby staff seems to be very versed in handling Japanese customers. The lobby is small but adequate. Be careful stepping out the front door as the sidewalk has cars driving on it to unload guests. I went out the front door in a hurry only to be startled by a passing car.The hotel has a sports bar off the lobby and there's also an entrance into the IHOP restaurant, located in the same building. Very convenient. The hotel has parking, but you can often find metered street parking if you are patient. After 6PM the spaces are free, but you have feed the meter starting at 7AM, the next morning, unless it's Sunday.A lot of Waikiki hotels are now charging a 'resort' fee. It's a daily charge, added to your room bill. If the hotel was directly on the beach, or had other vacation amenities, a resort fee might be explainable. It seems like they're charging this because the other hotels are doing it. I don't see any 'extra' benefit to warrant the charge.The higher floor rooms, that are opposite from the Kuhio side, have a nice partial ocean view, overlooking the other businesses and buildings in the foreground. In my opinion, the better rooms are the ocean view, lower numbered rooms, closer to the elevator, rather than the Lewers street end. Definately not on the Kuhio street side.
Spacious room at a convenient location. I had a little table and chair in a seating area in addition to the desk. Nothing fancy but welcoming, clean rooms at an affordable price. I would not hesitate to stay here again. FYI on the bill, connection fee= resort fee=wifi fee
For business the hotel is fine. Rooms are basic but in no way bad. Clean and good size. Balconies are a bit small as well as bathroom, but again not bad. Many restaurants and lots of shopping walking distance. Not to far from Beach, about a 5 minute walk. Staff is VERY friendly. Reception are very nice and informative. For business, works fine.
