Pacific Beach Hotel
- What's Included
Great hotel, remodelling at the moment, but stunning, right near waikiki beach, shops, buses, only draw back there breakfast buffet is SO expensive. And they do not have an evening meal, but the hotel itself is fabulous..
I came here for only a few days on the way to a work conference, and I was adamant on having a full beachfront view of Waikiki beach and with a balcony. Pacific Beach Hotel was the best value hotel for this, and the view did not disappoint, it was perfect and went all the way down to the Outrigger and Dukes etc. The room was also freshly renovated, with a brand new bathroom and bed. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean, all in all an excellent stay. Plus they provide beach towels, which may not be a big thing but was very handy.
From the moment I walked into the hotel to the moment I had to depart for the airport, I felt like I was in heaven. The hotel was a wonderful place to stay and every detail is covered and considered which gave me a unparalleled experience on my stay in Waikiki. The interior design of the hotel enchanted me with its inviting, clean and fresh design and feel. I was greeted by pleasant front desk clerks whose disposition alone made my night. Every morning I ate breakfast down at Lychee where I was given an array of delicious foods which included traditional eggs and sausage and other refined delight such as braised beef loco moco and kimchee fried rice or nutella peanut butter stuffed French toast. The omelet bar was fantastic and my whole experience was elevated by the fresh papaya parfait and assortment of fresh pineapple and other fruits. The pog juice was my favorite drink but I also had delicious Japanese green tea and earl grey black tea. My daughter and I walked out happy and satisfied every time we dined there. The staff at Lychee were so kind and made sure that I had the best time possible. I was even allowed to take my breakfast on the day I set out on an early tour to Pearl Harbor. I wanted to hike diamond head and the concierge helped me with finding a city bus to take up there which was extremely affordable. The staff which cleaned my room did such an excellent job and even cleared the sand out of the shower which my daughter had accidently forgotten to wash away herself after the beach. I even received a complimentary Mai Tai upon my arrival. The list of superb experiences and special gifts I received from the hotel during my stay goes on and on. I just cannot say enough positive comments about this hotel. I didn't even mention how awesome it is that the hotel is located right across from the beach. I had stayed once before the renovation, and it was nice before, now it has been elevated to the next level of bliss. You get even more than what you see. On my departure, I was able to leave my belongings with the bell staff as I had a late flight, when I went to pick up my belongings I was waiting for a bellman, the one who came out blew me away because he was all packed up and leaving for the day from his shift, but he cordially asked me for my ticket and went and got my things and even brought them out to the front of the hotel for me as if he had another 8 hours of work left to go. That simple fact shows how dedicated everyone is at this hotel to true guest hospitality. Overall, my whole trip was a dream and it was completely made possible by the Pacific Beach Hotel. Thank you for taking me away on a vacation that I will never forget and always reflect on as the best time of my life.
The hotel is situated in a very convenient location. It is very close to the beach, various shops, and restaurants. The hotel was recently renovated and the room was exceptional and at a good price. When we arrived, the check-in staff was very helpful and friendly, providing advice and tips for what we could do during our stay in the area, and recommended a few local restaurants nearby where could visit. Since we arrived in Oahu rather early, we were surprised that our room was ready, and we are allowed for an early check in (very much appreciated especially after a long flight!). We had a corner room oh higher floor with amazing view of the beach, sea and sunset, and the balcony was perfect for a lazy outdoor dinner. The only downside was that the hotel pool was not available for use at the time due to upgrading works, but we were offered the pool facilities at a nearby hotel instead. However, with the beach less than a minute walk away this was not an issue for us. We were also given a goodie bag with sunscreen, cookie vouchers etc which was a nice touch. We look forward to visit again with the renovation completed by the end of 2017.
I was happy with the hotel in general but a couple of things weren't good. Firstly they told me there would be a $30 a night resort tax. I suggested that I wasn't happy because we weren't getting what we paid for as the pool, tennis court, gym etc were being renovated and we would have to go to another hotel. We already paid $300+ a night. So they said they would waive that fee. However when I looked at my booking sheet it says the fee would be $20 a night, not $30. Why the discrepancy?Then we had two men barge into our room at 5.30 am. We found out they were air conditioning repair people who went to the wrong room. The manager offered us a free breakfast to compensate, which by the way was the absurd price of $37 USD. We didn't have time as we had to catch a shuttle so declined. That was it apart from an apology. Not a good relaxing start of the day while on holiday. The hotel has been refurbished and it is lovely but so it should be at the price we paid. We didn't have a good ocean view, just a side view. Quite honestly I was disappointed. I expected more for the price.
