Slightly Disappointed

We stayed in the Mailani Tower for the final few nights of a multi-island vacation. The hotel itself is beautiful and Waikiki Beach is fantastic but still I left feeling underwhelmed. The front desk staff is anything but friendly. It's as if they are doing you a favor by checking you in. And the bathroom on our arrival was not clean. Hair was all over the floor. This just made me feel like the cleanliness in the whole room was lacking. I don't expect this from a hotel of this caliber. The employees in the Mailani lounge were all very nice and the location is great, but I'm not sure if I would stay here again.

The Pink Lady Still Has It!

Despite a number of reviews on TripAdvisor warning of disappointing facilities, we decided to stay a night at this historic Waikiki hotel as part of our honeymoon--and we were not let down. The folks at the Royal Hawaiian were terrific and accommodating, and we truly appreciated the champagne brought to our room for the occasion. The room was nice, and the grounds were great. The pool is small, but there were plenty of lounge chairs and beach access just beyond the pool. There are many shops and restaurants surrounding the hotel, including a shave ice stand that my fiance hasn't stopped talking about since visiting. In all, this was a terrific stay.

The Pink Lady Still Reigns

Waikiki is a magical place and the Royal Hawaiian is part of the magic. It is lovingly maintained, the service is what you would expect from a luxury resort, and the beach is one of the best in the world. While only a short walk to busy Kalakaua Avenue, the hotel is quiet and beautiful.

Style and class in every way

My husband and I have just returned from our stay in The Royal Hawaiian. It couldn't have been better, checked in early, bell boy very informative and the room even though older style it was just beautiful and so quiet. I loved the expansive corridors and the amenities were fabulous. Can't wait for a return visit.

In every way...

We stayed here for our 20th Anniversary. The idea was something more understated, less crowded and more service oriented. Our way of avoiding a ‘chain’ hotel experience. We couldn’t be more pleased. Our booked room was ocean front and beautiful. They were renovating some nearby rooms and the noise turned out to be more of a bother than we imagined. A call to the Manager came with a quick offer to move us the following day. Not only were we upgraded, but upgraded to the top floor with an even better view. Kudos to management delighting us with an over the top solution. The beach is perfect, staff friendly and the ocean front lounge chairs are superb. Food service and quality was top notch. Do yourself a favor and consider a tower room that comes with great benefits including breakfast and happy hour snacks. Excellent all the way round.
