Waikiki Resort Hotel
- What's Included
We have stayed here before and it is a good hotel with comfortable beds, a small balcony and kitchenette. It is in a convenient location and quiet with the windows closed. The shower is over the bath but OK with good pressure and hot water. Towels were good and there is room in the bathroom for all your things. Could just see the Ocean and fireworks from the balcony. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
We have vacationed in Waikiki several times but this was our first stay at the Luana and we loved it! Our partial ocean view room was on the 14th floor and had a lovely view overlooking Fort DeRussy Beach Park, the ocean and a city view of Waikiki. We had a kitchenette, which was very convenient as there is no restaurant in the hotel. There is a grocery store nearby and an ABC store across the street, as well as many restaurants close by. It is a short walk to the beach and the hotel provided beach chairs, mats and towels. We did have a couple of rainy days and they seemed to have plenty umbrellas on hand. There is infused water in the lobby and near the pool /fitness centre and daily newspapers available. We also made use of the shuttle service, which went through Waikiki and to Ala Moana Mall. One of our favourite things was the wine and cheese nights. It was a great way to meet other guests and we appreciated the free wine, beer, snacks and entertainment. We also barbequed our dinner one night on the outdoor grill on the sundeck. It was fun and again a great way to meet some of the other guests. The pool is small, but had comfortable loungers and it wasn't overly crowded. They also offer yoga classes, free DVD's and have bicycles available, but we didn't make use of these. We knew about the elevators from reading previous reviews so we were prepared for that and most people made light of it. One of the quirky things in our room is that it only had sheers and not a full drape. It wasn't a problem for us, but it could be if you need total darkness to sleep. I only have one minor complaint and that is that I didn't think the housekeeping was as thorough as it could have been The bed was always made, but on some days the floor wasn't swept and not all the surfaces were wiped down. It was especially noticeable because we were cooking and eating some meals in our room. We did the best we could, but there was no broom or cleaning supplies provided. Since we booked through the hotel, and not as a vacation rental, we expected a bit more. The cleanliness of the common areas was very good. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We stayed for fourteen nights and enjoyed it very much! It's not a luxury hotel, but it was comfortable and friendly.
We had an ocean view room on the 15 floor. We had a clear view of the ocean and could see the waves, sailboats and surfers as we sipped mai tais on our balcony. It had a bedroom, living room, and full kitchen, yet was paid 1500 less than actually staying at one of the other hotels on the beach. That is great value and you pay half the resort fee because you are not on the beach. The full kitchen allows you to make meals and save on restaurant costs. We saw numerous families with young children. The only minor inconvenience was that one of the elevators was recently installed and required an inspection before it was put in service. The staff are super friendly (although everyone one is in Hawaii) and helped us many times. It has a great location, close to the beach. You just need to walk across the road to access any of the tours or trolleys available. This is important because there are so many one way streets that you have to walk a ways to get on a public vehicle from some hotels. They have a regular wine an cheese that was great. The pool is small, but the whole time we were there, it was only used by a few people as most were at the beach. Next time we go that is where we are staying guaranteed!
We had a short stay at the Luana Waikiki Hotel & Suites for a stop over on our way to Maui. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. When we checked in the person at the front desk recognized right away that we had been put in rooms with sofa beds and that we were all adults. She very gracious moved our rooms and ensured we had two queen beds. The hotel was very quite, never heard a voice in the hallway for the two nights we were there. It was in close walking distance to restaurants and shops along Waikiki Beach. Beds and pillows were comfortable.
Great motel...Clean, very friendly & reasonably priced. They had beer, wine & cheese nights, which was very nice. The motel is in a great location, in walking distances to everything, including Waikiki beach.
