Waikiki Resort Hotel
- What's Included
We had a great time staying here. We could walk the Waikiki area as well as the Ala Moana area. The housekeeping staff was the best ever! We were on the 9th floor and had a great view as well as the best housekeeper! She did an excellent job and took pride in her work! The evening reception was an added plus. There was entertainment during the hour along with wine, beer, and snacks. We were able to catch the bus to travel to Diamond Head and Pearl Harbor. We had a kitchenette which came in handy. Just can't say enough positive remarks.
This was our third stay at this hotel, and we got the same room as on previous visits. It was a little disappointing to see a big change in staff, not many of the original staff there but those that were there were fantastic. Several of the original staff remembered us from our previous visits which was really good considering the number of people they must see. Arrived early morning so not able to check in straight away (check in is at 3pm which we knew), so stored our luggage and went for breakfast. Returned later and completed check in with no issues, new staff friendly and helpful. They still offer free tea, coffee and water in the lobby which is a great touch. The cheese and wine which is offered three times a week is a great way to meet other guests. The location of the hotel is ideal - turn right and luxury row, turn left and head to Ala Moana shopping center. Lots of bars / restaurants nearby and as it is at the start of Kalakaua Ave it is quieter in my opinion. Others have complained about noise, I would imagine it would be worse down in the middle of Kalakaua....we don't even notice the road noise.The elevators are still being upgraded and there was a slight delay sometimes, but nothing like the waits others have complained about....it really isn't a big issue.Mahalo to bell boys, Ryan and Jayce, and concierge Tyler - your friendliness and help was greatly appreciated. To the ladies on the front desk - keep up the good workI am sure there are better hotels in Waikiki but we will never find out as we will always stay at Luana due to the staff, I hope management appreciate how lucky they are to have these people.Some complain about the resort fee which is added to the room rate - this appears to be standard at nearly every hotel now and in a lot of instances it is a lot higher. Personally I would prefer it was just added onto the room rates rather than being a separate item, but hey it's the norm.We took Tim Tams from Australia which seemed to go down well with the staff (will bring more next time).Thank-you once again Luana for a wonderful 16 night stay. See you next year.
This is without a doubt the worst hotel in Hawaii. We stayed for 11 days and there was only one of 3 elevators working which meant waiting for 39 minutes for one to show up and then stopping at every floor. The front desk help were not interested in the guests in the least. There is an $18 a day resort fee and a $35 a day parking fee which we had to pay as there is no on street parking. The worth was the 3" cockroach that came out of the owners closet. I told the front desk about the cockroaches and their response was if I have too many they will change my room. The walk to the beach is about 20 minutes hauling all your beach chairs etc. if you are in Waikiki during one of their 92 parades plan ahead because the street will close down. There was a great view from the 15th floor of the fireworks though. The hotel sits on the main drag so it is loud with screaming people and loud screeching cars
A friend and I stayed here for 8 day/nights and we loved it! Grate location and friendly staff, I only gave them 4 stars as I would say it's ready for a revamp! But a part from that it was lovely! Defo recommend
We arrived at Launa Waikiki Hotel very early in the morning having only just arrived on a cruise ship. The staff were very friendly and helpful and despite it being only 10.00am they found an available room and checked us in quickly. We were due to fly out at 11.00pm that night with many hours of flying so we needed a base to sleep and rest before the long haul. We had a room on the 14th floor with views of the city. The room was fresh, clean and comfortable. The decor was pleasant. The free wifi a plus to catch up on family and friends was a bonus after 18 days on a ship with VERY expensive wifi. One highlight was a wine and cheese Happy hour in the mezanine which we enjoyed complete with Hawaiian music and dancing.
