2280 Kuhio Ave, Waikiki

This building started life as a hotel, then became a college dorm, then apartments and reopened as a hotel once again in mid-2015. Like many buildings in Waikiki with multiple lives, this one has some benefits and some detriments. One benefit is that all rooms above the basic hotel category have full kitchens. One detriment is that, in some ways, it still feels like a college dorm to us. The renovations are not on par as other properties in the area and don’t feel as modern to us. It feels more utilitarian. All rooms have a very small shower stall (except studios, which have a tub/shower combo). Only two rooms do not have lanais (we’re not sure why).

There is a nice little pool off the lobby. They have a manager’s pupu reception every Tuesday. Overall, not a place to get too excited about, but a good central location in Waikiki if you get a good discount. Hotel rooms (229 sq. ft) are $220, Hotel rooms w/kitchen (291 sq. ft) are $290, studios (400 sq. ft.) are $350, junior suites (488 sq. ft.) are $430, 1/1s (585 sq. ft.) are $490.

What Readers Have to Say

“My brother and I went to Maui… We had 3 copies: the iPhone version on iPad and iPhone, plus one on the kindle, which went with us in the car in a waterproof bag. What can I say? Without your guide, our holiday would not have been even half as good… After many lovely scenic stops… went straight to the falls at the Akelele bridge. This was the most magic moment of the whole week: just the two of us there, the wonderful 50-ft falls: idyllic and worth the cost of the guidebook alone. Your irreverence kept us amused, your knowledge kept us informed, and without your constant companionship, we would either never have had the confidence to do the things we did, or would simply have never known they were there to do in the first place. Thanks so much for making our trip.”
