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

“I just wanted to thank you so much for writing the terrific reveal travel guides. My husband and I just returned from a 2-week vacation to Hawaii. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. We used your guides on all four of the islands that we visited, Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai. They seemed to be written just for our travel style. Just us and a rental car. No tour groups for us! We have done and seen things only possible with the insight of your books. One night at dinner we were talking to the waiter who, was native Hawaiian. He had asked what we had done that day. We went through a litany of sights and experiences (one being swimming in a fresh water cave). He got a stunned look on his face and then gave me the greatest compliment. Though I don’t think he knew it was a compliment. He said, “Wow, you are more local than I am!” That was so fantastic to hear. I wanted to share that with you since your books helped us be “locals.” Thank you again so much for your fabulous books.”
