Despite the name, it’s a long walk to the beach from this hotel. The common areas are chic and modern, room decor is in line with the current modern Waikiki style.

This hotel started out life as an Ohana hotel, and they kept Ohana’s trademark tiny showers in most rooms, so if you need a tub, you will want to book a suite. The lobby is the heartbeat of the hotel with a light food convenience market, business center, coffee shop, lounge and restaurant. They have a free mini golf course onsite for guest use, grab the putters from the lobby by the front desk. We think their main pool is one of the prettier ones in the city at a resort of this size with a waterfall to drown out the street noise. They have live music by this pool on most Fridays. Their second pool is often used for spa treatments at their Spa Pure (which, by the way, has some unusual treatments like a granite sauna that is actually a hot stone you lie on—cooler than it sounds). Their free 24-hour fitness room comes with a stock of fresh green apples as your post-workout reward. The coin-op washer/dryer status can be tracked on a website, so you don’t have to sit there and wait for your laundry to finish.

This is a solid hotel for business travelers, and the fact that there’s no resort fee is an added bonus in today’s market. Oddly they charge $0.79 for local calls. Rooms (199 sq. ft.) are $159–$179. Deluxe rooms add a microwave (245–299 sq. ft.) and are $189–$209. Suites (390–1,022 sq. ft.) are $219–$249. Almost a Solid Gold Value.

What Readers Have to Say

“I recently returned from 2 weeks in Oahu. As with your first three books, your new book represents the state-of-the-art in guidebook writing. It was with me constantly on my travels throughout the island and greatly enriched my visit. As I have written to you before, your books are not only packed with invaluable information, they are amusing and fun to read.”
