201 Beach Walk, Waikiki
Visit website

This resort sits on top of the Waikiki Beach Walk shopping center. The Hula Tower is closest to the water, and the Aloha Tower has most of its ocean views blocked by the Trump Tower building.

The resort doesn’t feel like a contemporary Hawaiian resort. The lobby area has an awkward and uninviting arrangement; half of it consists of a driveway with some benches to sit on while you wait for your car. The other half is a small sitting area with check-in desks.

The suites themselves are not overly large at 416–550 sq. ft. for a one bedroom, and they have no closets—just one armoire for your clothes. The best views are from the Hula Tower’s end-facing rooms above the 19th floor, which can peer over the Halekulani Resort. The Embassy based their view designations on whether you can see the ocean from the sofa. (Cool—we wish all resorts did that.) The kitchenette has a microwave and fridge, but no utensils or plates in the room (you can request some).

The pool deck on the fourth floor feels crowded with many lounge chairs and tables. They did make an effort to include free extras like hot breakfasts, nightly drinks, entertainment (some nights) and snacks by the pool. (No blender drinks, though, and you need to get there early.) Since breakfast is included, they charge $65 per person per day for extra adults in a suite, so gorge yourself to make it worth your while. Popular with families.

Rack rates seem high to us. 1/1s (416–550 sq. ft.) are $509–$649, 2/2s (747–779 sq. ft.) are $789–$989. Most do not pay those rates, however, and some good deals can knock them down quite a lot.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just wanted to write to tell you that your Hawaii guidebooks are the best that I have ever used. I almost wish that you had them for everywhere I visit! On our recent trip to the Big Island and O’ahu, we purchased the Big Island Guide because the island was new to us and the guide had some very good pictures, which is a necessity for me in a guidebook. I don’t know anything worse than picking up a guidebook in the store that has all information and absolutely no pictures! It is not appealing at all and I have no desire to buy them. However, your guidebooks had great pictures to show us exactly what we would see before we arrived so that we could decide if it looked like a cool place to go. I also like the way the book is set up so that as we drove around the island, the sites corresponded with what was written in the book. It was also written from a resident’s perspective and let us know the truth about the location, unlike other books that only have basic information and does not tell me what is worth seeing or not…Thank you very much for your time and I really hope to purchase more of your guides in the future. They are awesome!”
