2330 Kuhio Ave, Waikiki

This 1973 property was formerly the Ohana Waikiki West. Like so many other recent Waikiki hotel transformations, the $110 million spent on this property in 2016 was well worth it. Everything was gutted and replaced, even the elevators and the pool. From the moment you walk in, it has a fresh, modern feel with a lot of warmth. Each of the Garden Inns around Hawai‘i is unique, and we like that about this brand. It’s not overly pretentious or too pricey.

The pool deck isn’t very large for a resort of this size, but it works with a billiard table, plenty of seating and a view overlooking the new International Market Place. (Wish the pool deck had food or drink there, though.) There are two fitness rooms, one with cardio machines and one with free weights and floor space for yoga.

Not all rooms have a lanai. One stack of rooms has no lanais, and one stack has standing-room-only balconies. So if that’s important to you, note it when booking. The rooms themselves are modern without feeling over the top. There are large sinks/vanities in the standard rooms, and most rooms have showers only with handheld showerheads. Some bathrooms have Washlet toilets. Electric tea kettles, microwaves and Keurig coffee makers are in every room. Some rooms have sofa beds, some have couches, so be sure to ask about the amenities when booking. There are family rooms on the pool deck level with huge lanais. Basically there’s a room type for every need. They changed all the windows to double-pane glass, which really helps keep the road noise down when the sliding doors are shut.

Overall, a more than acceptable choice. It’s fairly centrally located—three blocks from the beach. Rooms (280–350 sq. ft.) are $189–$299, Suites (435–610 sq. ft.) are $479–$779.

What Readers Have to Say

“Your guidebooks are by far the best I have ever used. As someone who has visited 40 states and 25 countries and purchased numerous tourist guidebooks I feel I am qualified to pass judgement on your guides. I have purchased all of them and have found them to be very accurate… Your guides make the Frommer’s guides look like the joke that they are. Bravo and keep up the good work.”
