2424 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki

The Hyatt Regency is one of the bigger Waikiki resorts. It consists of two towers surrounding a huge, open atrium with gobs of shops and a three-story man-made waterfall that makes for an impressive lobby. Their 10,000-sq.-ft. Na Ho‘ola Spa has some breathtaking views. You’re right across the street from Waikiki Beach Center, but it’ll take a little time to make your way through the resort to the beach. The pool area feels a bit cramped and small for such a large resort. The ocean-facing cabanas are reasonably priced at $60 per day and include water, fruit and cookies. There is a seasonal children’s program, and they even take the keiki off-site to places like the Waikiki Aquarium and the zoo.

While the resort might not feel as Hawaiian as some of the others in Waikiki, it’s a nice place to stay, and the rooms are big and comfortable, if a tad stark even after the 2016 renovations. But they added smart TVs to hook up your devices and even a number to text to get you things like extra towels you used to call the front desk for. Because the buildings are octagonal, the ocean views might directly face the ocean, or they might sit at an angle. Either way you won’t get tired of looking down on the beach. Many cultural activities are included with your resort fee; there is a cultural adviser on site and hula shows on Fridays. This is a “pet friendly” property, so Fido and Kitty can even have their own beds and treats.

Rooms (410–500 sq. ft.) are $219–$569. Regency rooms (410–500 sq. ft.) are $289–$639, suites (500–2,840 sq. ft.) are $419–$2,169.

What Readers Have to Say

“First of all I would like to thank you for the best vacation I have enjoyed, ever! I am in the U.S. Navy, currently stationed at Pearl Harbor, HI. After being stationed here for two and a half years, also taking multiple courses through Hawaii Pacific University I personally felt I knew a lot about the Hawaiian Islands. Boy was I wrong!!! Your guidebook was recommended to me from believe it or not – your competitors! Multiple people on Frommer’s Web site had placed a post that explains your book to be the best way to plan a trip to Hawaii. Your book was phenomenal! From the planning to being there to enjoying meals (My goodness the food!)… Overall your book was so helpful that I bought it for the island I live on!”
