A chic, urban vibe hotel that opened in 2013. We love the huge lobby in this boutique hotel with its many comfy sofas and books and vintage board games like “Life.” It’s also where they serve the free continental breakfast and coffee and tea all day.

There are limited views of the ocean from some rooms whose decor is in keeping with the modern feel of the hotel. Even though the standard rooms are small, they make very good use of the space by including an under-bed drawer storage. The 1/1 penthouse has the best view and is very spacious and comfortable. Other penthouses have themes like a library and a musician—both for obvious reasons. (We prefer the latter with an enormous painting of John Lennon and lots of bright colors.) All rooms provide use of a tablet to surf the net, watch Netflix or order extra towels, etc. (They only work inside the hotel—so no walking away with it.) A couple of minutes walk to Waikiki Beach Center, and they will loan you towels, beach chairs and boogie boards for use there.

Rooms (210 sq. ft.) are $179–$279, suites with walk in showers (440 sq. ft.) are $219–$299, studio penthouses (440 sq. ft.—one has a lanai) are $399, 1/1 penthouse with full kitchen (1,500 sq. ft. plus lanai) is $799. Some discounts available on rooms.

“Just wanted to let you know that we used the Maui Revealed book on our 1st trip to Maui in May of 2005 and it was the best guidebook for finding and doing everything on the island… Very well written and filled with a lot of useful information.”
