The "Pink Lady on he Beach" never disappoints. One of the grandest hotels in the world, from the carved wood doors, wallpaper and carpeting, this beauty is centrally located on Waikiki Beach and close to shopping, restaurants and sand! I'd live here forever if I could... and drink Mai Tais all day!

This is classic luxury. You walk in and feel the history. Great spot on Waikiki and the Azure restaurant is a delight, The MaiTai bar - my oh my in a good way! Also try the Noa for outstanding Thai food -service there was 5 star. The concierge desk is first rate and they have a hospitality room for guest...

This historic pink hotel on the Waikiki strand, displayed class, excellent service and overall quality. As we stayed in the historic portion of the hotel we can not comment on the more modern section of the hotel. We had a very large room in the historic section which had all the amenities one expects in a top end hotel. The...

Find the provided iPad in the room as soon as you arrive to locate details about the daily activities and events on the grounds. There are two pools you can use. The small round one is on the Diamond Head side of the hotel and has very little space. The larger newer pool is nearer to the Sheraton and is...

Stayed here 6 nights in connecting rooms in the old building. Rooms are spacious, curtains dark and we were in rooms 315/316 which we found to be quiet. There is complimentary waters every day in the room. We prebooked beach chairs which I recommend as not many around the pool. If you have young children I would book cabana around...

I have stayed at the Pink Palace quite a few times over the past 50 years and have rarely been disappointed. However, on my last visit I was surprised and very disappointed by a couple of notable changes. Paper cups for coffee in your room is in my opinion totally unacceptable at a luxury resort such as the Royal Hawaiian....

We had a delightful visit at the Royal Hawaiian! Staying in the tower on the 10th floor gave us a beautiful view of Waikiki Beach and it's amazing sunsets. Our time here was reflective of my father-in-law's time at Hickam Field and the memories of his visit at this very beach and property. The staff was most accommodating and willing...
