The Royal Hawaiian is all you would expect it to be......great service, beautiful scenery, and great place to stay. You can't ask for more. Great location for swimming, relaxing, and shopping. You can't beat this location.

We decided on the Waikiki area because of it's history and the many things available to do. We chose the Royal Hawaiian because of it's history and the reviews we read....

Happy and friendly staff at the beach bar. Great view of beach. Reasonable drink price for where you are sitting. About $8 for local beer and $15 for cocktails. Had the trio of dips which lasted me for 3 hours while partner checked out local stores. Cheers

For our anniversary this year I suggested spending part of our trip at the hotel. She loves historic places like the Royal Hawaiian and our visit did not disappoint. The service was...

There's rarely a pink hotel I don't love and this is no exception. I stayed in the historic part of the hotel and the architecture is really dramatic and beautiful. It's in great area of Waikiki. For the money, I can't imagine you could beat it. The bathrooms are in desperate need of an upgrade and the bed was a...

Great old fashioned hotel. Beautifull room on the 3rd floor. Nicole & I really enjoyed our stay. Neat, tidy, very clean. Staff were excellent! We enjoyed sitting on the rocking chairs watching the water. Also sitting at the bar having a few drinks at the waters edge.

He was friendly, accommodating, and did everything he could to ensure that we didn't leave upset. We even shared a common interest of traveling to Las...

Highly recommend reserving an umbrella with chaise lounges. Can't beat that value or experience of resting on the beach! Staff was wonderful and always more than helpful with anything. Concierge very knowledgeable.

We pulled up to the front entrance driveway of the hotel and found this hidden gem, paradise, nestled right on the beach. Everything about this hotel is excellent, the tower ocean view room was perfect beautiful views overlooking Waikiki Beach. Clean, friendly staff, great location. Walking distance to restaurants, bars & shops. Waikiki Beach is definitely full of life, can...
