There was a guy lincon who greeted us with the most respect. The caffe was very excellent and the tender was very nice and outgoing. The rooms were very clean and neat. The bartender lady was very kind to me and my other half telling us the spots to go to for beaches and told us a little history about the island and the hotel. Overall the hotel is a great experience.

I can let you know this hotel is near Queens Medical Center, only a couple miles away. Perhaps there are even hotels closer but you will never find the compassion and beyond expectations of an entire staff here. From Colette, in customer service who helped book our room to Rene and Lincoln, who both welcomed us and showed more kindness in our time of need as well as making sure our needs were met such as having a parking space below in the garage or extending our stay and so much more. And then there is the Paniolo bar & cafe, by the lobby with the best bartenders, like Allen that will take care of you, this is where people ( locals and tourists; nice mix) gather whether drinking, talking, eating and listening to eclectic music that yu can spend an evening with the stars above.

Advantages of this hotel: Friendly staff, close to Ala Moana Centre and Hilton Lagoon. Fairly good value. Disadvantages of this hotel: We were on the 9th floor and there was quite a lot of road noise, to be expected given the location of the hotel I suppose. There were 4 of us staying (and this was disclosed to the hotel) yet housekeeping only supplied 3 bath towels and 2 standard coffee capsules per day, I had to ask reception to get top ups. The hotel is sort of squeezed between 2 adjoining properties so lacks the ambiance of some of the other hotels in the area that enjoy more gardens and outdoor areas.

I've stayed at many hotels and I have to say, This was a cute and charming hotel. Close to a lot of thing's. They have a small cafe by day and bar at night. The staff was Friendly, Especially the housekeeper Linelle. Always had a great attitude in the morning when she serviced my room. I had question's about activities on the Island and she was so polite and patient and wrote down place's, address and phone numbers for me. Thank you Linelle for taking the time out of your busy schedule to provide the information and reasuring me that it was ok, Guest and customer service comes first (Well said)! Linelle is a very good people person. I stayed on the 7th floor. I will be back with Family next Year and I hope to see you again Linelle. Happy Holidays!

It’s a nice comfortable place to stay except the view wasn’t good. My husband and I had a great experience especially with Linelle, she’s a lovely lady and makes sure you’re comfortable. It’s also affordable.We’ll definitely be coming back.

We had a wonderful stay. We we're happy to see how close we was to everything. Beach, restaurants and the mall. Prime location spot and walking distance. We absolutely loved our stay and our room was well upkept. Thank you to the Housekeeper Linelle who always greeted us every morning and carried a short but sweet conversation. We will surely be back to visit and highly recommend The Equus to Family and Friends. Happy Holiday's.

Good value for money in a handy location. Lincoln at reception was particularly friendly and helpful. Check in was super easy and there is a nice little bar and breakfast area. Easy to get to Waikiki Beach, as well as Ala Moana Centre
