This facility is mostly time shares, but you can request a reservation. Rooms are clean and well cared for. Nothing fancy, but certainly adequate. Conveniently located near the beach, restaurants, shopping in a safe and beautiful part area. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

My room is a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom room. Comes with a bar fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. There are a few other appliances available from housekeeping no charge. A full sized refrigerator costs $25/wk. I found the bed very comfortable. The bathroom is small with limited storage. Also found the water temp in the shower fluctuated a little....

The Imperial Hawaii Resort is very well located. Everything is just across-restaurants, ABC grocery store just on ground floor and nice sandy beach just 3-4 minutes to walk.

Beautiful lobby with a convenient market on site. Great location near the beach, shopping, restaurants, and Fort DeRussy! Nice rooms with two bedrooms and two balconies and a full kitchen. The furniture and mattresses could use an update but it's well maintained. We used a timeshare exchange to book this resort and it was very nice vacation.

The reason I rated it 3 out of 5 is that it has a great location. For the rest it is less, at least the unit given to us. The units are very small. They do not even have a night table on both sides of the bed, which is NOT a king size bed. But the worst aspect was...

I really liked this hotel. I stayed here for 8 nights with my wife, my sister and my parents. It's an apartment hotel and we had one bedroom with a bathroom, very clean. The rest of the family slept in the living room/kitchen and also had a bathroom. The only down side was that the kitchen/living room area was a...

Near everything but if you don't want to be in the middle of the tourist attractions this is nothing for you. The hotel was nice the only thing was that the room was a bit small fore a family of five.

I stayed at the Imperial on the 3rd floor. I had read mixed reviews so wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. I was pleasantly surprised. The room had recently been renovated. I mean renovated from the top to the bottom. I was in a studio with a murphy bed. The bed was brand new and was very comfortable....
