If you are looking to be in the heart of Waikiki in a mostly renovated hotel with old world charm this is the place. The beach is crowded, and umbrellas on the beach cost extra ($50.00) but shade under the old Banyan tree at the pool is free. There is a steady stream of Asian Weddings and brides in white...

unfortunately, we did not stay here. But we visited the resort after dinner, to have drinks and listen to the pianist in the lobby. Afterwards, we sat on the front porch and rocked in the old fashioned rocking chairs. Great Ambiance and friendly servers.

We stayed for 10 days recently and could not fault this beautiful hotel. Great location right on the beach, amazing food and great service. It really was lovely in every way. The doormen were so helpful and for a busy hotel, they still managed to make us feel special all the time. Best coffee just out the front door too!

Sure, the rooms and bathrooms are smaller than you'd find in a newer hotel, but the Surfrider has a great beach location and, for you runners, is within walking distance to the marathon's starting and finishing areas. The street below can be noisy with partiers, but chances are you'll be too jet-lagged to notice.
