Several other reviews have noted that this legendary hotel is an oasis of calm amidst the noise and bustle of Honolulu. We couldn't agree more. A mood of calm pervades the entire hotel-- from the muted rooms, to the pool area, to the lovely outside bar with its nightly hula/music shows. The shows are great in person, but you can...

We enjoyed our stay at Halekulani, but probably wouldn't return. The service was amazing, albeit a bit too "distant"....and this was our feeling about Halekulani in general. Staff did everything they could to help us, but we had the feeling that it wasn't natural, but just expected of them. Our kids (aged between 7 and 14) were certainly made to...

The hotel was beautiful and ocean views from the room were breathtaking. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and just spoiled us. Our hotel had a doorbell and closet with satin hangers. Fresh fruit, chocolates and nice gift were in the room waiting for us upon arrival. This hotel even had jewelry, apparel and accessory shops. I can't wait to...

Went to HI for 10 days. We rented a house in Lanikai for 7 days and then stayed here our last 4 days. The Hotel is amazing. The rooms are oldish but kept impeccably clean. The service is top notch. We had dinner in Orchids one night and the food was DELICIOUS. We had lunch and breakfast at the more...

Friendly staff, good location, nice lobby area. Building itself is typically highrise box (unlike royal Hawaiian or Moana Surfrider, which have beautiful architecture & grounds). Service good but not great, kept waiting for table (by mistake) while restaurant empty & others seated ahead of us, which should not happen at top hotel). Food was good, if overpriced, typical for Waikiki....

I stayed at Halekulani for 4 nights (in room 337) from April 27. The hotel itself is a very tranquil place to stay. However, the experience at High Tea was not very satisfactory. I was ignored by the single waiter there for 5-10 mins at which point I simply left. Experience at Orchids Restaurent was excellent and everything else about...

We are just back from Honolulu and stayed at The Halekulani. Here are our comments step by step: When we arrived to check in we waited in line to check in . Nobody greated us. After the receptionist finished with the previous customer she did not raise her face and kept us waiting while typing on her computer for 5...

In my opinion the Halekulani is simply sublime. Yes it has an incredible location, but then so do a few other hotels in this area which would not rate a mention. I have been here on many occasions and there has not been one stay at this hotel that has been less than perfect. The rooms are beautiful, restful, and...

I have to admit I'm biased, my wife and I were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at Hau Terrace in the Halekulani. The hotel is elegant and understated. Everything is well thought out and well placed. Wide open spaces tastefully decorated whispering paradise. When you arrive they take you straight to the comforts of your room for check-in....
