Stayed two nights on business. Staff were friendly. Room was small. Only window was balcony door. Too noisy at night to leave it open but stuffy with it closed. Air conditioner was way too noisy to leave on. Bed was very comfortable with good pillows. Room was clean. Good access to all Waikiki has to offer.

Upon arrival, there was no one at the check-in desk and we had to wait a few minutes for someone to arrive. Going to your room, you need to swipe your room card for access to the elevators which I find odd - just make the swiping card part of the elevator itself. There are far too many elevators and...

Having to scramble last minute for a Hotel, I went into full panic mode as it was for Christmas. My faves were booked and I didn't want to spend a fortune on 2 rooms for 2 nights. I also knew it would be good to have a kitchenette and possibly a grill as the men going love to cook. Plus,...

We were greeted by very friendly, helpful staff. On arrival we were given a complimentary upgrade from studio to 1 bedroom suite 😀. Room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. All facilities in the hotel were well maintained and clean. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for great accommodation. Located close to all amenities and waikiki beach.

Our family decided to celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday with a weekend staycation with a few of her best friends in Waikiki at the Aqua Skyline at Island Colony. We were greeted by the most friendliest hotel staff upon check-in. The front desk representative, Brian, was very professional and immediately asked how he could offer any assistance with restaurants and...

This is my second time staying at the Skyline. Haven't actually given a review but from my experiences this place is worth giving a review. Aqua Skyline is a nice place to stay, we got upgraded for free to a higher room and the view was nice. If you ever stay on a Tuesday they have a managers reception on...

Stayed here for two nights prior to leaving on a cruise. Building has a secured entrance and security guard 24/7. Older building with renovated room had small kitchenette with fridge, sink dishes and microwave. Had a beautiful pool up on 6th floor. Very private and sunny. Excellent location close to great shopping, restaurants, water and sightseeing.

For the price in Waikiki it's ok value and pretty central so just a short stroll to everything. Has a mini mart and was quite surprised to find everything the same price as all ABC stores. Only problem is that with all the huge meals you end up taking leftovers back but the rooms only have a bar fridge.
