  • Beautiful and charming hotel.

    by KrisR255060 on 2018-02-15 010:28 pm

    My husband and I stayed in a garden room for 4 nights and enjoyed stepping back in time to experience Waikiki. Smack bang in the middle of it all but without the city noise.
    The hotel is beautiful and the view from the hotel looking out to the beach is spectacular.
    The room was luxurious, comfortable and full of old world charm, however the bathroom is on the small side.

    We had drinks and lunch at the Mai Tai bar over looking the beach on one occasion which was pricey for what it was. We didn't eat any other meals at the hotel. We had breakfast each day at the hula grill, next door above dukes, worth the walk for a superb and reasonably priced meal with a great view.

    The beach services were great, we payed for half a day beach umbrella and lounges after midday.
    We had a massage at the spa, the treatment was good but the service wasn't as professional as you would expect.
    On leaving, one of the baggage guys was a little rude to us and kind of dampened our view of the hotel after all other lovely staff we encountered.

    Overall a lovely peaceful stay but it is on the pricey side but I was willing to pay for the experience of staying at the iconic pink lady. I believe it's worth doing once if you admire beautiful things.

  • Where you will want to be.

    I have not been for a while but am trying to organise a return to Honolulu and the Royal Hawaiian sometime in the next few weeks. This is where you want to be on Waikiki beach. Sit at breakfast only feet from the sand and plan your day in the sun and surf.
    There is no better position for anything and everything Honolulu offers. The hotel is oh so pleasant and charming and staff the same. Understated elegance all the way.

  • Luxury and Style

    Wow -

    This place is opulent, exquisite and unique.

    The staff should be highly rated and nothing is too difficult. We couldn't make up our minds if we wanted the original building with no balcony or the beach balcony with the amazing view and they allowed us to visit both rooms and then decide.

    This place is everything plus more.

  • Oasis

    The Royal Hawaiian was an oasis during our stay on Waikiki. Our historic garden view room was spacious and lovely. The common areas of the hotel are inviting. The pastries in the bakery, the drinks at the Mai Tai and the food in the Surf Lanai all delicious. Hope to go back someday.

  • Terrific Service Classic Stay

    by Derek D on 2018-02-09 05:26 pm

    This was our third stay at the Royal Hawaiian over a span of approximately seven years. Without further ado, here is the good, the bad, the meh ;)

    The Good - It's the classic pink palace.................wonderful central location in Waikiki. Beach space is ample, gentle ocean with small drop off, beach chairs available for rent. The room was perfect with soft bed, soft balcony couch and ottoman, spectacular view of the beach and Diamondhead. The Royal Hawaiian Center is adjacent and easily accessed from the back of the property. Separate check in for the tower suites. Grounds are well maintained, many other restaurants and shopping within walking distance, so ditch the car rental, you will not need it unless you're venturing out to explore the island.

    The Bad - Although the room comes with a bidet, the control panel looked dated. Breakfast appeared to be on the pricey side.............$18 for french toast?? Pool is very small, but most of our time is spent on the beach. I also generally include a mention of the daily resort fee in this section, because I view a daily resort fee as a fleecing charge (just raise the rate by "X" number of dollars if it's that important). In fairness, every hotel that we stay, regardless of how spectacular, will always get penalized in the review for charging a daily resort fee. It is my hope to someday eradicate all daily resort fees.... ;)

    The Meh - For such a beautiful hotel, this is probably a bit nitpicking. The property as viewed from the beach could use a paint refresh................some of the iconic pink hues have faded over the years. Also, I would love to purchase the classic pink robe and/or a fitted or stretch fit mesh iconic pink hat with the resort logo. Unfortunately, the hat doesn't exist and the robe belt loops felt a bit high when wearing the robe.

    All in all, a fine, upscale, and iconic stay in Waikiki. We've stayed at the Royal Hawaiian for our honeymoon, a return trip, our five year anniversary, and now a babymoon!! Only once did we stray to a competitor's property, but never again. My wife and I cannot wait to return next year!! ;)
