My Husband and I have just returned to Australia after an amazing stay at The Royal Hawaiian. This was a special trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the minute we set foot into the hotel we could not fault a thing. The Staff are all amazing, very cheerful and cannot do enough for you. The hotel itself screams history,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 January 2017 via mobile

I stayed here for the week over Christmas. It was my first visit to Hawaii and I'm delighted to have spent my time in this hotel. It is absolutely beautiful with a wealth of history. It's old world charm combined with modern amenities. It has a special energy that is only found every so often. I couldn't fault the place...

Everything was amazing as it has always been. The beach is busy but beautiful and the private pink chairs for Royal Hawaiian guests add to the experience. The hotel is right next to The Royal Hawaiian Shopping center, which has everything from P.F. Changs to sunglass hut. The Mai Tai bar is great but recently they changed the menu and...

Chose this property for our Honeymoon stay during the last week in Feb-boy, did we hit the jackpot!!! Located smack in the middle of it all-no vehicle needed, everything in walking distance. Shopping galore, restaurants all over and the ocean is your backyard! Staff is genuinely excited & willing to help. From valet to front desk to housekeeping-kinda nice, given...

This was a trip for my birthday to one of the iconic hotels in the world. It was a beautiful hotel but I felt invisible, the staff were impersonal, our ocean view room didn't have an ocean view, there was no info on inclusions, everything was extra! No one could give us any info on transport except to recommend the...

This is not an luxury collection hotel. The rooms on the Malani tower are dated. Wind passes through with strong force and heard! What made the hotel was it's service and historic significance. Concierge and director of guest services personnel has changed annually. It doesn't seem as welcoming or friendly

I have visited/stayed at a few hotels in Waikiki for business, and this was by far my favorite. Azure (their restaurant) is spectacular - Micah is doing a great job running the place. His staff was welcoming and knowledgeable. I was greeted by the front desk by name (not sure how they knew), and ushered seamlessly to my room. Modern...

It was truly a lovely stay at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel! The iconic Pink hotel is very classy and felt like old Hawaii. The surroundings were lush and very serene and welcoming. We were greeted with delicious banana nut muffins. The doors to the rooms are craved. Large king size bed was very comfortable. I look forward to staying there...
