I just visited the Royal Hawaiian for the eighth time. What a magnificent property in Waikiki! It is an oasis of calm. The views of Waikiki Beach are loveliest in the early morning when having breakfast at the Surf Lanai. Service is warm throughout the hotel. I especially appreciate the kindness of the evening Housekeeping staff and the hostesses at...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

This was our 3rd stay at the Royal Hawaiian. It is iconic and really classy in an old-world style. When you pull off the Main Street and pass the Sheraton you come to this quiet tucked-away pink hotel that reminds you of a Humphrey Bogart movie. Maybe that is why so many people take wedding photos here (multiple brides every...

We spent two nights at the Royal Hawaiian. And we had a great time there! The staff are really nice and everything there are just great! We stayed at the 14th floor of the Mailani Tower. The Oceanview is awesome! However, the breakfast is just average, not much choice of food. They only provide fruits and baked delights for breakfast....

I've grown up going to Hawaii to visit family and had always seen the Royal Hawaiian but this was the first time I stayed there and oh, wasn't it lovely! It's a gorgeous historic hotel and if you want to be in Waikiki, the location is unbeatable. They put me in the new tower, which I believe has nicer (or...

I came with my boyfriend as an early birthday vacation. It was both our first time here and we loved our stay. The concierge was very helpful with our activities(zip lining and luau) and the valet attendants always welcomed us with a smile. This resort is breathtaking! I'd definitely recommend staying here as well as would love to come again!

You don't even know that you're in a city. This quiet and restful hotel is lovely! The rooms are spacious and loaded with extras. The vegetation and views are breathtaking. Service is warm and generous. Couldn't think of a better place to stay right on the beach of Waikiki.
