They really do treat you like royalty, like you are the only people in the hotel. The gardens, restaurants and shopping were great! The location on Waikiki is super with many amenities. If this hotel fits into your budget I would not hesitate to recommend it.

This is an excellent hotel as you would expect at the rates charged. However, the Azure dining, which is of a very high standard, lost me with its prices and tipping policy. A buffet breakfast was USD38 and the bill came with an 18 or 20%tip, my choice, which makes it a very expensive breakfast. Needless to say we only...

After walking along the beach we stopped in for a drink and a bite. It was late afternoon but before the rush so got a table beachside with a wonderful view. Even though it was not crowded the service was slow. We ordered drinks which took a while to get delivered. Also asked for water which never got delivered. So...

Aloha K O, Thank you for sharing your experience with us at the legendary Mai Tai Bar. We are delighted that you had the opportunity to drink and dine with us, however, we are very disappointed to hear that the overall service at our restaurant was less than impressive. The level of service you received is unacceptable, and we apologize...

My friend and I went their to enjoy the sun and water. The hotel was just great with a wonderful staff of people that catered to our wishes. Being 73 years old I and my partner felt like we were on our honey moon.

I have stayed at this property many times and always wish I had stayed longer. The views from the tower are amazing. The rooms and suites are awesome and the people who work there are exceptional. One of the great places in the world!!!

We wanted to stay in an historic hotel on our visit to Hawaii and this hotel was a good choice. It's run by the Sheraton, which has a huge modern hotel next door. I love the tall open spaces on the ground floor and I really enjoy the pink theme throughout. It's a happy, friendly, relaxed, and not "uppity" place....

We visit Oahu about once a year and love to stay at the Royal Hawaiian. It is busy in the Waikiki area, but it is still quiet and relaxed at the Royal Hawaiian. The hotel is on the beach and close to many activities in the Honolulu area as well as shopping. The staff are extremely pleasant and always ready...

The hotel is located right ON Waikiki Beach and difficult to reach via one-way streets, so if you have a car use GPS and don't get discouraged. Taxi is easy. We had three rooms in the historic hotel, the 1927 original, and the rooms were gorgeous. Huge and not plastic/modern but incredibly comfy. Great character. Amazing staff who were super...

We chose this hotel for our visit because we had stayed here 20+ years ago with our children and wanted to show his children the spot. I am so happy we did that. This place is beautiful, comfortable and a perfect spot on the best beach on Waikiki. They had made so many upgrades while keeping the historic look and...

“Older rooms but well maintained, plenty of clean towels (never had to ask for extras). Should have fans in every room. I stood in two different rooms over 9 days, first room had a fan and second room didn't. Definitely noticed the difference (stuffy without a fan). Ask for room with a fan, I would definitely come back again!”
