I just arrived home and wanted to write this review - I have nothing but great things to say about my stay here - I have been to Hawaii numerous times and stayed many different places, this was one of the best. The room we stayed in was excellent - very newly decorated, great spacious balcony, huge TV, COMFORTABLE BED,...

OK, forget the "free continental breakfast" that was on various websites for this hotel up to the day we checked in (it may still be there). We were told that they hadn't done that for a long time...In spite of a reservation over 4 months old, they couldn't put us into a room that we requested until the third day...

Staff was very friendly, helpful. Rooms were adequate and clean, did have a shower that leaked a bit but overall was pleased with our stay. Didn't spend much time at the hotel anyways,too busy site seeing. Beds were comfortable. The balcony is small but worked for us. We did try the spa on the 2nd floor. The massages were awesome....

I was given a chance to stay at the Palms and I was quite impressed. Very nice rooms (clean and large) nice staff and centrally located. You are not on the beach, but 2 blocks away. Parking is very convenient and easy as well. You are close to pretty much everything at this hotel; a good choice if you don't...

This elegant and attractive hotel is a place that really has it all. The rooms are very attractive and a good layout with a small fridge and microwave along with island style decor make them good for extended stays. The staff was competent and friendly and was eager to help in any way they could. Easy stroll through the Hilton...

Nice hotel but too far from the middle of Waikiki action and main street. Try and stay somewhere closer like the Beachcomber which is great value.

Arrived on Jan 9, drove ourselves from the airport. Hotel is across from the Hilton Hawaiin Village. parking garage is in the building and had to circle around twice to find it. The hotel is in the busy area of Waikiki which is a key factor for the hotel but expect heavy traffic if you drive. There are several bus...
