This hotel does not deserve its rating. From very small bathrooms. No hot water for half my stay. Breakfast area can only hold 8 guests? Very outdated for the toom fee. This needs a overhaul and a new rating.

The room was incredibly comfy and modern.The room had a huge TV, coffee machine, mini refrigerator, PlayStation3 to view free DVDs, modern air con unit and free wi-fi included as part of resort amenity fees. Great staff. Always super friendly and attentive. Delicious Welcome drink on arrival. The hotel is just one block from the beach and close to the...

It's always a pleasure staying at Hotel Renew. I just love that its a small boutique hotel, it's clean with a super friendly staff. I've stayed here multiple times and I've never had a bad experience! They even added a movie rental machine in the lobby which I thought was cute! The front desk, Rachel and Grace were lovely and...

would have given this awesome little hotel 5 stars except for the fact that they impose a mandatory 25$ resort fee. I was here to visit friends and did not use the "amenities" covered by the mandatory fee, so just a shakedown as far as I was concerned (which, in fairness is a problem for MOST hotels in Waikiki). on...

Half a block to beach, on quieter end of Waikiki beach. Excellent and friendly service from all staff. Rooms were not chic but were clean and comfortable. Linen slightly old but also clean, one minor gripe is that the lower sheet did not quite cover the mattress protector at the foot end of the bed. Bathroom was small but also...

The hotel was very accommodating, the staff, front desk and cleaning staff, was very helpful and courteous. The continental breakfast was very good. The person charged with taking care of the continental breakfast, Harold, was very personable, respectful and actually helpful with information about the Waikiki area. Even though it was not his job to give this information he had...

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 10 years, and we've had another great stay Nov 2016. Grace & Rachel at the front desk always made us smile & feel special. As always, a nice note / gift in the suite upon arrival, welcoming us back (nice touch!). Air conditioners appear to have been updated since...

We loved our stay at this hotel. It is a smaller hotel compared to the some of the gaint hotels that sit around the beach. We stayed here for a couple days and really enjoyed it. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are nice and spacious. The beach is super close by and you can get beach towels at...

I echo many of the positive things that other reviewers have written about the hotel. The staff is VERY helpful, friendly and pleasant. Our room was cleaned early in the day, which was nice if we were coming back from a morning activity and wanted to relax in the room before taking off again. The staff will provide beach towels...
