We have just returned from spending two lovely weeks at this delightful Hotel. Our Diamond Head view room on the 18th floor was spacious and spotlessly clean. The bed was the best I've slept in besides my own. The staff endlessly helpful and friendly. The décor is a little tired and would benefit from a new colour scheme but this... More

We booked the Queen Kapiolani based on an very good special price offering (for the period of our stay) and the TripAdvisor reviews I read. I agree with the "Good" to "Very Good" reviews. Although a bit dated, our room was very clean and the king bed comfortable. We had a City view, but a balcony was more important than... More

My husband and I just spent several nights at Queen Kapiolani and we couldn't have had a better stay! They checked us in early and we were pleasantly surprised by how great our room was. We had a corner room on the 9th floor with a city view. The room was extremely clean and everything was in great condition. Is... More

Thankfully we didn't have a cat, else my nightly ritual of swinging it would have been thwarted! Nevertheless, it was clean and well 'made up' each day. The double bed was too small, I'm 6'4 and 120kg and my wife is a 'size 12', so it looked like the hippo and chicken in the bed (but if anyone calls her... More

From my experience, this hotel is a mixed bag. A friend of mine in the travel business used to refer to places such as this as "potential five star properties with three star management". But they seem to be coming around. I am charmed by the economy measures (A/C not on in an empty room, escalators off when nothing is... More
