I have nothing but praise for this resort. My wife and I stayed in an ocean front suite and found it much more comfortable then the comparable suite we had at the Halekulani last year. The Beach is great and you are central to all of the fun spots. Service was top notch and I would like to give a...

My wife and I love the location of this property plus the old Hawaii ambiance and charm: hula lessons under the banyan tree, watching catamarans & surfers in the distance. Collin & Gloria are great pool / beachside attendants...smiling even at 7 am. We love staying in the old section (even though rooms are smaller) for the sheer history of...

We didn't stay at the resort, but from all appearances, it's a first class place. We had drinks and appetizers under their signature banyan tree on the beach. Awesome scenery of Diamond Head and the beach of Waikiki. Very good food, but we went for the scenery. Valet park and validate at the Banyan Tree Bar.

Impressive entrance, sweeping staircase, rather colonial feel in the main areas. Pleasant reception staff. Our room in the Tower was supposed to have an endless city view, in fact we also got a partial ocean view, which was a nice bonus. Room very clean and well maintained. The only thing we felt was unusual was the hanging rail for clothes...

Waikiki can be a bit overwhelming if you tend to prefer less touristy spots, so finding a hotel that hadn't been renovated--or torn down and completely rebuilt--into a generic resort was a major coup. We stayed in the Banyan Wing, so the room was smaller than average. To be honest, I really liked it. The high ceiling kept it from...
