Very friendly and helpful service. We had an ocean view room which did have an ocean view although understand that there are also buildings in front - the hotel is not beachfront. Still the view to Dismond Head was good- you pay extra for the ocean view to be on the upper floors. For beachfront hotels, you will psy fouble. I didn't ask for it specifically, but you need to be facing the Diamond Head side of Waikiki Beach for the view. I would imagine they allocate the ocean view rooms that way, but may be worth asking because I saw someone asking to be moved from the other side of the hallway to our side of the building.
The oceanfront rooms face the main road and could be noisy at night. Even our room on the side of the building was a bit noisy but that's the price you pay for a central location.
One word of warning - the air conditioning throws air right onto your upper body at night when you're in bed, and clicks on and off all night, so I had to make sure the room was very cool when we went to bed, then turn off the a/c overnight.
The bathrooms are a bit tired and small.
There's no room service but that doesn't matter there are so many restaurants with take out nearby.
Internet was free - good wireless in the rooms as well as Ethernet.
Overall very good mostly because of the central location.
