Reviewed 26 February 2012

The hotel was excellent but I would not recommend the moderate rooms....No view and very small...we upgraded to a suite and were very happy...If you like a quiet , small hotel in a lovely area then this is your choice...The food is excellent, although expensive and the staff at the hotel is friendly and good. We will come back.

We stayed in the lower building with the fridge, sink, and Microwave so we could make lunches or breakfast, altho' the Lanai HauTree restaurant is delicious. We were so close to the beach, had a gorgeous view of the park, bay and Waikiki in the distance. We did not have to listen to bands playing and drunken crowds as did others who stayed in the crowded Waikiki area. The hike to town by beachwalk or street to catch the expedition buses took about 20 minutes, usually in the dark of early morning. The street people sleeping in the park or on sidewalks were harmless, there is no crime. The hotel provides beachmats, towels & umbrellas. The staff are so polite & helpful; hotel is very clean & the beach & swimming area just a few steps away, was great, with surfing, kayaking, snorkling, etc. I will stay here again.

Room Tip: The Park view rooms are walkups but have a small kitchenette

My husband & I were in Honolulu for 8 days on business and booked ourselves into the Halekulani which is a very upscale elegant hotel in Waikiki. The first two days there was no hot water in the hotel, some boiler problem and we felt the management did not properly respond to our concerns so we moved to the New Otani which was approximately half the cost. We were delighted we changed. The Halekulani is definitely fancier and more elegant but in many ways the New Otani was much more to our taste. Being enclosed in buildings and people in Waikiki is not our style so we appreciated the distance. One could still walk there or take the bus if needed. To us an important part of the Hawaii experience is the beach and the New Otani sits right on an excellent beach with good swimming. The hotel has beach towels, mats, chairs, and flippers available. We booked an ocean view deluxe room which hung out over the beach. The floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors provided a wrap-around view of the ocean and Waikiki. From the lanai we could also see Diamond Head. We loved it so much we chose to have breakfast and cocktails on our lanai rather than in the restaurant which can get crowded and what could be more romantic than that stunning view. The food was very good; many local people come to the charming outdoor restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner occasions. The hotel could use some sprucing up as it is a bit dated in decor but it certainly made up for it in location and views. And, there was hot water!

Room Tip: I would definitely go for the ocean view deluxe. Our room was on the 8th floor and the views were s...

Overall this is a good hotel but there are some buts. The first problem is that this hotel is somewhat away from Waikiki so you really need a car to get around. On the other hand this hotel is really close to the beach. In fact it is on the beach so it's easy to go for your early morning or evening swim. Breakfast is served in a lovely open air terrace filled with shady trees. The problem is that there aren't enough seats to accommodate all guests and opens only at 7 am so you either book in advance or you will queue for a loooong time. The hotel is getting a bit dated and will probably need a bit of TLC some time soon. But overall a nice hotel for a restful hoilday. Prices are a bit on the high side but this is Honolulu.
