“Good value for the money”
Reviewed 4 May 2012 via mobile

The location is amazing. Away from the downtown area so you feel more secluded. But it's only a ten minute walk to all the action. The beach is beautiful, very clean and family friendly. Many large parks in the area. Nearly all rooms have beautiful views. Mountain views are breathtaking along with ocean views. We were lucky to have both. The rooms are small and a bit dated but clean and with new flatscreen TVs and comfortable beds. It is being renovated but they are quiet. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It may not be a ideal spot for a honeymoon but for a trip to have a great time and feel safe and in a clean environment it is perfect. I would come back here anytime and recommend this place to the budget conscious traveler who wants a great location and clean place to sleep.

Liked this hotel a lot for its location,and being small. Nice little beach with easy access for surfing or snorkeling (which is good there). Locals access ocean here, so feels not so touristy. No pool, but who needs it. Being close to Diamond Head & across the streeet from Kapiolani Park, great for morning walks & runs. The rooms are smallish, but adequate. Parking is expensive, but had no problem parking for free in the park area. Parking across the street is free from 6PM - 10AM. Access to highways is not bad either, and you don't have to cross Waikiki. Easy walk to Waikiki, but late at night it feels a little dicey, recommend a cab..

Room Tip: Stay in the main hotel, only 9 floors.

We have stayed here four times in transit to other islands . We have enjoyed rooms overlooking the wonderful Sans Souci beach and rooms with a view down Waikiki Beach and up the mountains.The hotel is quiet and very friendly. The two restaurants in the hotel are excellent. The Hau Tree Restaurant is a great place for a relaxing breakfast on the edge of the beautiful beach. The Miyako restaurant serves exceptional Japanese cuisine and has a very affordable early bird special with many choices of delicious entree every night. The sunsets views over the beach from the restaurant are spectacular. Walk down the beach towards Waikiki and past the aquarium ,you will find the Queen's Surf Cafe on the beach. This terrific outdoor cafe receives rave reviews from locals. There is live music every night, delicious shrimps and barbecues every weekend.
It is great fun to be a part of the local fun in Kapiolani Park, a wonderful place for long walks behind the hotel.There is an excellent convenience store on site.
The hotel is well situated for public transportation to many island sites including Hanauma Bay snorkling park, China Town and the public bus that circles the entire island .
This hotel is a respite from the crowds and frantic pace of Waikiki but is within easy walking distance of the action .
There is a convenient and inexpensive shuttle service to and from the airport.
This is not a huge hotel so we always worry that too many good reviews will increase its popularity and make it a challenge to reserve space when we return.Request a renovated room.
Our only concern this trip was the noise in the hotel during the day because of the renovations to the ocean front and ocean view rooms.We were there on two occasions, ten days apart and the noise made it difficult to remain in our rooms.During both visits renovations were occurring in nearby rooms despite requests for a quieter location. I am sure that this is a temporary problem but if you plan a visit soon, it would be a good idea to check on the status of the renovations.
This is one of the finer places to stay in the Hawaiian Islands and has received many awards for service and location.
Highly recommended! The best and most affordable hotel directly on the beach. We hope to return again.

I recently stayed at the New Otani as part of a conference. The hotel was selected for participants specifically because of its location to a great beach. The beach was easy to access, not too crowded and perfect for swimming!

Reviewers who said the decor is outdated are correct. The facility is in need of upgrade, which appears to be in progress. I was upgraded to a room with a beautiful view of Diamond Head (no view of water), that was delightful to look at. The nice patio was a plus.

The room itself is in need of refurbishment. The bed appeared to be two twin beds pushed together, and there was no work desk in the room. The tub had a hard time draining. However, the room was clean and spacious. Though I would not choose it for a romantic getaway, it was fine for a solo business traveller.

The restaurant downstairs under the banyon tree was beautiful, and a great place to start the day. However, if you weren't dining at the restaurant, coffee was hard to come by. The hotel does set out the airpots and small styrophome cups from 6:30am-7:00am, but beyond that time you'll need to leave the hotel. Starbucks (the closest coffee shop) was about a 10 minute walk, each way. The hotel bar stops serving food at 9pm, so this is also an issue if you come back late at night. You'll need to walk into town to find a bite to eat.

The staff were friendly, and free beach towels and internet access were real plusses, too.

Really like this hotel. Easily walkable to Waikiki but quiet and away from the hustle & bustle. Rooms small but remodeled ones are really nice. Very clean & a friendly staff.
