Reviewed 14 July 2012

I stayed here in June/July for 2 weeks with my boyfriend and we liked the hotel very much.
The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. I arrived after an overnight flight from Australia, got there around 12:30pm and the room was ready. Other people have commented how small the rooms are but we found it adequate for us. (I can understand if you had 4 people in one room it would be a bit crowded!)
Clean linen and towels, comfy bed to sleep in, great location and of course a fantastic view (we were on the 12th floor so I'd definitely recommend a high room). The nicest thing was having a drink on the balcony overlooking the beach!
The cleaners cleaned the rooms even if you left quite late in the day (sometimes we would leave at 12 or 1pm, and come back to find the room was cleaned)
The only slight downside was the air con in our room was a bit rattly and noisy but we got used to it and it ended up being like white noise in the background while we slept. The location, being right on the beach and the main street meant if you didn't have the air con you probably would have heard all the noise of people from the street (esp as we were there over 4th of July, things were a bit loud but it didn't matter to us)
If you want a 5 star hotel with all the trimmings, this is not for you.
If you're looking for a no-frills, no-fuss, but clean and pleasant hotel in a central and beautiful location, this is a great choice!

I would recommend this hotel for those who want to be close to the beach and the downtown area, at an affordable price. Great views.

Pay extra for the oceanfront room- it's worth it. Sit and read the complimentary paper each morning from your porch while watching the surfers and all the activity along the main drag in Waikiki. We booked for the first week in July and had a partial view of 4th of July fireworks, a prime spot for the 4th of July parade. The park across the street had several evening performances which we enjoyed from our perch above the crowds.

Clean room. Friendly service. Limited parking is available on site, underground. There is satellite location two blocks away but if you choose to park below the hotel, choose a smaller rental car when heading out from the airport as the spots are tight in the circle-shaped parking lot and on several occasions required one of us to get out and guide the driver as so to avoid hitting the walls.

Only downside- the rooms are very clean and updated but they are small. The other person traveling with me is 6'0 and he had to crouch down in the shower. A beefy gentleman chatted with us in the elevator- I mentioned I'd be writing a review and he said, "Be sure and say the rooms look bigger in the picture!" Noted, sir.

Please know that before you book, the beds and bathroom are on the small side- I wouldn't put 4 adults in the same room together and if you are a larger person, you might not be comfortable here.

However, my traveling companion said he would definitely book the same room again- the spectacular views, excellent location (walk to Duke's, the Honolulu Zoo and the aquarium, beach just steps away) and the price made for a really amazing deal.

Room Tip: Oceanfront. You came all the way to Hawaii, enjoy that view you dreamed about.

What a welcoming smile on arrival - mid morning. I was given a choice of view levels plus I was given my room immediately.
Excellent views - which I asked for, & paid extra. Clean rooms. Very comfortable bed. Good reading lighting. An adequate sized refridgerator. Rooms had been recently re-decorated and renovated with a beachy theme and colours - very tastful & calming. Bathroom adequate, but tight and spotlessly clean.
Air con was quiet, lift worked efficiently and rooms maintained to a high standard with daily service .. Reception delivered a kettle for a tea drinker. Reception was most helpful, as was the tour desk. You just cannot beat American hospitality.

Room Tip: Pay the extra a get a room with an ocean view. Great to watch the world go by if you have a quiet d...

This was our third time at The Circle. It has a wonderful location-right in the heart of Waikiki. The view from the Ocean room is spectacular and while the room is small it is clean, the beds are comfy and the shower is great. The staff (John and Andrew) were very helpful and a very special thanks to Guy who went out of his way to help my daughter and I with our many,many questions.
We love The Circle and we hope to be back next year.
The only down side was the introduction of a $10 amenities fee (this I feel should be optional).

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up.
