I had stayed at the "Queen" a few years ago, and overall it is certainly fair value, a great location, and the rooms decent. This year, due to a better offering at an upscale chain, we choose to spend our first night at our "old friend"
Check in was efficient, although only 1 elevator was working, and this apparently had been the case for a while. Our room faced west, with no view, and on turning on the lights, I noted the worn and stained cloth chairs under the window. As we had arrived late in the evening, a shower seemed like a good idea, and on leaving the bathroom, I detected a very wet carpet in the room area. My thoughts are, it may have been from the A/C system. The beds were comfortable enough, and other wise the room was clean.
At $150+ per night (plus tx) there are a lot of other options out there. The Queen could use a real hood overhaul and coat of paint, i n my humble opinion. I understood, tourism is up currently in Waikiki, but I feel, there are better values in the same area of town.
