Halekulani Hotel
Ranked #8 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 November 2011

We have been going annually to Hawaii for the past 30 years and make it a point of staying at the Halekulani for several nights on each trip. We have been there with senior citizens, friends, and young children and the service has always been outstanding. The grounds are beautiful, with great views of Diamond Head. The food at The Orchid and House Without A Key are excellent. Highly recommend romantic dinner at the Orchid at Sunset looking at Diamond Head with Hula dancers under the Banyon Tree.

Room Tip: Go for rooms with Diamnond Head view

If you enjoy relaxing, quiet and an impecable staff, this is the place for you. Just came back from Waikiki. this hotel prides itself on service and they deliver! the bed, pillows and a huge TV certainly help. There is no loud music played in the afternoon or evening. The pool is huge with an abundance of chairs. There is a wonderful turndown service in the evening. this is truly an oasis in the middle of Honolulu. Not to be missed!

Room Tip: A view of Diamond Head and the ocean is tops.

I have stayed here twice now and both times the hotel has exceeded my expectations. By far the best hotel in waikiki. The most serene place to stay 'on the beach'. The interiors are currently being updated, however I did not have any problems with comfort, cleanliness and service with the rooms as they are. The restaurants, in particular "orchids' are 5 star dining. If you want a peaceful relaxing holiday, right in the heart of the action, dont stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking pool also overlook ocean and are a great position

If you get a chance, make your way to Lewers Lounge for an after dinner libation (dining at Orchids first of course). They feature the best in classic drinks, and deliver one of the finest originals in Waikiki: the Hale Passion. Unquestionably the best mixed drink you will ever experience.

Then there is Noly Paa. I believe he is a permanent fixture at Lewers, and rightly so! He plays solo piano several nights a week, and he is awesome. Classically trained, he can play it all. Debussy to The Beatles, showtunes, love songs (contemporary to nostalgic), easy rock to 50's doowop. He interprets each with his own style panache, all solo. You will love his music like all in my party did. A must see and listen!

Last, there is Lewers itself. Lovely and dark; cool and relaxing with elegance and unsurpassed style. You will want to go again and again.

Your stay at the Halekulani will be complete once you've taken advantage of these wonderful hidden treats. Enjoy...aloha!

My husband and I chose to stay at the Halekulani to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, staying 8 days. We only found out days before our arrival that major renovations were underway and were very apprehensive when we arrived. Management could not have been more understanding and upgraded us to a Diamond Head ocean front room. All credit to the hotel, the renovations were carried out very discreetly. From the time we arrived in our room to the time we checked out, we couldn't have asked for more. Service was outstanding, going out of their way to help. Our room was extremely comfortable with wonderful views over Diamond Head and the ocean. We thought the small gift left each night added a special touch to our stay. On the last night we ate at Orchids, food was superb and the view at sunset was out of this world. Can't wait to return when the renovations are completed. After our experience over the 8 days we stayed at the Halekulani, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Waikiki. We were made to feel special.

Room Tip: Recommend the Diamond Head ocean front rooms, it's worth the extra cost, request a room on the 1...
