Hyatt high praise, Marriot low praise, and United Airlines no service at all...
RYAN R.
Jun 29 2012
Hyatt Regency was the best. The hotel manager Mark and the 'Shore' restaurant manager David were outstanding. Mark at the Hyatt was outstanding and took care of us in the best possible way. The Hyatt hotel in Honolulu is an amazing facility with an amazing staff. The hotel restaurant the 'Shore' is wonderful and the food is 5 star. David the 'Shore' manager has done a world class job putting together a menu and food quality that is second to none. The Sheraton at Waikiki is a great location and wonderful building with great beach access and pools. The Sheraton though lacks in staff service and a management staff that is not very capable of dealing with or following up on special requests or concerns. United Airlines.........please read below....wow what a disappointment and ripoff.... United Airlines hates families United Airlines hates babies United Airlines uses Federal Law to commit fraud against passengers United Airlines treats customers as criminals United Airlines refuses to ‘speak’ with customers United Airlines traumatizes small children United Airlines charged us $79.00 per ticket additional to upgrade our seats on an upcoming trip to Hawaii. This was for a total of 4 passengers consisting of 2 adults, I child, and 1 infant in which they were fully aware of. Upon arriving at the ‘United Airlines’ terminal at LAX international the United Airlines clerk informs us that we are not able to check in due to the fact that we are seated in a row with an emergency exit. Emergency exits cannot be occupied by any children or by an adult holding an infant. When we tried to explain that ‘United Airlines’ charged us additional for these seats and were aware of who was traveling the response was always….”there is nothing we can do”…. ‘United Airlines’ clerks would then move our family into seat all over the plane. If we wanted to sit together as we have made arrangements prior and paid extra for we would have to do it on our own. When ask of the clerk if they could locate some passengers that would be willing to switch seats the response was “…we cannot do that…” This though was only a valid statement for some passengers as the same clerk proceeded to page our 7 year old daughter to the counter to find out is she would switch her seat with another woman who was having similar problems. Once on the plane we find out that upwards of 5 families are all having the same problem with ‘United Airlines’. ‘United Airlines’ lies to the customer and takes their money; when called on it at the airport the clerks then use Federal laws to shut you up and ignore you in order to just continue this fraud as they wish. On the plane ‘United Airlines’ has no facilities for baby changing on an over 5 hour flight. Flight attendants tell families that the planes were not meant for such distances and were not outfitted for such a trip in the right way. ‘United Airlines’ flight attendants then proceed to instruct us to change our 8 month old son on the floor in the rear of the plane in front of an “emergency exit”. This is an “emergency exit” such as we were told children including infants could not be near. “United Airlines” on our return flight from Kauai, Hawaii Lihue Airport give families no assistance with check in at their semi-staffed touch screen check in counter. The clerks are more comfortable assisting the single passengers and or couples not the families. When clerks are asked to assist you they take your information and while you wait continue to assist various other single passengers with numerous questions. “United Airlines” clerk even refuses to listen to any information from us and again states to us that our seats are not valid since we have an infant and we are booked in an “emergency exit”. This is the same seats in which we were once again changed and additional $79 per ticket for. Since the clerk refuses to discuss the issues with us they walk away and tell us to figure it out at the gate. When arriving at the gate we find 2 additional families having the same problem as us. The clerk there tells us that there is nothing he can do and wishes to seat us all over the plan. In this moment and as seen in our first flight our daughter is traumatized again hearing that “United Airlines” is taking her away from her mother. “United Airlines” then continues to put the burden on the passengers to get on the plane and figure out there seats. “United Airlines” flight attendance then use Federal Law to shut you up and tell you to take the mixed up seats in which the clerks gave you. “United Airlines” also ensures that no service is given to families as clerks check in with flight attendants and point out the families mentioning to them that they are being problems and do not require service. “United Airlines” again on our return flight gave us seats in which were not what we paid per our upgrade and also again had us on a plane not suited for babies. No baby changing areas are supplied and the flight attendants on this flight said “…there is nothing we can do; you figure out how to change them and we will tell you if you can do it or not…” Once all is said and done and you get your family home traumatized from traveling with “United Airlines” you feel it is necessary to contact them and discuss the issues as reasonable adults. Well, “United Airlines” refuses to speak with customers. “United Airlines” staff and supervisors state to you that the company “United Airlines” has “….elected to only communicate via email with customers on their website…”….”…we do not speak with customer over the phone…” Wow, fraud, lies, traumatizing families, bringing tears to little children, putting babies in harm’s way and against the same rules they steal your money with. “United Airlines” is the company that puts share holders first and customers a dead last.

Poor location for hotel lobby
HAROLD K.
Apr 30 2012
I think having the lobby on the second level is a poor location. While there is good escalator access, there is limited elevator availability and no signage to locate the elevator(only one). As a result those who prefer to take their luggage with them especially on check must navigate the escalators. My wife struggled with luggage at the bottom and subsequently fell at the bottom and luckily does not appear to have a serious injury. We only found the elevator on the last day after checking out and handing our luggage to the bellmen. Even a bellman commented on the poor location of the front desk.

Things were going well until the staff went on strike.

We were having a really good stay at the Hyatt until the housekeeping and restaurant staff went on strike. We were awoken at five am halfway through our week to picketers shouting on megaphones. The noise was constant throughout the rest of our stay becoming louder each day from five am until midnight each night. It echoed through our room even with the balcony door closed. We would have loved to have an open door in Oahu on Waikiki Beach! The food was fair, but twice my our food was incorrect. One night we got an item that wasn't even on the menu, two days later we got the wrong item.

Apr 25 2011
My husband and I generally thought our overall experience on our trip was good. There were about three times the maid service did not show up until after 3:00 PM, which we were fairly disappointed about since we were gone all morning. We had to call housekeeping a couple time to have them tidy the room. The food on the menu's did not seem appetizing enough for us to stay at the hotel to order food in the restaurnat or room service. Although, from our understanding the hotel is re-vamping the restaurants. There was construction going on at the pool, therefore we heard a little noise during our afternoons at the facility. However, overall the staff was very friendly. We were quite suprized there was a gift for us since we were celebrating. The hotel gave us a free bottle of champaign, flower lei greetings and a free picture frame. We thought this was very nice. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends in the future. Great location for the hotel.

Perfect location across from Waikiki
MagaracSingh, Canberra, Australia

A beautiful open hotel with quite a few stores throughout it. The buffet breakfasts were divine, but beware of the birds swooping in one unattended food. Our room was recently renovated and was clean and fresh with a great view over the beach and down the strip. The bus stop to catch the Waikiki Trolley to Ala Moana shopping centre is across the road on the beach and comes every 15 mins. The main thing I loved about this hotel is they give each guest a reusable water bottle which can be filled at ice and water stations on each floor, and we drank a lot of water!

We absolutely loved the location of the Hyatt Regency. How could you not love being directly across the street from Waikiki beach. This made morning hops to the beach a breeze!! For 10 days we simply took our elevator down to the main floor and walked about 30 seconds to the beach to enjoy the sun and surf. The hotel has been nicely updated and offers some great amenities. The pool is tiny however the ocean about 30 yards away offers much more space to enjoy. Will be back soon!! 5/5 🌶

Time for a facelift!

Dated and in disrepair. Understaffed and unable to handle customer requests. Food service was marginal with language challenged servers. Most storefronts empty in hotel, lack of baggage service, and elevators stuck between floors on one occasion.

Choose this Hotel if you're looking for something beautiful, very close to the beach, and a very courteous staff. If you're a smoker they do have some rooms that allow smoking on the Lanai. (Balcony)..Most all the Tour buses stop right outside and is very convenient. The simple amenities are all provided. There are ice machines, coffee makers, and even "washlet" toilets. It is just across the street to the beach. I can't imagine any Hotel being closer. I would chose this Hotel anytime.

THE ONLY REVIEW YOU NEED TO LOOK AT ABOUT THIS HOTEL'
Bertram C, Chicago, Illinois, United States
Sun Oct 15 06:55:53 EDT 2017
I was here for the first time and location is perfect' Right on the beach you can walk across the street to the Ocean.Plenty of places to eat along the street at the hotel and the zoo is walking distance away.The check in and out is on the second floor not main floor.The customer service i received at desk was great' But some employees had a hard time understanding what i needed maybe they were new.The room i had was a city view i got a upgrade to a Ocean view.which was fantastic.The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.also on some days there is a market down stairs in the lobby and you can buy arts and fresh food from vendors.Along the street by hotel there are plenty gift shops and food shops Now the pool at this hotel was okay not real big but they have a jacuzzi and a bar for drinks.The gym has good stuff to use treadmills and Precor machines.Also if you are going to rent a car they have a rental office at hotel which is always busy.Be ready to pay a $35.00 a night resort fee. which they charge to your credit card.Also if you park a car valet it is $45.00 with in and out included.But if you self park it is$35.00 a day.The elevator situation they are doing some work on the elevators and they take awhile depends on the time of day.But they do have the service elevators ready for you also.I spoke with the manager whom has been with the company 17 years and she was very polite and comforting to the needs to the hotel.(Kelley)I believe was her name.So i suggest that this is the best hotel for you if you are looking for a close walk to the beach and right in the middle of the best area.This hotel is also close to the Airport and beware of the people on the street in front of the hotel selling trips and excursions they can be annoying.At night if you go out along the street it is some what like ''Vegas' With performers on the street.
