Built in 1927, the iconic Royal Hawaiian Resort, known as the "Pink Palace of the Pacific," ushered in a new era of luxurious resort travel to Hawaii. Located on breathtaking Waikiki Beach, The Royal Hawaiian is an exclusive enclave for elegance and romance. The Royal Hawaiian has refreshed its grandeur with a multimillion-dollar transformation, taking "The Pink Palace" a step beyond traditional luxury resort expectations.

Enjoy private check-in, concierge, and a lounge that fulfills all of your needs, including continental breakfast in the morning as well as drinks and appetizers in the evening.

All rooms and suites in the Mailani Tower come complete with oceanfront views and lanais. You can also enjoy a refreshing dip in the saltwater pool that sits right outside the tower, or relax in one of the available lounge chairs while soaking in the rays of the sun.

Unforgettable epicurean experiences await you at Azure, a world-class seafood restaurant perched along the beach under the canopy of the resort's dramatic Spanish-Moorish architecture. The celebrated Mai Tai Bar sets the stage for romance and elegant relaxation. Mingle with international jetsetters and Hawaiian elites while sipping refreshing cocktails and contemplating the breathtaking panorama of world-famous Waikiki Beach.

If you are using points to stay here...
Ryuji O,

If you are using points to stay here, you are likely to be assigned to a very confined room like a storage and even the room door is narrower than other normal rooms. Check-inn staff gave Hawaii lei flowers to other check-inn guests but not to us! And, you get a voucher to get some banana cakes for free but there is only one staff serving at the bakery and there is a long que, just to get some pastry, may just give out that at the check-inn counter or provided them in the room! Restaurants were awful too. Ocean viewing restaunt, even early dinner time with basically noone inside, they said available table is far end table with no view at all. Famous Mai Tai bar, noone helps unless you work hard to get their attention. The staff are too careless that they escort people who came in later, skipping people patinently waiting. I will never stay here again.

Slightly Disappointed

We stayed in the Mailani Tower for the final few nights of a multi-island vacation. The hotel itself is beautiful and Waikiki Beach is fantastic but still I left feeling underwhelmed. The front desk staff is anything but friendly. It's as if they are doing you a favor by checking you in. And the bathroom on our arrival was not clean. Hair was all over the floor. This just made me feel like the cleanliness in the whole room was lacking. I don't expect this from a hotel of this caliber. The employees in the Mailani lounge were all very nice and the location is great, but I'm not sure if I would stay here again.

Despite a number of reviews on TripAdvisor warning of disappointing facilities, we decided to stay a night at this historic Waikiki hotel as part of our honeymoon--and we were not let down. The folks at the Royal Hawaiian were terrific and accommodating, and we truly appreciated the champagne brought to our room for the occasion. The room was nice, and the grounds were great. The pool is small, but there were plenty of lounge chairs and beach access just beyond the pool. There are many shops and restaurants surrounding the hotel, including a shave ice stand that my fiance hasn't stopped talking about since visiting. In all, this was a terrific stay.

Waikiki is a magical place and the Royal Hawaiian is part of the magic. It is lovingly maintained, the service is what you would expect from a luxury resort, and the beach is one of the best in the world. While only a short walk to busy Kalakaua Avenue, the hotel is quiet and beautiful.

Style and class in every way

My husband and I have just returned from our stay in The Royal Hawaiian. It couldn't have been better, checked in early, bell boy very informative and the room even though older style it was just beautiful and so quiet. I loved the expansive corridors and the amenities were fabulous. Can't wait for a return visit.
