Walk to the Beach
Nice Hotel. Would recommend it Rooms were spacious and clean. About a block to the Waikiki Beach. Really enjoyed our stay. Would stay again here on our next trip to Hawaii. Also, just across from the zoo and close to the aquarium.
Loved our stay!!!!
The staff was so friendly & attentive from the moment we arrived. The hotel has been remodeled & is beautiful. The location is very convenient for tours, shops & the beach. We will certainly be staying here in our next visit.
Never a bad day in Hawaii
We stayed a week at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel. It is in a great location: close to the beach, attractions, and shopping. The gym was clean with well-maintained equipment. The rooms and were great. The Hawaiian Tropics toiletries were a nice touch. The coffee shop and deck kept convenient hours. The best part of the stay was the staff. The staff was extremely accommodating, especially Kawai, the bellhop. He was able to meet our needs and answer our questions. I can't wait to go back.
Spent our first four nights here of honeymoon. Rooms are small but the hotel is out of the busy downtown Wikiki. Very clean, and friendly service. Can't beat the view of Diamond Head! The hotel bar tenders were very friendly and the food was excellent at Deck. Would stay here again 100%!!
An absolutely wonderful stay!
This place hearkens back to the days of vintage Hawaii, as can be seen by the decor. The rooms were comfortable and cleaned regularly. I used the fitness room often; it was spotless and had ample equipment and space. The best part was the staff: They we ALL helpful and very friendly. In particular, two employees, Gerald and Kawai were super helpful. We will be sure to stay at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel again! Thank you for the wonderful accommodations!
