    It’s ok

    Overpriced for size, second floor cafe was a total waste of time ( it was clear and sunny and no tables available for us cus it might rain and no one to serve coffee to us while we waited for a table) and the first floor cafe was overpriced and ordinary. Hawaii is set around tourist dollars and that’s ok- I just don’t enjoy feeling like I’m being ripped off. Room was clean and staff courteous

    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.

    Awesome find

    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%!!
