    Cozy place

    My husband and I were celebrating our 20th Anniversary. The hotel rooms looked amazing from the online photos. So misleading. The hotel, the lobby, and dining area was beautiful. Our room was very small and cramp for 2 people. But we mad it work for us, we were NOT goi g to allow anything to ruin our joy. Overall it is a nice cozy hotel to stay

    Excellent Hotel

    When we checked in, we got a beautiful room near the top floor of the hotel with views of Diamond Head. The hotel has recently been renovated and is very well managed and clean. Staff are very helpful, especially Gerald. He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Thanks for making our stay in Honolulu so wonderful!

    Beautiful Remodel and Excellent Customer Service

    We just need to stay one night to catch our flight the next afternoon and we were in awe at this beautiful hotel. The restaurant in the hotel had excellent food with vegan options. The atmosphere was pleasant and fun with colorful accents and retro art in the rooms and throughout the building.

    This place is awesome!

    This hotel is clean, up-to-date, & just cool! Loved the retro decor, the efficiency & the warm staff. The coffee shop in the open-air lobby was a favorite. The location is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants & shops. The Hawaiian Tropic toiletries were the cherry on top!
