We loved our view of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. Our room was quiet and comfortable (great bed). We walked to restaurants, the park, and shops. Staff were friendly and helpful. We'll be back next year.
Best location for everything Waikiki
Across from the zoo and Waikiki beach. Many great places to eat and shop in walking distance. Good transportation available. Very fun night and day. Very comfortable beds.Coffee shop in the lobby .valet parking or short term zoo parking across the street
Astonishing view of Diamond head
The room has large windows which give a panoramic view of Diamond Head (and a balcony) it is awesome! The decoration/furnitures are nice. The "Deck" is a bar/restaurant at the 3rd flood with a big terace and the staff is really nice. Only inconvenient: light from the coridor (always turn on) is coming in the room at night.
The Queen Kapiolani Hotel was wonderful. It has just been redone so everything was modern and clean. The staff was extremely accommodating. The restaurant bar has a beautiful view, great happy hour, drinks and food. Next time I am in Waikiki I will definitely stay here again!
Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff, but only pricey valet parking, and no recycling nor refillable bath product dispensers :-(( Lots of plastic waste accumulates with individual bottles of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion.
