Some hidden charge and wifi was none existing
Didnt know the 24hr parking i paid for ends at the time stamped on the ticket and not when I left the hotel. Had to pay extra on top of the $50. Wifi in the room was off and on and virtually non existing.
Nostalgic stay after over 30 years
I used to stay at the Ala Moana Hotel during my work visits in the 1980s and Honolulu was always one of the favorite destinations aside from London and Amsterdam. I would have never imagined that a large Convention Centre would be built right across and up the street from here which was why I ended up staying here yet again; to attend a conference with my boss. The hotel does not seem to have changed much all these years other than being even more crowded. The rooms look pretty much the same, but with new aqua blue and green tones (carpet, bedding, cushions) added to the wooden furniture to give it a more tropical feel since its refurbishment in 2016. It is strange that I had actually remembered the rooms to be bigger; perceptions of dimensions seem to alter with age and perspective. I did feel though that the decor was rather plain and that more could have been done to make the look and feel more upbeat and classy. I was also a tad disappointed with the bathroom as it seemed still rather old-school and I had some issues with the hot water in the shower. I was thankful that the front desk offered me a courtesy room to use to freshen up after my long flight, since the hotel was running at peak and we could not check in any time before 2 pm. I was offered an ocean view room with a balcony in the Waikiki Tower, similar to the type of room we were allocated under contract with my former company. I always loved the gorgeous views out to the ocean on the right and with the mountains on the back left. Sitting out in the balcony with such amazing views and watching the sunset was a real treat. With the close-to-perfect Hawaiian weather, late evenings out on the balcony in a dream destination was truly a delight for a teen/young adult. On this trip however, we stayed at the Kona Tower, which although had partial views of the ocean, lacked a balcony. The Plantation Cafe where the daily buffet breakfast is served has shrunk from its original size and no longer offers full day dining but is only open for breakfast. The access to it is now from the outside of the hotel lobby. I remembered that we used to get the best ever corned beef hash here which was disappointingly no longer available. But I did still get to enjoy the fragrantly delicious Hawaiian papaya which remains as the most popular offering in the buffet spread. The most interesting discovery here was 'The Signature Prime Steak & Seafood' restaurant on the 36th floor, where the views are spectacular, with excellent food choices. There are also a few nice gift shops on the ground floor and a convenience store along with Starbucks. There is a little shop that sells original Hawaiian-designed and Hawaiian-made shirts and blouses; quite the real deal with a very friendly owner. The hotel is ideally located and conveniently linked by a ‘Skybridge’ on the second floor to the Ala Moana Center, the world’s largest open-air shopping center, through the car park area. It has far more upmarket stores and restaurants than before with the supermarket shifted right to the far end of the mall. There are a slew of restaurants to choose from and daily Hawaiian performances at the Centerstage. The artificially created Magic Island and Lagoon along with Ala Moana Beach Park are a short walk away. This is a good spot to watch surfers with an excellent view of Diamond Head, Kahanamoku Lagoon and Ala Wai Boat Harbor.
Stayed in the 1 bedroom suite, very spacious with a bed and pull out couch. There was a dishwasher in there too! Along with a hot plate, microwave, fridge, and a sink. Also came with a daily breakfast buffet. Great value for the price that we paid.
Clean room, nice view and friendly staff
Very convenient, close to the shopping mall, a lot of food options near by. Breakfast is also good. Room is clean and with some view. No resort fee. Very well worth the price. Internet speed sometimes slow when streaming video. And there was once the front desk hang up our call before we finish all of our questions.
Overnight in Honolulu
Alamoana Hotel is totally awesome, first of all Starbuck's in the hotel lobby and having great staff that provided very hospitable service. The other factor is location, location, location as it is literally connected to the Alamoana Mall with many stores and restaurants just a skywalk away. Walmart, Sam's & Ross were also just a block away. Just a fantastic place to be when in Honolulu.
