Customer Ratings & Reviews
TripAdvisor Traveler Rating4656 reviews
one of a kind place to stay in Waikiki. Its right on the beach and easy access to shops and buses. Beautiful old building with spacious rooms. The staff are amazing. Concierge desk to help with any questions you may have about tours etc. There's a bakery on the premises if you're peckish and dont want to walk to shops. Make sure to head downstairs and look at the mini museum where there are plenty of old photos and collectables from past eras.
OUTSTANDING LOCATION AND HOTEL 10 out 10
This was a perfect choice for our 40th wedding anniversary and we were treated like guest not numbers. The rooms are old but in perfect condition and super comfortable. Sit on the balcony drinking and talking looking into the garden - relaxation at its best. The concierge “Jas” was wonderful and made us feel special. Booked our tours and luau getting us the best position. Location is perfect for shopping and restaurants as well as tours and trolley pickups. Close to Cheese Cake Factory a must to visit. We stayed in the Historic rooms and loved it.
Our entire experience was luxurious. We were impressed by how so many of the employees remembered our names and called us Mr. and Mrs. (name) when they'd see us. We remember Fonda Wong starting us out with a warm welcome and a bottle of bubbly. And then there was Chester (forgot his last name), and he was fabulous as well. We'll go back as soon as we can!
A Week at Waikiki’s Premier Hotel
After many many trips to the Islands, we finally decided to splurge and stay at the Royal Hawaiian. Right on the beach, ocean view from nearly all the rooms, Hawaii’s best Lu’au held twice a week on the lawn next to the beach, complimentary breakfast as well as an evening happy hour event. (Wine, beer & champagne with assorted appetizers). Rooms were large, clean and well-serviced by hotel staff. Had an excellent dinner at the Beachfront restaurant, Azure. First evening enjoyed the Hawaiian songs with the talented hula dancer at the Word Famous Mai Tai Bar. Enjoyed the historical walking tour of the hotel and grounds
