    Historic Elegance and Aloha

    While much of Waikiki has become crass and carney, the Royal Hawaiian has maintained its historic integrity and refinement. For the most part, it attracts guests who respect that. I have visited the Royal Hawaiian since my childhood growing up in pre-statehood Honolulu, and the Royal Hawaiian is my retreat back to that relaxed gracious period in Waikiki. The hotel staff exudes the old aloha spirit. (unfortunately some of the contracted vendors do not.) The aloha of the hotel staff over-rides any negativity. The Royal Hawaiian is a truly unique experience.

    Some peace and quiet

    My wife and I finally got some rest. This hotel was perfect for some r&r. Starting from the bell desk, front desk, housekeeping, the room, beach services and the bartenders at the Mai tai bar. It all contributed to the best stay we had.

    We felt like royalty

    We loved our stay! The bed was so comfortable with luxurious linens. The ocean view was the best ever, with a perspective of Diamond Head that I have not seen even though I'm a local. The staff pampered us, from our housekeeper Annie, who was so welcoming and warm, often asking if we needed anything, to the front desk where Natalie checked us in and got us ready for our stay. The grounds were beautiful and we loved just being on the property. We were steps from a beautiful and refreshingly uncrowded beach. We will definitely return to a place we will always remember. Thank you for treating us like royalty, Royal Hawaiian !
