One of the only all-suites hotels in Waikiki, located on Beachwalk. Only a block from the Ft. DeRussy beach, which tends to be a bit less crowded than the Kapiolani end of Waikiki. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. We were fortunate to get a Makai-view room, which made the living room area seem even bigger and brighter with the extra windows. The pool area is very nice, with a spa (hot!) and a kiddie pool area. There's a complimentary breakfast every day that is very good, with quite a few choices, including fresh fruit. There's a complimentary "manager's reception" with drinks and snacks (pretzels and chips) in the evening as well. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I had a complicated booking, partially on points, partially paid in advance, and partially on a credit card (don't ask), and when we checked in, they consolidated it all together into a single contiguous stay without hassle. We also got good tips about local activities from the concierge. There's no WiFi in the rooms, but there is wired access that worked well. There's WiFi in the lobby and the pool area, though we found it a bit spotty. You should be surfing, not web surfing anyway! Below the hotel is the "Beachwalk" promenade that is really on Lewers street. Lots of good restaurant choices, and many nice stores and boutiques. I would certainly go back, and will be recommending this to my friends.
