- Ala Moana HotelNov 03, 2013
Stay at the Ala Moana if you’re attending a multi-day event at the convention center across the street or plan to concentrate on shopping at the adjacent 300-store Ala Moana Center, just outside of Waikiki. Local folks from the neighbor islands love to stay here to avoid the chaos of Waikiki, plus the prices are more affordable. The hotel was renovated in the last few years, so the lobby is fairly elegant and the rooms are crisp, clean and contemporary, although smallish. Be sure to book a high floor if you want views. An awesome beach park with placid water is about a block away and you can reach central Waikiki on foot in about 15 minutes. Rumours nightclub has been open for decades and is comfortably hipster free--meaning that those of us who like grooving to music from our respective eras can do it without any embarrassment. The onsite Chinese restaurant is popular with local Chinese families, so I'm guessing it's good. A brand-new restaurant is opening at the end of May 2013, finally filling the all-glass setting at the top of the hotel.

When I was a kid, I wanted so badly to stay in this hotel. Why? Because Ala Moana Center was one of my favorite places to hang out. The hotel, located across the parking lot from the mall, is also home to a nightclub—catering to an older crowd—and a fancy Chinese restaurant that serves some of the island's best (and most expensive) dim sum.
About a year ago, my flight back to San Francisco was cancelled and I was offered a free cab ride to Ala Moana Hotel with a night's stay. Of course, I took it.
The room was clean and modest. The pool area and gym are nice, though not particularly fancy or exceptional. The views of Ala Moana Beach Park, however, are quite beautiful, both from the room and from the pool area. Service was exceptional.
As a hotel, Ala Moana Hotel is good, though not the fanciest you can find on the island. For those looking to adventure in Waikiki, the distance may be a deterrent from staying here, however, the proximity to the mall is quite nice. Within the mall, you'll find a reasonably priced grocery store. Nearby, a bus stop takes you anywhere on the island you need to go.

Ala Moana Hotel is an excellent hotel, right outside of Waikiki, next to Ala Moana Mall, Hawaii Convention Center, and beach park. Staff and service are friendly. There's a few dining options within the hotel: Japanese, Chinese, the usual room service, as well as restaurant and bar options within walking distance at the mall. There's a dance club for those that don't want to travel into Waikiki. Ocean view rooms are great, as you're looking westward towards Magic Island and Ala Moana Beach where you can see one of the best sunsets.

My gal pal and I stayed here through a bundled package we booked through Pleasant Holidays. You can get some really great rates for Ala Moana if you keep your eyes peeled.
Ala Moana is great for convenience---across from Ala Moana Beach, walking distance to Waikiki, and of course--in the heart of the Ala Moana Mall.
Rooms were modern and clean--but small. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable.
As for "Rumours", the hotel club, it can be a little bit of a mixed plate. There are your patrons who are pretty laid back but are countered by the creepers. Yep--Beware of Creepers.
Over all, not a bad option for a hotel in Honolulu.
Ala Moana Hotel's Plantation Cafe is open for breakfast. The Royal Garden Restaurant specializes in Chinese fare and dim sum lunches. YuZu is famous for its fresh udon and healthy Japanese fare. The hotel's new Signature Prime Steak & Seafood restaurant features dining with a panoramic view at the top of the hotel. Rumours nightclub offers musical theme nights such as The Big Chill on Friday nights, with music from the 70s and 80s. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available in guest rooms and public areas. Function rooms include the magnificent Hibiscus Ballroom, along with smaller rooms accommodating a variety of different sized events. All function rooms are conveniently located on the same level. A sundeck surrounds an outdoor splash pool, and a fitness center provides a complete array of exercise equipment, a sauna, and a steam room. Enjoy a relaxing massage in the mini-spa, or in the comfort and privacy of your room. This is a nonsmoking property.
The hotel offers 1,100 guestrooms within the 13-story Kona Tower and the 36-story Waikiki Tower. Waikiki Tower rooms feature furnished balconies with views of Honolulu, the Koolau Mountains or the Pacific Ocean. Rooms are decorated in contemporary fashion with the colors of a calm sea, evoking serenity. Light-toned oak furnishings and stainless-steel appliances offer contemporary ambience. All rooms include mini fridges, coffeemakers, safes, and microwave ovens. Accommodations also include flat-screen televisions, free Wi-Fi and free wired Internet access.
