    This is my favorite hotel in the world. The private beach area on Wakiki is a huge draw and benefit. I love having an afternoon drink by the beach. Its great to watch the sunrise and set at the restaurant. The hotel remain calm despite all the chaos outside.

    This is the most prettiest hotel on the island of O'ahu I thought. Not to mention the color itself is already pretty. (in Pink) The entrance alone will take your breath away. With displays of fresh locally and exotic flowers all around the hotel.

    Having an afternoon tea here was memorable for me. It's like, I am back in England allover again.

    Classy upscale hotel. The downside is that the hotel beachfront is adjoining another upscale hotel, the Sheraton Moana-both are in Waikiki. So if you don't like crowds...

    Very clean. Customer service is great! The only bad thing is the kiddy pool is a little further away, but not too bad.

    This is the most romantic beautiful hotel on the island ( in my opinion) I love to sit at the outdoor bar and watch the world go by. The restaurant is
    really gorgeous. Go for something special, walk around a bit it is so lovely.

    Fantastic old but remodeled Hotel right on Waikiki Beach. You must stay in the old section of the Hotel - it has much more charm and character. I suggest one of the Suites. I have stayed their on Business Trips and Family Vacations and the staff are always helpful, smiling and professional. Big Thumbs Up!

    Yes you really do get a chilled pink lemonade when you arrive! every guest gets one! The Royal Hawaiian is number one in style and service if that's what you're looking for in Hawaii. The hotel is one of the oldest on Waikiki Beach and hosts a lot of events everyday. I just walked up to the concierge and they gave me all the details about evenings shows, performances and lots more. It's exciting to stay in such a historically rich hotel with 5-star amenities surrounded by beautiful grounds, architecture and people.

    The Royal Hawaiian is one of the oldest hotels in Waikiki, and this hotel just gets better with age. Although it is conveniently located right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, the sprawling grounds ensure peace and tranquility within the actual resort itself. The moment you enter the resort ladies are greeted with a fresh orchid lei and men with a kukui nut necklace, chilled pink lemonade is offered to guests during check in. Once you arrive at your room you will find a fresh loaf of the Royal Hawaiian's signature banana nut bread waiting for you as a small welcome. The rooms have been beautifully restored and you are sure to enjoy a good nights sleep in their plush beds. The spa and swimming pool are quite small, however, guests of the Royal Hawaiian share the stunning ocean view infinity pool and spa with the Sheraton next door. The onsite Surf Lanai is an excellent option for a casual breakfast or lunch, the Mai Tai Bar offers coctails and pupus, and Azure is a wonderful dining experience not to be missed. The staff at the Royal Hawaiian are incredibly friendly and gracious, they made our stay at this wonderful hotel absolutely unforgettable.
