The location being at the end of the strip next to Kapiolani Park is great. Public tennis courts are just down the street, beach volleyball is available most days (bring your own volleyball), great snorkeling and surfing across the street and then the shopping and restaurants are right there. Hotel parking is pricey ($25/day) but free parking on the street can be found nearby. Hotel provides beach towel and chair which is a nice bonus. The rooms are clean but quite small. The hotel lobby is beautiful and an excellent place to relax and hang out.

My wife and I stayed here for a week while vacationing in Oahu. We got a partial ocean view room with kitchenette on the 38th floor facing Waikiki & Diamond Head. The room was the perfect size with plenty of space for everything we had. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean, as well as the window. As mentioned in other responses, the TV was an older tube-style but it worked just fine. The only drawback was that our particular a/c unit had a condensor which was iced/frosted over which I discovered on our first day. I shut it off and let it defrost while were out & about and it worked fine for the rest of the stay. The hotel is within a 10 minute walk to the beach.
I had a rental car for the entire week we were there and paid for the 7 day parking pass when we checked in. The whole process was painless. The $18 daily parking pass is comparable to other big cities. You have to remember that this isn't a Motel 6 in the middle of Nebraska...space is a premium on the island. You can find cheap rental cars though. My rental car was $170 for the week. Factor in the $126 I paid for the parking garage and my total rental car cost was about $300 (without fuel). That's not bad for a week and gave us the freedom to do what we wanted, when we wanted! No cattle-esque tour busses for us!
The room was very quiet. I'm not even sure if we had adjacent neighbors. We were there in late October which is the off-season though. We were happy with this hotel!
