Pros: History and location
Cons: Elevators in tower section.
Enjoyed the Royal Hawaiian for its 1920s architecture and prime location. Found the food menus at the Mai Tai bar and the Azure to be somewhat limited. Prices were high but that is the cost of the prime real estate. The sister Sheratons on either side of the RH had better menus. Room was nice but wear and tear is showing, especially the Tower elevators. The main hotel lobby and common areas of the original buildings are very well kept. Staff was very nice.

Beautiful hotel on the beach

The Royal Hawaiian is special in that it is set up so that you feel like you are far removed from the busy Waikiki shopping areas, but you are actually close to it all! It's the best of both worlds, old school charm and service, lovely grounds and a stones throw from the action in Waikiki. I would stay here again, no hesitation.

Luxurious holiday right on the beach.

The resort itself was absolutely beautiful, the staff were so friendly and helpful with any questions we had. The location was absolutely perfect too, the beach was gorgeous and all the shops/restaurants we wanted to visit were within 10 minutes walk! I would absolutely go back there.

nice location but the hotel is too old..

The staff of the hotel is nice, but not effient, especially from the phone call, it takes more than ten minutes to reach the front desk and in-room dining! So frustrated!

Another Glorious stay at the Royal Hawaiian

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: Everything. Really!
Cons: Later hours at the pool and new umbrellas at the Mai Tai bar.
Location: Right on the beach. The view is perfection. And the shopping! The best location for shopping in Honolulu!!
From the time you step foot into the hotel until the minute you leave, every detail if perfection. I stayed in February of this year and couldn't wait to come back. It is the perfect Hawaiian experience.

Everything has additional charges. Daily resort fee and if you want to rent chairs on the beach they're not included in the resort fee unfortunately.
