Nice location, close to beach.

Posted Nov 19, 2014
Pros: Service is great, breakfast good. Beach chairs, mats, towels are also provided. valet for car was excellent!!
Cons: Housekeeping staff, had to tell them to vacuum n they did not replace used glasses unless requested. Please fix the loud air conditioning.
Location: Beach is very close. Very close to shopping, restaurants. We came to visit family.
The only reason I did not rate this hotel higher is that there is no closet space. We cannot praise the staff high enough, they went all out. Housekeeping staff are the only ones who need a nudge. We had a minor problem but the manager more than made up for it. Very convenient location. We stayed for a week.

Central location

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Hotel was centrally located, two minute walk to the Main Street (Kalakaua avenue). We stayed in a junior suite & the king bed was very comfortable. The room was spacious and facilities sufficient for people like us who spent most of our time outside the room.the room had wifi which was great, breakfast was average to say the least but other than that, a great stay and would definately come back to the VIVE.

Basic Hotel

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Pros: Clean and Friendly
Cons: Offer more variety at breakfast.
Location: Waikiki Beach, shopping
This is a nice basic hotel that is two blocks from Waikiki Beach. When visiting Hawaii, we weren't planning on spending a lot of time in the room. It's a good thing, because the rooms were on the smaller side. If you plan on spending most of your vacation at the hotel, this is not the place for you. However, they were clean and the beds were comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the free Wi-fi and breakfasts, but wish the food had more selection. Valet parking was also wonderful, but we were lucky enough to have rented a smaller car. The ceilings in the parking garage were low and had we rented a bigger vehicle, it would not have fit. They also hand out a newsletter telling about all the local and fun events coming up on the island, which was very helpful. Overall, a good place to lay your head for the night.

Amazing service!

Posted Nov 10, 2014
The most welcoming, friendly & professional staff! The hotel lobby is so beautifully decorated and smells amazing. Always tea, coffee & cold lemon water available for free in the lobby. Breakfast is basic (toast, croissants, muffins & fruit) but delicious and was included with the room. Close to everything and only a 3 minute walk down to the beach. The rooms are all refurbished so lovely and modern (which is rare in Hawaii as most hotels are dated). I'm a travel agent and wouldn't hesitate in recommending clients to stay here!

Close to Waikiki Beach

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: As noted above.
Location: 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach. Close to the zoo. Great walks every morning around the park and the zoo. Close to shops and good restaurants. Didn't need
Great breakfast. Friendly staff. Free use of boogie boards, beach mats and beach chairs. No resort fees. On a quieter street than the main drag along Waikiki Beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel in prime beach location at reasonable rate

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Beach location.
Cons: Breakfast seating and selection should be expanded.
Location: Waikiki Beach is main attraction. Shopping nearby.
Clean room. Mini fridge and high speed WiFi furnished in room. Microwave and convection ovens available for community use in lobby. Breakfast buffet selection and seating extremely limited but fresh fruit provided was great. No fitness room. East walking distance to beach and shopping. Wide screen high def. with wide array of channels provided. Reasonably quiet. Front desk cooperative and often helpful. Concierge desk sl. passive aggressive & condescending so I did not use much.
