Best hotel in Waikiki
Posted Apr 19, 2017
We spent our honeymoon at the Halekulani and it was just fabulous. I've stayed at several other hotels in Waikiki and this by far was the best. The location is fantastic - right in the heart of the shopping strip but also right on the beach. It's more exclusive, slightly private and quieter than even its closest neighbouring hotels, such as the Outrigger and Sheraton, which have a very busy Club-Med vibe.
Although all Hawaiian hotels seem to be child friendly, I was pleasantly surprised not to see children running wild around the grounds.
The hotel staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We received sweet little gifts from the hotel each day too.
We were greeted with champagne and a fruit platter to welcome us on our honeymoon and when we had a slight glitch with the car we hired through the hotel, they refunded us $100 and sent us wine and a generous cheese platter.
The rooms are some of the most modern you'll find in Waikiki. Decent size and always immaculately cleaned.
The breakfast buffet was amazing. So much variety and it wasn't always the same each morning.
The only fault would be that this hotel is very pricey. I was happy to splurge on our accommodation since it was our honeymoon, but otherwise it's very expensive. I suppose you get what you pay for though!
I'd absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone.
