TravelPod Member ReviewsWyndham at Waikiki Beach Walk Honolulu
We arrived in the dark and despite using a GPS, we had trouble finding the parking lot to the Wyndham. That's because it's tucked in behind the hotel off a tiny side street. The Wyndham entrance is also non-descript. The easiest way to identify it is by the pair of folks in color-coordinated shirts standing in front of a podium. I think their official job is to attract attention to the time sharing opportunities at the Wyndham, but luckily for us, they were there to direct us to the valet serviced parking lot. The nightly fee is $35 and really if you stay at the Wyndham, there are no real options because the hotel is smack dab in the middle of a very active area with minimal parking opportunities. For us, that was exactly the draw, its awesome location: close to the beach yet right in the middle of the action.
No complaints about the staff. Everyone we met were very helpful and courteous.
We ended up in a two bedroom unit on the sixth floor facing the street with absolutely no view of the beach. Luckily, the street was lovely and provided lots of fun people watching opportunities. The interior of the unit was spacious and resembled the pictures. We were surprised by the mustiness upon entering the unit. Perhaps it's something to be expected given that we are so close to the ocean. Even with the air conditioning running, the musty smell persisted. It wasn't horrible, just something that we eventually got used to. The unit was a little more tired looking than we had expected. In the pictures, the unit appeared practically brand new, but in reality the furniture was beginning to show its age. Nevertheless, everything in the kitchen functioned very well and it was well stocked with almost everything you would need to cook your own meals. The air conditioning in the master bedroom never quite got going and it always seemed a little warmer in that room. Since we were there for only three nights, we never had the chance to take advantage of the facilities the hotel had to offer. The pool did not appear luxurious, just small and basic. Overall, the hotel suited our needs perfectly as a pied a terre for visiting the sights of Oahu.

Our last day in Hawaii. We decided to go to Downtown Honolulu and see the Royal Palace and statue of King Kamehameha. This was quite interesting. We then tried to find our way to Ward Shopping Centre. As we couldn't find the right bus stop we ended up walking. We thought it was pretty disappointing. We met some Aussie ladies who had been there and evidently we hadn't walked far enough. Tomorrow is a big ...
... we then caught the bus to the Ala Moana Shopping Centre and walked around there until we could walk no more. Theo really wanted to visit the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Bar which was inspired by the 1994 film Forrest Gump, so it was a good opportunity to stop and rest, enjoy a cocktail and a meal. I took a photo of him outside the bar sitting on the park bench looking right at home, wearing Forrest Gump’s shoes. Run, Forrest! ...
seen beaches!? We then went to another place which was the site of the Jurassic
Park waterfall, but turns out you were only allowed as far as this hill a good
2km away from said waterfall. On the drive down to Hilo (where we were staying)

I cannot believe it. Our first full day in Waikiki, and we slept in, just making it to breakfast before the staff started to clear it away. Note to oneself.... No more sleeping in. after breakfast, we walked to the closest bus stop, and like old times, caught the number 8 bus to Ala Moana, one of the largest open air shopping centres ...
... all of the interesting things he said - Sounds like my experience at university, in one ear and out the other! Overall, the tour was pretty good, we got to see so many parts of the island. It's interesting how different the city area is from the rural districts. Surprisingly though, billboards are apparently banned in Hawaii, which seems kind of strange, considering the city itself has everything else but those. The guide called Waikiki the "concrete jungle", I ...
