Honolulu ce n'est pas Gatineau...

...mais c'est bien les États-Unis...tout d'abord hier soir j'ai voyagé avec une infirmière américaine qui me racontait que la région de la Micronésie est maintenant reconnue comme la région au monde où le taux de diabète est le plus élevé dans la population. Pourquoi? Mauvaise alimentation et peu d'exercice... Même refrain! J'ai aussi appris que le …

After a long day touring the Big Island, it's time for a bit of relaxation. We head over to the Hilton Waikoloa Village, an extensive resort in Waikoloa. The 62 acre resort is so large that they have their own tram system to get from the lobby to the hotel rooms! In addition to the tram, the resort features a salt water lagoon, dolphin pool, and …

Arrived in Honolulu with no problems. Harvey and I were not seated together, but we switched with a woman and did end up next to each other. It worked out well and Harvey was quite accommodating. I think we'll travel together well as he seems so far to be the type that doesn't always have to be having a conversation. I certainly don't want him to …

... your fault lol. BUT this is Camp A and there is no such thing as a not fun day so we made up for it by playing at the center that afternoon. Thursday was hiking Waimea Falls. Waimea Falls is by the North Shore of Oahu. It is a really sacred area with rich history and it is beaaauuuttiiiiful. The kids were super pumped because it was our first real hike of the summer. Again, we had a guide who was really great. She was extremely knowledgable and did a great job keeping the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western the Plaza Hotel Honolulu

    Good Location


    Not the fanciest hotel, but fine for our purposes. While my husband taught classes in the meeting rooms, I explored the Island. With such a central location, I was able to drive about anywhere with the little trouble. The pool was well maintained and the traffic noise a bit loud, but I got used to it. The rooms were a tad "tired", but clean and our view of downtown Honolulu and the mountains (from the 11th floor) was very pretty. The staff was friendly and very helpful. This is not a resort hotel by a long shot and if you're not planning to spend a lot of time in your room, it's not a bad place at all.

    Good airport hotel


    As a stopover hotel this one was fine. We had two nights here, and thanks to this website we asked for a high floor room in the Tower - this was good advice. You could still hear the highway, but didn't stop us sleeping. We also used Brysons, the drive in takeaway round the corner - great food, great breakfast. The staff at the hotel where friendly and helpful about buses etc for our sightseeing. Tried to sit by the pool for half an hour, but the traffic noise was too great. Good airport hotel, but not for a vacation.

    A Hard Bed to Sleep On


    Feb 24, 2004We were absolutely exhausted when we arrived at the Plaza and I think that is the only reason we slept well. The bed was extremely firm, I think the floor may have been softer and there are two freeways that cross right in front of the hotel. I would never stay here if you are vacationing in Oahu. It is a place to sleep if you have an early morning flight to somewhere else, not much more.

    Good for its purpose


    There is no mistake about it, this is an airport hotel, not a tropical resort. You should not stay here if you are vacationing to Hawaii for beaches and pools. However, if you are visiting friends and family, planning on doing some outdoor activities on Oahu, or just spending the night, this is a very useful hotel. It is only a couple blocks from the airport and right off the Nimitz HWY, which gives you easy access to Honolulu, Waikiki, and to all the highways. The free parking is wonderful and is located in a connected covered garage. We had a room in the tower that faced the highway and had a lovely view of the mountains, ocean, and city. The room was in need of minor renovations.

    Not what we expected!


    Being a Gold Club memeber we reserved a king room for 4 days. When we arrived was told that reservation was for room only and not what kind of room. They were going to put us in a room right next to freeway. And in a double bed. No Way! And the neighborhood didn't look the best to be out at night either. After getting upset they did put us in the tower on upper floor but still no king. Was told the military had presidence.

    Perfect everytime!


    My first experience w/ the Plaza Hotel, Honolulu was when I had to make last minute arrangements to attend a funeral. As it turned out, I was extremely pleased and when my husband & I decided on a weekend-getaway, the Plaza Hotel was our choice. Because of annual church conventions, I always have need for "group" reservations , from air fare to hotel, and car; sometimes for a weekend, and sometimes for an entire week.

    Area Info I wish I had before arriving


    I stayed at the Plaza for a bit over a week. The room was clean and

    Great Airport Location


    We always stay at this hotel when we end up stuck at the Honolulu airport on our way to and from our home in Maui. It is very close to the airport, has a free airport shuttle, has nice rooms and a friendly staff. It's not where I'd stay if I were on vacation in Honolulu or if I was staying multiple nights. But for a nice hotel very convenient to the airport it can't be beat.

    Good place to sleep while passing through


    Typical Best Western quality hotel standard, clean rooms, but don't expect a whole lot more. Hotel is located in the airport industrial area so there's absolutely nothing in the immediate vicinity -- good place for someone just passing through Honolulu and not really wanting to partake in the crazyness of Waikiki. For obvious reasons, if you're a tourist expecting resort level treatment, this spot isn't for you.

    Good rate, good business traveler location


    It is a great location for the business traveler who does not want to get caught up in the tourist activities in downtown and doesn't need the beach close by. The shuttle to and from the terminal is a big plus.

    Try to get a room on the upper floors away from the freeway. The room has the necessary amenities, nothing plush. The staff is great and very accomodating. If your work takes you to Honolulu, you can't beat the rates and convenient location.
