INVASIVES and kayaking!!!!

... on Kayaks out to a rocky little island off of Kailua. The problem here is that the invasive vegetation is causing problems for the endangered Shearwater birds. So while the birds are away at sea for months and before they come back to dig out burrows and lay eggs, we work to pull out the weeds and bag the seed heads. No easy task when there are so many invasives and some of them cover you ...

And the environmentalists won't allow anything in the pool now :-( 11:15 and the beginners tango, this is our limit, four different dances to basic level is much more than we planned but all's gone reasonably well, we'll see how our memory goes!

... of a burger though haha but I guess we are in America! After eating we relaxed in the room watching TV until around 8pm. We walked to the Cheesecake Factory at 8pm to pick up a slice of cheesecake each although it was stupidly busy, there was a line of people queuing out if the door to get a table so we just decided to get some to take away. I had a lemon and raspberry cheese cake and jake had a red velvet one which we ate by the beach. They ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Alana Waikiki Hotel Honolulu

    Nice Hotel!!

    from

    We recently spent two nights at the Double Tree Alana near Waikiki Beach. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We were greeted with wonderful Chocolate Chip cookies!! The "double" rooms are two Queen sized beds!! The only parking is valet at $12 a day which can be a drawback. We walked almost everywhere in that vicinity ... to the mall, to Waikiki Beach, to the International Market. It was far enough away to be out of the confusion and traffic, but close enough to get to all of those things on foot. Both mornings we walked about 1.5 blocks to the Wailana Coffee House (open 24 hours) which had the best pancakes ever!!! We would definitely consider the Double Tree again!

    Nice rooms, distant views

    from

    We stayed here on our first visit to Waikiki, and didn't really have a good idea of the distances. This hotel is pretty far from any of the usual Waikiki spots, with a lot of busy traffic around and several main streets to cross. The room was very well-finished and furnished, and very clean, but not especially roomy. The ocean view we paid for was not worth the extra cost. The staff are well-trained and friendly. We would not stay here again, simply because of the location. I'd rather pay a bit more and be near the beach.

    Great value

    from

    Stayed at the Doubletree Alana Hotel for our one nice in Honolulu before heading over to Maui (February 9, 2004). The little time we were there the staff treated us very well. The room was beautiful. Ours came with a view of a Wyland Mural on a building outside. The price was reasonable, especially during the season we traveled. I would definitely stay here again.

    Good hotel, good service, good value

    from

    Stayed 6 nights here and was very pleased. It's not right on the beach, but it is easier to get in and out of than the hotels right on Waikiki, especially if you have a car and are visiting other sites on the island. It doesn't have great views, but the rooms were clean, the desk helpful and the bell staff excellent. Only 3 block from the convention center.

    The real alana

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in Jan.2004. In Australia it would rate as 3 stars. It is quite a way from the beach, so don't expect an ocean view in the real sense. The fitout was dated and a bit grubby.

    The tv reception was poor. The bathtub was more like a hip bath, not suitable for relaxing. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool is very small, like all the ones we saw in Hawaii. They don't charge for 1800 phone calls under 1 hour, so it's great if you use a phone card to phone home. We paid a rate of $119 per night, and feel it was worth it.

    Would I stay there again? probably not.

    Great deal for the money

    from

    We were at the Doubletree in Honolulu from Dec. 31,2003 to Jan. 4, 2004. The staff was outstanding. We had pouring rain for 3 days, and the hotel lent us umbrellas to use the day we went to the Polynesian Cultural Center. The rooms were average size but very clean. The bathroom was small, but the room also had a sink by the refrigerator. We had a great view of the fireworks from our porch on New Year's Eve. For the $70 a night we paid, it was well worth it. We would stay here again. It is on the north end of Waikiki Beach however, so if you want a spot on the beach, this is not it. It is directly across the street from the military park, and within easy walking distance of restaurants, and picking up tours.

    Good Value Here

    from

    We just spent 1 week at the Alana and were extremely pleased.

    Doubletree Alana Hotel Waikiki not what I expected

    from

    We stayed in a city- view suite at the Doubletree Alana September 2 - 8, 2003. The suite layout was awkward... you had to enter the bedroom or bathroom to reach the living area in the back. The living area was small; the sofa bed was filthy. The televisions were small. I killed seven cockroaches( in the bathroom) and requested extermination. The housekeeping staff claimed to have exterminated and cleaned the bathroom, yet all the cockroaches were still on the floor. I had stayed in this hotel in November of 2002 and that experience was much more pleasant. Additionally, I bought a GLASS of wine from the wine bar located in the hotel and it was $19.

    Just the ticket for a quiet Waikiki Stay

    from

    We spent three nights at the Doubletree Alana and found it to be very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and like all Doubletree Hotels we got fresh warm cookies to start our stay.I cashed in some points and stayed there on a "point-stretcher" Hilton Honors reward, the only Hilton hotel on the islands that offers this discounted award. They also automatically upgraded me to a suite as a Hilton Honors Gold VIP. I was surprised to find out this hotel was not always a Doubletree, which on the mainland are pretty much all suite hotels--so check your rate and ask about an upgrade before you get there. The "rooms" are smaller than the suites and are more typical hotel rooms.The property is at the beginning of Waikiki Beach, so you can walk over to the Hilton Resort and check out the beach. Keep walking--you need to take a ten minute walk to the center of Waikiki to see the action--you'll think you're in Miami's South Beach with lots (and lots) of action going on all the time! Don't miss Duke's on the beach!What's nice about this property is that you are ten minutes from everything Waikiki has to offer, while being a quite and restful place to hang out. They have a small outdoor pool on the 3rd level (M) that overlooks the street--it is a good place for the kids to cool off before going to bed at night.Many of the tours and packages don't include a stop at this hotel--but you can get tours for everything on O'ahu from the Hilton's tour desk--about a five minute walk from the Doubletree. We went to the Arizona Memorial that way--booked the trip at the tour desks at the Pan Tour in the Hilton and went right from there.I enjoyed this property and would stay there again because the rooms were comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful and it was quiet and restful. If you're looking for more action and hula-Waikiki excitement, stay closer to the center of Waikiki Beach.Also--O'ahu is full (very full) of Japanese tourists for some reason right now, we saw lots of brides and grooms getting married there and holiday couples and extended families. I was surprised to see how the locals spoke English and Japanese without missing a beat. These tourists are friendly but don't speak English as a rule, so you may have to cut them some slack if they don't know where to line up for things or look lost a lot of the time. I wish I spoke a little Japanese to help them out.

    Great Value, friendly staff, good room

    from

    I was very pleased with this room. I booked it through ..., and received a fantastic rate.

    Upon arrival, we received of course their signature chocolate chip cookies, which were wonderful. Upon inspection of the room, I found it to be a very decent size, and the bathroom was very standard. It was everything I expected it to be. Apart from decor and fanciness and extras, first and foremost I like hotels that look and feel clean - this one definitely looked and felt clean. The staff was very friendly upon check-in and check-out. I would definitely go back.
