Woke up early, had breakfast and headed off to try and rent a car for a couple of days. Finally found the place and after a wait in line we headed off to the north end of the island. Unfortunately 5 mins into our journey another overseas driver (who was obviously used to driving on the left side as well) side swiped our car and damaged our side …
Woke up early, had our usual yummy brekky before heading off to Hanauma Bay. Another beautiful day. Got a good car park and joined the long line to get into the bay. After paying our entrance fee we had to view a video about the bay and the reserve before heading down the hill. We hired snorkels and flippers for everyone and headed into the water. …

Not too much to say about today - 1) Got up 2) Left LA 3) Arrived in Honolulu 4) Enjoying complimentary Tequila Sunrises by the pool deck as the sun sets over Waikiki Beach. Questions?
Woke up to another beautiful day. Breakfast was included with our stay which was great. They had an omelette station where you filled your bowl with what you wanted in your omelette, give to the chef and he makes it into an omelette for you! Fantastic. There was a selection of Japanese food (a lot of Japanese tourists in Hawaii), some hot food ( …

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Waikiki Beach Walk Honolulu
We just spent 3 nights in this hotel (Feb 22-24) and had a wonderful stay. Having read the negative reports earlier, I was concerned and called the front desk prior to our arrival. I explained I was concerned about the noise reports.The very nice hotel clerk acknowledged there is a lot of construction in the area and that there had been complaints about the noise. She also acknowledged they had had some problems with the key cards for the elevators. I asked if there was any way we could be assigned a room on an upper lever that had minimal noise. She said she'd see what she could do. To my delight, upon arrival we learned we'd been upgraded and had a beautiful corner room on the 11th floor with a good view of the beach from both rooms, and 3 lanais (2 from living area and 1 from bedroom area). We were able to sit outside on a lanai one evening and watch the firework display along the beach. We had absolutely no problems with excessive noise, although I can understand that guests who are assigned to rooms on the lower floors may have different experiences. Although the Trump Tower will block some of the views and no doubt will create additional noise during construction, currently there is nothing happening in that area... just a big hole in the ground.
I'll keep this short: stayed at E.S. Beachwalk February 18 - 23. I was anticipating a lot of construction in the area - it turned out to be very little. The Trump Tower is just a hole in the ground with nothing happening. There was some street work going on, nothing inconvenient, but loud at times. I was in the Aloha Tower on the 15th floor facing east. When out on my lanai, I could see the ocean in the distance and the Beach Walk development below. About 1/3 of the stores were open and the Yardhouse restaurant had just opened. I ate there one night - wouldn't go back - the food was good but the bar area was so loud. Probably a good place for people in their 20's and 30's who want to party. I'm 55, don't drink, and like to be able to hold a conversation without yelling.
My family and I stayed at the new Embassy Suites Waikiki Beach Walk for two-nights during Martin Luther King Junior Weekend as a short weekend trip to Honolulu. This was our fourth trip to Honolulu. The previous three times my family and I stayed at the Hyatt Regency. After much long debate of trying to choose a different hotel to stay at during our 2-night visit to Honolulu, we chose the Embassy Suites due to the fact that this hotel was brand new, an all-suite hotel that included a free breakfast and manager's reception. We took the Roberts airport shuttle to the hotel, which was unable to let us off at the Embassy Suites because of the construction. Therefore, we were dropped off at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach, which is across the street from the Embassy Suites. However, it was difficult to walk to the hotel with all of our luggage in a construction zone. The lobby is drive through. However, when getting dropped off by a shuttle bus it is somewhat inconvenient. When checking in we were given a cup of orange-pineapple juice, which was a very nice touch. There are two towers, but only one is open as the second is still undergoing construction. I felt that this hotel was a somewhat further away than across the street from the beach. There are a quite a few hotels in front of the Embassy Suites blocking the view of the beach. The second tower that is not open yet seems as it is even farther away.
We stayed for a week in early Feb. in a 2 bedroom suite at the Embassy Suites Waikiki Beach Walk. The suite was located in the Hula Tower (Aloha Tower not scheduled to open until later in Feb. according to the Front Desk staff). The suite's master bedroom with king bed was roomy as was the bathroom. The living room was on the smaller side compared to other Embassy Suites properties we've stayed in. The table could only fit 3 chairs around it as the space for the 4th chair was taken up by a pillar. Therefore only 3 people could sit at the table at one time. No big deal if you don't plan to eat in your room (there is no room service) or if your kids don't mind eating at the coffee table.
Embassy Suites Waikiki Beachwalk was not completely open when we checked in on January 13. Only one tower (Hula tower) was open; shops and restaurants in the complex were still in progress. Compared to other Embassy Suites (Maui, San Diego, etc) this one was less appealing. The best part about it was the fact that everything is brand new. The worst part about it was the size; the rooms are scaled way down. The living room and bedroom were crowded with furniture and there are no closets (only an armoir with hangers/shelves inside). Families with children will undoubtedly feel the need for more space, as the "suites" are barely larger than a big hotel room.
I live on the island of Oahu and had seen the Embassy Suites advertise in our local paper.
We stayed here New Year's Eve, but the prices were not much different from other times. We had a 2 bedroom suite on the 20th floor. The room actually was comprised of a 1 bedroom suite and a second adjoining bedroom. Frankly, the space was very small. There were no closets at all. I cannot see how the adjoining bedroom could ever be called a suite; it was really nothing more than a smallish standard hotel room.
Overall the hotel is very pretty. It is located in an urban setting with no grounds to speak of. Also, although there are views of the ocean from the higher floors, it is not directly on the beach, but across the street. The section of beach closest to the hotel is a little rocky at the shore.
