Just won $50,000 in the lottery and planning my dream vacation to Honolulu, Hawaii. I intend to travel there using Honolulu Internatonal Airport. I'm going to stay at the beautiful and inexpensive Halekulani hotel located right along the beach. With gorgeous views, wonderful food and outstanding customer service I cant go wrong. I intend to view …
We have spent the last few days at the Halekulani and it is the most beautiful spot in Waikiki. We cancelled our trip to Sealife Park so we could just enjoy the surroundings. On Thursday we went to the IHOP to have pancakes and on the way back we stopped to watch a huge display of a Marine Marching band and an Armed Marching Squad ( …
There were a few home bases I needed to cover before solely taking my adventures international and one of them was Hawaii. I met this trip with anticipation and dread. I anticipated the surf, the nature and the history, I dreaded the flock of Americans in their seemingly location specific floral button downs, and the chain restaurants stacked on …
... narrowly were missed being stomped by swimmers. It was soooo cheesy and Bree and I were cracking up through almost the whole thing, and we hadn't even been drinking. The bay was so cool. Bree went snorkeling first and ran through a whole roll of under water film. In the age of digital it feels weird to need to have film developed. Where's my instant gratification? There were a ton of fish and colorful big fish at that. It felt incredibly safe. ...
... previously assured us it’s good to go. It flies regularly and is reliable and (until it breaks) very safe.
With our headsets on and waiting for clearance to take off, the chatter and instructions from air traffic control is really hard to keep a handle on and I’m surprised anyone makes any sense of it.

Historical Traveler Reviews Halekulani Hotel Honolulu
If you are looking for budget travel, do not stay at Halekulani, but if you wish for a five star hotel, this is it.
Absolutely the best!
Best ambiance, best service, just simply the best!What else can I say?
Not What I Expected
The service is excellent, other than that you can have it. Room was small despite the grand price. Just nothing to impressive about this hotel. I have read so many great reviews and realize it's noted as one of the best hotels in the world. We travel to Hawaii several times a year due to family living there, and we will never stay here again.
You'll find better luck at the Kahala Mandarin. The beach even stinks here, we just never got why it has such great reviews.
My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Halekulani in June. The ocean view room was simply breathtaking and the service and the amenities at the hotel were spectacular. What a great place to begin our 2 week anniversary vacation.
One of best hotels on earth
Service is unreal, rooms are very nice, food is unreal, views are spectacular, beach is small, pool is big, House without a key is the best place on earth to be at sunset!!!
Where is the beach?
The Hotel is pretty not an Oasis, the restaurants are great. The newly open spa is a little above average. Is not the usual, gym, steam room sauna and spa. The gym is in another wing, there is no steam room etc.
In other words you can tell the spa was an add on. Beware there is hardly a beach, is a little larger that a sand box and when high ties comes along it wipes the little beach away,until low tie comes. The Hotel is sandwiched between other two hotels (all waikiki is over build).
When you arrive, you immediately sense the tranquil and calming environment. All the hustle and bustle of Waikiki is left behind. You are shown to your room or suite by one of the front desk staff and check in occurs once inside your room. There are always the welcoming touches, the chocolates, bowls of fruit and lovely flower arrangements.
Stayed at this hotel in 1978, in cabin. Stayed again last week for two nights. This hotel is 5-star all the way. Flawless.
Bad experience with reservation dept.
When inquiring the availability of rooms, making reservation and cancelling the reservation, I contacted the reservation dept. by e-mail or by facsimile first.
Nobody responded to me.
Everything started after my having called the dept
(to my surprise, knowing nothing is processed) and strongly requesting to process my request promptly.
We just returned from a wonderful trip in Oahu. We stayed 5 nights at the Halekulani. It was everything that I ever expected and more. We stayed in their prime ocean view room. The view was spectacular. Service was incredible. We will definitely be back. It was expensive but found it to be worth every penny.
