Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Waikiki Beach Honolulu
We had a great stay!!!
We took a last minute trip to Hawaii for some needed R&R. We obtained a great 5 day package from AAA in Oakland between June 9 to the 14th. We never stayed at the Radisson before but it exceeded our expectations. The decor is understated "tropical". The room is predominately light beige wall paper and light wood furnishings. The spreads are a tasteful beige and dark green with a quilt-like feel. It is quite restful since most Hawaiian decor is bright. There's a mini-fridge but no microwave. The room was good sized and quite adequate. The bathrooms were clean and well-maintained. The towels were not the fluffiest but adequate in texture. The shampoo and conditioner are good for hair exposed to sun, sea and sand. Maid service was unobtrusive and above average. We had a mountain view which means we were on the 32nd floor facing the mountain, residential area, and the canal. We could see the people practicing their rowing each day below on the canal. We could still hear the traffic with the sliding glass door open but that's the same for any urban area. The location is great. It is one block from the beach. There is a bus stop on the Kuhio entrance where the public buses and other shuttles stop regularly. It was convenient to everything in Waikiki by foot and to the rest of Honolulu by public transport. We rented a car for two days to go to the more remote parts of the island and we amazingly could find street parking within a few blocks from the hotel. Self-parking is $9 in the hotel. The breakfast buffet was fine, offering more American food than Japanese selections. The sunset dinner was a good deal at $9.99. I liked the meals better than Cheeseburgers in Paradise. I would come back. It's clean, convenient, comfortable and fairly priced.
We stayed there for a week back in May 2003. We had a room with a ocean room... The view was wonderful... It was nice to see how beautiful the view was each morning and evening. The hotel is in a great location. You never have to go to far for anything. We had the breakfast buffet every morrning, and it did get kind of boring, having the same thing everyday, but it was free, so cant complain to much.. Overall it is a great hotel, and friendly staff
Good location - wonderful view
Kuhio street at Diamond Head end. 30 level hotel, rooms done in that tropical floral design they seem to love (chinz). Rooms good size but not huge - come with safe, en suite, fridge and wet area (sink), cable tv and balcony. Lobby area large with a shop selling drinks/ snacks, film etc and souvenirs/ tropical clothing. Lobby down in a wood pannelled tropical feels (wicker, flowers etc) with bar off on one side looking onto a small garden that is lit up at night with flame lanterns. Resturant also looks onto garden and is your usually hotel "international" cuisine although serving a good dinner buffet. Pool area is large but nothing special and could do with more tropical planting (a bit concrety). A hotel parking garage is attached for you that have hire cars but access to all levels is a bit steep at times. Get a room at the front of the hotel as although one block back the only building in front of it is a church no more than 2 or 3 levels high so most rooms at the front have great views of the ocean - great as the sun sets (other hotels in the street have other multi level buildings in front of them). Good packages can usually be had via travel companies with most offer some sort of 6 nights for the price of 5 deal. Recommend this hotel to anyone beit if decor is a little dated.
A first rate hotel
We stayed there for 2 weeks in May and this hotel is a terrific bargain! The staff was first rate and extremely helpful. I upgraded to an ocean view room and it was well worth the small extra charge, we spent each evening watching the sun set on our lanai. The hotel is a block away from the beach but that block saves a lot of money and also means there is a quiet haven to escape to. I will definately stay there again.
We stayed at the Radisson Waikiki Prince Kuhio the first week of May. Absolutely fabulous hotel. We had an ocean front view (beautiful). The hotel is extremely clean and at the quiet part of Waikiki. The rooms are a comfortable size. The hotel has a beautiful garden that you can over look while enjoying your meal. Since we had ocean front we received the cont'l breakfast every morning. The breakfasts are delicious. They have two stores in the Lobby for gifts or quick snacks. The coffee shop is downstairs. The international market place is only blocks away. The service at the hotel was outstanding and everyone was friendly. They have travel agents in the lobby that can help you with activities that you would like to do. We booked Pearl Harbor, a Dinner Cruise , Circle Island Tour of the Big Island (wouldn't do again its to long 11hrs on a bus. I would do the shorter trip just to the volcano Park thats 6hrs), Paradise Cove(dinner is o.k. the show is awesome) and Atlantis sub. Would definately stay there again!
I'd stay at the Radisson again!
Stayed here twice b/c it's very clean! - one year on the 34th w/ocean view and just recently, on the 35th mountain view but nothing beats waking up to the beautiful sigth of the ocean so we quickly paid extra to move into an available ocean view room on the 36th floor which also meant complimentary continental breakfast every morning - a real treat of fresh coffee, pastries, cereal and loads of pineapple and papaya slices to get you geared up for hitting the beaches. At Radisson, you are near everything and yet can't help feel tucked away - away from the heavier tourist foot traffic.
Excellent accommodation one line back from the beach
We stayed at this hotel for the millenium week and the facilities were very good and we loved being away from the very centre where our friends were staying but being able to enjoy the walk along the beach in just a few minutes. I would stay there again.
Friendly service and GREAT food!
We have stayed here five times in the last two years. Each time we have had a wonderful experience. The oceanview rooms have a great view. The breakfast with room is the best deal.
A Great Place to Stay
I would highly recommend this hotel if you don't need to be right on the beach. The price is less expensive then most hotels on the beach and it is only a short walk to the beach (1 block). The hotel staff was extremely friendly and the accomadations were clean and well kept. Our room had a balcony with a great view of the ocean. Don't miss out on the breakfast buffet the hotel offers. It is wonderful. Lots of fresh fruits. You won't be disappointed to stay here!!!!
Radisson Waikiki a good bargain
I have stayed at this hotel twice, once in 1990 and again in June, 2002. The hotel has been refurbished and enlarged in the lobby area since my first visit. I find this hotel convenient to the beach,shopping and other activities. The staff is very helpful. There is valet parking and a garage. The activities desk can make all sorts of arrangements for tours. I recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a good rate, clean rooms, many services and convenience to the beach. The 10th floor has a pool and there is a health club too. The lobby has a bar and plenty of seating for people watching. There is a small shop with food and drinks on premise as well as a gift shop. Enjoy.

We made it!
This is a trip we started planning for only 3 months ago. We decided to revisit Hawaii for my 70th birthday. We were there 36 years ago when we were living in Calgary, Canada and wanted a holiday to escape the cold.
This time we asked Warren and Wendy Sparks to join us. We were friends when we lived in Calgary. They have two …
Well it is time to leave Hawaii and continue on with our holiday. It is also time to farewell Tony, Kellie, Christian and Morgan. They are staying at Hawaii for a couple more days.
Maz and I booked out of the hotel at lunchtime and were picked up to leave for the airport shortly after that. It was a little stressful packing, as the US …
First day of the holiday. What a long day!!!!!
Left Sydney at 7:45pm and landed here in Honolulu at 09:25am.
We didn't get too much sleep on the plane, far too much excitement
Checked into the Motel and headed straight for a feed - not a pizza, I
am still tracking that one down - but we descended upon the local …
As a bit of necessary preparation for my upcoming junket to the land of my ancestors (Europe, sillies, not Northern California), I've finally splurged and bought an extension to my creative eye that actually produces photos worthy to view. My previous cameras, a Canon Powershot SD 1100 (8.0 megapixels), and more recently, my iPhone 4, were satisfactory for capturing moments and memories I guess, ...
... mopeds and visit University of Hawaii at Manoa today
(Wednesday). The campus is supposed to be beautiful and there are some
Environmental Science programs worth checking out while we are here on
the island. Our flight leaves tonight back to Seattle where we will
spend the rest of the weekend. It has really been a dream staying here
this week and living the island life in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
