      Historical Traveler Reviews Waikiki Parc Hotel Honolulu

      Nice stay

      from

      Stayed here for 5 nights in early May, 2003. The hotel is wonderful, it is a quiet retreat from all the hustle amd bustle of Waikiki. It is not a resort hotel so there is no bar or entertainment which adds to the sense of calm. The room we had overlooked a neighbouring hotel, there was a constant drone of air conditioning units during the night. I live in a quiet rural area so I am noise sensitive in any city I visit. The room was clean, well serviced, the bed was comfortable ~ no complaints at all.The free buffet breakfast was fantastic, service was great and the staff friendly.

      Classy value

      from

      This was our tenth visit to the islands but our first stay at the Parc,owned by the same people who run the superb Halekulani opposite. It is not a luxury hotel -but nor are its prices. We had the package with car,free parking and beakfast and this offers exceptional value for money in heavily overpriced Hawaii. It is right in the middle of all the action in town, one block from the beach and the better rooms have good ocean views.The rooms are good size by European standards but on the small side for the US.But everything you need is there, neatly tucked away somewhere.The staff are helpful,the whole place is well kept and clean and the buffet restaurant is quite simply by far the best-and the best value- in Honululu and well patronised by knowledgeable locals.We will definitely be back!

      Second visit

      from

      second time i've stayed here (first in 92). the rooms are small, but the staff makes up for it. very friendly, nice people. breakfast buffet isn't worth it - it's cold and has the same food almost every day

      Not what I expected!

      from

      Checked in on February 15 - 17th - very small, not like the website. I guess it was clean but seemed used. I realize that it is a hotel but it didn't have that new feeling to it. It seemed like someone's apartment that hasn't been updated. I did stay at Maui's Fairmont Kea Lani before this stay so it's hard to compare the too. Like night and day! They failed to tell me that, Valet was a $2.00 a day charge. I like to be told ahead of time about these things. $4.00 didn't kill me. The staff was very nice and friendly but I don't see me staying there again. We had a deluxe ocean view and it was nice.

      A few things to note ...

      from

      Although not on the beach, the view from the top floor of this hotel is quite good. We were in a deluxe suite which was smaller than the average, but we were OK with that since we had been forewarned. My only concern was that the majority of the rooms in the hotel, including the oceanview ones on the top floor, are smoking-allowed. We didn't want to give up our oceanview, so we tried to use room deodorizer to try to mask the smell; it didn't work. Non-smokers with serious allergies may wish to ask about this in advance when making your booking.

      Horrible experience

      from

      The room design (smallness/cramped), view (inability to view ocean with any privacy whatsoever due to poor space planning and wall mirror placement) and certain front desk personnel combined to make this an extremely disappointing stay, albeit for only one night. The gulf between website portrayal and reality was enormous.

      On the plus side, I found the majority of the hotel staff (parking, restaurant) to be very congenial and friendly. I did not require their help but expect they would have been professional and capable. The one morning breakfast I had was great, and as elaborate as billed.

      The worst part was my experience with the front desk. They put an erroneous hold on my credit card which seriously jeopardized my ability to stay anywhere on the island. It created a lot of needless distress and worry over whether my credit card would be effective at the hotel I ended up staying at, and I spent far too much of my first 3 days of vacation on the phone attempting to work this out. Upon check in, I informed the front desk that I would only stay one night (in order to honor my reservation agreement). Then several staff memebers assurem they would call my credit card company (who was waiting for their call) in order to reverse the mistake, but they never did. At the end of the 3rd day on the island, a kindly operator at WP, taking pity on my cracking desperate voice, finally saw the problem through. The time and long-distance cel phone calls this involved was ridiculous. It was a sterling series of examples of poor business dealings on the hotel's part. Incidentally, I had not complained to them about the hotel in any way.

      Not sure what caused them to overcharge and then repeatedly refuse to correct their mistakes but it had some very stressful consequences.

      I hope they get someone to overhaul the rooms, perhaps tear down a wall and make 2 rooms into one- which would be a more hospitable yet still modest size.

      And, oh yes, a little more training for the front desk staff.

      Loved the Parc

      from

      My husband and family have stayed at the Parc at various times and loved the accomadations. You can not beat the price. The staff is lovely and such a quiet hotel in a perfect location.

      A nice hotel with nice amenities, makes your choice easy!

      from

      We had an ocean view room. It was not exceptionally large, but it was a good size. It included a nice balcony with chairs and a small table overlooking the ocean. It was a perfect place to relax when not out enjoying the island.

      The hotel's location is a key benefit. While it's not right on the beach, it is a short walk away. Also a short walk away are most of the major hotels and all of the shopping and restaurants that Waikiki has to offer. It's a great location that gives you all of the benefits of the more expensive hotels at a more reasonable rate.

      The staff is very courteous and helpful. The concierge answered all of our questions and helped arrange activities during our stay.

      If you're looking for a great place with moderate rates, nice clean rooms and a helpful staff, this is it!

      Good Waikiki location

      from

      This is a good moderately priced hotel for travelers who want to be close to Waikiki Beach, but not pay expensive rates. Rooms are small, but the view from oceanfront rooms is great. Some rooms are renovated and others await renovation. Although we stayed in a non-renovated room which was older, it was clean and the view was great Staff is friendly and helpful. Hotel is located at the end of Waikiki beach. We enjoyed the location since it was a bit less hectic at that end of the beach. There is a Starbucks located next door and an ABC Store (convenience store). The beach is right across the street. Since we spent little time in the hotel, it met our needs and fit our budget.

      A bit small for a room in Hawaii

      from

      This hotel was recommended by a friend that lives in Honolulu. It's the sister hotel to Halekulani located across the street with a reasonable price. I think the rooms were small compared to the average in Hawaii. Most places I stayed in Hawaii had lots of space to spread out things and open my suitcase on the floor, but this hotel reminded me a bit of the European hotels. The rooms were nice and clean though. The staffs were all very friendly and helpful.

      I was disappointed with parking. I had difficulty finding a space almost everyday and usually had to circle the lot several times. This was very frustrating. It would have been nice if several lots were kept just for guests to make it easier to come and go.

      If you can get a good deal and plan to stay out most of the time I think it's worth it.

      Day 4: exploring the island of Oahu. We drove East and followed the coastline northwards, first stopping at the home of one of Madge's colleagues, Kevin, an interesting and very nice man, short and with a very large moustache, who heads a tree maintenance company in Hawaii. They prune the trees in city centres and public areas, removing coconuts from the palms before they land on the person walking below, dealing with fallen trees ...

So we played blackjack on our bunks and got chatting to some roomies of ours, we've loosened up to the idea of sharing a room with randomers now... we might have this travelling thing in the bag lol. But it wasn't sad to leave that room and head to the Hilton! We thought we were going for dinner, but Claire and Hazel ...

      They told us we had come out well considering what we'd been through as they dragged us to shore on their boards. We hadn't planned for a massive day of adventure on our final day here in Hawaii but I guess you could say the adventure found us. After losing a day due to me being bed ridden, today we thought we should venture out. We either wanted to go and visit Pearl Harbour or go to this other beach on the west side of the island that's renowned for amazing snorkelling. ...

We were right by the sea wall that stood about three metres above the sea and people were jumping and bombing into the waves. It was very stupid as it was so shallow still and sometimes the wave would disappear and they'd be jumping into like half a metre of water. S my nerves were on edge - would I have to perform an urgent rescue of the spinal type? ...
