Thawing out in Honolulu

After a week in New York City, we took a car service out to JFK to board a 10 hour flight to Honolulu with Hawaiian Airlines. Freezing conditions for our ride out to the airport at 6:00AM.

We've taken quite a few flights during this visit to the USA, and we're starting to think the TSA people do not deserve the reputation they have ( …

Pearl Harbor

While stuck in traffic on our way to Pearl Harbor (Google maps did not take Honolulu traffic into account when it predicted a travel time of 20 minutes) I noticed that we were behind an SUV with Montana license plates. This was even more interesting, because just the day before my husband had commented how there weren't that many out of state …

Anticipation was the only emotion I felt when boarding the plane for my first look at paradise. Myself, my daughter, and my mother climbed into the limo I decided to surprise them with on the morning of our flight and we all just looked at each other and cracked the biggest grins you could ever see in you life. You see, this was our first real …

My husband went to South Korea again this year for work. I didn't join him this time, so he was on his own for the Kimchi Adventures, the sequel. We decided to meet in Oahu for a week's vacation on his way home. We chose Oahu for several reasons:

    Our stay at Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel

    Nice Beachfront hotel at Waikiki. We had the Diamond Head View at our Lanai. They upgraded us to the partial ocean view which was really nice of them since it's our first time in Hawaii. Breakfast buffet in the morning is great. The rooms were kept clean everyday. The staff was polite. The amenities were just right...just what we needed. Parking is expensive since it was Valet. We had to park at another hotel. There's lots of expensive restaurants nearby. Overall our stay at the Aston Waikiki Beach was good.

    This hotel is a great value for the location, room size and view. Pros: continental breakfast is included, beach towels and chairs are available to borrow, 2 good restaurants onsite, in room safe. Cons would be there's no wifi or laundry facilities of any kind. The elevators are a bit odd, as you don't select a floor inside the elevator. Instead you swipe your room key card outside the elevator, enter your floor (shouldn't it already know that since you just swiped the card for your room??) and the display will show you which elevator to use. Even once you get the hang of it, you'll still likely have to help all the newcomers, as everyone just jumps in an open elevator assuming they can get to the lobby, and then they end up trapped on your floor.

    I have mixed feelings about this place. It was priced reasonably, and the rooms were quaint, but needed to be updated for sure. Be careful if you book an ocean view room, make sure they place you on the 12th floor or above or all you'll have a view of is the palm trees, this happened to me--I paid for an Ocean View room and got stuck on the 6th floor with a view of trees and was right over the Tiki Bar which means loud music at night-- I called down and complained and they moved me to the 13th floor. Also, the balconies on the ocean view rooms are DISGUSTING so wear flip flops. The view, if you can get past the dirt and small size of the balconies is stunning. Rooms come with DVD rentals from a machine in lobby so at the end of a long day you can lay down and relax with a movie. I would stay here again, maybe.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel Honolulu

    Avoid the headaches

    from

    Just returned from vacation (5/4 - 5/11). We stayed at the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel. After reading these reviews and calling them, I thought things surely MUST have changed by now!! NOT!!

    The rooms are done

    from

    We enjoyed our stay at the Aston Waikiki Beach hotel very much! We were there May 1st thru May 5th and even though the lobby, elevators and exterior still need work the room renovations were done. Though the rooms are small they are very clean, have a great 50's hawaiian theme, very comfortable new mattresses, refrigerators and in-room safes. The staff is very polite and constantly apologize for the renovation, in fact our room was upgraded to an ocean view for $15 extra a night (well worth it). Even though there is not a restaurant yet in the hotel there are many to choose from, all walking distance. We would go back in a minute so if the renovation is keeping you from choosing this hotel don't let it stop you from one of the best deals on Oahu!

    Reno's "YES" Future is great for this property

    from

    We were well aware that reno's were taking place at this hotel. We chose it because of the price and awesome location , On the beach.. beside the beautiful Kapiolani park.. Great for those early morning jogs. The lobby and pool area are under construction right now but the rooms and hallways are complete. (Pool is still open)The rooms have an updated "Hawaiian" feel about them. Clean, colorful with all the latest in room amenities. Lognet in room movies, Nintendo, Cd "jukebox", and TV internet access with free web surfing and web messaging. Great brand new furnishings, bedding and beds. Loved the pillows. The staff were friendly and helpful. People who whine that the place doesn't have food facilities are within a block of 20 other places to eat and the ABC stores are everywhere. When this place is completed in the fall it will be "Astons shining star" in Waikiki. Can't wait to return when it's done. It's the best location ..for your dollar..with great ocean or diamond head views from every room. A&J Vancouver BC

    THEY AREN'T READY TO ACCOMODATE GUESTS!!!

    from

    On arriving the first thing you're greeted with is empty shops and the lobby would look deserted if it weren't for the parking valets.

    No such thing as a free breakfast....

    from

    We stayed at the Aston Waikiki Beach 2/8-2/16,2002. The hotel is in a bit of a state right now, due to the 30 million dollar renovation in progress. I'm quite curious as to where the money is going.

    Avoid this hotel

    from

    Yes, it's true, they are going through a $30M renovation at the hotel, yes, the hotel is located off the beach but the rooms are in terrible condition. I flew into Oahu on 2/13/02, the carpets were worn out, the walls had holes in them, the bathroom was filthy and dirty. After complaining to the manager on duty, we were upgraded to the " newly" renovated rooms for free. These rooms were just as bad as the rooms in the Makua Tower. I booked this package for 3 couples, based on the "reduced rates" for ongoing renovations. My suggestions are to stay away from the salesman pitch, this hotel is really terrible. We ended up getting a free upgrade to a hotel called Aston Waikiki Banyon, about a block from the beach. We all received a 1 bedroom condiminium, which included a fridge and kitchen and a partial view of the ocean from the room lanai (balcony).

    Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel

    from

    We enjoyed our stay at the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel very much. Even though our original room was in the Mauka Tower (Waikiki's version of the Motel 6 except they don't keep the light on for you!), our upgrade to a partial ocean view room for 20 bucks more a night was well worth the price. The location is great, and the view from your semi-private lanai is outstanding. Ask for a room on the upper floors to get away from the street noise, and enjoy the antics of the guests on their balconies at the Marriot across the street. The staff was great; from the front desk personnel to the maintenance guys and housekeepers. When the renovation is done, this place should be a great place to visit (although probably much more expensive), so enjoy it now while prices are reasonable.

    Our stay next to Waikiki beach was really nice with the close proximity to the water. The room was small but adequate we didn't spend much time there. My finance and I felt uncomfortable going back to the room at night because of the traffic of the clientele at the gay bar located on the second floor. Other then that it was a economical.

    Satisfied customer!!

    from

    We stayed at the hotel Dec 19-25 and had a wonderful time! The hotel is convenient to shops and restaurants and all the different busses stop right outside the door. The service at the desk was outstanding the day we checked in and the day we checked out, AND anytime we needed something they insisted on bringing it up to the room. The ocean view can't be beat and we hope to stay there again our next trip!!

    Best Value for the price

    from

    This hotel is probably the best you'll find right on the beach with an ocean view. Sure, you are surrounded by the Hyatt, Marriott, etc, but we only paid $480 for a week which included breakfast at Denny's every day!

    Ok, now the downside . . .

    The hallways are in miserable condition. Rugs don't match, walls are stained, and the elevators are QUITE moody. Don't worry, you'll figure out their mystique rather quickly.
