Aston Waikiki Beach Tower
Travel Blogs from Honolulu
Arrived at 9am for our first day in hawaii. Apartment is amazing, huge with stunning views of the beach from out front and the mountains out back. Pictures won't do justice but it is the best venue we've ever stayed in. Hawaii is like Bali in that it is a relaxed beach holiday but without the hassles, stink, filth, dirty water and humidity - it is …
Hey friends, long time no see! How are things back on the mainland?! My life has been crazy busy, which is about the best excuse I have for not blogging for the last two weeks.. whoops. Let me fill you in! First and foremost, my kiddos. Well I was right, these kids are pushing me physically and mentally in ways I didn’t know were possible. By physically I mean they literally push me.. and hang on me and hug me. Constantly. I swear I’m part jungle gym these days. And ...
... to take a back, winding, one-lane road through the more undeveloped parts of the island. It took awhile, but the view was worth it a thousand times over. We finally pulled up to the beach and SURPRISE! It started pouring rain. BUT being that it was in our first day out in Hawaii and we are a group of twenty-some overly happy, optimistic college kids, we decided to tough it out and go to the beach anyway. The nearest parking spot was about a ten or fifteen minute walk away but ...
Today at the conference there was only one item in the morning where men and women were separated in the trading of kuleana ( responsibilities and privileges) such that society functions at a continual source of pono (balance and harmony). As a result today was for a Aha Kane ( meeting of men) and Aha Wahine Kuhinapapa (meeting of women). It was designed to experience formal separation of male and female energies. However instead ...
Aloha! So today my shoulder was feeling bit sore so I decided to go sight see some. Just down the road is waimea valley that had a bunch nice botanical gardens and a waterfall. After paying my $15 entry fee I slowly made my way up through the jungle like gardens. Some truly beautiful trees, the colours of the flowers and the greens of the trees were super nice. Arriving at the waterfall I was bit disappointed, just bunch ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aston Waikiki Beach Tower Honolulu
Loved the Beach Tower
We just returned from 8 nights at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower. It was wonderful. The condo accomodations are great for a family. Lots of room and well kept. The location and the view is outstanding. The area for activities, restaurants, shops and the beach is the best. Walking distance to everything. The service from housekeeping, front desk, and parking attendants was great. , the staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We felt very safe at the Beach tower.
The Best Condo and One of the Best Properties in Waikiki
I am very surprised to read some less than perfect reviews of this resort, I am a travel agent and primarily only sell Hawaii as a destination, most the reviews were great for this resort, however I have come across some not so great opinions, and I think that some people are getting this confused with The Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel or even another Aston Resort. I would like any traveler out there to know, this is the best place to stay in Waikiki, Ocean Front Views, very spacious Condo units, beautiful decor, absolutely the best and friendlous staff. Don't hesitate, you will not be disapointed.
I was very nervous after reading some of the reviews of this property.
After a very delayed flight from the east coast (our trip took 24 hrs rather than 12), we arrived at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower at midnight and were immediately greeted with the friendliest and warmest people. The size of the condo, the view of the ocean and the twice a day maid service was perfect! Our travel agent totally mixed up our scheduled trips around Oahu and without the staff at the Beach Tower working overtime to get us a new schedule, our trip would have been a disappointment! The condo is perfectly located on the strip within walking distance of everything. Highly, highly recommend!
This review is way overdue. My family of 5 stayed here in 1996. Our t/a got us a great deal including airfare. This condo was great! We were greeted warmly and our accomodations were superb! My husband, son, and I occupied one bedroom and my parents the second bedroom. One of the best things is that there are two bathrooms so there's privacy and convenience for everyone. The living room was so spacious and it overlooked the beach. Also convenient was the kitchen and the washer/dryer combo. The latter came in really handy since we could clean our clothes as necessary. There was a small lanai also and it was great to sit out there and watch the sunset. The pool is very tiny and may be the only drawback. But with the beach just across the street who cares about a pool? There was turndown service nightly and the housekeeper left shells on our bed-very unique. If we return to Honolulu this is the only place we will stay. Glad to know others feel the same and the quality has not diminished over the years.
The Aston Waikiki Beach Tower is just what the doctor ordered for our 8 day family vacation on Waikiki. It was even bigger than I expected, and better than I can describe. With our two teenagers, it allowed everyone their own space and privacy for grooming, dressing, etc., but also had large spaces for gathering in the living room, dining room, and balcony. Great location. Amazingly helpful staff, very friendly valets.
We flew from California to Honolulu and our relatives from Japan also flew to Honolulu. We had two rooms at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower. One had an Ocean Front view and the other room a partial ocean view. Both rooms were superb! Each room had two bedrooms and two baths. They had a full kitchen and large living room. The balconies had more than enough room to have about 10 people sit out there. The staff was more than helpful. John and Spencer were always pleasant and assisted us with our questions and needs. The same goes for the Concierge, Gregg, who was always willing to go the extra mile. We booked thru the hotel website and received 3 nights with the 4th night free. A good deal for this hotel. It came out to approx. $300 per night. Well worth it if you have quite a few people in a room. I would highly recommend the hotel!
My family and I have just returned from Waikiki after an 8 day/7 night stay at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower Condominium...... not to be confused with the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel or Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel as several of the previous posts have. This is a luxury property; a condo with many of the amenitites of a hotel. Upon our arrival and after a long, 11- hour plane ride, we were greeted cheerfully and checked in within 10 minutes. We were each given a bottle of ice cold water to sip on as we sped through the check-in. We produced our room voucher, listened to a brief explanation of the amenities and were soon on our way to our Premium Oceanfront Condo. (We had booked Deluxe Oceanfront but were upgraded to a Premium unit on the 33 floor with spectacular views of both the beach and Diamond Head) The 2 bedroom /2 bath condo, complete with washer/dryer and full kitchen as well as a lanai that was the entire width of the condo was extremely clean and well maintained. Wooden hangars, down pillows, free daily newspaper, 3 tv's, twice daily maid service including turndown service, concierge services, swimming pool and FREE valet parking were just some of the perks that made us come to love this place! Everyone from the front desk clerks to the bellmen and the parking attendants were friendly and helpful. We were just steps from the beach (beach towels are also available from the front desk so no need to bring your own) and within walking distance to just about everything. We highly recommend this property and would stay there again without reservation!
Great Aston Waikiki Beach Tower
We stayed at this property for 10 days. It has beautiful condo'a. Large balcony (lanai), 2 bedrooms, two bathrooms, 2 televisions, large living area, kitchen, and washer and dryer. Maids were very efficient and polite. Valet parking that was free and courteous. Nice pool, and hot tub. Billards available, great location. All very positive. The only negative, is that it was difficult to find. Its parking garage is across the street from Pacific Beach Hotel, which would have been nice to know. We arrived at night, and few of the streets have signs, or numbers that are visible in the dark. Highly reccomend this property.
Loved the Hotel
The Aston Waikiki Beach Tower in my opinion is one of the best places to stay in Waikiki if you have a family. From the wonderful service of the attendants (Gregg and Russ) to the fantastic views from the spacious lanai's, the hotel was great. The rooms are big and offer the opportunity to eat "at home." My family and I will make an annual trip back to this hotel!
