    We stayed in the Diamond Head tower. It is an older building and older rooms. Needs some updating and small repairs. Bed was comfortable. Ask for a room above 10th floor to have good water view. We were comfortable. It was fine. Other towers are nicer.

    We stayed in the Ali'i Tower in a garden facing room, and it was awesome! The view from our room was perfect! We were able to see the hotel gardens and pool area as well as the Pacific Ocean! We had never been to Hawaii before, so this hotel was perfect to us. It's the best of both worlds. Waikiki Beach is easily accessible, you can see Diamond Head from the beach, convenience stores and other shopping are on property, and everything is within a short walk. They offer tons of entertainment, and the pools are all maintained really well. The staff were all very helpful and courteous. This hotel may be more expensive than others in Honolulu, but we thought it was well worth it for the ease of access, amenities, and resort feel!

    The only part of the trip that was a little off was the continental breakfast, but they allowed us to add eggs, so it worked out just fine.

    my favorite hotel in all of hawaii! we never had to leave the resort because everything we wanted was right there. there were many restraunts. one of our favorites was the japanese noodle bar. the resort pools were perfect and the water slides were a great touch. the salt water lagoon with hawain fish was very nice. there were paddle boards to rent but we didn't have that chance.

    the beach was the highlight of this resort. we could swim in the shallow which was great. there was a really small coral reef father out in the water that you could swim to. bring your snorkles! we spend a few hours just exploring the reef. the resort had private surfing lessons which we really fun.

    we also went to the luau. the luau was ok. it wasn't on the beach which was the only disappointment. the food was good and there were many activities for kids like face painting and hula lessons.

    the resort grounds were spectacular. there were flamingos, penguins, and macaws. palm trees were everywhere.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort Honolulu

    Hilton Hawaiian is so so

    from

    The Hilton is nice but considering the cost of the room they have a tendency of nickeling and dimeing you to death. Affordable eateries where close by so you were not stuck with the high cost of meals. A cup of tea for $2.95 is a bit much. We stayed in the tapa tower which did give us a view of the ocean. It didn't help that they separated our children by half a floor and was not able to put us together until 3 days into our stay. This was a great inconvience and then on our last morning the bathroom above us clogged and so we were asked to leave our room to open up the wall and remove the clog. The plumbers were very nice but we were still asked to leave the room for a good part of our last day and other than a breakfast on them it really threw off our last day.

    Rainbow Towers

    from

    Loved the hotel and the staff. Had a upper floor room in the Rainbow Tower. We would walk out on our balcony and Diamond Head was right in front of us. The beach was to our right, you could not ask for a nicer view. Hotel is very big and nothing is for free. Be prepared to pay for everthing. I think if they could they would charge you for each piece of TP we used. Worry about the cost when you get home. Spend and be prepared to see beautiful sights and get caught up in Hawaii. You will know what I am talking about when you get there. Best place on earth and cant wait to go back.

    Loved HGVC-Lagoon Tower

    from

    Our family, including children age 6 and 8, spend Thanksgiving and the first week of December at the Hilton Hawaiin Village. As with other HGVC properties we were amazed at the property and the service. The pools were great and the daily activities were fun for the kids. The concierge staff was awesome. They were helpful with site seeing and always had preprinted driving directions. This was the best family vacation we've ever had-our best advice: rent a car and get out of Waikiki. We loved the North Shore, Haleiwa, Hanauma Bay, and shave ice at Matusmoto's General Store.

    Not as good as I expected!

    from

    I expected much much more from this hotel. The grounds were very nice and I really liked how close it was to the beach but that’s about all I liked about it. We thought we booked a room on the ocean, that’s what the person that made the reservation said we would have, but when we got there they gave us a room facing the island in the tower farthest from the beach. We had to argue with them for quite some time to get a room where you could even see the ocean, it was an ok view but I wanted much more, and I expected more for what I paid. When we arrived at the hotel I was very surprised on how nice it looked, but the line for check in was over a half-hour long. Once we got checked in it was quite hard to find the room, the people at the desk steered us the wrong way. When we got to our room we were very disappointed it was a smoking room when we asked for non-smoking, and there was only one king size bed when we asked for two beds. That wasn’t the only problem. The mini fridge was leaking so the carpet was wet and discolored in front of it, the shower curtain had mold on it and the glass had handprints. We were so disappointed with the hotel at this point that we were thinking about going down the beach to a better place. I was able to get over the room and the next morning I went to the pool and I could not find a chair anywhere it was way to crowded, and when I finally got a chair I could not find any place to get a towel. After I figured out what to do I went in the water and it was quite cold. Overall I would say look into a different hotel on Wikiki

    Beautiful Hotel

    from

    This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Location is great, right on the ocean, and only a couple blocks from Waikiki Beach. Staff are extremely curteous and helpful. LOVED our stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

    DiamondHead Tower stay

    from

    Excellent place to stay. No rental car is really needed if you dont want to do your own exploring, you can get a shuttle from the airport, and many shops and malls are in walking distance (parking fee of $11/day at hotel - ouch!). You can book tours right at the village, and will be picked up/dropped off right at the hotel. Many breath taking landscapes within the village which makes for great pictures. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

    From the 1960's till 2000 and so forth

    from

    First stayed at the Hilton in the 1960;s when I worked for American Airlines. It was and still is the best hotel I have ever stayed. The service, atmosphere, are all still first rate. When I returned I can tell you how happy I was to find some changes, but still as great as I had remembered. (thank God) after all the bragging I did about this hotel to my husband.

    Alii Tower is great

    from

    When staying at the Hilton, I would recommend to stay at the Alii Tower. It is the most luxurious tower but not the most expensive (which is strange). It is also right on the beach. The village itself is great. I dont have any negative comments regarding this hotel.

    Hilton Hawaiian Village

    from

    While our stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village was pleasant, we would probably choose another hotel on our next visit. The hotel is located at the westernmost side of the strip but is no less crowded than the beaches in more prime locations. Our oceanfront room upgrade looked out over a parking garage with the beach quite a ways off in the distance. The room was very clean with newer decor but not at all luxurious. The hotel also appeared to cater primarily to families. The food seemed a bit overpriced relative to restaurants in comparable hotels. In fact, we usually found ourselves dining at Dukes in Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach and loved the Mai Tai Bar at the Royal Hawaiian.

    The Royal Hawaiian and the Sheraton certainly offer the most charm of any Waikiki Hotel while the Halekulani seemed a bit sterile. In next tier down, I would choose Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach over the Hilton Hawaiian Village and would consider going even cheaper--all the beaches are public anyway.

    Hilton Hawaiian Village Rainbow Tower

    from

    I had a great time staying at this tower. We had an ocean view room on 24th floor (I think it goes up to 31st floor), and the view was so awesome that I'll never forget. From lanai(balcony) I could see a little bit of city and mountain side, Diamond Head, beach in front of the hotel and mostly beautiful, blue ocean and sky. Just having that view was worth staying there (I thought). My friend, who was with her two year old son, thought the hotel was great because it is really like a village, that has everything inside (even ups), and also there were birds and fish everywhere to entertain her baby. As a result, her son was really well-behaved even in the restaurant (distracted by birds). The room wasn't spacious, but it was comfortable enough to walk around. It was very clean and new that I couldn't really find a sign of "oldest tower in the village". Now one of the things I didn't like about this hotel was that nothing came free on minibar (bottles of water, coffee, tea), and they were so, so, expensive!! I had coffee everyday, but I didn't touch anything else. A tiny, palm size bottle of water was $2.50! I put them away so that 2 year old won't open them up too. As there was a small refridge next to mini bar, we just bought water and milk from a store and kept them there. Another thing I was annoyed a bit was that their water pressure is low. They claim that it's for an environmental cause, and yes I can understand that. However, it would be nice to have that choice on us, in my opinion. Anyway, other than that I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. I recommend this hotel to anybody, especially to family.
