The size of the Junior Suite with garden view was huge, we had a view overlooking gardens out one window, however the other windows overlooked the roundabout and carpark. Unfortunately we couldn’t get into our room as early as we would have liked so we could put our toddler to sleep, but we were able to use the pool and hospitality room to freshen up. The room didn’t have any menu in it for room service so not sure if the hotel provides it? Upon arrival we got a voucher for the hotel bakery which was really nice. The aircon was really loud and blew over the bed. Car parking is $40 which is super expensive in my eyes.

Fantastic location and staff. The pool is not large but that is Hawaiian beach hotels near Waikiki. We tried to do the canoe but the Beach Boys were not that helpful.

Aloha, Thank you for choosing to stay at The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort. We are delighted to hear that the location and staff were great. However, we apologize about the size of the pool. We do have another pool option called Helumoa Playground, which is shared with our sister property Sheraton Waikiki, which is available for guests to experience. We thank you for your comments, and hope to welcome you back again in the future!

The age and heritage. Didn’t like that the First Lady we spoke with on check on was going to give us a roll away rather than the two doubles that we ordered. The second lady we spoke with upgraded us to give us what we had booked and paid for. Much nicer attitude.

I was very excited about staying at a 5 star luxury hotel however was very disappointed when we arrived to learn that the hotel staff were on strike and have been for the last 33 days. We were never told beforehand and its not advised on their website. The temporary staff that are working are very polite however there are many facilites are the hotel that are not available because of the strike.

Aloha Pat, We appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback with us. We are so sorry that your stay with us was less than memorable due to the limited services as a result of the strike, and not being notified in advance of your stay. Your comments have been shared with our team, and we will work to make improvements. We apologize again for the underwhelming experience.

Rooms are spacious, bed comfortable, bathroom good. We had a garden room which was nice and quiet. The overall vibe of the hotel is very nice and staff were very helpful and pleasant. Beach position is very good but was extremely crowded (it was July). Despite paying a daily resort fee they charge an outrageous amount per person per day for a lounge and umbrella. Ditto for car parking. Breakfast was terrible despite being expensive. Dated menu, well below average buffet and with pidgeons running rampant across tables when people left. The hotel pool was tiny. In short the hotel could do a lot better.

Loved everything about it!

The staff and their assistance was tops. I loved the nostalgic ambience of their beautifully period presented and scrupulously clean hotel. Although the room was a bit tight for us, Mum dad and two teenagers...I loved it! Can’t wait to go back!
