"Great Hotel near Beach"
The staff of this hotel is fantastic, friendly, always willing to help with advice & directions, they go over the top helping. Free DVDs were a nice touch for our family, beach chairs and towels always ready. The breakfasts are a little starch heavy, fruit not totally ripe but we suffered thru it rather than pay high breakfast prices. We would be back […] to this hotel in a minute.

"Hidden Gem in Waikiki"
We are so glad we decided to give this hotel a try. Pulling up on the outside, I was skeptical as it looks like a dingy hotel. Walking through the front doors, quickly changed my mind. It is a very well kept, recently updated hotel. The rooms and the service were fantastic! Everything was clean and had a modern feel. I am usually a hotel snob, and this […] one exceeded my expectations! In addition to the great rooms and service, you are right downtown Waikiki, one block from the ocean. Close to restaurants shopping and the zoo, we couldn't have asked for a better location. We received a complimentary continental breakfast, free internet, free movies (new releases included), free beach gear and access to the Marriott gym and pools (located right across the street). We will definitely come back to this hotel when in Waikiki and recommend it for you to try too! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We selected this hotel based on reviews."
The hotel has a great location. Half a block from the beach and half a block from the bus line. It is a easy walk to many restaurants and lots of shopping. The staff is friendly and helpful even to guest who are arriving from 12 hours of travel. My only concern is that the Renew may begin charging an addition $15.00 a day for services we would not use […] (a workout room). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great boutique hotel spot"
Nice, modern style boutique hotel close to everything in Waikiki. We stayed only one night, b/c we were spending time in other areas of Oahu. It was for my girlfriend's bday, and they welcomed us with a bottle of champagne. Nice touch guys! Friendly staff too, so we definitely recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Small but nice"
Nice little hotel and is only a 30 second walk from the beach. The place is nice and quiet. Has breakfast every morning, nice valet service ($25 a day). The facilities can use a little work for the faucet was loose and the showerhead leaked. But they were still usable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wish I could rate it higher"
If I could rate Hotel Renew on friendliness of staff, location and daily breakfast I would give it a 5. So, why is my rating a 1-2? First of all, when we checked in we had to sign an agreement to pay a daily ‘amenity’ charge of $15 plus tax – this is in addition to what we paid for our room months ago through Hotels.com. After our stay I checked the […] website and it mentions all the amenities in a list (such as daily continental breakfast, newspaper, wi-fi, etc.) and below the list it says, “Hotel Renew by Aston guests can also reJUVINATE at two nearby resort swimming pools and a full service fitness center. *Please inquire with guest services for more details.” At the bottom of the page (below some photos) there is the following, “*All rates are subject to a daily amenity fee of $15 plus tax.” So, it turns out that asterisk next to the fitness and pool verbiage is meant for all things on the amenities list – which is very misleading as the assumption would be that 'amenities' are included in the booking price. Add that to the following: • The towel bar fell off in my hands (literally!) • The bath knob fell off in my hands • The room could use some black touch up paint on the banged up shelves an corners • The Attendant at the ‘nearby resort pool’ told me we could not have towels after the Renew front desk said they provide them • The room was one of the few in Waikiki without a lanai – none available for two bedrooms (admittedly my miss but it was a big one).

"Last minute change to a VERY nice place!!"
More than anything (and everything here was really great) the service was above and beyond! I AM staying here again in Nov 2013!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel very close to the beach"
We were looking for a smaller hotel and really enjoyed our stay @ the Hotel Renew by Aston. It's very close to the beach and all the attractions. Everyone is very friendly and helpful! Rooms are small but very clean. Definitely get a room w/ocean view, it's beautiful! There is no pool but it wasn't an issue for us. I wish they didn't have an extra charge […] for fitness, wifi and other basic needs that should be provided since rooms are more expensive. Would advise this hotel to everyone who is looking for a relaxing, non commercial and more private stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
it was so conveniently located, just steps away from the main strip, Kalakaua Ave, and waikiki beach.The room condition was okay but it was way too small... and please be aware for 15 USD flat rate/day/per room for amenity use (Keurig coffee machine, safe, breakfast, wi-fi, beach towels all included). Please say "not necessary" upon check-in, otherwise […] USD 15 will be incurred. Overall, it was nice to stay there! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent sevice but not much else to highlight."
From the doorman to the front desk all employees were great. Small, neat rooms, but the bed was comfortable. Internet was hit or miss and a fridge would have been nice. Beach a few minute walk and an ABC store next door for convenience but also next to some pretty sketchy rooming houses that seemed to have several "users" hanging about day and nigh […] t.

"Small, clean and cozy hotel"
The inside of this hotel has a contemporary design with a cozy feeling. The room is a bit small but it's clean and services is great. Wifi is free and it comes with a large screen TV. It at the end of the Waikiki strip which is nice because are away from the noise and crowds however, still in walking distance from shopping and restaurants. The plus […] is it's only a block from the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and Quiet but............"
Very nice place right in the center of the beach front area. Motorcycle scooter rental business right around the corner. This is not a resort hotel. It has no amenities(pool, weight room, lobby bar, etc). But it is very clean and small with no foot traffic. Couple comments for what it is worth. Firstly if you get a rent a car and you park on property […] it will cost you $25 a day and can only be valet parked. The service to get your car is quick and fast so no issue but that is VERY expensive and was bit disappointing as it really increased the cost to stay and was a bit misleading. This should be included in the room cost. Also, the continental breakfast is Costco Muffins and frozen concentrate juice. I am attempting to not complain but just offer feedback on the stay. The wireless internet is convenient and private per room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel in Waikiki"
We had a great stay at this smaller and much quieter hotel than others in Waikiki. Half a block from the beach and MUCH more relaxing than the larger hotels. Excellent breakfast of fruit, juice, and a variety of breads. The front desk staff were truly outstanding - very helpful in arranging transportation (and getting excellent discounts from rental […] car companies). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable quiet hotel"
Hotel Renew is still in Waikiki but at the far end so it's not so crowded. My room was great with a beautiful view of the ocean from the window and a somewhat obstructed but still nice view of Diamond Head. The room was contemporary and comfortable, the staff friendly and accommodating. I loved the pineapple juice when checking in. The continental breakfast […] was fine (stick to the fruit and coffee). Nice parks for walks or runs close by. I would stay here again and recommend to my friends who like calm and quiet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great hotel!"
My fiance and I stayed at Hotel Renew for a week and a half and would highly recommend it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ate the free continental breakfast every day, which helped to cut down on food costs during our trip. The hotel also offered complimentary items to borrow for the beach, such as beach towels, mats, and boogie boards. […] Because our plane left in the evening on our last day in Hawaii, we also took advantage of another free service offered by Hotel Renew, which allowed us to have an hour of complimentary access to one of their hotel rooms to shower, freshen up, etc. This allowed us to fully enjoy the last day of our trip even after officially checking out of our hotel room. The location was also great - close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, bus stops, and bus pick-ups for various tours. We were lucky to get a room with a balcony (which we loved!), which offered partial views of the beach on one side and mountains on the other. Many rooms in the hotel do not have balconies or beach views, however. Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodations and services offered by Hotel Renew. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best Hotel Experience"
I stayed here for five nights with my boyfriend. Once check in, greeted with friendly staff and wanted to do an upgrade to Oceaview Suite. However, it was sold out. Later that night, I recieved a thank you note and crackers and cheese from the hotel. All complientary. It made my day. I felt this hotel went the extra mile to made my stay pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great cozy hotel next to beach."
Hotel offers free continental breakfast. They supply towels, mats, chairs and boogie boards for the beach. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff is friendly and courteous. Maids are nice and offers toiletries every time we encountered them. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Priced right but had issues"
First the location is safe and close to the beach. The problem with the hotel is that the rooms are small and there is no mini refrigerator. So if you have leftovers you might as well throw them out. There is only a cooler type fridge. There was also a slight smell in the rooms. There are very few amenities on site. No laundry or fitness room. It seemed […] like the staff was minimal so when I called for someone to being my bags down, no one showed and I had a shuttle to catch. Although the price was right, I would not stay here again.

"Great hotel close to the beach!"
I loved staying at Hotel Renew. I was a little worried after reading some reviews, but everything was great. We stayed in a "city view" king room on the 6th floor and it was actually quiet (I do live in an urban environment so maybe this is relative). The hotel is spotless with tasteful modern decor, and the room always smelled really good. It was a […] bit far from the convention center but there is a bus a block away and always easy to get a taxi. I was there for a conference and it was so nice to come back and relax in the cool room after working & playing all day. Here is the thing--it's not a resort so no pool, but the pools at many of the moderately priced hotels are not that great anyway the beach is right there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent little hotel in Waikiki!!"
Extremely friendly and helpful staffs!!! Continental breakfast starts the day bright and right!!! Convenient location for public transportation!!! This is not a fancy hotel, but it provides everything you need for a dream family vacation in Hawaii!Genuine Expedia guest review
"unbelievable 3 stars hotel-you feel like 5 stars"
i was nervous to vacation in a hotel without pool /gym (i know, spoiled brat) but we did not miss it a bit. the ocean is yards away, we could get boards and towels from the hotel. everybody was so helpful and fun and amazing! i have read the reviews complaining about the breakfast not being too rich-but it's complimentary, guys! very good coffee to […] get you going in the morning with some fruit and pastries-that's all we needed . fun crowd, relaxed, laid back, enjoying vacation. my new favorite in Oahu- i will most certainly stay again!

"Close to the beach and shopping."
Very pleasurable experience. The hospitality was great. Looking forward to doing it again next year, possibly for a longer stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean and modern. Not big but across from Waikiki beach with multiple beach fun things to rent. Towels and mats were free. Surfboard was $25 for 3 hours or $50 for whole day. Much better deal than at beach. Close to many things. It is end of Waikiki strip so if you can't walk long distance, may want to rent a car. parking is valet and $25 per day with […] anytime acesses. It is end of strip so if you have kuds, tou and your kids can walk about 5 min and you are at Honolulu zoo! Loved all employees, all nice and caring! House keepers were contacted so if you don't leave your room early they may not get to your room. However, they do have one person on site 24 hours and if you just need clean towels and empty trush can, the front can help you with that right away. No pool but I suggest just go to twin tower Hyatt cause they don't care. Morning time gets super crowded, suggest early bird and get your spot or come down and get your food and bring them to our room. Definitely, going back there cause the rate was good, staff were awesome and easy acess to lots of things! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great people, but expected more for the price"
Our room was dirty when we arrived. They cleaned it when we went to the beach for a few hours, but the overall condition of the facility was lacking. They ran out of breakfast in the morning and I had to find someone to get more. Staff was great, but I expected much more.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic people, service, and accommodations."
My fiancé (now wife) went to Hawai'i to marry. To be honest, we hadn't known much about Hotel Renew before booking; it was recommended by Expedia as a fairly inexpensive hotel in Waikiki. The staff there made our stay very pleasant even to the point of delivery campaign to our room after our wedding. Great hotel, wonderful staff at a great price!Genuine Expedia guest review
The only issue we had was that the Wi-Fi was not working, although our hotel stay was not about using the internet, we were just trying to look up certain things so we can plan our night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel right next to beach"
Had a great time. Was right next to the beach and on the main strip in Waikiki. I would recommend this motel to friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty good but not great"
Hotel Renew tries to go for the W vibe, and it does a decent job, but it doesn't quite go all the way. The room was nice, but it wasn't as spotless as I hoped and some parts of it weren't in perfect condition, which is what I expected. However, the staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating. I can recommend Hotel Renew if you're looking for […] the boutique hotel experience in Waikiki, but if you're expecting real luxury, you should look elsewhere.

"Easy access to beach!"
It's a small boutique hotel that is walking distance to the beach! The hotel has great customer service. My guest and I arrived late in the night, and the staff were extremely courteous and friendly. Unfortunately, they only had valet parking. And since it was late at night and I forgot to do research on alternative parking, I had to pay $25 overnight. […] They also offered complimentary beach chairs and towels, as well as breakfast in the morning. And the great thing about the hotel is that it's walking distance to the shopping area on Kalakaua Ave! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Rooms not cleaned and I'm not picky"
This hotel is in a good location. But: my washcloths have not been replaced, sand on my floor since yesterday, sink not wiped out. Rooms small and dark. Lobby is small, breakfast jammed. Better values are elsewhere!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is old and small but newly refurbished so seems modern and clean. One block from the beach. Staff is EXCELLENT! Extra room towels, nice beach towels, good sized boogie boards and beach chairs loaned for free with no hassle. The front desk popped our popcorn that we bought at the store. Always smiles and helpful. Must have been a 55" tv. A small […] convenient very friendly place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hyped boutique hotel"
The hotel has extremely small rooms and it is overpriced. The staff are very friendly and hotel has a nice location. It has old ac system. I have stayed a lot in boutique hotels and this was probably the most overrated! It appears to be owned by Aston group which has big chain hotel right in front of renew. Parking is only valet as wellGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything worked out great in this hotel except the cleanliness of the room. The floor was not very clean, the bed linens were moist and smelled exactly like hotel linens, and there is much dust in the dryer. Here are the rest pros: the room was great! Great location, ocean-front, very quiet, and very convenient. The kitchen was equipped with everything […] you want, including the garbage disposal and the dishwasher. The freezer makes ice automatically! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location, Nice Place, Staff's the Best!"
Hotel Renew: The staff is great! Hotel is clean and modern. Location is on the east end of Waikiki (close to Diamond Head and the Zoo), which I thought was good for many of the places we wanted to visit. Did I mention how great the staff was? Great place to stay...actually made staying in Honolulu bearable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved This Hotel"
This hotel was awesome. The staff was amazing, the room was clean, the room looked like it does in the pictures, the bed was heaven, the pillows were fluffy and perfect, the bathroom was clean, etc. This is a 3-star hotel, and I think it's because they don't have all the amenities of a 4-star or 5-star hotel, but if it did (i.e. having a pool), it would […] be ranked pretty high. I would stay here again and again when coming back to Waikiki. The location is great, just one block from the beach, and they let you borrow chairs, towels, mats, boogie boards, etc. They greet you at the front desk with cold pineapple juice and a cold lemongrass scented towel (both of which were a surprise, as I've never been greeted at a hotel with either). Overall, had a great stay here, and will come back again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Boutique Hotel with lots of Character!"
The hotel is a great find. We'd stayed on Waikiki several times before (Lotus, Aston, Royal Hawaiian) and we'd say this is a great happy medium to all of those locations. There aren't a lot of room, which is great as it limits the amount of people on the property and keeps it intimate. The overall vibe is younger, hipper and cooler than the surrounding […] hotels. The staff is amazingly helpful and extremely pleasant. Always available for suggestions and looking to make the stay a great one. We booked a premium oceanview room and it was perfect. We had room 806 and we had a great view, balcony and comfortable space to relax in. It was also at the end of the hall which made it extra quiet. The location is great as its easy to hit the park for a run, go across the street to the beach, walk to the rest of Waikiki attractions, and even easier to get on the road to hit the highway (you don't have to hit too much of the Waikiki traffic to make it to the freeway). Overall, its really a great find. Its not ultra-luxurious, but its quiet, intimate, hip, and just a fantastic find for the money. Spring for the oceanview room.

Very friendly staff, clean rooms. Good location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very close to the beach, at a reasonable price, very clean rooms and well lit bathrooms. Coffee and continental breakfast from 7-9.30. Parking is $25 (you can get $15 parking just down the block).Can get a little bit noisy in the mornings with the garbage trucks. I got a room with a city view,small sized room with small bed, just enough for 2 average […] sized adults but good quality toiletries. They provide you with beach chairs,towels,mats etc if required. They also left me with a note for my b'day,very thoughtful and nice gesture indeed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall I had a positive experience in this hotel. The decor is very chic and modern at the same time very quaint and cozy. The staff overall was very helpful especially Daniel. They have complimentary continental breakfast in the morning from 7am until 9:30am. Decided to stay a second night and the woman who helped me quoted me a certain price and […] charged me approximately 50 $ more than she quoted. I didn't think about it at the time, but as I went up to my room the math didn't add up. Upon checkout I brought it to the attention of the front desk staff and Daniel offered to make the adjustment. The room was a little on the small side but overall didn't feel cramped. The bed was a king size with a firmer materss which I prefer and the bedding was clean and comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Renew. The staff was extremely helpful and the location was excellent. This is a small remodeled hotel, but we found it to be just what we needed.

"great staff....too noisy!!"
Great location; excellent staff and a comfortable room. The only problem is the larger hotels loading dock right across the street. Every morning we were woken up at 5:30 to the sound of trucks backing up. Not pleasant on a vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect for couples."
With the modern look, hard surfaces and glass; I wouldn't recommend this hotel for families. For my husband and I, it was perfect and just what we wanted. The room is a little snug but very nice and the location is excellent, walking distance to anything and everything. The staff was amazing and it didn't hurt that they greeted us in their beautiful […] lobby with chilled, lemony washcloths and glasses of fresh pineapple juice when we arrived (after 20 hours in airports and on planes....it was much appreciated).

"Good rm for business person/couple with no extras"
The hotel is well situated one block from the ocean. The most IMPORTANT information is that there is no pool or restaurant. If you want a clean room and not much more -then this is good. "Breakfast is coffee,juice and a muffin/scone in a small area of the lobby. The staff were friendly and did supply beach towels for the short walk to the beach. Parking […] is expensive:$25 per day(valet only). We went to a parking garage two blocks away and safely parked for $12 per day.

"Best stay in Honolulu"
I stayed again at the Hotel Renew. The staff remembered that I had stayed there before (3 years ago) and offered a cheese plate for us. What sets the hotel apart from the others in Waikiki is the service. Nothing is too much for the hotel staff. There may be larger/more luxurious properties in Honolulu, but the staff at Hotel Renew is what brings us […] back. They allow you to borrow beach chairs, boogie boards, and towels to bring to the beach. After you have checked out, they allow a courtesy room to shower/change if you have a night flight out of Honolulu. I would certainly stay here again in the future.
