"Great Boutique Hotel on the edge of Waikiki"
Great little boutique hotel. On the edge of Waikiki, so easy to get in and out of the otherwise congested tourist area for day trips around the island. Friendly staff, continental breakfast, free internet -- a good value. Only negative was the lack of enough convenient electrical outlets in the room for electronic devices and chargers.

"Great hotel near the beach."
We stayed here for a night on a one-night stopover. The hotel is a block from the beach and restaurants, quiet, and in good condition. The staff were lovely. Definitely recommend staying here. It is about a $40 cab fare to the hotel from the airport.

"A Hotel That Has Extra Amenities"
This is a nice hotel. The staff is its greatest attribute. They are attentive and helpful. I hope the Aston appreciates the quality of the people working for them. That being said, I have a couple of complaints. I don't appreciate paying an extra $50 per day for amenities and parking. If you pay for them, they really aren't amenities are they? Also, our room was incredibly noisy. They was no escape from the sound of the AC from the massive Marriot across the street and the constant stream of busses. But that's probably true everywhere in Waikiki to some degree. Noise interferes with the process of renewal. That's why we prefer the Big Island. We were glad to get back to peace and quiet.

This is a great place to stay if you want a hotel to go do stuff - it's not a big resort hotel, but is a great place to base yourself. Nice to be able to access pools at bigger hotel across the street. Staff was very accomodating and friendly.

"In the middle of everything"
Awesome little boutique hotel. If you want quality over quantity this place is perfect. The rooms are a little smaller than standard rooms but they are leaps & bounds nicer. The hotel is only a 100 yards from the beach, 100 yards from the bus stop that takes you everywhere & next door to a steak house & seafood/ sushi bar. The hotel has a free dvd machine in the lobby so you can watch movies in your room if you want. The only thing I would change about the hotel is the breakfast. It only offers fruit & bread/ muffins but they have some good banana nut muffins. Wish they would of had cereal but that's my only complaint. Me & my wife will definitely be back when we visit Hawaii.

Hotel staff are very nice n friendly but the room was ok. The mattress wasn't comfortable enough, sheets n pillows were ok too! For more than 200 dollars per night I expect more! Parking was $25 per day plus extra $25 resort fee! The swimming pool n gym were located in Marriott resort which was cross the street!

"Quality experience but beware of extra charge"
Overall a good stay but do take care of the mandatory $25/day charge they put on you when you check out. This is supposedly for "facilities use" which they said is not included when you buy the hotel online. Why this is not included in that "total" price is not clear. If you're staying for a week that cost can become quite a bit. The staff were all friendly, helpful and the location is great. Internet is weak and didn't work much while we stayed there, despite the facility charge.

"Boutique hotel within a block of the beach."
We were looking for four reasonably affordable days on Waikiki. Hotel Renew was a great choice. We had access to the adjacent Marriott pool and exercise facility. And we were a city block from the beach with a nice view of the beach out the window. Recently updated rooms. Very helpful staff.

"Cute boutique hotel 1 block from Waikiki Beach"
The hotel is small compared to the resorts surrounding it and the continental breakfast was sparse, but the the rooms were very modern, clean and the staff was incredibly friendly. And best of all, it was 1 block from the turquoise waters of Waikiki. For the price, you won't find anything better. We stayed 10 nights and felt right at home. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this hotel.

"Aston great value, friendly!"
If you are looking for value the Aston Renue fills the bill. The staff is excellent and cater to their customers. The staff wants you to have the best experience possible. The rooms are small but clean and adequate. All rooms have small refrigerators and a very large 50 plus inch TV. Current released to videos are available, free. This is nice after a long day touring to be able to lay back and enjoy before going to sleep. The location is good, less than a block from the beach, zoo, and near value priced restaurants. The Tiki at the Waikiki Beach Aston has good music nightly, Wolfgang Puck's meals are a great value and taste great. The Pacific Beach Hotel is 2 blocks away you can dine in front of a large aquarium although it was pricey. If you are going on a tour, tour pickups are just steps away from the Aston Renew front door. If you need additional help an Expedia Help Center is at the sister hotel Waikiki Beach Aston.

"An Almost Perfect Hotel!"
This hotels design was absolutely spectacular, and the location perfect. The girls behind the front desk are wonderful and make you feel right at home. The downer for me was one detail. They charge an amenity fee per night for no amenities! By charging a $25 fee per night, they draw attention to the fact that there is no fitness room or pool on site, no hot breakfast option, no agent to book tours, no hospitality room to clean up for your night flight departure... all of which neighboring hotels offer with no fee. They offer to you a scent for your room which is very nice, and a glass of juice upon arrival. Is this what the amenity fee is for?!

"Awesome Hotel"
Our stay was excellent since the beginning. The warm towels and the pineapple juice was a nice touch. EVERYONE, including the house-keeping staff was friendly. The hotel seems fancy, but there was no arrogant attitude among the staff. They responded very quickly to fix a light fixture that was broken. Continental breakfast was great. I liked the coffee and hope they serve more of those pastries with bacon in them. Vallet Parking staff was also helfpul, friendly and knowledgeable. They always offered help when needed (for example, giving directions to a specific location). The only draw back is the fees that they charge that is not included with the hotel stay (e.g. amenity fee, vallet fee); however, they are upfront about these costs (it was on the expedia website) and we were already aware of this. It is however, worth the extra cash for those comforts.

Got off to a rough start with at least a 15 minute wait for valet parking. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated but the platform bed is not that comfortable. A/C unit was very loud and woke me up every time it kicked on. Good shower and bath products. The amenity fee is a bit ridiculous for what it includes, although the DVD rentals are a nice feature. Overall it was ok, but we expected more based on reviews we had read before staying.

"10 year Anniversary"
We were made to feel like it was the best vacation. We loved the smaller hotel feel, rather than a huge hotel w/ mass crowds in and out all day. The staff went out of there way to make us feel relaxed and comfortable. Every employee we talked to answered our questions and talked to us with manners expected of hotel services. We enjoyed being on the quiet side of Waikiki, but close to the beach at the same time. Cannot say enough great things about service and quality of the Aston Renew Hotel.

"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!

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).

"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).

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.

"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.
