exceptional everything at the royal hawaiian
the royal hawaiian lived up to 95% of our expectations. so it was basically an amazing time!!! let’s be forward and say the main issue was regarding connecting reservations, associated rates and early check-in “confusion.” wasn’t the best way to start off the trip and cost us a ton extra and zero empathy; however, in the end we simply stayed as far away from reception and concierge as possible they were not helpful! on the other hand - service otherwise is ON POINT. the in room dining staff rocked, cleaning crew wa respectful of our wishes and the property is in great shape. ps: worth renting beach chairs! pls bonus: my personal written work was in all the spg luxury collection books, having worked for one of their top liked design firms! felt great to see they use what you send them, as a colleague. will be back and, most of course, recommend!

Better options for the price
Beautiful architecture and comfortable (Westin) beds. Cleaning staff amazing. Management and front desk personnel sorely lacking. Guests are not appreciated. Maybe stay one night for the experience or just go to the famous bar and soak in the atmosphere. Don't commit your entire trip to this place. 50% of the time there will be an issue here, and management will not help and even be rude. Could be great with better management, in spite of the mall like neighborhood. Sad.

A Royal Stay
Booked this stay for my parents as a gift. Staying at the Royal is a wonderful experience. They enjoyed it thoroughly. Just make sure you do not get a corner room which is far less spacious and takes away from a more full ocean view. We love the Royal Hawaiian though, and hope to stay again soon. It's great to take advantage of the happy hour!

Secluded Piece of Heaven in the Heart of Waikiki
Nice hotel which feels so secluded within the heart of Waikiki. You can really feel the sense of history while on the grounds of the hotel. The staff is very courteous and a willingness to assist when needed. We normally stay at the Hilton Hawaiian or Sheraton, however after this one night stay, the Royal Hawaiian is now our hotel of choice when staying in Waikiki. The only negative was we could hear personnel in the room next to us. Which made us more cautious when talking or acting normal to ensure we weren't heard by the guests in the next room.
