A small detail.
Wonderful experience. My only distraction was the third floor historic elevator lobby windows. They are filthy. The windows open in and are easy to clean. It’s a shame not to enjoy the wonderful view

Amazing hotel! Worth every penny.
Absolutely amazing hotel. They are super welcoming and accomadating. Beds are the most comfortable beds in a hotel we've stayed in, and we have stayed in 100s of hotels. Free roll away was provided and even that was super comfortable. Lush hotel grounds, very tranquil, beautiful walkways. Super convenient location, everything is walking distance near by. Loved our stay here!

Would recommend
This hotel has a fantastic location in Waikiki Beach. We stayed in the Mailani tower which we really enjoyed. The rooms and amenities were great. We had a premium oceanfront room that had a huge balcony. The view was fantastic. The property was beautiful. The only downside was the pool was small. They share another pool with the hotel next door, but I didn’t really like that. Most of the staff were ok, but the valet, bell, and housekeeping were fantastic. I called the front desk twice during our stay and both times they were extremely rude, so it was a mix. I had an incident with the elevator door malfunctioning and slamming me in the arm/shoulder and the manager was really nice calling to make sure I was ok. Overall I would recommend this property.

8/10 Very Good

The Royal Hawaiian has been on our bucket list for many years - decided to finally stay there. Loved the old charm. Room was quaint and nice. The staff was OUTSTANDING. Two complaints: $42/day "resort fee" for things we did not do (Yoga, Hula, etc.) was unexpected. And while the (also unexpected) pool repairs required guests to use the Sheraton pool next door, the hotel made in inconvenient to access because the beach walkway was closed for some reason. Getting to pool next door meant going out to the sand and stepping over people laying on beach or migrating thru lobby or restaurants. One of the better Mai Tai's in Hawaii, though. Before booking I would suggest checking to see what repairs are going on or if a Movie was being filmed there. Interesting to watch filming but created a little inconvenience.
