4 star experience for 5 star luxury price
It was ok. Have stayed many times. Has lost a bit of it’s “grandeur” as far as service. They have a new reservation system & my prepaid reservation through Hotels.com did not show up in their system. I spent and hour & half in the lobby for them to try and figure it out. The front desk person kept going in the back to ask for manager’s assistance. Manager never came out to personally address me. I finally called Hotels.com. Hotels.com was extemely helpful and called the hotel directly while I was on hold. It was only because of Hotels.com customer service that I was finally able to check in...at 9pm! I was exhausted. It was also my birthday. Royal Hawaiian management did nothing to aplogize for delay. Also, there is no way to reserve beach or pool loungers unless you book online months in advance. One other “complaint” - I stayed in a historic room (which I prefer for the authenticity) and my take-out lunch (which I left in the room for 2 hours in it’s packaging) ended up having ants in it. Location is phenomenal and the property is beautiful. I do fee the property does not qualify for the “5 star luxury” description.

Royal Hawaiian was going through a strike while we were there. The staff did an excellent job trying to keep everything going. Very friendly, accommodating staff

Labor Dispute continues
In the middle of a strike and never told the hotel is a bit tired and with the strike of staff going on with loud protest and total lack of services it is rough. The small staff is doing as good a job as possible but they should warn you before you arrive.

Don't go until the strike is over...
There is a strike happening in Honolulu and Hotels.com didn't mention it at booking. Most ameneties at the hotel were closed, including the reason most people go to this hotel, the beach front bars...all closed. Don't go.

Aloha Waikiki
The hotel is a local staple. It’s classical and well maintain. This is prime location for beach front and shopping.However there is a strike by the bargaining workers,housekeepers, cooks and bakers. Therefore service wasn’t optimal but sufficient.
