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.

Nice hotel
Nice place. A bit dated. A few cockroaches. Too soft of pillows. Would have liked an ocean view.
