The staff and growns are amazing The dolidpin and turtle tanks, way to small for them to live
It was an amazing holiday, the staff were so friendly & welcoming. The room well laid out & everything extemely comfortable. The restaurants we tried were exceptional.
The dolphin experience! Shopping! Need more buses to shops
No doubt, the best place to stay around the Diamond Head; dolphins living just next to the swimming pool being one of the unique "staffs" of the stay.
Private beach means it is never overcrowded. Friendly, professional staff. Dolphin Lagoon a must experience for kids. Big, comfortable room with comfortable bed, nice bath amenities. All toilets have a bidet, which is a nice surprise. Beautiful grounds and atmosphere. Above average humidity for this time of year. We were told it was due to the El Nino from winter. Small pool (and number of chaise lounges) that can get crowded quickly. Food from the Seaside Grill and Plumeria is overpriced and okay, at best. Drinks overpriced, but tastes great.
Kahala is located close enough to the city action yet far enough away where it's remote. Though the pool area was relatively small, it was never crowed. The dolphin lagoon and sea turtle exhibit was quite amazing. Beach was also gorgeous and calm. No complaints about the Kahala. Would definitely visit again. Wish there was good snorkeling right around there but that's asking for too much!!
Great hotel when traveling with kids. I could eat breakfast and keep an eye on them as they were making sand castles. No beach on Waikiki would be this safe for kids as they're too crowded. The mattress was just awful!
Perfect facility for people who do not want to stay in Waikiki
Location was ideal. Staff helpful. When we first got to our room we could hear the generator in the living room. We decided to let it slide for the night and then got use to the noise.
Always have liked it always want to stay, perfect hotel. We have always booked through RCI and that's how we found it. Times we can't get it we feel cheated. Really appreciated the half day charge for our last day. Never had a hotel that offered this and as our flight left at midnight was wonderful to feel relaxed for most of the day. hmmmmm...let me think...uh noooooo.
close to all destinations, shopping beach the standard of the rooms advertised appeared better quality on the internet at the time of the booking. There was no information about the added TAX's to the room on a daily basis. this needs to be mentioned when advertising. (stat tax, Local Tax and room service fee)
Location ,clean resort and friendly staff.....great eating next door......near the beach! Pulling down the studio bed from the wall it landed on top of my foot and it was swollen for 2 dats!
Nothing to like. Needs major remodeling.Very noisy. Small rooms and not very clean
the people that work there are 10 times nicer than the Moana !!!
Location location location. I have to say the staff were on point on every questions and requests I made. For a resort they had a pull out bed. Compact size room.
The location was good and the staff friendly..
Good location for beach activities, dining and shopping Noise from street and air exhaust duct
The staff was very pleasant and accomadating. The Hotel was at a very good location for shopping, dining, and going to the beach.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The ocean view suite was beautiful and we enjoyed every night during our 12 day stay. Service was impeccable, peoe were friendly and gave great advice for sightseeing and delicious restauants. Food in the hotel was great, a little pricey but worth it! Maids came twice a day with water and ice so the rooms were always clean. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Cool relaxing atmosphere! In walking distance to everything great
My wife and I stayed at the Modern Honolulu celebrating our 10th wedding anniversay. The place was absolutely wonderful in all areas I can think. The decor was very modern without being stuffy. The staff was professional and friendly. The location was convenient to all of the major attractions in Waikiki. We would absolutely stay here again if we are fortunate to return to Oahu.
Me and my daughters are very satisfy about this travel. We had a good services and the staffs very polish. The room is very nice and cleanliness, its a good hotel to go, I like it. the only thing we don't have free breakfast, I would like to have free breakfast in the morning thank you for everything.
Beautiful hotel, I loved, loved the pools. The staff at the pool were very friendly and courteous. The first words out of my mouth when I walked into the room 'wow, nice, love the bathroom'. But then reality set in...I had to really be careful to not walk into the corner of the platform bed. I hit it twice and bruised my ankles. the mattress is not comfortable, every morning woke up with a backache. The shower is narrow and I kept bumping into the soap, shampoo and conditioner holder. If they move that holder say next to the water temperature controls, it would be perfect. They only gave us one full roll and 1/2 a used roll of bathroom tissue, very thin bathroom tissue. We used it up by the 3rd day and we had to ask for another roll to be delivered and it never arrived. Overall, its a nice hotel and would probably stay there again.
WE had reservations for a King bed and got two doubles. No patio. You had to call the front desk to get ice, and then only a small amount was delivered and we ended up tipping, preferred to get it ourselves. No self parking... If you came from across parking bridge with luggage, no directions on how to find the lobby which was downstairs... Beds were hard and platform style, so platform sticks out and easy to trip on at night.... Not overly impresses with hotel. Pool area was spectacular though.
I expected more from this luxury hotel after researching it online. It was ok and didn't quite feel like a luxury experience like we've had at other hotels. You also have to take a taxi or a very long walk to Waikiki. The hotel has a very chic vibe and looks new, but the service is spotty. The best part of the service is housekeeping because they came in the morning and again at night to turn down the bed and replace any used towels. But it's pretty downhill from there. The valet and bellmen seemed absent minded and did not offer to help us with our bags (there are some stairs from the valet to the entry door). The front desk had a short line, and we saw the people in front of us get a drink while they checked in, but we were not offered one. Maybe we weren't cool enough. The restaurant hostess acted like she was doing us a big favor by giving us a table without a reservation, but by the time we left, the restaurant was not even close to being full. They do have a nice pool area where ...
Great location, friendly personnel, clean & comfortable room.
The Modern was a great hotel, the rooms were spacious and clean. The pools were tremendous. The only negative side was the food at the hotel was pricey compared to just about anywhere else you could go.
Our whole experienceat theModern was great. From the second we arrived until we left the staff did everything they could to make sure we had an enjoyableexperience.
This hotel seems unreasonably pricey, especially given the competition and its location. The lounge downstairs is not only kinda lame (we went elsewhere), but so unnecessarily loud that we could hear it on the 6th floor at 2am. The room was beautiful, but sparsely appointed as were the bathroom toiletries a little lacking. Morimoto's is a MUST however, their fusion breakfast menu was just amazingly delicious. The pools were ok, the adults only version only ankle deep, and the main pool alright - i certainly had pool envy while strolling the strip! The desk staff were ok, nothing outstanding, although the concierge who helped me went so far as to print off yoga schedules for me which was handy. Had one mix-up on a room service order but that was taken care of in a timely manner. Not sure if I would stay again, there are nice hotels closer to the action, but glad i tried The Modern!
This turned out to be a great vacation spot. I loved that the place wasn't overcrowded with package plan tourist groups. The pool area was relaxed so both families with children and singles could enjoy it together. I didn't use the adult pool area, because its not a pool. If you are sunbathing next to the pool, you want to jump in and cool off. Ankle deep water may make for a pretty picture or place to have a evening cocktail, but its too hot during the day to be practical. The room was comfortable. The bed made for a perfect nights rest. Loved the big shower. I was worried that I would hear the night club, but only heard a few loud guests returning to their room. The food was great, best hotel food I have ever had, However the Mai tai was lame. Tasted like a little OJ with white rum. I look forward to a return visit.
We loved our stay at The Modern. We ate dinner at Morimoto's and also over the banana macadamia nut pancakes. Our ocean room view room was nearly perfect except for the worn carpet. Catherine made sure we had a room on the upper floor. She was lovely. The bartenders at the pool area and also at the Library were awesome. This hotel had a little bit of a Vegas feel. We enjoy boutique style hotels. The waiter that waited on us each morning at Morimoto's was incredible. We felt it was definitely worth the money.
Zimmer waren groß und sauber! Sowohl das Ein- bzw. Auschecken gestaltete sich sehr schwierig, weil das Hotel keinerlei Informationen seitens booking.com erhalten hat. Wir haben das Hotel eine Nacht vorher gebucht. Die Angestellte wollte uns dann zusätzlich den Zimmerpreis belasten. Ein internationaler Anruf (Vorwahl 44) war vom Front Desk nicht möglich, so dass man die Angelegenheit nicht gleich klären konnte. Allgemein wirkten die Angestelten nicht gerade so, als wüssten sie was sie machen sollen. Allein das Ein-Checken dauerte 1,5 Stunden. Das Aus-Checken nochmalls 1 Stunde.
Gutes Comfort und Sauberkeit, zentrale Lage, Nähe ztum Strand und Shopping Meilen, einfach fantastisch!!!!
am besten war die gute lage und das preis leistungsverhältnis. perfektes hotel für preisbewusste reisende die zimmer waren bzw sind zwar sauber aber nicht sehr komfortabel
Die gute Lage, nahe zum Zentrum und nur durch einen Park zum Waikiki-Beach Die räumlichkeiten (Frühstücksraum) sind dunkel und benötigen eine Auffrischung
Aloha, We stayed at the Halekulani for a week in January 2009. The service was consistently excellent. Wait staff, bell boys, concierge, maids, room service - every single employee we encountered went way above and beyond to make sure our needs were met, and then some. That said, the hotel rooms and furnishings were something of a disappointment. The decor seemed tired and worn, and even the mid-range rooms were small. On the whole, the hotel interior seemed to have seen better days, and would not compare favorably to hotels on the mainland at less than half the price. Still, the service and the food made up for that deficiency, so we still felt like we got our money's worth. We would absolutely return to the Halekulani, were we to visit Oahu again. However, our next visit to Hawaii will probably be to one of the other islands, simply because the town and its architecture, like the Halekulani's interior, seem to hold on to their glory days of the 60's and 70's, maybe through inerti...
We can only say wonderful things about the Halakulani Hotel. It is beautiful: from the rooms to the gardens, to the wall-less reception desk, and common areas. The food in the restaurant, The House Without A Key, and room service were superb. From our room it appeared the waves were breaking under the hotel. What a georgeous optical illusion. But...the best part was the people and the service they provided. We were always greeted warmly and our name was always used. Every question was answered. For example, we admired a flower in the garden and asked what was its name at the concierge desk. Flora is certainly not their specialty and they appologized for their ignorance. About an hour later we receive a knock on our door and the anser was delivered in a folder with a 10 page print out on the flower in question. We loved the little gift left for us each night after room service turned down or bed and the welcoming gift when we arrived of the chocolates and fresh fruit. I hav...
The reviews I've read did not do it sufficient justice.... This Impeccable, immaculate, unique facility with it's extremely extraordinary, phenomenal hosting was superb. I recommend this place to every and any one who wants quality....7 stars and two thumbs up :I)
This is an amazing hotel. Georgeous, and classical all at the same time. If you can't afford to stay there, at least stop by and have a cocktail at sunset!
Breakfast buffet is a little poor considering its cost $30 per person
the staff know us by our last names and they are very friendly and professional. Ture aloha spirit. When I asked for hot water the first day, the second day they gave me an electric pot so that I can hot water anytime. Excellent in attending to details and very sensitive to guess' needs. It's pricy, but you will feel like a king staying there. Excellent location but not noisy. The room is spacious and the amenities are top of the class. I even ran into a few movie stars there.
A beautiful hotel situated right on the ocean. The views of the water and Diamond Head are fantastic, and the proximity to restaurants, shops and other things to do is terrific. If you just want to lounge by the pool, the chairs are very comfortable and the staff incredibly helpful. The service overall is simply out of this world. They can help with any kind of arrangement, from rental cars to running and hiking options. The rooms are beautiful and sitting out on the patio was a great way to end the day. We absolutely loved our stay in paradise!
We stayed from Friday to Monday and it was the perfect setting for relaxing and being treated well. We spent most of our time on the lanai so that we could soak up the Diamond Head and ocean view. The nightly music at House Without A Key was audible from there as well. We love everything about Halekulani!!!
Great to get away from it all and have the satisfaction of beingm taken care of at all times, moose mcgilicuddy's is a great palse to relax of lewers St.
Beautiful hotel, excellent location. Would definitely recommend Halekulani for luxury and vip service.
We stayed for 7 night's this Aug 2009 it was one of the best places we have stayed at .The service is top notch and the people really care about your satisfaction while your there. The buffet in the morning is a can't miss great food and service. We are already planing our return trip in the very near future. We also booked a privite island tour while we were there through the hotel and it was fantastic . We went to places you would not normally see through a regular circle island tour this is one I would recommened to everyone if you can afford it!! Anthony was our driver and he shared the island culture and some hidden places on the island it was great we were out for over 6 hour's and saw the entire island. Be prepaired it is expensive but if you want the best you have to pay for it. Enjoy!!
