Wedding Trip

I was a little disappointed in the cost for parking, I wasn't informed that there would be a charge, and I was a little floored at the price. I tried to find parking in and around the hotel, but could not, so I had no choice but to pay. Seemed like quite the scam to me.

First time in Honolulu

The Hotel itself a 5min walk from Waikiki Beach which is really conventient. Also, the city center is really close. We needed to do some shopping the first day and since the hotel provides a shuttle, this was very practical although we had to wait quite a long time for it to come (was late). Room was vey clean, bright and comfortable. Big plus:fridge, microwave, shampoos and coffee maker are provided! One info that we would have appreciated to know in advance: hospitality fee applies for every day ($15/day) we missed that important information at the check in and were surprised when we got charged almost $80 when we checked out. Overall: very nice staff, great room and awesome location! Would stay there again!!!!

Good Trip

Everything is wonderful, except that the "partial ocean view" didn't worth the extra money

Excellent hotel, excellent location

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the aqua palms for a week while we were in Hawaii for a wedding. For the price, you can't do any better. The location is perfect and right next to the beach and the staff were so kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here again

Dining tip: In Hotel

There is an IHOP pretty much attached to the hotel. You get a 10% discount with your room key and it's pretty awesome.

Perfect hotel for the price.

We stood at this hotel for 8 days. All the staff were very nice. We enjoyed the pool at night and workout room. Walking distance to the beach, trolley, market place. Ihop Restaurant next door with 10% discount loved that. Hotel and rooms were very clean. The parking garage was a little tight for bigger cars or trucks but manageable. I would stay here again.

I rented a car but decided to walk or catch trolley when shopping / restaurant since parking was hard to find and almost everything we did was walking distance.

Great Location and value

Parking structure is a challenge for oversize cars, only a couple of spaces to accommodate Expedition or Suburban. Very tight entry and exit for these vehicles. Room was very clean and provided complimentary safe, wifi, fridge, microwave and coffee. Location is great, would stay there again.

Ala Moana Center and Ala Moana Beach Park are within a mile away with ample parking for either shopping or food court for lunch or dinner. Ala Moana Beach park is a great family beach.
