The oceanfront Sheraton Waikiki in Honolulu has a curved design that blends into the island setting of lush palm trees and calming ocean waves. You’ll find the hotel right next to Waikiki Beach and close to the popular surfing area of the North Shore. Contemporary guest rooms with a Hawaiian island theme deliver views of Honolulu, Ko’olau Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. There are two oceanfront pools: the Helumoa Pool and the Infinity Pool, which is only a few feet from the ocean. The hotel was awarded the “Project ICARUS Supplier Gold Medal” by the Global Business Travel Association in 2013 for its environmental sustainability practices.

Highlights

The Sheraton Waikiki is located a short distance from the heart of Waikiki. The hotel features three highly rated restaurants: the contemporary Rumfire, The Edge of Waikiki and Kai Market, which offers traditional Hawaiian cuisine. The upscale thirtieth-floor Leahi Club Lounge offers a beautiful view of Diamond Head. Guests can relax in the Spa Khakara or choose one of several water adventures.

The Dolphin Connection by Starwood experience gives visitors an opportunity to interact with dolphins. The Ko Olina Ocean Catamaran Snorkel Sail tours Oahu’s western coast. During this tour, visitors can snorkel, see Turtle Town and spot dolphins and Alaskan humpback whales at certain times of the year. The on-site Poppins Day Care centre offers activities for children aged three months to 12-years-old.

Been here many times and will go back

I've stayed at many of the hotels/condos in Waikiki and this my favorite. The only downside, compared to some, is that the beach is actually not immediately in front of the hotel but its really only a 100 feet or so. Now some of the pros: the rooms are great, extremely comfortable beds and pillows, balconies are a nice size, free wifi, the set up of the hotel is a very nice design so the distance from your room to the beach or pool really only feels like a few steps, the locations is excellent with the exception of the beach distance noted above, good gym, and the pool is my favorite in the whole area. The infiniti pool is an adult only pool that overlooks the beach and diamond head with great views (excellent for photography), and plenty of chairs/towels etc. Another favorite of mine is Outrigger Waikiki because I really like Duke's Restaurant on the 1st floor but the hotel itself there is not as nice as the Sheraton so occasionally I just walk. Rum Fire is a good restaurant (somewhat pricey but expected for the location) and a great bar at night (mostly young professional ages). Will stay here again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Several: for dining there are a few places a very short walk away with great food and some cheaper prices then what you find in the more populated spots. Go to Pho Saigon on Kuhio, (one block north of Sheraton) for great pho and cheap prices. Arancino is a FANTASTIC Italian restaurant on Beach Walk about 2-3 blocks from Sheraton with decent prices and excellent food. For other attractions Hanauma Bay is decent but its getting trashed by tourism and now you have to wait/watch a video. Instead I prefer to just grab a cab and go to Kahala Beach which is just on the other side of Diamond Head and is sparcely populated ($15 cab ride). Climb diamond head, its $1 on foot, and has excellent views. We also took a rainforest tour with Guides of Oahu for $45 and well worth it (petroglyphs, burial sites, King Kamehameha III's palace, movie sites etc) which I would certainly recommend.

Great location, needs room makeover

Location and views were the best in town. Immediate access to shopping and beach. Parking fees were included in resort fee which was unexpected. However, for having an ocean front room on the 30th floor, I expected the room to be a little nicer. Pretty bare. You get the same room at a Holiday Inn. First shower and it was clogged, they did fix it right away though. Handle was missing on one of the bathroom window doors. Just a plain Jane room overall. They definitely put all their money into the common areas.

Great location and service. Recommend full ocean view room

We had an awesome family getaway.the hotel is steps from the beach, and you can sign out towels and chairs as well. The hotel has two good restaurants and a variety of abc stores and other restaurant choices close by. I would definitely return!

Family getaway

Location was great! Beautiful pools. The room was average. We didn't upgrade for the ocean view, so didn't expect too much. We would definately come back and would stay at Sheraton.

Dining tip: In Hotel

All you can eat breakfast buffet within the hotel was very good!!! A little $$$, but kids under 12 eat free. The hotel is within walking distance to everything. It's very convenience.

A few days in paradise

The hotel staff were very professional and always said hello when passing in the hallway. The hotel is very clean and offers an awesome pool overlooking the ocean. If you want some great pool time this is the hotel for you. We were very happy with the drink and food selections the hotel offered. If you don't want to leave the hotel property, you don't have to in order to enjoy good food and to have a great time. We would stay in the same place the next time.

Very Enjoyable

My husband and I came to Hawaii for our honeymoon. We were on the 31st floor and looked out to the city from inside our room, but from the balcony we could see the ocean. The view was spectacular since this motel is one of the tallest in the area. The weather was gorgeous while we were there and we visited Pearl Harbor one day and anther day we just enjoyed the pool at the motel. While we were at the pool turtles came up to the edge of the water. They were very enjoyable to watch. We purchased breakfast at the Kia Market with our motel reservation which made it cheaper and very nice not having to go and find breakfast. Our stay was very nice. The only thing we wished we had know before we went is that there is a resort fee for $20/day which included parking. We had decided to take the bus instead of rent a car, but wished we had rented a car after we got there and could not find any to rent near by.

Great Location!

The Sheraton Waikiki is located in the heart of Waikiki Beach. We loved being so close to the beach, tour pick-up locations and shopping.
