We loved our stay at the Royal Hawaiian! The hotel is so beautiful. The outside grounds are so beautiful. The trees out front are from a storybook. Fresh flowers inside look fake but are very real. The hotel has a flower smell throughout but not overwhelming. Our beds were so comfortable. The bellhops were so nice and helped you with luggage and gave you advice. They give you a Kukui nut lei on arrival. The hotel is very central to Waikiki. Only a few minutes walk from great restaurants like Tommy Bahama, marukame udon, Roy’s, steak shack and more. Very close to shopping. The abc store is just a couple minute walk. The royal Hawaiian center is so close and has many stores to shop including the Honolulu cookie company. Hotel is right on the beach. The beachfront is perfect. Make sure to make reservation for umbrella and chairs early. You can make ahead before you even get there. Just go online. If you want to do a sunset cruise do the Kepoikai catamaran. It’s literally right next to hotel and affordable. We valet parked for our stay and it was 💯 worth it! The parking garage isn’t that close. I would definitely stay here again and I hope I get to stay here again. It’s on the expensive side. We splurged a bit fir the location and beauty of the hotel.

Beautiful setting that is a tranquil oasis in bustling Waikiki. Location is perfect with everything you need close at hand. Rooms are large and well appointed. The only downside is the challenge of finding seating by the pool. Pool staff are lovely and very friendly.

The Royal Hawaiian has been on our bucket list for many years - decided to finally stay there. Loved the old charm. Room was quaint and nice. The staff was OUTSTANDING. Two complaints: $42/day "resort fee" for things we did not do (Yoga, Hula, etc.) was unexpected. And while the (also unexpected) pool repairs required guests to use the Sheraton pool next door, the hotel made in inconvenient to access because the beach walkway was closed for some reason. Getting to pool next door meant going out to the sand and stepping over people laying on beach or migrating thru lobby or restaurants. One of the better Mai Tai's in Hawaii, though. Before booking I would suggest checking to see what repairs are going on or if a Movie was being filmed there. Interesting to watch filming but created a little inconvenience.
