    Make sure to try the Moana Sunset tea, a heady blend of ohelo berries and mango with black tea. Don't miss the treat that comes at the end—a tiny scoop of lemongrass-green tea sorbet.

    The two best things about the Moana Surfrider are its prime beach location and The Beach Bar with its strong drinks, respectable food, and fast service. Also, a great view during lunch!

    If you can get a table at the beach bear, this is a really nice spot for a cocktail and nibbles. Not so kid friendly as it is a little posh, but a memorable experience - LOVE THIS HOTEL! Read more

    This is the first hotel to open on Waikiki Beach back in 1901. This is without a doubt the classiest hotel in Waikiki with a rich history. The architecture displays true Hawaiian style.

    Great for history buffs, not a lively place. Street side rooms are noise starting at 7am. Old photos and historic info on the 2nd floor. Rocking chairs on 1st and 2nd floor for people watching.

    The hotel has a shower room you can rent for those who stayed at the hotel. This allows you to hang out at the beach well after your checkout. The room was very clean and nice.

    This is gorgeous hotel with great staff and service. The increase of street performers have made it SO loud in city view rooms. Not the hotel's fault but it can negatively affect your experience!

    You really can't get a more beautiful hotel in Waikiki than this one. Their high tea is great to share with your mom/daughter. And the views of the ocean are spectacular!
    HISTORYJuly 12, 2010
    Opened in 1901 & became the largest hotel in Waikiki. In 1905 Jane Standford, Co-Founder of Stanford University died from poisoning in her room, making it one of America’s legendary mysteries.

    If you have SPG status, valet parking is included with your resort fee. Otherwise it's 33 for the rest. You can always do self parking across the street for much less.
