    Charming glamour that hearkens back to the gilded age. Lush vegetation along the corridors and in the grove contribute to a peaceful setting.

    Attended the Luau. The price is more expensive than others but I felt it was worth it. The buffet is delicious and well done. The show and view are the best you can get. Open bar with endless mai tais

    The historic building has a better design and material quality than the Mailani tower. What the Mailani tower offers though is a secure entrance and breakfast area. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Outstanding service and old school quality. Pricy but worth it. Old rooms are nice, but tower rooms have great views. Treat yourself to a cabana. Spa is also nice. Best luau in Waikiki.

    A Luxury Collection Hotel, but its service and room quality aren't quite up to what you would expect of one. Make sure to pay attention as your bellmen mau destroy your nice luggage by mishandling..

    A nice touch is a lounge you can use after you've checked out to shower and change after a day on the beach before you head to the airport.

    So on top of the expensive suite we are paying for and the to-be-expected resort fee, we also have to pay $50 per day for a lounge chair on the beach. Andplusalso there are none left today. Nice!

    The private section of Waikiki is awesome. It's for hotel guests only so if you're trying to figure out a place to stay in Honolulu consider that. The Royal Hawaiian is the best in my opinion.
