    Just returned from the amazing Halekulani. This visit was different as I was there to scatter my late husband's ashes, per his request. We had stayed at Halekulani quite a few times previously. When I arrived there were roses and a lovely note in my room, they provided me with rose petals (a lot) for the ash scattering and did many other amazing things to make my stay wonderful. The room was beautiful and, per my request, was the room my husband and I stayed in last year. This was the BEST hotel stay I have ever had. A fabulous place with an incredible staff and a lot of ALOHA!

    AMAZING HOTEL. i am 80+ years, have traveled world wide for 50 years, and been fortunate to have stayed at many of the best hotels in the world. Halekulani is a wonder, from the smiling helpful persons when you arrive, to the front desk, check in and to a beautiful room--mine overlooked the ocean surf, Diamond Head and a pool with thousands of shining white tiles forming an underwater orchid. Top Management here has trained the entire staff with professional courtesy and competence. There are three restaurants and a great bakery open at 6 am. All are beautiful. My favorite was the House with No Key, named after a Charlie Chan novel and film. However, the Orchid was the best, for breakfast and dinner. Service is impeccable, no waiting for Juice, coffee, refills or anything else. Housekeeping-Superb. The long trip was mitigated by a Delta non stop from Atlanta ( 9 hours ). If you want a magical, beautiful, friendly, luxurious hotel. THIS IS IT. You not only have Honolulu, Waikiki but you can drive through the pineapple groves up to the beautiful north shore, including watching the 30 foot waves at the Banzai Pipeline. Traveler from Vero Beach, Florida.

    Luxurious, you get what you pay for

    Fantastic hotel, albeit way too expensive. They had so many great little touches, from the turndown service, the little quotes left in our room, the way they arranged our toiletries in the bathroom, the lens cleaning kit and case they left in our room once they knew we wore glasses, etc…,When our room was ready, we were escorted to the elevators and given a complete rundown of where everything was in the hotel. By the pool, we were escorted to the most luxurious chairs I ever laid my butt on. Expect to pay 22.00 for a mixed drink, plus tip. Overall… great experience!!

    The ONLY place to stay

    my daughter and i spent 6 nights at this delightful hotel - it is an OASIS in Waikiki we have told our family & friends you must stay here - we believe it is the ONLY place to stay on Waikiki Beach - book an ocean view room it is worth it - you can sit on your balcony and watch the sun rise and set the included breakfast was lovely by the ocean and prepared you for the day the pool area is large with plenty of sun lounges and the pool itself is very generous compared to the other hotel pools around there is a small beach out the front which allows you to go from the pool to the ocean and return easily - it is mainly for a swim - it is not really a beach area to sun bake on hire a long board from the hotel which my daughter did most days - you can go alone or take out an instructor there are many dining options within walking distance to try - our favourite was Mahina & Sun’s the only negative for those from Australia is the exchange rate! everything is very expensive for us!
