    Perfection in Paradise

    Probably the most perfect hotel I have ever visited. It is so refreshing to spend time in an environment that seems to really want your business and goes above and beyond satisfying the customer! There is a real feeling of welcome and kindness. The staff treat each other with respect and I think this all spills over onto the customers as the customers are also nice people...not arrogant or exhibiting an air of entitlement, which we sometimes see in upscale hotels and resorts.

    A luxurious and perfect retreat

    My wife and I just came here for a five night getaway. Everything was top notch. Friendly staff, all good was delicious. We chose this place mainly for it having room service and a spa and those did not disappoint! All the food and all the drinks were amazing though. We would definitely come back.

    The Gem of Waikiki

    The Halekulani continues its tradition of being the gem of Waikiki. The location on the beach is ideal, the facilities are top class, but two things stand out even more. The staff could not be nicer or more professional and for me, they put the competition to shame by being the only top class hotel in the island chain who still respects their guests by NOT running the resort fee bait and switch scam. You will pay a little more for your room, but boy is it ever worth it…🤙🤙

    Well worth it!

    We had a day stop over in Hawaii, coming home to Australia from skiing. We decided to stay at the Halekulani because it's the best hotel in Honolulu. Nearly changed hotels due to low level of Aussie dollar, but so glad we didn't. Hotel and service was superb, as good as anywhere, including Charles De Gaulle in Paris. Able to access our room at 8am. Also as it was my wife's birthday, a bottle of French champagne was delivered to our room. Sunset around the pool and bar is a memory forever. Thank you, Terry O'Grady

    Halekulani - The House Befitting Heaven

    The Halekulani is a beautiful, peaceful, and luxurious hotel in Waikiki, but somewhat secluded from the hustle and bustle of the touristy area. I would normally not stay in Waikiki, but staying at the Halekulani is an entirely different experience. The staff, especially those in the valet area, are exceptional. Sunday brunch at Orchids should not be missed. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and the hotel manager sent a bottle of champagne to our room with a note - that was a delightful surprise. We were a bit disappointed by the hotel's beach area that was clearly shared with an adjoining property and, it seemed, the general public. But the fresh bottles of water, the evening treats on our nightstand, and the overall ambiance are extraordinary. We had two room service dinners that, for the most part, were excellent. I'm not sure which restaurant to credit; I don't think it was Orchids. One night, we ordered a caprese salad and a shrimp cocktail. The presentation was lovely, but the tomato on the caprese salad was not ripe and should not have been served. Another evening we had a cheeseburger (it may have been the best cheeseburger I've ever tasted) and a grilled fish dish. Both were excellent. Recommend 10/10
