    Our 25th Wedding Anniversary visit to Honolulu , Diamond members

    We stayed at the Rainbow Tower in a corner room. Our initial thoughts were the hotel had not been updated recently. While the location was excellent, the amenities had not been kept up with current trends in the industry. We visited many other lobbies in the area and these competing properties were very nice and updated and gave you a luxury feel that you did not get at the Hilton. I felt with a little bit of effort, this property could easily stay up to date with its facilities but had not spent the capital to do so. I will say we received great treatment while we were there. The cleaning staff was great, our room was cleaned daily (which is refreshing nowadays). We did like walking around the resort browsing the shops within walking distance. We felt like the location was excellent. However, we did not know until we left that there was a shuttle to and from the airport which would have saved us some Uber charges. The fireworks show on Friday night was a nice touch and overall we enjoyed our time although may seek other options if we visit again.

    My reservation was cancelled by a random stranger for some reason. I was given a "renovated" room with a view of a roof. A roof. It is not renovated at all. Stayed here three years ago and it is exactly the same. Clerk was nice but this place is trash TRASH.

    Very average

    Not the best of Hilton’s, you probably can’t get anything closer to the beach right enough but the hotel feels a little tired, is exceptionally busy. Staff absolutely fine, food very, very average…Room amenities very poor with no bottled water supplied.

    Fabulous Stay!!

    We stayed at this hotel for it's amazing history. Considering it is very crowded and popular, the property was very clean and well run. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to the Ali'i Tower which is nice for couples and adults as it has it's own quiet pool on the 2nd floor roof with lovely views of the water. The room was very nice, very comfortable mattress and nice bathroom. Very user friendly. The balcony was large and we had a view of the Super pool and center of the property and Ocean view. You can also swim on the beach and in the lagoon. Tropics restaurant was very good. There is plenty of convenient shopping in the Tapa and Diamond Head Towers, and the shopping area on the property. Several restaurants are on the property and there is even a post office. A luau is offered as well. The only downside are the crowds and it can get quite noisy outside. The room itself was quiet if you close the sliding doors and curtains at night. There was a nice fireworks show on, (every), friday night we could see from our west facing balcony. If you are interested in the fabulous history of this property, there is an informational exhibit on the wall in the Tapa Tower. This hotel made our vacation!

    Hilton Hawaiin Village

    Excellent property with access to restaurants, shopping and Waikiki beach. Our view from the Tapa Tower room 2947 was awesome. Room was clean, the staff refreshed it daily. Over all really great experience. Only one issue was trying to figure out where to get your daily water and i finally gave up so we just purchased water from the store. Highly recommend a stay here in may
