    Avoid rooms by the elevator

    Stayed at the Kalia Tower. Unfortunately we got a room next to the elevator which is noisy. Sounds like someone rolling their luggage around in the rooms above you. Nice comfortable beds and nice balcony.

    Dated, expensive, crowded, very disappointed! Rainbow tower

    Here now feeling already cheated and disappointed. Expectations have not been met. We paid a lot of money for this holiday and this place is like a zoo, lacking finesse on all levels. We booked back home a sea view, then we were talked into what was promised to be a better sea view on arrival after waiting in line to check in like cattle! Worth 320 dollars??? No! so for two rooms at 40 dollars per night extra for that upgrade I expect a whole lot more than we have. Feeling pretty angry about it but got suckered in.. The room is very dated. Old dark furniture,! Loud air con, no USB charger points. No free water or shower gel? You get shampoo, conditioner and body lotion and some soap. The bathroom is old. The wi/if keeps dropping out. There is many towers here and probably over 3000 rooms which gives you an idea of how busy it is. We were starving when we arrived and had a burger with a coke each which turned up in one of those horrible nasty wire baskets lined with paper that you are afraid to cut into in case your knife goes through the holes and you end up eating varnish off of the table.. 54 dollars of nasty!!. We have just come from an amazing hotel in Maui and this is not even a comparison.. We have already decided we have no interest in exploring this so called village and will be spending our days out of the zoo as much as possible… what a disappointment!! I need to turn the air con off now so I can sleep!!!! Book elsewhere is my advise, Hilton: please don’t reply with one of those, we are sorry you are disappointed replies, bla , bla, bla…. I write reviews in order that others considering staying with you understand what to expect for their hard earned cash.. I don’t believe for one minute you care one bit as long as the money keeps rolling your way…. You know exactly what you have to offer and you need to drag it into this century! And perhaps stop up selling for no real reason than the money!!! Perhaps good customer care should come first.

    You can do better for far less

    We stayed here for a week. Pro: 22-acre resort on the ocean Wide beach Ocean lagoon Numerous pools 3 Jacuzzis Multiple shops and restaurants; Bali was very good but the portions (up to $75 for an entrée) were small. Fresco was very good but is not ADA accessible, a sign of just how old that building is. Refrigerator in the room. Con: Resort fee, about $60 per night (that’s on top of the room rate, where you are paying to stay at a resort.) Additional fees for umbrellas, beach chairs, etc. Parking: about $65 per night for self-parking, $75 for valet. Self-parking is on level 3 or higher, which requires a bit of circling the massive structure to get to an available space. Check-in will take an hour, with fairly relentless upselling (better room, better view, higher floor, etc.) When you arrive you will be greeted by the valet, a checker who sorts you into the right line (and confirms you have a reservation), and then the upselling by hotel reception. If you have made it this far, and resisted the upsell, you will be told that checking in before 4 p.m. costs $75. For a room which is already cleaned and available. If you decline, you can check your bags (tip the valet), and come back after 4 p.m. to stand in line and start again. Do not pass go. Some hotel facilities listed above in the “pro” section will be closed for the exclusive use of folks attending a convention at the hotel, even though you’ve paid to stay at this resort with all of these facilities listed. The concierge will send you to some facility unaware that someone else at the 22-acre resort has closed things off. For us, that included a Jacuzzi, a pool and a restaurant. The hotel is aging. Elevators will break. (We had 2 out of 3 elevators in our tower out for 5 days). Pools will be closed. (One for 6 days.) The heater on the adult Jacuzzi will fail and not be fully repaired during our stay; unavailable for 5 days, plus the day it was in an area reserved for the convention. The family Jacuzzis will be closed for maintenance and not re-opened awaiting parts; available for 2 of the 7 days we were there. The flat screen TVs do not have access to your account. DVD players are provided and there are DVD rental boxes scattered about. The furniture in our room was old. Wi-fi is free, but without bandwidth to use Netflix, etc. most of the time, especially at night. And the pools and Jacuzzis, when operational and not limited to conventioneers, typically close at 6 p.m. If you want a feather-free room, it will take multiple managers, and about 5.5 hours, including an additional hour at reception listening to the upselling pitch at adjacent stations, until management could get housekeeping to make the three trips necessary to swap out four pillows and remove the comforter. While the resort claims to be 22 acres, in fact there are two businesses here, the hotel and Hilton’s time-share business, Hilton Grand Vacations. As a hotel guest you will encounter HGV employees who will, politely, tell you they will not assist hotel guests. We encountered a manager, who was very helpful, but told us he had no authority over the HGV property facility HE had been sent to use. The concierge, next to reception, is staffed by HGV employees who will try to get you to attend a sales presentation. To Hilton’s credit, Hilton waived various fees and provided some restaurant vouchers given the three serious issues we had on day one: an hour wait to check-in, only to be confronted by the demand for $75 to avoid being sent away; a confrontation with a security guard at a Jacuzzi that was closed for the convention, unknown to the concierge who sent us there, and an hour spent at reception with two front desk employees trying to get the hotel to honor its’ hours’ old promise of a feather-free room. Bottom line: I would prefer to pay retail and get what I expect, than to deal with a dozen employees and FIVE managers dealing with the inability of this resort to be, well, a resort. Recommendation: Waikiki Beach is public (and the few hotels that are actually on the beach have zero security so the person on the beach chair next to you can be staying at the Y). You can stay elsewhere on Waikiki for far less and be closer to the beach than some of the buildings at the Village. You will have more choice of restaurants, and lower resort and parking fees.

    Quick trip to waikiki

    Big resort. Good service, good restaurants. Easy trip with lots of walkable things to do nearby. Waikiki is a bustling, (but not overcrowded) beach scene. Lots of restaurant options and shopping. Definitely an urban experience. With good deals on airfare, it was a perfect 3 day getaway from the west coast for us.
