    A great spot to stay in Waikiki

    Stayed here for the first time and was absolutely glad I did! A very intimate and personal Hotel in all the best ways. It's the type of place that the staff wants to know you personally and they take the time to make your stay one you'll want to never forget. The rooms are clean and comfortable, not anything over the top but definitely everything you would need. I'd much rather spend my money on a more personal and attentive experience than to have a hot water maker or a tiny microwave anytime. Auntie Renee at the lobby was incredible! She took the time to be sure that any questions or Arrangements I needed was met. Anita, Matt, and Ben, at the were the most awesome bartenders ever. The drinks Were well poured and So friendly and Interesting To talk to It made you want to cancel your flight and stay a little longer. The price, location, and staff, at this hotel makes it an easy choice next time I stay in Waikiki.

    Our 5* Choice Go to Boutique Hotel in Honolulu 🤠 ⭐️ 🌺

    This has been myself and my Hubby's go to for a very long time 14+ years now, I found it online before we flew back to Kaua'i from NZ what got me to book was the lure of Art Deco Decor and comfortable beds. It did not disappoint arrived dropped bags went up the road to our favorite diner Wailana Coffee House, back to room climbed into bed with late checkout and OH WHAT zzz'sville Bliss...Comfortable bed like sleeping on a fluffy cloud, best pillows, and I always travel with my pillow but no need to even unpack it :) This is why when we travel to Honolulu for business or a stop over this is always our Hotel of choice 🤙 , Front desk service 5*s+, Paniolo Bar and Cafe 5*'s+ the staff the drinks and the food especially the vege burrito breakfast if your lucky to get before it runs out 5*'s+, house keepers and other onsite staff 5*'s and you'll probably see the owner Mike there eating and chatting while he works. Check out all of the complimentary gifts 😎

    Just what we needed!

    Incredible hospitality, clean rooms, great location. Kollett was warm and informative both on the phone and during check-in. Her restaurant recommendation was perfect. Jacquie met our request for early check-in…by 4 hours. After a long flight, it was wonderful to be greater so well and to have access to our rooms right away.
