    Good hotel, great bar.

    We liked the location, the price was ok for waikiki and the room also nice. It‘s not a luxury hotel, but good. We stayed the second time and it was good as well. Staff was very nice, but the room service was not done properly every time. The bar, where many locals hang out is a must.

    Aloha spirit alive and well

    Really enjoyed our stay at the Equus. All the staff were super friendly and helpful. Had some interesting conversations with Puka who not only was helpful to me getting in and out of the hotel with my 9 foot surfboard but also made us happy to be back on Oahu. Mahalo Nui Loa, Paul and Keala

    The Equus is a Oh yes!

    What can I say? The room was comfortable but a little dated. The bed was soft and comfortable as well. What pushed this place to 5 stars was the staff, Lincoln, and Colette at the front desk was amazing and knowledgeable about where to go, where to eat, and plenty of places within walking distance. The bar downstairs with Anita, and Sandy served top notch drinks with great conversation and personality. I dare say that I will be coming back anytime I’m in the area. It really felt like a secret hide away.

    Assistance from the Reservation team

    I reached out to the Reservation Team at The Equus over several weeks for a variety or reasons such as getting the military discounted rate to having them hold a package for me. Unfortunately, I was not able to get to Oahu as planned and again the reservation team were very understanding.

    Home away from home!

    Very clean and comfortable- they made you feel right at home. Loved the outside lounge area. Rooms were large and had plenty of storage. Close to shopping, restaurants and beach. I will definitely stay again!
