We spent the first 3 nights of our vacation to the Islands at this hotel. We were upgraded from a partial ocean view in the rear tower to an ocean view in the front tower. Our balcony was large enough for a table, 2 chairs, and a chaise lounge. The room itself was large, but very average looking. The bathroom was tiny. The hotel does not charge a resort fee.
Elite members received a discount in the restaurants, but there were lots of specials in the restaurants and you couldn't use both. We took advantage of the "4-5-6" Special at the Moana Terrace Bar. 4 draft beer choices were $4.00 each, 5 Pupu (appetizers) items were $5.00 each, and 6 tropical drink choices were $6.00 each. The Kalua pig nachos and onion rings were ono (good).
The lobby area was attractive. There are 2 ABC stores in the complex for snacks, drinks, etc. The first night we actually bought sandwiches, chips, etc. and ate on our balcony.
If you want to stay in Waikiki, this hotel is a good choice.
