Good Stuff Wyland Waikiki!!!

by TripAdvisor Member narnis

we stayed 3 nights, checked in early with no complications, and were upgraded (we found a good rate on expedia). beautiful new hotel, with a boutique vibe compared to the other huge offerings on waikiki. my husband loved the chill-out room with massage chairs and big screen, i loved the free ice-blocks by the pool! The Wyland had great service the whole time we stayed, and we would definitely recommend it to friends and family. The beach was a short walk, as was the shopping. Good stuff!!

The Hotel inspired by the artist Wyland

by keida84 about The Wyland Waikiki

This "gem" of a hotel was inspired by the marine artist, Robert Wyland. When the shuttle left us at the entrance to the hotel, we walked up through a varied lot of sculpture which had us "ooing and aahing" at the start. As the double doors slid open we walked into the reception hall which was cool and sleek. Wyland's art is worked into many aspects of the decor, including a large flat screen monitor which shows beautiful underwater scenery. This fresh and trendy hotel has gone through a recent renovation although the "Spada Bar and Restaurant" along with the "Spa Pure" spa and fitness club are still under construction.

The hotel is located at the corner of Royal Hawaiian Blvd and Kuhio, is in a perfect spot for those who do not require a car. Most of the areas attractions are well within walking distance and in a relatively safe region of the city. With both of us being female we felt quite safe walking back to the hotel around 11:30pm but we did have our eyes and ears open to our surroundings. One thing our hotel was very conscientious about was safety. We had to have a worker come up to our room to fix our safe when he arrived he was accompanied by a security guard. We thought this was a good policy for both us and the hotel. They had a guard in the lobby of the hotel 24/7.

The hotel is just across the street from the "DSF" building and this was especially nice since I had booked our "trolley tickets" (see my transportation tips) and the depot was conveniently located to our hotel. The best thing I can say about the Wyland is the staff. Not only were they friendly but they went out of their way to go the extra mile for the hotel guest. Everyone from the front desk, to housekeeping to the workers in the Kimo Bean coffee bar were accommodating, friendly and very professional. Extra kudos to these hard working people.

The rooms are beautiful, however I think the hotel needs to have some other bedding choices for their "higher" level rooms. We booked a "Kitchenette City view" room because it had twin beds. We had an automatic upgrade to the next level of rooms but this was a one bedroom suite which was lovely but it only had a King size bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room, the sofa bed was comfortable but it did not compare to a real bed so this was a bit of a detraction.

The room had a microwave, refrigerator, 4 cup coffee pot and an extra sink. We had a complimentary cup of coffee and a pastry at the Kimo Coffee bar downstairs and we choose to use it for our afternoon "coffee and tea time."

The pool area was beautiful with pool and spa, they even offer poolside massages which was excellent. 3 computers and free "Wi-fi" for personal use was located in the lobby of the hotel with complimentary printing of items such as boarding passes.

We definitely would choose this hotel again. A great value for the money.

Fab hotel and excellent service

by TripAdvisor Member dontyouknowwhoiam

A friend and I stayed at the Wyland Waikiki for 4 nights over New Year's and we were delighted with all aspects of our stay. Being a bit of a princess when it comes to hotels, we thoroughly researched all the major ones in Waikiki on TripAdvisor before going and I was so happy with our choice - this place came up trumps.

I would endorse many of the comments already made about the Wyland - namely, great location - away from the noise of the main drag but close enough to walk to beach and back in 10 mins; a lovely relaxed environment around the lobby, pool etc - like a junior W; the chill out room, free internet access and on site coffee shop serving proper lattes etc are all also a nice touch. The twin rooms are definitely on the snug side, but are very well appointed and the beds are super comfortable.

I have to make special mention of the staff, particularly the assistant manager who went out of his way to try and sort out our arrangments for New Year's Eve, calling his contacts around the town and treating us like total VIPs. All this at a very reasonable rate too (although the parking at $25 a day did rack things up a bit).

Double thumbs up.

Convenient but Itty Bitty

by TripAdvisor Member BrittB

After a good bit of research for our girl's trip to Waikiki, we decided that the Wyland was just too great a deal to pass up. And it is an incredible value. The hotel is a short walk from just about anything you would want to do in Waikiki. The lobby is modern and cool (it has a W Hotel feel). The staff is responsive and friendly and the whole place feels very new and clean. Our room met the same standards--the beds are comfortable and the bathroom clean. Just one caviat. The rooms are TINY. I'm talking cruise ship tiny.

We were after an inexpensive trip, so my friend and I went for a standard room with two beds and a city view. We had twin beds and had to store our luggage (although somewhat excessive--it was a girl's trip after all) on the lanai. We were even removing phone books from the bedside table and storing folded items on towels under the bed in a quest for extra space. So...I would highly recommend the Wyland if you are traveling light. There is barely enough room to turn around in there.

Wonderful new hotel in Waikiki

by TripAdvisor Member mlstravel

If you have been to Waikiki, you know that there are very few new hotels in the area and we decided to give the Wyland a try. We arrived at around 10:30 AM and our room was surprisingly ready. They also upgraded us to a partial ocean view on the 17th floor. This is a remodeled hotel and they have done a wonderful job. Even though it is not on the beach, it is close to everything. 3 blocks from the beach and shopping. Being alittle away from the beach is actually a plus in our book since it is less busy and quieter. The pool area is so serene and gorgeous. They also provide Otter Pops which is a fun touch, along with the Pixy Stix at the front desk! All of the hotel staff were attentive and helpful. The beds are amazingly comfortable. If I had to think of one negative it would be the shower which is very small, but I think they did a good job with what they had to work with. Another HUGE plus at this hotel is the Chill Room - there are 8 massage chairs in this room which is perfect at the end of the day. I wish I could have taken one home! If you are looking for a huge chain hotel, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a relaxing new boutique hotel, I would say give the Wyland a try. We are very glad we did!

Impressive stay at the Wyland

by TripAdvisor Member Slowdriver

We spent 3 nights at the Wyland. As we got off the shuttle, someone was right there to help with our luggage. Early check-in wasn't a problem at 1230hrs at the front desk. The staff were very pleasant and responsive. The decor was artsy (Wyland) and very tasteful. Everything appears very new and clean. There was free internet in the lobby, free newspaper at your door in the morning, one free coffee and danish per person per day in the cafe, free use of massage chairs in the "Chill Room", free 15 minutes of calling to N. America or locally, and free freezies at the pool.

The hotel is on a major busline...convenient to go to the major city sights in one direction and to Hanaoma Bay (closed on Tues.) in the other direction, all for busfare of $2. The downside is that it is noisy at night if the room faces the "Cityview". Waikiki Beach is within walking distance...about 4-5 blocks. All major shopping is within walking distance.

The 1 bedroom and living room were a nice size. The bathroom was normal sized. Everything was very new and tasteful. We will definitely go back.

Superb Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member PhiQ

We booked this hotel on Priceline and were definitely not expecting too much but were thrilled with our experience. The hotel has just been renovated so it is spotless. The decor is very hip and stylish. The lobby has gorgeous aquariums, flat panel tvs and cool lounges as well as free internet. The pool and sculpture garden were beautiful. Certainly above average. This really is a fun boutique hotel. It is about two blocks from the beach in a great shopping area too. Paying top dollar to be able to see the beach is overrated. Staff was helpful and courteous. The room was small but impeccably decorated and super clean. It was a great deal. One of the least expensive hotels we found on Waikiki.


by TripAdvisor Member cluvs2travel

This was the absolute best place we have ever stayed. I would take the Wyland over any Hyatt in America. The hotel is beautiful, kid friendly, yet elegant. The staff were the most sincere and helpful group we've ever had at a hotel. The room was beautiful and the master bed so comfortable! They have a cafe with pasties and coffee, a beautiful bar area and outstanding service. We were so sad to leave. I would return in a heartbeat and will always remember this hotel.

Tropical Drinks I Didn't Say "No"To

by keida84

"Jojocan did not Say no either!"

Jojo could not come with us on this trip, first of all if the heat didn't melt her, the sight of all those good looking surfer boys would do her in for sure.

Therefore we had a"virtual" cocktail with her. She was hungry too so we threw in a Mango and a guide to Oahu so she could find surfer boys!

"You must try a "Lava Flow""

The Lava Flow...just what the heck is in a Lava Flow:

1 1/2oz. Light Rum
2 oz. Pineapple Juice
1 oz. Cream of Coconut
1/2 Banana
1/4 cup Strawberry Puree
1/2 cup crushed ice

Combine all ingredients in an electric blender with the ice. Blend 20 - 30 seconds. Pour strawberry puree into a hurricane or collins glass. Follow with the blended mixture. This creates the flow.

Garnish with a pineapple wedge and paper umbrella (of course!)

"Bahama Oh! Mama"

You might wonder whatt is in a Bahama Mama? Me too, & it was good!

1/4 oz coffee liqueur
1/2 oz dark rum
1/2 oz coconut liqueur
1/4 oz 151 proof rum
juice of 1/2 lemons
4 oz pineapple juice

Combine all ingredients and pour over cracked ice in a collins glass. Decorate with a strawberry or cherry and serve.


Ok, ok, so it's not tropical, but we drank it without complaint just the same.

"Zombie and what the heck did I have?"

Kris had a Zombie and i had a Day at the Beach. This was in the Honolulu airport United Gate 8 Bar. Whoooo eeeeee!

1/2 oz Bacardi® 151 rum
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1/2 oz apricot brandy
1 tsp sugar
2 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz lime juice

Blend all ingredients with ice except Bacardi 151 proof rum. Pour into a collins glass. Float Bacardi 151 proof rum on top. Garnish with a fruit slice, sprig of mint and a cherry.

A Day At The Beach:
1 oz coconut rum
1/2 oz amaretto almond liqueur
4 oz orange juice
1/2 oz grenadine syrup

Shake rum, amaretto, and orange juice in a shaker filled with ice. Strain into a highball glass over ice. Add grenadine and garnish with a pineapple wedge and a strawberry.

"The one that got away"

This particular "little" number was the one that got away or is I ran away? Either way I have no idea what this one contains but I do know you can find it at the Big Kahuna cafe in Waikiki.

Update straight from the menu of the Big Kahuna: "Da Fish Bowl
We don't call it 'da Fish Bowl' for nothing. It actually comes in a fish bowl! Big enough for up to four people to share, a refreshing blend of three kinds of rum, blue curacao, and peach schnapps. You can't get this one anywhere else!"

My advice: "Run, as fast as you can in any direction away from the fishbowl!"


After all that Hawaiian hospitality the place that can really make you feel good is the Kimo Bean Coffee Company in the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
I brought home several bags of Kauai and Maui blends. They have something for everyone!

Located at Kailuani and Kalakua Streets, downtown Honolulu.

**Update: 2007: Kimo Bean has another location now in the lobby of the Wyland Hotel corner of Royal Hawaiian Avenue and Kuhio streets across from the DFS and IHOP

Hey there...hope you have an awesome honeymoon.

Sue & I will be in Honolulu in September & October. We have booked a day stop on our way to Vancouver at The Wyland Waikiki:

Then 4 weeks later we have 3 nights at Ohana Waikiki West:

Both are reasonable priced and look good on their respective web sites. They are also in great locations. Both in Waikiki and walking distance to the beach. The International Market Place is also nearby.

Worth checking out dont you think? :-)

Luggage storage after cruise?

by dukeman05

We will be going on a cruise out of honolulu and when we get off of the ship we need a place to store our luggage for the day. We get off the ship in the morning and our flight is not until 10pm. We would like to go sightseeing or do something that day. But what do we do with our luggage?

Re: Luggage storage after cruise?

by 2Cities1Love

Just to let you know that we checked out the exact same thing....we have a Honolulu stopover on our way to Vancouver (on our way TO a cruise lol) and checked the Honolulu Airport site and they specifically state they do not provide storage facilities. Others suggested some lockers at a local shopping centre but I am guessing these would not be able to accommodate suitcases.

We arrive at 7.45am and leave at 10pm and after all night flying we decided to book a room at the Wyland Waikiki. They do day rates from USD$100 which is good. So thats what we are doing. WE can have a shower and a sleep if need be and go for a wander around Waikiki.

Re: Luggage storage after cruise?

by 2Cities1Love


I am not sure anyone said anything about walking til 10pm LOL

Re: Luggage storage after cruise?

by travelgourmet

Sue, he's gone. To the point, do not rent a car and leave the luggage in the trunk and then go sightseeing. Many eyes will be watching rental cars trunks to break end and ruin the Aloha spirit. Do as suggested, go to a hotel for the night. Call the one you want to stay in and let them know that you would like to check in after your ship docks approximate time about 2 hours after docking and would check out about 2 1/2 hours before your flight time. If not crowded, they will do this because you are leaving at about 7:30 pm. They can still have your room for the late arrivals to Oahu. Now, you can keep your luggage safe in the hotel, maybe even a shuttle ride from the dock to the hotel and to the airport, as well as see a little of Waikiki and enjoy a meal and a nap before saying Aloha to Hawaii.

Honolulu Stopover

by 2Cities1Love

Hi everyone :-)

We have an all day stopover in Honolulu on our way to Vancover in September.
(arrive 7.45am Saturday morning & depart 10.10pm Saturday night).

Have just checked out the Honolulu Airport web site and says:

"Due to Security, Locker Storage is not available. We will not answer any e-mail regarding where you can store your luggage. The airport does not have this facility. You must ask the airline you are flying on if they can store it for you".

Anyone have any ideas what we can do for luggage storage in Honolulu so that we can go and sightsee and not have to worry?

Col & Sue

Re: Honolulu Stopover

by 2Cities1Love

Good idea, thanks for that, really appreciate it.

Re: Honolulu Stopover

by 2Cities1Love

Great idea, thanks for that, really appreciate it. Will look in to it now.

Re: Honolulu Stopover

by Hopkid

I totally agree with W.E.L. You only have a few hours so you don't want to waste time waiting for and sitting in public transit. Get a car for the day!

Re: Honolulu Stopover

by Onedragon

You might want to travel by bus..It is 2 dollars which includes a tranfer...???? and the Luggage.....
Depending on how big the luggage is ..At the Ala Moana Shopping Center there are lockers for public use..If you don't have a vehicle to put personal belongings in, use an Ala Moana locker. Lockers are available next to the main restrooms on the street level. Please hold onto the paper that the automated machine provides; it includes a number code that you need to use in order to open your locker.

Re: Honolulu Stopover

by 2Cities1Love

Thanks for everyone's help here. Really appreciated.

Just one other thing......if we need a shower, does anyone know where we could go do that? After I have travelled all the way from Perth I think I will need one lol

Thanks again.

Re: Honolulu Stopover

by Onedragon

Hi I think they have or use to have showers at the Airport... If you can't find one there.. There are plenty of showers at the Beaches.. : ) Just Joking..But it is an idea !!

Re: Honolulu Stopover

by 2Cities1Love

Thanks for everyones input. :-)

We have decided that since it will be over 24 hours from the time I leave Perth, fly to Melbourne to meet Sue, then fly to Sydney and then reach Honolulu, that we will be in need of some rest before flying on to Vancouver. From there we have 3 ultra full days of sightseeing before our Alaska cruise.

So after much searching found that the Wyland Waikiki will allow us to check in just for the day at a very reasonable rate. A nice shower and a sleep and perhaps a quick look around Waikiki to freshen us up for awesome trip ahead.
