Hilton Hawaiian Village

This is a great hotel on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. It has some 90 stores, 20 restaurants and lounges, a few swimming pools, even penguins and turtles... The hotel has guided tours, beach activities,

It has six main towers with rooms, and most of the rooms have an ocean view in one direction or another. Rooms in the towers away from the water start at a reasonable $200 but go on up to $1500 a night or more for suites on the water. In total there are some 3,400 rooms, making this a massive hotel, but the design and the natural beauty certainly make it feel smaller.

It is within a 10-20 minute walk of Honolulu's main tourist area along Waikiki Beach.

Hawaii Dynasty Hotel & Kalia Hotel: Not Suffering at All

Actually, I cannot remember too much about either of the hotels that we had booked for our trips. However, they both certainly met our needs and were well situated along the coast in Honolulu. One thing that did blow my mind on the first trip was when we were watching a TV program in our room to keep the kids happy (I always blame them!). We had been in PNG for 2 years by then, and there was no broadcast TV in the country. So, my first TV program in 2 years - and what comes on on? A re-run that I had seen in some distant past life. I had a really good laugh at what that says about Western civilization! However, we did have a great Easter weekend with the children in our hotel room!

From the Aston Hotel: The Famous Rainbow..

My first morning in Hawaii, I woke and came out on the balcony, and right there before my eyes, the famous Rainbow... I stood watching too long, and almost missed getting a photo. It looked much better than this pic shows.

Moana Hotel in 1953

Here I am sitting on the beach at Waikiki in front of the Moana Hotel in 1953. I understand the hotel is still there. You can see a part of the famous Moana Banyan tree in the photo.

General hints on lodging in Honolulu

I do not want to make a specific lodging recommendation. We stayed in one of the many, many hotels in Waikiki. I will let people that have stayed at more than one give you hotel recommendations.

However, I do have a recommendation. We intended to save a little money by paying for a kitchenette. We paid something like 10% more for the hotel package in hopes of saving some $ on meals. The problem when we arrived at our hotel is that our expectation of a kitchenette and our hotel's were quite different. They defined a kitchenette as a room with a sink and a dinky microwave oven - no element or oven. Moral of the story - confirm exactly what you are getting if you wish a kitchenette.

We met a family from another hotel than ours who had a true kitchen in their room and access to a BBQ.

Sheraton Moana Surfrider...

Sheraton Moana Surfrider Hotel (click the link for photos in travelogue, details later)

The First Lady of Waikiki, the grand hotel debuted in 1906.
See their website for details. One can get a discount rate by 1) using online booking service; or 2) becoming a Starwood member.

Right in front of the ocean. The courtyard covered by ONE big banyan tree is a place to hang around days and nights.

See travelogue for details.

The Hale Koa was remarkable. Beautiful view, right on the beach, gym, 2 restaurants and a cantina enroute to the beach, salon, bank, and a beautiful botanical garden enroute to the beach after the cantina.
The rates depend on the view you get. The better view of the ocean you have the more money you pay. I had a moderate view and it was $60 a night for a single room.

One weird thing about hotels...

One weird thing about hotels in Hawaii (at least fro the one tha ti stayed in) is that all of their bell staff are senior citizen. Therefore, don't get awkward when an old fello try to help u with ur bags.
By the way i recommend the Outriggered Reef Hotel on Waikiki Beach. It has fabulous breakfast buffet.

Great breakfast buffet on the terrance overlooking the beach.
