i know its dirty and cheap, but that was my first night and first morning in Honolulu, and it was great. I paid 55 usd (breakfast included)
Unique Quality: Great view from Pagoda tower
This hotel was one of the reasons why we has such a great stay in Hawaii. The staff is great, the area is beautiful, walking distance from the beach, etc.
My partner and I are thiking about a trip to Honolulu in Novemember/December. Is the weather warm although it's heading in to Americas's winter? Also we are looking at budget accommodation in Waikiki, however walking distance to beach, food, restaurants, bars, markets, shopping etc. Any suggestions?
Those dreaded Hawaiian winters are miserable
You may want a sweater or light jacket for evenings.
Aloha! It's hot here now, in the 80's with no winds. Nov./Dec. should be very pleasant, with maybe some rain but it will clear up and the sun will shine. Yes, a light jacket or sweater for night would suffice. The weather in Hawaii doesn't fluctuate much, just a little more rain and a few degrees cooler in the winter. Make sure to use sun screen so you won't look like a cooked lobster.
There are several small hotels in Waikiki, but I haven't stayed in any of them. Best to do internet searches. The Pagoda Hotel is two blocks from Ala Moana Beach Park, which is just outside of Waikiki, and is where the locals go. It's walking distance to Waikiki from there. The far edge of Magic Island (at the park) is one of the prettiest places to just sit and enjoy Hawaii. The Pagoda Hotel is also one block from the largest shopping center in the state, the Ala Moana Shopping Center. Lots of food, shopping, bars, etc.
If you have a car, or don't mind taking a bus, check out the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet held every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday (unless there's a sports event). It's rows and rows of vendors, most who sell at wholesale prices. It's located near Pearl Harbor, so if you're going there, go on a day when the Swap Meet is in session (mornings through about 1 pm only).
