The Aston Waikiki Grand

by written on August 25, 2002

A room with an ocean view was $77 + tax per night in June / July.

Unique Quality: I stayed at this hotel the last two times I went to Oahu. The first time, because it seemed like a good cheap deal. The second time because as well as being a cheap deal I knew that I'd get a room with a fantastic panoramic view of Diamond Head.

It's half a block from the beach but you're right at the end of the strip so there's a great view of the Diamond Head tuff cone from the rooms ('ocean view' rooms as opposed to 'city view' room - this gets you a fabulous view of the side of another hotel).

There's an outdoor pool on the ground floor which you'll probably never use, and I think there's laundry facilities on the 3rd floor. Foodwise, there's nothing but the Jack-in-the-Box restaurant that's integral to the hotel, but that's no big deal. The hotel bar is also a well-known gay bar, so most people won't be going there either.

The hotel does have it's own parking (entrance round the back on Lemon Street), but at $8 a day it's pricey. My advice is take your car a couple of blocks away to the Waikiki Banyan hotel, which has a large 24-hour multi-story parking garage with full-time security, for the princely sum of $5 a day.

Rooms are basic, but since you came to Waikiki to be out in the sun, they are more than enough for what you need. A bed, a TV, phone, fridge, safe (for an extra $2.60 a day), en suite bathroom, telephone and balcony is what you get for your $77 a night plus tax.

You're within 3 minutes walk of three different ABC convenience stores, which sell pretty much everything you want, including postcards, stamps, underwater cameras, candy, cold drinks, beer, snacks, sandwiches etc etc and also have ATM machines. Just down the road is Dennys for those early morning pancakes and maple syrup, and of course, a Starbucks. Across the street is the Waikiki Zoo, with a large meter parking lot, and not too far away is the Aquarium.

There's also very easy access to the H1 'interstate', although the road system can be a little complex. Make sure you have a map.
