Hyatt Regency Waikiki: twin tower on the beach
This hotel serves you with great views of Southern Pacific ocean when you had a room on the southern side, while you will find the mountain views are great, too if you had a room on the northern side. You don't have to be worry you will have a view of the Diamond Head on the east side or other hotels and the shops on the Waikiki beach line on the west side.

Hale Koa: Hale Koa Military Hotel
The Hale Koa is the place to stay if you are in the military. It is on the best and widest part of Waikiki beach. The service and rooms are fantastic! Reserve way in advance!
They have a great Luau! It isn't all you can eat, but it is reasonably priced and is a great show. Also, great location to see Fireworks from Hilton next door. Shop for your souveniers in the PX, which is less expensive then other shops on Oahu. Price of room depends on rank.

Kahala Mandarin Oriental: Away from the croud.
First class from the moment we arrived. Everybody was great. Great location if you want to get away from all the noise.
Great service. Away from Waikiki Beach and all the traffic and people. We loved it here!

Marriott Waikiki Beach: A Beach AND Two Outdoor Pools
While it's on 'hotel row,' on the beach, we had absolutely no complaints about the accommodations or service. Get a room on the corner, if you can, so you can have two decks--we were in room 705--with chairs and a little snack table on each. There are no buildings in front, which guarantees beautiful sunset views.
A protected/life-guarded beach is right in front. You can rent time under an umbrella if you want cover. Surfing instructor/rental stands are like a two-minute walk from there. My surfing lesson was $35--first hour with an instructor, the second for my own practice. GREAT fun, 'cept that closer to the beach, swimmers and boogie boarders make navigation a bit difficult unless you choose to surf early in the morning. Surfboard rentals, without instruction, ran $8/hour or $10 for two hours.
"Boogie" boards for body surfing are inexpensive to buy (although I hear they can get spendy)--about $20, plus another $18 for fins if you want. Waikiki Beach is better for regular surfing, though, I think.
Hey! Good movies are shown, free, every weekend about a five minute walk down the beach! You sit on the beach, or bring a lawn chair. It's really cool, and I found the sound pretty good. "A Beautiful Mind" was shown on the Sunday before we left. Hit the Haagen Dazs a few blocks away, before you head down there to sit back for the movie....
A one-minute walk to the beach (gotta cross the street)! Two outdoor swimming pools on the third floor, plus an exercise spa (never did get to the latter, though). Parking garage. Great business center. I had trouble with WebTV and an engineer promptly came up for a service call.
Nice restaurant on site (Kuhio Grill) with a good breakfast buffet. (Heard tell that the onion soup at dinner was excellent. I passed that up in favor of the seared ahi salad, which was scrumptious.) Coffee stands and snack bars where convenient, plus a nice bar/eatery on the 3rd floor outdoors--where they had nightly Hawaiian music. (We were treated to a performance by an older gentleman who wrote some traditional Hawaiian songs.)

Ala Moana Hotel: Right Next to the Ala Moana Shopping Centre
On my first visit to Hawaii where I spent a week there on a return from the UK, I stayed at the Ala Moana Hotel which is right inbetween Waikiki and downtown Honolulu. Attached to the hotel is the big Ala Moana Shopping centre which has some 200 stores and restaurants, which is really convenient. It has all the usual great Hawaiian flavoured bars and restaurants. You can get a nice views as well, either mountain or ocean.

Ohana Waikiki Tower: Right Opposite The Beach
Ohana Waikiki Tower (Formerly the Outrigger Waikiki Tower) - 9 miles from Honolulu International Airport, 2 mins walk to the beach and a short stroll to the Royal Hawaiian shopping village. The upper floors had a view of Diamond Head. Because of our lengthy stay, we had a junior suite which had its own kitchenette and separate lounge area.
There is a restaurant in a relaxed polynesian setting with a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. I also enjoyed many of 'the longest happy hour in Waikiki' there. There is daily entertainment. Every evening in the early evening there was a guitarist sitting in the garden setting playing. Our suite was on the first floor overlooking the garden where he played and it was just lovely.

Campgrounds around Oahu Island: Camping the Island
Each beach has a different character, as well as different characteristics of surf and weather throughout the year. It could be fun to plan a trip that would gradually move the camper around the entire island.
Because of Oahu Island geographical location, the climate varies with average temperatures from 72°F to 79°F, with lowest 48°F and highest 95°F. It is perfect for outdoor Adventures and activities all year long.
With 50 beaches and 3 mountains, Oahu Island provides visitors and residents opportunities to enjoy all kinds of water sports, including Sailing, Diving, Snorkeling, Surfing, Windsurfing, and Deep-Sea Fishing. Other sport activities include golf, tennis, camping and hiking.
Oahu Island has several campgrounds managed by Hawaii State and Honolulu County. Most camp sites are located in public beach parks.
All of the county beach parks have bathrooms, showers, drinking water and garbage disposal sites. No campfires are allowed, but cooking is allowed on grills (which the camper must provide) or portable stoves.
Great link to camping
