Pacific Beach Hotel: Largest indoor aquarium!
My family and I have stayed at this hotel four out of six visits to Honolulu, Hawaii. The Oceanarium Tower has the largest indoor "aquarium" in the states! This aquarium is 3-story's tall, and holds 280,000 gallons. It is full of all species of Hawaiian fish. In the Oceanarium Restaurant, it is buffet style.
The Pacific Beach Hotel is located right across the street from Waikiki Beach and across the street from Cheeseburger in Paradise.
The hotel has two towers. The Beach Tower and the Oceanarium Tower. It has a swimming pool and a hot tub located outside of the fourth floor and near the laundry facilities. There is also at this hotel a 24hr fitness gym, and also a spa.
In each room of the hotel, you will have either two double beds, or a king sized bed whichever suits your needs.
For really good views, in the Oceanarium Tower, get a room facing Diamond Head at least the 12th floor or higher.
There is parking facilities at this hotel. I would recommend this hotel to families, couples, etc. We have throughly enjoyed this hotel.
The views in the rooms in the Oceanarium Tower: Facing Diamond Head (12th floor and up), city view/mountainview. And Oceanview rooms in the Beach Tower.

ResortQuest Waikiki Beach: Great Hotel across from Waikiki Beach
The ResortQuest Waikiki Beach hotel is located on the Diamondhead end of Waikiki Beach, and is directly across the street from the beach itself. The decor of the hotel is "tiki-esque," lots of bamboo, surfboards and bright colors. A little funky, but that's our style. The staff was fantastic, room was clean, free breakfast every morning, and everything in Waikiki is walkable from the hotel. The quality of the hotel, and friendliness of the staff was spectacular and we will stay here again on our next trip to Oahu!
Directly across from Waikiki Beach, most rooms have at least partial Ocean views, small pool, free breakfast, Tiki's Bar and Grill on the hotels first floor has good food, and excellent drinks.

Royal Grove Hotel: Apartment Style
This hotel is located on the corner of Uluniu and Kuhio Ave which is near the Duke Statue end of Waikiki...it is only 2 blocks from the beach. This is an apartment style hotel so each room has own bathroom and kitchenette...good for families and groups of up to 4 travelling together...reception is 24hrs no curfew...Prices range from $50 per night to $80 per night...we stayed in a standard room which is like a studio with 2 beds, bathroom, kitchenette and a balcony which wraps around one corner of the room so you have a view of the pool area and also Uluniu Ave (good for sightseeing everyone walking past...) I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget if you are not used to hostels...the staff are friendly and helpful...there is a 7/11 type shop right next to the hotel, a korean takeaway next to this and then next to this a really good cafe called the coconut cafe...

Hokondo Waikiki Beachside Hostel: Hosteling in Hawaii. Walking to the beach
I stayed in this hostel in early November 2006 on the way to Canada. The hostel is very busy with heaps of young people coming over on trips to check out the surfing conditions, and to party.
The hostel is easy to reach by Airport Shuttle and they will pick up outside the door.
The location of the hostel is good. Only a short 5 minute walk to the beach. You can't get any closer really. You are surrounded by tall hotel buildings.
The staff were magnificent. They directed up perfectly on where to catch a bus, how to get places, and also with extraordinary circumstances.
One negative I do wish to point out though is to do with Wireless Internet. They may advertise this feature on their website, but it was false. They were relying on some tourism board internet service which never worked or was totally blocked. Staff were suggesting yo just try getting signal from the unsecure hotels webs nearby but even this did not work. They did not have their own wireless network to which you log into.
The bed cost $25 per night after tax.
The Hostel is set up with different size rooms. The regular dorms are 8 people to the room, with 4 people in a front section, and the other 4 in a back room. You can clearly see the hostel was made from what was a gutted 2 star hotel from the 50's or 60's.
They kept the kitchens in each of the rooms, so every room has its own cook top, and fridge. The supply of plates, cutlery and pans though can involve a search of other rooms.
Downstairs is a decent internet cafe, which is in fact frequented by persons from the other hostel nearby. It's not cheap though at a something like $5 for the hour.
There is also a large table area for just chilling, playing cards and other things which they also use as a breakfast area. The free breakfast is nearly non-existent and worth skipping.
There is also a big TV set up downstairs with couches around, but really noone should be spending time in front of a TV when in Hawaii.

Hale Koa Military Resort Hotel: Oahu's Military Secrets
If you are an active or retired military or a Department of Defense Civilian, the Hale Koa Military Resort Hotel and Recreation Center is one of the best places to stay in Waikiki. It is located on Fort DeRussy, a 66 acre piece of beach front real estate smack in the middle of Waikiki adjacent to the Hiliton Hawaiian Resort and Spa.

Ohana Maile Sky Court: Hotel was not that great
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights during Nov 2005. We paid for a kitchenette that was supposed to be a Queen or two twin beds. I phoned ahead to ask for a Queen bed and they said that was not a problem. When we arrived and were given a room with the twin beds, they told us that the housekeeping service had no problem with pushing the two beds together -- that NEVER happened. They offered to switch our room when one became available, but a non-smoking Queen room never became available to us.
The best part about this hotel was its location. It was only 3-4 blocks from the Waikiki beach so each day we just walked to get to the beach.
The worst part about this hotel was the killer elevator! For the duration of our stay about 1-2 of the express elevators (out of 6) were broken. On the last day when we went to check out of the hotel and get our car, we had all of bags with us. First we had to wait a long time (more than 15 minutes) for an elevator to even come to our floor. Then when we got on we rode down to the parking garage and when we went to get out of the elevator, 1/2 way through getting out the elevator got a mind of its own and started closing on my body and bags! It almost crushed me and it took several of the other passengers to force the doors back open.
For the price we paid for this hotel I guess it was worth it since it was so cheap and we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The view from the room was decent (the high rises and the beach).

hyatt regency waikiki: deluxe, reliable, and good staff
Room NO. 4065 suite room according to my statement of bill stayed on January 7, 2005.
It was a very very good room. One twin bed room and one bed room. each room has bath room. It has a large dining table room and small buisiness center with new fax machine.
The room is totally renewed. So everything is new. And like the room of top class business men. It was for me like a new year present.
I want to stay again in the same room.
Great view of Diamond head and the Pacific Ocean. Relaxing in the seat of long veranda and breathing a good air and feeling Waikiki, you will have a good inspiration.
The club lounge is very good.
Lamentably no photo taken.

Sheraton Princess Kaulani Hotel: Sheraton Princess Kaulani Hotel
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the start of our 'around the world' trip...we knew it would be one of the nicer (if not the nicest) place we'd stay on our trip. Luckily we got it at a very discounted rate. ;)
The hotel is fairly nice and is in a good location. They have a big pool, restaurants/cafes and big rooms. It is right near the International Marketplace too and not far from Waikiki Beach...

HILTON HAWAIIAN VILLAGE BEACH RESORT: HAWAIIAN VILLAGE --- EXOTIC WILDLIFE
Throughout the Hilton Hawaiian Village, you will find many EXOTIC WILDLIFE. Right near our Ali'i Tower there was the turtle and penguin pond. These little creatures were so fun to watch as they wobbled around their compound of sand, rocks and pools.Then there was the area of the African Lesser Flamingo and the Sacred Ibis, majestic birds and I loved the vibrant pink of the flamingoes. Two beautiful parrots, one blue and yellow, the other red and yellow were always entertaining as you passed by them sitting on their perches.There were majestic white and black swans wandering throughout the premises. Also the ponds were filled with white, red and yellow colored Koi fish.
