                I liiked the way the staff responded to my request. I could not find the tv remote and in a few minutes after calling they sent a new one with the repair man in case i had other problems with the tv

                no I can not think of any thing i did not like

                I love how nice the rooms were and how soft the beds were to sleep in they were so comfotable. After a long 9 hour flight it was nice to sleep in a soft bed with nice soft pillows. The resturant food was excellent both for dinner and brakefast. If I came back to Honolulu I would stay with your hotel again. Best hotel I have stayed in in a long time.

                The soft beds and soft pillows and the great food at the resturant.

                Cleanliness of room and size of room. Comfortable mattress

                Put in room 616 at end of long hallway opposite cleaners room and very noisy drink machines! There was no blanket or doona on the bed and the air conditioning unit was outdated. So I could not adjust to low or medium therefore it blew very strong cold air out all night and the temperature was set. It was also very loud. I asked a housekeeping staff member for help but she couldn't change it either. I had to wear my mountain jacket to bed. Yes, I had no sleep as a consequence. Very unhappy about this experience.

                Hotel room was comfortable

                Staff were very unfriendly. They blocked my phone even though I wanted to make a local call... I had my credit card details with them, but they claim I dont so they refused to open my phone line. The hotel is situated by the airport in the industrial zone, their restaurant was under repair and they didnt say that on their website, unfortunately,the hotel staff were not helpful in directing me to avaible restaurants in the neighborhood.

                room very clean, well appointed.

                only thing not great was traffic noise from Nimitz- very loud even from 7th floor on recent (weekend) evening.

                Spacious room and convenient airport shuttle. Call the hotel from the airport arrival free phone after collecting baggage

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                We stayed one night on arrival at Honolulu before flying on to Maui (23 hours of travelling by that point), and we stayed for one night on our return home (our flight was very early am). Loved the free shuttle to and from the airport, loved the free internet access and the free local calls (great to confirm tours). Food in the restaurant was excellent and value for money. Staff throughout were so friendly and helpful

                Personally, there is nothing we didn't like, but it's not ideal for a touring base. We used it to break up the travelling and it's really great for that

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Very convenient to the airport, Pearl Harbor, USS Misouri, Paciic Air Museum, Aloha Stadium. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant offered a great breakfast.

                The hotel is, literally, just across two lanes of street from the elevated H-1 Interstate. The room they had planned for us was on the corner just across from the H-1 and very noisy. Fortunately, they had a room further back from the H-1 that was slightly less noisy. Had to pay $20 a night for parking - in addition to the room rate; but we knew that in advance. Still thought it somewhat extreme.

                Location is the only plus of this hotel. Very close to the airport with a convenient bus service to/from the Honolulu airport.

                Room still to be cleaned when we arrived (9.30pm). The place is not only noisy, it's right next to the freeway. It is like sleeping in a very busy steel factory.

                We were looking for convenience and this place filled the bill. The shuttle from the airport was a necessity. Look on the reader board of the front of the shuttle bus or you might get on the wrong van. The restaurant was very convenient for breakfast. The gift shop was pretty classy. Look up in the lobby to appreciate the ceiling murals.

                Unfortunately, nothing can be done about the highway noise when you are in the pool area or anywhere outside. It wasn't bad in the room and did not keep us awake. There is nothing really around to walk to except a drive-in burger joint and a gas station-mini mart. We were only stopping here to wait for our inter-island flight. Not a good vacation place.

                This is my second stay at this hotel and both times the staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms are nice and clean & comfortable. The location is perfect for going to either side of the island (east or west), if was affordable & comparable in price if not better for a nicer room.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                The convenience of the hotel to the airport.

                The noise due to the proximity of the expressway. Also the shampoo and other amenities could be better.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Free Airport shuttle. The staff was very good with what they had to work with.

                They lost the reservation from Booked.net. Then said that Booked.net did not send it to them even though we booked it two days in advance. They did honor the paper printout we showed them. Good thing they had rooms available. The location was the worst, under the freeway. Still, we needed a room for the night between flights, because our schedule was all messed up by the winter storm in CT, NJ, etc.

                7.4

                The location adjacent to Honolulu airport was great and what I needed as was the regular shuttle service to and from the terminal

                I had a room at the front of the hotel next to the freeway and the traffic noise was substantial. The cafe had a buffet but if you did not want that a fairly limited menu.

                Staff/employees are friendly, helpfull when in need of questions, location is perfect
