    Loved it!!!

    This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed. We got the beach front view room which was amazing. Staff up front was very helpful and everything was well organized. Trang Ly the room manager was a pleasure to talk to. She helped accommodate us into our room and gave amazing suggestions on food to try. I definite would come back and recommend others to stay here during their visit in Honolulu.

    In need of some upgrades

    All in all, our stay was fine. Nothing exceptional, nothing terrible. I booked a partial view king room primarily with credit card points, and I would have been disappointed if I’d paid out of pocket for it. The room was in need of some TLC — scuffs and dings on the walls and furniture, drab carpet, etc. The pool is nice but they are really low on chairs (maybe there are more during non Covid times, but it was impossible to get one on our trip). Pool service is good and cocktails are nice and strong at the pool bar. The gym is nice and has a ton of equipment beyond your usual hotel gym. Service throughout the hotel was friendly, though you can tell they are short staffed — some long wait times to speak to the front desk or get items delivered to the room. Location is great and a short walk to the beach, but even on the 14th floor we heard street noise below (which is probably common for most hotels in this area).

    Best vacation ever

    I had the best time in Honolulu thanks to Alohilani!! Trang Ly and her crews were on top of their work. I requested a microwave for my room and the staff brought it up in less than 10 minutes, literally!! The room is super clean and the ocean front view is just amazing. Not to mention there are plenty of activities to do inside of the hotel. My favorite is the rooftop bar and their infinity pool! Thank you Alohilani for the best vacation ever. I will definitely be back

    Vibrant new vibe

    I was debating between staying at Alohilani and Roay hwaiian ( both on Waikik beach) I am glad I chose Alohilani- they were beautiful. I had access to their Longboard club and when I told them we were vegan , they made special meals for us. their pool deck was beautiful. I loved their Hula class, and of course it is on the main Waikik beach area - so a very nice city feel with the beach across the street. the only BAD thing I would say - is they did not have information on our travel -as we went to maui later and had to go back to Honolulu for a COVID test - we feel , the hotel concierge should have had that info- also the concierge was nor helpful at all - as HAnuama bay was giving out tickets to visit and our concierge did not tell us - we couldnt visit Hanuama bay

    Amazing! Don’t want to leave

    Thank you so much for such a fun time and shout out to Trang Ly - Rooms manager. Checking in was a breeze and I felt really welcomed. The room was clean, spacious and view was breath taking. Trang Ly was amazing, very tentative and caring, always checking on us for our needs. Requesting for room service and even asking for a microwave was so easy. Did not want to leave at all 🥲. Highly recommend this place for anyone who is going to visit Hawaii. Will definitely come back in the near future. Can’t ask for a better place to stay! Mahalo ❤
