Welcome to Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel!
Why be near the action when you can be a part of it? Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel exudes a hip Hawaiian sense of place just across Kalakaua Avenue from a prime stretch of legendary Waikiki Beach. This casual, contemporary hotel lets you hang loose with its modern resort atmosphere - from the colorful surfboard-studded lobby with complimentary WiFi access to its retro Tiki’s Grill & Bar.
Designed with naturally inspired decor, newly refreshed comfortable guest rooms and suites have cool touches and conveniences like mini-refrigerators and large flat-screen TVs. Most open to full or partial ocean views, while most feature private lanais (balconies) where you can soak up the scenery that defines this dynamic destination.
For the most exceptional views opt for an Aston Select Room. Aside from premium sweeping vistas, these select Oceanfront and Ocean View retreats indulge with an arrival amenity of Hawaii-made treats personally selected by the hotel’s general manager.

Pretty good hotel
The Aston is in a good spot in Waikiki over the road from a decent part of the beach - good for kids and not as busy as Waikiki Beach. For the price I paid, I think the hotel is great value. I also appreciated that they only charged us 6 nights not 7 even though we did not cancel the first night on time - they waived this due to our plane being struck by lightning on the way and therefore having to turn around and delay our holiday by one day. The beach chairs are big and heavy so taking them over to the beach was a bit of a pain. The pool is decent and we were always able to get chairs. The rooms were decent, clean and comfortable. We had the Coconut Club included - We booked a great deal on Black Friday for this hotel so got the Coconut Club at almost the same price as a standard "room only" deal - so therefore I feel I should not complain too much about it, but if I had to pay more than I did, I would be VERY disappointed. The view and the actual room the club is in are great. The breakfast and evening food are just ok, we stayed 6 nights and I was so sick of looking at the same food each day we hardly ate there, we just had a coffee at night most of time and really just went for the views. The drinks they provide are sweet and sickly - I didn't mind having one or two but my husband didn't like them at all. The ice cream ran out a couple of times, so my son missed out on that when he was really looking forward to it. The fruit (strawberries) to add to yogurt was cut up so fine it was mushy, however this is all I ended up eating for breakfast every day as nothing else appealed to me. So unless you can get an amazing deal for the Coconut Club, don't do it, or if you are staying for a week, book it once maybe (even then you really don't need to). My suggestion to the hotel would be to have better quality food and serve nicer drinks - I would happily pay more for this. You have a great spot that could be so much better.
Thank you Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel for a fun, memorable stay!
Our family (husband, wife and 5 kids) loved our stay at Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel from May 31 to June 4, 2019. Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel is a comfortable and welcoming beach-front hotel in a fantastic location. The staff is helpful and friendly. Our family enjoyed several meals at Wolfgang Puck Express, situated at the hotel’s ground floor. And since we were billeted at the 24th floor, and the hotel is facing the beach, the views, especially of the sunset, were awesome! Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel’s location is great! Just across the street is the world-famous Waikiki Beach, so it was the easiest thing to cross the street and enjoy Waikiki Beach at any time. A short walk away is Royal Hawaiian Center, with its food court and shops for dining and shopping pleasure. Many other restaurants are walking distance, such as Eggs N’ Things and McDonald’s (a must if you have five kids). A block away is St. Augustine by the Sea (Catholic) Church, where our family attended Sunday Mass. Thank you Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel for a fun, memorable stay! (Apologies for the delay in writing out this review. After a busy 2019, we are now all staying at home due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Our prayers for everyone’s good health, safety and well-being, including the hotel staff and employees. We look forward to the time when we can all safely travel again and enjoy the hospitality of good hotels like this one.)
For me and my family I loved the location. It is on the edge of the strip bordered by the beach in front and the zoo on one side. I did not pay extra for the ocean view but still had a fabulous view of the beach. The safe was pleasant and helpful. If you are looking for a comfortable but more barebones hotel this is a great option.
Shout Out To Service Desk Team
I can't say enough about Hedwyne and Jeanette!! Truly 5 star service because of these two! Hedwyne handled some issues early on flawlessly and I could not have appreciated it more! Because of Jeanette recommending the Coconut Club, it made our stay much more enjoyable! I hope these two AMAZING Team members get recognized for there OUTSTANDING customer service. Also a shout out to the hotel in general and the rest of the Team who helped make this experience as wonderful as possible! We left halfway through our trip because of Hawaii's governor shutting things down. I was DREADING asking for a refund on our prepaid trip. The hotel refunded our remaining balance no questions asked! It was FAR beyond what I expected! Thank you Aston Team and Hedwyne and Jeanette!!!
Great hotel if you have the right room
This is my 2nd stay at this hotel, both times in oceanfront rooms. Gorgeous view and nice location at a decent nightly rate (but do remember to include the resort fee). Some commenters have mentioned the need for room refurbishment, but that didn’t bother me much. The furniture is okay, and room is very clean. My problem is that the street noise and live music at Tiki’s are LOUD. My room was on the 8th floor. The musician played until 11pm, which isn’t unusual for bars and restaurants... except my east coast body clock wanted to sleep at 9pm. The street noise and urban campers across the street did not quiet down when the music stopped. I was awaken to yelling and banging multiple times each night. A trade off for the view of the Waikiki beach and sunset. The staff here is wonderful, and I will probably stay here again, but next time I will definitely request a very high floor.
