Hotel overview

Surfing was cultivated in our backyard and the lifestyle it embodies is central to who we are. Waikiki is famous for its beautiful beaches and we’re steps away from them. But you’ll be just as drawn to the timeless charm and laid-back vibe as the The Twin Fin Hotel welcomes you here.

We’re a retreat. A place to relax and take in the beauty of Waikiki’s iconic sights and rolling swells, from sunrise to sunset. We’re a gathering place to connect with others and share memorable, meaningful moments. We’re a hub for discovering local music, art, and a lasting connection with our island community. And with stunning, front-row views of Waikiki Beach, we’re a place to reflect on the events of the day. And plan the adventures that lie ahead.

    The New Twin Fin is Fantastic!

    We have stayed and loved this property before as the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel and equally loved it as the Twin Fin. Whenever we come back to this property we feel as if we are treated as family. This trip, our stay was for six weeks. Everything and everyone met or exceeded our expectations. Beginning with check in. The front desk crew, especially Nicole was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast crew up in the Coconut Room always started our day with a smile. Gloria and Cheville were always so much fun to talk with and we looked forward to seeing them every morning. Melanie and the rest of the breakfast crew always made sure we were happy with everything. Our housekeeper Marietta, Randy & Dely from parking, along with the crew from Beach Candy rounded out our great experience. Thanks to the management team. Randy, Cody, Gloria and Jeanine who always took the time to make us feel welcome. Lastly, a very special thank you to Lillian and Ika for overseeing all the details to make our stay so special. We appreciate all the kindness.

    Great location

    We stayed in The Twin Fin for one week. The location is great: close to the busy Waikiki tourist area as well as the nice quiet local beach park. Our oceanfront room is great. The room is very clean. The breakfast is excellent!

    Family Fun!

    My family enjoyed our stay at the Twin Fin and all the staff was friendly. Beautiful views from the room. Our little ones had fun at the pool and lounging in the cabanas. The breakfast at the Coconut Club had a delicious selection for everyone in our family. The young ones enjoyed the acai bowls and the boys had the loco moco and breakfast burrittos. Breakfast staff very friendly and welcoming. And you can't beat the view from the 21st floor at Coconut Club!!! What a wonderful way to start the day.

    The elevator system is a disaster. The hotel texted during my stay asking for a review. I shared that the elevator system in particular makes the stay very frustrating. They responded that they had higher than normal elevator traffic and that it would improve. But that’s not the complaint necessarily, I could see the system couldn’t handle the number of people considering the crowd built up in front of the elevators. I’m saying the elevator system is flawed and is problematic from the start. You have to scan the card, type your floor number, it tells you which elevator can take you there. A lot of the time (even when traffic is low) elevator doesn’t come down after waiting for literally 5 minutes. I feel like it wasted our precious time there in Hawaii, on something that should be very simple. The rooms are small and need updating.

    Too small

    Nice location but we had a tiny king bed room and the bathroom is what you’d expect at a Motel 6. They store the clean towels on a rack INSIDE the tub/shower. The elevator system is unlike anything we have seen before. Strange system plus lengthy wait for elevator.
