Sheraton Princess Kaiulani

120 Kaiulani Ave., Honolulu, Hawaii, 96815, USA

Starwood's Princess Kaiulani sits across the street from the regal Moana Surfrider, without some of the more elaborate amenities (such as a spa or a kid's club), but with rates that are considerably kinder to the wallet. Rooms are in two towers—some peer at the ocean over the Moana's low-rise historic wing. It's a two-minute stroll to the beach. The hotel's pool is streetside, facing Kalakaua Avenue, and the luau, "Creation: A Polynesian Journey," plays in the Ainahau Showroom. It can feel a bit rushed with guests coming and going, but the location can't be beat, and the rooms are more than adequate for the price. Many visitors stay at the PK (as it's called by locals) then spend their days at the beach and the bars across the street. The hotel also offers cultural classes such as lei making and ukulele playing. The property is also entirely smoke-free.
