Fodor's Review

Gen Xers will immediately feel at home in this edgy hotel with an eye to slick design. The lobby has the feel of an upscale jazz club, with recessed lighting and bookcases. The guest rooms and suites are equally swanky, with natural tones, modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi, and private lanai in many units. There are even iPods programmed with music perfect for lounging. The hotel's signature restuarant, Morimoto Waikiki, is a creation of renowned Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, who often can be spotted manning the sushi bar. There are two pools: one with a teak deck; the other, a sleek cobalt blue adults-only version of a wading pool, is surrounded by 100 tons of sand, creating a beach feel. There are three bars on the premises—the most popular being the Study, hidden behind a rotating bookcase—each with its own signature cocktails. Addiction, a trendy nightlife space, lures the younger, hipper crowd. This is perhaps the best pick for urbanites who like the feel of a hip, big-city hotel.
