This hotel sits across the street from its upscale sister property, the Moana Surfrider. You can sleep at the Princess Kaiulani, taking advantage of the lower rates of a non-beachfront hotel, oversee the bustle of Waikiki from your private lanai, and dine at any of the more-pricey oceanfront Starwood hotels, charging everything back to your room at the Princess Kaiulani. 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 street-side, facing Kalakaua Avenue, and the luau, "Creation: A Polynesian Journey," plays in the Ainahau Showroom. As of April 2013, this property became entirely smoke-free.

in a city of overhyped accommodations, this is very much the middle, as amenities are slight, noise is abundant and value is the only attraction. Aloha.

Thank God we were given a room in the Princess Tower after complaining. This place is a good value in Waikiki if you can book it for a steal via PL, otherwise stay elsewhere.
