Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel Review

This unusual 14-story circular hotel—built to resemble a Chinese lantern—is a Waikiki landmark, though the rooms are small, with tiny bathrooms with showers only. A charming interior design scheme brings the Pacific inside, beginning at check-in beneath a seascape mural in the open-air lobby. The elevators are painted a bright sea blue–green, and hallway floors are textured to mimic the sandy beach, complete with appliquéd seashells and sea creatures dotting the circular walkways. Though small, rooms utilize every bit of space well; hence the flat-screen TVs. Not that you'll be in your room: Waikiki Beach is right down the front stairs and across the street. The überpopular Eggs 'N Things is located right in the hotel's lobby. Honeymooners, snowbirds, and old-timers love this little hotel with a front-desk staff that takes the time to get to know you.

    Older hotel but good location

    Old and small, no pool, but more expensive than it seems because they hit you with a mandatory "amenity fee" of $19/day that covers only what a good hotel gives for free: wifi, in-room safe, local calls, in-room coffee pot. For a few bucks more, you can stay in the Marriott 2 blocks away with a lovely rooftop pool, terrace bar, and live music. Unhelpful staff.
