Fodor's Review

Its location—a 10-minute walk from the Hawaii Convention Center—and its 24-hour business center and gym meet the requirements of the Doubletree's global business clientele. But these perks also appeal to vacationers. The smallness of the property, the staff's attention to detail, and the signature Doubletree chocolate chip cookies upon arrival resonate with leisure travelers. All of the recently redesigned rooms in the 19-story high-rise have private lanai, but they

overlook the city and busy Ala Moana Boulevard across from Fort DeRussy.

Good value but average amenities

The price was reasonable compared to other hotels in Waikiki...but the room was on the smaller side, definitely could have used some updating, the bathroom (especially the shower which is really almost a half-shower) was small. The pool is very small with few chairs and was shaded for most of the day (you would need to move your chair around all day to get sun). The 'fitness center' was a few machines right next to the pool. The cookies were delicious---but

you have to buy them now (they aren't free anymore...$1.25 per cookie). The art in the lobby and concierge area is really beautiful and the bell staff and front desk staff were very helpful. But, Waikiki beach is a good 10-15 minute walk so if you want a hotel right on the beach or near the beach, stay someplace else.

Good value, good location

For a family of four, this hotel was a good value. We have two doubles plus a sleep sofa in a separate room. The lanai overlooked the pool as well as the mountains and Fort DeRussy park. We were steps away from the bus line and five minutes walk from the beach. We would recommend this hotel if you want good value and good location.

Price Is Mostly Right For This

The service is very good at this hotel- all the employees are very friendly and professional. Location is satisfactory- it's very close to the Hilton Waikoloa Village which is nice, but it's a little walk to the nicer parts of Waikiki. The lobby is clean but the escalators were broken. The "ocean view" room is a joke, and so is the "mountain view" probably- the hotel is wedged in bewteen two much taller hotels, so any ocean or mountain view will

only be about 5-10% of the view, most of which is of the other hotels, unless you get one of the few truly ocean view rooms. The one negative thing- the room, non-smoking, had a very peculiar (and not in a good way) smell to it. Opening the balcony doors helped somewhat, but there are no screen doors to keep things out. Overall, not bad, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go back.

Good rooms; excellent value if price is right

By mainland standards, this is probably hotel would rate about 3 to 3 1/2 stars. Our family of four (two kids under 9) stayed here. We booked a suite which includes a small living room with a sofa bed, and a small kitchenette. Postives were: very clean and big bathroom, clean room, two big double beds (can sleep two in each bed), plus the pull-out sofa bed provides flexibility. negatives: killed a couple of small bugs in the kitchenette. sofa-bed

was pretty old looking. Overall: reasonable room, nothing fancy by mainland standards. I thought it was an excellent value though at a rate of $130 per night for the suite that can easily accomodate 2 adults and 2 children. (Regular rooms were going for under $90 per night). The hotel was pretty full, so others must think it's a good value for Waikiki too.

Good value for Waikiki.

Just got back from 3 days at the Doubletree. Check in was a breeze, took all of 2 minutes. $9 a day for valet parking. I never asked if they has self parking. The room had an O.K. view ( 14th floor ) of the city and the mountains beyond. Good view for the King Kahmehameha Day parade though. Only a couple of complaints about the room. It had a sofa that was so old and disgusting with water stains my wife refused to sit in it, and the two televisions

had the annoying habit of both coming on no matter which remote or TVC I pointed a remote at.
