Aston at the Executive Centre Hotel. Downtown Honolulu's only hotel is an all-suites high-rise in the center of the business district, within walking distance of the historic Capitol District, museums and Honolulu's Chinatown and a 10-minute drive from Honolulu International Airport. It's also three blocks from Aloha Tower Marketplace and the cruise-ship terminal at Pier 10. Accommodations occupy the top 10 floors of the 40-story glass tower, and have panoramic
views of downtown Honolulu and Honolulu Harbor. Many hotels offer their guests free continental breakfast each morning, but here it's served in the top-floor Executive Club with views so mesmerizing, you might linger over your morning latte. The slew of amenities is a boon to those staying for several days or longer. Each spacious suite has a separate living area, three phones, deep whirlpool tubs, and kitchenette stocked with cold beverages. Some units have washer-dryers. It is also within walking distance to the newly revitalized Chinatown area that's burgeoning with new restaurants, bars and art galleries.

The Executive Centre is smack dab in the middle of downtown Hawaii. Although not a "tourist" hotel, it is within walking distance from the State Capitol, Aloha Tower, and Chinatown. The rooms are floor-to-ceiling glass and the higher floors have incredible views of the city. A special plus is the very plentiful continental breakfast on the 40th floor. A hidden feature is a rather large pool and spa tub on the 11th floor of the commercial tower.
If you don't have a rental car, the hotel is located at the hub of Oahu's public bus transit system. The system if very convenient, clean, and will take you anywhere on the island.

This is a great hotel if you want to be near the cruise ship terminal. It's located within a couple of blocks walking distance. A birds eye view of cruise ships docked can be seen from the room that the complimentary continental breakfast is served in. The room was very spacious, clean and in good repair. Especially good value if you get the Entertainment Rate of 50% off. This is not a fancy resort but a condo that is in a convenient location if your
flight arrives late at night and you want to be able to be five minutes away from boarding your ship.
