Where to stay for one night in waikiki

Hi- We are a family of 5 and will be getting off a cruise ship at 8 am and we do not fly home( Canada) until 10 pm that same night. we would like to book a hotel room for the day (probably would have to pay for the night-not sure)We want to hang around waikiki beach, have showers and possibly have a nap before doing a red- eye home. Any Ideas from anyone! Most of the hotels I have tried require a 3 night minimum.Looking for something in $100 range. We will not even be sleeping there. Place to shower, rest and leave baggage.Has anyone else done this! Thanks!

I'll be in Waikiki for one or two nights in July and have found that the all the hotels I looked into offer stays for one or two nights except for the Halekulani on some dates in August. Check the Outrigger Waikiki, the Moana Surfrider, and the The Royal Hawaiian. OOps, jsut saw the $100 thing. Maybe I'm wrong, but it may be hard to find anything on the beach or near the beach for $100 a night. Try the Waikiki Circle. It is across the street from the beach and is in the $150 - $200 range I think.

There are actually not too many hotels directly _on_ the beach in Waikiki and certainly none in the $100- range.

From your post, it sounds as if you want to book _one_ room for all five people. Many hotels do not allow more than three or four people in one room while others will charge for the additional people. Be sure to inquire about this.

What is probably one of, if not _the_, absolute lowest-priced hotels in Waikiki is The Royal Grove. It is a block-and-a-half from the beach and, surprisingly- considering the price, seems to have a good reputation and has good reviews on Trip Advisor
( http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev...hu_Hawaii.html )

There are two other well-known, smaller low-priced hotels with generally good reputations:
The Breakers and Hawaiiana.

You might find these (and, for that matter, many other hotels in Waikiki) too noisy for taking a nap, though.

You should probably try to get as high a floor as possible, wherever you stay.

Perhaps your best bet would be a 1-bedroom on a high floor in one of the condo hotels such as the Pacific Monarch, Sunset or Banyan.

You might want to consider New Otani Kaimana Beach hotel, on the quieter, Diamond Head end of Waikiki.

Since it will be such a short stay, you may want to try taking your chances with Priceline.

These 2 are a couple blocks in off the beach, but well located near Fort de Russey park. Try The Breakers and The Hawaiiana Hotel. Both have a nice pool(s). There're a bit more than $100 but not by much. And would be very pleasant for what you describe.

The Hawaiiana is not a noisy hotel, unless you are on the back side that faces Saratoga (busy street). It's situated in a courtyard style so all rooms face the lawns, gardens, pools.

I think you would have to book it for the night before, tell them you are going to be arriving very very late (9am) and ask for late checkout at 3 or 4pm .
Otherwise day rates may not be available until shortly before your arrival, the hotel has no way of knowing if a guest room will be emptied, free and cleaned by 9am if it is occupied the previous night. But, if a few days before arrival, they have plenty of empty rooms showing...they might offer a "day rate".

Try the Ohana chain of hotels. Some of them are quite cheap.

When are you coming that they require 3 nights? Thats pretty unusual for Hawaii.

Try the Ohana Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel. Central place, next to the International Market Place and across the street from the beach and the pink Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

We stayed at the Ocean Resort Hotel in Waikiki. The rooms where quite large and the price was very reasonable. See www.oceanresort.com

I have a suggestion for you. Please e-mail me at [email protected] and let me know what date you will be in Honolulu. I understand the convenience of having a place to "crash" that is close to the beach.
