There are two towers within this hotel—the Kona and the Waikiki towers. The property is just outside Waikiki, next door to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. Business travelers and convention attendees make up much of their customer base. (The convention center is very close by.) The room colors and furnishings are relaxing and modern, though not overly Hawaiian in feel. Rooms are very small and less expensive in the Kona Tower and have no lanais. The pool area is pretty functional and just a place to get wet. It’s a fairly long walk into Waikiki and its beaches and restaurants, but it’s also quicker when you’re looking to hop on the freeway. Lines can get ridiculously long at the front desk. In all, you need to decide if the location trade-offs are worth it. Local and toll-free calls are $0.75. Rooms (246–335 sq. ft.) are $379–$469, suites (560 sq. ft.) are $569–$849.
