1956 Ala Moana Blvd, Waikiki
This hotel is popular with business travelers and those who want convenient access to the Hawai‘i Convention Center a few minutes’ walk away. The rooms have been updated with modern decor in rich chocolates and aqua tones. The bathrooms have shower stalls only, with hand-held shower heads—no tubs (except in suites). The rooms are nicely appointed and reasonably sized with Hilton’s Sweet Dreams beds, but the views are unimpressive.
You have access to the Mandara Spa at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. They have a decent-sized fitness room facing the large pool deck. It’s not a dreamy vacation paradise; it’s a convenient place for business travelers that’s uncomplicated and big enough to have all the features business travelers need without being so big that it takes hours to find them. Internet is $11 per day if you are not in the Hilton Honors program (for them it’s free). Rooms (330–375 sq. ft.) are $186–$305, suites (627–1,000 sq. ft.) are $239–$425.
