2045 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki
Although each room is individually owned, all are decorated similarly in an antique Hawaiiana theme and are nicely appointed. Rooms facing the ocean have unusually good views given the distance, thanks to the tranquil park between you and the water 0.3 miles away. Best views are from the eighth floor and above. Their pool is small for this size condo complex, but it has comfy chairs and cabanas. There’s a weekly manager’s cocktail reception and a morning yoga class four days a week. They will even loan you bicycles as part of your resort fee. Overall, this is probably the best property in the immediate area.
Hotel-type rooms (340 sq. ft.) are $300–$330, studios with kitchenette (340 sq. ft.) are $350, 1/1s (657–746 sq. ft. and full kitchen) are $450–$550, 2/2s (1,126 sq. ft. with washer/dryer in unit) are $750. These rack rates are too high, but most get discounts.
