Sheraton Princess Kaiulani

Sheraton Princess Kaiulani

by | Mar 17, 2012

This hotel sits on the site of the summer home of Princess Ka‘iulani, crown princess of Hawai‘i, who died in 1899. Pictures of her and historic information is scattered around the hotel.

The resort consists of three very different buildings, and the tallest building doesn’t directly face the ocean. Some rooms do not have lanais. There doesn’t seem to be a single theme running through the resort—it’s as if all three buildings were unrelated, but they are trying. It seems that every time we visit, the resort is in a constant state of transition with some rooms renovated and others not. The renovated rooms have incorporated their namesake’s favorite bird, the peacock, into the room design. They are clean, simple and pleasant. Other rooms are not updated but can be had for much less money.

This place tends to feel really busy to us on every visit. The pace can be downright frantic. They clearly target families here—great if you’re bringing the kids, not so great if you’re trying to get away from ’em. The restaurant is located by the pool, so you can eat while another member of the family plays at the pool. Cabanas by the pool are an extra fee per day, and there is entertainment nightly. You also have signing privileges at all other Waikiki Bonvoy hotels in Waikiki.

Lots of different packages are usually available. Rooms are 200–300 sq. ft., luxury rooms are 350–550 sq. ft.
