Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bucketlistgirl Great hotel for first time in Hawaii
The Holiday Inn is beautiful inside and welcoming upon arrival. The moment I arrived to the hotel I was greeted by the gentlemen that took our luggage and sent to the room and helped direct us to the lobby. Throughout the week stay, these gentlemen remembered us and that is a hard to do with so many visitors.
The front desk staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful especially on the last day as we had to check out but our flight was delayed and we were able to use the hospitatlity suite. What a luxury!
The room was clean and when we requested more pillows, housekeeping brought them up in a few minutes. The balcony overlooking the street and the ocean was worth having coffee and cocktails! So relaxing!
Definitely come to the Holiday Inn. We will return in the future.

Excellent Staff. They were friendly and helpful. Room was extremely clean and great housekeeping staff. I love the Japanese toilets that wash and dry. Food and Staff at the Jimmy Buffet bar was good & the drinks were great. Great place to relax.
Parking valets were also extremely helpful and friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by superstayer great location
I am platinum and we were upgraded to an ocean view. Obviously being across from the ocean front hotels our view was blocked, but very, very nice anyway. We could certainly see the ocean. We were on the 12th floor. We heard music a couple of times from the bar at night, but it was minimal. It was a very acceptable room, average holiday inn, decent price for the area. Surf board alley right beside Cheesecake factory offered great beach access.
The cleaning staff were extremely friendly, the front desk average. Don't bother trying to get a late check out until the day of departure, I've never heard so many lame excuses for not even checking. I'm having trouble getting my points and credit for the first night, I guess because we arrived late (even though we paid for the whole night?), but am working on it.
We went to Jimmy Buffets for the breakfast buffet the first morning, were not impressed and ate elsewhere for the other 8 mornings. It is $13.95 and nothing special. Duke's across the street in the Outrigger was 3 dollars more, included beverages and they made custom omelettes and it's right on the ocean.
This hotel is in an excellent location and is nice and clean, I would recommend it, even though my review is a bit negative. I'm just used to great service for platinum.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mdcind Great location! Next to International Market
We stayed here in last week of Dec 13. The location is fantastic. As a platinum member they upgraded me to full ocean view with Diamond head view. Only short walk across the street to the beach. Excellent shopping, grocery in the area. Will recommend for family stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mew007 Great pillows but other things need attention
Reception. Staff and expedia staff were friendly and helpful. The doorman who saw us to our room offered local knowledge and when asked about A location for a Mexican restaurant we were told, that there weren't any. We found la cucharacha 2 blocks away . FANTASTIC MEXICAN,
Disappointed with the "we think of the planet" card in the bathroom for reusing towels when polystyrene cups wrapped in plastic are provided for tea and coffee. T.bags were also provided but no means to boil water to make tea, unless of course you wanted coffee infused like warm tea.
Bed comfortable, pillows lovely , honest chamber staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gsldr77 Great View
We had a great view of the sunrise from our room. The sound of the beach was so relaxing. Everything was within walking distance: restaurants, shopping, beach. There is plenty of transportation to help you get around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Punsoh Very comfortable room and great location in Waikiki
I was very pleased that I chose the Holiday Inn for our stay in Honolulu. The room was very clean and spacious. There was easy access to the beach using the surfboard alley by Cheesecake Factory across the street.
The reception staff was very friendly. We arrived early in the morning and they offered to store our luggage for check in later in the day.
