This hotel was fabulous! It’s in a great location at one end of Waikiki Beach, a short walk to the beach, with great coffee, food, and shopping options nearby. The open-air lobby is lovely, with such a great island feel. Lots of seating to meet up with friends or just chill and relax, and a good cafe to boot! Service was super friendly and we even took a free lei-making class. The room was spacious, bright, and comfy, and it was cleaned and restocked with amenities daily. We loved this hotel and will be recommending to friends and family!

This is our second stay here,excellent location, a block from Waikiki beach and right across from the zoo and also close to restaurants and major city bus lines. Our junior suite had a view of the Ocean and Diamond point and the balcony was an amazing place to chill and taken-in nature - birds, roosters, and an occasional elephant call. We saw so many rainbows every day. The hotel staff was fantastic, a special shout out to Jocelyn at the front desk - service with a huge smile from her. Thanks Jocelyn. Also, the valet/towel station staff were awesome. The lobby is huge and has a Pineapple ice place, a surf shop and coffee shop. The coffee shop staff were great but the employees at the ice place and surf shop were unfriendly and could use a lesson in customer service. There is a restaurant, a pool and an outdoor dining area with specials and a happy hour. Give this hotel a try, I’m quite sure you’ll love it.

Lobby wasn’t very impressive, but the feature of the place is the third floor bar/restaurant, with views to the zoo- the gardens and diamond head...with music. 2 blocks to the water. We had a studio which was small, but clean and priced will, with a view of the flamingos at the zoo and the ocean.

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel! The breathtaking views of Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach and the Honolulu Zoo was so stunning and beautiful!! My young son was able to experience lei making and even yoga class which were free activities provided by the hotel. All the various staff members we've had the pleasure to encounter were so accommodating from the daily housekeepers, bellman, valet, front desk and especially Julie who was so pleasant and provided such great service!! We will definitely be back!

The staff are very welcoming and helpful. One of the cleaning ladies saw me get off of the elevator with a soup bowl and knocked on the door to hand me a spoon, which I needed! The hotel is walking distance (literally steps away) from the beach, Honolulu zoo, and the aquarium. The view of Diamond head crater from the pool/DECK restaurant are AMAZING. My room was located on the mezzanine floor, so the view wasn’t the greatest from there— the room faced a hostel, which the bathroom and kitchen were outside. We could see people cooking, sleeping, using the restroom from our window so we kept the blackout curtain down. The room itself, however, is very nice. The blankets do make a lot of lint, which stuck to my clothes and hair. That’s the only negative thing I have to say. The hotel is also an easy pick up- drop off point for many buses and the trolley. I would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future!
