This hotel provides everything you need. The rooms are a little bit older but clean. The bathroom is really small. The swimming pool is closed due to renovations, they didn't tell us this in advance. It didn't look like it would open any time soon.

We had a military function across the street at a VERY expensive hotel. We wanted to be able to have a few cocktails and not worry about a ride home, so we started looking at hotels to stay just one night. The event venue was a FORTUNE and the Military hotel next door was booked. Enter the Aqua Palms Waikiki. Directly across the street was super convenient and didn't make me regret wearing super sweet heels. Check in was super easy, although they do post a $50 charge on your card in case y... Read more

The hotel was nice enough, but old. The part that upset me was the pool was not working on two different stays and nothing was said when booking the room .. Also, the only way to get wifi was to go down to the lobby.. It's been awhile , so maybe both things have been fixed, but I would ask before booking. It's located is perfect, close enough to walk everywhere.. The staff weren't over friendly , but they did offer us lawn chairs to carry to the beach..

We have stayed at the Aqua Palms year after year and always loved it but this year it was a bit disappointing. We got a room on the 9th floor and we were looking forward to a nice hot shower since we had been in Samoa for 3 weeks and many times did not have hot water. The water pressure was very bad in the shower. Also, this year we wanted to use the in-room safe (which we were being charged for using in the resort fee) but we found that we had to get on our belly to even be able to read the ins... Read more

The room was spacious, a short walk to most shopping/food districts. Concierge was super helpful in helping us plan island activities, they had a great knowledge of everything you could do on the island. Staff were very friendly and helpful. This was my second stay at the Aqua Palms and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I have visited Hawaii for more than 10 times! This is the first time we paid for parking at a hotel and there were no parking spaces ! Several of their reasons were Rim Pac exercises, "Reserved - no hotel parking or "I-Hop Restaurant parking"! We rented a car to travel or explore the beautiful island of Oahu at day or night and not having to worry about parking when we come back to the hotel. The bell service was nice enough to guide us and go next door to the "Wailana" for pa... Read more

this hotel is moderately priced and located pretty close to the ala moana shopping center. there is also a shuttle that can take you to the shopping center as well as to the shops around waikiki boulevard. this hotel had many convenience shops that open late into the night as well as a 24 hour restaurant 2 doors away. will most definitely be back just because walking around even to waikiki beach is a whole lot faster than the cars, or buses....

Hotel was perfect for us, close to beach, shopping center and away from the crowd and traffic of central Waikiki. The traffic and crowded sidewalks were not a factor at this hotel. Yet it was walking from the center of the activities, including the beaches, restaurants and clubs.

When we made our reservation for this hotel we were expecting something garish but old and in poor repair, what a delight to find this place was a joy in which to stay. The room was very comfortable and the view across the town was unremarkable until you saw the ocean in all its glory. Okay so there were other hotels and resorts around us that blocked the view to the sea but the place was well placed to the fabulous Waikiki Beach and within walking distance of many of the shopping centres and ...

This hotel is about as close as you can get to the oceanfront, without being on it! When arriving, parking was a bit confusing, but we figured it out. The garage was convenient. Our room on an upper floor had a view of the Hilton Hawaiian Village directly across the street. We had a nice tiny lanai outside our room. The room was spacious and reasonably clean. The towels could have been a bit thicker - but overall a good value - especially with the IHOP breakfast coupons.

I was quite pleased with this hotel in 2013 so decided to return. I found the staff wonderful to deal with, and the room was excellent. I highly recommend asking for room 1115, because it is high enough to avoid the noise, and I loved sitting out on the balcony enjoying the view. The first day I was quite dazed from my 11 hour flight from NY so I didn't notice that there was a slight ocean view looking off to the left on the balcony. I enjoyed being in the back because it was incredibly peaceful... Read more

Our first night-ugh! Horrible foam pillows, tiny room, etc. asked for upgrade-beautiful room with lanai-asked for feather pillows and got 6 pristine, soft, comfortable pillows-slept like a baby-plus on Wed. They serve pupus and drinks in the lobby. Staff is so sweet, everything is nice, just be careful of your room-they're all different.

The hotel is conveniently situated, about a 10 minute walk to the Hawaii Convention Center and about the same distance to the beach. The rooms are modestly sized but certainly adequate, and the beds are quite comfortable. I didn't use the swimming pool but it looked very small. WiFi worked great. Overall, it's a good hotel and a decent value for Waikiki. Just one thing to look out for: the $15/day "hotel resort fee" isn't included in the daily room rate.

I was in town to visit family and needed a hotel for a few days. I was pleasantly surprised by the Aqua Palms and very much liked our double bed room with balcony. The rooms are very clean. The rooms had many features (kitchenette sink, balcony, closet, refrigerator) and I thought it was very good value. It's on the quieter side of Waikiki but close to iHop and there is a 24 hour diner down the street. It's perfect for those looking for a good deal. The staff was very friendly.

Overpriced, older hotel. Charging resort fee and there is no resort there. Swimming pool what they are showing on the picture looks totally different in reality, and not in a good way.

The Aqua Palms Hotel is a good hotel and we enjoyed our 3 day stay. It is near the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the beach.

We stayed here because it was significantly cheaper than the big resorts on the Waikiki Beach strip.

The check-in and out were both quick and easy. The lifts are slow but the room was spacious, had a nice balcony and was clean. They also provided beach towels (with a deposit) at the front desk.

The Aqua Palms was perfect for my 2 days trip in Honolulu. Good location, close enough to Waikiki but not in the middle of the craziness, great room (I was on the 12th floor PH, fully equipped kitchen), close to restaurants and the Fun Honolulu Brewing Co. Great check in experience and all interactions I had with the team was always very friendly. Parking on site - so no headache.

When traveling to Oahu, this is my go to hotel. The location is perfect, right at the gateway of Waikiki.
