Nice hotel located on the end of Waikiki. very friendly staff. Walking distance to a few chain restaurants, and just a little further to some of the beach front dining available at the larger hotels. Parking is valet only ($25 per night) and they close at 10am. I missed the tiny driveway my first time around. Rooms are smallish, but comfortable and clean. This was perfect for a solo business trip (me) , or a couple looking to be away from the beach front action. Balcony is nice with a small ta... Read more

Had a nice stay at the Equus. I actually took them up on their Polo match tickets on Sunday! A must do. Super fun gathering with tons of locals. The hotel was also a nice place to stay and had deals on tourist attraction. The location was pretty good if you want to be close to the mall.

My Ohana and I recently stayed at Equus for the weekend as we came to O'ahu for a wedding. When we checked in on Friday, we were greeted by the lovely Rene. Check in was quick and easy and we couldn't wait to get to our room. Seriously THE BEST BED EVER! With the AC on full blast and the cool and extremely comfortable down comforter, we had such a hard time leaving the room! When we did leave, the guys downstairs were really friendly an were prompt in getting our car. When we left early Saturday... Read more

We booked the hotel through a United Vacation Package, and it was a terrible mistake. We will NEVER stay in this hotel again. Their service is very slow, even check-in took almost thirty minutes because the guy managing the front desk went off to attend to someone's bags (and this was around 11 pm at night when we were already supremely exhausted), and at first we thought it was just the pace of the island lifestyle. But then, during our week long stay, our room was not cleaned for three days-... Read more

I had to review this hotel again after staying there last month. Our company has a corporate contract with the Equus, and I'm normally a grouchy traveler when it comes to Hawai'i because our office is over by the airport, and with no nice hotels out there, I have to stay in Waiks which means tourist, traffic, tourists, and of course no parking. While the hotel charges for valet, they seemed to have fixed some of the kinks from my previous visit and I never had to wait more than a few minutes f... Read more

Air conditioning was not working properly in our room. Maintenance man could not fix the air conditioner to make it get cooler. We had to change rooms and lost our king bed but the unit in the room was working properly. Another lady said her room was not very cool. When we checked out the next day the lady at the front desk said we were the second complaint about the room in which we were originally booked. Overall room was ok and good location and staff very helpful.

We stayed at the Equus on a trip to the Philippines. The location was good and parking while available, expensive per night. There was no elevator from street to lobby; there is an elevator to room floors. We found the staff efficient if not overly helpful. Rooms are comfortable and while you can hear street traffic, i expect you can hear this from all the hotels on Ala Moana Blvd due to the traffic. Hotel is abit long in the tooth, but again comfortable beds. I wish they served breakfast o... Read more

When I lived in Italy, I sought out properties like this one, over bigger, flashier hotels. The Equus is simple and elegant with the slightly European feel that all truly-kama'aina establishments offer.

My wife and I only had the chance to stay at the Equus for one night, but it was a great night! Staff is friendly and very attentive...my wife and I were traveling with a significant amount of baggage but were offered prompt help in moving everything around. Rooms are clean, cool, and well appointed to make for a comfortable stay after your day out and about. Management is hands on and extremely friendly...you are treated like 'ohana' (family). Location is perfect and this boutique hotel offers ... Read more

I was staying in Marina Towers Waikiki and they closed the only remaining elevator until the 180 kph winds subsided. The other elevator had never worked. My room was on the 38th floor. Mariah, the General Manager at The Equus, took me in free of charge and I spent the remainder of my Honolulu stay there in safety. She gave me a pass to buy dinner and made me very welcome. The hotel was clean, had everything you needed and was a godsend. Thank you Mariah. Big hug coming your way.

What a gem to find in the amoung the towering corporate owned hotels in Honolulu. Our room was a little suite complete with a wine cooler, mini frig and sink. NO stove but who cares when there are great locally owned restaurants like the Aloha Kitchen and Goofy's within walking distance. The kitchen and bathroom were newly renovated but the charm about our room was it was filled with antique, hand carved polynisain furniture. General manager, Mariah Dailey, Assu and her staff were wonderful ... Read more

Excellent location, friendly staff, great entertainment options, and a happy hour make the Equus a winner! Short walk to Waikiki beach, plenty of restaurants within short walking distance, the Ala Moana shopping mall is right around the corner, and the Ala Moana Promenade is great for a walk or morning jog.

I really enjoyed everything during my stay at the Equus hotel. Rooms and all facilities are very nice, so are the surroundings. I cant forget to mention very friendly staff, especially the guy at the front desk, his name was Ramon and he was very helpful and was able to solve all our inquries! Thanks again and Im definitely coming back!
