We got to the hotel and they had up greated are room to an ocean veiw. The staff was friendly and always willing to help. Food was good and the view of the ocean and Waikiki at the restuarant wonderful. If you want quit and relaxed this is the place and only a short 10 min walk to Waikiki. Beach was not crowded and park is next door.

My wife and I stayed here for eight days in August, and can honestly say we will stay there again next time! The location on San Souci beach is the best...just a short walk from the crowds of Waikiki but far enough away to be much quieter. We slept with our upper floor balcony door open every night and noise was never a problem, just the sound of the ocean. There is a beautiful park adjacent to the hotel and the zoo is a short walk away. The staff is awesome...be sure to ask the bellman for snorkle equipment rental or just a straw mat for sunbathing....they have those things right there. I had to do some business faxing, etc. while there and the front desk staff was extremely helpful. Didn't eat in the restaurant, we weren't wild about the pink table cloths and big trees. There's a Starbucks two blocks away for your morning fix. I'm a realtor so on Sunday afternoon we went to the open houses in the Diamondhead neighborhood...you should do it if you love * million dollar beach houses like I do! This is not the ultimate luxury hotel, but for us the location was far more important than a big room. San Souci beach is great...my local Hawaiian friends prefer it to Waikiki crowds. Have fun!

The best part of this hotel was the fact that it was one of the lowest prices but it was right on the beach and right next to Kapiolani Park. The room was more than I expected with a kitchenette and more than ample space. The only thing that I had a problem with is that 2 double beds pushed together doesn't count as a queen! We asked for another room with a queen which they said was only available by request which online travel website didn't tell us when we chose queen bed. They moved us promptly to a new room the next day that had two doubles pushed together again but with a queen headboard; WOW! The view was better though so we left it at that; besides we didn't go to Hawaii to sit in our room. The flight and hotel arrangements went smooth though besides the room situation. Would recommend this hotel because it is on the beach and it isn't as crowded as the other hotels on the beach which are in downtown Waikiki. The hotel is also about a 5 minute walk from the zoo and the aquarium and only about 8-10 min from downtown Waikik and you can walk right along the beach or through the park so it is a pleasurable walk. Oh and hotel service was very friendly and quick. Restaurants in the hotel are really expensive though; even for Waikiki.

Stayed for 8 nights in the Diamond Head Wing Park View Studio three story ""walk up"". If you have heavy luggage you'll have to drag it up the steps. Kitchenette appliances were old. Shower curtains were of old vinyl/plastic that gave off a stench similar to BO. Awoke one morning and found a live cockroach in the bathtub with droppings. There were two more roach sightings throughout our stay. Valet parking is $15/day, but there are free street parking spots around the neighborhood. Beach location was fantastic! Busy Waikiki is about a 15 minute walk along Kapiolani Park.
We much prefer this far end of waikiki. it's close to the zoo with animals and away from the zoo of people in central waikiki. staff was very nice ...
We much prefer this far end of Waikiki. It's close to the zoo with animals and away from the zoo of people in central Waikiki. Staff was very nice and helpful. The overlooked-restaurant, Miyako, has great food and views (from 2d floor).
