We, my husband and I and another couple, just returned from a week in Waikiki. It wasn't enough!
You helped book us into the Waikiki Beachcomber. Both rooms were very clean, nicely decorated and quite roomy. We had a lanai and a good view of the ocean and part of Diamond Head. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Though they seemed to always look very busy, they were always gracious and quite willing to stop and answer our questions.
The location of the hotel was perfect. You cross the road to the public accessway and you are right on the beach.
And the shopping! The Beachcomber is located right above Macy's and next to the International MarketPlace which is aa shopper's dream. Then there is the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center right across the road. A 15 minute trolley ride will take you to the Ala Moana Shopping Center.
We would suggest to book a room on a higher floor. The lower you are, the closer you are to street noise. Kalakaua Ave is very busy and can get get loud at peak traffic times.
This hotel is perfectly located. You are central to the beach, shopping and a wide variety of restaurants, from fast food to gourmet dining.
We would recommend the Waikiki Beachcomber to everyone.
