                      Location to the city and restuarants was useful

                      The 'continental' breakfast provided was a joke - coffee and cakes only. Only one small lift was servicing 39 floors with 4 units per floor - the 2nd lift being out of action. The one working lift broke down for about one hour late afternoon one day(I did warn them about only having one working lift but little care factor from staff). No DVD/CD recorder in the room as advertised on your site("We don't have those").

                      It is good location for Waikiki Beach, Park and shopping Center.The room is comfortable. Staffs are friendly.

                      The car park fee seems excessive for $18.99 per night. Perhaps its location no need for personal or rental car. Free shopping bus stop is closed by.

                      Convenient location, homely, affordable and clean. Staff are very helpful and friendly. thank you.

                      The entrance to the hotel can be improved where guests do not carry their heavy luggage up the steps to the reception area. Guests are different and not all are strong or physically able to carry their luggage up the steps. May be an easier way of bringing their luggage up would be nice. Breakfast - not all guests drink coffee. I for one, only drink tea and this was not available. May be include tea to accommodate non-coffee drinkers. i saw cigarette butt in the pool and wonder whether a notice to guests to not throw litter down or even ban smoking from balconies.

                      The bed comfortable. If the guest is sensitive to noise coming from the streets and nueighboring rooms, this place is not for you. Room modest and clean. Location is good. I arrived early in the am, check in time was at 3 but the guy from the reception was kind enough to check me in on the 1st available room.

                      The actual hotel was okay. The staff were very friendly. Overall, for the price, and for the location, I think it's not a bad place to sleep.

                      Parking cost was too expensive!! Hotel did not look anything like the online pictures.

                      Probably just its proximity.

                      The shower was filthy and I contracted a dose of tinea. It was also very noisy when showering due to broken nozzel. One lift was out of commission and so was the spa pool. Larry is a good employee. The breakfast facilities are a joke and I did not enjoy having to lug 3 x suitcases up a flight of stairs to register.On registering we were given a room with 2 x single beds when we had clearly ordered a queen room on line. I have noticed that throughout the places we stayed in the States your correlation between price and star ratings are out of kilter to the rest of the world. A 3 star hotel such as yours is not worth the $100 per room you ask, plus taxes, plus tips. In NZ you will get a true 4 star room for nzd$125 all inclusive.

                      It was awesome that they had a tennis court. It's in a nice part of Waikiki away from all the touristy shops by the marina. The bed was super comfortable. One of the best hotel beds ever.

                      The staff were all fantastic except for one girl who kept trying to charge me a dollar for coffee packets, which seemed pretty cheeky when nobody else did. Not cool.

                      All staff including the porters were fantastic. Very friendly, ready to offer advice on where to eat and advice for the other Islands. One of the nicest group of hotel staff we have encountered in 3 months of travelling across Europe and North America.

                      Breakfast is included, but little on offer (dry pastries, toast, fruit, coffee, tea juice). Although the fruits were nice, we would have preferred no breakfast and a cheaper rate.

                      We loved the location near the Ala Moana Center (great food court) where all the buses depart. Opposite the center is a beach park which the locals prefer. It's perfect if you don't want to be in the middle of Waikiki.The breakfast at Equus was good with fresh fruit and Hawaiian coffee. Our balcony was great. The manager Renee is lovely!!!

                      Our room was a bit noisy at night, since it faced (as all rooms) a busy street. In the morning there was often a rush at breakfast, since the lobby is small with limited seating and everybody wanted to be first at the fruit trays.

                      Clean room, very comfortable rooms, good location.

                      Only one slow elevator that did not go to ground floor. Need to walk up 1 narrow flight of stairs to lobby to check in and elevator. Parking is in the adjoining building.

                      I really liked the location,nice and quiet. Nice view, close to stores and restaurants.

                      In the bathroom, sink countertop behind toilet is very uncomfortable, unable to sit upright. Shower water valves was quite hard to turn. TV remote not working for turning on and off. Door lock was hard to operate, had to try multiple times to open door.

                      The location is good for shoppers and others that enjoy living in the crowd.

                      The room cleaness as far beyond standards. Worst of all the amounts of ants and other insects and the bathroom was simply disgusting. For a 39 store buildnng two elevators is not enough to provide resonable access to get out or in. Also no balconys and I felt trapped in my room viewing the city and a fragment of the ocean.
