This was our family's first experience with a hotel in Honolulu, and it did not disappoint! The location is EXCELLENT! Our room was clean, well-appointed, and very comfortable and spacious for our family of three (2 adults and a teenager). The included breakfast was EXTRAORDINARY! So many choices and so delicious! While there was no room service, we were very pleased with the very nearby restaurant, Yard House, with whom the hotel has teamed to serve as a room service provider for guests; they even offer a discount to Embassy Suites guests! The complimentary evening gathering was such an unexpected and delightful addition to our experience! It really represented that Aloha spirit as it welcomed guests to intermingle in a relaxed, family-friendly environment. We hope to return to Waikiki again soon and can't imagine staying anywhere else when we do! Mahalo to Embassy Suites for a great homebase during our Honolulu adventures!
Wonderful Family vacation

We stayed at the Embassy Waikiki this last week in June and it has been fantastic! The location is amazing- so many shops and restaurants nearby and the beach is a very short walk away. ABC stores right down the street if you need any last minute items. The staff have all been so friendly and helpful. Housekeeping does an excellent job here! The breakfast is phenomenal and the evening reception is nice as well. We have enjoyed our time at the pool (it gets very busy during the evening reception!)
We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids ages 18, 14, and 8) and everyone has absolutely loved it here! It’s also easy to get around the island and explore.
Great location but some niggles

The main benefit of the hotel is its location-within walking distance of all the stores and restaurants .We rented a car for a couple of days and it was great to drive out to the North Shore and try the food trucks on the way .
We didn't try the pool as it was packed full of small children ( nightmare !) .The inclusive breakfast was good but worth either getting up early or avoiding entirely at weekends as the lines are very long .
One drawback is that the main building is lacking in sufficient elevators which can mean very long waits to get up and downstairs .This links in to one other issue -when we arrived we were given a room on floor 4 right next to the elevators which was very dark and unappealing .Worst of all floor 4 is the main thoroughfare for access to the pool and breakfast so there were lines of people there for large parts of the day-luckily we managed to get moved to floor 8 .
Otto is great!!

We love Otto! We are a family of 5 and he made us feel welcomed. He offered us a really nice spot by the pool. Drinks are free for kids and adults. Snacks are delicious too. We love this property, our family has a great time, and really appreciate Otto and how he took care of us!!
Appreciated all the amenities they had to offer.

I like embassy suites. You know what to expect and u get it. Free breakfast buffet was over the top. Great choices. Social hour with free drinks is always a plus! Pool and sun deck were very well kept and had a very relaxing atmosphere. This location was perfect for our stay in Honolulu. Would definitely stay here again.
