    What a lovely stay! This was our first trip in over a year, and so glad we chose to stay at the Royal. This was our first time at the iconic pink palace and my only complaint is that I wish we extended our trip. Service was above and beyond, as we spent most of our time lounging at the hotel. Mai Tai bar has the best Mai tais !! The poke bowl was pretty damn good too. Bartenders Susan, derick and Kaui made the experience even better. Kasey who was serving at the pool was oh so sweet! Too short of a stay, but we’ll be back!

    Loved the hotel. Check in ways great and loved the location. I am titanium for life and got an upgrade and the room was very nice and ocean view with a balcony. Also received coupons for breakfast. Everyone in the hotel is very professional and nice. It’s nice to be in a smaller hotel and when you look at the Sheraton next door and how huge it is it makes you appreciate this “boutique” hotel. This is my new favorite hotel in Oahu.

    Really an amazing hotel. Great service. Front desk receptionist (mark or alex or david I think) was exceptionally nice and helpful (even though I was a little annoyed at a few covid related restrictions). Really an awesome property. Thank you!!!

    Lovely step back in time...

    I love historic hotels so, we booked here with the expectation we wouldn’t stay for our whole trip. We were so happy we chose to stay here for our entire trip. The hotel is almost 100 years old and has details newer buildings do not have. The common spaces: lobby, shops, restaurants, gardens, beach... are all well maintained. Our room was a suite. A nice room with separate living room with beautiful views of one of the courtyards and the ocean. The furnishings and fixtures were lovely. The bathroom was well done, but smaller than you’d find in a newly built hotel but for me that was fine and part of the charm of it all. This charm was also seen in the staff. 90% of the time we spoke to staff, I was shocked by how friendly they were. They went out of their way and remembered us even a day or to later. Only one cafe/bar was open but the food was good and right on the beach. The hotel seemed to be away from the others, but it was actually close to everything. We rented a car from the hotel next door when we drove to the North Shore. We could walk a few blocks to many shops and more restaurants. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport and 25 minutes from Pearl Harbor. We loved it here and will be back within the next year.

    Straws

    Sad that the Royal Hawaiian isn’t using paper straws. The straws they are using are definitely not ocean animal friendly. :( I love this iconic spot, but urge them to be more enviro friendly. Please change this!
