    We loved this hotel! The location was perfect and the staff were all very friendly. We especially loved how close to the beach the property was and how clean our room was. The hotel restaurant is definitely overpriced ($30 per person for the buffet in the morning) but there are tons of other restaurants around where you can grab a quick bite or the coffee shop downstairs. It was very nice of them to store our bags since our flight was at 11 PM and they only charged $2 per bag for that. Overall, we loved our stay and will be back!

    We took surf lessons here and were really impressed with the hotel. It had a great vibe to it. Casual, relaxed, cool vintage surf feel. Immediately felt comfortable there. Lobby had a great little coffee shop that also sold picnic lunches to go, we had a dole whip from the smoothie shop. They also had a fantastic little surf art gallery, affordable and great prints. I bought a Heather Brown printed baseball hat. The surf shop was great, lessons were good, great instructors and staff. Got up first try. Want to stay here next time. Location was good too. 5 min walk to the middle of the action on the strip.

    Very helpful and nice hotel staff!

    The room was much more spacious then it appeared in pictures... clean and updated. Gorgeous view of Diamond Head through our large room windows. I’m slightly out of touch with electronics and WiFi, I called the front desk and Allen came right up to my room and helped me figure out how I could stream my netflix account onto the room tv. The wonderful staff at QK go above and beyond! We were very pleased with our stay and the accommodations.

    Good hotel at east end of Waikiki

    Nice hotel with a substantial lobby area, Rooms are nice and you might get a nice view also, although many views involve looking at other rooms as well. I would certainly stay here again, especially if able to get a special rate. Recognize it is at the easternmost end of Waikiki, ie no more hotels to the east of it, it's the end of the line. That's good in that it means great, uncrowded park area all to one side of the hotel and keeps views from being blocked. On the other hand, it means a longer hike back into the heart of Waikiki. For us that was fine because we don't mind a walk. My biggest problem is with the expense of the hotel's restaurant. When we were there, they left a gift of a $5 credit for breakfast at the hotel. Turns out that was not even enough to buy a cup of coffee. So just don't eat there. The pool area is pleasant with great view to Diamond Head and to the ocean, but it's not a luxury pool in my opinion.

    We stayed at the Queen Kapiolani while visiting my son and family who reside in Kailua on Oahu. The stay was pleasant in spite of persistent rain that plagued the week. To their credit, the staff at the hotel did their best to make our stay comfortable, One block from Waikiki, the hotel had large rooms, Service was competent, friendly and professional and the restaurant had a stunning view of Diamond Head. Lunches and dinners were very good, but the $30 breakfast was a bit over-priced. Overall, the stay was pleasant in spite of the inclement weather.
