The hotel common areas are stunning. The hotel is called the first dame/lady of the hotels in Waikiki. We stayed in one of the tower rooms with a pretty much full ocean view, on the Diamond Head side. We were told it was a premier ocean view room, but if you look at the interactive diagram of the hotel on the website, the room we were in was considered a deluxe ocean view room, meaning not as nice. The front desk said the diagram was incorrect, that changes had been made, and we were indeed in a premier room. We were only on the third floor, below us was an extended concrete overhang which affected the view to an extent. Nevertheless, we did indeed have a view of the ocean, beach, Diamond Head, and the courtyard, just not from high up. I was told (not from a hotel employee) that anyone staying on the upper floors paid a premium for those rooms. Our package also included the daily breakfast buffet, which was wonderful as we then only needed to figure out what to do for dinner - no need for lunch. The waitstaff at breakfast were friendly, efficient, and a couple of the gentlemen had great senses of humor. Our room was quite large and noise-proof, unlike rooms in the original building, from what I've heard/read. Great decision to stay here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StarpointsSlave The Veranda Won Me Over
If not for the hotel's veranda I would have been disappointed in my stay. As far as traditional rooms go, it's a no-win situation regardless of which wing you stay in. The rooms in the Banyan Wing, to which I was originally assigned, are charming but sooooo small and have no lanai. I asked to be switched to a room in the Tower Wing instead, and while the rooms are spacious enough, the rooms are drab and dated, the bathrooms are lacking in counter space but not limescale, and the lanais are small and boast a view of ... the hotel next door. The answer to the unappealing rooms? Stay out of them as much as possible and, if not sightseeing, hang out on the wonderful veranda or in the beautiful lobby and gawk at all the Japanese wedding parties. I also dined at the Beachhouse, the hotel's signature restaurant, and I very much enjoyed the experience -- again, out on the veranda -- as well as the food (steak) and the service. To encapsulate: When I first checked in, I thought, "What a waste of my Starpoints since I don't care for Waikiki anyway," but by the end of my stopover stay I was thinking that whenever I visit one of the islands I'll make a point of connecting through Honolulu just so I can stay at the MS. Yeah, that's how much I loved the veranda.

The Hotel looks nice but the service is not that great. We used our points for 7 free nights and got an ocean view room. First of the all the rooms were tiny and since the ventilation systems were all connected we were receiving cigarette smoke in our room. I wouldn't mind so much if my wife wasn't pregnant. When we told the front desk, they sent a security office who told us he would try and find the source. This happened for 3 days in a row 2-3 times a day. As it did not get resolved they moved us to the other side which was a little larger. I have to admit the views from the room was beautiful. Once we got to the 2nd room there were little bugs everywhere. We told management and they sprayed the room but it's like ants. It won't go away. We were frustrated but they told us all of the rooms were booked so they can respray the room. Overall the lady who checked us in at the front desk Irene in the Gold Platinum line was really nice and the person who came to fix our sink was also great. Other than that Room service menu took 3 hours to come (Really a menu) and security was not much help. Overall I would not recommend the ocean view rooms as if I had to pay money for the rooms I would have been less patient. Oh and food is overpriced ie fries and coke was 20 bucks

Im going to make this brief. I am a Kamaaina and wanted a stay cation with my daughter. I thought the Moana would be perfect. I was wrong. I checked my luggage in early and told them that the ice in the cooler will melt and leak so be careful. When my luggage showed up at my room, my suitcase was wet because they hung the cooler above my suitcase and so were my clothes. The porter didn't apologize and called someone then told me she was on the phone. I did not get a call back from anyone.
I blew that off then something else happened. I was out and my parents were watching my daughter. The hotel key card I gave them didn't work. My parents gave front desk my last name and room number because they had to put my 5 year old daughter down for bed. They needed an id. Long story short, I had to leave where I was to show my id and get a new key. They said it was for security reasons but anyone can go up in the elevators and roam the hallways. The staff wouldn't think outside the box to let a 5 year old go to bed. Instead she was sleeping in the lobby because she couldn't go up to her own room to sleep until I got there. There is no ALOHA at the Moana. The staff there are like robots. They don't smile at you or say Aloha, they just do their "job" minus the feeling behind it. The Moana is the oldest hotel and it should be top notch but I was not impressed with the staff. The hotel is beautiful! Last time I stayed here was 20 years ago and after my recent experience I do not want to stay here again.

I live in Hawaii, and decided on a "stay-cation" in Waikiki. Waikiki is an unusual choice as it is very touristy. However, I had always wanted to stay at the Moana Surfrider. It was a decision well made. At the end of my stay, I wrote the following in my journal: marvelously comforting and relaxing. Maybe it was the awesome ocean-view. Maybe it was the total attentiveness of the waiter at breakfast. Maybe it was curling up in a cushy lounge-chair reading a book with a great cup of Kona coffee. Maybe it was lounging by the pool reading that same good book with full access to waiters to bring you drinks or munchies. Maybe it was relaxing with a cold beer under the banyan tree listening to easy rock. Maybe it was rocking in the rocking chairs on the front veranda with total strangers and admiring each bride and groom that departed through the front doors and sharing our thoughts. Maybe it was that no one questioned whether you fit into the right economic class to be there. Maybe it was the "heavenly" beds that caressed you to sleep. Maybe it was the kindness of the check-in clerks or the smiles of the cleaning staff in the hallway. I could probably continue on but the point is already well made. I was sold. THAT is customer service. The historical atmosphere is blended perfectly with the modern comforts and amenities.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Belinda A bad experience for us
We had a street facing room in the historic wing of the hotel for 4 nights in room 432. The street noise is very loud but nothing compared to the horrible neighbours we had in the adjoining room who shared our balcony. They drank and smoked and were excessively loud for 2 nights then argued through the day. We called security 3 times through the second night they were there(around 10.40pm, 2.30am then 4.30am) but they didn't quiet down and security did nothing to stop them. We got no sleep for two nights and were exhausted all day from the lack of sleep and it totally ruined our holiday. My husband had only come from Australia for 4 days so it was hard to get that pleasure of the Moana Surfrider when you have dreadful guests beside you and security not protecting your peace and quiet. They should have been evicted or we should have been refunded.
Todd (the manager) did offer us a breakfast and then delivered a wine & cheese plate to our room which we appreciated. It's just that the noise was too loud for anyone to enjoy.
The carpet was also in need to a clean and the shower looked tacky.
Everyday the room was stocked differently and three times I had to ask for somethings that the cleaners had forgotten.
On a positive side - the $30 resort fee is reasonable is you use the parking/yoga/aqua/phone and water, which we did everyday. Matt and Kristel are the best.

I'll be honest, my trip to Hawaii included a few stops, and I was worried the Surfrider may not meet my expectations. A 111 year-old hotel with a room in the "historic wing" seemed like a gamble, but the moment I walked into the lobby I was sure I had won that bet.
The Moana Surfrider is simply stunning, inside and out. Classic old architecture, a richly appointed lobby, and a fantastic courtyard with an ancient tree, all right on the beach. The ambiance cannot be beat, period.
Why was I ever worried? Plain and simple: a few reviewers, who clearly didn't know what they were getting into, had me scared. Let me respond to some of the generic complaints personally.
1-The room is noisy because it is a low-rise hotel ON Waikiki beach. If you want quieter, find a high-rise. If you want quiet, don't stay on one of the busiest beaches in the world.
2-Islands have bugs. Sorry.
3-The rooms are quite small. This is clearly stated on the website in square footage and with a floorplan, so I don't know why anyone is surprised by it.
I will admit, I was surprised by how low the ceilings are in the guestrooms. I'm a bit claustrophobic, so that was a shock at first. Then, suddenly, I remembered I was in Hawaii, and had little intention of spending excess time in my room! Problem solved.
Go. Stay. Enjoy the refined elegance and class only available from The First Lady of Waikiki.

We had high expectations for the Moana Surfrider being a "luxury" hotel, however, nothing could have been further from the truth when we arrived. The staff was incredibly rude from the moment we stepped inside the doors and didn't improve much by the time we checked out. Had problems with the room and complained to the manager on duty, who told us there was nothing he could do but welcomed us to find a room at another hotel. We later found out that the Moana was overbooked so this would have helped him tremendously. After checking around, we found there were no other rooms left in at similiar caliber hotels, so we simply stayed. A few days later the hotel manager did meet with me and provided a solution and an apology, but this hotel has a long way to go before it reaches the luxury status it claims. In summary the cons: very rude staff, small beach, tiny rooms, hit or miss service to rooms, few restaurant choices, rarely a person at the tours/activities desk, only two small shops in the hotel... The pros: well it looks impressive from the street, has a nice coffee shop and Matt the yoga instructor is amazing. I was told the hotel is undergoing changes to bring it up to the standard of a luxury hotel and I hope that continues to happen. The hotel director treated us very fairly and I can say nothing but good things about him, but the property itself and the staff employed are sorely lacking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vbvbvb Beautiful old lady of Waikiki glad we stayed
Despite this being a lovely hotel we were not advised of the presence of the spa especially, nor other facilities, eg the gym, on checkin which I think is just a common courtesy. We found the gym by looking briefly in your info book in our room.
Was a little disappointed you charged to watch DVDs and the selection quite limited.
The room was amazingly quiet given that it looked over busy Kalakua Ave, great soundproofing and double glazing, but the bathroom was poorly designed with water running straight out of the shower onto the floor and out the door into the room, we had to pile towels across the floor to stop it and prevent slipping on the wet floor, there is no ridge by the shower stall to prevent the water, a safety issue to look at and no place to put your toiletries and incidentals in the bathroom, a small 6 inch shelf which was occupied by your hotel hairdryer was all.... In short, poor design. Our room was 3501 if you wish to check this. I did report the shower issue to your concierge on July 28 as we checked out.
We asked for 2 beds in the room when i booked this hotel for my daughter and me and only one was available on arrival. They brought in a roll away but it completely filled the room, virtually nowhere to walk and dress without sitting on a bed or squeezing between a bag and room door. Couldn't get near the mirror after that, Room was not made up by 6pm on first night we found when we arrived back exhausted after a day out and about and had to ask for this to be done. Pool totally occupied by kids all day, and a little small and uninspiring in its design really, however, the service and the beach access made up for it but the beach is free to all....i was mainly disappointed about not being advised about your charging policy with those random charges to cover a possible dud credit card. I had to call your hotel from Sydney twice (nobody called me back) to get an explanation when i found this on the emailed version of your bill, which i had paid in full, at the Moana. Surely these are checked for validity upon checkin. I dont work in the hospitality industry so not familiar

We stayed at the Moana Surfrider after a long European holiday staying in a range of hotels of variable quality. We were really wanting to have some luxury after that, as we were on our way home to New Zealand to go back to solving our wearisome earthquake problems.
From the very moment we stepped into the hotel, we experienced the most amazing friendliness and kind service. Our initial awe at the beautiful lobby was quickly followed up by a kind and caring desk check in. We were tired after a 30 hour flight from Rome, so our desk clerk offered us water while we waited, saw to our booking quickly and effectively, advised us we had been upgraded (yay!) and allowed us to get quickly to our room.
The room was simply beautiful - a Diamond wing full ocean view double room with 2 exceptionally comfortable beds (as we were travelling with our 2 children aged 11 and 15). We stayed 6 nights in it, and everyday it was serviced to the highest level by the lovely housekeeping staff. We never felt it was too small for the 4 of us. We really can't say enough about those beds and pillows! Divine!
We found the food and service in the hotel to be of the very best quality. A couple of times we went out to other restaurants, only to be underwhelmed or disappointed and vowing to only eat or drink at the Moana. The staff were 100% friendly and highly professional in their service. We really enjoyed their friendly approach and their clear enjoyment of their jobs was infectious. The tone of the hotel's staff culture was clearly a very happy one.
Overall, we can't say enough what a brilliant stay we had. We will certainly be back as soon as we can.

Our room had a City View with the street scene happening. There are rocking chairs out front to read or people watch. The Sheraton owns the Moana Surf Rider & the Westin manages the hotel. The room was spacious, but the bathroom very small. There are no Qtips for the ladies, you need to ask for them at the front desk & then they come in a thick plastic that has to be opened & then another plastic bag for 2 Qtips. It takes a couple of days to find out where everything is and about the activities. It would be nice if they included that in the email. I read the booklet at the kiosk, & went across the street to a lei making activity to find out we had the same activity later that same day. The honey rum butter pancakes were the best! The breakfast was the best as well as the rack of lamb entree at dinner. The vegetables were not included in the dinner. There are no surf lessons at the hotel. You need to go out to the public beach next door. The pool is very small & it was very cold even too cold for Hawaii this time of year and there was no hot tub & no reciprocal privileges as the Royal Hawaiian. The location is the best feature of the hotel as well as the setting, the architecture, the convenience & security and the historical part of the hotel is unique. It was very convenient and beautiful. The room amenities, better stocked bathroom would complete the picture as well as upgraded pool. After the first day, they were jackhammering the pool which was very loud. Lots of noise at this hotel with lot of weddings going on while we were there. It was completely booked, but they treated us well, so we would like to come back if the price is fair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by skim730 So perfect you don't know why...
Moana Surfrider is one of those places where you just melt into paradise and you don't quite realize what that thing is and it's... the feeling of being absolutely carefree.
We're here right now in an ocean-view suite (rm 561) in the "old" part of the hotel which is just gorgeous. Huge old-school counter-weighted windows allow for the ocean breeze to flow in, the plantation shutters and decor create ambiance without being garish and tropical-flower-land.
There is music all the time! From the live entertainment at lunch time and dinner in the Beach House to the music piped through the speakers all throughout the resort, the soft Hawaiian-style tunes just add to the huge smile that you can't get rid of on your face.
Service is impeccable. As a frequent business and pleasure traveler, I've stayed at all kinds of places and there's really nothing lacking here. No one is intrusive, it's very, very comfortable and warm.
Highly recommend breakfast brunch at the Beach House. High end foods and ingredients, super fresh and healthy choices abound. Delicious and again - perfectly beautiful atmosphere under the giant banyan tree!!! It's well worth the price per person. If you have points, consider cashing some in for a free daily continental breakfast which will take 1/2 off each buffet breakfast cost.
Beach is private and beautiful. It could use a little sand added into the built-up portion but can't complain about how clean and convenient it is to have a private beach. Recommend not renting chairs from the hotel as it's a bit exorbitant for 1 or 2 people. If you're going to be here for a few days, go to the ABC store across the street for a couple of cheap beach chairs and umbrella if you really need them.
Can't wait to come back!!!

Although the bell and housekeeping staff were fabulous, the service from the front desk was awful. Upon check-in there was a long line in the regular area and we were third in the Gold & Platinum line up. Which was totally and completely unstaffed. There was zero acknowledgment of our presence by the two other people working the desk. One individual called on his cell phone and I went to the concierge desk twice and asked to have someone sent to staff the counter. They told me that they had paged the manager but nobody came. Upon getting to my room I wanted to switch rooms as the ocean view was looking onto the hotel roof. I called Service Express and they told me that due to the number of people checking in that they could not transfer me but that someone would call me. I waited and waited. My kids wanted to go down to the beach so I called again and was told someone would call me soon. I waited and waited. I called again and they said that they had sent the message but had no idea when my call would be returned as the front desk was busy. I decided to go back down and do it person. When I arrived there were five people working the front desk, two people being serviced and nobody in line. Yet nobody had called me. They gave me another room for consideration and went up with me to show it to me. I said that was fine and we would move our stuff down and come pick up additional keys downstairs. After lugging all the bags down to the new room I discovered the key didn't work. So I had to take it all back up again. When I went back to the front desk the clerk said "oh yes that was a one time use key". Yet they didn't tell me that when I said I was about to move my luggage down.
The rooms were great and I found the staff outside the front desk was fabulous and super friendly but the horrific service at the front desk especially for platinum guests was awful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UliMan Still Good but room for improvement
This is the third time I have stayed in the Moana Surfrider. The location directly on the beach is the best in Waikiki and is within easy walking distance of everything else you need: shopping, restaurants and nightlife etc. As a result, I usually do not rent a car except for one day excursions to other parts of the island. The front desk check in this time was not up to standard. I had to wait about two hours for my room since I arrived prior to check in time of 3pm. Not a problem, but the lady at the check in counter was defensive about it and just told me to hang out as if she was ready for a fight. It felt like she was blaming me for arriving early like I have control over the airline schedules. Very strange since I did not say anything about being disappointed. I stayed in the Historic Wing which for those who do not know is quaint but is noisier than the newer parts of the hotel. Not a problem for me but just a warning that you will hear the courtyard noise, street noise, other room noise and hall noise a lot in the historic wing. The price for history. The cleaning staff was friendly and helpful as usual. The toilet in my room made a "singing" noise from the pipes randomly and the toilet paper holder fell off the wall. Minor repairs but you would hope not to have this in a very nice hotel such as the Moana. The Beach Bar is best location but the bartenders can be kind of unfriendly. They seem to have worked there too long and really do not seem to care. Perhaps its because after paying $12 for a Mai Tai many people do not leave a tip? The Mai Tai's are made strong there by the way. The fitness center is adequate for basic workouts. However, do not expect a full set of free weights and barbells like a full service gym. Wifi is extra at $14 per day which is disappointing since many hotels include Wifi at no extra cost these days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KO39 Beautiful hotel, not worth the price
As a whole, the hotel is really a beautiful hotel and is in a great location. With that said, however, there were too many negatives for me to recommend.
#1: If you are used to mainland style air conditioning, this hotel is not for you. Our room was warm and despite turning the AC down basically as far as it would go, the room never really cooled. We notified the hotel about this twice. The first time we got no response - only indication that they had even visited the room was when we saw that the AC setting had been changed. The second time we asked if we could at least get a fan that would help move what cool air was coming in via the AC. We got the fan, but never a good explanation of the AC. The fan helped a little, but to be moderately uncomfortable sleeping for the price we paid per night was unacceptable.
#2: There really was little acknowledgment of being a platinum SPG member. I wasn't expecting to necessarily be wined and dined, but I was expecting something for my status. The only thing it really got us was free breakfast which consisted of the same fruit, bread, and yogurt platter every morning since apparently we couldn't be trusted to only take the cold portion of the breakfast buffet. Platinum status got us a whopping 1 hour extension of our check out time.
#3: Umbrella rental for beach was outrageous. Despite the advertisement of umbrella rental as being a "nominal fee", I don't consider $50 to be a nominal fee. Per #2, maybe a discount for platinum members?
#4: If you are travelling with young children, this hotel is likely not for you. We traveled with a 6 month old who is too small for water wings or a life jacket, yet when we tried to take him into an empty pool at 8am in the morning with a tiny ring float, we were told we couldn't use the float. Now, to be fair, the rules of the pool did state no floats, which I'm sure is to avoid clutter in what is a pretty small pool, but the child's float was tiny, and the pool was empty. Perhaps just tell us that it's ok until others come into the pool? Maybe show a little flexibility?

Rated 2 out of 5 by JJtwice We were disappointed
We booked the "First Lady of Waikiki" expecting a first class experience, and we were almost uniformly disappointed. The property is great as far as location, and the staff did their best to politely respond to our requests, even when they could not satisfy them. Also, the outdoor spaces are lovely and comfortable. However, there was nothing exceptional in the stay, and much to dislike. Our first night, we were in a room that was so noisy from Kalakaua Avenue activity that we were up half the night and requested a room change the next morning. Our new room, about 2/3 the size, was at least quiet. Two of the six nights we stayed there, we were awakened by fire alarms, once at 1 am. The wi-fi we were promised failed to work, and we needed to check out a hot spot from the IT department to receive internet service, even though we were in the main building just yards from the lobby. Even the hot spot worked only intermittently. We had requested a delayed checkout and were told to renew our request the day before checkout. When that time came, we were told to wait until the checkout date, at which time we were tersely advised by "Service Express" (an ironic name for them, as it turned out), that the front desk has denied all requests for extended checkout. There is no direct line to the front desk, and all requests are screened by Service Express, which almost without exception did not provide any. We were never told of a provision for guests to use changing facilities until it was already too late for us to take advantage. We have stayed at other Waikiki hotels, and we received far better value at a far better price. We could not help but feel that we were second class citizens at the Moana, whether because we did not pay a high premium for our room or because we were not among the many wedding parties that stayed there. Being an SPG member mattered nothing. Based on our stay, we would say that, unless you are a newlywed who has paid a king's ransom for a hotel room, do not expect this first lady to please. We are not novices to travel, and have made over 40 trips to Hawaii. Our accommodations this time ranked in the lower quarter of all our experiences. If you are going to spend over $400 a night for the lowest grade of room here, think again and look for a property that cares whether you are staying there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Austonian Caution: Limited SPG Participation
In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful hotels on Waikiki beach. The location is perfect, the grounds (pool, courtyard, etc.) are immaculate and the restaurant is top notch.
However, don’t be fooled by the hotel’s historic façade and glossy online pictures.
I’ve stayed here three (3) times, and each time I’ve returned, I’ve been hopeful that my previous poor experience at this property was simply an anomaly. However, this is not the case. I will no longer recommend or book this property for the following reasons:
1) It has been my consistent experience that this Starwood property doesn’t honor the Starwood loyalty program benefits. Period.
2) No upgrades—even during low season. Even if rooms are available.
3) I’ve been given the oldest, worn-out rooms at the property (the annex (aka “Diamond Wing”) with damp carpet and a ground-level city view. If you fly from overseas and arrive to one of these annex rooms, you’ll be disappointed.
4) There are NO late checkouts at this property--even for SPG Platinum. The front desk personnel’s canned response is always “NO”. If you ask why, they will say they are “Fully committed”. However, this is simply not correct information. Just because they say it with a smile doesn’t make it accurate. If you really press it, a manager will appear from the back office and s/he will make an exception 'just for you'. What happened to being "Fully committed?" Inconsistent.
In summary, this property is a NO. Rooms are antiquated and nothing special. Staff is certainly friendly, but they’re not empowered to do ANYTHING for you whatsoever. Shame on management for not positioning your frontline for success.
Two aspects of this hotel I enjoy:
1) Location: You’re directly on the sand of Waikiki and you’re in the heart of the shopping district.
2) Breakfast: Breakfast in the Banyan Court restaurant is amazing. Great views, and top notch buffet.
Two areas for improvement:
1) SPG Loyalty Program: My recommendation for this property is to post “Limited SPG Participation” on the SPG website. Your property simply does NOT honor SPG loyalty program benefits. Period.
2) Rooms: First, you need to demolish the “Diamond Wing”. It’s not consistent with the rest of your property and frankly, it’s not suitable for overnight guests. It’s from the 1970s and rooms haven’t been refreshed since. Not good.
For SPG elite members…
Do not stay at this property if you are accustomed to using/receiving your SPG benefits. This property simply doesn’t participate.
