Rated 4 out of 5 by KimD13 Ideal location and friendly staff
My mom and I arrived at the Sheraton for a 5 night stay. We were offered a complimentary upgrade to an ocean view room after my original booking in a partial ocean view room. The girl at the front desk (didn't get her name) was very nice and accommodating. I could not ask for better service.
Although the rooms are basic and could use upgrades, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed our room to the fullest. The room was clean and the views were to die for! Room service was prompt and the staff was very friendly.
We saw TURTLES swimming in front of the infinity pool almost every day of our stay. We also had a great view of Diamond Head and the pool area.
I read some people had issues with "thin walls". We were lucky not to have this issue. We were on the 7th floor. I slept like a baby and I'm generally a light sleeper.
Only negative....there was a couple of people smoking on their balcony during our stay. I'm a non-smoker and had to return to my room for 10 minutes after enjoying coffee on the balcony to avoid the disgusting smell. I think it would be nice for the hotel to post a "non-smoking" sign on the balconies if they are indeed a non-smoking area. What I consider a smoking "issue" would not stop me from staying at this hotel again.
I certainly recommend this hotel for couples, families and general travel.
Thank you Sheraton for a wonderful stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy always a winner here
I always stay here when in Hawaii and am always happy. As a platinum member of SPG I used my suite upgrade and was given a 2 room suite. I have to admit I was a little shocked when I realize that there was a murphy bed in the living room so it would be great for families. I was only there with my husband so the bed stayed in the closet.
From the welcome gift of a bag to fill with goodies in their shop to club lounge access we were impressed.
This is one of the nicest clubs in Hawaii with wonderful food for breakfast and wine and beer at happy hour along with great food.
Rumfire is one of my favorite places to go for a drink and they always have good music. We were pleasantly surprised this time with the addition of a music group from a local California college that played each night - it was a full band with singers and we knew all of the songs. They were out by the pool area and just added to the fun of our stay.
My husband decided when we return to Hawaii this is the only place he wants to stay from now on- Thanks to all

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan2000 Great location
Perfect location, nice facilities. Need to add a second shower for folks coming from beach to pool area, one is not enough for 1600 rooms and thousands of guests.

I was pleasantly surprised at the level of kindness and ability to accommodate the needs of the Sheraton guests. The staff exemplified the Aloha Spirit. The hotel is conveniently located on the strip for great shopping. The pools and beach access are great. Thank you for a lovely Spring Break!

Great visit! Don't know why SPG platinum members would want to stay anywhere else in Waikiki! Great upgraded room, great view of Diamondhead as well as the 4th of July Fireworks. One of the best infinity pools anywhere! Right in the middle of everything.!

The WLAN connection did not usually work at all. The room cleaning was always ongoing when returning to room and lasted a long time. No reasonable breakfast possibilities (very expensive). No possibility for later check-out.

Staff was very friendly and very prompt with anything we asked for!! That means a lot! In the middle of everything, food, shopping, etc....After a long 10 hour flight it was great to be met with the true Aloha spirit! Music by John Valentine was a plus! Look forward to our next stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OfSoundMind Nice on-the-beach option.
Great hotel, nice amenities.
It is very busy though, not a chill out and relax spot.
Factor in the $30 resort fee.
Great staff. I love the Courtesy Rooms they have for you if you come in before your room is ready.

We had a great time in general however this year Sheraton Waikiki had no entertainment for its guest until 3p. In years past Sheraton was festive from 8am to the night firework show with live MC, games, give aways for the kids, and music. Not this year sad...

The spirit of Hawaii is alive at the Sheraton Waikiki. From Allison and Christine at the front desk, to Stanley and Mitch in the Concierge Lounge, they make you feel welcomed and special. We stayed a week at the hotel and everyday was great. It is truly our home away from home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackson13 NIce Option for a Waikiki Stay
My wife and I have stayed at this hotel a number of times while visiting Oahu to take advantage of the location and the views of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. A negative is that the rooms are somewhat dated and for some reason have no drawers to store your clothes, only shelves. On the positive side are the fantastic views, and I would recommend paying the extra cost to take advantage of them if you can. I believe all the rooms have balconies to enjoy these views from. The size of the hotel creates a somewhat chaotic arrival and check in process, but also means that there are many dining, drinking, shopping and service options.
Some other highlights of this hotel include the location on the beach, a great adult pool and a very nice larger pool area for families. Unfortunately, it is very challenging to find a chair at the adult pool and it would be nice if this area was somehow expanded. The location offers an extensive variety of activities, shopping and dining options within a short walk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdman36 Very nice week at the Sheraton Waikiki
From the time we arrived, we were treated like VIP's. From the suite upgrade, to the Platinum benifits offered. The club room was great, for both breakfast, and evening food and drinks. The staff was kind, and friendly everywhere we went. We loved the place, and will come back some day soon.

We came to Hawaii for my daughters wedding , and required several rooms with guests coming and going on various dates.
The Sheraton made it easy.
Great service and kind assistance from all staff concerned.
Many thanks to Brandon Kaya and Julie Loo.

I stay at the hotel two weeks every year. My last stay was the week of August 20th. The hotel seems full and the service was not a good as it normally is when I go there. The front desk seemed to be under staffed and the wait took a while. The food did not seem to be a good as in the past.

Rated 2 out of 5 by hawaii25 hotel not what we expected for a Shereton Hotel
Rooms were runned down, bathroom grout rusty and nasty looking for Shereton.
Pool was overcrowded, other Hotel guest using pool area. Never was able to get a seat close to pool without reserving early in the morning, or paying (really?) for a seat, ridiculous! Drinks and food overpriced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim3635 Excellent stay
Stayed for 2 nights Jun 15-17, 2012. Was upgraded to top floor (31) with ocean view of Diamond Head. Very nice. I had asked for a suite when I checked in, but the room provided was very nice and clean. Lounge was nice and provided nice breakfast, but was only open from 6-10am and 4-8pm. Would have been nice to have access to the lounge during other hours to relax....especially since it was so windy during one of our days there. Lounge staff was great. I had stayed at this hotel a few times in years past, and they made some GREAT remodels, to include the adult only infiniti pool, seperate pool area for families with a water slide, nice lobby, and Rum Fire bar. Not sure if the resort charge is worth it at $25.00 per day, as were not able to take advantage of any resort activities, nor did we use the parking, and internet would have been included anyway as a lifetime platinum. Overall a nice hotel, great location, and friendly service. Thanks for honoring platinum status...as not all Starwood hotels do.

Brett around the infinity pool area was simply outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. I looked forward to seeing his family face every morning and bought a great pair of Maui Mim sunnies from him. I believe the poolside menu could have some more variety

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharon5a A beautiful resort hotel
The hotel services and facilities are everything you would expect from a world class hotel group, day to day the resort was ran very well and staff professional at all times. The cleanliness of the room was not of a high standard though, a shame as it let our overall impression down.

I paid the daily resort charge and did not receive water bottle a couple days. when notifying the front desk 3 separate times to bring it up, they never did.
Also, as a Gold member, expected to have some additional amenity or service, but was only granted 1 visit to the club lounge.

For a terrific location and beautiful views, Sheraton Waikiki is a great find. Lots of uniques shopping opportunities on property (love the hat shop) and million more a stones throw away. Plenty to do or a great place to relax and enjoy the hotel amenities. Kind and responsive staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Denise57 Very nice hotel
Overall, an excellent experience. Only one criticism in that whatever hot items were served in the Leahi lounge on Floor 30 were tepid. I realize that, with people serving themselves, burn issues need to be addressed. However, tepid entrees and scrambled eggs are most unappetizing.

The facility exceeds any other hotel on Waikiki Beach. Best pools and service, the Rum Fire lounge, the Edge Bar, your right there watching the turtles and beach activities.
From the front desk to guest services, you are treated with Aloha spirit and they make reservations happen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WaltR Suite was dark like a cave
We were upgraded to a mid size suite. It was run down and while the view was nice from the balcony, the rooms were dark and cave like. The bathroom was oddly very hot all the time too. Would have preferred the standard ocean facing room we booked on a high floor over this 'suite'

Despite extensive renovations to the lobby and pool area the rooms (Maila Suite room 1844) just for eample or tired, worn out, dirty with ripped carpet, no water pressure, old furniture, filthy showers and toilets - all for $800 a night. But there are new flat screens in the room

Your house keeping was really bad. They had to replace two fridges to get us a working one.
Each day the house keeper was forgetting something one day no coffee one day no cups ...each time we had to call.
For a hotel like this caliber it's not acceptable.

The Sheraton is my favorite place to stay in Waikiki when visiting on business. The staff is accommodating, rooms are comfortable and beds are amazing. Not to mention, the location can't be beat. The hotel has everything that a business (or leisure) traveler might need.

One of my favorite things about this hotel is the view and the comfortable beds. I also like the fact that everything is there at your finger tips, such as shopping, restaurants etc. It's a perfect place to stay if traveling alone as a woman and wanting a safe get-a-way.
