The elevator was one of the best I've seen in the hotels across USA. It was fast and waiting time is short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alan13 I loved the vast majority of the Hotel features.
The only negative was the noise from delivery trucks early in the morning. I normally get up at 6:00am.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Phoenix Silly...go next door.
We just checked into the Sheraton Waikiki for a three night stay. Having stayed at the remarkable Royal Hawaiian in the past, we thougt we would give the Sheraton a try, as our 12 year old was intrigued by the pool area. What a disaappointment. Check in process was fine, but the staff clearly was not used to giving the "SPG" platinum spiel, and we reminded them multiple times of status, more to make sure we were on the same page rather than to tout our status. The first room had no furniture...this is not a joke. We were told that with the renovation, it was decided that chairs, etc. were superfluous (my word). No SPG floor, no amenities, etc. So, we requested and got another "upgraded room"...still no furniture, two beds that literally listed to the side, no water, no robes, but a view of the ocean. I get the view appeal, although we stated multple times we didn't care about the view, but I think a chair with a back is pretty much standard at any motel. Thankfully, we are only staying three nights...but that doesn't mean I am not checking availability at the Royal Hawaiian. As a final note, we were told thatthe suites get furniture...there are four suites on each floor...good luck!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mrtravel28 Best hotel in paradise
Had a great stay but it started with a few negatives. Had suite awards pending with suites showing available and then was told that SPG corporate canceled the request. Luckily the concierge was able to push the upgrade through and got us situated in the KAI suite, amazing. The hotel is huge and so is the resort fee. We went to the infinity pool and claimed the platinum chairs early in the morning only to be escorted out as one is supposed to reserve those weeks earlier, would have been nice to know. Brett at the pool however made it right and we got a complimentary cabana the next day. However the larger pool was closed that day without prior notice so once again, great to pay a resort fee for that!
The lounge at this property is huge, however feels like a marketplace. There is a register there and a very pro- Japanese only staff. SPG should remind them that a Sheraton lounge is mainly for business travelers who earned access through loyalty, not a way to squeeze $100 from a family of four by promising them authentic Japanese food for breakfast. Complimentary are only beer and some wines everything else is nickel and diming. No mixed drinks at the lounge either......I thought we were in Hawaii? Compared to a lounge for Diamond members in a hotel down the street, this lounge leaves a lot to be desired....come on, bring to pina coladas and mai tais to the lounge or get rid of a lounge and just convert it into a restaurant for all the loyal guests from East Asia.
I would however stay at this hotel again as it is the nicest hotel in Waikiki overall, if they solve the lounge issues I listed it would be and unbelievable place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mike1979 Great Location But Lacking in Room Quality
This hotel is rated a 4 star hotel. From the outside, everything about the hotel is 4 star quality: Nice pools (awesome slide by the way), awesome lounge bar (RumFire), but the rooms definitely need improvement. We booked a City View room and got the 10th floor. As I walked into the room, it smelled very stale. The decor looks to have been remodeled, but the floor looks dated. Also, there was a seating bench in front of the bed that had traces of baby powder on there still. Plus in the bathroom, I saw a piece of hair still left in the tub. Their room service brochure looks like someone spilled water on it as it was crinkly in touch. It's these attention to detail things that disappoint me for a 4 star hotel. I do realize that there are so many rooms to clean and maybe not enough staffing, but that doesn't mean you should cut corners on making sure that a room is clean for the next guest. Rather than call housekeeping or the front desk to complain, we just decided to get our room serviced the next day, where we indicated that we wanted all the linens and bathroom towels changed. They did a good job then of making sure we got a clean set to use. But I still saw the powder on that bench seat.
Overall, this is a decent hotel to stay at. Its located perfectly in Waikiki. I had a fun time with the pool slide. The drinks are so good there too. (Scorched Strawberry to be exact). I really just wished they paid more attention to the room cleanliness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carmonooch Back for at least 30th time
As you see by title, we keep going back. And the main reason we have to tell you is that the Sheraton staff are incredibly welcoming and have become great friends. And every trip we do meet some staff members that we had not met before. Happas is a new pizza offering, and not only do some of our favorite people work there (Issabel, Ropita and Cindy), the pizza is EXCELLENT. And you do not have to get a whole pizza, but by the gigantic slice. Kai Market Buffet is excellent with Roy and another Cindy working there -- just good people that we enjoy seeing. One of our favorite people is YanYing -- our housekeeper. She works very hard and and so pleasant and we look forward to seeing her every year. Jonesy (the Ambassador we call him) because he just keeps us laughing. No wonder we want to come back. We met 2 really neat workers at the pool this year (Brett and Zachary). Just a pleasure to see and talk to every day. (and laugh about things also). So give this resort onb Waikiki a try, and talk to these wonderful people who want to make your stay something special, and maybe you will meet other guests like we have, that come back year after year for many of the same reasons we do. The turtles right out in front of the Infinity pool, the views of Diamond Head, and many things to walk to from the Sheraton. Enjoy!!
