Rated 3 out of 5 by SunnyGirl Good location but needs a facelift
I was very disappointed by the Princess K. My room was tiny, very dated, and depressing. I still can't believe the rate I was charged for it. It is close to the beach, lots of shopping, restaurants and attractions. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SashaAl Overall pleasant
If not to checkout nightmare made by Ping when we almost missed our ride to airport, overall we had pleasant time at the hotel. Every year for many years we are staying at this hotel, but have never experienced such a
disservice in time of checkout.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SLEL A shame it is to close
This was our third visit to this hotel, and we have no idea where we will stay next year, all the other Starwood properties are too expensive. This hotel has great location totally adequate rooms, a pleasant pool area, and a good bar and restaurant.

Rated 2 out of 5 by carve1101 Poor excuses
Made a reservation for a king bed but when I went to the room it had two double beds. When I asked the front desk, they told me none was available. They should have informed me at check in. After listening to their excuses, It was all poor excuses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by David10 Disappointment!!!!!!
This property is worn out and should be either completely renovated or torn down. I have stayed in a number of SPG properties and this is a new low. A significant number of items don't work right or have issues. The list is long and comprehensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sharon11 Very Central to Wakikii
Very Central to Wakikii, great facilities and staff met any needs requested.
Also we stayed when there was a Tsunami warning and the staff handled it with great professionalism. This is our third stay at Sheraton Wakikii and will not be our last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gen50Bil Great view from our room.
I have stayed at this Hotel many, many, many times in the past 40 plus years and this was the best of all of them. It was very nice to be upgraded because I was an SPG guest. I am very loyal to Starwood Hotels and nice to be recognized as such..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Norm67 The hotel was right in the middle of everything
Loved the staff! Much Aloha and mahalo! You can stop ANY staff member, ask a question and Aloha oozes from them all! Smiles everywhere! The often recommended great sights and areas that locals frequent to get that authentic Hawaiian experience

Rated 3 out of 5 by DMITCH Noise in Rooms
Had to contact hotel operator (security) for noise neighbors (since wall insulation was non-existant). Noise continued well into the AM hours without security contacting room occupants to "quiet down". UNACCEPTABLE in "vacation paradise"!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jen777 Location is good; nothing else
The room is so small, furniture was not placed in a functional way. Bathroom is totally dysfunctional, there is no leg room for the toilet due to supporting beam blocking one side of the toilet. The worst hotel stay ever.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ScottyDub Hotel needs a major remodel
As a longtime SPG member I was very disappointed with the hotel. It was run down, dirty and in poor condition overall. I stay exclusively with SPG hotels when I travel (3x/mo) and this is one of the worst Sheratons I have ever stayed at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gigi44 This hotel has wonderful staff.
This hotel is ideally located near retail, restaurants and the beach. The staff is friendly and responsive. The beautiful property has every amenity a person or family would need. We spent a wonderful week there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chudzy65 nice hotel
over all I think the Hotel was nice , every thing was clean, rooms could use a little updating, they were working on the Lobby , painting , trim ,etc. during my stay. Pool and beach service was nice. I would stay here again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LFHAK Extremely Disappointing
Nothing close to what we expected or experienced. Lousy attitude at the front desk; surly servers poolside; horrible fish smell every time we got on or off the elevator. What a disappointment after so many years as an SPG Gold member.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Timmys1357 Great location
I enjoyed my stay here. The breakfast buffet was very good. My only issues were that the bathroom was a little dated and the a/c could have been a little cooler.
Great shops/restaurants close by and Waikiki a comfortable walk away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Minnie45 Great Waikiki Hotel
This hotel is in an excellent, central location in Waikiki. The facilities are beautiful and it boasts one of the best pools in the area. The staff is exceptionally accomodating and friendly. I high recommend The Princess Kiualani.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jeff1005 This hotel needs a overhaul
This hotel has a great location but needs updating. The furnature in my room was dated and worn out along with the tile and carpet. However it was clean. Also the internet did not work well when I tried to work from my room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoyM Would go back again
The Big Kahuna Service by the pool staff was the best!!!! Loved going to the beach with our chairs and towels. But the best service was the water and fruits they delivered to us at the beach. I always looked forward to it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amir50 Honolulu Sheraton
The hotel needs significant updating. The rooms, particularly the bathrooms are seriously out dated. The hotel location is ok and the staff was fine. In a nutshell there are better choices in Honolulu for a little more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by santri1969 Good short stay hotel but facilities need upgrade
We stayed with family in 2 connecting rooms for 1 night before we moved to Kaui and the Big Island. Efficient hotel with walking access to donwtown Oahu. Hotel in severe need of renovation and upgrades - rooms worn out.

The Princess Kaiulani is perhaps showing her age compared to her splashier siblings in Waikiki, but the staff demonstrates the aloha spirit better than most of those other properties! It is also provides the best value

OK but a bit noisy.
Disappointed room internet in compulsory daily charge was not wireless so useless for iphone & ipad (which most people travel with these days).
Booked baggage assistance for checkout but they forgot

Rated 4 out of 5 by luvh14 excellent staff
Our room was classified as a city view which ended up being a view of a garage. The reservation desk manager corrected the situation and was very sorry for the problems we had. We very much appreciated his help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizDJ Hotel is close to everything
Hotel price met our expenses. It is close to everything even if beach is only across the street. It was all worth it. Highly recommend if you want a nice hospitable and friendly staff, if beachfront is not important.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SarahK1970 Sound insulation must be improved.
I was in room 380. Though the room itself was okay (clean bathroom and bedding), the level of street noise heard was extreem and the air conditioner was loud and did not cool the room to a comfortable level.
