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.

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.

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 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 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 4 out of 5 by Tracey Easy access to the best of Waikiki
Great and easy location for the beach, shopping and dining. As an SPG Gold, I got a nominal upgrade (as per the normal upgrades I tend to see,) but had a great sunset with partial ocean view. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff was very warm and welcoming.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shelley007 Best Spot in Waikiki
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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOTOWN Million $ views and location
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.

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

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'

Rated 4 out of 5 by Travelalot33 Good Club Lounge and good Platinum recognition
We like the Sheraton Waikiki for its pools, beach access, ocean front rooms, and activities such as feeding the Koi fish. Good Platinum status recognition by hotel and staff. Maybe the best Club Lounge for a Sheraton in the U.S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeuckers Best pool ever!
We love hawaii but the infinity pool made our vacation! Best view of diamond head and Waikiki beach. Adults only so there were no kids ! With the giant floating beanbags and the dj Saturdays!!! It was like a Vegas pool party without the drunks! And with a breathtaking view!!!

Treated exceptionally well! Stayed overnight for my daughter's birthday. Staff and facitlities were amazing.
The front desk staff of Chirstine, Allison and Jennifer was exceptional! The host and attendants (Stephanie) in the Executive lounge were very friendly and helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 2K27 Rooms need update
The room I was given seemed to be in the "old" portion of the hotel facing the front. The room itself was like an older motel room, not what I would expect for the cost of this facility. The windows were butting up to a flat roof, not even a city view. Very disappointing.

I'd like to commend Jennifer in Guest Services for her exceptional effort in difficult circumstances to rearrange rooms to enable us to be located near to our grandchildren during the AIMS Convention earlier this month. Her diligence and helpfulness was much appreciated.

Upon checking in the room was dirty had used soap and wash clothes in bathroom. After calling front desk instead of sending someone to clean room, they sent sheets and new bathroom washcloths and towels. Had to go to front desk to request to be moved to another room.

sliding glass doors were too thin to bar out the noise of dropping metal and construction.

Wonderful hotel at the end of Waikiki Beach. Great access to all the amenities of Waikiki as well as the ability to get away from the madness if you choose. Best pools in Waikiki and a terrific staff that was helpful all over the property. Would absolutely return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VAD714 Good Time at Sheraton Waikiki
After an initial hiccup with an upgrade (we were placed in a newly painted room with very strong paint fumes), we were moved to our original room and had a very pleasant time. The hotel had a variety of "Things To Do", a great location on Waikiki, and great views.

Our stay at the Sheraton Waikiki was fantastic. The customer service was 5-star. Not only were the staff aware of our needs, they continually went above and beyond to insure that our stay was flawless. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Honolulu.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tbonee Good and Bad
The good; public areas and most of the hotel staff were excellent.
The bad; rooms need updating and cleaning, pool staff lacked any sort of management and were generally unhelpful, hotel design created a wind tunnel effect at the kids pool area.
Overall, just OK.
