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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 Chuck45 Needs updating
Stayed in 2 different rooms at this property, first one the bathtub didn't drain properly, the second one there was no individual thermostat.
Hotel really needs updating and be brought to a Sheraton Standard.

We had a great welcome at the check point and every single day the staff was with great attitude. Very good service
We had a nice ocean view, however the room was a little bit small for a couple.

Just steps from the beach without higher hotel prices. Good place for families. Steps away from shopping and eateries or enjoy food discounts at hotel. Staff helpful but could have smiled more.
Would stay again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KB228 Avoid this property
I was terribly disappointed with my recent stay at this hotel. The lobby was recently renovated and the pool area is nice. The rooms have not been renovated since, what appears to be, the late 1970s/early 1980s. The rooms are clean and we did have a nice sized balcony with ocean views. This property would be satisfactory (especially considering its excellent location) if not for the erradic and neglectful staff. Other guests were bonding over the comical lack of service in the pool restaurant area. When we booked tours through the tours and attraction desk, I asked for recommendations. The gentleman responded, "I have no idea. I'm from here so I don't take these tours." In one instance, we waited 35 minutes for a scoop of ice cream we ordered at the restaurant by the pool. This is only a sample of multiple instances that occured during our week long stay. Mid-week I stopped by the front desk and asked to speak to a manager. I was told the manager would call me "if he had time." This property does not meet the spg standard. It is in close proximity to other spg properties and those properties do not have the same customer service issues this hotel does. There were a couple staff members (such as the gentleman manning the front entrance) that were friendly, but it was uncommon. I highly recommend avoiding this hotel if possible. It is not worth the way you will be treated. Also, the parking garage does not have elevators and, even with your parking pass, it takes a solid 5 minutes to depart because the attendant has to copy information from your license and pass to a spreadsheet each time. It does not seem to be the most efficient way to do things.
One nice thing that I would be remiss to point out was the hotel sent a fruit basket to our room when we checked in. It was a lovely sentiment and I really appreciated it.

This hotel is the worst I have had with Sheraton. The room is very small, furniture is old, poor soundproofing, room cleanliness is like a motel. Though the staff are friendly just like most of Sheraton hotels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Allen58 Service Call and disturbing guest noise
Airconditioner was not working when I arrived in my room. It took three calls and an hour and a half for maintenance to arrive to fix the issue.
Was woken up by noisy guests in the adjacent room after 10pm.

We stayed at this hotel at the end of November. The hotel was in a great location - close to shops, the beach and attractions.
The hotel is a bit outdated (decor) but the staff were friendly and courteous.

The customer service was bad. The line would be huge and if someone asked questions about the line they would be told to stay in line. It was not SPG quality. I will never stay at this hotel again.

The reason we keep coming back to this hotel is the friendly staff, from front desk check-in, pool staff, pool staff and cleaning . All are happy and have treated us with respect and friendliness.
