Beautiful hotel, great food, easy access to beach, pool was small but perfect size for our kids...as you spend most of the time in the waves anyways. Great location.

When you drive up and they opened the car door for you, you new right away that you were going to be taken care of. The hotel and all its staff met our expectations

Rated 4 out of 5 by Msr111 In line with expectations
Overall nice stay, in line with expectations, nothing that would make you think the hotel goes the "extra-mile" for their customers though. Beach bar is very nice!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dougan The hotel is tired
The facilities at the hotel are poor and the service is weak. The pool is miniscule and it is impossible to get a seat. unbelievably they ran out of beach towels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bacchus49 Slow Valet
Average wait for valet was 20-30 minutes. Although they were friendly & professional, it took entirely too long to get our car each time we requested.

The staff was outstanding. Great hotel and views. Had tried to use the platinum suite upgrade, but unable to accommodate. Still had a very nice room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SPL77 The Moana Surfrider continues to give us a reason to visit Waikiki!
We were never interested in staying in Honolulu or Waikiki until we spent a week at the Moana Surfrider. We've become more impressed with each visit.

We weren't recognized as Starwood preferred guests. We were not offered a welcome gift. Pool area and beach were too crowded, no chairs available.

The location and facility entirely met our needs during our stay. The best part of the stay was the daily yoga class held in the mornings.

We have stayed at the Moana 8 times and have never had a bad experience. If you enjoy romantic and historic hotels the Moana is for you.

My fourth stay here, nearly a week using points, and still in my top three hotels worldwide.
I'm mystified that the Starwood branding people have downgraded it to a Westin given its historic standing - and if you have a wooden frame structure as you do in the original building then do you REALLY want to encourage the footsteps of small children racing around being transmitted though every floor/ceiling?
I love the wind wafting off the sea straight through the classic lobby; one step inside and you've left the traffic of Kalakaua Ave a world away.
My single gripe was the "Resort Charge" - that was on the booking confirmation, but which I initially overlooked - of USD 25/day. It gave me a whole page of goodies, not a single one of which I wanted, or needed as a non-family, SPG Gold For Life member. This issue was resolved after a genial chat with the VERY helpful Duty Manager. If it's good financial value for families who are not Gold/Platinum etc. then let them do the numbers and opt-IN, not force those who don't want it to opt-OUT (if they take the time to question it).
We had a SUPERB dinner at the Verandah, though the breakfast is way over-priced.
