Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Oceanfront location overlooking Ala Wai Yacht Harbor
  • Fabulous sunset views from all rooms
  • Bright fitness center
  • Free shuttles to Waikiki, beaches, and Hawaii Prince Golf Club
  • 27-hole golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay
  • Golf lessons with the Brian Mogg Golf Academy
  • Room service available
  • A Japanese restaurant and a Hawaiian restaurant

Cons

  • Not directly on the beach
  • Wi-Fi and parking at a cost
  • Some complaints about thin walls

Bottom Line

Every one of the 541 rooms and suites at the upscale Hawaii Prince Hotel has an ocean view, overlooking the picturesque Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, and each room's large bay windows open wide to let in Pacific breezes. The hotel is next door to the 76-acre Ala Moana Beach Park (and its half-mile beach), two minutes from the convention center, and a 15-minute walk from the heart of Waikiki. It's an excellent choice for business travelers as well as golfers, who will likely enjoy the hotel's golf course and academy.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Large resort with beautiful marina views

The Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki consists of two guestroom towers linked by the pool deck located five floors above the street. Business travelers and groups will find plenty to do, between the 27-hole golf course, golf academy, tennis courts, swimming pool, hot tub, and four on-site restaurants and bars. Everything at the Hawaii Prince is big and impressive, including an assortment of huge tropical floral arrangements in the lobby, and the sweeping views of the yacht club, visible from nearly every window in the place. Pretty rock gardens and other Japanese touches (including traditional Japanese breakfast and a sushi restaurant) give an Asian feel to the hotel and the surrounding grounds.

 Location

Near the convention center and a 15-minute walk to the heart of Waikiki

The Hawaii Prince Hotel sits on a busy street overlooking the Ala Wai Marina. It's a fifteen-minute walk to the heart of Waikiki for nightlife and dining, and a two-minute walk to the convention center, which makes the Hawaii Prince convenient for business travelers. The Ala Moana shopping center is five minutes away on foot, as is the 76-acre Ala Moana Beach Park.

 Rooms

Fantastic views, comfortable beds, and spacious bathrooms

The ocean views are the best feature of the rooms at the Hawaii Prince Hotel. While rooms do not have lanais, the large bay windows can be fully opened to let in the island breeze. Beds are comfortable, and the decor in shades of blue and white is contemporary if a bit generic. Marble tile bathrooms are large, with separate water closets. Rooms include mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and safes.

 Features

Golf, fitness center, lavish buffets, and a day spa

The Hawaii Prince Hotel has plenty of on-site features and services, but the 27-hole golf course and lessons with the Brian Mogg Golf Academy are among its most popular. Other features include a sunlit fitness center (equipped with basic cardio and weight machines) and several restaurants, including Prince Court, which specializes in contemporary island cuisine (both a la carte and buffet-style), and Hakone, which serves Japanese food and sushi. There is also a golf club restaurant and a cocktail lounge, and guests can also relax by the pool on canopied chaises or day beds with cold treats from the snack bar. The Yamano Day Spa and Beauty Salon, located in the lobby, is a restful oasis with a range of services, from massages and facials to hair cuts and pedicures.

 Bottom Line

Every one of the 541 rooms and suites at the upscale Hawaii Prince Hotel has an ocean view, overlooking the picturesque Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, and each room's large bay windows open wide to let in Pacific breezes. The hotel is next door to the 76-acre Ala Moana Beach Park (and its half-mile beach), two minutes from the convention center, and a 15-minute walk from the heart of Waikiki. It's an excellent choice for business travelers as well as golfers, who will likely enjoy the hotel's golf course and academy.
