Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • 2 blocks from the beach
  • All rooms have balconies, large flat-screen TVs and pull-out sofas
  • Free breakfast with ample choice of hot and cold items
  • Several dining options, from a 24-hour casual restaurant to a Starbucks
  • Small pool with a large sun deck, fire pits, and comfy seating
  • 24-hour fitness center with up-to-date equipment and natural light
  • Family and accessible rooms available upon request
  • Over 4,000 square feet of meeting space, and a business center
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout

Cons

  • Some rooms are small
  • Fee for valet parking

Bottom Line

The Hyatt Place is a family-friendly, mid-range option located a couple of blocks from the beach. It features 426 rooms, all equipped with large flat-screen TVs with on-demand movies, pull-out sofas, and balconies. The deep blue accent walls give rooms a smart, contemporary look, but decor is generic with few Hawaiian touches, and some rooms are small. Property highlights include a small pool surrounded by a large sun deck with plenty of seating and shaded areas; several casual dining options, and a fitness center with high-end equipment. But those who want a beachfront location might want to compare prices at the nearby Marriott Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A couple of blocks from the beach, and within walking distance of some attractions

On the quieter, eastern end of Waikiki, the Hyatt Place sits near some of the smaller hotels in the area, such Hotel Renew. Most of Waikiki's shopping malls and its iconic hotels, like the Moana Surfrider and the Royal Hawaiian, are a five- to 10-minute walk west, and there's a feeling, for better or for worse, that the hotel is just on the border of where the action starts.

The property is a couple of blocks from Waikiki's main drag, Kalakaua Avenue, a touristy, mile-long stretch of shops, restaurants, and high-rise hotels that runs along Waikiki Beach on Oahu's southeast coast. Kalakaua offers a curious blend of mainland creature comforts and local flavor. On the sidewalks, Japanese tourists intermingle with tanned locals, surfboards under their arms, on their way to the beach to catch a few waves after work. On both sides of the street, high-end retailers -- Tiffany, Cartier, and yes, even an Apple store -- are interspersed with indoor malls and streetside vendors hawking cheap seashell jewelry and T-shirts. Seemingly every mid-market chain restaurant can be found here -- Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, Tony Romas -- along with more than a handful of Starbucks and fast-food joints. And towering above it all: 40-story, thousand-room hotels like the Grand Hyatt and Princess Kaiulani dotting the landscape like pins in a cushion.

  • 18-minute drive to Honolulu International Airport
  • Wide variety of shopping, dining, and drinking -- all within walking distance
  • 5-minute walk to Honolulu Zoo
  • 7-minute walk to Kapiolani Park, an oasis of (relative) calm for people-watching and local flavor
  • 12-minute walk to the Waikiki Aquarium
  • 7-minute drive to Diamond Head Crater Park and Diamond Head Beach Park
  • 18-minute drive to the Pearl Harbor Memorial
