Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Fee for valet parking
  • Fee for fitness center access

Bottom Line

The 125-room Shoreline Hotel Waikiki, a Joie de Vivre Hotel is an upper-mid-range property located two blocks away from Kalakaua Avenue and less than a five-minute walk from Waikiki Beach. With retro furniture and bright, colorful artwork the hotel has a cute, 70s-inspired look and feel. There aren’t a lot of extras (a small rooftop pool and bright lobby with free coffee), but the hotel does provide an excellent location for an affordable price. There’s another Joie de Vivre Hotel not too far away, Coconut Waikiki, which is less expensive but farther from the beach.
