All the hallmarks of an upscale beachfront hotel can be found here, including multiple restaurants, sweeping ocean views, and family-friendly activities. What makes the Sheraton Waikiki stand out is its sheer size -- it has a slew of features, including bustling shops and nightlife venues packed with both guests and Honolulu locals. The location, amenities, and views are hard to beat, but they come at the cost of sometimes overwhelming crowds. Service is generally good, but with over 1,600 rooms and so many guests, it’s not always timely. Those looking for a more relaxed stay may find it at the comparable, Outrigger Reef On The Beach, a slightly cheaper alternative on the same prime stretch of sand.
