This three-pearl, 81-room boutique hotel is located in Waikiki, about a 10-minute walk from the beach. It's a funky little property with retro-inspired decor and a relaxed atmosphere that's different from the massive resorts nearby. Air-conditioned rooms are modern and colorful, and all include efficiency kitchenettes and furnished lanais or terraces with either city or mountain views. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant or bar, but a free breakfast buffet with eggs and a waffle station is served daily. The outdoor heated pool has a wrap-around pool deck, barbecue area, and play area for kids. There's also a small fitness center with modern cardio equipment. Extra perks include free afternoon snacks and beach towels. Park Shore Waikiki is another good value option, adding a beach front location and on-site restaurants.

Family-friendly boutique hotel with retro-inspired decor and relaxed atmosphere

Interiors of this family-friendly boutique hotel, such as the airy lobby, are retro-inspired, with plenty of comfy couches

Coconut Waikiki Hotel is a nice alternative amid the massive, brand-name mega-resorts found across Waikiki. While it's small size plays a role in that, the trendy and bright decor certainly does its part too. The lobby is airy, and features design details like white walls, light floor tiles, and floor-to-ceiling glass block windows that allow plenty of natural light to flood in. The decor is retro-inspired, with monkey-pod coffee tables and plenty of comfy couches where guests can take a quiet break, including a cozy TV lounge with book-filled shelves. There’s an over-sized chalk-board updating guests with daily surf conditions and weather reports written in colorful typography, plus a breakfast area that includes long wooden tables. Patio doors open out onto a terrace with outdoor seating. The outdoor pool is a nice spot to relax during the day, with sun loungers for tanning. Owing to its removed-from-the-beach location, the Coconut Waikiki mostly attracts couples seeking a quiet getaway, though many families stay here for the hotel's family-friendly facilities.
