General description:............................(Back to top)

  • This slender 44 floor, 596 room tower was originally built in 1984 . It was operated under the Maile Sky Court name from the start, first was an Outrigger, later on it became an Ohana (still under Outrigger). Towards the end of 2007 Castle Hotels and Resorts took over management for 2 years, in 2009 was controlled by Aqua Hotels (later Aston-Aqua) and currently is under the Holiday Inn Express brand all these are very well known and well established hotel companies in Hawaii and the Pacific.
    The rooms are not big but they are adequate for 2 people. The common areas are spacious considering the hotel's category, with a pool and a Jacuzzi. The lobby is adequate with 2 different entrances and parking is plentiful, covered and secured but like all hotels in Waikiki, for a fee.
  • The hotel underwent a 30 million dollar renovation during 2016.

  • Is one of the few one star hotels with a jacuzzi in the pool area. Unfortunately the pool is very small.
  • If you are going to have a car, is good to know that even though parking is very expensive, it is quite plentiful and that is a lot more that what can be said for a lot of hotels in Waikiki.

What you may not like about this hotel:............................(Back to top)

  • This hotel has a mandatory extra daily "Convenience fee", that is not included in your room total until you check out. These fees, also known as "resort fees" or "amenities fees", are being charged in several area hotels and range from $10 to $40 extra per day.
  • Since it is a large hotel with 44 floor and almost 600 rooms, at peak times during the day elevators seem to take "for ever".

  • The pool area is very small.
  • Due to the number of rooms, this hotel common areas always feel very crowded.
  • Rooms are VERY small and have adequate windows but no balcony. With a balcony would be more acceptable but since none of the units have them it may feel too small for many people specially considering that for security reasons the windows only open 4 inches.
  • If you want to be on the beach or across the street from it, this place is not for you. The beach is not far but it takes 6 minutes to walk to the beach.
  • Based on your particular needs and the objective of your trip, this hotel may have other pros and cons that you should consider, call us at (808) 394-2112 for more information.051211
