I’m an experienced traveler and a former Pacific Northwest tourism-industry authority. But even this, now, kamaaina (local resident) has learned to go with Discount Hotels Hawaii to book the best rates in Waikiki!  Not only do they know where the deals are, they provide unbiased, accurate reviews of numerous Honolulu properties.  Forget the websites.  Forget going anywhere else.  If you want accurate, honest information about where to stay in Honolulu/Waikiki and get the best room rates to boot, there’s only one place to book, and that’s Discount Hotels Hawaii! (And, no, they did NOT pay me to write this review, I just believe when, and where, you find great customer service, you should shout it out to the world!)

Thanks for the savings.

Dear Friends at DHH,

I have been using the services of DHH for the past 4 years.  Each time, I have been very pleased with the accommodations at the various hotels I booked.  And the prices are the best available anywhere.  My last visit to Waikiki was spent at one of the condos offered at the Royal Garden Hotel.  Everything at this place exhibits sheer elegance.  Extensive use of marble, with the finest fixtures.  The room was on the 20th floor with incomparable views.  The photos offered in your website of this property pretty well show what to expect, but on the other hand, they don't do justice to the real thing. 

Many thanks to the DHH staff for their help.  Keep up the good work.

Mahalo and Aloha,  George A.

Dear Hector,
Sincere thanks for your advice and for booking us into Aqua Bamboo for
our recent holiday.  The hotel was lovely and the outdoor area
delightful.  An oasis in Waikiki.  The staff were excellent and the
hotel was small enough to get to know them.  The first room we were
shown was on the side.  It  was too small with one bed.  Fortunately
it had not been cleaned so we were moved to a front room with 2 beds
and kitchenette.  Much nicer although noisy, but after the first night
we slept very well.  Would certainly book there again.  Thanks,
Joan C.

Hi Hector,
I recently booked a room with you for my two friends and daughter and I just wanted to say "THANK YOU!"  You were great to work with.  You were friendly, efficient, and got me the best deal in all of Waikiki!  When they couldn't get a flight back to the mainland and needed an extra night, you again came through.  You not only arranged for the extra night in a completely booked hotel but they got to stay in the same room and didn't have to move!  Plus, the room rate wasn't much more than what I had paid.  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!
I stay with relatives whenever I come to Hawaii but if I need to get a hotel room, you can be sure I will go through DiscountHotels.com.  I will also spread the word on the great customer service you provide.
Thank you again,
Okabe L.

Discount Hotels is the REAL DEAL! Got hotel for 6 nights right in downtown Waikiki for 1/2 price that front desk wanted. For a recently relocated college graduate trying to make ends meet they surely helped me out. Thanks again. If I have any family, friends come to Oahu I'll most certainly use Discount Hotels again!

Hello!  I just wanted to thank Hector for recommending the Waikiki Resort hotel for us on Tuesday.  It was fine for our family and has a superb location!  Thanks so much.

Hector, Angel, and everyone,
Just a quick note to let you know that I took the trip you set up.  Everything was wonderful and I sure appreciate all your help and assistance.
The room was great and the location was ideal.  Could not have asked for more.  I will certainly recommend you to everyone and use your services again.
Thank you so much,
Bill B.

Just a little word to thank you for finding a place to stay for us in Honolulu.
Have a nice day!

Dear Hector,
I just wanted to send a note to let you know I deeply appreciate the hotel you were able to get for my son last week.  He will be leaving for the Air Force in one month and wanted a little “get-away” before going into the service.  You were able to find him not only a great hotel (which they moved him and upgraded him!), you were quick to respond to my phone call and you had excellent customer service.  From now on, I will be telling ALL my friends to use you for their vacation needs is Hawaii. 
In great appreciation,
Julie R.

Hi Hector,

Just wanted to say thankyou - the accom was perfect!!!!!!!  And the deal was
great!!! and the service fantastic!!!!!!

I own 2 hotel representation companies myself in New Zealand, dealing with wholesalers etc on behalf of my properties and I can confidently say I am very impressed - great job!

Thanks for a great holiday and if you ever need help pushing fort sales from OZ then don't hesitate to drop me  a line

Cheers R.

Mahalo Kealani,
Just wanted to let you know I called and Angel said you were not there.  But wanted to let you know I did make reservation with the hotel that you reccomended.  I really wanted to talk to you, but Angel said you were not there today, and as he pointed out that the prices sometimes changes fast, so I do want to tell you many mahalo's for all you did and again I cannot tell you that you are such an asset to Discount Hawaii.  If you would like I would gladly write an "orchid letter", as you certainly deserve it, for number one you are so accommodating,and going that extra mile, truly the "aloha spirit" is alive with you!!!
Sally Y.-J.

Dear Hector,
 Thank you again, your service is just wonderful - your quick reply is most welcome and I really appreciate it.
 I spoke with Angel to do the booking this morning, he too was most helpful.
 I had visited Hawaii on another occasion before last year but hadn't known of discounthotels.com at that time - I am so glad to know of the company now, it's a welcome service you provide, you really assist people every day, and the service really helps those people who are stuck or unhappy in an awful hotel at a time when everything is at the lowest point - and then it only gets better!
 From my perspective, you seem to have the most rewarding job - you help people out every day and make them happy. And they're happy with you!
 THanking you again,
Judy L.

Dear Staff at Discount Hotels Hawaii ,
I want to thank you for your excellent service and profound expertise.  I was so overwhelmed and frustrated in trying to find a hotel that met my needs at a price I could afford.  You did a fantastic job and I couldn’t be happier.  I can’t believe how much time and energy I wasted before I found your brochure in Waikiki and decided to give you a call.
There is no reason to go to any other Hawaii hotel search site than yours.  You can’t beat the price, the service, and expertise.
 Discount Hotels Hawaii is the best!  All my friends know that you are the BEST!!
 Take care,
Dr. Carol H.

Thanks to you and Grace for our recent stay, and extension at the that you found for us in Waikiki.  Your efforts in negotiating our three day extension saved us over $200 from the best the front desk said they could do.
I am going to pass along your service to anyone and everyone I know of that is heading to Oahu.
Mahalo again.  (Ken from Canada)

I would like to thank all at Discount Hotels for their handling of our condo booking in Waikiki. I highly recommended Discount Hotels as we received excellent service and the accommodation that was booked for us was everything plus more than we expected. A big thank you to all the staff at Discount Hotels and we will be defiantly using you again for our next trip to Hawaii.
Kind Regards
Jenny O.

Thank you so much for such a great website.  It is refreshing to see such honest information.  I especially like how you (as a local Hawaiian company) give realist star ratings to the hotels.  So many sites bloat the ratings and I find myself disappointed when I get to the resort.  I also really appreciate your insight on "what a visitor may like" and "what a visitor may not like" about each resort.  I learned more from 5 minutes on your site than I did in 2 days of surfing other websites.

Discount Hotels Hawaii,
We just got back last night, and everything went extremely well. Thank-you for putting up the bookings we made, then cancellations and rebooking  while we changed our minds before we even got there, but you did it all for us without any hint of complaint and the most helpful attitude. When we arrived everything was exactly as we anticipated and our stay was very enjoyable. Last we checked all the other travel sites wanted $65 more a night that what we got through you and we got a great unobstructed view of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. Have recommended you to others and will call again.

          Thank you so much for responding to my email request. I don't want to take up much of your time however would like the Hawaii Better Business Bureau to be aware of what a great job the folks, "Grace and Hector" at Discount Hotels Hawaii are doing. You should be proud to have such a fine organization representing the State of Hawaii.
          The one and only time my wife and I have been to Hawaii was for our 40th wedding anniversary and we were on a cruise ship the whole time. For our 50th we wanted to see Waikiki and some of its historical treasures. Friends of our's returned from a holiday in Hawaii in October of 2010 and brought us back some brochures.
          As we had not made any accommodation arrangements the brochure from "Discount Hotels Hawaii" caught our eye and was worthy of a call. Before I called them I checked the Better Business Bureau of Hawaii's web site and found nothing that would have caused us any concen.
          I called the 800 number in October and spoke to Hector and when I told him our trip was planned for February 2011, rather than try and sell us accommodation at that days rate he suggested I call back in January when there should and could be some deals. I said to him. if I call back and there are no rooms available my wife will hunt him down. He said, if there are no rooms you can stay with me.
         January 12th I called Discount Hotels and spoke to Hector again and he found us very satisfactory accommodation at a very reasonable rate. The reservation was a " Prepaid No Cancellation Permitted" arrangement. By doing so we saved quite a few dollars and there was no way we were going to cancel our trip. 
        On February the 9th I had to take my wife to an evening medical clinic as she had picked up a bug of some sort. The medication  prescribed did not do the job and we had to return to the Doctor on February the 14th, two day's before our trip. The Doctor would not give her permission to fly resulting in me having to contact the airlines the shuttle and Discount Hotels to cancel the trip. I spoke to Grace at Discount Hotels and she was as disappointed as we were that the trip had to be cancelled. My next call was to our Insurance company to try and retrieve some of our funds. Later that day I received a call from Hector at Discount Hotels who advised he was going to try and sell our reservation to another customer and if successful we would receive a refund of some sort.
       On February the 18th we arrived back home from visiting a Doctor in Vancouver and found an email dated February 15th from Grace advising they had good news for us. Hector was successful in selling the accommodation and we should be receiving a full refund from the Hotel. I went on line later that day and every penny had been refunded to our credit card account.
       I sent a thank you email to Grace and Hector and I just wanted the Hawaii Better Business Bureau to know what a fine upstanding company Discount Hotels Hawaii is and you should be very proud to have them as a member of your organization, a credit to the people of Hawaii.
       Grace and Hector could have sold the accommodation, pocketed the money and know one would have been the wiser.

Dear Hector,

Aloha!  I would like to thank you for booking our hotels (and at the last minute - the Ramada Plaza at Waikiki).  My brother and I loved both hotels, especially the Ramada Plaza, as it was near both the Alamoana Center as well as Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon (which was my personal favourite).  We had such a great time that I wasn't ready to come back to New Zealand.  I will be back to Hawaii for a visit and will definitely use Discount Hotels again.  I'll also be recommending my family and friends.

Thanks again Hector.

Mahalo and fa'afetai,

Happy with your service on this (and all previous bookings) thanks.

Will be in touch again in the Spring for another booking.

Thanks Matt

Thanks Hector 'cause he's always nice and friendly. Regards from freezing cold Germany, hope your sun in Hawaii will rise here.  More power to you and have a Happy Holidays. Always,

Everything with the booking went just fine.  The hotel employees gave me the same service they would give anyone else.  I definitely will use your services again and will recommend you to others.

I have used your service for many years and you know me by Uncle Bud, I've sent many customers to you and I continue to support your business every chance I get. I have a website that helps the

Keep up the good work and I'll be contacting you during the last week of January 2011, as many of us Old Space-A travelers will be getting together again in Waikiki for a reunion.
I'll be sending many of the people who come to the reunion to you for Hotel rooms. Mahalo and Aloha

Your service was excellent and the hotel was good and very good value for money. I will definitely
use your service next time I am in Hawaii.

Best regards,


It's always a pleasure knowing I can call Discount Hotels Hawaii and get the best rate possible. For our most recent trip, I compared the prices with the major search engines, even Orbitz couldn't beat the prices. Even though the hotel we stayed at had a discounted 3rd night, the total bill still would not have beat the price for the same room with Discount Hotels Hawaii. We stayed at the Parkshore Waikiki and loved the location and the great service so much that we wanted to extend our stay one more night. After checking with the staff for the best price, they couldn't beat Discount Hotels Hawaii and held our room for us while I called and made arrangements with you guys. Even last minute we got the same great rate for the extra night. Thanks for giving me all the info that I needed to compare the different hotels and locations available, it really helped with the decision making. The staff at Discount Hotels Hawaii always gives me the info pertinent to my budget and interests, then lets me call back after looking things over on the computer. Never have I felt any sales pressure from their crew, this is how everyone should do business! I recommend you to everyone I talk to that is considering Oahu, in fact, just this morning I recommended you again to someone at the doctor's office that visits Hawaii yearly. Hope to talk to you soon, we love going to the islands. Thanks again,

I used your service to book my hotel for my recent vacation in Waikiki (October 2010) and was very happy with the service. Hector listened to what I was looking for and guided me to the perfect hotel. Mahalo Hector!

Dear Sir or Madam
Just wish to drop a note to let you know how pleased we were with our accommodations that we arranged with you. We stayed at the Waikiki Resort Hotel and were very well pleased with everything including the price. It was certainly very enjoyable and very convenient and will not hesitate to book with you again. Thanks Again Yours truly

I just wanted to write to tell you that I booked a hotel through your company recently and I was extremely pleased with the results. I booked a room at the Waikiki Resort from Dec. 16 - 24. The hotel exceeded my expectations. It was conveniently located and was very nice. I found it to be very clean and the staff were extremely accommodating. I found your company on the internet and was somewhat skeptical about using your services, but decided that I would give you a try. I liked your guarantee that if I wasn't satisfied I could call you and you would find something else. I am very impressed with your services and I have been telling my friends and family about you ever since I returned. Thank you so much for making my trip a memorable one and the next time I visit I will definitely use your services. I will also be quick to recommend you to anyone I know.

Best regards -

I just wanted to say thank you for your assistance in getting me a hotel room with my requirements. I just needed a room for the Honolulu Marathon and I wanted something close the Kapiolani Park that had clean rooms and a bathtub. You recommended the Waikiki Resort because it had been renovated only a year ago, and it served my purpose well. The room rate was great, too! Thank you for your expert assistance and for taking the stress out of finding a place to stay in Waikiki for the weekend. It made my marathon experience enjoyable and convenient.

Hi Danell, I just wanted to thank you so very much for all your help. The Beachcomber was fabulous - great location and good $$$ value - I will definitely deal with you again and will definitely refer others.

There is a gym on the 2nd floor of the hotel - so all my needs were met. Thanks again.


Jo-Lynn G.


Thank you very much for recommending the Waikiki Resort Hotel.
We stayed Jan 20-29.
It was fabulous - close to the beach (1/2block) friendly staff, comfortable bed (we even got the king size we had requested) very clean, new carpets, never used the pool as we are beach people & it was so close.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
I had told you we stayed at high end - Marriot, and low end -Ohanna West, and I wanted something in between. Well the Waikiki Resort Hotel was closer to a high end place & it was cheaper than we had paid at the Ohhana West last year.
I will call you when we need to book again - hope it won't be long!
Darlene W.

Great website!
The parking info was very much appreciated. Dumb me! I could have saved $20 below even Priceline on your Garden Waikiki special.
I will post your site on our corp bulletin board.

Hi there
We recently booked a hotel with Hector (Late January) and he kindly booked us into the Aqua Ocean Towers Waikiki
 We had a lovely stay there, and just wanted to pass on our thanks for your help

Thank you Hector, You made it pretty simple. Thanks again, Lillian

We just returned from our trip to Oahu and want to commend you for your help in booking our room @ Aloha Surf Hotel. 
We were Very pleased with the hotel.  I was very concerned after reading some of the comments from people who had nightmarish stays at some of these places.  You were Right…..everything was nice, clean and we always felt safe being out on the street at night.  We saved the money and worry of having a rental car and used that money take tours (let someone else worry about the driving!)  It worked for us!
 We had a great trip….and thanks to your help we got the perfect place to stay for us at a very good price!  Thanks a lot!
Aloha,  the Ishmaels from Kentucky

Just wanted to let you know that I was pleasantly surprised with this recent stay. Sure, the hotel is older and the facility is limited (no pool or balconies, for instance); however, they more than make up for it with the friendly, attentive, professional staff. The room was clean, although the interior is a bit dated. The complimentary in-room wireless Internet service certainly was appreciated and well-used, and I was glad to have an iron and ironing-board in the room. The complimentary continental breakfast and daily morning newspaper also was appreciated. The Ocean Tower is a great value and a hotel I certainly would recommend to future Waikiki visitors.

We will be glad to recommend you to anyone going to Hawaii. Not only were you helpful but you saved us considerable money. Mahola and hang loose!Jack and Patsy, Montgomery, Texas.
To your wonderful staff - I called the day before arriving in Honolulu and you found me a wonderful room at the Ohana Islander Waikiki - It was right on Lewers in a perfect location - I had a nice city view room which gave me a view of Diamond Head and the ocean for a great price - I couldn't believe it - I would use your service again for sure.Again thank you for the aloha you showed meBridgett
Thanks for the great support and help in choosing our hotel. We were very pleased with the Island Colony and had a great time. The staff provided us with a superior 1 bdrm apt. which was great.
Mahalo we will certainly come back to you next time we go to HonoluluBrigit Schwickart
Thank you so much for your help. We had a wonderful time at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani. When we arrived they upgraded us to a very nice ocean view with a King bed on the 9th floor. We could see and hear the nightly entertainment from our Lanai. We could also see many wedding photo sessions going on at the beautiful Sheraton Moana Surfrider hotel right in front of us. Because you let them know that was our anniversary, the Hotel Manager had a cold bottom of champagne waiting for us in our room!
The location was central to everything and we liked how the pool area, though just off the busy street, felt closed off and protected from the masses walking by.
We would recommend the hotel to anyone as well as your services.
I just wanted to take the time to write and say thank you so much for all your help in booking a Hotel for me from 2nd May to 12th May.
I booked within 10 days of arrival and was worried I would not find a decent hotel but your website was so easy to use and all your staff so helpful and friendly. You found something for me at $60 a night, I asked the staff when I arrived if I could have a room with a Lanai and they upgraded me from the 2nd to 17th Floor which had fantastic views of the mountains, ocean and pool!!!!!
Thank you so much, I had a fantastic holiday and certainly wouldn't hesitate in contacting you again next time I visit Waikiki.

You are right. I agree that many satisfied clients do not take the time to write a review and will take your good comments into consideration next time around.
You have made a very favorable impression on this traveler and I will be in contact in the future. In the meantime, I will be recommending your business to all those I know who will be making plans to Hawaii.

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had in Waikiki, this of course was after I talked to you. You probably don't remember me but we were there in September, we stayed at a hotel that we did not like, it was awful, it smelled. I remember that I had one of your brochures and called. You and I talked about what we needed. You found the Prince Kuhio for us. We couldn't believe our eyes. The people (staff) were just wonderful. Thanks to you the rest of our stay was wonderful. I meant to write to you sooner but I misplaced the brochure.
Thank you so much or should I say MAHALO.

Dear Grace
Thank you very much for the assistance and advice during my vacation with my wife in Hawaii.
It was the first time for both of us to visit Honolulu. Frankly speaking, it was one of the best places and we did enjoy our trip for those two weeks in Hawaii.
With your help and information, we were able to optimize our budget and stay at the best possible hotels within our budget.
This will definitely be the place where we must visit again in the future, my wife and I would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for your prompt responses as well as your quality services. Next time when we plan to visit Hawaii, we will certainly contact you first.
Thanks again for your help and have a good day. Aloha!
