Hotel Review: Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort


Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort
2005 Kalia Rd, Honolulu, HI 96815

Hilton Hawaiian Village is a Category 7 Hilton property located right on Waikiki beach. The hotel is located about 8 miles from Honolulu International Airport. One night stay at this resort costs about 60,000 HHonors points.

We arrived at the hotel on a Saturday (Memorial Day Weekend) and it was crazy busy. Check-in took about 30 minutes and we were upgraded to Rainbow Tower, corner room. There was no complimentary breakfast for Gold status members although we did get a dining credit of $10 USD per person (for double occupancy).

The room was very spacious and bed quite comfortable.

We had a great view of the lagoon by the hotel.

For our first day dinner at the hotel, we tried some Nachos and hot-dogs paid for partially by our daily dining credit.

For our dinner on second night we ate at the property and ordered some buffalo wings and pizza. Both were quite delicious.

We spent quite a bit of time by the pools on property as well as the beach.


Thumbs up:

  • Location !! Right on Waikiki Beach
  • Very responsive front desk who upgraded us to a fantastic room with great views

Thumbs down:

  • Resort located over vast area and everything seems too long to walk to.
  • Everything felt overpriced on the property (sure its Hawaii but still)
  • $10 USD dining credit per person per day does not cover much at the property
