Upon arrival we proceeded to check-in. We waited 15 minutes in order for them to find a room. We made a reservation for a king size bed/ resort room which they say they don't guarantee but don't advertise that either. We were placed in a room with 2 double beds although the customers next to us were receiving a king bed room. We proceeded to the room and when we went to leave, it took 13 minutes for an elevator to reach our floor. We were on the 3rd floor. There was no stairwell that allowed us access to the main lobby. That night when we returned to our room we had the pleasure of being attached to a room (the rooms were attached by a common door) with a screaming child. After many hours of patience, we called the front desk. They told us there was nothing that they could do. At 2 am, we called again and they sent security up to the room. The crying ended about 3 am. Once again when we tried to check out the elevator took 15 minutes to get to our floor. It was not worth the couple of hundred dollars a night for the stay!

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and for me that was long enough. The rooms themselves were great. We stayed in the Tapa Tower and had masses of space, a large closet and 'kitchen' area and a reasonably small bathroom and balcony just enough for two.

Dont Come Here!
I've been to Hawaii a total of 10 times over the past 20 years, and this place is by far the worst place I've ever been to--anywhere.
This place is awful. First, it is 5 huge towers. Only one is on the beach. They claim to have "ocean views", but you really have views of other towers. If you stick your neck out far enough from the balcony, you get a glimmer of the ocean. The four towers completely shadow the pool
The service is arrogant. The hostess in the restaurants couldn't care less if you are there. The beach attendants are worse. I asked for a beach towel and the attendent wouldn't give it to me, claiming they weren't open yet (even though the towels were there, attendants were there, and it was nearly 9 AM, when they are supposed to open at 8:30; the attendant told me they were on "Hilton time", which meant that they would open when they felt like it).

I went to the men?s room one afternoon and the Janitor was in there cleaning. After washing my hands, I noticed that there weren't any hand towels. I asked him for some, and he told me "they were out". This is a 2000 room hotel and they are out of hand towels?

I called up house keeping to send me some pillows, and it took 3 hours. They arrived at midnight, after I was asleep for an hour.

I put a "do not disturb" sign on my door, and so, they called my telephone to ask if they can come in (after all---they wouldn't want to "knock" on my door, since I had the sign up! Instead, they figured that they could telephone me and that somehow wouldn't "disturb" me!)

I get the impression that the employees truly don't care about working there. They have no pride in their work whatsoever.
The location doesn't help. The hotel is near downtown Waikiki and the traffic in and around the place is awful. It takes 30 minutes to get away from the hotel to drive anywhere.

Unless you have a strong desire to spend a lot of money and get frustrated, I'd recommend staying away from this place.

First off..I didn't pay for this trip! But if I had the money I'd go back time and again. The rooms had wonderful balconies overlooking the water, the ambiance and attention to detail was amazing. I wish I were rich...

Ali'i Tower had wonderful amenities - doorman, spacious room, daily newspaper, private swimming pool & terrace for Ali'i Tower guests, and free appetizers during happy hour. Nice central location in Waikiki. Plenty of beach space.

Hilton Hawaiian Village grounds offered plenty of restaurants & shops within as well.

America Express Excursions Desk - very helpful.

Take a 15min walk or hop on the Pink Line Trolley to go to the Ala Moana Shopping Center - reasonably-priced & tasty dishes at the Food Court!

We stayed in a 1 bedroom ocean front suite and couldnt have been more pleased with the room. The staff were helpful and always willing to do anything and everything to make things more pleasant and easier on us. The shops, though some were expensive, had alot of interesting items and had about everything you would need. We didnt eat here much ,so cant really say alot about the dining prices, but Round Table Pizza was the best pizza ever, and the ice cream shop was Heaven!! There is so much to see and do on the property that we could have spent the whole 2 weeks just looking around at the hotel! If you're up early enough the beach is almost completely empty and the temp. is low. We spent our mornings and evenings alone walking on the beach. We couldn't have chosen a more wonderful place to stay.

Pros: get what you pay for, beautiful views, friendly staff

Very disappointing experience. We were so excited to finally stay at a Hilton hotel and we had saved for almost 2 years for this trip. The property is beautiful, well maintained and practically a shopping destination itself. However, every single amenity was at an added cost. These were outrageously expensive! From dinner in the restaurants to water in the room. The concierge and bellmen were helpful and friendly. The rest of the staff was not (we seemed to be in their way as if they had something better to do). The friendly inviting people of Hawaii made us feel welcome once we left the Hilton Village. It is a shame the Hilton doesn't incorporate a bit of this Aloha feeling.

While there are a lot of better places to be in Hawaii than Honolulu, if you're going to be in Honolulu, then the Hilton Hawaiian Village is a great choice. As long as you're on the grounds, you feel like you're in a resort paradise. Yes -- pretty crowded with buildings; NOT a natural resort. But if you want good food, lots of pools, the beach, shopping, massage, and nice rooms, this is a great pick. The kids will have a great time too. And the submarine ride just off the beach is fun. Nothing much to see while Snorkeling on Waikiki (a "dead reef") -- you'll have to drive 45 minutes to Hanauma(?) Bay for that.

Pros: Lots of pools, service, decor/atmosphere

Cons: concrete jungle

This non-smoking hotel is one of the largest oceanfront resorts in the world. With several hundred rooms set on a wonderful white sand beach, the property offers a large expanse of amenities. The large compound consists of several pools,…
