Barcelona, Spain9 contributions4 helpful votes
Not the biggest hotel but great if you just want a place to sleep! It’s half a block away from the beach, with plenty of options for food and shopping. Staff is amazing: super kind and friendly! The hotel provides beach towels, floaties, snorkel gear and beach chairs for free, which is great! No pool or really any amenities at the actual hotel and no breakfast either. They have a small bar but nothing is included. Only option for parking is Valet, which is a little pricey in my opinion, specially if you are not using the car a ton ($49/night), plus they charge it at the beginning of the stay, so you can’t have a change of plans. BUT street parking is not easy, so you will most definitely want to either only rent a car the day you truly need it or just pay for valet.

Hotel's Favorite
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left everyone was extremely nice and helpful. We received an upgrade room with a view of the beach. it was an awesome view! There is no restaurant in the hotel, but there are many places within walking distance to choose from. It is an older hotel, but very clean. And the price per night is great compared to other nearby hotels. I highly recommend.

Getting a beach towels and snorkeling sets were great for us. Besides, hotel is very clean. Comfortable beds and pillows. Large room. Perfect location. Next to the beach and the Waikiki walking promenade.

Hotel Renew is located on a calmer part of Waikiki. It has a kid friendly beach right across the street. The staff is super friendly, and the beach items were always available. We were in 2 adults and 2 little kids and the king bed was good enough for all of us.

We are beyond grateful that Hotel Renew was part of our first experience in Hawaii. This beautiful boutique hotel checked off everything we were looking for and more, starting with the friendly staff and complimentary lavender aroma baggies. We also received a coupon book with a plethora of restaurants and activities on Oahu and great suggestions! Our room looked exactly like the photos and even included complimentary coffee + machine! There was 24/7 desk service which set us at ease in case we needed anything, especially later in the night and they also had towels, beach chairs/mats, floaties, and snorkel gear we could borrow. They seem to have covered all the little things that made the stay convenient.

We enjoyed this small hotel, located close the beach which has a protected swimming area. The room was comfortable and clean, although the carpet could use a deep clean. Our room on the 4th floor faced the alley and it was quiet. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and pleasant. The only issue was housekeeping - we didn't receive it the 2nd day (after declining the 1st) - told that due to lower staffing, we would have had to request it, which was not communicated. Otherwise a good experience and preferable to a big hotel.

We had some complaints regarding the cleanliness of our room and the noise. We got moved to a different room (ocean) and ended up getting charged more for it but that seems unreasonable due to our bad experience the first night. We didn’t care about having an ocean view we just wanted a clean room with less noise. I felt the front desk didn’t deal with our complaint in a reasonable way when we voiced our concern about this charge. It was so bad we wanted to change hotels after the first night so switching rooms was our only option. Other than that customer service was always great and it was nice having the towels and water to use.

I loved how close this hotel was to everything but I haven’t slept a full night while there the whole week (you can hear everything through the walls). The staff was great and helpful and I loved that they have beach chairs you can take any time.
