Modern, Hip, Exactly What a Boutique Hotel Is!”

Clean, Modern, Quick

This is the best hotel I have stayed at in Waikiki by far. I come at least once per year and have tried half a dozen hotels- I try to stay away from the monster hotels with crying babies and toddlers running all over the place. Also, to stay away from huge hotels that are advertised as boutiques but the checkin/checkout is a nightmare queue and the elevators take forever because it stops on every floor. Here, the valet parking always took barely one minute to get the car and very efficient. The elevators were quick. The continental breakfast was fine- mix of fruits, coffee, tea, juice, and pastries... if you want to get stuffed fat on eggs and sausages you can just go to any restaurant around the corner for $5. Internet was a bit slow, but besides that will definitely return here again as opposed to The Modern or any other "boutique" Waikiki hotels which were instead a zoo.

Lovely boutique hotel, great location!”

Service upon arrival at the hotel, helpful friendly staff, so close to transportation and the beach.

my sister and i recently stayed at this hotel and we were very impressed with the whole experience. upon arrival at the hotel they took our suitcases and brought them to the room for us. we also received a nice cold beverage and a cool cloth which was wonderful after our flight. the staff were incredibly helpful when we wanted to book the shuttle bus to attractions and shopping centers. the hotel is located just across the road from the beach and just around the corner from the main shopping strip in waikiki. we had breakfast included in the price of the hotel and it was a decent breakfast, with fruit, youghurt, pastries, tea, coffee, etc. the trolley stop was right outside and was so convieniant. we would definitely stay here again.

Contemporary, clean, easy”

Contemporary room decor and ambience

In an overdeveloped expanse of accommodation in Waikiki Hotel Renew stands out as it is fairly small and "boutique". I stayed at Hotel Renew twice during my stay in Hawaii. The first room was a Beach View room which was lovely and quiet. The second was a city view room (room 601) which was noisy; I was woken up various times during the night by garbage trucks etc so don't chose this room if you are a light sleeper. Having said that I did not have the air conditioning on which probably would have drowned out the noise anyway as it's so loud! The reception area did not "wow" me but the rooms where modern with a good ambience and everything you need. I liked that they provided free loan of beach gear and that there were some great books to read in the room. It does not have a restaurant or room service but there are so many restaurants around that you don't really need it anyway and they provide 24 hour coffee and pastries in the morning. My stay was easy and comfortable and I'd recommend it as a place to navigate to and from Honolulu airport.

Peace and quiet, away from the hustle of Waikiki”

Small, quiet and a place to rest. Stellar service.

We chose Hotel Renew because of its size and we were happy. A touch of P&Q in the midst of Waikiki madness, classy and tasteful. Gorgeous rooms and amazing staff. Nice breakfast, although the restaurant / bar area is pretty small and can cause a rush during breakfast hours. The only negative was the air conditioning unit, which was quiet noisy if you tried to go below a certain temperature.

reasonably modern boutique hotel”

close to the beach,

Hotel Renew is a nice little boutique hotel situated at the western end of the Waikiki beach strip, but still ideally situated for beach, shopping and dining action. It has modern amenities which is a refreshing break from other hotels that still seem to retain tacky '80 decor (which i think is rife throughout Hawaii). Acceptable breakfast of pastries and fruits and very friendly, accommodating staff. Not a very atmospheric bar though for happy our drinks. Some nuisances that I found - wireless internet was patchy at times and air con was terribly loud. Otherwise, a nice stay that I would still recommend.

Quality with the Aloha spirit”

We wanted a smaller hotel in Waikiki with the quality of a larger hotel and Hotel renew came up trumps. Staff were really friendly and helpful, hotel was modern, chic and clean, room sizes great and only minutes from the beach.

definitely go back here! great hotel only minutes from waikiki beach. less bustle than the larger hotels and limited amenities but we were looking for something special and we definitely found it here. staff were really friendly and helpful, always smiling and rooms were modern, a good size and very clean. we stayed here for four nights following a cruise and could not have asked for more. although there is no pool and rooms have no balconies,you do not need them, walk to the beach! breakfast room was small with limited food choices but small negative in an exceedingly positive experience.

Good location and extra friendly and helpful staff”

Location jsut a few doors back from the beach, close to transport. Good sized room.

Enjoyed our stay - staff were very helpful as well as friendly. Room was reasonably sized, bed very comfortable and well equipped. No coffee making in room but hot water available downstairs, complementary continental breakfast provided. Location was excellent for us - towards the Diamond Head end of Waikiki so the beach which is just a few doors away is not quite so crowded. Very short walk to bus stop as well and trolley outside to Ala Moana. View from our room was ordinary - but then we weren't paying the rates that are charged for views of the beach! Air conditioner was effective but somewhat noisy. Would happily stay there again.

location was good!

was close to the Zoo, which is convenient if you're looking for a free parking spot instead of using hotel valet parking that is a bit pricier than free parking of course :) the hotel staffs were very friendly, you can rent beach necessities for free from hotel such as towels, beach mats and etc. exterior is very old, yet interior space had been "renewed" they response quick to complaint,complimentary breakfast, but if you need a swimming pool, it does not have one. over all was very good!

convenient location, walkable distance to shops n good restaurants.”

Friendly and very helpful staff. Beach mats, towels and chairs are conveniently loaned out to us for out trips to the beach. Comes with continental breakfast that is more than adequate for a grab and go. Suitable for our needs as it is conveniently located at Waikiki and we were out most of the day and did not require a pool, gym etc and just needed a decent and clean place to crash. Near shops and restaurants.

Oceanview is a MUST!”

Helpful and friendly staff, modern rooms.

We stayed at Hotel Renew for 5 nights in October. The hotel staff are always friendly and really helpful, they gave us some great reommendations for places to eat dinner. Our room was modern looking with a great view of the Ocean - I would def recommend paying extra for a Oceanview room. The room was smallish but all we needed. We were in room 906, I would also recommend asking for a room on a higher floor, we also had a balcony - the end rooms of the floor have balconys. Free Wi-Fi too! The hotel provide beach towels, chairs and mats which was great. Breakfast is included in the price which is supposed to be 'Continental' however it's just coffee, orange juice and muffins. I was expecting cereal/toast and fruit as well, this was our biggest downfall with our stay as we needed to find and spend money eating breakfast elsewhere. They have happy hour between 5.30 and 7.30pm which was good - $6 cocktail! Lastly the location of the hotel is a 5/10 minute walk from the heart of the main strip - I guess this was a good thing as we got some exercise. In summary I enjoyed our stay (minus breakfast) and think the hotel does offer value for money and would recommend others to stay here.

Great location but smallish rooms”

Block away from beach, clean and modern look, friendly staff

The Hotel Renew is very close to the beach and provides a good spot close enough to the action but not overwhelming with tourists in the larger hotels. Staff is friendly, the hotel is new and has a fresh, modern vibe, and breakfast - although limited to mostly cereal, muffins, and fruit, is free. Free beach towel service also. Rooms are small, however, and due to the hotel's proximity to the strip, can often be loud, especially the rooms located right next to the elevator.

Quick Service and a True Boutique Hotel”

Fast, Clean, Boutique

Fantastic! Quick and efficient staff. Valet parking took less than 1 min to get the car everytime, checkin & checkout was a breeze. Only has 8 or 9 floors with 9 rooms each floor... so really intimate atmosphere and not a crazy monster resort hotel. Free wifi, fresh bowl of fruits for breakfast was great. Only bad thing was the card for the rooms were tricky to work; most times had to insert it 3 to 9 times to get the door to open. The ocean view on the 5th floor was not that great, and I imagine on the 9th (the top) floor isn't much of an improvement. Go for the quick service, and easy beach access!

Brakfast was also disappointing as was only muffins, juice and coffee/tea - not what we would normally expect for a "breakfast"(did not even meet a continental style breakfast!) But position was great with lots of good restuarants and close to beach. Front desk staff at Hotel Renew were absolutely fantastic!
