We'd stay here anytime!”

Location, staff friendliness and helpfulness, price

We really enjoyed our stay at the Imperial Hawaii Resort at Waikiki. From check-in to check-out, it was a good experience, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the price was reasonable (we booked a month and a half in advance on Agoda). The location is great - Lewers St is a nice and cool street! It's walking distance to Waikiki beach and to restaurants and bars, and we walked everywhere, except to the Ala Moana Center; for that we took the bus or taxi. Technically the Imperial Hawaii Resort at Waikiki is not a hotel (it is a timeshare), and it was explained to us at check-in time that there would not be chambermaid service, and that if we wanted fresh towels daily, we could exchange the used towels for fresh towels on the 3rd floor (housekeeping). Towels for use at the pool or beach were also provided. The room itself was big enough and comfortable, and it had a nice lanai, although there was no view (the only view was of buildings). The only thing that we weren't thrilled about was the size of the bathroom - it was a little tight in there - but again, it was clean enough and the bathtub had grab rails, which was good. So all in all, it was a very pleasant 4-night stay, and we'd have no qualms booking ourselves there on our next visit to Honolulu!

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC ”

Location, price ambiance

Hi all, my family and I (hubby, 2 girls 13&15) have just returned from hawaii staying at the imperial.This place was fantastic, don't get me wrong, yes it is dated but it is clean,no smells as read in previous reviews, yes you do pull the double ensemble bed from the wall-not a major concern.Housekeeping are awesome.People expect too much.The purpose of a holiday is to have somewhere clean and tidy to come back to and shower.You are not spending a great deal in hotel rooms anyway.If you are a family like us you are saving money to spend on other activities to get out and enjoy this beautiful place. With full kitchenette and an ABC store right below you can save heaps by having breakfast, making lunch and if you want to cook something as everything is provided. As for noise yes the garbos are noisy, we don't want a smelly waikiki, take earplugs. AC is also great.Towels are changed daily if you want or the lovely housekeeping ladies would come in and check first.We had read reviews in regard to smell and outdated ness which is far from correct. Bear in mind people that if they start renovating the prices will go through the roof.The location of the imperial is fantastic we were on the 22nd floor with beach views, had two balconies also and two bathrooms. With two teenage girls it was a godsend.It was 250 paces to the beach. we HIGHLY recommend this for others as we will be back. Mahalo

Awesome Location”

Location, Shopping and Clean room

My hubby & I stayed for a week. We love the Imperial Hawaii Resort for its awesome location and clean room. The beautiful Waikiki beach is just 5 minutes walk away. Lewers Street was a great spot for all shoppers! You can hear the music and announcement from the bustling beach activities which gives you the holiday mood. ABC Store is right on level 1 of the hotel where you can get your meals and souvenirs. The friendly and helpful staff made our trip even better. Imperial Hawaii Resort, we will be back again!

This is my 3rd stay at the Imperial Hawaii Resort, and has become my favorite place to stay in Oahu. Tha staff is extremely helpful, I was there on a family emergency and the staff could not have been nicer, or more compassionate. The location is perfect for beach and shopping, and the valet parking makes getting in and out of Waikiki so easy. I would highly recommend the Imperial and will be a returning cutomer.

Just Perfect”

So Hawaii was the destination to take a couple of Year 12 Aussie Schoolies rather than the trashy Bali and Gold Coast . The Imperial was just fantastic. I had done alot of research and decided it was a great deal !.We arrived super early on a Sunday at 0700hrs and they managed to get us into our 2 rooms just like that with no waiting which was rather fortunate. Staff were all very friendly and the hotel was clean . Our room had a full size fridge and an amazing view from the 18th floor where the girls room on the 10th floor had an ordinary view and a smaller fridge but a much bigger room and a better bed configuration( 2 x queen beds) .We booked 2 x Palm Suites. We were able to get clean beach towels daily if we wanted and the pool and gym area perfect for our needs.There was construction going on at a refurbished hotel next door at 0800hrs but we were well and truly up and about by then. I would definitely come back to The Imperial again and this is our 4th visit to Hawaii .

Pleasantly satisfied... LOCATION, Location, location...”

Choosing accommodation is never easy & I have to say my 11 nights at Imperial Hawaii Resort was a big part in my Hawaiian holiday being as nice as it was. Everyone has what they're looking for & for me it was location. Lewers street where you enter the hotel is VERY beautiful at night & great restaurants to feast at. The accommodation in the room was adequate, with a little wear & tear. Riding the elevators I could see one floor was having a refurbishment, while finished floors looked very nice! I'm sure you can pay more & get a better "beach view", but I was happy with what I spent & would come back again.

Great Stay”

location - cleanliness - friendly staff

Stayed at the Imperial for 11 days - location is great - I picked it because it was close enough to walk to the Honolulu Marathon start and it is also close to waikiki beach and the main shopping strip - ABC store on ground level is good for food shopping - room was large enough with a kitchenette and very clean - we had a high floor (22) so road noise wasn't an issue - there is a gym and hot-tub if required - pool on the top floor is smallish but adequate - staff were very friendly and checkin and checkout was very smooth - we would definitely stay here again

It was a really comfortable stay”

Clean and close to the beach and shopping areas

We were a group of 3 (originally 4) and needed a clean and spacious suite during our visit. The suite at the Imperial Hawaii Resort at Waikiki was wonderful as there was ample space and beds/couches for all of us to move about and sleep in. The kitchen was just wonderful as that meant we were able to save on money by cooking our own food. We had a little trouble when we first arrived at the suite was booked by our parents via credit card while we were still overseas. The staff at the hotel somehow had a hard time with that and we had to go through a bit of paper work and was delayed in getting to our suite. It all worked out in the end but it was still somewhat annoying. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay and value for our money.

Great resort for the price. May seem “outdated” to some but fully functional for us. Pros: -friendly staff who are willing to help w whatever issue arises -even the smallest rooms come equipped w an actual oven, fridge, microwave (no cooktop) -ice cold air conditioning -newer television -located 2 blocks from the beach, near pricier resorts -ABC Store (look it up ABC and Hawaii) and Denny’s located under hotel Cons: -bathtub size made for dwarves which fortunately we are small people -construction noise from about 8 am until 4 pm (building new resort across the way) -valet parking $35 a day, plus tipping on receipt of car and deposit of car adds up however grateful for parking

The Imperial Hawaii is a timeshare resort offering studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The rooms are a bit dated but the hotel is in the process of renovating. The rooftop pool is small but suitable as the beach is only a 5 min walk. Rooms have small kitchens and timeshare owners have access to a full kitchen on 26th floor with amazing views. A visit to the rooftop bar is a must at sunset!

location comfort great value

fantastic! the imperial is not an expensive hotel but it has many of the options of an expensive motel. the room was a good size-the bed was a pull down from the wall, it was very comfortable and the room was large enough for the 2 of us to leave the bed down during the day. The room was big enough to accommodate a lounge with 2 single chairs plus a dining room table and chairs. The verandah was big enough for two of us to sit on but we were close. We could see the ocean through the gap in the buildings. It took us less than 5 mins to walk to the beach from our room. The bathroom was a reasonable size. The kitchenette had crockery & cutlery for 4 people, it had a microwave, bar fridge, coffer filter machine. We didn't really spend a lot of time in the room as it was so easy to walk to the beaches, restaurants and shops. an ABC shop was located underneath so we were able to buy ready made salads and meals, fresh fruit or fruit prepared in containers, snacks, alcohol and snacks along with holiday gifts for the family. The pink trolley to Ala Moana made it easy to walk around the corner & for $2 be at Ala Moana Shopping centre within 10 mins. We loved our time at the Imperial and hopefully we'll be back soon.

This hotel is in a great location for access to just about anything in the Waikiki Beach area. Close to beach, shopping and restaurants. Rooms are a little dated and smallish, but clean, and having a kitchen will help save you money on expensive Waikiki Restaurants and bars. Resort fees reasonable, nothing like the resort fee cost of the other guys... and you can just walk over to their beaches!

Location is superb. Staff wonderful. ABC store on the 1st floor and of course the rest of wonderful Waikiki at your footstep. Parking is valet which is standard in central Waikiki, with so many one way roads got lost a few times. I would rate it a 4 star hotel. Rooms are all owned by owners so but all seem to be well kept. Staff were helpful with requests. For the price I would stay here again. Pool is not bad but not great but the beach is a few minutes away so all good.

This hotel was extremely well placed in Waikiki. Everything was within walking distance, or a 5 minute taxi to Ala Moana Mall. The rooms could be updated slightly but honestly, wasn't a big deal. Everything was in full working order, clean and tidy. The murphy bed was awesome (our friend had some doubts about this initially), extremely comfy. It is in a slightly awkward position but easy to pack away during the day if need be. Overall, I would 100% stay here again.
