Honolulu has a variety of choices when it comes to beautiful hotels. Whether you’re looking for more of a resort feel, historic or new and modern you will find it all in Honolulu. When planning your next trip to Hawaii keep these hotels in mind for a great holiday experience. Here is a list of the best hotels in Honolulu.



One of the newest hotels in Waikiki, Alohilani Resort is all about new and modern. Alohilani features a beautiful infinity pool and perfect ocean front views. It’s located right next to the beach and in the centre of Waikiki so everything is within close walking distance. An incredible feature of this hotel is every night after sunset (weather permitting) there is a light show projected against the side of the building in front of the pool.  When booking this hotel opt for the Ocean Front Room to get the best view of Waikiki Beach. Also I highly suggest adding on the club lounge to which includes a light breakfast and drinks and snacks in the evenings.

The Surfjack Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel located just off the beach in Waikiki. Surfjack is best known for its iconic pool with the quote “Wish You Were Here”. Since this hotel is not directly in front of the beach the room prices are relatively lower than some of the other popular hotels.



Possibly the best place to view the sunrise in Waikiki is from the infinity pool at the Sheraton Waikiki. The Sheraton Waikiki is a modern hotel with a beachfront location. This hotel is ideal for couples as well as families. There are 2 pools at the Sheraton Waikiki, the beautiful adults only infinity pool ideal for sunrise & sunset, and a large family friendly pool.
