If you're staying in Honolulu, there's no better place than on the Waikiki Beach strip.
With beach access, top restaurants, and luxury shopping all within walking distance, this area is also very expensive and high-end.
You'll have envious ocean views, but the no-frill rooms might be outdated, and all-important Wi-Fi is only available in the lobby.
The hotel is farther from the beach, but it offers guests free shuttle service to the Ala Moana shopping center.
Conveniently situated near restaurants and shopping, you'll have quick access to all Waikiki's main attractions.
This stylish establishment is the farthest west of the hotels mentioned, but it has a bus stop across the street, and the Ala Moana Center is only a 15-minute walk away.
The Aston at the Waikiki Banyan features a suite-style layout, and rooms have access to full kitchens that guests can use to save money on meals.
