Okay, quick shout out blog post to the cutest, best hotel choice I could have made for my trip!
I stayed at Queen Kapiolani Hotel in Waikiki. It had recently re-opened after renovation and it is conveniently located, modern, and still authentically Hawaiian.
Not only does it have the BEST views of diamond head, it is just a block away from Waikiki beach. It’s location at the end of Waikiki makes it’s a great blend of the hustle and bustle, but also a great retreat to come back to or easily take out your rental car and explore the island without being in the dead center of Waikiki traffic.
The vintage yet modern theming of this hotel was just perfect. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Waikiki. Check out their site here: https://www.queenkapiolani.com/
