    well equipped
    I was pleasantly surprised by this small but well equipped hotel. Our room was big enough for 4 of us - 2 large double/Queen beds, comfortable and had small kitchenette - with microwave, hob, cutlery, dinner set and even pans!! On first evening we had a problem with water leaking from ceiling but it was fixed quickly & efficiently. The hotel has a pleasant pool & pool area with a few sun loungers (6), beach towels sometimes available (sometimes were in the wash!)

    Central location
    The hotel doesn't have many facilities - a small pool and washing machines/dryers are available on two floors. We didn't use the pool (as we wanted to go to the beach), but the washing machines/dryers came in handy as we stayed for a week. What the hotel lacks in facilities, it makes up for in location. You are on Kalakaua Ave, so you can literally shop until you drop, eat until your belly bursts and lounge at the beach (the main beach is about a 15-20 minute walk (at a leisurely pace)). The hotel rooms are moderns and clean. Who knew a heated toilet seat was a thing? Really nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. We would stay here again.

    Good sized rooms in a central location
    I booked two rooms for myself and my family for a week in Hawaii. I booked two rooms, each with two double beds. The location is nice and central in Waikiki. You're around the corner from the water and right in the middle of all the shopping in Waikiki. The rooms are big and roomy. You get a little noise from the street, but more from the rooms next to you. It's fine though as you only head there to sleep. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is modern and clean. The rooms have a fridge, so you can put your water in there. There isn't anything else by way of amenities, but that's fine as there's a great ramen place downstairs and for those who want burgers and drinks, the Hard Rock is around the corner. There is a small pool at the hotel, but head out to the beaches. In fact, head out of Waikiki for stunning landscapes and beautiful beaches! We would stay at the hotel again.

    Denver to Hawaii happy visitor
    I am overall grateful. It was my first time in Hawaii, booked on didn’t know what to expect but was doing a solo travel an trying to expense where needed. I was stuck with a delay over two hours coming from Denver , Colorado already checking in at a later time I was worried I would be without a room. Was in communication with the hotel throughout my trip, luckily when I landed an got there close to 11 pm. The staff was amazing an was so helpful, held my room an was so great with local information and helping with where to eat, where to visit , what to do. The room was beautiful , clean an nice. Perfect for little ol me. The pool was just out my balcony with a nice view of palm trees. I was on the second floor 216 great to request for a king bed. Beautiful shower an fridge an microwave. Got the plus of free WiFi an wasn’t in the room long enough to enjoy the tv. I really over all was very pleased! I would LOVE to go back an visit , definitely will be coming back to Polynesian residence. Thank you!

    Denver to Hawaii
    This hotel is so cute an clean. I got a excellent deal. I was stuck on a delay pushed back two hours an the staff was great with communication to hold my reservation until I was able to get there. I flew in solo for the first time visiting Honolulu. I would most definitely book an visit again. Great location an convenient area.

    very nice hotel
    Very nice hotel with an excellent location near Waikiki beach. Finding a place to park the car just to check in was a complete hassle. Stopping in front of the hotel was prohibited as the hotel is on a very busy street. The free self parking lot was nice, but you need to acquire a pass from the hotel first to access it and then you need to return the pass after you leave the parking facility...hence the hassle.

    Liked the quality of room including comfortable bed and nice amenities. Did not like the location as it was located on a very busy street with high levels of traffic noise.
