    Fabulous 8.6 From 395 reviews

    Very good 8.0
    My hotel stay overall was great because this hotel was in a great location where you could walk to ail the shops and restaurants within minutes.My only complaint would be being from Australia and having paid for my stay in advance was not aware of the extra 20 Usd I needed to pay for room service every night and using the pool when I didn’t even look at the pool. Another thing I need to advice people of is if you have hired a rental car this hotel has no parking and you are charged 28usd per day for parking your car in a public parking which is a good 7 minutes walk a few blocks down. So I ended up paying just under $450 dollars extra for my five night stay.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Heart of Waikiki
    We enjoyed the Polynesian very much. Although it wasn’t an ocean view, we were walking distance (2-3 blocks) from Waikiki beach! We were in the heart of Waikiki and all restaurants and shops of Waikiki were in walking distance. The rooms were a good size. I do recommend if you want it more peaceful to ask for a poolside room. Also, the staff was very friendly. If you needed beach towels or chairs, you can rent them for free! Many other reviewers talk about the parking, but it’s in a garage that’s across the street and about 2 blocks away. Nonetheless, it’s a 5 story hotel and the others around it outsize it, but truthfully, I would rather have stayed there than anywhere else. We were hardly at the hotel, but when we were, we enjoyed it.

    Not my cup of tea
    We drove around and around trying to locate the check-in parking (there isn't any). The hotel is along a busy, noisy road. The room was comfortable but smelled like a combination of mango and natural gas. I was not expecting the toilet to be a bidet, which seemed like cheap plastic and had unclear instructions. I had planned to stay again after traveling to the other side of the island, but I cancelled the stay. I would not stay again or recommend.

    Kindness of Polynesia
    We enjoyed our stay even though we needed to ask for basic items for our room, such as paper items and coffee. The staff were very nice and helpful.

    Nice hotel in great location
    Polynesian Residences is in a fabulous location, at the west end of Waikiki. Easy to get in and out of, dedicated parking spaces at the building across the street, and steps from restaurants and shopping. Because it's at one end of Waikiki, it's bit of a walk to the middle section of the beach -- Ft. Derussey Beach Park is a little easier to get to.
