The 41-story Aston at the Executive Centre Hotel is the only hotel in downtown Honolulu that has floor-to-ceiling windows where you can take in spectacular views of the city, harbor, mountains and ocean. Located within walking distance of the State Capitol, government offices, the city’s financial district, Hawaii Pacific University, Aloha Tower, and Chinatown, it's convenient and easily accessible. Each of the hotel’s spacious suites offer separate sleeping areas.
Great place to stay close to cruise port, shopping, china town and state capitol
We flew in the day before a cruise leaving from Honolulu and chose this hotel based on location and reasonable (for Honolulu) price. Took a cab from the airport for $30 including tip. Hotel was a little hard to find from the street, but once we discovered the escalator down to the lobby below street level, it was fine.
The room was huge and clean. It included a kitchen with 2 burner stove, microwave, small refrigerator and all the pots, pans, dishes, etc. that you would need.
I'm not sure if the hotel has a pool or not. We were too beat with jet lag and last minute purchases for our cruise to need it.
The hotel is located at an urban shopping area. I hesitate to call it a mall, but that's the best description I can give. Ross Dress for Less and Walmart were especially convenient.
China Town was 2 blocks away and made an interesting walk. We ate at "Topped" Korean BBQ. Outstanding! You should go!
The State Capitol and the Palace were all easy walks.
The cruise port is a long, but easy walk. Took us no more than about 15 minutes to walk it with luggage.
This property gets mixed reviews for various reasons, this is people being people. We (travel agents) chose due to close proximity to cruise terminal and a change in scenery from the usual Waikiki. BUT cannot say enough about the staff and management esp because of unfortunate circumstances upon our late nigh arrival afrter a long delayed flight from SFO. Taxi from HNL dropped off, bags into lobby, only to discover my husband's carry on with camera, wallet, credit cards, our Passports left in cab. Panic. What to do next, where to begin. Hotel Security suggest filing police report and mentioned one of desk staff also worked TSA at airport, may have some ideas/contacts. She Did !! Promptly telephoned HNL Airport taxi dispactch to ask re guests recently transported to this hotel and Thank God, had the record and able to contact Driver who immediately returned with our bag, all intact..added cab fate but so what? Unbelieveable this huge International City and we are Blessed. Thanks to Desk Staff Niz abd Dibin and to HNL Police Officer D. Ngwen who arrived promptly to alltake all information and wait with us to assure all accounted for and we were alright. We enjoyed our walk about down to the seawall, a few of the shops and fun Oktoberfest Dinner in the hotel restaurant. Aloha
The property is in need of refurbishment.

This hotel, located in the core central office area, has all of the amenities you might expect from a Walmart adjacent facility - no gym, grim pool and no room service. On the positive side, the rooms are good size with a little kitchenette and it is close to the State Capital.
Weird vibe - needs an update badly
This place has a lot of potential. It’s in a decent location and the building has common areas that show its former class. But the hotel needs a complete remodel. When I saw the bathroom tub - I immediately thought of the Brady Bunch. The place is clean and comfortable. The beds and linens are nice and the views are great. But a small investment in updating this place would make a world of difference. It feels like a 1980s hotel inside and its 2019. Time for a much needed remodel for the price. I won’t return without a remodel.
Beautiful views and Comfy accommodations!
After staying here numerous times, i am so happy to say this was my best stay. I requested a room with double beds and happily the request was fulfilled. Upon arrival i was greeted with the reception knowing my name.. that was impressive. The room was beautifully decorated and updated to the nines! I hope i can get that room again! Thank you Aston Executive Center!
