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.
I got the best room here in advance, partly because I saw how the rooms vary. This suite was clean. That's the only good thing about the whole thing. Be prepared to pay for parking just to check in. The lobby area is nice. The parking garage is creepy. The elevators opened onto a hallway better suited to a 1980 horror film, narrow, totally unappealing, big padlocks on the doors, a lawyers office. And it smelled. It hit you in the face as soon as you stepped into the hall. Super creepy. The view was terrible, barely ocean. Cheap furnishings, uncomfortable furniture. The good reviews for this place sound like they were on an entirely different property. I would never stay here again. It is managed by Aston and while the staff are nice enough, they're just a managing agent and really don't care.
Good location when working downtown in need of updating
(Princeton Junction, NJ)
Executive Center is the only downtown Honolulu location. It is a condominium hotel. If you have baggage can be a challenge as the main lobby is accessable by an escalator or you have to find the single elevator that is not obviously marked and use an intercom for access. The staff is accommodating, friendly and helpful. the location is great if your business is downtown, you are needing a nights accommodation before or after taking a cruise. The rooms are dated and in need of a refresher. Wall paper peeling, carpets frayed, cabinets dated. the linens were good and the soaps and amenitities. The unit had a small frigdge and an old dated electric cook top. TVs are new with cable and internet provided as part of the package. Parking is available for an additonal charge and like many downtown places spaces are tight but at least they are available when you have a car. Being downtown you get all the noise of the city even on the 25th floor. It was great for our use since we had to work at the court house within easy walking distance.
Great location and comfy accommodations
I love coming to this business hotel because of the easy access to the area in downtown honolulu. i never get the same type of room twice. The room i had was a large corner room with two double beds with a separate living area. The bedroom had lots of space and nice mountain views of diamond head. My plane came in late so unluckily all the eating places i wanted to eat at were closed. It was a quiet and comfortable evening though.
We stayed here with a friend to n a long term assignment. It is very tall with good views of the mountains. There is a nice pool with lane markers but we were so busy outside we didn’t get a chance to use it.
The amenities are nice. The staff is friendly. They helped us get the shower fixed timely and gave us directions for the bus schedule.
My daughter liked the complimentary Hawaiian Tropic shampoos and conditioners.
We were able to cook and do our laundry here as well.
It is more of a business hotel than a family resort.
Nice location away from Waikiki
This is a great hotel located up the street from the Aloha Tower. Many shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. Mid point between airport and downtown tourists. Clean hotel, easy check in/out and assigned parking spots.
