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.
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!
Beware. Terrible “Hotel”
We stayed here due to its proximity to NCL Cruise pier. It is an urban hotel that is really a set of condos. Arriving at 9 pm there were already numerous homeless people on the street in close proximity to front entrance, which is an escalator. Our Uber driver told us not to walk around after dark. The woman at the front desk told us, yes, there were numerous homeless out there, but “if you leave them alone, they won’t bother you.” Not the Aloha welcome we were expecting. So the location, other than being close to pier, is really bad and should be avoided.
To make bad matters even worse, the hotel is just a set of condos managed by a management company and is not managed well. I agree with other reviews that their employees don’t care because it’s not their property, a common issue with like properties. They know nothing of the rooms. We upgraded to a water view and I posted a photo of the view. Hardly any water and lots of industrial equipment. The rooms are suites, but there is no curtain on the French doors dividing the bedroom from the living space. So it cannot be used as a suite, as someone cannot sleep while your partner is watching TV or even reading in the living area. The room was sparse with nothing to sit on except a low quality pull out couch that slid when you sat on it. No rugs or carpet, our room looked more like a dressing room in Macy’s than a hotel room. The air travel above hotel is very loud and disturbing, and our room had a steady set of loud thumps that came on a regular basis, also very disturbing. As a added bonus, if you stay on the weekend, the restaurant is closed. Not even a coffee bar in the lobby with muffins. Nothing! Instead they give you a map to venture among the homeless outside to find a nearby Seven Eleven or Starbucks. The TV operation is also incomprehensible to operate with a explanatory card providing numerous sets of codes to just turn it on. It didn’t work the first five times we tried to turn it on. The simple on/off switch on the remote does not work normally.
In short, I would avoid this “hotel” as it is not a hotel at all and is not safe at night. Need to take Uber to dock anyway do I would recommend staying at a real hotel in a safe area that has basic amenities that this place lacks.
I wish that the room was like the photo
We stayed here as it is closer to the airport than most hotels in Honolulu. Unfortunately we found that the rooms are run down. The walls in the rooms are in poor condition and the bathrooms are extremely dated. Our suite was very clean and the carpet had been shampoo'ed recently. A large bed as advertised. There are some good restaurants in the neighborhood (10 minute walk). The pool is very basic.
Terrible stay with staff that don’t care and can’t even apologise
Paid for a corner suite with a king bed, get in the room, has two singles. When we raised it with the staff we were told not there fault, they don’t know what are in the rooms.... got moved to a room which was half the size with half the features and no compensation... told we would be called if a room matching our reservation came up (we were staying 4 nights) guess what no calls... I would of let it go if the staff could of admitted the fault and apologized, instead all I got was it’s not their fault and they don’t know what’s in the room... clearly not true! Would not recommend booking here... no guarantees you will get what you paid for! At least our friends on the same booking did... half right!
