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 loved every moment spent in my Ocean View suite. All members of the staff were very patient, helpful and friendly. The hotel had all the amenities both in the room and outside. A little study/den, a kitchenette, a living room, a nice bathroom with a Jacuzzi and 2 TV sets situated in the bedroom as well as in the living room . The hotel also has a swimming pool which I did not get a chance to use, unfortunately, due to my schedule and is situated in a central area full of shops (Walmart, Ross etc.) and restaurants; Chinatown, the Iolani Palace, the waterfront with the Aloha tower and more attractions are all within walking distance, the bus stop and the rental bicycles are right there too. I loved that it was away from the Waikiki caos but still just 15 mins from it by bus. Great place! 😍
Good hotel close to Holland American Dock.
(Los Angeles, California)
So If you want a hotel really close to Holland American this is it. There is a Starbucks next door and walking distance to the ship. Two blocks. But with luggage I would still get a car.
It’s not in what I would call a great area. Lots of homeless. There are a few good restaurants close and a real china town nearby.
The bus stop is right out the door to the beach. But, if you want beach book near the beach.
The room was nice, bed good, kitchen and frig.
Good for the day.
The good, the bad, and the ugly
First off, the location is great if you have downtown business. And it is very close... walking distance to the Queens Hospital.
Parking is a bit of a pain...up 7 floors, and then very tight parking spots.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful.
I understand all units are privately held, and it can be hit or miss.
Ours was a miss.
The room was classic early 70's... black leather and stainless steel. Queen size bed.. with 3 pillows and absolutely no extra bedding.
For business needs, this was a loser.
There were no convenient charging areas for electronics.. especially near the desk,and virtually all available wall sockets were occupied. We had to plug phones into wall socket and leave on floor.
Somehow, in a 38th floor unit , we had to kill 2 mosquitos.
It was quiet there, but this particular unit needs to be updated to at least the 90's.
Only choice Downtown
So this hotel is hit or miss. For business travel it's very convenient for the location, right across the street from my firm's office and there really isn't other hotel options.
The staff are very pleasant but the hotel is very old (decor and feel are late 80s/early 90s) and the rooms look it. However, they are renovating/updating the rooms with better furniture, beds and carpet. See if you can request one as there is a comfort difference between the two.
The suites have nice TVs and every room has its own wifi which is a plus for fast connections.
Great Location When Visiting Queen's Hospital
(West Des Moines, Iowa)
We traveled from Maui for my mom's surgery at Queen's Hospital. The hospital is walkable from the hotel ... about 15 minutes so excellent location for hospital. Beautiful mountain view from the room. Kitchenette area was handy. The hotel is a mix of hotel and condos. The room was clean. The majority of the restaurants nearby are fast food.
There is a bus stop and Walgreens across the street where homeless people hang out so I would not recommend for a woman traveling alone.
