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.
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.
Best Hotel for Great Aloha Run
This is absolutely the best place to stay for the Great Aloha Run or any other reason. The staff is excellent and make you feel like family. I will be here every February. Plenty of eateries within walking distance.
Enjoy the different Honolulu
Great location without sandy beach.But walk distance to the place. Walk distance to cruise terminal. Walk distance to Aloha Tower with lovely bar and restaurant nearby .Walk distance to china town with many restarants.In the middle of business center but all these are not just for business travellers.
Marugame Udon just downstairs.The line of Marugame Udon at Wikiki is ridiculous.But here you can easily find a table even at the busiest hour.The line out the restaurant is for take out.A good reatraunt just in the lobby with great live music in the evening.But most of the reatruants are close on Sunday.
Two super markets and one 7-11 just downstairs.You can find everything you need for no matter how long you will stay.Cook a easy meal at your own kinchen is super easy.
BIG rooms.All suits.Great view no matter facing ocean or mountain.So is sandy beach realy matter?If you do want to go to beach just jump on a bus.Many bus stops just downstairs.
