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.
Not bad for the price you’ll pay. Beautiful room! Awesome view from the 23rd floor! Nice amenities in the room. Only thing that was disappointing... they provide good coffee for the coffee maker in the room, but I had no coffee cups...?! I told the front desk upon checking out and they replied “I’m so sorry sir. You should have called, we would have run some up to you right away.” I have no reason not to believe that. Staff was very helpful with keeping my bags all day after checking out and not having a flight until later in the evening. All in all, highly recommended!
The only hotel in downtown
So it’s a bit different. Lobby is accessed via escalators to below street level.
Rooms have amazing views.
Rating of 4 stars reflects location, views and convenience. Otherwise it’s bed on a nice clean room.
Lovely front desk.
It’s not a resort.
It’s not the best hotel to bring a family for a vacation unless it’s centered around downtown and Chinatown
Appalling. Filthy, cigarette burned carpet.
Appalling. Filthy, cigarette burned carpet. Booked for 3 nights, stayed one. Would have left immediately but we arrived about 10:45 in the evening (having told hem we would be arriving late) to find that the lifts were closed for maintenance from 11:00 so we were "marooned" on he 34th floor.Room was old, musty and very run down. Reception hard to find, it is in the basement of an office tower with no signs.
Not a real "hotel," uneven room quality
I've stayed her a couple times because it's close to the government building and courts. The surrounding area has some good restaurants, but is relatively low rent overall. Not walkable to any beaches or beachfronts. But if you're there for business, it's a decent stay.
The "hotel" seems to be mostly occupied by full time students, with tourists taking up other rooms. The rooms vary greatly in quality. I stayed in a very well maintained and furnished 1 bedroom in the past - that was great.
But during my last visit I was placed first in a sparsely furnished 1 bedroom that had HVAC problems (dark marks around the vents and maybe some surrounding ceiling damage) and a distinct chemical and mildew smell. After I complained, I was moved into a much cleaner, but even more sparsely furnished (e.g., not a single picture on the walls) 1 bedroom. The room ended up being fine, but it's not a "hotel" by any stretch of the imagination.
Very close to the Queen's Medical Center
The location is excellent. The building and the views are great. The reserved parking is a very nice addition. There is not a business center. The furniture in the unit we stayed in was definitely outdated. The couch, and a chair in the bedroom, were extremely uncomfortable. The bed's left a bit to be desired. There were no extra blankets. The coffee machine was just plain lousy. Simply put...a really nice room needs some serious upgrades to make it a 5 star rating. A better restaurant inside the hotel would be nice as well.
