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.
Very very dissapointed with the hotel, it is not as advertised! The room smelled and the furniture was outdated and old. Turns out it is a Time-share room which I was not informed of at any stage, thus the lived in smell!! We were moved the following day to another room,better view but still SMELLED! Bed(s) were old and uncormfortable. All in all, a very poor start to our vacation. The restaurnat in the lobby doesnt even belong to the hotel either. Overall, not as advertised, expensive for what is on offer, and no contact with management either during or subsequent to the fiasco. The front staff were very nice and tied to help in a situation that obvioulsy they have no control over.
Location is everything
(Green Cove Springs, Florida)
We need to stay in Chinatown for business. This was a very good option as it was centrally located and the price was right and we knew people who had stayed here and the reviews were pretty good. Edit appears to be a bunch of condos or such that are rented out nightly as hotel rooms. So I think that the furnishings might be a little different. The rooms are outside and in some respects but our room on the 31st floor facing east toward the mountains was very very spacious with a mini kitchen dining table and chairs and a desk and a large fridge The bathroom was adequate and the bedroom side was quite large. My only complaint about the bedroom side was no chair or sofa or any place to sit. Service was very good and the best thing about the place is the pool the pool is a little oasis in the concrete jungle on the 11th floor and just perfect
Do not stay at this Hotel, Stay on Waikiki Beach or nearby
First of all, this hotel use to be dorm rooms that were then converted to a hotel. Narrow hallways, low ceilings, smelled, no quality to the rooms. The location was not good. The Waikiki Beach area is amazing, great shopping, restaurants, night life, landscape, etc. Stay anywhere near Waikiki Beach.
this "business hotel" worked for us
(The Villages, Florida)
We selected the Aston for the night after our Pride of America cruise based on convenience to airport and Pearl Harbor (15-20 minute drive), and the lap lanes in the pool. Obviously oriented toward business travelers, there was little activity on Saturday night. Our suite was on 31st floor with nice view of the mountains. Separate bedroom with TV had glass walls and sliding glass door to living room (possible safety hazard). Living room had no couch or TV. But did have dining table and full kitchen. The parking garage was tight, with 10 levels. We were charged $25.00 for the night - reasonable compared to Waikiki hotels. The ambiance around the pool (open air on 11th floor of connecting building) was excellent with 3 palm trees and other plantings, and rock mini-wall as outside shower. The quality of everything was very high, and we were glad to have chosen it rather than something less well maintained but slightly closer to the airport.
Great option for downtown Honolulu
The apartment was as advertised. I am very pleased with the amenities, the cleanliness and the views. Centrally located and within a walking distance to Ala Moana or Waikiki. Friendly and helpful staff. I strongly recommend it!
