Need to know




Prince Waikiki is a luxury hotel on the far west side of Waikiki, right where Waikiki meets downtown Honolulu. The property sits on the peaceful Ala Wai Harbor. Every room has a marina view of sailboats docked just outside. You’re about a 10 minute walk from the beach.


A $55.4M renovation in 2017 completely redesigned and upgraded all rooms and suites, added a new infinity pool and Club Lounge. It also brought 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar, Katsumidori Sushi Tokyo (their 1st location outside of Japan), and Honolulu Coffee Co. 


The rooms are all flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows that actually open. (FYI only the Lanai Suites have balconies.) You can see the sunset from most rooms. 


Guests can take advantage of the offsite golf course and onsite spa. 


And as far as luxury hotels in Waikiki go, the price tag is pretty great.

  • They won TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice 2020 and 2021 Awards. 

  • They have 2 other hotels — Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in Maui and Hapuna Beach Resort on the Big Island. 

  • In 2017, they spent $55.4M on a renovation that completely redesigned the entire hotel. Every room was upgraded. They added the new infinity pool and club lounge. They also opened 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar, Katsumidori Sushi Tokyo and Honolulu Coffee Co.

  • According to Honolulu Haunts, ever since its doors first opened, there have been rumors that the hotel is haunted. Soon after they opened in 1953, guests and employees started noticing strange things that couldn’t be explained — blue orbs that emerge from the walls, cold chills that pass over them when walking down hallways late at night, eerie voices speaking in native Hawaiian in empty suites or dark hallways.

    Bellhops have reported carts of luggage going missing and then turning up hours later — found anywhere from the ballroom to the kitchen, the coffeehouse, or in another guest’s room. Supposedly, the employee training tells new bellhops to keep luggage carts in their sites so they don’t go missing.

    Some people think the Prince Kuhio himself visits the hotel as there have been sightings of a Hawaiian man with a mustache standing in the lobby, who disappears before they can get a good look. Several guests report talking to a man with a large mustache on the elevators, but no one ever actually sees him leave the elevator. One woman later recognized him from a black and white portrait. 

  • The hotel was first built in 1953. 

  • The hotel is named after Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole, the last prince of the Kingdom of Hawaii. He was known as the Prince of the People. After he was dethroned, he later became a member of Congress.
