Location, location, location
Although the rooms are ok, the real reason to recommend this hotel is its location. It is located right on Fort Derussy Park and as a result has very few high rises near it. The beach is a beautiful short walk through the park, and it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki to be quiet, but close enough to walk there (5-10 minutes to the heart of Waikiki). We usually stay on Kauai, but when we go to Honolulu, we always stay at the Luana Waikiki.
