Staycation at the Hilton Waikiki Beach: The View

Ocean view at various times of day
Diamond Head view.
Because my stay was in September during the shoulder (or low) season, I was upgraded to an ocean view room on the 19th floor of the Hilton Waikiki Beach. Though the hotel, located on Kuhio Avenue, is one block away from famous Waikiki beach almost all rooms on the ocean side have superior views. This is helped by the fact that a small hotel, church and parking lot occupies the block separating the hotel from Kalakaua Avenue which runs along Waikiki beach.

My oceanside room also has a narrow view of famous Diamond Head Crater to the east and the hotels of Waikiki to the west. Rooms with mountain views can be spectacular or panoramic though fronted by urban Honolulu. For fun I took photos (above) of the ocean view from my room at various times during the day. Few would complain about such a sight. More info at

Note: This post is one in a series about the hotel based on a stay from 2008. The look of the hotel has not changed but quality or service can change within that time. The hotel was formerly known as the Hilton Prince Kuhio.
