Travel Bunny stayed at Ala Moana hotel, in Honolulu, Hawaii for 2 nights in August 2011.
Online, best rate you can book a room for is $119/night + taxes. Includes free wi-fi, breakfast is an additional charge.
The hotel is well located next to Ala Moana shopping centre. Nearly all buses going anywhere on the island, pass through Ala Moana. It’s also a 20 minute walk to Waikiki and 30-40 minute walk to downtown Honolulu. The Ala Moana beach is only a 5 minute walk away – beautiful and tranquil away from the Waikiki crowds.

The hotel has a decent pool area and gym on the 3rd floor
Hotel itself is a little dated, but is clean and very comfortable.
Breakfast buffet is an additional $10 (with hotel discount) and if you’re hungry it is a good price to pay. They also offer a good hot buffet breakfast for $14 + tax.
Hotel is recommended if you can get a good price on the rooms.
