We stayed at Embassy Suites Waikaki. Here is a link to their rooms: http://www.embassysuiteswaikiki.com/suites/room-types?pid=su...

It is one block back from the beach and you get free buffet breakfast. Most evenings there is also a free Manager's reception with drinks and snacks. Sometimes they had entertainment at the reception as well.

This was about 4 years ago but it gets good reviews. https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Hotel_Review-g60982-d615153-R...

Make sure you get a sea view!

Thank you
Did you go to the other islands ie Maui and Big Island?
Have been told to spend a couple of nights on each?
What do you think?

We did both Waikiki and Maui. 5 nights at maui. We stayed at the montague which was beyond amazing but it was a prize win and I know its really expensive. We would pick Maui over Waikiki any day. It was just so beautiful. But saying that I think it depends what you like. Maui was relaxed and chilled, great snorkelling and amazing scenery, slow paced compared to Waikiki. Enjoy your trip, we only went last year and I'm already dreaming of going back!

We stayed at the Outrigger on the beach. You walk out of the hotel and you are on the beach on one side and in the main shopping centre the other way, it's a few doors from the Cheesecake Factory. A lot of Aussies stay here. Also make sure to check out Ross Stores, best shopping, you have to go through the racks to find stuff but it's worth the hunt to find treasures. We went Jan this year was excellent and we can't wait to go back

Maui was my absolute favourite. We stayed at the Westin and it was brilliant.

If you are looking for an apartment the Ilikai is awesome has studio, 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments which are really spacious. It is really close to the Ala Moana shopping centre and the Pink line bus stops right out the front it is walking distance to the beach and many other attractions and you can see the fireworks from Hilton Hawaiian village from your balcony. lots of great restaurants, pubs, pizza bars and shops close by. It is really reasonably priced through waikiki beach rentals and you can chose your apartment. It is an older building from the 60s but is very clean and tidy . great for longer waikiki stays . My friend is in hawaii ATM and has paid $3000 for 6 nights at the Hilton and we paid $1400 for 10 nights at the Ilikai for a much bigger room . it really depends what you are looking for if you want 5 star you will have to pay and there are some beautiful hotels in Waikiki but there are also lots of amazing apartments at fantastic prices which means more money for shopping

If you are going to Maui the Royal Lahaina is beautiful. Our son was married there last November.

Agree with the Ilikai.
We were there a year ago for daughter's 21st, good balcony and very roomy & self contained so you can make your own breakfast and have snacks and drinks accessible anytime, and then splurge on great dinners!

Also agree with Ilikai, we stayed there in 2014 and had friends staying in the hilton, our view was much better than theirs, bigger room and at half the price.

Could be worth looking for an apartment or airbnb with 6 people, the 'resort tax' and other hotel 'taxes' are outrageous in Hawaii and with the tips too, make for an expensive holiday. Food is pretty reasonable at the supermarkets and supermarket beer is extraordinarily cheap. If you choose The Hilton at Waikiki, make sure you're in the front, modern Ali'i tower facing the ocean where afternoon sun on the balcony is great, private pool - mainly adults and a lot less kids than the main pools and you can get an amazing view of the Friday night fireworks from the balcony or go down to the private pool to watch for free snax. The Rainbow Tower's OK but the towers at the back of the Hilton are, well, erm, not great! There's a great little restaurant near The Hilton called Goofy's (a left footed surfer), hard to find - up wooden stairs over a shop - great value and excellent food popular with the Japanese tourists.

if you haven't booked flights yet, Jetstar have some amazing ones with their birthday sale, think it might be feb-mar 18 though.

Normally I'd prefer Hawaiian airlines but at about half the price, Jetstar is certainly worth a look.

Ross's was a life-saver when our luggage went missing, I'm still wearing some of the things I bought 5 years on ...brand labels at ridiculously cheap prices :)
