Why We Love This Hotel

  • Right on Ala Moana Boulevard, a 10-minute walk from Ala Moana Center and Ala Moana Beach Park
  • During Polo Season, April-August, guests receive complimentary tickets to Sunday matches at the North Shore sister property, Hawaii Polo Club 
  • The beach is less than a 10-minute walk away


A small, family-run boutique hotel with warm, friendly staff and a great location, The Equus hotel offers reasonably priced rooms right in the center of Waikiki’s action. Located on the west end of downtown, on Ala Moana Boulevard, it’s within walking distance of tons of shops and restaurants -- 10-minutes to the Ala Moana shopping center, the world’s largest open-air mall -- and the beach at Ala Moana park.

Originally the Driftwood Hotel, the property was renamed the Hawaii Polo Inn in the early 1990’s after ownership changed hands to the son of Fred Daily, an avid polo player. Now as the Equus Hotel, it’s still home to both the headquarters and offices for the Hawaii Polo Club. Honouring this longstanding tradition, rooms show off Hawaiian-inspired decor with a polo-themed twist featuring vintage photographs of old Paniolo cowboys.

During Polo season (April-August), guests receive complimentary VIP tickets to catch a match at the hotel’s North Shore sister property, the Hawai’i Polo Club. The polo fields sit right on the beach (the only beachfront polo fields in the world) and on Sundays during the season, guests can sample authentic Hawaiian cuisine from a variety of food vendors.

Down in the lobby, Da Hi Brew Café is open for coffee, tea and pastries by day. By night, it transforms into Paniolo Bar, a neighborhood favourite where guests will find equestrian-themed décor (think saddles for seats) and cocktails using locally sourced ingredients along with options from local breweries and distilleries.

There’s a small, intimate dipping pool that’s good for a quick refresh, and a quiet poolside deck nice for relaxing with a drink from the bar.
