Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Named for 19th century Hawaiian royalty, the Aqua Queen Kapiolani Hotel has some of the most spectacular views in all of Waikiki. Nestled on the edge of Kapiolani Ocean Park and a block away from the famed sandy beaches of Waikiki, the hotel’s décor and vibe are pure casual charm with historic flair, including enormous chandeliers, gleaming marble floors and a large portrait of the hotel’s namesake royalty. Standard rooms are compact; for just a few dollars more it’s worth it to upgrade to a larger room with shoreline views. The third-floor pool deck has unfettered views of the lush mountainside of Kapiolani Park, topped by the famed Diamond Head crater as well as a panoramic ocean vista. The hotel restaurant and bar spills out onto the deck for open-air dining three times a day. For an afternoon pick-me-up, the ground floor sweets shop serves coffee drinks, ice cream and other confections. For a break from the sun, the Honolulu Zoo is just across the street and the Waikiki Aquarium a 10-minute scenic walk south.
