Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Shoreline Waikiki is a trendy retro-styled property that would look quite at home on Miami Beach. The bright white facade conceals a tropical color palette, and all guests are welcomed with a traditional lei flower garland.

It’s not right on the oceanfront, but otherwise the location is pretty close to perfect -- the beach is only a five-minute walk away (guests can borrow beach towels from the front desk), and it’s known for its top-quality surfing.

Set in Waikiki -- home to some of the best dining, nightlife and shopping on Oahu -- the hotel is a block from the string of high-end boutiques and restaurants on Kalakaua Avenue.

This is a funky midsized hotel, with friendly local staff and a small rooftop pool. It doesn’t have all the amenities of a full-service resort, but it’s a great boutique alternative to the big chain hotels. There are a range of extras included in the $15 nightly resort fee like  wireless Internet access, tea and coffee in the lobby, newspapers, aloe vera and SPF sun kits, and a 24-hour business center.

Although the rooms are on the cozy side, they have been well thought out, and all rooms come with balconies. Fodor’s recommends the suites on the top floor for views of the ocean and Honolulu's skyline.

Enjoyed Most: The bed was comfortable and the rooms were clean. Quick walk to the beach and to the Waikiki shopping strip. Service was great, everyone was helpful and nice.
Other Comments: The rooms are very small. Great size for a couple but not for a family. The rooms are newly renovated and clean. There is no view since the hotel is surrounded by taller buildings on all sides. Big downfall and probably why I wouldn't stay here again is that the trash trucks come at 5am every morning and are very loud. Since they service all the large condos and hotels on that street, they are constantly beeping (backing up) for about 30 min and it's very difficult to sleep through it. It was our unwanted alarm clock. Other guests had similar complaints.

Enjoyed Most: The Shoreline was in a phenomenal location to everything we could possibly need or want to see. The staff was extremely pleasant, the room was spacious and clean. There is fresh coffee and tea in the lobby 24/7 along with fresh ice tea and fruit infused water. Though they do not serve breakfast, there were fresh apples available in the lobby each morning.
Other Comments: The only drawback was when you walk onto the balcony you are staring at the next building where many of the occupants did not care what their balcony looked like. Very unsightly. Other than that, this was our favorite hotel out of the four we stayed in for this vacation. Maholo, Shoreline!

Enjoyed Most: This was my first trip to Waikiki while I don't think I'd ever go back to Waikiki because in my opinion it's San Diego just with better beaches the shoreline is wonderful! It's location was perfect, right in the heart of Waikiki! The staff was wonderful, treated us well and made our honeymoon very special! Yes rooms are small but for is it was perfect and you could tell everything had just nicely been remodeled! Over all great experience!

Enjoyed Most: Great location, staff was incredibly friendly, the rooms appeared updated recently, beds were comfortable, complimentary wifi, delicious cucumber mint water provided in the lobby, and all for an amazing price for Waikiki.
Other Comments: Bathrooms were just okay - not bad, but did not appear updated like the rest of the room. Also, a little noise from street, but did not keep us from sleeping.

Enjoyed Most: Location to the beach
Other Comments: The hotel is very clean and the staff was friendly. Out of the control of staff is that the rooms are very small, and the balcony in the room is just a wasted effort. Too small and with only one chair on the balcony. I came prepared to enjoy a cocktail on the balcony at night but wasn't going to happen here. Then, a topper is that there is a pool on the top of the hotel with only 4 lounge chairs! We attempted to use the pool twice and the chairs were occupied. Like the balcony, why offer it with limitations to the seating.
