After a few days of staying in the central hub of Waikiki, we switched hotels and moved closer to the Ala Wai harbor, which is still only a 10-20 minute drive from the Waikiki area. Our next destination was Prince Waikiki, an upscale high-rise resort. We stayed there for 4 nights, and it was amazing. I have stayed in this area before, and while I love the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, I like how this area is quieter and less crowded.
As we pulled up to Prince Waikiki, you are immediately greeted and assisted by their bellhops. They were very kind and helpful throughout our stay. The hotel was just as expected, luxurious, swanky, and sophisticated. One of this hotel’s highlights is that they are directly facing the harbor, and all of their hotel rooms showcase ocean views.
At Prince Waikiki, I immediately felt safe, as they have implemented new COVID-19 guidelines throughout the hotel. At check-in, the employees provide an enhanced arrival experience while maintaining physical distancing. A complimentary welcome amenity is given to you, including a hand sanitizer and single-use disposable masks. Physical barriers have been implemented at the front desk and concierge. They also provide an in-room express check out service to provide an expedited and contactless departure experience. To learn more about Prince Waikiki’s new COVID-19 guidelines, click here.
**Like Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach, you must have proof of a negative Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) for COVID-19 on hand. They will ask you for it at check-in. To ensure a seamless check-in, make sure you print out your negative test results, as well as have your online uploads ready. Guests who arrive without a qualifying negative COVID-19 test must quarantine for 10 days. For more information about the Hawaiian requirements, click here.**
We stayed in their Standard Ocean Front room featuring 2 queen beds, 46” TV, separate shower, tub, private washlet, minifridge, and all standard amenities.
The room was very spacious for 2 people. The best part was the insane harbor and ocean views!
