Travel to Honolulu – Review – The Embassy Suites Hotel at Waikiki Beach

20 Jan

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of staying at the Embassy Suites Waikiki Beach.

It was a pleasure, very clean, beautifully Hawaiian themed and breakfast and evening snacks were available on the fourth floor – grand lanai, (patio). The evening snacks were all carb, but the breakfast as cooked to your order omelets, and a very wide array of breakfast foods, even miso soup and rice for our Japanese friends.

They bill it as the only all suites resort. Our suite was nicely decorated. I love the palm tree motifs. It was very solidifying to have a suite. We only watched TV in the sitting room. (good feng shui)

And the hula artwork.

And the hibiscus bed cover.

The people were unusually friendly every where, hotel staff and hotel guests. Was this a reflection of my inner reality?

One of our beds needed replacing. It made it so you were sleeping with your head downhill. Otherwise it was a sublime weekend. I highly recommend it.

    A place I’ve never been. We almost got there but opted for China instead. I’m very interested to hear more about your experience. We are off to Aruba at the end of February.
    Can’t wait to the chance to capture that week with my cameras.

      Bonnie,
      That will be great to see what pictures you take in Aruba. I’ve never been there yet.
      Waikiki is so photogenic. It is relaxing just to stand there, anywhere. And the flowers are everywhere. Living is so pleasant. It is dangerous however – I went to Honolulu for a class about ten years ago. I came home and told my husband I want to move to Hawaii.

    My husband’s best friend went to Hawaii for vacation.. almost 10 years ago. lol! He loved it so much that he never left. He’s missed, but we are very much looking forward to going over there for a visit.

    I’m glad you had a great time!

    Wonderful read about your experience. Since I live in a very warm climate near the beach, I doubt I will ever get to Hawaii! I prefer to travel to cooler climates when possible, so I travel through posts like yours. Any vacation is wonderful when one doesn’t have to work or do the dishes!
