This modern high-rise has more than respectable 1- and 2-bedroom rooms, with earth-toned furnishings, marble baths and bold, modern artwork. Spacious condo-style suites have full kitchens and some have private lanai with peek-a-boo ocean views. Beware of mandatory departure cleaning costs that start at a costly $175. Parking is $30 per day.

Step outside the downstairs lobby and you’re right on Waikiki Beach Walk – then keep walking five minutes to the beach or the off-site swimming pool.
