Resting on the shore of the Ala Wai Harbor in the heart of Waikiki, Hawaii Prince Hotel overlooks the ocean but is not beachfront. The two-tower hotel's claim to fame is that every single room is ocean view, though. The oceanfront rooms include 547 standard rooms and 57 luxury suites. Twenty-eight floors of guest rooms sit atop a five-story base containing restaurants, open-air lounge, meeting rooms, banquet facilities, lobby, shops, guest services and ample parking.

Inside the luxurious and large lobby is a gift shop and bar. A modest coffee shop offers espresso and breakfast basics to take on the go.
A free shuttle offers guests a ride farther into Waikiki, where an abundance of shopping and ocean fun awaits; one of the great things about Hawaii Prince Hotel is the location. Ala Moana Shopping Center is just one block over, and an abundance of restaurants like Wailana Coffee House and Nobu are just down the street.
A 27-hole golf course is part of the resort, but lies out in Ewa Beach on the west side of the island. There are beaches to the right (west) side of the hotel, and out front is a popular surf break called Kaiser's. There's an elevated large pool and hot tub on the fifth floor, surrounded by chairs and a pool bar. Self parking is available right out front, as well as valet and self parking in the hotel.
