Historical Traveller Reviews of Aston Pacific Monarch Hotel
Great Hotelfrom stephaniexx
Much mahalos & alohas to everyone at the Monarch!
Great deal and locationfrom Dede53
We had booked this through Costco travel and the price we paid was great.
I would definitely call this a condo as compared to a hotel room. It doesn't have the atmosphere of the big name hotels at Waikiki, but I didn't travel 5000 miles to spend time in our room. Our room had a partial ocean view, was clean, and fulfilled our needs.
The location is ideal, walking distance to the beach,restaurants, and shopping. There is a concierge to help you with any tours or activities.
It's a great value and yes we'd stay there again.

Wonderful Hotel, Reasonable Pricefrom mwisdom562
After a few moments of commotion, we assured the kids that they would all be very comfortable in our room in Hawaii. And, indeed, the great folks at the Aston Pacific Monarch made us look like heros.
After our very long, trans-continental flight from Jacksonville, FL we arrived at the front desk of the Pacific Monarch around 5:00PM local time (our bodies thought it was 11:00PM). The lobby, as many public places are in Hawaii, is open air, cool and comfortable. One corner had a small sitting area with a babbling waterfall and tropical foilage. We were greeted in the typical friendly, Hawaiian fashion, with a hearty, "Aloha," and quickly checked-in.
If there is anything to complain about with this splendid hotel, it is that the first room the assigned us to had two twin beds in the master bedroom - decidedly unacceptable for my wife an I, we like to cuddle. But, after a few moments of confusion, we were re-assigned to a more acceptable room on the 29th floor.
The view was spectacular! To the north we could look out upon the cloud veiled peaks guarding Honolulu and to the south we could see the surfers off Waikik beach trying to catch waves. Now, to be sure, it was a partial ocean view, but for me, I could see enough of it to make it an ocean view. My wife and I took to sitting on the lanai at night and gazing at the lights climbing the mountains in glittering spikes.
The air-conditioner cooled the room just fine and even kept the bedroom cool during the day when the door was open. But, at night, when our door was closed the a/c could not do the job. We asked for a table fan and left our lanai door open, the breezes coming off the mountains kept us plenty cool and, even a little chilly a few evenings.
As with most hotels, location is a major selling point. While the Aston Pacific Monarch is not on the beach it is only a few short blocks away. In fact, while sitting on the lanai we could often hear music from some of the beachfront establishments wafting up to us. The hotel is close to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment as well. And we found that we rarely needed to use the rental car unless we were leaving the city of Honolulu for adventures further away on the island. Parking was a bit of a challenge at times in the very small and narrow parking garage but, we always managed and at $10 a day it wasn't too outragious.
The pool on the hotel roof was small, but I don't know about anyone else, when I am staying a few blocks from one of the most famous beaches in the world, my swimming time is devoted to the beach, not the pool. There is also a hot tub on the pool deck that was quite nice on evenings after exploring the island on foot. Below the pool deck is a large, open lounge room with views of the mountains, a television and several comfortable couches to sit on, perfect for stretching out and relaxing in the evenings. And here's a secret -- the Coke machine in the lounge dispensed 20oz sodas for the surprizing price of only $1.00. What a deal! Particulalrly in a hotel where I am accustomed to paying $1.50 or more for a 12oz can.
All-in-all, we had a wonderful stay at the Pacific Monarch with nothing bad to say about it. The room was comforatble, the kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, dishes, full sized-appliances and even a microwaves. We saved a bundle by eating breakfasts and a lunch or two right in the room. The parking, while the spaces were a challenge to manuver a mini van into, was acceptable. And the location was ideal. What more can you ask for for $100 a night with the Entertainment Coupon book discount. Not bad for a family of 5. We highly recommend this establishment.
