Historical Traveller Reviews of Park Shore Waikiki Hotel
Nice hotel, great pricefrom Eugene34
t ask for betterfrom shopgal61
Just about everything was in walking distance (shops, international marketplace, zoo, beach, food, etc). There is a restaurant located on site, but we didn't use it. We opted for sushi on the strip and places like the food court in the international marketplace. Every Sat and Sun night right on the beach they have a big screen up to play movies and local vendors have booths with their food out. It was a very relaxing vacation and we plan on going back in the soon future and will definitely stay at this hotel again.
If you like to fish, there is a pier right across the street from the hotel where you can fish (don't need a license) and all you need for bait is bread, You can even snorkel right there on the Waikiki beach. I didn't think there would be many fish there with all the people swimming (normally that scares the fish away), but we saw just as many fish there as we saw at Haunama Bay.
If you are planning on heading to a luau, definitely go to paradise cove. The best for your money!! There are also people on the street that will try to get you to go to a timeshare promotion. They promise it will be 90 mins, we tried this only because they offered us 2 tickets to paradise cove and 2 tickets to a sunset dinner cruise (we would have paid over $250). Though the 90 mins was really 3 hours, it was worth it for the free tickets (which also included shuttle to and from).
If you have any questions about the hotel don't hesitate to ask. :)
Park Shore - best choice we made!from Lucyczek
We absolutely loved our stay there - Park Shore has also got a great restaurant on the 2nd floor (called LuLu’s - I have never seen such a big plate of Nachos before!) and the hotel's pool has a pretty view of the beach. It's not a Marriott style with a pool bar and attending waiters but nothing stops you from sneaking two doors down to Marriot's hot tub if that's your style. We liked the pool at the end of day to just cool down and relax. The location is great, gorgeous beach right across the street and walking distance to the International Market, next to ZOO (free parking there on the street if you want to save $ but make sure you pay your car insurance :) ) , Starbucks next door and Surf shop next to hotel's entrance. There is also a bike/moped rental company behind the hotel (on Lemon st) where we hired a Harley for 1/2 day. It was coooool! Car rental is really not needed for the whole stay, the buses for $2 will take you anywhere. But we rented a car for 2 days just to go shopping to the Premium Factory Outlets in Waikele (Brand name bargains!) and take a drive around the North Shore (went snorkling at Hilton's Turtle Bay!!!) We will definately stay at Park Shore again. The value for money is great and the views are hard to beat.
PS: Why do people need a fridge of size of Texas when ABC stores are located 10 m apart (the closest even has an entrance to the hotel Lobby) and you can keep refilling it every day?
BEST Location! BEST Views!from ApRiLBuG
If the location only matters...from UtahRelaxed
Now, they do offered valet parking, which is convenient when you are tired and want to relax, BUT the enterance is opposing traffice, and can only fit at most three cars at a time! Very fustrating as it is right next to a bus stop.
Great place to stay if you are only looking for a place to sleep, and are on a budget... but if you are planing to relax in your room, and enjoy a slow paced atmosphere... try again.
location!!...small room howeverfrom alooooooha
Loved the Park Shorefrom tsteichen697
Great price and location, okay roomfrom CBinAZ
Give and Take...from Hawaii555
Park Shore -- great location, clean roomsfrom Alasskagirl
Stay here if you are an adventurous traveler who likes to get out and do things. If your idea of a Hawaiian vacation is sitting by the pool being served Mai Tai's all day or being catered to by hotel staff -- this isn't the place for you.
By the way, the staff are fabulous and very helpful.
Top Local Tips for Honolulu
Hanauma Bay The #22 bus picks up right in front of the Park Shore Waikiki hotel, and takes you to Hanauma Bay for a mere $2. Definitely less expensive than the guided tours!
Too many souvenir shop stops Grand circle Island tour was really just an endless succession of souvenir shop stops. The Dole plantation is pretty lame. Germaines Luau was very disappointing food wise, plus check the weather before you book as there's no shelter when it rains! Imagine 650 people in yellow ponchos!! If you take the Ili Kai dinner cruise upgrade to an outside table for $10 it's well worthwhile.
Things to do on Oahu If you have never been on Oahu, it's worth going on a packaged island circle tour so you can sample all that the island has to offer. If you have a week or more, it would be worth it to rent a car and drive to another part of the island to experience the real Hawaii. Some areas (particularly the Leeward and North Shore) are not always friendly for tourists, but the Windward side is full of beauty and less populated beaches. It all depends on what your focus is: shopping? Check out Ala Moana and the Ward Centers. cultural attractions? Check out the Bishop Museum, Iolani Palace and Mission Houses, amongst others. food? Check out Chinatown, some of the more authentic Hawaiian restaurants like Ono. touristy cheese? Check out the over-priced luaus and Polynesian Cultural Center. Enjoy!
