A Weekend Escape at the Park Shore Waikiki


After attending an event last year at the Park Shore Waikiki, I was quite impressed with the property, and I thought that the hotel's location, views, and recently-renovated rooms would make for a great weekend escape.

Upon arrival at the 221-room hotel, we left our car with the valet and stepped into the spacious, open-air lobby.


After a quick check-in at the front desk, we made our way to our two Ocean View Double Bed Rooms.

Each room consisted of two very comfortable beds, a desk, large screen TV, mini refrigerator, coffee maker, and safe.

Super comfy beds!

The rooms were identical with the exception of the bathrooms (one had a stand-up shower, another had a tub).

PAYA eco-friendly bath amenities are offered in the bathrooms, and I loved that the vanities provided a lot of counter space.

We spent a lot of time in our air-conditioned rooms relaxing.  We also enjoyed sitting out on the lanai, gazing at the pretty views.

Gorgeous views!
From right outside the door we had an amazing view of Diamond Head.

We had rooms right next to each other, but they were non-connecting rooms, which turned out to be a little inconvenient - my kids kept wanting to switch rooms, and we constantly had to go back and forth between rooms to get belongings.  The Park Shore Waikiki does offer outer connecting doors on some of its rooms, however, so consider requesting those rooms if you have a large family split between two rooms.

Although the Park Shore Waikiki is located on the corner of Kapahulu and Kalakaua, we could barely hear any street noise, or even noise from the pool below.

Speaking of the pool, whether you're swimming or lounging on the sundeck, you'll get great views of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head!

The Park Shore Waikiki also offers many other amenities (included with the daily hospitality fee), such as a vending room, a shuttle to Ala Moana Center, newspaper, yoga classes, juice and water in the lobby, and Wi-Fi!

You can also find great dining options on property, including LuLu's (you can read my review here) and Tucker & Bevvy Picnic Basket (you can read my review here).

The Park Shore Waikiki is ideally located - you are just a crosswalk away from the beach, and next to the hotel is the Honolulu Zoo and Kapiolani Park.  There are numerous restaurants and shops within walking distance as well.

The convenient location and numerous amenities made our stay at the Park Shore Waikiki very enjoyable, but what really made our staycation delightful was the service.

From the valet, to the front desk employees, to housekeeping - everyone pleasantly greeted us, "talked story" with us, and smiled at us.  I truly felt welcomed!


The Park Shore Waikiki provided all I needed for a weekend escape - plenty of dining options so I could escape the kitchen, air conditioned rooms to escape the heat, and beautiful views to escape the stress of daily life.

Whether you want to escape for a weekend or longer, the Park Shore Waikiki will be ready to welcome you!
