The high-rise Hilton in Waikiki Beach is a popular location for couples who want easy access to stunning nightlife and Waikiki Beach itself, one of the most iconic beaches in the world. Featuring stylish, tropical-inspired rooms, along with a stunning rooftop pool, it’s the perfect place to relax in between exploring. A destination wedding here would surely take inspiration from its surroundings, which include waterfalls, exotic wildlife, and Hawaii’s well-known hospitality. All amongst the unique cosmopolitan island experience only Hilton can offer.
The only on-site restaurant is attractive and popular, but pricey. You’re likely better off exploring other nearby restaurants if affordability is a concern.
Reception locations include a grand ballroom, or Altitude @ 37, a bar on the top floor with sweeping panoramic views of Honolulu.
The resort sits on Kuhio beach, one of the “three” beaches that create the full stretch of Waikiki Beach. This section is quieter and shadier than its counterparts, adding a higher level of privacy to your Hilton Waikiki wedding.

“I have stayed at five different hotels near Waikiki Beach and most hotels are unfortunately quite dated. However this hotel is an exception, relatively modern and clean offering quite spacious rooms. I had a room on the 36th floor with view on the beach and Diamond head. The staff were very polite and attentive.
Location wise it’s about 3 minutes walking distance to the beach. Various restaurants and shopping centres close by” – Yun-Han C. 4/19
“Beautiful Scenery with a great price and an amazing view. Super friendly staff who will cater to your every need. Also very close to everything so tons of things to do!” – Steven D. 9/17
“Hotel staff was very nice. Lobby was simple, not extravagant at all. The pool was somewhat disappointing because there were no umbrellas by the chairs. There were very few cabanas and pool was small. Workout room was decent. The hotel is only a 3-minute walk to the beach so that was great. It was close to many restaurants.” – Rosely B. 7/17
“We decided to have a brunch at the restaurant MAC 24/7. Service was great. We had a view of the garden, so it was a nice experience. Other than the price ($20 for a waffle & egg), everything was the way it should be. Our waitress took care of us really well. The facility was clean as usual.” – Elcid Z. 7/17
