We recently pcsd (moved) from Hawaii to our dream home in Virginia and although I was ready to move I was looking forward to spending our last few weeks in Waikiki soaking up the sun.
TLA allowed us to book our rooms at the Embassy Suites Waikiki Beach Walk, which I found kind of ironic and cool considering we stayed at the Embassy Suites O’Hare before we left for Hawaii 3 years ago.
The location of the Embassy Suites Waikiki is supreme. You’re only one block away from Waikiki beach, 2 blocks away from the strip and nightlife entertainment and perfectly positioned right in the center of restaurants and entertainment. We simply could not ask for a better location.
Our suite was very clean, our view couldn’t have been better we were positioned across the street from the Hilton and every Friday they have a fireworks show that we were able to enjoy, Vayda and Zan loved it but Zion ain’t into all that.
We were also 2 floors up from the pool and we spent a lot of time there. The hospitality was great, each person we came in contact with from the bellman to the maid service were exceptionally nice and filled with the Aloha spirit. Breakfast is complimentary at the Embassy Suites and something that also we looked forward to because of the great experiences we’ve had on the mainland.
Breakfast is served buffet style and you can dine indoor or out on the lanai, they serve a nice variety and this is also an area where the Japanese tourists menu reigns supreme. There was plenty to enjoy, Brown Sugar and I ate from the omelet bar every day. Breakfast is served from 6:30 am to 10 am so try to get there as early as you can because the food fresher and the lines aren’t as long, especially if you want an omelet. Also make sure you tip the omelet guys, they work hard and do it with a smile. One thing I really appreciate is that everyday there’s something different being served. While we were there breakfast consisted of pancakes one day, waffles another and hash browns after that, all this along with the regular choices of bacon, sausage, eggs, fruit etc.
One thing that the Embassy is known for is its manager’s reception. The managers reception is every day from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The reception includes FREE DRINKS (I don’t even drink but this still amazes me), a really amazing live band and refreshments. The atmosphere is family friendly, and really laid back as is everything else in Hawaii. If you ever visit the island of Oahu you should definitely check out the Embassy Suites Waikiki or one of my other favorite hotels in Hawaii, you’re bound to love one of them.
