You'll be sitting on top of the world at this spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath Penthouse with open living room and fully-equipped kitchen.
The jaw-dropping 270-degree view includes Diamond Head, sweeping ocean view, Ala Wai Canal, Ala Wai golf course, Ft DeRussy park, the beautiful Koolau Mountain Range, sunrises AND sunsets!
The penthouse is great for families and friends; less expensive than a hotel, full kitchen and at over 1000 square feet (large by Waikiki standards) the penthouse will comfortably sleep 6. The ocean-side master bedroom has a king bed, the Diamond Head-side master bedroom has two full beds and the living room has a new high quality Queen sofa bed. In addition, we also have a crib available for no charge. The bedrooms, living/dining room and kitchen all have spectacular views. Every Friday night you can watch the fireworks launched from the nearby Hilton Hawaiian Village and on special occasions you'll see a bigger show on Waikiki Beach.
You'll have a fully equipped kitchen with full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, blender, coffee pot and grinder, pots and pans, silverware and just about anything else you need. To top it off the kitchen has a panoramic ocean view!
One bathroom features a Japanese-style deep bath tub (furo) with shower. The second bathroom has a walk-in shower. You'll also have your own washer and dryer in the penthouse.
A supply cabinet contains beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels and assorted beach items.
You'll enjoy the huge recreation deck with large swimming pool, hot tub, barbecue grills, picnic tables and lounge chairs. There are no resort fees to use these facilities. Also onsite is a new fitness center which is ALMOST free: it only cost $5 for your entire stay (not per day).
There is a large flat-screen TV with cable service. The free high-speed WIFI is your own private network, not shared with other units and is powerful enough for the whole family to share their vacation experience.
The Hawaii Convention Center is within walking distance as are the Hilton Hawaiian Village and other venues where conventions are held. If you must do business while in Waikiki there is a desk in one of the bedrooms and also a nook in the dining area.
The Hawaiian Monarch is a mixture of hotel-owned and privately-owned units. Our penthouse is privately owned, managed and maintained; is not part of the Hawaiian Monarch hotel pool. There are only 3 other penthouses on the same floor.
Parking is available in the onsite parking garage. The garage is privately owned and the rate at the time of this writing is $25/day, typical for Waikiki, but with full in and out privileges. Parking is not included in the rent as the majority of our guests do not rent a car. The penthouse has a Walk Score of 92 (out of 100). Some guests rent a car for a day of exploring from one of the nearby car rental companies.
Within walking distance are a great number of restaurants, shopping including Ala Moana Shopping Center, resorts, grocery and convenience stores, music venues, sports bar, post office, green parks, Waikiki Beach Walk and of course Waikiki Beach itself!
Waikiki and the surrounding area have a gazillion things to do. Of course there is the world's most famous beach. Many water sports are available including surfing, paddle boarding, boogie boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, parasailing and more. There is shopping for everything from souvenir trinkets to high end luxury stores and everything in between.
Hear world-class music at many resorts, Blue Note Jazz Club, the Waikiki Shell, the Blaisdell Arena and local musicians playing rock, jazz, and of course, Hawaiian.
Honolulu has an extensive public bus system and there is a bus stop across the street from the penthouse. Buses reach many areas all over the island including major destinations such as Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, Chinatown, Honolulu Airport, Honolulu Zoo, The Aquarium and others.
In addition to all these visitor attractions there is something else that makes it worth coming to Hawaii: the Hawaiian culture. Aloha is a real thing, not just a buzz word. You'll know it when you experience it. We encourage you to learn about the culture and history via the many museums and to make personal connections with Hawaiian people.
Our local weather person likes to say that we have 'the best weather on the planet'. Is it cold where you are? Come to Waikiki and warm up! Are you suffering from unbearable heat and humidity? Come to Waikiki and cool off! Our average daily temperature is in the low 80s F/ 27 C all year.
