The Sheraton Princess Kaiulani enjoys a great location in the middle of Waikiki, and for those who have value in mind on their Oahu vacation, the moderate rates should also be attractive. The grounds the Sheraton Princess Hotel occupies were once the site of a princess's royal estate, and portraits of Princess Kaiulani grace the walls of the attractive lobby, which links the hotel's three main buildings. Together, these buildings house 1,150 guest units, most of which are relatively unimpressive in decor, yet more than adequate when it comes to comfort and amenities. Ten suites are available, and they offer a more upscale lodging experience and a more attractive decor—hence the loftier rates.
Regardless of which room you choose at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani, standard amenities include air-conditioning, cable TV, a coffee maker, complimentary Kona Coffee, complimentary black and green tea, a mini-refrigerator for snacks and beverages, and an iron and ironing board. Lotions, soaps, and shampoos are provided in the bathrooms, as is a hair dryer. Extra amenities, such as slippers, mouthwash, toothpaste, and a toothbrush are available upon request if you need them. Should your budget allow, internet access and an in-room safe can be added for a fee. When you're not relaxing at Waikiki Beach or visiting some of the other Honolulu attractions during your stay at the Princess Kaiulani in Oahu, enjoying a meal in your comfortable room is always a welcome treat. Room service is available from 6 to 11 a.m., and from 5 to 9 p.m.
The Sheraton Princess Kaiulani boasts two on-site restaurants, and they are convenient places to enjoy a meal when you're not taking advantage of room service. While one of the restaurants here is a casual buffet-style eatery that highlights local favorites, the other is part theater and part restaurant. The latter offers a dinner show every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This show, called Creation - A Polynesian Journey, features talented actors, and the technological effects add to the magical story. Should your budget allow, the Alii Dinner Experience is the way to go. This experience includes preferred seating at the dinner show and upgraded menu choices, among other things. When you just want to grab some drinks at the Princess Kaiulani in Oahu, the hotel also features a bar. This poolside bar offers live music entertainment on a nightly basis, so you don't have to wander far from your room to enjoy some nightlife.
In addition to two good restaurants and a fun bar, the Sheraton Princess Hotel also boasts an attractive outdoor pool, a fitness center, and an activities desk, which can come in handy when you're looking for fun things to do in Honolulu. One of the major benefits of staying at the Princess Kaiulani in Oahu is the fact that you will also have the opportunity to enjoy some of the amenities at the hotel's sister properties. Families can look to take advantage of the children's program offered at the Sheraton Waikiki, for example, while those who are looking to pamper themselves can visit the spa at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. There's a lot to like about the Sheraton Princess Hotel in Waikiki, so you'll want to keep it in mind when planning your Honolulu vacation.
