  • Can you sit out on the balcony? What about street noise?

    If you do get a room with a balcony you can sit outside! Depending on the rooms that are assigned some are close to the street and can be noisy however being downtown waikiki it is usually louder and busy a lot of the time! Mahalo SAvannah
