Or take a boat over to Molokai to try out a different disease.

I heard one of the infected hotel guests exclaim

Kaulana Na Kula Kamehameha
I ka uka o Kapalama
He makana mai ke ali`i
Mau ke aloha no Pauahi

The waves at Waikiki Beach are hardly gentle. Most of the time they'll knock you on your butt. Really fun!
It's especially fun to watch the crash on the concrete wall behind the Sheraton. The water will go up 30-40 feet sometime.

Can't believe they shut down the kitchen. The Sheraton and the Royal Hawaiian share an underground kitchen. I got a tour once. It's big - think mashed potato bowls four feet tall and ovens that can handle a hundred chickens at once.

Finally, all the joy of violently expelling liquid from every hole without the expense of a cruise...

The Royal? Huh. I expected the Outrigger.

When you're on the can and you have to puke do whatever you can to avoid puking in the bathtub. It's just awful cleaning that mess, especially when you're sick.

Depends on summer or winter. Winter is calm on south side, summer has waves. Still, by Hawaii standards the waves at Waikiki are gentle - rarely do they get over 5 feet even in summer while the North Shore gets 30-40 feet in winter, with 15 feet being common.

If you can't handle 2 or 3 foot waves you should either go to the calm part of the island (north shore in summer) or go vacation on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Hawaii is in the middle of the Pacific and the ocean is the most powerful thing on this planet. Don't jump in the deep end if you can't handle a kiddie pool. Lots of people seem to think the ocean is like a big pool or lake - no, it's not.

Beautiful old Honolulu hotel. I usually stay up on the North Shore. If you are in Waikiki on a Sunday. Duke's at the Outrigger is THE place to be.  Henry Kapono in the afternoon until sunset is magic. A delicious Mai Tai makes the magic even stronger.



Escape for a few minutes...

The Royal Hawaiian may be my favorite hotel on earth. I've been lucky enough to stay there a couple of times, including on my honeymoon. They usually always upgrade me to an oceanfront suite, which is always nice.

And the view from the rooms can't be beat:

Was at the Hilton 2 weeks ago. Similar to Paris Hilton s sex tape. You expect a lot but end up dissapointed.

My poor friend had a horrible experience. Without going into the details, ill list a few key statements that will help everyone understand the situation.

Caused by poor hygiene either customer, wait staff or cooks, usually not the cooks. Can also get it from bird poop, seagulls etc are notorious for being the cause.

Only way to really get rid of it is a full sterilization of every square inch of the place. This is the one that sticks around on cruise ships because they don't go full nuclear on it, they pull some half assed clean up and what do you know 3 weeks later everyone has the squats again.

The Halekulani is much nicer.

Which Hilton? There used to be several before they sold the Kahala to the Chinese, and then there was Turtle Bay Hilton (dunno if they sold that one) and also the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

And don't ever, ever stand in the water with your back to the waves.

Had oceanfront rooms at the Marriott directly across Waikiki several times.  Also very nice.

Sandy Beach was awesome for the shore breaking waves. Waimea Bay if you feel like staring death in the face.

Hawaiian Village. The place was nice but they screwed up the rooms, had no room service (after flying there we wanted to grab something to eat but didn't want to leave the room) and no late checkout (our plane left at 7pm and checkout was 11)Wifey and I realized two things in the tripWe don't like bus toursDon't travel with family

I tend to prefer any other beach on any of the other islands to Waikiki. It's all personal opinion and preference, but if I'm flying all the way out there, why do I want to be anywhere near crowds and a city?  Hideaways on Kauai. That's where it's at. If I want something a little more populated for the sake of restaurant and store variety, I'll stay in south Kihei on Maui.

When Mrs. Clem and I travel we say  piss on hotels, bedbugs and scummy bathrooms and refuse to lay down on the same germ and sperm saturated mattresses and carpets so many before us have despoiled.. no thank you. That's why ..

ReverendJynxed: The Halekulani is much nicer.

Ehhhh, no. I'd have to fully disagree with you there. It's a nice hotel, for sure, but if you actually like the beach, I'm not a fan of a hotel that is on top of a bulkhead.

The Halekulani "beach:"

The beach at the Royal Hawaiian:

Plus the fact that you can have a private beach umbrella for the day, with waiter service - which is badass.
