With their dimmer light switches, Shoji screens, natural rock and earthy hues, the 72 rooms at the boutique Hotel Renew create an intimate, tranquil atmosphere. The rooms are small, but will appeal to those wishing to avoid Hawaiian-style furnishings and décor. All décor at the Hotel Renew aims to ‘inspire renewal.’ The hotel offers city and ocean view rooms with options of either one or two doubles, or one king-size bed.
The hotel puts emphasis on service, helped by little touches such as complimentary chilled drinks and a cold, scented towel on arrival. The relaxation theme is continued in the Lounge Review. Here guests can enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast or evening cocktails away from the busier atmosphere of Waikiki's nightlife. The Lounge Review hosts a weekly mixer for guests to meet and share Hawaiian experiences.
The hotel also sells itself as an ideal place for weddings, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies and civil unions. Group discounts are available for such parties, with a minimum booking of ten rooms.
This is also a pet-friendly hotel. Dogs up to 20 lbs are allowed in the rooms and are welcomed with a special treat at reception. Note that extra fees apply for bringing dogs.
