Expert Review

The Outrigger lives up to its namesake immediately as you pull up out front: A massive outrigger canoe hangs from the ceiling of the open-air pagoda that fronts the lobby. One of the most Hawaiian-feeling of all the Waikiki hotels, the hotel has a giant lobby area and shopping arcade that’s overflowing with dark wood and Hawaiian decor, including an impressive wall of paintings behind the reception desk. Most of the 639 large, renovated rooms have balconies with ocean or city views, and all offer free phone calls to the mainland (no hidden resort fees here!). After a day at the beach, Outrigger has dining covered. The Kani Ka Pila Grille offers a casual bar scene and a large, varied menu with live music from some of Hawaii’s top entertainers. The Shore Bird Restaurant and Beach Bar remains one of the best places to chill out on Waikiki and let’s diners try out their grill master skills at the DIY grill station. If you’re looking for finer dining, the Ocean House Restaurant serves up the freshest island seafood. For romance, the hotel invites couples to renew their vows in a free ceremony on the beach every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday morning. Guests also get a great view of the weekly Friday night fireworks display over Waikiki from the Outrigger Reef’s beach.
