I just returned from an award stay where I had an overnight and debated on whether to use Hilton Points or just stay at an affordable place. Since the Prince Kuhio was 40K I decided to give it a try. I ended up with an ocean view room for my points and just loved the view (I guess Hilton ordered the double rainbow view when I got to my room ). Room is not big if you are traveling with more than 2 but the bathroom was very nice and modern and had a super comfortable bed. Woman who checked me in was great. My late arrival gave me 10 min in the Exec lounge and some yummeh chicken and complementary breakfast (only little gripe was sausage and not bacon) as the hot meat choice. It has a great location for restaurants and about a 2 block walk to the beach. I had a nice Diamond Head view from my balcony too. Lobby was very contemporary and comfortable. Made a Hilton Gold person very happy staying here!
