The Waikiki Resort Hotel is located at 2460 Koa Avenue, at the corner of Liliʻuokalani Avenue, which makes it one of the most conveniently situated properties in Waikiki Beach. If you have a really strong arm you could throw a stone or kukui nut into the ocean from the front driveway. But before you attempt to do so, how exactly should you and your party arrive in that driveway? Does the hotel offer its own Honolulu International Airport (HNL) transportation service? Here’s your answer (from the property website’s FAQ):
The good news, is that WE DO offer dedicated Waikiki Resort Hotel airport shuttle service. You can either call 1-800-929-1219 right now to book your pickup (24-hours in advance) or read below first for more information.

Your Direct, Private, Affordable Flat Rate Shuttle Service from Honolulu Airport to the Waikiki Resort Hotel
Direct, Private, Affordable Flat Rate Airport Shuttle
When we say we offer dedicated shuttle service to the Waikiki Resort Hotel, we mean it. This is not a shared shuttle that takes many stops along the way. Nor is it like an Uber or Lyft which is a bad idea from Honolulu airport. Instead, we offer visitors such as yourself with private and direct service. We will pick you and your party up from outside of airport baggage claim and will load your luggage for you while you take your time to nestle into our spacious and sleek Sienna minivan. You’ll enjoy air-conditioned comfort as your professional driver escorts you directly from HNL to the hotel. Upon arrival we will unload your luggage for you and ensure that you get through the entryway madness (see image below) without wasting a single second in an unnecessary queue. The best part, is that you get all of this for one VERY low flat rate of just $45 for your entire party (up to four adults). That leaves you plenty of room for lie greetings, if you want to add it to your pickup package.
Skip the shared shuttle madness (yikes!)
Rent a Car AFTER You Arrive at Hotel (if you want to)
Speaking of ill-advised forms of transportation from HNL (Uber/Lyft, etc.) don’t even think about renting a car from the airport. HNL car rentals are expensive and the process to rent one is a waste of valuable time. Moreover, arriving at the Waikiki Resort Hotel prior to check-in is complicated when you have rented a vehicle from the airport. Primary parking spaces are slotted for the hotel’s on-site car rental service (First Rent-a-Car). Further, why waste the $35 (per day) for the first day of parking when you probably won’t venture outside of Waikiki until the next day at the earliest? Take our advice and save the car rental for after you’ve arrived in Waikiki Beach.
Aside from taking care of your car rental needs after you’ve arrived at the hotel (as per above) there is a lot to do if you arrive hours in advance of your 3 PM afternoon check-in time. As you can see from the following photos, the hotel boasts an expansive and comfortable lobby for those who want to take a load off in a breezy indoor/outdoor setting. The property also hosts the ILIMA restaurant in addition to a beach-themed bar. Furthermore, the hotel has an on-site activity booking center (for circle-island tours, etc.) and a convenience store to grab toiletries, snacks, and other necessities to ensure that your vacation begins with everything you need.
