Best Rooms: The Diamond Head Ocean Front rooms have the best views in the hotel. If you don't want to spend extra money on a Ocean Front or Ocean View room but still would like a view, request a room that is facing the garden courtyard.

Best Rooms: To get the best ocean view, book a Tower Deluxe Ocean View room and request to be put on the Diamond Head side.
Best Rooms: Deluxe Ocean View rooms in the Princess Wing offer the best views of the ocean, albeit partial views. These rooms also tend to be quieter than other rooms throughout the hotel, as they face away from the International Marketplace as well as the street. For ocean views in the Ainahau Wing, request a room on the Diamond Head side, on or above floor 19. That's because another hotel obstructs the view on the lower floors.
Best Rooms: For the best view, request a room facing the pool and courtyard on any floor.
