  • Worn out and needs a facelift. somehow the state needs to get funding. This is a historical site with a lot of local memories. Can be one of the TOP attractions when completed.  more »
  • The grounds are very nice and large. The façade is classic and very cool. Problem is it's deteriorating and in need of repair. The locked gates keep visitors out which is sad to see. It's surprising t...  more »

  • so sad to see current condition hope the state returns it to better condition it deserves to be in
  • Literally boarded off & ringed with rusty barded wire and graffiti, you may only peek in through the chain link fence to see what was once a historical gathering place of immense beauty. It's so disgraceful that the city of Oahu is neglecting a war memorial and idly standing by as it crumbles back into the sea.
  • Any reviewer who would demand this be torn down may not be aware that this is a war memorial. The memory of those who gave their lives in the cause of WWI cannot be bulldozed. There are both moral and legal issues at work here. Restoration is the only honorable course. In addition, there is no beach without the War Memorial. The memorial has created the beach. It is all too easy for people to forget where they came from, and take for granted things like liberty, when others paid the ultimate cost for it. Just like a beach that came into being in the shelter of the War Memorial. Never forget.
  • Silly Hawaii wasting millions of tax payers dollars on a restoration that was never finished and left to decay. Most of Waikiki has been torn down to provide more shopping for tourists. No appreciation for beautiful architecture or the history. Incredible art deco theaters and other landmarks of Hawaii's heyday are gone forever.
  • Significant memorial of the great war. Pictures available online of the 100m pool in its glory days are impressive. Apparently no profit in maintaining it anymore. No WW1 vets left. Too bad.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
