"This is a good budget hotel for people seeking location and value. Near Ala Moana Beach Park and Ala Moana Shopping Center."

The Equus Hotel is a recently renovated and redesigned boutique hotel conveniently located one block from the beach near the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor. Many of the 67 spacious guestrooms feature a contemporary Polo theme, and are outfitted with a stainless-steel midsize-refrigerator, coffee maker, air conditioning, free wireless internet,and a flat-screen LCD TV. Lush pillow-top beds, luxurious linens, and bath amenities

imported from Stockholm, Sweden make time spent indoors both relaxing and enjoyable.

On-site hotel amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, sundeck, whirlpool spa, private tennis court, and barbeque grills. A complimentary continental breakfast is offered to hotel guests each morning, and daily coffee and tea service is available in the hotel lobby. Guests can sample signature cocktails and meet other visitors at theweekly manager’s reception, and if the season’s right, join their fellow vacationers at a complimentary polo match at Mokuleia Polo Filed on Oahu’s beautiful North Shore.

The Equus is the ideal hotel for guests looking to do some shopping while on vacation in Hawaii. Ala Moana Center, a large open-air mall with over 300 stores and restaurants, is located less than five minutes down the street. Luxury Row and the International Marketplace are within walking distance as well, and can also be accessed via theWaikiki Trolley. Covered parking is available to hotel guests at a daily rate, allowing visitors to rent a car and explore the entire island of Oahu at their own pace. Mokuleia Polo Field is open April through August, and hosts beachside Polo Games every Sunday. Pearl Harbor, Iolani Palace, Diamond Head State Park, and Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific are all within 20 minutes of Waikiki, and the Honolulu International airport is just 9 miles from the hotel.
