Travel: Airport to Hotel

A Guide To Getting To Your Hotel

HILTON WAIKIKI PRINCE KUHIO
2500 Kuhio Ave, Honolulu, Hawaii 96815

TRAVEL TIP: FIGURE OUT HOW YOU WILL
GET TO YOUR HOTEL BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.

Honolulu Airport, like any major international airport, has a wide number of options of how to get to your hotel. At the low end, the public city bus will get you close to your hotel for $2.50 but take up to 1.5 hours (we don't recommend this, but if you are interested, go to www.TheBus.org), and at the high end, for $45 a fast cab might get you there in 35 minutes if there is no traffic in Honolulu. But given there is regularly a traffic-snarl going through Honolulu, we suggest you plan for the trip to take around 50 minutes... and that you ask your driver a lot of questions about the area. This is your first guided tour, and you will be passing places like Pearl Harbor and the Ala Moana shopping center, so sit back and RELAX... you are almost there!

If you are going to use a rental car or taxi see separate tabs for more info on those, but in summary, the Hawaii Salsa Festival suggests the following:

OPTION 1 - SHUTTLE BUS:

Use Roberts Shuttle (866-898-2519) to transfer from the airport to your hotel by private bus. Fare to Waikiki from the airport is $9 per person and $15 roundtrip. A high-end taxi could cost $35-$45. It may take awhile because they wait at the airport to fill up, and stop at many hotels, but it's still the most economical option. The shuttle stops at the airport every 20 minutes. Make your reservations online at airportwaikikishuttle.com

OPTION 2 - RELIABLE SHUTTLE:

(1-888-924-9292) is our recommended VAN transportation in Hawaii. ReliableShuttle.com price is $13 one way or $19 round trip PER PERSON ($34 one way with Lei Greeting). Sometimes you will wait for other people, but if you are lucky, you will get the van to yourself.

THIS IS THE BEST OPTION IF YOU ARE TRAVELING ALONE OR WITH JUST ONE OTHER PERSON- FOR GROUPS OF 3 OR 4, A TAXI IS BEST!

While we recommend you book in advance, they are often pretty fast if you call once you land. You can book online at ReliableShuttle.com

OPTION 3 - PRE-SCHEDULED TAXI:

Honolulu Airport Shuttle (808-275-6633) is $30 for 4 people (provided your bags fit) to any Waikiki Hotel. Make reservations before you arrive! See our other taxi page here - THIS IS OUR RECOMMENDED BUDGET OPTION FOR GROUPS OF 3 OR 4.

OPTION 4 - UNSCHEDULED TAXI/LIMO:

Taxi's should cost approximately $35-$45 for everyone that fits (a limo may be more affordable for large groups, and you can arrive in style)! See our other taxi page here
