The Height of Delight
By Maria K. Regan
On the 40th floor, Aston Waikiki Beach Tower’s Presidential Suites offer memorable views, room to relax and attentive service.
For visitors seeking sweeping ocean vistas, spacious accommodations and personalized service, Aston Waikiki Beach Tower has answers.
First things first: the view. From the balcony of a Presidential Suite, the ocean seems to stretch even beyond the horizon. Turquoise waters near shore shift to deep blue with distance. From an almost-aerial perspective, you can watch surfers and sea turtles cruise the reef-dotted waters fringed by Waikiki Beach. On your left, Diamond Head sits majestically overlooking it all.
The breath taking ocean view can be enjoyed inside each suite as well, from both the master bedroom and the open-concept kitchen, living and dining area. The three Presidential suites offer an average 1,241 square feet of living space, including two bedrooms (one master with a king bed and one guest room with two twin beds); two full bathrooms; a full kitchen and a living and dining area. With a pull-out sofa, each suite sleeps six.

Other Presidential Suite amenities include a washer and dryer; wired and wireless Internet; a Bose Wave radio and three televisions (one in in each bedroom and one in the living area). The suites have individual owners, so fit and finish vary slightly but typically include granite countertops, marble tub surrounds and cherry or maple cabinetry.
Furnishings are elegant with tropical touches. Nightly rates range from $1,399 to $1,679.
As property manager, Aston brings a high level of personal service designed to ensure that guests feel at home. Several valets and members of the guest-services team have been at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower for 20 years or more, greeting returning guests by name and ensuring they have everything they need to enjoy their stay. Aston guest services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and include daily cleaning and nightly turn down. Both grocery delivery and room service are available. A small swimming pool and jetted spa are located on the fourth floor.
The Aston Waikiki Beach Tower is ideally situated on Kalakaua Avenue across the street from Kuhio Beach Park, which offers protected swimming courtesy of its sea walls. On summer evenings, the park hosts live hula performances and outdoor movies. Staying at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower also puts you just steps from the area’s best shopping and dining. Of course, with views like these you may just want to dine in.
