Shoreline Hotel Waikiki Review: Joie de Vivre Hotels' second property in Hawaii is conveniently located in the heart of Waikiki. The 1970s-inspired décor is airy and light, and artwork and flowers provide bright bursts of color. There are 135 guest rooms, all with complimentary Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, 27- to 42-inch flat-screen HD televisions, central air-conditioning and private balconies. Some rooms also have mini-refrigerators and microwaves. The entire hotel is non-smoking. Complimentary coffee, tea and water are available all day in the lobby. The business center is open 24 hours, offering a printer as well as fax and copy services for a charge. Although there is no restaurant on the premises, myriad popular restaurants and clubs surround the hotel. Also at hand are Waikiki Beach and Kalakaua Avenue, one of Honolulu's preeminent shopping and dining areas. America's only royal palace, 'Iolani Palace, is within walking distance. For those who want to enjoy Hawaii's natural beauty, there are plenty of scenic parks and beaches to explore nearby.
