Honolulu is the gateway to Hawaii and one of the best places to stay if you want to see the sights, book local tours and experience contemporary Hawaiian culture. Clustered around Mamala Bay, Honolulu hotels are available for everyone's price range, from cheap hostels and guesthouses to 5-star luxury hotels looking out over the Pacific Ocean.
While most people stay in the beach area of Waikiki, hotels in Honolulu's downtown area and other nearby towns can offer a different experience on your tropical getaway. Find cheap deals for Honolulu hotels with Skyscanner Australia and read more about Honolulu districts below.
Honolulu's beachfront neighbourhood has the widest range of cheap hotels and more luxurious options that put you close to the best shopping, restaurants and sights. Waikiki Beach may be crowded, but the sunsets and views of Diamond Head are breathtaking. Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium and other popular attractions are almost on the doorstep, or you can chill out in Kapiolani Park.
Honolulu CBD is a less obvious place to stay, but you can find cheaper hotels and see a more authentic side of modern Hawaii in the heart of the state capital. Expect the quality shopping and dining you'd find in any major US city, along with historical sites such as the 19th-century Iolani Palace and Aloha Tower lighthouse, where you can take in panoramic views over Oahu.
A quieter alternative to Waikiki, this resort town west of Honolulu has a more traditional holiday atmosphere with a few big resorts and smaller hotels. Beach activities, scuba diving and a championship golf course mean there's plenty to do, as well as excellent transport connections when you want to see the big sights.
The most significant historical site in Hawaii, visiting Pearl Harbour can be a moving experience as you take a tour of the USS Arizona Memorial, preserved since the 1941 attacks, and the Battleship Missouri Memorial where the end to hostilities was signed in 1945.
Honolulu's Chinatown, next to Downtown, is one of the largest Chinatowns in the United States. Browse the lively market stalls for tropical fruits and souvenirs and visit the serene temples to see multicultural Hawaii at its best.
Hawaii has always been popular with the rich and famous, and that's still the case today. If you're curious whether you're sharing your holiday with any big names, read Skyscanner's guide to Hawaii's celebrity hangouts.

More the air company than the airport but there is nothing to do before security, no food or entertainment
Everything's in Honolulu. You can find great food, shopping, and even hikes! Great for everyone
I had been led to believe that I would not like Honolulu. It was described as busy, crowded, urban...so much so that my intention had been not to stop here at all. When we got stranded here for a couple days (a long story involving crooked craigslist fraudsters) we were a little bummed - only to discover that Honolulu is actually amazing. The beaches at Waikiki, while not secluded, are gorgeous. The restaurants are great. While we did get stuck in traffic on Friday night, otherwise we found parking reasonably easy. By the time we could go we were not sure we were quite ready. That was a great surprise.
