To say that there are plenty of places to stay in Oahu would be a gross understatement. As you'll see from the lists included in this section, visitors to Oahu have many hotels to choose from. Most of them are located in Honolulu, specifically in the vicinity of Waikiki Beach. Hotels directly on the beach tend to be the most expensive, and rates decrease as you make your way a block or two away from the beach. Those near the central beach usually cost a bit more than those to the far east or west. A few hotels are listed as “centrally located.” These are “city” as opposed to “beach” hotels, but most are still within reasonable walking distance and certainly TheBus can get you to Waikiki.
