Princess Ocean View rooms of Sheraton Princess Kaiulani are located at the upper floors of the Princess Wing, the same building in which the hotel lobby is also located.
With the balconies facing straight towards the Kalakaua Street and Waikiki beach, you get a very good view of the Waikiki ocean beyond the Moana Surfrider hotel.

[Review] Sheraton Princess Kaiulani – Tower Ocean View
The picture above shows you how the room looks like right now, after the recent update on the wallpaper and the carpet.
The next few pictures were taken before the update, so just use them as a reference for the size of the room, how the furnitures look, etc.
The wooden table and chest of drawers are still there after the wallpaper update.
There are a table and a pair of chairs on the balcony. Such a nice set-up for a little breakfast.
You can get some smoothies, sandwiches and snacks at the coffee shop called “Kai Fresh” by the swimming pool, which was very convenient.
View (10th floor)
As the Princess Ocean View rooms are located on the upper floors of the Princess Wing, you can see the beautiful ocean behind the Moana Surfrider.
The Duke Kahanamoku Statue stands around the open part in the picture above, between Grand Hyatt on the left and the gray building in the middle.
It is the closest entry to the Waikiki beach, and is only a 2-minute walk from the hotel lobby.
I honestly feel that these pictures don’t do the justice though. I intentionally took pictures of the surrounding hotel buildings to show the views of all angles, but when I was looking at the ocean, they didn’t bother me.
I guess it’s the difference between how the camera works and how human vision works.
You can see the pool and the performance stage from the balcony.
At night, you can hear the music of Hawaiian Music & Hula Show by the pool up close.
You can enjoy it on the balcony, and it feels very comforting.
Sunrise and Sunset
You will not have a direct view of the sun setting over the horizon. This picture above was taken in mid-November, and the sunset is blocked by Moana Surfrider’s Tower Wing.
Since the direction of the sun moves further to the right towards the summer due to the earth’s tilt, this, taken in November, would be the closest it gets to a direct view of the sunset.
You might have a chance if you go in December and stay in a room that is farther to the left, but the possibility is still low.
Anyways, the dusk is almost always more beautiful than the sunset in my opinion. The sea and clouds looked so magical.
Sunrise will not be visible directly from the Princess Ocean View either, given the rooms are facing South-West.
A shower room with bathtub. Be careful not to hit stuff on the small sink and drop it into the toilet bowl.
Ocean View with Great Access
The combination of great access and good ocean view while being affordable is what makes this hotel one of my favorites in Waikiki.
While the floor plan and furnitures are simple rather than fancy, located on the top floors of the Princess Wing tower, Princess Ocean View rooms offer beautiful views of the ocean and the Moana Surfrider hotel.
The hotel is located in the heart of Waikiki, making it easy to access all parts of the town, and the beach is just about a 2-minute walk away.
