For those who have been to Honolulu Sheraton and Hilton Rainbow Waikiki

Which between these two is better in Honolulu, the Sheraton Wakiki or Hilton Rainbow Tower? Thanks for comparing and contrasting the two as you say which is better.

The Sheraton is a huge mega tower while the Rainbow Tower is part of the overall mega complex. Do you have status with either spg or HHonors? All things being equal, I'd go with the Rainbow tower and hope for an ocean view or at least one facing the Friday night fireworks.

Would second... though both felt pretty similar to me, the Hilton had a slight edge with amenities and overall feel of the place.

Hilton is more of a resort but you will be pretty isolated and limited to overpriced (and imo crappy) hotel food - there isnt much within walking distance.
Sheraton is much more central with lots of food and things to do nearby but it's a city hotel on the beach.
Sheraton rooms are smaller but more of them face the water.
i would suggest sheraton to take advantage of waikiki, if you want a resort go to another island instead of going to hilton
