    As an owner at Lagoon Tower I've stayed there numerous times. Right now I'm staying at the Grand Waikikian for the first time, giving me a chance to compare a bit. At Lagoon Tower I own two units, a 1-bedroom plus and a 2-bedroom plus. Both are ocean view (6200 pt and 8400 pt). At the Grand Waikikian I'm staying in a 2-bedroom ocean front unit (room 1701).

    Overall, I prefer Lagoon Tower, primarily because view is important to me, and it simply has better views. It's also a shorter walk to pretty much everything. The GW has three advantages - the bathrooms are way nicer than in Lagoon Tower, there's a small washer and dryer for laundry in the room, and the elevators are WAYYYY better than in the Lagoon Tower. I find the Kitchen roomier in the Lagoon Tower. My daughter says the pull-out sofa bed is definitely more comfortable here in the GW compared with the older beds in Lagoon Tower. But, at the end of the day, I prefer the largely unobstructed views from Lagoon's ocean view rooms. (The Lagoon Tower ocean front being the best of the bunch.)

    Here are some pics from our room in GW. The first is a panoramic. Note that we are on floor 17, of 39 (top four are penthouses). So, with, say, a floor 30 room there may be views OVER the other buildings. But from 17, the Rainbow Tower and Lagoon Tower (the two in the center of the first picture below) obscure a lot of the ocean view and almost entirely the view of the Lagoon.
