Feedback Rating: Excellent.
Perfect for us. The room was spacious and well appointed. The service was first class. The location was ideal. Most of our luggage was able to be stored whilst we toured National Parks in Utah. We stayed for a total of 9 nights. Fine food. Daily provision of snacks, tea and coffee, and fruit was appreciated greatly.
I found the Army & Navy Club extremely comfortable and well located with friendly and efficient staff. If dinner is required on a Tuesday evening, it is best to make a reservation as the Club is very busy as a large help yourself buffet is offered, which is excellent and very popular with the local membership. I would highly recommend the Army and Navy Club to any RACV member wishing to find accommodation in Washington DC.

It has a lovely old world, downtown-LA atmosphere. It is primarily a club (and has a very charming 'club' feel, especially in the bar and restaurant areas). My hotel room was large and comfortable, and the breakfast room was lovely. The fitness centre facilities are fantastic.The pool and running track are a must-see. Downtown LA is in the midst of becoming quite gentrified. Still some sketchy areas to be aware of, but lots of great spots to eat and wander about close by. There is a train station quite close by, but most people get around LA now with Uber.
My wife and I recently took advantage of our reciprocal arrangement with the Marines Memorial Club in San Francisco. It is a wonderful club with a very welcoming culture. As the name suggests, it has a strong military decor which provides a fascinating insight to the history of the Marines over the last 100 years. This includes a library and numerous displays throughout the club highlighting significant events in the history of the Marines. The Leatherneck Steakhouse Restaurant on the 12th floor has a true club ambience. The staff are friendly and the menu is simple and very good. The tariff includes a two hour happy hour every afternoon from 4 until 6 and a full menu breakfast. The club is centrally located, only a block from Union Square.We highly recommend the Club to anyone visiting San Francisco

This is a small club located at the Southern end of Honolulu. Access either by walking or you can catch the bus (check the timetable first). We had dinner on the terrace looking North along the beach towards Honolulu. The view was beautiful. The food was reasonable, good quality pub food and the service was okay. Prices are quite steep due to AUD and beach side location, but it was worthwhile visiting.
Recently visited the Canoe Club for the second time. This is a casual beachside club at the Diamond Head end of Waikiki in a great location. The facilities include a semi private beach with a number of beachside eating/drinking options. The club provides shower and locker facilities (at a small fee) and access to a well equipped gym. As a sporting club there are beach volley ball courts and beachside equipment for hire. Food is bistro standard but the location is outstanding especially in the evening when the view from the Dining Terrace is back down the shoreline to the bright lights of the main Waikiki Beach hotels. The Canoe Club charges an administrative fee for the provision of a temporary membership card but this provides full membership privileges including the right to sign in guests. No cash is used during visits and all charges are booked to the members card and invoiced later with a 20% markup to cover tips.
