The Royal Hawaiian
Of all Hawaii hotels, only The Pink Palace of the Pacific has remained an icon of luxury and romance for over 75 years. A Waikiki landmark recognized around the world, The Royal Hawaiian Hotel is the ultimate vacation destination for honeymooners, families, and anyone seeking elegance from a bygone era. Each of the 528 rooms and suites are unique unto themselves, perfectly wedding modern comfort and old world luxury. In the Royal Tower, each room comes with an intimate lanai for a private vantage point on the ocean. In the Historic Building, elegant furnishings include four-poster beds and Queen Anne-style writing desks. And for unsurpassed sophistication, the Prestige Suites offer spacious accommodation and a host of select amenities. For the chefs of The Royal Hawaiian, preparation and presentation demand equal attention. Every meal is an occasion to remember. The Surf Room, the fine dining restaurant, is a showcase of continental classics and contemporary Hawaiian cuisines that draw inspiration from the ocean's daily bounty and locally grown ingredients. For casual dining, the breezy Beach Club Cafe features light menus of American fare and simple island cuisine. For a truly extraordinary Hawaiian meal, don't miss the legendary oceanfront luau. And for tropical drinks, live music, and ocean views, the Mai Tai Bar is a must.

On February 1, 1927, The Royal Hawaiian opened as the first luxury property in Waikiki, ushering in a new era of resort travel to the Hawaiian Islands. Set on 14 acres of the fabled Waikiki beachfront on Oahu's south shore, the resort quickly gained a reputation as a favorite vacation spot for international royalty. During World War II, The Royal Hawaiian was leased exclusively to the U.S. Navy, but re-opened in 1947 after a large-scale renovation. The Royal Hawaiian quickly regained its standing as an exclusive retreat for Hollywood's brightest stars, heads of state, and the well-heeled travelers. The Royal Hawaiian has since renovated and rebranded as A Luxury Collection property, taking "The Pink Palace" a step beyond traditional luxury resort expectations. In 1969 the beautiful high-rise beachfront building was added, creating a hotel within a hotel concept. The new addition is known today as Mailani Tower, featuring all oceanfront rooms with lanais. Separated from the Historic Building by a regal promenade, Mailani Tower also features an exclusive guest lounge with concierge service, continental breakfast with mimosas and evening appetizers with beer/wine daily, reading materials, and other features.
