The Area

The famous Waikiki beach area has been immortalized in books and movies for many years (think Blue Hawaii with Elvis). The iconic Royal Hawaiian Hotel was established in 1927 and as more hotels and guest industries came to the area, it has become synonymous with Hawaii as a tropical paradise. Luxury hotels and shopping with world-class restaurants have attracted visitors from all over the world. As hotels began to spring up all those years ago, it wasn’t just vacationers who were drawn to them. Business travelers bound for Honolulu found themselves choosing to stay along the luxurious Waikiki coastline, thanks to the array of upscale accommodations now available. Add to that, the massive open air mall at the International Marketplace, and you find an oasis of retail, entertainment, and dining experiences sure to please everyone in your group.
