Happy 90th Birthday to the Royal Hawaiian, to a true classic beauty!
The iconic Waikiki luxury resort turns 90 this year, and she is still a stand-out in the crowd.
Be Treated Like A Star
It’s big enough, 10 acres, to roam gardens, pools, bars and lounges.
I love grand, old hotels that have a long, rich history. I love roaming the corridors that were once roamed by fictional and historic people. The Royal Hawaiian has been visited by Amelia Earhart, Duke Kahanamoku, Frank Sinatra, the cast of the new Hawaii Five-O, and more recently Don Draper classed it up there.
In 2008, much of The Royal Hawaiian’s common areas and rooms were restored to their early 20th century look. Keep in mind, as with all classic hotels, the room sizes and bathrooms weren’t huge. It’s authentic though. The Royal Hawaiian is currently part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury Collection.
