The Royal Hawaiian
Thanks to its palace-esque grandeur and signature bright pink color, the Royal Hawaiian is a Waikiki landmark. When the hotel was built in 1927, it was considered to be one of the most luxurious spots in Hawaii, and that tradition has continued throughout the years in the 528 contemporary rooms and suites with tropical decor.
The resort is situated in the heart of Waikiki, less than nine miles from Honolulu International Airport, and is within walking distance to many area attractions, shopping, and dining options. Amenities include cultural activities, a heated outdoor pool with cabanas for rent, a saltwater pool, private beach area, day spa, two upscale restaurants, and a seaside bar.
