Say Aloha to the Top Hotels in Waikiki

Walls and floors are teal and pink and sunshine yellow, lighting in the common areas changes colour and the 135 rooms feature maps of islands, turquoise toilet seat covers and a stash of Hawaiian snacks. It’s one block back from Kalakaua Avenue and Waikiki Beach.
