Expert Review

Built in 1927 in quasi-Moorish style and wrapped in acres of lush landscaping, this iconic hotel still sits like an elaborate garden hat amid the high-rises of Waikiki. A top-to-bottom makeover in 2008 restored the glamour quotient to the "Pink Palace of the Pacific" while adding a full service Abhasa Spa and witty touches like pink-and-silver wallpaper. Panoramic views of Diamond Head and the sparkling Pacific Ocean can be enjoyed from each of the 528 rooms and suites, and private beachfront cabanas.
