After picking up the car at Alamo (which is actually off-site at the Honolulu Airport) we endured the typical slow evening traffic into Waikiki. Gave the car to the valet, and headed to the desk to check-in. This was my first stay since the renovations, and was looking forward to seeing what sort of room we’d receive. The app looked promising, with something called a “Penthouse Ocean” room.
Upon check-in he confirmed that was indeed a suite, and was on the newly renovated top floor of the tower wing. It was a very large room, with a huge bathroom, and an even bigger rooftop lanai:
We still had about 30 minutes of happy hour left, and went to check out the new lounge that had been added as part of the renovations. Free beer and wine and a decent selection of evening munchies – definitely a great addition to this hotel! It was getting late by this point, so we headed next door to Duke’s restaurant for some beers, burgers, and of course the delicious and famous Hula Pie:
We were exhausted by this point from the long day trekking around Molokai, and ended up crashing quite early. The view from the lanai in the morning east over Waikiki was fantastic:
