Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort is a 23-minute drive from Honolulu Airport.
As one of the largest hotel resorts in Hawaii, the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort is, like the name suggests, akin to a small village. Located on 22 acres at the widest stretch of scenic Waikiki Beach, you might find yourself torn between taking a surfing lesson or splashing around one of the five pools on the property.
Rooms are in one of five towers, each having a slightly different contemporary tropical theme. To be closest to the beachfront action, stay in the Rainbow Tower. Those who prefer concierge service might prefer the higher-end Ali’I Tower.
If you tire of the hotel’s 20 restaurants, go to nearby Lewers Street and browse the galleries and boutiques of the Waikiki Beach Walk. Reserve your seat at Hawaiian fusion cuisine hot spot Roy’s, voted one of the best restaurants in all of Oahu by Honolulu Magazine.
