Hawaii may have some of the best weather and beaches in the world, but let’s face the facts: Many visitors come to Hawaii to check out the amazing scenery they’ve seen when watching Hawaii Five-O!
If you’re a fan of the show, you’ve no doubt noticed that Oahu is an important “cast member,” and Waikiki typically has a “starring role.” So, you may recognize one of the most popular on-location backdrops in Waikiki, a string of hotels managed by Starwood Hotels and Resorts in Waikiki: the “pink” Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort; the Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort and Spa; and the Sheraton Waikiki.
In deference to its role as part of the popular show, Starwood Hotels and Resorts has announced they’ve, once again, negotiated an agreement to serve as official production partner for Hawaii Five-0 in Season 6. Starwood and CBS also partnered throughout the Emmy-nominated crime drama’s Season 5 in 2014 and 2015.
Filming for Hawaii Five-0 has already taken place at the Starwood Waikiki hotel properties owned by Kyo-ya and managed by Starwood. These three oceanfront resorts were prominently featured in various episodes last season and are expected to be featured again throughout Season 6.
This season’s first appearance by a Starwood property will be Sheraton Waikiki in the series’ fourth episode, which will be broadcast mid-October 2015. Subsequent episodes will also feature Moana Surfrider and The Royal Hawaiian.
“Our Starwood Waikiki team is proud to partner with the Hawaii Five-0 television series,” said Kelly Sanders, area managing director, Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Waikiki. “The original classic series that aired from 1968 to 1980 played an integral role in showcasing Hawaii to the world. Now six seasons strong, the contemporary Hawaii Five-0 series is continuing that tradition of bringing tremendous exposure to Hawaii by featuring the Islands’ natural beauty and iconic landmarks, like The Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider.”
To celebrate this partnership, Starwood Waikiki, including Sheraton Princess Kaiulani, will be offering a “Hawaii Five-0 Stay and Play” package at its four Waikiki properties, as well as special events and promotions that celebrate the popularity of this series. Package details include:
