Waikiki gets a new place: the Hyatt Place. It’s the first Hyatt Place in the islands and offers spacious rooms and beautiful ocean views.

Hyatt Place Waikīkī Beach will be the first property of the Hyatt Place brand to be introduced to the Hawai‘i market. It’s located at the quieter end of Waikīkī, closer to Diamond Head, and only two blocks from the ocean. This is the neighborhood I lived in when I first moved here. I did not mind being away from the beach (nor paying for it) because of the amazing view I had from my room, which will be the same view guests will have here. In fact, the remodel included additional cutout windows in the rooms facing the ocean, so visitors can always check the surf. Diamond Head and City views are also available.
