The 563-room Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club will unveil $55 million in renovations and will be rebranded as the Prince Waikiki tomorrow. The eight-month renovation project includes upgrades of the property's guest rooms and suites, which all feature ocean views, new seating areas and upgraded bathrooms.
The hotel's meeting and event spaces have all been remodeled and renamed. They include the 6,960-square-foot Pi'inaio Ballroom, a 6,960-square-foot space designed to accommodate every kind of event; the 408-square-foot Manoa Boardroom, and the 1,293 square-foot Palolo Room. Two new meeting venues, the 1,594-square-foot Makiki Room and the 358-square-foot Waihi Boardroom, were added; both offer natural lighting.
A new infinity pool and the Prince Waikiki Club lounge offers views of the ocean, while the Muliwai Deck allows for outdoor relaxation near the pool. Other enhancements include the addition of works by Hawaiian artists throughout the hotel.
A new bar at the 100 Sails Restaurant offers craft cocktails, beers and wines on tap, along with small bites. Other dining outlets include Katsumidori Sushi Tokyo and the Honolulu Coffee Company.
"We're thrilled to unveil an all-new experience that truly meets the needs and expectations of today's traveler," said the hotel's general manager Chuck Abbott. "Beyond the impressive physical transformation, we've also focused on personalizing guest services and offering a modern artful place for travelers to gather."
