The 528-room Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu recently completed a $70 million renovation of its Royal Beach Tower rooms. The accommodations now feature contemporary Hawaiian furnishings, lounge chairs with ottomans, Indonesian tables carved from local trees and other Asia Pacific-inspired decor. Known as the Pink Palace of the Pacific, the property includes more than 66,000 square feet of outdoor oceanfront meeting space in addition to 12,000 square feet of indoor facilities.
