Our take on The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, Waikiki

It's not hard to figure out how The Royal Hawaiian got the nickname the, "Pink Palace of the Pacific": the hotel's bright pink exterior has been a landmark along the Waikiki beachfront since it opened in 1927. This five-star Honolulu hotel recently reopened after extensive, multi-million dollar renovations. While its bright exterior hasn't changed, the interior has become decidedly less pink. The goal of the big change was to return the hotel to its heyday as the luxury hotel in Honolulu, when it attracted celebrities like the Beatles, Marilyn Monroe and even the Rockefellers. All 529 of the hotel's guest rooms are now modern, elegant retreats featuring cozy bedding, contemporary decor and flatscreen TVs. Every Monday night, The Royal Hawaiian luau is one of Waikiki's largest and most popular, and isn't to be missed. Stylish, comfortable and luxurious, the Royal Hawaiian is a royal treat in Honolulu.
