“We live on Maui and travel to Honolulu for a change of pace. Halekulani and it’s staff blends the old style Hawaiian aloha spirit while its location is near the heart of a more cosmopolitan experience expected in a big city. Beautiful views include Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. Fine food, service and accommodations meet the standards of the most critical of experienced travelers. ”
