These two towers look like they’re from The Jetsons, especially with the glass-walled elevators zipping up and down the exterior. The hotel completed an extensive remodel in 2017; installing more inviting restaurants and an infinity pool; most arresting of the updates are the 800 pieces of shimmering copper, reminiscent of fish scales, suspended from the ceiling of the hotel lobby. The rooms were also updated, but you’ll probably spend most of your time looking outward; every room, even on the lower floors, boasts a yacht harbor view. This hotel is on the quiet side of Waikiki. There’s no beach in front, but it’s about a 10-minute walk to Ala Moana Beach Park, a more local and less-busy beach than Waikiki. Katsumidori Sushi restaurant, part of the remodel, offers quality sushi at reasonable prices.
