This is the Halekulani’s younger, hipper sister, located across the street and run by the same management company. The lobby entrance glows blue to the beat of electronica, and the breakfast buffet is served in what used to be a Nobu dining room. The rooms aren’t as posh as the rest of the hotel, though—the floors are tile and rooms feel more utilitarian than stylish. But the location—across the street from the beach—is great. Spring for an ocean view; otherwise, you might be overlooking the parking lot.
