Queen Kapi‘olani Hotel completed a $35 million renovation and repositioning. At 19 stories, all 315 guest rooms and suites have been remodeled. New windows in each room capture glorious views of the Pacific Ocean, Diamond Head and adjacent Kapi‘olani Park.

Built in the mid-1960s during Waikiki's Golden Age, the Queen Kapi‘olani’s reimagining embraces its heritage with a laid-back, vintage vibe that incorporates modern enhancements to meet the needs of today's travelers.

The hotel features a large open-air lobby; an 8,000-square-foot third-floor lanai (outdoor deck) with swimming pool, restaurant and lounge; a lobby level coffee-and-wine bar; retail shops; and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

In keeping with the Queen Kapi‘olani’s community-oriented legacy, popular local artists were commissioned to create exclusive paintings that accent the lobby area.

The Queen Kapi‘olani Hotel’s guest rooms offer unparalleled views of Diamond Head as well as stunning ocean views. Transformed into comforting retreats, the rooms feature coastal color palettes, modern amenities, large new windows, and individual lanais.

The fixtures and furnishings, selected by renown local design firm Philpotts Interiors, also align with the hotel's vintage vibe.

"It’s our goal to make business a pleasure at Queen Kapi‘olani and we are thrilled to share this authentic Waikiki experience with groups and event planners,” says Jeff Perkins, general manager of the Queen Kapi‘olani Hotel.

“Our talented planners and caterers will attend to every detail of your corporate event, so you can focus on the meeting at hand – and spend more time riding those ocean waves!”
