Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“Waikiki’s original luxury hotel, this pink Spanish-Moorish-style landmark is loaded with vintage opulence, which is kept relevant by continuous subtle upgrades.”

New York Times review:

“Shirley Temple, Amelia Earhart, the Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, the Rockefellers, Fords and du Ponts — all stayed here. Legend has it that the Shirley Temple cocktail (ginger ale and grenadine) was invented there in honor of the child star.”

Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Fodors review:

“There’s nothing like the legendary Pink Palace of the Pacific, and the reopening of the renovated Mailani Tower has injected new life into the iconic hotel set on 14 acres of prime Waikiki Beach.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Oahu, Hawaii.

Frommers review:

“Every time I step into the Royal Hawaiian, it still takes my breath away. I love its vibrant exoticism—the Spanish-Moorish architecture manifested in graceful stucco arches, the patterned floor tiles, the ornate lamps.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Hawaii.
