Fodor's Review

Hawaii's oldest hotel—and the only one in Volcanoes National Park—is committed to sustainable practices and promoting local Hawaiian culture and history through its locally sourced restaurants, artisan-crafted decor, and eco-focused guest programs. First built in 1846, Volcano House overlooks the Halemaumau Crater at the summit of Kilauea, boasting what's considered Hawaii's most unique hotel location. Guest rooms have simple, rustic-chic decor, rain forest or volcano views, and free Wi-Fi. The main lodge also houses the panoramic The Rim restaurant and adjacent Uncle George's Lounge. The main attraction, though, is exploring the rain forests, lavascapes, and diverse ecosystems of the park, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere Reserve.
