This slim high-rise with 538 oceanfront rooms including 57 luxury suites fronts Ala Wai Yacht Harbor at the ewa (west) edge of Waikiki. It's close to Honolulu's downtown business district, the Hawaii Convention Center, and the world-class shopping at Ala Moana Center. There's no beach here, but Ala Moana Beach Park is a 10-minute stroll along the harbor, and the hotel also offers complimentary shuttle service around Waikiki and its surrounding beaches. It's the
only resort in Waikiki with a golf course—the 27-hole Arnold Palmer–designed Hawaii Prince Golf Club course is in Ewa Beach, about a 45-minute drive from the hotel. The sleek, modern Prince looks to Asia both in its high-style decor and such pampering touches as the traditional oshiburi (chilled hand towel) for refreshment upon check-in. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbor—ideal for sunsets—make up for the lack of lanai.
