Aston at the Executive Centre Hotel. Downtown Honolulu's only hotel is an all-suites high-rise in the center of the business district, within walking distance of the historic Capitol District, museums and Honolulu's Chinatown and a 10-minute drive from Honolulu International Airport. It's also three blocks from Aloha Tower Marketplace and the cruise-ship terminal at Pier 10. Accommodations occupy the top 10 floors of the 40-story glass tower, and have panoramic
views of downtown Honolulu and Honolulu Harbor. Many hotels offer their guests free continental breakfast each morning, but here it's served in the top-floor Executive Club with views so mesmerizing, you might linger over your morning latte. The slew of amenities is a boon to those staying for several days or longer. Each spacious suite has a separate living area, three phones, deep whirlpool tubs, and kitchenette stocked with cold beverages. Some units have washer-dryers. It is also within walking distance to the newly revitalized Chinatown area that's burgeoning with new restaurants, bars and art galleries.
