Fodor's Review

For many years the home of Hawaii's governors, this white-columned mansion was built by sea captain John Dominis, whose son married Liliuokalani, the woman who became the Islands' last queen. Deposed by American-backed forces, the queen returned to the home—which is in sight of the royal palace—and lived there until her death. The nonprofit Washington Place Foundation now operates the gracious estate, which was closed for renovations in 2013 but is still a beautiful building to walk past while exploring downtown Honolulu.
