Fodor's Expert Review Waikiki Parc

2233 Helumoa Rd., Honolulu, Hawaii, 96815, USA

In contrast to the stately vintage-Hawaiian elegance of her sister hotel, the Halekulani, the Waikiki Parc makes a contemporary statement, offering the same attention to detail in service and architectural design but lacking the beachfront location and higher prices. The guest rooms in this high-rise complex have modern minimalist furnishings but give a nod to the tropics by keeping plantation-style shutters that open out to the lanai. The heated pool and sundeck are eight floors up, affording a bit more privacy and peace for sunbathers, and guests can take advantage of the spa at the Halekulani across the street. Every Friday in the lobby, the manager hosts a sunset mixer, featuring vino and light pupu. The hotel is a proud patron of the arts, and your key card allows complimentary admission to numerous museums in Honolulu. The hotel offers a variety of activitites—from yoga and meditation to tai chi—for its guests.
