Do you or anyone on the board by chance have stayed in the Hilton Price Kuhio hotel recently? I did some research and their room looks really good. Let me know if you have any experience.

:-D

So it turned out that the first hotel we stayed in 2 weeks ago was the Prince Kuhio. I'm glad I did too. Overall the hotel is very comfortable. It's not a huge spread out resort. It's a highrise on Kuhio Ave. I think I was in an oceanfront room on the 12th flr (i know it was OF, not sure of the floor #, but it was high). The room was modern as I expected with bright whites and yellows. I did like the way they did the wall between the room and the bathroom. They inserted 2 glass panels on either side of the wall with crackled glass in them. On the inside of the bathroom were miniblinds. So you could keep them open or closed. It brightend up the room during the day. Beds were comfy. Big flatscreen hanging on the wall. Balconies were big enough for 2 chairs & a small table. More than 2 ppl wouldn't fit out there tho. The pool was on the 10th floor and wasn't huge, but big enough for the size of the hotel (very windy up there). There is 24hr restaurant & room service. The pancakes at the restaurant are the biggest I've ever seen in my life. Literally a family of 4 could eat off of one order. Overall the food was average, but a bit overpriced. Internet service was expensive. They have a small wedding gazebo and garden area right off of the main lobby. It was cute but not really private. One side was all windows into the restaurant and the other into the main lobby.

As for the location...well...that Kuhio Ave leaves a lot to be desired. The noise was not really a problem when I was at the Hilton b/c I was on a high floor (i would imagine it was worse for lower floors though), but when I moved down to the AQUA resort...ughhh! When you check into a room and one of the amenities is earplugs, that should give you a hint. Unless you're really on a budget i would avoid that area all together (and I hate saying that about any part of this island). It's a shame that Hilton is there b/c I really like it overall. We've got the contacts to pretty much assure our guests will be UP as high as we can get them there, but if you're booking on your own, just be warned. For the price, I agree with the above poster about the Princess Kauilani. The rooms there are BASIC, not nearly as nice as the Hilton PK, but the location is 100% better.

I also stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village during my stay. As expected, the place is freaking huge! I was in the Kalia tower which sets farthest back from the beach. The village overall was nice. Lots of shops, restaurants, ice cream parlor. It was cute. But like I said before it's the main place for the cruise lines as well as big conventions and groups. So it's always crowded. And it's a hike to anything down on Kalakaua Ave (Int'l Marketplace, the dinner shows, Waikiki beach etc). Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful resort with lots to do. You just have to make sure it's the right place for you and your guests.

I would suggest the Outrigger Reef on the Beach just because of its location! We actually stayed at the timeshare hotel behind it on Lewers St. & the Outrigger is the hotel that you walk through to get to the beach, it is RIGHT on the beach & just has a ton to do over there with little eating stands, etc. on the beach. We stayed there 3 years ago before the renovation so I'm sure its even better now, especially for the price. Right across the street is the new beach walk & only a few blocks away is a TON of the shopping/restaurants. The hotel itself looked really nice, they had a smaller pool before (not sure what its like with the renovation) but if you're like me, I'd rather be at the ocean not the pool!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
