Hilton’s Grand Waikikian Resort Celebrates Opening


Hilton Grand Vacations has announced the opening of its newest Hawaii property, the all-suite Grand Waikikian. The resort will primarily accommodate owners and provide rental suites to visitors seeking residential-style accommodations. The 331-unit, all-suite Grand Waikikia by Hilton Grand Vacations Club is the company’s fifth timeshare development in Hawaii.

The 38-story Grand Waikikian resort features one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, including five floors of designated penthouses that offer a separate check-in area, concierge and lounge. Incorporated throughout each suite are a private outdoor lanai, upscale furnishings, modern full kitchen, washer and dryer, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access, and deep-soaking tub. The resort’s new 5,000-square-foot pool is scheduled for completion in January 2009. The Grand Waikikian complements the surrounding 22-acre oceanfront resort of Hilton Hawaiian Village, which has more than 90 shops and boutiques and a selection of restaurants.
