The 495-room OHANA Waikiki Beachcomber is in the final phases of a total room renovation at the hotel. By December, the $12 million renovation project will be limited to the two bottom floors of the hotel, which will be closed off to guests.
"While our rooms renovation program is slated for completion by February 2008, come December we'll have progressed to the point where all guests checking into the hotel will find themselves in a newly renovated guest room," said Dean Nakasone, general manager of OHANA Waikiki Beachcomber. Room updates include new dark alder and cherry hardwood furnishings, flat-screen televisions, and new carpeting, wallpaper, lighting, artwork, bed frames, headboards, and enhanced custom-made bedding. Guest room bathrooms will now have marble floors and granite counter tops. The OHANA Waikiki Beachcomber’s lobby and Hibiscus Café restaurant will undergo renovations in 2008.
