Hilton Worldwide recently announced the signing of a franchise license agreement to operate the first Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Hawaii, bringing the brand to all 50 U.S. states.
Once opened, the Hilton Garden Inn Kauai/Wailua Bay will be the only Hilton branded hotel on the island of Kauai. Owned by a partnership led by DiNapoli Capital Partners and managed by Aston Hotels & Resorts, the 216-room beachfront hotel is expected to be renovated and open early in 2016.
Next to the Wailua River on the scenic east coast of Kauai, Hilton Garden Inn Kauai/Wailua Bay will be located at 3-5920 Kuhio Highway, Kapaa, Hawaii, and situated on one of the area's only swimmable beaches.
Ownership will be implementing an extensive refurbishment, including a complete room, lobby, meeting space and exterior renovation that will completely transform the property.
Hilton Garden Inn Kauai/Wailua Bay will offer the Hilton Garden Inn brand's signature features, such as its pressure-reducing Garden Sleep System bed, ergonomic desk chair, LCD high-definition, flatscreen television, a spacious work desk, a "hospitality center" that features a mini refrigerator and Keurig single-cup coffee brewer in every guestroom, and complimentary Internet access. The hotel will also have approximately 5,000 square feet of flexible meeting space.
The Garden Grille and Bar will offer a full cooked-to-order breakfast and dinner, cocktails, and evening room service. The Pavilion Pantry will be open 24 hours and feature a complete selection of salty snacks, sweet treats, cold beverages and frozen, microwaveable packaged items.
