Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Joins Historic Hotels of America Program

The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on Hawaii Island recently announced its induction into Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation for recognizing and celebrating the finest historic hotels. The hotel will now be included in the organization’s elite directory.

Of the 34 hotels inducted into Historic Hotels of America in 2016, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was one of the few mid-century modern historic hotels selected and is currently the only one with that unique design aesthetic in Hawaii, according to a Mauna Kea Beach Hotel statement.
