Aqua Hospitality continues its revitalization of Waikiki with the official introduction of the newly renovated Park Shore Waikiki, a classic Oahu hotel with an enviable location fronting Waikiki Beach. This property underwent a $10.7 million enhancement to emerge as the area's most stylish boutique hotel experience for both leisure and business travelers.
To launch the property, Aqua has tapped into the hotel's fun and stylish personality to generate buzz and engage its customers across a multitude of media channels. Using the hashtag #FindAloha to tie in all the marketing initiatives, this creative and interactive approach includes programs with Facebook, Instagram and even a Pandora radio channel that includes popular Hawaiian artists such as Auntie Genoa Keawe, Kealii Reichel, Israel Kamakawiwoole, Don Ho, Gabby Pahinui, Brothers Cazimero and Na Leo Pilimehana.
Park Shore Waikiki's enhancement project included a top to bottom transformation of the lobby, guest rooms and outdoor areas. The new lobby features an upgraded front desk, contemporary artwork, and new carpet and lighting. Guestrooms offer a modern, contemporary design with tropical accents. Sleek furniture, dark woods, and granite counter tops combine with a warm color palette for a relaxed and stylish setting.
Clients will appreciate special in-room touches such as Kohler fixtures, 42-inch flat screen HDTVs and colorful island artwork by contemporary Hawaiian surf artist Heather Brown. Complimentary guestroom amenities include in-room HD programming, digital safes, wireless Internet access, mini-refrigerator and coffeemaker. The new hotel experience also features a refreshed pool area with new lounge seating and landscaping, as well as complimentary WiFi throughout the property.
