Waikiki Hotel Featured in TV Series

Fans of CBS' new Hawaii Five-0 police drama will probably notice scenes that were filmed at Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa. For example, the October 25 episode included shots of The Rainbow Tower and pathway near the Super Pool, as well as a scene at Tropics Bar & Grill (where the Blue Hawaii cocktail, which was invented at the resort, makes a colorful cameo).

Naturally, the hotel is making the most of its connection with the hit series, which is presented Monday nights in Tropics Bar & Grill at the hotel along with prizes and two theme drinks (see below). Guests can keep an eye out for:

*    Hawaii Five-0 Branding Elements
*    Official Hawaii Five-0 ringtone cards at select Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties - complimentary for guests through November 5.
*    Hawaii Five-0 Cocktail - Absolut Raspberri blended with blue curacao and a touch of sweet and sour with strawberry puree
*    Book 'em Danno! Mocktail - Blue raspberry puree blended with sweet and sour and a splash of soda with strawberry puree

Coming up: The year 2011 marks the 50th anniversary, or Year "Five-0" (get it?) of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand's presence in Hawaii. The momentous "Five-0" anniversary will be celebrated with special events, packages and promotions throughout the year beginning in January 2011.
