Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort

Situated on a 22-acre site, the 1,800 room Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort occupies a prime spot on the edge of world famous Waikiki Beach. A multitude of retail shops and restaurants are spread amongst the half-dozen hotel towers---giving one the feeling that you are indeed in a village. I don't know if you're aware but the two mile stretch of beach at Waikiki is not very wide AND packed with people. However, the Hilton fronts the widest and less crowded section of Waikiki Beach. Can't beat the resort's location: a 15-minute walk in one direction brings you to Ala Moana shopping center and with over 200 stores it's Hawaii's largest shopping center (even has a Nieman-Marcus). Take a fifteen minute walk from the Hilton in the opposite direction and you're at the other shopping/restaurant district of Waikiki. The majority of rooms at this tropical paradise are non-smoking.
