heart of the new Waikiki Beach Walk retail and entertainment complex.
The latest addition to Hawaii's resort

Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk. As the new flagship hotel for the Embassy
Suites brand, the hotel located in the heart of Waikiki on the island of
Oahu, is nearing completion and now taking reservations for visits beginning
January 5, 2007.
As Embassy Suites Hotel-Waikiki Beach Walk opens, it will be the brand's
first all-leisure property. The hotel, which is owned and operated by
Outrigger Enterprises Group, Hawaii's oldest and most well-known hospitality
company, will give guests a unique experience by offering true island
hospitality in a modern, upscale setting. At the center of Waikiki Beach
Walk(tm), the hotel is an integral part of Outrigger Enterprises Group's
$700 million revitalization project, the largest and most comprehensive
development in Waikiki's history.
"Our partnership with Embassy Suites has made it possible to bring the
spirit of aloha to a popular and respected national brand. Guests staying at
the Embassy Suite Hotel-Waikiki Beach Walk will truly have a one-of-a-kind
experience," says Barry Wallace, Executive Vice President of Hospitality
Services for Outrigger Enterprises Group. "Our new Waikiki Beach Walk
destination has been a long time in coming and we are very eager to finally
see it all come together when our first Embassy Suites guests check in."
Located just steps away from the world famous Waikiki Beach, the 21-story
Embassy Suites Hotel-Waikiki Beach Walk(tm) will offer two all-suite towers,
the Hula Tower and the Aloha Tower. This new all-leisure hotel will cater to
families looking for Hawaiian adventure, couples looking to share a
romantic, Hawaiian sunset and friends looking for delicious meals, unique
shopping and plenty of fun.
"We are excited for guests to experience this wonderful, new, all-suite
hotel," says General Manager Bob Yeoman. "We've put our heart and soul into
the details of the hotel and want to make sure that each guest has the best
experience possible. We're looking forward to welcoming each and every guest
in the New Year."
This extraordinary hotel experience will begin at the porte-cochere with
valet parking services. Guest will walk through a large, open, fresh air
entrance-hall to a casual check-in pod where they will be welcomed with a
complimentary welcome beverage and provided information on the hotel by an
Embassy Suites representative. They can then stop by the activities desk
where the activities concierge can discuss the many options available not
only around the hotel, but the many things to do around the island, such as
tours, excursions or the abundance of activities all within walking distance
of the hotel.
Upon entering one of the 353 spacious one-bedroom suites or 68 two-bedroom
suites - many with stunning ocean views - the guest will receive a personal
welcome call from the general manager or assistant general manager, a
complimentary CD compilation of local Hawaiian music, and a different
Hawaiian story card left in the rooms each night, to inform and educate
guests about Hawaii's unique traditions and culture.
Guests will also appreciate that each suite offers a separate living room,
deluxe bedding, a flat panel LCD TV in the living room and bedrooms, mini
refrigerator, wet bar, microwave, coffee maker, a telephone in each living
and bedroom, in-room safe, and an MP3/CD player clock radio. In addition,
the resort offers a complimentary 24-hour fitness center, a 24-hour business
center, free local and domestic (U.S. and Canada) long distance phone calls
as well as high-speed Internet access for all guests.
When ready to explore, guests can head down to the expansive fourth-floor
Grand Lanai, which connects the two towers, where they will discover a
spacious sundeck and swimming pool - equipped with a flowing waterfall which
changes colors on an hourly basis. Adjacent to the swimming pool will be a
roomy sundeck spotted with an abundance of comfortable chaise lounges
allowing guests to relax, unwind and enjoy the warm, fresh Hawaiian air. The
Grand Lanai also boasts 2,000 square feet of meeting space. At night, the
sundeck will transform into a lively meeting place with a pool bar and
nightly entertainment. Each evening, the Embassy Suites Hotel will host a
two-hour Manager's Reception* with complimentary beverages and snacks for
all registered hotel guests.
The Grand Lanai also features a covered terrace where, as with all Embassy
Suites Hotels, guests will enjoy the signature complimentary cooked-to-order
breakfast each morning, including a selection of fresh local fruits and
island favorites, such as Portuguese sausage, Spam, and rice along with the
standard Embassy Suites breakfast offerings.
Steps away from the hotel, guests can surf, swim or simply enjoy the
beautiful waters of Waikiki Beach. And when the sun goes down, guests are in
the heart of Waikiki's newest and most exciting shopping, dining, and
entertainment destination, Waikiki Beach Walk(tm). Embassy guests are right
