Embassy Suites Hotels opening Hawaii's first and only all-suite hotel in the heart of the new Waikiki Beach Walk retail and entertainment complex.

The latest addition to Hawaii's resort destination of Waikiki is the all new, all-suite Embassy Suites 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 in the center of a wide selection of resort shops, boutiques and a full schedule of cultural activities and musical events -- including ukulele lessons, hula lessons, lei making, story telling, wood carving and well-known musical acts -- in and around Waikiki Beach Walk's(tm) open-air plaza and center stage. And when its time to enjoy a leisurely meal, Embassy guests can indulge at fine eateries such as Roy's(r) Waikiki, Yard House, Ruth's Chris(r) Steak House, and Holokai Grill, to name a few.
