Hilton Hawaiian Village
The enormous Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort on Waikiki Beach has
nearly 3000 rooms, making it the largest hotel in Hawaii by a
large margin. It is located on the far west end of Waikiki,
between the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and Fort DeRussy Park. The
resort is split into six "villages" or towers, making it feel
smaller then the mammoth resort that it is. The Hilton Hawaiian
village has five pools, more then twenty restaurants, several
shopping areas, and its own branch of the Bishop Museum. The
hotel also has a children's program called the Rainbow Express
Keiki Club and the Mandara Spa and Fitness Center offers
a large menu of body treatments. The Hilton Hawaiian Village
hotel is #1 on the list of the
10 largest hotels in Hawaii.
