History of the Wyland Waikiki Hotel

The history of the Wyland Hotel in Waikiki including how it evolved from being owned by Robert Wyland, to being operated by Hilton as the Doubletree Wyland Waikiki, to being operated by Outrigger as the Wyland Waikiki Hotel.

Wyland Bought Ohana Waikiki Surf Hotel in 2005
In September of 2005, sealife artist Robert Wyland announced he and two partners were transforming the former Ohana Waikiki Surf budget hotel into an upscale boutique hotel called the Wyland Waikiki Resort and Spa. The new hotel was to be designed around the artwork of Robert Wyland and $7 to $10 million would be spent renovating the hotel.

Wyland Hotel Joined Hilton Family in 2006
In July of 2006, before the hotel opened, Wyland announced he had sold most of his interest in the Wyland Hotel, and that the hotel under new its ownership would be managed by Hilton Hotels under the Doubletree brand. At that time it was expected that room rates in the Doubletree Wyland Waikiki Hotel wold begin at around $300 per night.

Outrigger Opened Wyland Hotel in 2007
The hotel opened briefly in October of 2006 but it closed soon after because a mold problem was discovered in some of the rooms. In March of 2007 Hilton backed out of the deal to manage the hotel under the Doubletree brand. By April of 2007 the mold problem had been resolved and Outrigger Enterprises was awarded a contract to manage the hotel. The hotel opened on April 19, 2007 under thename "Wyland Waikiki hotel". When the hotel first opened, best rates were about $170 per night for a room plus breakfast at the International House of Pancakes located across the street.
