You may not miss the family car at all after taking the Lotus Elise for a spin around the island, thanks to the Waikiki Parc Hotel.
Waikiki deal puts guest behind wheel of a Lotus
If you can't afford to buy a Lotus, maybe you'll just have to make do with driving one for a day or two. Those who check out the Lotus Experience through Waikiki Parc Hotel's "Room & Vroom" package have a choice of driving a Chili Red or Chrome Orange Lotus Elise, a sports car (MSRP $46,270) with a 150-mph top speed, that goes from 0-to-60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
The two-night package starts at $565, single or double occupancy, and includes the room, use of the Lotus, and complimentary porte-cochere valet parking. Additional nights start at $195, and additional Lotus 24-hour rentals are $175 per day, based on availability, through Dec. 20. Prices are subject to taxes.
To book, call the Parc at 921-7272, or toll-free at (800) 422-0450 from the continental United States and Canada, or visit www.waikikiparc.com. The Waikiki Parc Hotel is the sister property of the Halekulani.
