Renovations a win-win opportunity
OHANA Waikiki Islander is extending its popular "$99 Renovation Special," offering an opportunity to vacation affordably. The rate, offered through March 31, refers to renovations going on at the Waikiki Beach Walk promenade adjacent to the OHANA Waikiki Islander. Waikiki Beach Walk is Waikiki's newest hotel-retail-dining-entertainment development.
The special is based on space availability, per room, per night, for single or double occupancy and does not include tax. OHANA's Family Plan allows children under 17 years old to stay free when sharing with parents using existing beds, with a maximum four people per room.
To reserve, call toll-free (800) 462-6262 within the U.S., Guam and Canada, and internationally via AT&T's Direct 800 Service. Elsewhere, call (303) 369-7777, visit www.ohanahotels.com or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
