The Waikiki EDITION

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Ian Shrager's really done it again with a hip and happenin' Honolulu hotel rivaling the best of 'em by the bay. Marriot's first ever boutique hotel collaboration with the genius behind famed Mondrian, Delano, and Gramercy Park institutions (to name a few) yields a fresh and funky interior design celebrating the indie surfer's lifestyle, complete with a whimsical assortment of old and new Hawaii traditions. 

Wall art comprised of over 100 broken boards greets guests at the front desk...An entire library of rotating books and artwork by famous locals lines the lobby...They've even got Iron Chef Morimoto in the mix with an in house restaurant featuring famous signature dishes of Tuna Pizza and Toro Tartare. Having been searching for the perfect spot to pack my bags come Summer for my gf's destination wedding (Congrats S!!!), I think we've finally found a hit y'all.

If the bf is reading HERE honey...Paradise awaits!!!

  2. There is so much to love about this hotel! First of all, the surfboards could go kitsch but don't, with the rest of the lobby being very sparse! How much would I love to stay in that all white room overlooking the ocean...paradise!
