The Royal Hawaiian is the hotel with the most character in Honolulu, which has everything to do with the fact it is painted pink. Opened in 1927, it has retained an old school charm that is rare in a touristy though lovely town. Added to that its on a great part of the beach, has a nice pool and jacuzzi, and comfortable rooms.

In front of the magnificent pink palace.

Debs in our room.

Having a well earnt Pina Colada by the pool.
