Waikiki Hotel Opens Brand New Photo Exhibit
Waikiki, Hawaii August 1 (DHN) – The Pink Palace of the Pacific is at it again, opening a brand new photo exhibit this Thursday. Starting this August 4, the Waikiki hotel will host a treasure trove of photos featuring some of Hollywood’s biggest stars that stayed at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel during the 30s and 40s. Entitled “Hollywood’s Golden Age in Waikiki,” this introspective exhibit will be held in the Waikiki hotel’s Coronet Lounge. Best of all, the exhibit is free to all and will run through December 31. The Royal Hawaiian Hotel was the second hotel to open on Waikiki Beach, first opening its doors on February 1, 1927. Over the last 84 years this art deco hotel has become an iconic landmark in Waikiki. Commissioned by William Matson (of Matson Navigation) and designed by the renowned New York City architecture firm of Warren and Wetmore, the Royal Hawaiian was fashioned in an elegant Moorish-Spanish architectural style. The famous hotel last made headlines when it was named as a member to the Historic Hotels of America.
