Sheraton Princess Ka'iulani
It’s quite fitting that this modest gem of a hotel is named for Victoria Kaʻiulani Kalaninuiahilapalapa Kawekiu i Lunalilo Cleghorn (1875–1899), because like this hotel, compared to her luxury Starwood sister hotels across the street, Princess Kaʻiulani too, was humble, and stood in the shadow of her more decorated relatives. This 1,142-room hotel is one of the original Waikiki destinations. The property recently went through a $35 million of renovation and is a haven for mid-century modern Hawaiʻiana, featuring original artwork by Nick Kuchar, Katie Borden and Mike Field, along with artwork and prints from the 1960s sourced from Bishop Museum, and original artwork of Hawaiʻian alii (royalty) that has hung in the hotel since it opened in 1955.
