Grand Naniloa Resort — A DoubleTree by Hilton

The most polished and inviting hotel in Hilo also claims the best spot on Hilo Bay, with beautiful ocean, mountain and bay views from floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies in its 379 rooms. Spread across three towers, the bright white rooms and public spaces showcase $4 million of Kim Taylor Reece’s stunning black-and-white photography of authentic hula dancers. Hula is the theme here, from the name of the lively, locally sourced poolside restaurant Hula Hula’s to the videos of Merrie Monarch hula competition videos running in the lobby near the sleek, open-air lounge. The Hilton branding means bedding is super-comfortable and service is professional. The resort fee includes use of snorkel gear, play on the neighboring 9-hole golf course, tropical cocktails and other amenities.
