Hotels

We have made arrangements for reduced rates at three local lodging facilities covering a range of experiences for our guests.  The main hotel option is the Pacific Beach Hotel, with room rates starting at $177 (+ taxes and fees).  For a more resort-like experience, we have a smaller block of hotel rooms at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, with rates starting at $259 (+ taxes and fees), depending on the view. For the budget traveler, more spartan rooms are also available at Lincoln Hall on the UH Manoa campus, within walking distance of the IfA (1 mile).

Pacific Beach Hotel

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Pacific Beach Hotel for participants from off island. Follow this Google Map link for directions.  The IfA’s block of rooms will be held until May 27.

The rate for the Pacific Beach Hotel is $177 per night (standard / partial ocean view), subject to hotel room tax and excise tax of 13.962% plus porterage fee of $9.95 per person.  This is the US Federal allowed rate for Waikiki.  The rate is based on single or double occupancy; the additional charge for adults is $50/day each (max of 4 total).  Rates will be honored June 27, 2017 – July 1, 2017, and if rooms are available may be extended to June 24 – July 4.  Parking will be discounted 50% (currently prevailing rates are $25 self, $33 valet). This hotel will be undergoing renovations in the lobby, and main restaurant will be unavailable. However the breakfast area will be available.
