    Can anyone advise if there are king bedrooms on the lagoon view side of the Hawaii Building?

    The Ambassador and King Kamehameha Suites (in Tonga) have king beds in their master bedrooms.

    Thanks for the quick response. Can anyone recommend a good room number, lagoon view in Hawaii? I ask for Hawaii cuz my wife and I are celebrating our 20th at the same place (same building) we honeymooned. We are splurging for concierge so we will be in Hawaii. Thanks.....

    Loved 3505 - perfect view from the 3rd floor. No trees infront of this room. :)

    Hi congratulations on your 20th. My DH and I will be celebrating this year too. We were in the Hawaii bldg on December 10th thru the 17th,1983. It was beautiful. We haven't been back to that bldg. since. I won't be there this year either. College tuition has arrived so we will be waiting until maybe our 25th. I hope we can do this. Have a wonderful trip.

    Here is the view situation.
    1501 is down next to the lounge and the view of the castle is partly blocked by palms on the beach.
    1502 is also partly blocked by palms
    1503 is partly blocked by beach palms
    1504 is slightly blocked by beach palms
    1505 is clear to the castle
    1506 is blocked by palms on the grass in front of the longhouse.
    1507 is clear with a good view
    1508 is slightly blocked by palms on grass
    1509 is slightly blocked by palms on the grass
    1510 is a good view
    1511 is a good view
    1512 is a good view
    1513 trees on the path block view of lagoon and castle
    1514 trees block view of lagoon and castle
    1515 trees partly block view on the left
    1516 good view
    1517 good view
    1518 (last lagoon view room) slightly covered by foliage on the right but has a view of the lagoon and castle.

    These are what it is like from the ground level. The upper rooms have about the same view but some may be high enough to clear the trees and bushes.

    Steve..... We appreciate all you have done for us. I am wondering of you can recommend the best room to get an unobstructed view of the castle and the Contemporary from Hawaii? Also, is it true, as posted on these boards, that the smoking optional rooms do not have a smoky odor? Thanks again.....:jester:

    Steve..... One last question, I guess..... Is it worth giving up the Hawaii concierge lagoon view if the views at Tahiti are better? Also, are the lagoon view rooms at Tahiti any more expensive than those at Hawaii? Thanks again.....

    Tahiti has the same view as Hawaii. The two buildings face the same diresction and there are some trees and bushes along the beach at Tahiti. In most cases they do not block the views. Tahiti would be cheaper since it is not concierge unless you go next summer when Tahiti will take the place of the Hawaii longhouse while they are working on it. I think either view is great from both longhouses. The only difference is Hawaii is much closer to the beach.

    The rooms in Hawaii's 3rd floor that I have been in did not have any trace of a smoke smell.

    Aloha

    I will be one of those people in the Tahiti concierge next year. I was wondering if you could suggest some room numbers that I could ask for?? We will be Lagoon View Concierge. Also since we will be there for July 4th would a third floor balcony room be better than a ground floor room?? Thanks in Advance.

    We are staying concierge next week and your site has helped make my 40th birthday MAGICAL!!! Thank you!

    The only rooms I ever found to have anything blocking the view close to the room are the ones in the middle of the longhouse where the main entrances are. On the lagoon side these would be rooms X029-X029 (all three floors). The 3rd floor will not give you any better view of the fireworks since they are across the lagoon. Any floor will have a view of the fireworks. The only difference between floors will be that on the first floor you can walk out to the beach to watch. Most people gather on the Hawaii beach and not over at Tahiti. Tahiti does have a large grass area between the longhouse and the beach so you may want to walk out closer to the water.

    Aloha
