On March 11, 1901, when the four-story 75-room Moana hotel opened it was the first beachfront resort on Waikiki Beach, and one of Oahu’s tallest and most elaborate buildings. In 1918, two wings were added along with two additional floors, for a total of 225 rooms in the main Banyan Wing building. The addition of these wings formed a courtyard around the historic Banyan tree. 

In 1952, the SurfRider Hotel opened, under the same ownership of the Matson Company. In 1969, the 430-room SurfRider Tower opened. The central portion of the Sheraton Moana Surfrider, listed in The National Register of Historic Places, re-opened on March 29, 1989 after completion of a 20-month, $50 million architectural restoration. March 11, 2001 commemorated the Moana’s 100-year anniversary. 

This historic oceanfront resort now features 793 luxurious rooms, including 46 suites (36 with oceanfront lanai). The hotel has a freshwater swimming pool, three restaurants, oceanfront beach bar and poolside snack bar. Located on Waikiki Beach, the Sheraton Moana Surfrider is within walking distance of the International Marketplace, Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, the Honolulu Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium.
