Since 1901, Waikiki Beach has beckoning travelers from all over the world. The first modern hotel to grace the shores of Waikiki was the Moana Hotel, followed 26 years later by her sister hotel, The Royal Hawaiian.
In the mid-fifties, the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani was built on the site of the Ainahau estate, former home to the hotel's namesake, Princess Victoria Kaiulani. During the hotel boom of the 1970s the grand Sheraton Waikiki opened.
These four hotels have played a significant role in the development of Waikiki into a world-class destination and, at the same time, have maintained the tradition and grace that first brought travelers to the islands over a century ago.
Today's travelers can continue experience the allure of Waikiki through Sheraton Hawaii's SunSational Savings package. When you book the SunSational Savings rates, you get the third night free, free daily breakfast for two and a complimentary upgrade.

The four Sheraton Hotels in Waikiki have taken great care to preserve the history and culture of Hawaii and have woven them into many of the activities and services offered. Each of the hotels offers complimentary historical walking tours for those interested in taking a step back in time.
Visitors can also take an odyssey through the South Pacific's beginnings with the Creation - A Polynesian Journey dinner show in the Ainahau Showroom of the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani.
Taking tea at the Banyan Veranda was a Waikiki tradition in the early 1900s and the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort honors this gracious tradition today with the finest international and locally produced teas the market provides, accompanied by an elegant selection of finger sandwiches and continental pastries.
