When visitor arrivals go down, Hawaii's hotels and resorts offer more and better deals. The closer you are to your departure date the more deals you're likely to find. Keep in mind, hotels and resorts have one goal and one goal only. Fill those rooms.
Almost all of the major hotels and resorts in Hawaii are offering free nights. Some are offering two free nights. This means that if you book your stay for a minimum number of nights you get one or two additional nights free.
A number of hotels and resorts are also offering additional freebies such as free breakfasts or dining credits, children eat free, free rental car and free parking.
These can quickly add up to hundreds of dollars in savings.
Here are a few links to the numerous specials and packages being offered for the fall and winter of 2012-2013:

- Castle Resorts & Hotels
- Hilton Family Hawaii
- Marriott Resorts Hawaii has a number of packages for Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Hawaii's Big Island.

Kaua'i and Maui Deals
The Grand Hyatt Kaua'i Resort and Spa and Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa has a number of exciting deals available for the rest of 2012.
The Ka'anapali Beach Hotel has several specials for the fall of 2012 starting as low as $1,349 for a four night "Best of the Beach" package that includes plenty of amenities including a rental car, daily buffet breakfast for two and one lunch for two at the poolside Tiki Grill.
Halekulani has more packages and specials than I have ever seen from this iconic hotel. Included in many of these packages are complimentary welcome amenity, complimentary WiFI access, and admission to some of the island's top arts and cultural venues including the 'Iolani Palace, Bishop Museum, Honolulu Academy of Arts, The Contemporary Museum and the Honolulu Symphony concerts.
The Kahala Hotel & Resort has a number of fall specials including a "Suite Chic" promotion that gives guests the opportunity to relax in The Kahala's newly redesigned suites at a 30% savings. Book 60 days ahead and you can save 45%.
These are just the "tip of the iceberg," however. Many smaller and/or independently owned hotels across the islands are offering similar deals.
Travel to Hawaii during the fall and winter of 2012-2013 can be highly affordable.
