Unless you're fortunate enough to have relatives or close friends in Hawaii you'll need to book lodging. Like airfare, lodging tends to be more expensive during the "high" season of mid-December to mid-April.

There are a number of types of accommodations to consider and the cost will vary, often greatly, depending on where you decide to stay. There are resorts, standard hotels, condominium hotels, bed & breakfasts and vacation rentals. Generally speaking, the larger resorts tend to be more expensive than a standard hotel, but they often offer nicer rooms and pools, on-site restaurants and shopping, and more activities.

Condominium hotels and vacation rentals are a great alternative for families since most come with a kitchen and you can save significant money on food. Folks who enjoy bed & breakfasts will find some excellent choices in Hawaii. Here are some related features to help you decide where to stay.

Next, let me help you decide whether to plan your trip around a special time of year or annual festival.
