Hotels in the Island of Oahu

Honolulu is the capital of and the most populous in the state of Hawaii. Although Honolulu
refers to the urban area on the southeastern shore of the island of Oahu, the city and the
county are consolidated, known as the City and County of Honolulu, and the city and county
are designated as the entire island.

Waikiki Beach
Waikiki Beach is perhaps the world's most famous and most filmed beach. It actually consists
of nine individually named beaches stretching along the two miles from Kahanamoku Beach near
the Hilton Hawaiian Village to the Outrigger Canoe Club Beach near the foot of Diamond Head.
The beach today is almost entirely artificial, as new sand has been added to control erosion.

Royal Hawaiian Hotel shows the sign plate of 'Smoking in this area is prohibited by law.' in various places.
The number of total guest rooms is 528. Smoking floor locates on the top floor of six-story's Historic Wing,
and 10th to 15th and 17th floor of the Royal Tower. The rates of smoking rooms are between 30% and 40%.
However, this numerical answer by a receptionist was soon withdrawn, saying it is 20% or less, perhaps
because of Hawaian smoke-free act. Anyway, if you want a room with a nice view, you have to stay in
a smoking guest room, in some cases.

The view from the Royal Hawaiian Hotel is the representative of Waikiki Beach and the Diamond Head all the time.

Waikiki's Pacific Beach Hotel provides smoking rooms on the 7th to 10th floor, 19th to 22nd, 30th
and 31st floor of the 38-story's Oceanarium Tower. The approximate rate of smoking rooms is
about 10 percent of the total guest rooms.
