Queen Kapiolani Hotel
Good value just a block from Waikiki Beach.
Located a block from the beach and the Waikiki Aquarium, and just across the street from the Honolulu Zoo and Kapiolani Park, this nineteen-floor hotel is popular with budget-minded travelers and islanders who visit regularly from the neighbor islands. The location is one that offers easy access into and out of the Waikiki resort area without the feeling of being in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. This 315-room non-smoking hotel has a wonderful swimming pool and deck, gift shop, activities desk and the Garden Lanai Restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Shows, bars, shopping, tennis and golf are all within easy walking distance. All guest rooms have daily maid service, 42-inch flat screen TVs, air-conditioning and irons/ironing boards. Hotel suites have kitchenettes and microwaves. Complimentary W-Fi Internet access is available throughout the hotel. Although rooms are spacious and comfortable, those with views of the park and Diamond Head are the real value here. Limited parking is offered on-property, and there is ample metered parking located across the street.

When we last visited the Maui Brewing Co.'s brew pub in Lahaina, we were thrilled to hear this small company was making plans to package and sell their handcrafted product on the open market. Visitors to Hawaii have long enjoyed this microbrew's quality, but now it is steadily growing its market off the island.
When we think of vodka and pineapple, many good things come to mind: a tropical cocktail that combines the neutral spirit with pineapple juice, preferably served with a tiny umbrella; a pineapple-infused vodka; or biting into a pineapple that's been soaked in vodka for an adult tropical treat. But we never thought of vodka actually made from pineapple!
