FAQ: How early should I arrive?
    • Parking in Waikiki can be tricky! To be safe, we suggest arriving around 15-20 minutes before your reservation to find a parking spot that works for you. Worst case scenario, you arrive early for your room – in which case we are happy to recommend some local food and drink spots to enjoy! 
FAQ: How do I book a room?

FAQ: Am I really going to be locked in a room?
