Sheraton Waikiki Debuts Major Ballroom Update




sheraton waikiki

The Sheraton Waikiki has rolled out a new update to its meetings and convention space for the first time in nearly a decade. 

The $1.4 million project updated the Oahu hotel’s meeting and convention facilities over the summer, including the Hawaii Ballroom, which at 26,000 square feet is one of the largest hotel ballrooms in Waikiki

The 1,636-room resort has space for groups of between 10 and 2,500 people. In addition to the ballroom, there are other suites and breakout spaces, several with ocean views. The Hawaii Ballroom foyer also now has new furnishings, and the entire second floor has updated technology. 

Inspiration for the 100,000 square feet of custom-designed carpet came from Hawaii’s archipelago and its importance to the Pacific region. The carpet design details ocean current-inspired charts, while the colors were inspired by the surrounding land, ocean and sky. The carpet design also matches many of the cultural works of art housed at the Sheraton Waikiki, including the sand sculpture in the lobby and the mural in the Aloha Landing that depicts a lei being sewn. 

In addition to the new customized carpet, more than 200 gallons of paint and primer were used. The upgraded ballroom also has 3,000 new banquet chairs. The work lasted about a month and opened on Friday, September 8, when The Queen’s Health Systems (QHS) became the first group to have a function in the new space. Queen’s is the leading healthcare company in the islands and Pacific Region and had more than 1,000 of its stakeholders attend its annual Benefit Dinner event. 

The resort’s culinary teams now have more than $200,000 in state-of-the-art buffet equipment as part of the upgrades. In addition, Sheraton Waikiki’s food and beverage operations adhere to a “Farm-to-Table” concept, serving local ingredients. 

Groups can request for proposals by going to Sheraton Waikiki’s Meetings Overview Page on the website.
