Prince Waikiki Hotel Wraps Reno of Meeting Spaces, Guest Rooms

Although it was still about eight months away from fully completing a $55.4 million renovation, the potential for the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club was quite apparent to our partner publication Travel Agent after a stay there back in September.

What impressed the most were the views from the recently-renovated Diamond Tower, which represented one of the portions of the project that was already completed at the time of the stay. 

Whether it was helicopters flying high in the Waikiki sky or the scores of lavish sailboats leaving and entering the marina outside of our room, there was no shortage of excitement from Travel Agent’s suite on the 30th floor.

And now the rest of the hotel is fully complete and open for bookings. 

Prince Waikiki, positioned at the heart of Honolulu’s vibrant and diverse Chinatown, Kaka‘ako, Ala Moana and Waikiki neighborhoods, announced this week the completion of its eight-month, hotel-wide transformation and redesign of its lobby, 563 floor-to-ceiling ocean view guest rooms and suites, dining outlets, outdoor infinity pool area and meeting spaces.

All 563 remodeled, ocean-front guest rooms, including 33 luxurious one- and two-bedroom suites, showcase floor-to-ceiling glass windows and afford each guest a full view of the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, Waikiki, the coastline and the horizon beyond. With windows that open to tropical breezes, guests have the option to transform their room into their own private lanai. 

The decor and interior design gives nod to the hotel’s historical sense of place: the carpet reflects sand dunes that was once formed by the estuary where the hinana fish flourished and the hand painted wall mural captures the naio flower, which thrived along the banks of the Piinao waterway. Bathrooms include updated fixtures, modern washlets and specialized bath amenities by Mālie Organics, offering all-natural organic products embodying the tropical flora of Hawaii.

The hotel also offers Prince Waikiki Club Rooms for those wanting to enjoy spacious, modernized guest rooms, located on the highest floors, with enhanced amenities and personalized services. 

Prince Waikiki Club Room guests have private access to the poolside Prince Waikiki Club Lounge, which offers indoor and outdoor terrace seating with spectacular ocean views, complimentary morning breakfast, afternoon snacks, evening hor d’oeuvres and beverages, along with a personalized concierge service including private club lounge check-in and check-out.

Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest Revamps Meeting Space

Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest has refurbished its events area and MICE offerings with the addition of new technology and design features. 

The refresh by MKV Design spans the following areas:

The Grand Room (Rooms One, Two, Three)

The Grand Room’s ambiance has been made flexible by a color spectrum iPad app that is capable of mixing any shade. There are now over 300 lighting spots, complemented by unique purpose-designed Hungarian wall fixtures, as well as crystal chandeliers.

Planners can also take advantage of a fully operational stove and countertop in The Kitchen dining and lounge area.

The proximity of the Business Centre allows for immediate secretarial services, while organizers can also set up their conference operational office in the two boardrooms (Room Four and Five), Kempinski said.

Room Six

The floor is covered with wood, and the wallpaper offers ambient lighting, while the ceiling is adorned with small spotlights that aim to evoke a star-lit sky.

Infinity Room (Rooms Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten)

These rooms have been significantly enlarged and now all enjoy natural daylight. The conference logos and signs have been built in magic mirror.

The Pre-Function Area caters equally well to social functions and business gatherings with two hospitality desks, for delegates’ registration and information points, Kempinski said.

The space’s audiovisual network allows for intra-room AV communication via fiber optic cables.
