A truly exquisite Waikiki staple, Honolulu's Halekulani Hotel in the heart of Waikiki is a luxury oceanfront place to stay to enjoy all of the pampering the island has to offer. Some of the highlights are over 450 rooms, a pool, free fitness room, six shops, three restaurants, day spa, and even free valet parking. Repeat guests have their needs tracked; if you're a coffee drinker, expect coffee each morning of every stay.

This is the hotel where you feel like royalty, even if you’re far from it. Want to step it up for a honeymoon? Rent a Bentley for $995 and ask for a pillow that's just right. Rooms begin at just over $400 and go all the way up to about $7,000. Well, okay, the latter isn't just a room. It comes with a personal butler, baby grand piano, and is named after Vera Wang. You get the idea.
Translating to "house of heaven," Halekulani sure lives up to its name.
