Sometimes it pays to be local. Really pays. The brand new Embassy Suites Beach Walk Waikiki has opened its doors. The two towers, which were totally refurbished -- as in, gutted as opposed to the usual Waikiki renovation which means new drapes, new furniture and not much else -- are smack in the middle of the Waikiki Beach Walk development, the newest shopping enclave in Waikiki.

The resort area has seen some serious upgrades of late and this is probably the signature one. Now, the kicker. Hawaii residents can take a room in the new all suites Embassy property for the low, low rate of $199 per night. The full rack is roughly twice that. It's ridiculously low rate for a full service hotel that is essentially brand new, a half a block from a good beach, and shouting distance to most of the rest of Waikiki.

Clearly the Embassy is pitching to families and groups. The local offer is a smart move to start word-of-mouth buzz -- most of us in Hawaii get asked for advice on where to stay on a regular basis by people planning to come here. The hotel may offer some comparable door-buster deal but right now, lucky you live Hawaii, cuz!

Waikiki is a nice place to visit

I am glad that the investors of this hotel don`t want to gain and restore money they put into refurbishing in two years, but want to make good offers to attract a huge flow of clients that, in their turn, will help bringing new clients by convincing their friends and relatives that this hotel has good prices for what they are offering. I visited Hawaii some years ago and checked in with my wife at one of the Waikiki hotels. We were satisfied by the services the hotel provided and had a really good time in Hawaii. We want to visit it in future and I hope we could check in the "Embassy Hotel" and see with our eyes the renovations the hotel has suffered.
