Move to Hawaii and Get a Deal on New Embassy Hotel in Waikiki
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!
