WAIKIKI NOW // Hotels on Kuhio Avenue
Picking a hotel at a new destination can be tricky. While Kalakaua Avenue has quite a few oceanfront hotels, there are other options. In this video, we walk down KUHIO AVE to check out affordable hotel options. KUHIO AVE is only 1 street away from the beach so it’s close but without the oceanfront prices.

Curious about what Waikiki looks like right NOW? In today’s video, we start at the HILTON HAWAIIAN VILLAGE and head up to the WAIKIKI SHORE and OUTRIGGER WAIKIKI BEACH RESORT. We take the oceanside walk there. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as sunny as I had initially hoped (3 cloudy days in a row). But, I wanted to show new visitors that Hawaii isn’t always sunny. It was still a gorgeous day out though! Hope this gives you a better picture on what Waikiki looks like right NOW. More Waikiki Now videos coming up in the next week showing you KALAKAUA AVE and KUHIO AVE!
