The Laylow

Honolulu, Hawaii, USA 

Steps from Waikiki beach


HAWAII BECAME “THE NATION’S NEWEST AND MOST EXOTIC STATE” IN LATE 1959, LAUNCHING A NATIONAL OBSESSION WITH THIS ISLAND PARADISE. VACATIONERS FLOCKED TO HONOLULU FOR SURFING, TIKI CULTURE, AND THE NEWLY BUILT MID-CENTURY HOTELS. THE ‘LAYLOW CELEBRATES THIS ROMANTIC ERA IN HAWAII’S HISTORY.

Visitors to The Laylow are transported back to the 1960s through a lush and relaxed atmosphere highlighted by nostalgic details like authentic mid-century modern furnishings, teak accents, palm-patterned wallpaper, and woven lanterns. An outdoor pool beckons with lounge seating and tropical greenery, while the nearby open-air bar offers tiki cocktails made with fresh island fruits. Inside, a curated menu of Hawaiian-fusion dishes (such as a musubi appetizer topped with house-made spam) can be found at the greenhouse-style restaurant The Hideout, complemented by craft beers on tap. And less than a 15-minute stroll from the hotel are world-famous Waikiki Beach, the 75-shop International Market Place, Kapiolani Park, and the Waikiki Shell. As the sun sets over the Pacific after a day of sun-soaked island activity, guests at The Laylow enjoy live entertainment and blazing fire pits.
