Arrow Hilton Garden Inn Kauai/Wailua Bay {US-HI}

We can all breath a sigh of relief.

Finally an HGI on its way to Kauai.

That's good news. The Courtyard in the area is OK but I'd much rather stay at an HGI. Hopefully they'll offer the standard HGI benefits.

that's the hotel they're talking about:
http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev...ai_Hawaii.html

the beach close by is a public beach, which is extremely popular and all around the hotel are lots and lots of chicken - which start their day very early.....

and let's hope the new owner is going to do a thorough renovation, otherwise i would wait for the first reviews to be posted, before i would stay at this hgi.

Thanks for the link. Hopefully they'll bring the place up to HGI standards.

Have you been to Kapaa? Chickens are a fact of life there. Didn't bother us but some might not like them. Also we were told that all beaches in Hawaii are public except for a few with limitations dictated by the federal government (maybe military? dunno) If you can get there and park legally you're set.

Yeah. Great news. There has not been a Hilton-branded hotel on Kauai in more than five years.

the chickens run all around this hotel, that's probably not going to change in the future. we stayed in a condo nearby - no chickens on that property. i don't mind public beaches, there's a beachpark right by the hotel and it's very popular on the weekends. the beach is nice and safe for swimming, but what i like better is that there is the possibly for a long nice walk along the beach - up to the former hilton hotel.

Anybody hear anything new on this hotel? Just looked on the website for next September to see if anything was bookable, or any other details. Nothing found.

Thinking about a stay there later next year, if it is available...

New properties may not open reservations until they're within 4-8 weeks of opening. If the 'early 2016' holds, try again in January.
