No, sorry, just the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Doubletree in Honolulu, and the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island for award stays.

I just returned from Kauai -- used some points for an award stay at the Hyatt (which is fabulous).

There may not be a Hilton anytime soon on Kauai. The VIP concierge told me the Hyatt is the ONLY hotel on Kauai that ever fills up these days. Even the Priceville Resort hasn't sold out in three years, she said. Pretty soft economy there, continuing since 9/11. I woke up there the morning of the attacks, and the effect was instantaneous. A shame.

okay, so i live and work here and feel a need to add:

forget what hyatt concierge says, they know nothing! kauai economy is at present the strongest it has EVER been. if you want details, ask.

places to stay? hyatt is mediocre. for a stay here, i'd suggest a condo at nihi kai or poipu kai in poipu (south), the marriott at kalapaki beach (east), or a private house in haena (north).

Well, I'll have a chance to test your assessment. I'll be staying at both the Marriott and the Hyatt this summer (followed by a few days at the HHV, of course).

I've actually stayed in a waterfront room at the Marriott resort in Lihue -- I don't think it compares favorably with the Hyatt in terms of room quality, service, surrounding area or food quality. Just my opinion.

I DO NOT consider the Hyatt mediocre. The grounds are beautiful, rooms are nice, service good. And the weather is better on that side of the island.

Hilton back in Kauai!

On a recent trip to Kauai I got a chance to check out some of the hotels, and low and behold I found out that what used to be the Radisson/Kauai Beach Resort is now being renovated into a Hilton! I got to look into some of the new rooms, and they look really nice compared to what they used to be. It's about time that Hilton is back in Kauai. Here's an article I found on the renovations from Go Hawaii. Enjoy!

That's great news.

$14 million in renovation dollars doesn't go very far at a 350-room property on 25 acres.

Anybody stayed there recently?

Thre are a few lackluster reviews in the Radisson forum, e.g. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=191199.

Q: "Back" in Kauai? Was there formerly a Hilton property there?

Yes, there was. It probably is the same property just being re-Hiltoned.
