They do not. They don't even put you in a Penthouse suite. The Ambassador suites are on the 40th floor & have 2 bedrooms. The penthouse suites are fairly large and are true suites with a separate bedroom. They have a small wet bar area. Both have a powder room in the living room area and the ambassadors have a bathroom for each bedroom.

What you get with a TSU is a parlor suite, which is 2 rooms together with the adjoining door opened. One is a regular hotel room and the other is set up like a living room and has a Murphy bed. This also has a full bath.

You can use a TSU and ask what the upcharge would be for one of the other suites. I've paid it for the Penthouse suites. It's not a small charge.

They are not offering regular award rooms on any night EVER, regardless of inventory. Just regency club rooms at 27K per night.

It's crap like this that reminds me why I wasn't willing to try for 60 nights this year.
So look does this really surprise you about this particular property or for that matter the Andaz Maui?

I just put in some random dates and it came up with both the regular points rate and also C&P. What nights are you looking at? Make sure that you don't select a corporate rate code or any other kind of special rate (AAA) as I've noticed that sometimes messes up the point inventory that is displayed on the website.

Even looking at the week after next both regular and C&P is available.

That should be a good sign that the new owners are changing things. Except the Orange County property was pretty good now what !

Orange County was fantastic. I wonder where the GM went! The Waikiki Hotel has been pretty bad the last 2 years ever since Jim and Hannah left.

I agree why my "tongue and cheek" on their new manager.

Regency Club

I heard the Regency Club will be relocating to where The Colony used to be temporarily on or about December 10th while they do repairs due to a leak from the floor above.

Interesting- will try to confirm that over Thanksgiving. Rumor that RC may move to Japengo space as they sell so much RC access (outside of RC rooms and Glabalists that have access).

Greetings from the relocated Regency Club.

Can't recall what this windowless space used to be but it is a large room on the 2nd floor quite close to the Diamond Head elevators. Word is repairs should take 5 weeks. FYI, this RC is no longer open 24hrs..Closing time is 10pm


Setting up the evening spread. Bar area to the right


Tiramisu for dessert.
​​​​​
Staff is still great! While I really miss the outdoor space, this room does have much more seating so I'm hoping jockeying for a table won't be as much of an issue at breakfast as in the past.

I hadn't read this thread lately so I was caught totally unaware of the change. Consequently, I learned of the RC's closure upon checking in.

I realize that repairs to the RC were necessary but notice should be given to alert reservation holders of the current temporary conditions. Neither the property website nor any other official notice mention the current club condition.

I've been in that space.

It was during the renovations of the lobby. This is where they put the front desk
