The birthday celebration was just the start of a month of events at this hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. For Aloha Week, the resort is hosting its own special events.

On September 25th, join guests and visitors in the Paoakalani Tower Main Lobby for The Story of Hamohamo: Queen Lili’uokalani. From 9:30 to 11am, visitors will learn about the history of the hotel and the land upon which it sits. Afterward, head to the first-floor arcade for the local crafters’ fair, held 9am to 2pm on both September 25th and the 27th.

This Pearl Harbor hotel has a special relationship with the past queen. A century ago it was the site of her summer home, which she called Paoakalani, translated to mean “heavenly fragrance.” As it was surrounded by lily ponds, elaborate gardens and tropical flowers, she couldn’t have chosen a better name. Just as the queen used the home as a place to retreat, relax and informally entertain friends and family, the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, with permission from the queen’s Liliuokalani Trust, set to do the same when it built the resort on the royal site.
