From the urban-Hawaiian beach theme in the lobby to the vibrant tropical colors throughout the hotel, Aston Waikiki Beach is fun and full of life. Conveniently located, the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel is within walking distance of the Waikiki Aquarium, Honolulu Zoo and historic Kapiolani Park. Guests can experience Hawaii regional cuisine and live entertainment nightly at on-site Tikiís Grill & Bar. Or, explore the two main strips of Waikiki Ė Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues Ė for shopping, dining and nightlife.


Regarded as one of Waikikiís most popular amenities, Aston Waikiki Beach Hotelís signature offering is Breakfast on the Beach, a variety of to-go breakfast items that can be packed in a keepsake souvenir cooler. Served pool-side daily from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m., guests can eat on the beach or take the cooler on the road while exploring the islandís activities.


Each guest also receives Astonís free Aloha Book, which contains offers worth up to $2,000 in savings on dining, shopping and activities. The book, which doubled in value from 2008, also serves as a guide to some of the best culture, history, cuisine and attractions on the island.


Astonís year-round ďKids Stay, Play & Eat FREEĒ program means children 17 years and younger stay free when using existing bedding and children 12 years and younger receive free admission at top island attractions and free meals at popular family-friendly restaurants when accompanied by a paying adult. Unlike other hotel promotions that encourage kids to play and eat free within the resort, this program allows families to experience a variety of the islandís activities and dining options.

Astonís Front Row Seat to the Ocean is good for travel now through Dec. 23, 2009.  May not be combined with other programs, specials or discounts.
