The Laylow | Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii
Mid-century modern design meets tropical island vibes, making The Laylow one of the trendiest boutique hotels in central Waikiki. The island mindset of “laying low” is encouraged in this photogenic getaway, which offers a sparkling saltwater pool, nightly entertainment at the laid back Hideout restaurant, and rooms that are both spacious and modern. The lobby is adorned with organic, vintage Polynesian inspired design; lush greenery and a hula-dancer display welcome guest at check-in. Low-key vibes paired with exceptionally accommodating staff offer an escape from the bustling city at its doorstep.

WITHIN ARM'S REACH

The bustling downtown strip of Waikiki offers several restaurants, shops, and entertainment. If you plan to explore the rest of the island we would recommend renting a car to get out of the city and into the heart of the island. Sit tight!
