Hawaii Hilton Hawaiian Village finishes $25M renovation By Shane Nelson / January 13, 2013 Share 1 -- The Hilton Hawaiian Village resort in Waikiki has completed a seven-month, $25.5 million renovation project to its 323-room Alii Tower. Room upgrades included new furnishings and new bathrooms while the building’s corridors, reception desk and lobby were overhauled. The project also involved the reconfiguration of eight junior suites and four two-bedroom suites along with the renovation of two presidential suites. Final upgrades to the tower’s second floor Ocean View Terrace are scheduled to finish up in May. “It was critical that we maintained [the Alii Tower’s] tradition of grandeur but at the same time create a vibrant, modern look,” Jerry Gibson, area vice president of Hilton Hawaii, said in a statement. “Our designers did a remarkable job of accomplishing both.”The Hilton Hawaiian Village finished up a $45 million renovation to its Rainbow Tower in December of 2011 and has since invested more than $90 million into the refurbishment of its two beachfront towers, the Tapa Pool and its coral ballroom facility.
