Aqua-Aston Hospitality is celebrating its 70th year in Hawaii with a series of promotions and events running through April.
Marking the launch of what would become Aston Hotels in 1948, the Share the Aloha event includes celebrations at individual properties, beach cleanups and discounted rates at properties like The Residences at Waikiki Beach Tower and Aqua Oasis.
The 70th commemoration and Share the Aloha campaign started on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27. There are multiple components to the campaign including celebrating Hawaii's host culture, supporting initiatives that embrace tolerance, equality and diversity and driving green business initiatives.
Interval Leisure Group, a Miami-based company, purchased the Oahu-headquartered Aston Hotels and Resorts in 2007 and Aqua in 2013, and then merged the two companies in 2015. In September 2018 Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corp. acquired ILG.
