Another Day at the Beach

The Wyland Waikiki offers travelers with long layovers a special day rate

The Wyland Waikiki is providing an answer for travelers with a long layover at the airport on Oahu. As an alternative to whiling away time at the airport, travelers can take advantage of the $99 day rate with no overnight stay allowed.

From comfortably appointed guestrooms with plush pillow-top beds to a chill room equipped with iJoy massage chairs and X-box gaming stations, spending the day at The Wyland Waikiki is a convenient way to pass the time.

Visitors can also opt to head to the beach or check out Waikiki.

“With so much to see and do in Waikiki, this special day rate provides travelers an attractive choice to waiting around in an airport for hours,” said Robin Graf, general manager of The Wyland Waikiki. “Visitors can check into the hotel, drop off their bags, relax around the property or head off on an island adventure. Before they leave for the airport, they can freshen up for the flight home. This is especially important on Oahu where so many flights leave late at night.”

The concept is ideal for those who much check out of their hotels before noon or for cruise ship passengers who disembark the ship early in the morning, but whose flights do not depart the island until later in the day.

Neighbor-island travelers heading to the mainland and connecting through Oahu with an extended layover can also take advantage of the rate.

The $99 day rate is valid through Jan. 4.
