ResortQuest Waikiki is offering a
Fabulous Fall special.
I love Paris in the springtime, just like the song says, but I adore Waikiki in the fall. The beach, shops and restaurants feel less crowded, and hotels and activity outfitters join forces for value-added packages.

In the next four months, clients can take advantage of autumn specials while experiencing the many changes in the South Oahu destination.

“With nearly $2 billion currently being invested into Waikiki, fall visitors will find a vibrant look and feel,” said Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau president John Monahan.

A free-night offer sweetens the sale of a Waikiki vacation. Case in point is the Fabulous Fall Special at ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Hotel, where clients get the third night on the house as well as daily breakfast. Nightly rates start at $264 with a three-night minimum through Dec. 20.

Accommodations with a kitchen can help fall travelers save money. At Outrigger’s Condominium Collection, nightly rates start at $199 at Outrigger Luana Waikiki, $235 at Outrigger Regency on Beachwalk and $245 at Outrigger Waikiki Shore Resort, through Dec. 21.

When autumn passion prevails, suggest Miramar at Waikiki’s Romance Special combining champagne, chocolates, breakfast, parking and a rental car. Three-night rates through Dec. 20 start at $625.

Halekulani has rolled out its Family Plan, an incentive to book two accommodations at once. Through Dec. 22, nightly rates begin at $535 for the first room and $405 for the second.

The Waikiki Parc has a Lotus
Experience offering.
Waikiki Parc’s Lotus Experience comes with 24-hour use of a sleek Lotus Elise roadster, valet parking and a Lotus amenity. The two-night enticement, good through Dec. 20, starts at $565.

Sunsational Savings await at Starwood Hotels and Resorts Hawaii, whose fall promotion of the same name starts at $375 per night. Waikiki guests get a $275 dining credit and the fourth night free through Dec. 20.

Sun, Sand, Sea and Save. That’s the pitch from Castle Resorts and Hotels, which is slashing room prices by up to 25 percent for visits through Nov. 30. At its Ocean Resort Hotel Waikiki, nightly rates start at $95.

When booking Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort and Spa’s Hang Ten Surfing package, clients get a lesson from surf pro Tony Moniz. Good through Dec. 26, nightly rates from $254 require a three-night minimum.

Prince Resorts Hawaii is rallying autumn travelers with the money-saving Fall Into Winter package, from Oct. 1-Dec. 22. For every three-night booking, clients get a $150 credit good for amenities like dining, golf and massages. Nightly rates start at $219 at Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club.
