It's Aloha Friday! We made it through another week!
One of the many things you'll find in Hawaii are hotels. They're everywhere! With tourism being Hawaii's main economy stimulator it's no wonder why there are so many. Like many tourist destinations, the hotel plays a vital role on ones vacation. It's their home away from home, their temporary place of rest, and for some a place of escape. When us locals want to get away for a few days, it's easy to book a hotel room and feel like your away from it all. There's something about the hotel atmosphere that make all your worries go away and allow you to just relax.
Behind all of that magic though are the wonderful staff who make that happen. Many people here make their living by making sure you feel that sense of aloha as soon as you step foot on their property. Each hotel is different. Some will lei you upon check-in while others will have personalized gifts waiting for you at your room. No matter what, I think Hawaii definitely has one of the best hotel service in the world. One of the best things about being local and staying at a hotel here... Kamaaina discount! Now for those of you who don't know what that is, you can be sure that will make it to one of my lucky I live Hawaii posts one day but for now, it's a discount that only locals can get by showing your local ID.
