The hotel with its unique blend of Moorish-Spanish design and stunning coral pink stucco has made it the most celebrated landmark on Waikiki Beach. It is nicknamed the Pink Palace of the Pacific, with its soaring turrets, tropical gardens and hushed coconut grove. The Royal Tower, a modern building, is also a part of the hotel and it is adjacent to the Historic Building.
