About Honolulu International Airport

Situated just 10 miles from Oahu's renowned waterfront spot Waikiki, Honolulu International Airport is the main entry point for the island. Tourists also use this hub for access to the other islands in the chain, such as Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. This facility has a rich history. It's not only the first to provide service to the state and erected in honor of a World War I naval officer John Rodgers, but it's also contributed to U.S. Navy missions during world War II - the hub only allowed civilian flights during daylight hours and used it largely for military purposes. During that time, expansions such as the addition of seven runways, a control tower and thousands of acres helped make it one of the biggest airports in the country.If you're planning a stay in this Hawaiian destination, book a room at one of the hotels near Honolulu International Airport. The Aston At The Executive Centre Hotel is just over 4 miles from the airport and offers luxurious amenities and your choice of various types of suites and guestrooms.

Honolulu

Located on the major Hawaiian island of Oahu, Honolulu is the capital of the state and a focal point of art, culture, shopping and nightlife. That's why it's such a popular tourist destination. In fact, about 7 million people visit this location each year to relax on its gorgeous beaches and swim in the clear blue waters. But the locale is also home to a wide variety of cultural and historical attractions. Add to that the about 1 million people who live here, and it becomes quite a teeming city, but despite it being a bustling metropolis, Honolulu still manages to maintain a laid-back appeal.When heading out of Honolulu International Airport hotels to explore the island, guests should keep in mind that it can be confusing to navigate if you're unfamiliar with the locale. While most cities are laid out like a grid, Honolulu's streets meander about in twists and turns, but it's easier to keep your bearings if you study the major roadways beforehand. When asking for directions, you may find that locals will point the way according to major landmarks rather than cardinal directions - residents often say "mauka" (toward the mountain) and "makai" (toward the sea).

Things to Do in Honolulu

Every Honolulu vacation itinerary should include the top attractions of the city. The Honolulu Museum of Art, for instance, contains one of the most impressive collections of Asian art in the nation, displaying Japanese prints, Indian temple carvings, Chinese calligraphy and other ancient works. Visitors should also take some time to explore ʻIolani Palace. This castle was built in 1882 under the direction of King David Kalakaua and overthrown in 1893 just before the last Hawaiian queen Liliʻuokalani lost the throne when the U.S. took the land as its own territory. Other intriguing institutions include the Waikiki Aquarium, Bishop Museum, USS Arizona Memorial and Kahuna Garden.Those seeking nightlife excitement won't be at a loss either. Start your evening with a delicious meal at one of the many fine dining or casual restaurants, such as Kauaʻi Grill, Kualapuʻu Cookhouse and Lahaina Grill. Then enjoy some live music at House Without a Key, Duke's Waikiki or Lulu's Surf Club. For a nightcap, head to Kuhio Avenue, where most of the city's bars and lounges are concentrated - you'll find the Wai'olu Ocean View Lounge, Zanzibar, Angles and many other establishments.
