Unlike the standard rooms at The Waikiki Edition, this corner room situates the closet between the door and the bed so the closet is the first thing a guest sees upon entering. A sharp left and then right leads to the rest of the room. Guess this is a good thing with the closet serving as a buffer from any noise emanating from the hall.

A custom teak sliding screen with adjustable louvers and curtains along the sliding doors to the terrace modulates the natural light entering the room. The oversized terrace is furnished with a pair of comfortable lounging chairs and an accent table. Of course with city view rooms situated at the north end of the hotel, the noise from the busy intersection below drifts upward. But the traffic would subside as rush hour eases slowly throughout the evening. Until then the sliding doors sufficiently muffled the discord of vehicles below.
This is a room also made for working with a large generous desk space and chair. Bright custom lighting features around the room makes up for the lack of a central lighting fixture. Some of these fixtures have dimming switches. With no armoire or drawers, most of the storage is relegated to the closet with a shelf column. Combined with a full-length closet shelf, this is more than adequate to keep personal effects organized in one singular space. An upholstered armchair with ottoman offers additional seating.
