Hospitality Industry Veteran Takes Helm at Aston's Park Shore Hotel
HONOLULU (August 12, 1997) - Aston Hotels & Resorts has appointed Paul Tomonari as general manager of the Park Shore Hotel, a 227-room property located on Kalakaua Avenue across from Waikiki Beach.
A veteran of 25 years in the Hawaii hospitality industry, Tomonari has held positions with many of the major resort management companies in Hawaii, including Westin, Sheraton and Stouffer. Most recently, he was assistant general manager at the Ilikai Hotel, where he had also held the position of director of marketing during his 10-year tenure
Tomonari brings a strong background in sales and marketing, as well as operations, to the Park Shore team of dedicated staff who strive to create a home-away-from-home atmosphere for their guests. "In the current economic climate, it's important that staff go the extra mile to make guests feel welcome and I am extremely lucky to be joining such a pro-active team," he says.
The Park Shore offers many Hawaiian touches, including contemporary Hawaiian artwork and native flowers in the recently renovated open-air lobby, lei-making demonstrations, a Friday "pau hana" reception with complimentary mai tais and pupus, complimentary Sunday evening entertainment by local artists, and of course world-famous Waikiki Beach. "For the money, it doesn't get much better than this," remarks Tomonan. "Our guests have the best possible vacation experience available on their doorstep and the Park Shore Hotel staff are ready, willing and able to serve."
