Honolulu Airport Hotel Completes $6 million In Upgrades, 
Re-flagged OHANA Honolulu Airport Hotel

HONOLULU, HAWAII - July 17, 2007 - The final phase of a $6 million upgrade of the recently re-flagged OHANA Honolulu Airport Hotel ( 3401 Nimitz Highway ) has just been completed, which means guests are now enjoying brand new guest rooms, updated meeting space, and a refreshed Willoughby's Restaurant for relaxing poolside meals at this well-known airport hotel.

In addition to the upgrade in accommodations and facilities, the OHANA Honolulu Airport Hotel also offers an upgrade in amenities with the recently introduced OHANA Airport Connection, a suite of amenities that includes free (up to the first 15 minutes) local and long distance telephone calls to the US Mainland and Canada, free Internet access, free local newspaper, free in-room coffee/tea service and free airport shuttle service.

"We are so excited that all of our guests can now experience freshly updated accommodations and services at the OHANA Honolulu Airport Hotel," said general manager Robert McConnell. "With the refreshed accommodations and the warm and welcoming island hospitality for which OHANA Hotels is known, guests can count on a positive stay, whether its over night or for several days."

Outrigger Enterprises Group has managed this full-service island favorite since mid-2004, and has overseen all the renovations, which have helped improve satisfaction among its key guests - including business travelers, government and military personnel, transiting airline passengers, airline and cruise ship crews and Hawaii residents. 

Every guest now checking into the hotel is experiencing newly-upgraded accommodations and facilities that feature an island theme of tropical foliage in soft tropical colors. Walls have been freshly painted; black-out draperies, carpets and beds with Serta mattresses are new. Locally produced island art adorns the walls and each guest room includes a new refrigerator and 24" television offering the latest in in-room, on-demand movies and games. All guest rooms, corridors and public areas are 100% smoke free.

Bathrooms have also been completely refurbished with new plumbing fixtures, floor tiles, cherry wood cabinets with granite countertops and enhanced lighting.
