WAIKIKI, Oahu, Hawaii- - December 22, 2008 - Hilton Grand Vacations is pleased to announce the opening of its newest Hawaii property, the Grand Waikikian.

The 38-story Grand Waikikian evokes the ambiance of a grand hotel, while offering the amenities and comforts of a world-class resort condominium. The resort features luxurious one-, two- and three-bedroom suites designed with serenity and space in mind, including five floors of designated penthouses that offer spectacular views and a separate check-in area, concierge and lounge. Incorporated throughout each suite are a private outdoor lanai, upscale furnishings, modern full kitchen, washer and dryer, luxurious linens, flat-screen televisions, state-of-the-art entertainment system, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access, elegant bathroom fixtures with deep-soaking tub, and rich woods and stone details. The resort’s new 5,000-square-foot pool, scheduled for completion in January 2009, will feature a waterslide, waterfalls and swim-through grotto terraces. 

The Grand Waikikian complements the surrounding 22-acre oceanfront resort of Hilton Hawaiian Village, which features more than 90 shops and boutiques and a diverse, international selection of restaurants.
