New Year 2023

51 Dec22264 Most Stylish Hotel 2023 – Honolulu Located just stone’s throw from Waikiki Beach, sits The Laylow, Autograph Collection– a lush urban oasis which a cozy vibe and stylish twists delight both travellers and locals alike. We find out more from the hotel’s General Manager in the wake of it gaining recognition in the Leaders in Luxury Awards 2023. Where mid-century modern style meets present-day Hawaiian charm, The Laylow is a secluded haven, where relaxing is raised to an art form. Part of the Autograph Collection hotels, The Laylow has achieved fame among travellers and locals alike for its authentic, soulful vibe that comes through in every thoughtful design and service detail. Perched above the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, The Laylow transports guests back to those cool and hip endless summer of mid-century Hawaii for a one-size-fits-all travel experience. From the invigorating saltwater pool to the firepits on the lanai (veranda), stylish details await round each and every corner. The stunning guest rooms and suites stand out with custom created monstera leaf wallpaper, inspired by vintage bark cloth patterns. Surf nostalgia photography and art books adorn the walls, and authentic, playable ukulele line the shelves. All in all, The Laylow is inspired by and to reflect the locality, culture and history to create a singular unique experience that’s quite unlike anything else! “Luxury is about providing quality customer service and connecting with guests to curate an experience that will make a lasting impact,” explains Steve Lindburg, the hotel’s General Manager. “We strive to connect with guests on a deeper level to understand the experiences they’re looking for, and we obsess about the details whether that’s in our design, our food or our service standards.” What makes The Laylow unique is that it is somewhat of a must visit destination for both travelling visitors and locals alike, especially given its pet friendly status. The hotel’s unique design elements set it apart from its competition, and the open-air signature restaurant and bar, Hideout - ensure that serves modern Hapa Hawaiian cuisine, craft cocktails, open air dining and local live music can be enjoyed by residents on a nightly basis, whilst overlooking the glorious cityscape and soaking up the atmosphere. Following the Covid-19 pandemic, the hospitality industry is still experiencing some challenges and Steve has found that guest expectations are constantly evolving. This is why The Laylow and Hideout staff work hard to get to know the guests on a more personal level to ensure their vacation is a memorable one. The hotel has also recently added an on-property partnership with Blue Hawaiian Activities, a concierge service that helps guests conveniently book tours, such as spectacular helicopter rides, guided hiking experiences, and circle island tours, to further enhance their stay and heighten their Waikiki holiday experience. Recently, The Laylow was recognised by LUXLife in the Leaders in Luxury Awards 2023 and bestowed with the prestigious accolade of Most Stylish Hotel 2023 – Honolulu. This title is testament to the dedication and hard work of all the staff at The Laylow who have endured and overcome the tough times to reap the rewards of success. Now, Steve has plans for continuous improvement from guest feedback, which he highly values in order to continue to provide the best possible stay for his clients. “We will implement initiatives and amenities to curate an experience that we hope our guests will mention among their family and friends on how they had an amazing time at our hotel,” he enthuses. “For now, we will continue to be attentive to details, build and maintain strong relationships with guests and others in the sector, and continuously find ways to learn and grow.” Contact: [email protected] Company: The Laylow, Autograph Collection Web Address: Phone Number: 808-922-6600
