Local News

After a $30 million renovation, The Grand Naniloa Hotel Hilo – a DoubleTree by Hilton officially made its debut Thursday.

This is the first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel on Hawaii Island.

We brought you a sneak peek of its new look back in May.

Located along Hilo Bay, the historic 70-acre property features 320 refurbished guest rooms and suites, two restaurants, an entertainment venue, and curated, rotating exhibits that highlight aspects of the town’s history and Hawaiian culture.

In honor of Hilo’s famed Merrie Monarch Festival, hula photographer Kim Taylor Reece, the hotel’s artistic curator, provided $4 million worth of art for display in the guest rooms and common areas.

Formerly known as Hilo Naniloa Hotel, the oceanfront hotel was purchased in November 2013 to prevent the hotel from going bankrupt when its owner fell behind on payments.

The Grand Naniloa Hotel Hilo – a DoubleTree by Hilton is located at 93 Banyan Drive in Hilo.
