Hawaii 2017; Hilton Hawaiian Village. Oahu: Waikiki and Honolulu
The journey from Kauai to our hotel at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki was quite a shock. Driving through busy Honolulu we encountered all the ills of a typical American big city: homelessness, the drug and alcohol addicted, sprawling shopping malls, and horrendous traffic. A little dispirited it took a bit over two hours to travel nine miles from the airport and to get checked in to our room.
