Hawaiian Hotel Tour: The Laylow Waikiki

Ahhh, the trip I never knew I needed to take! On the way to our new home in the Marshall Islands we were lucky enough to extend our layover and stay in Honolulu for a couple of days... boy do I wish we could have stayed forever. As a newbie to the islands, The Laylow was the perfect home base for our time on Oahu. Of course, we spent most of our time wandering back alleys leading to the beach, soaking up the sunshine atop our towels and laying in the sand while the waves crashed at our feet. Even so, I was always super excited to return back to our hotel.

I stumbled upon The Laylow's insta-feed while frantically stalking anything that might prepare me for the awesome three day Hawaiian vacay ahead and was immediately smitten. Mid-century modern meets island vibes are right up my alley and I knew we needed to book a room ASAP. A cute little coffee spot for my morning java, an epic pool and the Hideout (a rooftop bar / restaurant with ahhh-mazing Hawaiian style eggs benedict) sweetened the deal.


Our room was comfortable with two king-sized beds (perfect for jumping) and came equipped with a ukulele for strumming and a basket of goodies to get us in the island spirit. I definitely enjoyed the pineapple soda and squirreling away sweet little branded post cards to send home or display as a reminder of our trip.


Perfect pool sitch? You bet!

Taking a trip to Waikiki? I couldn't recommend The Laylow more!
