It's definately a dorm. There's a small take out sushi place just inside the courtyard I went to a few weeks ago and it was clearly occupied by students who were milling about.



Hawaiiana Sushi. Byob. Sushi & Tiki sounds like a good combination to me.

Another postcard circa the 1970's from the Hawaiiana Hotel.

Let me clear up some of the rumors on this stream, since I am currently living at the old Hawaiiana Hotel. It is in fact closed, and has been for a few years. It is owned and operated by a private company called Hawaii Student Housing which is neither an ESL school or used specially for UH students or Chaminade. Residents call it simply, Beachwalk, and any student registered at any school for any program can live here. We have residents of a variety of ages. I actually take online courses as a part time student from a school in Pennsylvania and yet live here. As long as a proof of enrollment is supplied then they will allow you to live here. The property was also split into two. The back part (Saratoga side) is a Korean Boarding school and it is totally separate from Beachwalk. The Sushi (still called Hawaiiana Cafe) is rated one of the best in Honolulu on Yelp and I actually just had some for dinner. We still also have many tikis around the property. As a resident for about eight months, Beachwalk (The Hawaiiana) has become a fabulous part of my life in Hawaii. Such a great layout and cozy feel has made our international student community into a true Ohana. Many people stop by the lobby and say they used to stay here and talk story and stroll around the property. Hope that clears things some up. Loved the old brochure!

Nice first post, Laura.
I hope you continue to contribute.
I am pleased to hear that the Tikis and the buildings remain.
I, too, stayed there as a hotel and loved it.
However, being so close to the shore, and to Lewers, I feared it would meet the wrecking ball.
Glad it has new ownership which is keeping it profitable and therefore around to enjoy.
