The Hawaiian and Tiki hotels and motels of the 1950s and 1960s had this great tradition of commissioning a cool water color painting showing an artist view of the hotel grounds. These paintings were then reproduced as postcards available to the hotel guests.

I have collected quite a few of these over the years and added some of them to the individual hotel threads here on TC. I thought it would be nice to put these little pieces of art together in one thread so that more could be added as they surface.

Lets start with the Hawaiian islands. Many of these look be be done by the same artist but few of the postcards have the artist name on them.

A classic, the Kanaapali Hotel in Mauai

The Outrigger Hotel at Waikiki Beach.

The Keauhou Beach Hotel

The Kona Hilton

The Naniloa

Switching styles a little, the Kauai Surf

The Breakers

A more modern looking Sheraton Maui Hotel

Slightly off topic, the Lihue Shopping Center

An interesting one from the Kalakauan in Waikiki with interior/exterior renderings.

The Waikiki Outrigger

And The Fijian, not Hawaii but still cool looking.

Next installment will hit some mainland Tiki hotel/motels.
