Operational until October 2012 according to news reports here in the Hawaiian Islands. Apparently the hotel will then be demolished. The historical features "will be preserved as a learning facility" according to owner/landowner Kamehameha Schools, Tiki Central context is here

I have stayed there. I loved how it literally hugs the coast. While it does not have a beach per se, there is a grassy lani and a gravel coastline suitable for beach chairs. Virtually every room has an ocean view and the blue sea brushing against the volcanic rock is stunning. A shame.
