Another part of my Hawaiian vacation in 2011 was spent at the Hilton Hawaiian Village (HHV). A four night stay on points would normally cost 200,000 points but as a Hilton HHonors American Express cardholder, I used a 4-night AXON award to save some points. If not for that discount, I likely would have cleared out all of my points.
The HHV is huge. They weren’t kidding when they called this place a village. With so many towers in the village, I didn’t know where to check-in. I was told to head to the Rainbow Tower, which is at the furthest end of the village, near the beach. I inquired about rooms with nice views and after some research, we were given an ocean view room in the Kalia Tower on the 6th floor. We had a great view of the Rainbow Tower, the ocean and the lagoon.
