W Honolulu Diamond Head Extends Summer Packages

The W Honolulu Diamond Head has drummed up a few lovely packages to entice visitors this summer. With its off-the-beaten path location, Bali-chic lobby dホcor, ultra-comfy rooms and proximity to Kapiolani Park, we're steadfast fans of this mega-hip Oahu dwelling.

The first package, entitled "Whirlwind Weekends", offers a W tote bag stocked with a W Hotels beach towel, solar-activated spray sunscreen that is chock full of hydrating antioxidants (say that 10 times fast), caffeine molecules and aloe, and other beach-bound goodies. In-room, guests will find a complementary CD with signature "cool" W tunes (think Billy Holiday remixed with Verve) and certificates for two cocktails, which can be enjoyed on your private balcony or saddled up at the Diamond Head Grill bar.

A second package entitled "Wonder Women" is geared towards the fashion-conscious weekenders arriving in Oahu. The W Honolulu Diamond Head has teamed with Bobbi Brown cosmetics to offer women guests a white tote bag filled with hot new products like "Shadow Basics" eye kit, a "Pink Sugar" mini brush kit and "Shimmer Brick" lip kit, just for starters. Also in the bag is a copy of Brown's new book, Living Beauty, where she shares the secrets that led to her beauty empire.

High-rollers should inquire about the W Honolulu's presidential suite: It's a spectacular top-floor (yes, the entire floor) pied-a-terre with 360 degree views off 3 immense balconies, and an office with picture windows that face the Honolulu skyline. Dホcor is comfy Indonesian chic, with a full-size kitchen (perfect for entertaining) that looks onto the rolling waves that lap Kaimana Beach.

The special rates for "Whirlwind Weekend" and to future "Wonder Women" begin at $305 per night and are valid through November 18, 2007. Rates for the W's top suite range in the $4,000 per night region.
