I really enjoy hanging out at The Wyland Waikiki and I’m not just saying that because I do the public relations for the hotel or because I’m a fan of Robin Graf, the general manager, golfer, sports nut, rugby player, social media explorer, and chief blogger responsible for Drop In To The Wyland Waikiki, who I can tell you is truly passionate about his guests and the experience people have at his hotel.
It has everything to do with the ambiance and friendliness of the staff who are always courteous and helpful when I’m on property, the guests who are always smiling and having a good time whether at the pool, in the Chill Room, at the Wy Bar, or just roaming the lobby, and just the overall calming feel of the art and sounds of water that surround you throughout the property. It’s hard to describe, but I’ve heard from a lot of people who share the same sentiment as I do. It’s just a nice place to be and there’s always something going on.
Last night was no exception. Wyland was back in town to open the new Wyland Studio Store at the hotel. It’s a beautiful space with his colorful artwork covering nearly every inch of space on the walls. It was good to see Wyland again and to have more than 50 of his fans and friends, including Kim Taylor Reece, come down for the celebration. He signed books, sculptures, and even painted a turtle piece right before our eyes. Wyland is an amazing artist and a great guy doing some wonderful things to raise awareness about protecting and preserving the environment. It was a great evening at the hotel and I’m glad I was able to be a part of it.
So if you’re looking for a great place to stay or hang out while on Oahu, The Wyland Waikiki is a good option. The hotel may not be on the beach, but what you will find here is good value and a guest experience that will have you coming back again and again.
