We never need a reason to book a ticket to Hawaii, but a great package for a suite in a great resort on Oahu never hurts. In this case, pack your bathing suit and blue suede shoes to take advantage of a fun offer at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
As a nod to the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, the setting for the 1961 movie Blue Hawaii is inviting his fans (and anyone else) to stay in the 14th floor suite where the legendary performer was also in residence on several occasions. It’s even perfectly timed for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis movie, premiering on June 24.
Between 1957 and 1974, Elvis stayed in the 2,500-sq. ft. King Suite in the hotel’s Ali’i Tower overlooking Waikiki Beach. And the property is adding to the sense of place by serving up his favorite snack on arrival—a peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich, naturally—as well as tossing in an “Elvis in Hawaii” gift book, cocktails for two, and a resort bar and breakfast for two overlooking the lagoon where Elvis flew in on a helicopter back in 1973.
The package starts at $1,471 per night for a four-night minimum stay and is available through December 15. And while we can’t promise sleeping where Elvis once did will conjure any of his everlasting mojo in you, it sure can’t hurt to try.
