The deal
The 1920s ushered in a new era of luxury with endless parties, extravagant travel, and serious fun. To celebrate the opulent year of its birth, in 1927, the historic Royal Hawaiian is slashing its rates to an amazingly low $19.27/night.

Located on bustling Waikiki Beach, The Royal Hawaiian is an easily recognizable landmark hotel with its distinctive Moorish architecture and soft rosy color. After renovations have completed this year, the historic “pink palace of the pacific” will reopen its doors on January 20, 2009 to guests looking for that luxury Hawaiian experience. Unwind in the swanky Abhasa Spa, offering traditional Hawaiian treatments and international remedies, or opt for a mai tai and a dip in one of two oceanfront Jacuzzis. Other amenities include a kids club (with Lei making and hula lessons), a state-of-the-art fitness center, and five restaurants and lounges. Take advantage of the Royal Hawaiian’s special opening package starting February 1, 2009, which is based on a 4-night stay and includes dinner for two at the new Azure restaurant. For one night only, an elegantly appointed guestroom costs a mere $19.27; rates for the additional nights start at $450.

The dollars
Based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.

The catch
Flights to Hawaii, from the East Coast, at least, are long and the cost of airfare can be steep.
