Did you know… this glorious high-rise, just minutes from downtown Honolulu, opened in 1955 and matured to the largest of the Hilton hotel chains! It was built by the same industrialist who built the Hoover Dam!! Elvis Presley stayed in room 14A, for the first time, in 1957!!! So here’s some more fun facts about Hilton Hawaiian Village.
