Built in the 1920’s, this hotel maintains a historic feel. The rooms are basic, but small details like original doorknobs on the door, woven mats on the floor and handmade quilts on the bed make for a delightful stay. The big windows which look out onto the garden in front are a constant reminder that you are in a tropical paradise. If you are hungry in the morning, perhaps head over to the Blue Star Ginger Café, as the continental breakfast is pretty sparse, and in a fatal flaw, uses fruit trucked in from the mainland rather than local island-grown fruit, of which there is plenty. However, the baked goods do seem to be homemade and are quite good. It is a great location, right in Lanai City, however you do have to take a shuttle to the beach. As a tip, unlimited shuttle access is an extra $30/day, but I think you can also just pay $10 to ride the shuttle, and even if you have to pay per ride (but the $10 might cover the entire day), you will probably come out ahead. The Four Seasons Lodge at Koele is walking distance, and it is really fun to just walk through the lobby and out to the gardens. The lobby is sort of Indiana Jones-esque, with high wood ceilings, high-back chairs with coffee tables made out of huge logs, and two fireplaces. The restaurant has venison on the menu, and the garden is also the start of an amazing 5 mile roundtrip hike to Koilokoi Ridge.
