HONOLULU, July 13, 2022 – The Laylow, Autograph Collection, a mid-century modern oasis in the heart of Waikiki, ranked in the top 20 Hawaii hotels and resorts category in the 2022 World’s Best Awards by Travel + Leisure again this year. The hotel received a 90.73 score rated by readers.

“We’re incredibly honored to rank on the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards list for the second year in a row,” said Robert Friedl, general manager of The Laylow. “There’s no greater compliment than for our guests to vote for us, and we are grateful to them and to all of our amazing staff who provide the utmost service to everyone who visits our hotel.”

The 2022 list includes 20 properties across the state. The score of 90.73 is in recognition of facilities, location, service, food and overall value.

Always eager to deepen the guest experience with charm and delight, The Laylow is thrilled to introduce new amenities, such as:

  • Poolside Service: Guests looking to spend all day at The Laylow’s saltwater pool will be able to indulge in savory bites and cocktails later this year.
  • Lunchtime Bar Service: For guests who can’t wait for pau hana, Hideout’s bartenders will be hand crafting cocktails for bar goers looking to cool down during the day from 11am – 4pm.
  • Local Coffee: Beginning in late July, coffee lovers can enjoy Big Island Coffee Roasters when they order from Hideout Coffee.

Unique among Travel + Leisure’s top Hawaii hotels, The Laylow has achieved fame among travelers and locals alike for its authentic, soulful vibe that comes through in every thoughtful design and service detail. Perched above the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, The Laylow blends mid-century modern with present-day Hawaiian charm. Each of the guest rooms and suites stand out with custom-created monstera leaf wallpaper, inspired by vintage bark cloth patterns. Surf nostalgia photography and art books, and an authentic, playable ukulele line the shelves.

The Laylow’s second-floor open-air restaurant, Hideout, has become Waikiki’s must-visit hot spot for live nightly music featuring some of Hawaii’s most talented artists. This is where you’ll find creative, hand-crafted mixology and distinctive Modern Hapa Hawaiian cuisine.
