HONOLULU - Ala Moana Hotel is proud to announce that it is the official hotel of the 35th Annual Na Hoku Hanohano Awards and Music Festival, taking place from May 25 to 27, 2012, at the Hawaii Convention Center. The Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hokus) is the culminating event of the month-long Mele Mei 2012, celebrating the unique music of Hawaii.
Ala Moana Hotel's Pakele Lounge will host the Hokus After Party on May 27, from 10 p.m. to midnight, immediately following the 35th Annual Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. The party will feature local group Li Hing Mui.
Ala Moana Hotel is also extending special Na Hoku Hanohano room rates starting at just $109 in the Kona Tower for anyone who is attending the Hokus or Festival. To qualify for the rates, available May 23-30, 2012, simply show an identification badge, ticket or receipt for any of the events to the front desk before checking out. Room rates are nightly for single or double occupancy, plus tax. Rooms are subject to availability.
"Ala Moana Hotel is proud to be the official hotel sponsor of this prestigious event," said Marty Milan, director of sales and marketing for the hotel. "The staff is excited and looking forward to extending our hospitality to honorees and the many fans, friends and ohana who will stay with us and extend their support. I hope they don't mind if we're 'starstruck'!"
"We are extremely honored and grateful to have Ala Moana Hotel, once again, as a valued partner of the Na Hoku Hanohano Music Festival and Awards," said Kuuipo Kumukahi, HARA president. "We all love staying there - not only for its convenient location, but also for its well-appointed rooms and the gracious hospitality of its staff."
Ala Moana Hotel was the original home of the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards in 1978 when winners included Melveen Leed and Cecilio and Kapono. Eventually, the Hokus grew too large for the Ala Moana Hotel. Its current home is the 35,000 square foot Kalakaua Ballroom at the Hawaii Convention Center, across the street from the hotel. Ala Moana Hotel is overjoyed about this reunion with the Hokus, and the chance to once again be an official sponsor for the awards.
