Anthony Laurino redesigns Shoreline Hotel Waikiki

Following the opening of Coconut Waikiki Hotel, Joie de Vivre Hotels is introducing Shoreline Hotel Waikiki, its second property in Hawaii, marking the company's expansion outside of California. Formerly known as the Seaside Hotel Waikiki, the reimagined property will be re-launched as Shoreline Hotel Waikiki after the completion of major renovations.

Located near Waikiki Beach, the 135-room property offers its guests proximity to both beachfront and area hotspots. After the property’s renovation, the hotel will have an open-air lobby and layered room spaces.

Inspired by 1970s architecture and modernism, Shoreline is eyeing to offer a new look envisioned by designer Anthony Laurino. The Art Deco-inspired palette, seen throughout the interiors and exterior façade, utilizes natural tones and materials with accents of dusty sea foam and warm tangerine.

Highlights of the property include the collection of custom furnishings by Eric Brand, and nature photography in every room by local artist Michele McCarthy. Guestrooms will have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, mini fridges, microwaves and private balconies with views of the cityscape. The hotel’s top floors include four suites with views of sea and city, and skyline views are nearly standard for every room.
