Mandarin Oriental to open new Honolulu hotel


Hong Kong-based Mandarian Oriental Hotel Group is coming back to Hawaii as part of a partnership with Salem Partners, a Los Angeles-based investment bank and wealth management firm. The two companies will open a 36-story mixed-use tower across from Honolulu's Hawaii Convention Center in early 2020. 

The 232-unit Manaolana Place project will include 125 hotel rooms and 107 residences. The 400-foot-high mixed-use project will be located near a new rail transit station in Honolulu.

When it opens, this hotel will be the first hotel under the Mandarin Oriental brand in Hawaii since 2006, when The Kahala Hotel & Resort was rebranded as an independent property.
