Best Spotting Hotel at HNL

Tue Feb 21, 2017 2:29 am

Hi Airliners.net! I'll be traveling DTW-MSP-HNL in a few weeks and want to know what the best hotel for a view of airport ops is for HNL if at all possible. After arriving in HNL I am planning on flying out relatively early the next morning to LIH so anything close by would be sweet! Thanks!

The only hotel I can think of that offers any decent view of HNL itself would be the Best Western Plaza - but you'd need to be on a high floor facing the right direction. I welcome any better recommendations from a more experienced spotter, but to get a good overview, try the top deck of either the International parking garage or the industrial park building/garage (I've only used the latter, YMMV). You can also head to Lagoon Dr by the end of 26R, but it's not within easy walking distance from the terminal.

If you're interested in extending your stay, the federal prison actually has a great view of the ramp!
