The hotel was built in 1902 by (surprise, surprise) Alexander Young, a Scottish-born Honolulu businessman who had made a packet in sugar mills and as the General Manager of the Honolulu Iron Works. The hotel opened for business in 1903 with 300-rooms at Bishop and Hotel Streets in downtown Honolulu. W Somerset Maugham stayed there for about 3 weeks while visiting Hawaii. Sadly you cannot.
please let me, Tom Moore, know.
