Wall of Fame

50 Ways to Love Kahala Add comments

Located on the lobby level just past the elevators is the Wall of Fame.  A hallway decorated with framed images of the famed over the past 50 years. "Built in 1964 as one of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton's pet projects, the Kahala quickly became a Hawaiian icon -- Liz Taylor and Richard Burton hid out from the paparazzi in a cabana there after getting married (for the first time) in 1964. It has hosted celebrities from all domains ever since. Snoop Doggy Dogg, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Clinton, the 1987 (i.e., mid-"transformation") version of Michael Jackson -- they're all up there on the hotel's Wall of Fame just off the main lobby, along with dozens of others. Some have even left love notes. Carrie Fisher: "Aloha Kahala -- the only two Hawaiian words I need to know(?!) except mahalo + love." Elton John: "What a great experience to come back to a hotel that is paradise. Thank you SO much for the care and service." Oyster.com
