What time is check-in?
Check-in is 3:00 pm. We will accommodate early check-in based on availability. Check-out is 12:00 noon.
Is parking available?
Because we are in a historical district, parking is offsite; just across the street. We do have a loading zone in front of the hotel, where you can park for short periods of time. Parking is complimentary with room rental.
Where can I book snorkeling, SCUBA, sunset-cruises, submarine rides, parasailing and whale-watching?
Just a few steps from our front door, you can book all of these from commercial vendors at the harbor. We will be happy to make recommendations.
What is there to do in town?
There are art galleries, museums, a variety of restaurants, a magic show, Ulalena, a musical production about the birth of Lahaina and two luaus all within eight blocks of the hotel. Directly across the street there is a movie theater.

Temperatures do not vary much, ranging from 65F-85F year round and Lahaina experiences about 340 days of sunshine per year.
