Hawaii Student Suites at White Sands Hotel


Hawaii Student Suites at the White Sands is located within the White Sands Hotel, a 90-room, courtyard-style, low rise hotel at 431 Nohonani Street. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of the Waikiki proper, just one block from the International Marketplace and a few blocks from the famous Waikiki Beach and Kalakaua Avenue. This Waikiki neighborhood is a cultural hub filled with hotels, apartment buildings and hundreds of shops and restaurants. Just a little over a mile away is the well-known Kapiolani Park (home to the Honolulu Zoo) and the Waikiki Shell, a concert venue. A few blocks further are the Honolulu Aquarium and the world famous Diamond Head Road, which circles Diamond Head Crater with its stunning cliffs, ocean views, and surf beaches.

A short drive or bus ride away in the other direction will bring you to the Ala Moana Shopping Center and adjacent Ala Moana Beach Park. Ala Moana is the largest shopping mall in Hawaii and the largest open-air shopping center in the world, housing over 250 retail stores and restaurants, including such places as Macy’s, Nordstrom, Gap, Forever 21, Barnes and Noble, and more. On the other side of the mall is Ala Moana Beach Park and Magic Island, a 100-acre free public park with a wide sandy beach, big grassy areas, banyans and palm trees, food concessions, showers and restrooms, tennis courts, a music pavilion, and areas to picnic and barbecue.

The White Sands is close to bus lines, making for easy access to our many Hawaii-based schools: University of Hawaii and its various community colleges like KCC and HCC, Hawaii Pacific University, Chaminade, Heald, Global Village, Academia, and ICC – just to name just a few.

Student life at the White Sands is hotel-living in a tropical garden setting, complete with weekly housekeeping service. All rooms are studios and come complete with all standard in-room amenities, linens/bedding, a mini refrigerator, microwave, free internet and cable, and air conditioning. A 24-hour front desk, swimming pool, sundeck, hot tub, ATM, coin laundry facilities, and limited parking for a fee are also available on-site. In addition, Hawaii Student Suites provides Student Life Facilitators who will stay in touch with you and keep you informed of HSS sponsored student events such as BBQ’s, pizza parties, hikes, beach days, workshops, etc.
