Waikiki hotel

I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived at the Shoreline Waikiki for the start of the Pacific Adventures dance trip. The description was " a boutique hotel" in the heart of Waikiki, and from the pictures on line, I could see it was going to be a vastly different experience from the luxurious but impersonal Sheraton that I stayed at on my last visit to Honolulu almost 5 years ago.
