The Hyatt Regency Waikiki looks all set to spread the holiday cheer with some bottled Aloha Spirit aka bottles of wine, where 50% of the proceeds goes to charity.
Hyatt Regency Waikiki
Each of the ONEHOPE Wine bottles comes decked up with a ribbon of a specific color – pink for breast cancer, green for the environment, multi-colored for autism and yellow for the troops.
Choose your color, and 50% of the proceeds from your bottle of bubbly will end up in the pockets of a charitable organization which does work in the area the color represents. Also, ONEHOPE will be donating an additional $2.00 to the Hawaii Foodbank.
You can buy the ribbonized wino at the hotel’s two restaurants – Colony and Ciao Mein, until the end of the year.
Another special uncorked by the Hyatt Regency Waikiki is the Lokahi Package, offering random acts of Aloha as a hat-tip to the nation’s 44th President, who just happens to be a Kamaaina (local).
Under this package, the hotel will be donating $44 per room, per stay to the local Waikiki Community Center. Includes oceanview accommodations and daily buffet breakfast for two.

Hyatt Regency Hotel San Francisco Holiday Lighting Extravaganza
A room in the St Regis in San Francisco
San Francisco is a great place to visit in December–the weather can be fairly mild, SPCA kittens grace the windows of Macy’s, and hotels offer fantastic deals for visitors from near and far.
At the high end, check out the ultra-posh St Regis Hotel, where the “Holidays at the St Regis” package includes gingerbread cookies and egg nog, a delivery of hot chocolate for two, and a Vie Luxe candle. Especially during the holidays I love to meet friends for a drink in the slick, gorgeous bar, and I’ve heard Remede Spa is not-to-be-missed.
Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants created memorable packages at many of its San Francisco properties, from “The Art of Shopping” getaway at the Hotel Palomar near shopping mecca Union Square to the “Naughty or Nice?” package at the Argonaut Hotel, which includes either a trip to Alcatraz or a visit to the Exploratorium science museum.
Parents might especially love the “Holiday Memory Maker” package at Hotel Monaco. Your kids write letters to Santa on personalized stationery, then receive a surprise visit from elves who come bearing milk, cookies and a bedtime story.
