2009 Preservation Award by Historic Hawaii Foundation awarded to Minatoishi Architects for the publication, “Assessment of the historic architectural resources within the proposed Royal Hawaiian Hotel & Sheraton Waikiki Master Plan” (Waikiki, O‘ahu)

The Royal Hawaiian Hotel and the adjacent Sheraton Waikiki Hotel underwent a substantial renovation in 2008. As the second oldest hotel structure standing along Waikiki Beach, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel’s historic and cultural value is unsurpassed. Special attention was given to highlight elements that were critical during the design and construction process. Minatoishi created a detailed 100-page assessment of the historic Royal Hawaiian Hotel included a historical background summary and that was used to help guide the design process.
