“We are proud to introduce Autograph Collection Hotels to the island of Oahu with the opening of The Laylow, bringing a new, culturally rich perspective to the brand’s expanding portfolio of passionately independent hotels around the world,” said Julius Robinson, Vice President and Global Brand Lead, Autograph Collection Hotels, part of Marriott International.
The Laylow has 251-rooms and is located above the Kuhio Avenue in the heart of Waikiki. The hotel’s creative design was led by Fritz Mesenbrink and Jeremy Pelley, co-founders of Official Mfg. Co. of Portland, Ore.
“Hawaiian midcentury modernism is the heart that beats at the core of The Laylow,” says Mesenbrink.
“Architect Vladimir Ossipoff’s signature work, the Liljestrand House overlooking Honolulu, exemplified that design movement in Hawaii and was the jumping off point that inspired the interior design and furnishings as well as the exceptional character of The Laylow Hotel,” he adds.
Oahu is a U.S. island in the Central Pacific, part of the Hawaiian island chain and home to the state capital, Honolulu.
