Safety problems, misuse plague Hilton bathrooms

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Mar 26, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> I read your article about two years ago saying there are two restrooms owned and maintained by the Hilton Hawaiian Village that are supposed to be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. These restrooms are rather hidden on a side street, Kahanamoku Street, which is between the Hilton's newest tower and the Ilikai Hotel. The brown doors are not labeled restrooms, but they were open to the public previously for personal use. I walk this way frequently to the beach, and twice I have tried to use them and they were locked. Well, I asked the custodian why they were locked, and she said you need a key to use them. Why was the policy changed so the public cannot use these restrooms anymore?</p>
<p><strong>Answer: </strong>The restrooms -- one at a time -- are still available for public use, but the Hilton Hawaiian Village says continued vandalism and safety issues may force it to close them both soon.</p>
