The Old Wailuku Inn at Ulupono has been recognized as a 2012 Fodor’s Choice selection.

"We're especially honored to receive this distinction this year," says Innkeeper Janice Fairbanks, "because in September we celebrated 15 years in business. It's a privilege to serve our visitors and offer them an experience of Hawai'i as it used to be."

Owned and operated by Janice and Tom Fairbanks and their daughter Shelly Harris, the restored 1924 "Queen of Wailuku homes" was opened as The Old Wailuku Inn at Ulupono in 1997 with seven distinctive guest rooms; in 2002, three additional guest rooms were opened in Vagabond's House, next door to the inn's main building. Since its opening, the inn has been listed on the Hawai'i State Register of Historic Places and has won numerous top honors.

The inn is located at 2199 Kaho'okele St. Complete information at is available at
