The Royal Hawaiian Resort
REMEMBER IT FROM:
“Fly over to Hawaii immediately. Check into the Royal Hawaiian and wait for someone to contact you there. If you talk to the police or FBI, I’ll be killed.”
The Angels are barely done welcoming Kris to the team when Charlie delivers his own ransom call – he’s been kidnapped while vacationing in Honolulu. The Royal Hawaiian is home base for the Angels’ tropical adventures in their most famous season premiere.
FEATURED IN THIS EPISODE:
- “ “, Season 2 (2-Part Premiere Episode)
Open since 1927, The Royal Hawaiian is one of Hawaii’s oldest and most illustrious hotels. Watch for this staple location in classic films such as “From Here to Eternity”, favorite TV series like Magnum P.I., The Rockford Files, and all those other series that inevitably go to Hawaii.
Strange that the Angels came all the way to this beautiful and historic location but allowed us only glimpses of it in their Season 2 premiere. No real interiors appear to have been used on the show. The hotel and its front entrance seem to be unchanged since 1977, aside from a new coat of fresh, pink paint and a little landscaping.
The hotel is famous for its Mai Tai bar with a Waikiki view – this explains the Angels’ crash course in Mai Tais!
