I've noticed a few changes happening at the CY Waikiki the past month or so. While I haven't been to the property in a while, I have interacted with it and been around the area. The biggest change, in my opinion, is the addressing of the A/C issue. When I drove past the other day, I notice most of the balconies at the property now have split A/C units on them. It appears that the wall mount units are being removed in favor or quieter split systems. This is a MAJOR upgrade in my opinion, however, the road noise issue will only become more noticeable now.
Beyond physical changes to the property, it appears the property owner (Outrigger Hotels & Resorts) has moved the property's own reservation center to India. This is very disappointing to me. Perhaps I'm wrong and just got a person with a really bad accent, but we shall see
