Aloha, This was the first place I performed with my first polynesian dance group back in the early 1980s. We danced every New Year's Eve for many years and were hired for private parties to dance in the ballroom at the Marriott. What terrific memories I have! I have posted a few of my personal photos during that period of time. I hope you enjoy them. Mahalo, Tiare
