Humuhumu’s description

The Polynesian Room was in the Yankee Clipper hotel, which opened in 1956. The hotel still stands, but the Polynesian Room closed sometime in the mid-'70s. It had seating for 300, and a full Polynesian floor show. The architect for the Yankee Clipper also designed the nearby Mai-Kai

. The hotel still has a nautical-themed bar, the Wreck Bar, that dates from the same time as the Polynesian Room. The Wreck bar has a window that looks into the hotel's swimming pool, and at one time the hotel had "mermaids" swimming there to entertain guests of the bar.

The wreck bar still has Mermaids swimming on Friday & Saturday evenings at 6:00. Definitely worth the trip.
