H.T. Hayashi

HTH Corporation was founded by the late H.T. Hayashi – a builder, visionary and one of the pioneers of the Hawaii visitor industry. In 1964, he first recognized the need for a hotel between downtown Honolulu and Waikiki that would offer guests a central location, near shopping, dining and popular attractions. This led to the development of the Pagoda Hotel & Floating Restaurant. Surrounded by its famous koi (carp) ponds and Japanese garden, the Pagoda is still treasured today by both local islanders and visitors.

In 1970, Mr. Hayashi acquired the Pacific Beach Hotel in legendary Waikiki, transforming its second tower into a local landmark featuring the three-story, 280,000-gallon saltwater Oceanarium – the largest in the state.
