President and Chief Executive Officer, Government Affairs, The Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii

Iíve been a member for nearly three years now, and The Plaza Club has become an invaluable resource in conducting meetings and functions. The planning and execution of events by Club staff is almost always seamless and flawless. Because of the many events The Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii holds at The Plaza Club, the professional and accommodating staff understands our expectations and can respond and troubleshoot any situation at a momentís notice.

My favorite aspects of the club are the convenience, professional and friendly staff and ambience.  I often bring non-members who remark on the exquisite experience of the club. Iíd recommend The Plaza Club as a meeting or events venue for anyone interested in holding a first-class experience downtown.

In the past year, The Plaza Club has been transformed into the perfect trifecta of business, networking and entertainment. I go there often, not just to see my clients and hold employee meetings, but to make new contacts and connect with other senior-level business leaders in Hawaii.

Many local business leaders rely on The Plaza Clubís expert staff to organize breakfast and lunch gatherings, but its pau hana happenings and special events are Honoluluís best kept secret. The view is unbelievable, and since the total renovation of the Club, where no detail was overlooked, itís my favorite place to unwind after a long day. 

I enjoy spending time with other members, and I truly like the people who work there to make the club such a special place.  Meanwhile, the location canít be beat!

In addition, I often enjoy the variety of social events The Plaza Club organizes for the members. From the wine tasting and trolley rides to the sake events and cooking classes, there truly is something for everyone. 

I would recommend The Plaza Club to all of my business associates and friends.

The Plaza Club is my favorite place downtown to meet clients and friends for business or social occasions The staff is warm, friendly and serves its members in an efficient and professional manner. They truly demonstrate what it is to have a caring heart. Additionally, the Clubís sweeping panoramic views coupled with the excellent cuisine that blends the best of east and west cultures makes every dining experience a memorable occasion.

I often start my business day at The Plaza Club, reading the newspaper while enjoying my morning coffee. Additionally, I often bring business partners here because the quiet and tranquil environment provides an excellent venue for meetings. The club is so convenient for anyone who does business downtown. Not only is the building centrally located, but parking in the building is complementary after 5 p.m. and extremely reasonable for a two-hour breakfast or lunch meeting.

I participate in a variety of social events that are planned by the social committee and management of The Plaza Club. Events such as The Jazz Night, wine and food tastings and the culinary classes are among my favorite offerings. It is a wonderful place to unwind after a long day and share a glass of wine with friends.

The amenities of wireless internet, personal concierge service, private room meeting spaces and member events fulfill the needs of the most demanding business professional. It is for all these reasons that it has and continues to be a privilege and a pleasure to be a member of The Plaza Club for nearly twenty years.

Iíve been a member of The Plaza Club since it opened in 1979. The convenience, the ambiance and the camaraderie of the membership canít be beat. I truly love the club.

The convenient downtown location makes it the ideal venue for business and social functions. The state-of-the-art visual capabilities, breathtaking panoramic views, tastefully appointed private dining/function rooms, superb cuisine and impeccable service make The Plaza Club second to none. I especially like the refreshed ambiance since the renovation, which lends itself to holding business meetings in a quiet, dignified atmosphere. The friendly, professional staff are always attentive to my every need. My guests and I are always welcome, whether Iím conducting business, attending one of the clubís many excellent social events, or simply stopping by for coffee and pastries. I never hesitate to take my business associates there Ė in fact, I use the club weekly to hold business meetings.

I belong to other clubs, but The Plaza Club fills a special need Ė itís truly become my second downtown office.

The Plaza Club is a very special place to me! I have been affiliated with the Club for the past 20 years and have developed so many wonderful business relationships and personal friendships over the years. Fellow Members and I have watched our businesses, communities and families grow in Hawaii, on the mainland and globally. We have celebrated significant milestones in our professional and personal lives at the Club - from hosting and sponsoring important corporate meetings for clients and special company gatherings for employees to memorable family weddings and anniversaries, baby's 1st birthdays and grandparent's 80th, graduations and reunions, and lots of heartwarming occasions in between.

The Club is my "home away from home" - to entertain business associates, family, and friends or just to kick back and relax after a day of meetings or while waiting for the workday traffic to pass. It is an ideal location and venue for breakfast and lunch business meetings in downtown. But my favorite time is "pau hana" time at the Cub. I've enjoyed hundreds of beautiful sunsets and witnessed skies transform into a sea of Honolulu city lights from the Club's Sunset Lounge. The panoramic view is amazing during the day, and so elegant at night. The spectacular views and world-class cuisine in such a private, intimate setting enhanced by gracious servers create an ambiance that sets The Plaza Club apart from other establishments.

The Club is great for business and social networking, meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends. I especially enjoy the special events - wine tastings from regions around the world, Chef's cooking classes, and holiday themed events throughout the year. It's all about enjoying life with the special people in your life.

The Plaza Club has provided a lifetime of special memories for me - it is truly my "home away from home." If you haven't visited recently, now is a great time since it was recently renovated and revitalized to meet the growing needs of its members. Honolulu's legendary business club is evolving and bringing new energy to the heart of downtown. I welcome you to join us for a special event, or better yet, consider Club Membership.

A taste of Aloha with class and a professional flair describes The Plaza Club to a tee. The Club provides an excellent value, and the quality of service is outstanding and consistent. In addition, the staff maintains a sense of Aloha.

My wife and I have been members for four years, and often participate in the cooking classes, Jazz Nights, and wine tasting events. I often enjoy a pau hana cocktail or dinner with friends, because The Plaza Club is a wonderful place to unwind after a long day.

When traveling I almost always take advantage of the reciprocal agreements The Plaza Club has with other private clubs, to try new golf courses and other private club restaurants.

In fact, the availability of services including the Signature Gold and Island Golf Society programs, at such a reasonable cost, is one of the most valuable aspects of membership.

IĎve referred many people to The Plaza Club, and continue to do so because the staff always impresses with the service and the wonderful atmosphere.

Senior Vice President, Hawaii Medical Assurance Association (HMAA)

I belonged to The Plaza Club for 15 years before business took me to the mainland. When I came back to Honolulu in 2011, one of my top priorities was to rejoin the Club, because it serves many of my business needs so well. I re-established my membership less than a month after my return.

I really enjoy the ambience and convenience of The Plaza Club. Whether Iím hosting a breakfast meeting, rewarding a staff member with lunch for work well done, or just meeting a client for coffee, I know I will receive quality service in a professional setting. Staff members greet me by name, and the view is unbeatable.

One thing I particularly like about The Plaza Club is the flexible meeting space, which can accommodate a group of any size. I can hold a small breakfast meeting or large luncheon, and I know I will receive warm, attentive service. The private dining room buffets also ensure the meal moves more efficiently than in a large group-serving situation. The rooms are quiet and conducive to good discussion. The Plaza Club also offers a wide range of AV services, which makes it my favorite place to conduct off-site business meetings.

One of The Plaza Clubís best-kept secrets is the complimentary coffee, tea, pastry and cookie offerings. Why stand in line for expensive coffee at a crowded downtown Starbucks, when one block away I can enjoy a gorgeous view in a quiet, comfortable setting complete with complimentary coffee and tasty treats for mid-morning or afternoon meetings?

Although I mainly use the Club for business purposes, from time to time I also like to take in some of the special events it schedules. I know many Hawaii business leaders who use these events as entertaining and networking tools.

Iíve referred dozens of people for membership in The Plaza Club. Whether you work downtown or not, itís the perfect place to meet clients or business partners in a convenient, impressive, tranquil setting. You simply canít beat it.
