Hope Lodge Hawaii is on 251 South Vineyard Street, not Vineyard Boulevard. We are located near the corner of Queen Emma St., around the corner from an Aloha Petroleum gas station.
From the airport:
Take Nimitz Hwy east toward Waikiki. Nimitz will become Ala Moana Blvd.
When you reach downtown make a left at Alakea St.
Alakea St. becomes Queen Emma St. after crossing Beretania St.
Stay in the right lane and make a right on Vineyard Street just before the Boulevard. If the gas station is on your right you’ve gone too far.
