The Hilton Hawaiian is a Hawaiian hotel that opened its doors on November 30, 1991.
The hotel has been praised for its long-lasting and efficient operation, its high customer satisfaction rating and its low guest occupancy rate.
But a Hawaii judge on Monday ruled that the hotel had violated state laws that require it to maintain a 10-hour-per-day rule for its rooms.
“The rule does not require that the Hilton Hawaiian provide the same degree of security for its guests as it does for the hotels guests,” Hawaii Administrative Law Judge Mary Ellen McBride wrote in her ruling.
She noted that the rule applies to hotels that are not state-owned and is not required by state law to require security measures to be installed by the hotel.
Hilton said it will appeal the ruling.
“Hilton welcomes the judge’s order that we comply with Hawaii’s strict standards for protecting our guests, but we have a number of pending litigation challenging these standards,” Hilton spokeswoman Julie Leibowitz said in an email.
Hilton’s occupancy rate has declined by about one-third since opening.
In November, the Hilton said its occupancy rate for January was just 55 percent.
Hotel occupancy rates at hotels owned by other companies, such as Marriott, have remained stable over the same time period, according to a survey by research firm IBISWorld.
Hotel ratings from ratings agency Experian also show that Hawaii has the lowest rate of guest occupancy in the country.
Hilton, the hotel chain that operates in Hawaii, is one of the largest U.S. hotel chains.
In 2016, the company was valued at $11.4 billion, according a Bloomberg report.
