The Hawai’i Department of Health is investigating two confirmed cases of Legionnaires’ disease in Waikiki. Both Legionnaires’ disease cases were guests who stayed at The Grand Islander by Hilton Grand Vacations. 

The source of the bacteria and extent of its spread are under investigation and the Grand Islander is cooperating with the investigation. The first case of Legionnaires’ disease was reported in June 2021 and the second was in March 2022.

State Epidemiologist Dr. Sarah Kemble encouraged guests who stayed at the hotel within the past two weeks who develop symptoms of the disease to seek medical attention and contact the Hawai’i Department of Health.
