Hawai'i Convention Center (Rooftop)

Although the Hawaii Convention Center usually doubles as the Sydney Airport, other locations within the HCC, such as this 2.5 acre rooftop space, have been used to depict other locations in the Lost storyline. The room used in White Rabbit is actually just below the roof area, in the 321-328 wing. The room is #328, also known as The Waikiki Room.


The convention center was built in 1997, opened in 1998, and has 1,007,000 sq. ft of space (93,000 sq. m) and cost over $200 million. It has been voted the most beautiful convention center in the world by International Association of Exhibition Management. The ground floor exhibit hall has 200,000 sq. ft of space, and features a 2.5 acres tropical rooftop garden. Hawaiian and polynesian motifs are to be found throughout. The project to build the convention center was the largest "design to build" project in the history of the state.

Episode 1x05 White Rabbit Lost Virtual Tour

Jack finds his father Christian Shephard's hotel room in Australia. Note the patio roof, and the colored building in the view to the left. The automatic sliding curtains are not typical of most hotel suites.
The meeting room, #328, also known as The Waikiki Room.

A wider view shows the true height of the room is nearly double what it appears to be in the episode.

The buildings in the background match the view from the roof of the Hawai'i Convention Center.

Quicktime Virtual Reality panorama looking down from the roof area to the lattices above the 321-328 wing of the convention center. Note the matching skyline. You can also see two Ala Wai Canal locations. Towards the mauka (mountain) side of the canal, you'll be able to see the bridge where Sun walks into Jin, and towards the other end, just to the left of the yellow crane, you can see the intersection where the doctor accosts Sun who is walking her dog Popo, as seen by the apartment tower and pink building. Also, obscured by the treeline at the near shore of the same bridge, is the Ala Wai Promenade from Michael's meeting with Walt. Farther to the makai (oceanside) end, you'll see the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, as well as the twin towers of the Hawaii Prince Hotel as seen from Desmond's photograph.
