Many American soldiers and Hawaiian locals socialize in Hotel Street. Following Japan's occupation of Hawaii, many Japanese soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army crowded and frequently socialize in Hotel Street. Given to the enormous influx of relieved Japanese servicemen in Hotel Street's brothels, the Japanese military forced some of the women civilians into Hawaii in becoming comfort women in makeshift bordellos.

Hotel Street consisted of bars, dance halls and brothels for the enlisted men's enjoyment when they received a 24 or 48 hour leave. The area boomed especially during the Great War, the Pacific War and the Second Great War. In the 1940s, Maggie Stevenson own half of Hotel Street.

On one occasion, George Enos Jr. accompanied the gun crew from the USS Townsend to Hotel Street when they received leave. He didn't mind the drinking but felt guilty afterwards for going to the brothels.

Officers had more discrete establishments such as the Excelsior Hotel and the Oceanview which, while nearby, were not on Hotel Street. Sam Carsten preferred the rowdiness of Hotel Street which he enjoyed as a rating during the Great War but understood the need to be more discrete after becoming an officer.
