Stayed at The Ilikai in Honolulu for a week in March . It's a wonderful solid old style hotel . It must of been magnificent in its prime , it's now celebrating its fiftieth year anniversary . . 50 years it's a little tired but still in very good condition . The foyer is classic and beautiful . The views are amazing . There are three sections so views from your apartment depend on which way your balcony faces . We had a lovely view of the lagoon and the Friday night fireworks where other apartments face the marina or the front street . Also the apartments can differ on many levels , whether or not you have booked thru the hotel or private condos . Some are renovated fully some a little and some not at all . So getting a nice one is abit of luck . They have a lot of lifts maybe as many as six so waiting for a lift is quick . We went to the bar and grill and had an excellent fish lunch . There is always a doorman at the front lobby . There is a fully stocked shop also in the lobby which is handy and a coffee shop downstairs as well . The pool is always full no matter when you go there but the lagoon and beach are only a five minute walk and much nicer anyway . The balconys are a good size to sit on and have a drink in the afternoon . The apartments have kitchens so are great to prepare light meals , don't think I would be making a roast but a sandwich or salad they are perfect for . Beds comfortable and air conditioning is good . Lovely outside seating area and gardens are well kept . A lot of people live permanently at The Ilikai so the regulars are usually by the pool or sunning themselves . It has a great relaxed atmosphere and it's in a perfect position . I would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: Make sure you get a good view and try and get a renovated room

We stayed at the Ilikia for 12 nights in condo 1718, which was booked though Waikiki beach rentals. We had no trouble with this company.
The condo was very clean and well fitted out for our stay. We had a fantastic view, as mentioned in previous reviews there is truck noise in the early hours particularly Monday mornings. We have no complaints with the condo, it really was good valve for money.
The beach closest to the hotel is not good, lots of rocks in the water, we walked further up for a better spot to swim.
The hotel is a beautiful old Hawaiian hotel with lots of charm,the hotel appears to be well maintained and the staff very helpful.
Would I stay here again maybe not, it's a bit out of the way .

My first experience with the Ilikai was as a college stutent here in the 1960's. It was the first highrise hotel on Waikiki. What's not to love about it being the setting for the original
"Hawaii 5-O" or the hotel of choice for Elvis? Modern novelist Sarah Vowell author of "Unfamiliar Fishes" stays here. Book an ocean-view room with full kitchen. Every floor has coin washer & dryer. There are five elevators. In a week's stay, we never waited more than a minute for a free elevator. The convenience store on first floor is well-stocked. One can even purchase a quarter rather than a pound of butter! This hotel is an institution and well worth the money.

Room Tip: Book an ocean view with full kitchen

The Ilikai may not be the newest hotel in town, but it has a lovely feel to the place, the reception staff were great (especially Richelle) and the location was perfect for me - walking distance to Ala Moana and Waikiki beach - with the bus stop right outside the door if I wanted to venture a little further. I will defiantly stay again.

I was looking around the HHV area for a hotel that I could afford for a week without resort fees and decided to try my first vacation rental . I'm so glad I did and was lucky enough to have this condo available for the exact dates I needed. It is as described . Everything anyone would need. The view is great ,beds comfortable and kitchen and bathroom well stocked. The owners were very responsive and accommodating . Never had any issues during our stay . We never needed a car because we could walk to Ala Moana Center and Lewers St if we needed to shop and the front entrance is a few feet away from bus stops. I like the sliding sun shade in the balcony . It keeps the integrity of the view but gave me the option to block the sun during certain times of the day . The kettle also needs to be replaced. But these minor issues won't make me hesitate to return to this place. What really puts it over the top is the Ilikai itself. The building is clean and lobby was amazing. Fresh air blowing as if you were outdoors and not too many people so you can definitely relax away from your room. I walked every morning and it was so convenient making my way from the Marina to the Outrigger and back before sunrise. I would not hesitate to recommend this condo for the room itself ,the owners and the Ilikai building itself.
