“My Favorite Hotel in HNL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed in an oceanfront room (680 sq ft) newly-renovated, on 5th floor, with kitchen. So quiet, so relaxing, and so well-appointed. Excellently located back from the hectic scene of the beach and traffic on Ala Moana Blvd. We long for another chilled out week in this place, our fave accommodations on Oahu.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

Clean, comfortable hotel in a great location near to shopping, sea and sand. Minutes walking distance to downtown Honolulu and designer shopping stores and eateries. Family friendly, not for pets. Parking across the street behind Red Lobster for $20.00 per day.

I have been twice to the Ilikai and found the hotel to represent the true aloha feeling, yep its a classic and there are newer kids on the block but this is one of the grand dames of hotels and you feel it when you pull up to the driveway. the views are stunning the staff warm and delightful and they play vintage Hawaii 5-O in the lobby. never hesitate to return, the place just keeps getting better.

Room Tip: the hotel is in the shape of a giant Y 2/3 of the rooms are facing water, but all have nice views. S...

We had a private vacation rental here that works out excellent value compared to a hotel stay. You get the hotel facilities for less money. The only thing missing is wifi and room service. If you want to be away from all the noise of downtown Waikiki then this is a great spot, but it is a bit of a walk if you are constantly wanting to dine etc down the other end of town. Hotel is a little dated but everything in Waikiki generally is.

Booked this with Marina Hawaii Vacations for 6 nights in July 2014. Best view you can imagine, especially to see the 4th of July Fireworks. The view is over the lagoon and marina. Jaw dropping stuff! The unit is very well decked out, with all appliances needed. Only issue is it gets very hot and air-conditioning didn't handle it at all. Clean and spacious and very quiet.
The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms great.
Walking distance to beach, ala moana and all other essentials in Waikiki.
We used the lagoon for swimming, canoeing etc and the beach further over for swimming.
Only issue was that it took over an hour to check in after a 11 hour flight from Melbourne, so that was a big disappointing. This was in the level 2(?) office.

Room Tip: Go for the corner rooms, great view and quieter.

Staying at the ilikai Hotel, is fabulous, right in the middle of Waikiki, Absolutely gorgeous pool, and only 5 minute walk to Ala Moana!! great location, right on the beach. Every 15 minutes the Pink Line Waikiki Trolley bus stops right outside the hotel, Absolutely an experience to remember

Room Tip: Beach view is best. but the city view is just as good, especially at night time

We spent 8 nights at the Ilikai and really enjoyed our stay, this is our 2nd time there and would definitely recommend it. Its only a couple of minutes walk down to the beach and a 10 minute walk to Ala Moana shopping centre, which has great shopping and restaurants. The walk along the beach to the heart of Waikiki took only 20minutes. The views from our condo & lanai were magical, we overlooked the marina and the ocean and the condo was clean and tidy, with sliding doors between the bedroom and living area. The bistro/bar of the Ilikai was really good and the service and food spot on. Meals were very well priced and so were the drinks.
