After reading review and staying in Oahu a few times we decided to make this local hotel our stay for the 10 days. We were upgraded when we got there to a 1 bedroom suite, nice surprise:) We ended up on the 16th floor with a view of the canal and partial ocean.
The parking in Waikiki is terribly expensive and it was so nice to have a hotel not charge. The spaces are tight but we had a mid car and it fit fine. We were there 4th of July week and found a spot every night.
The hotel is older and the rooms could be updated but they were very clean and the everything worked great.
The hotel staff were so helpful, everyday we left they let us take towels from the front desk and beach matts. Every person I came across working there said hello and was very friendly.
The location is perfect for walking to almost anything in Waikiki which we did every night.
The lei making class was free and so much fun.
One night we left the front door cracked I guess and a security guard rang our doorbell (yes they have doorbells) and let us know. I felt very safe at the Ilima:)
We have stayed at the bigger resorts in Oahu and they are so packed and elevators take forever. I would stay at the Ilima every time over the big hotels.
