So for those who do not know the Ilikai is a mix of hotels and condo units. The condos are owned by many different people so it really is a mixed bag here. My review is about the overall facility and NOT about the unit we rented. Why am I making the distinction? Simply because my experience with my unit... More

We actually rented a condo through VRBO. The hotel is located by the harbor. There is a restaurant in the hotel with standard restaurant goof, nothing outstanding other than it didn't cost an arm and a leg and for that reason we had breakfast there most days of our stay. The hotel is updating the rooms that they rent and... More

Just returned from five days at the Ilikai. Here are the pros and cons. Pros: Spacious rooms, although not the advertised 600 sq. ft. unless you include the large terrace. Nicely redecorated. Excellent and very quiet air conditioning. Comfortable beds and bedding. No tub, but large shower with plenty of water volume. Friendly staff. Good on-site restaurant on ground level.... More

We have stayed here every year for the past three years, most recently in January 2014 and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Location, location, location! I agree with a previous reviewer who said this hotel must have been magnificent in its prime. Sure it's 50 years young but it's an absolute ripper! Book through Waikiki Beach Rentals - a... More

Hello all! My wife and I stayed here 1 night (03 Oct.2013) in preparation for our transpacific cruise on Celebrity Solstice. This was a very unique hotel downtown Honolulu. In the back of the hotel, they were filming Hawaii 50, which I thought was pretty cool. There is a lagoon out back and then there is the beach. Glorious!!! The... More

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... More

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... More

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'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... More
