Mahalo for your kind words. It is refreshing to hear what an excellent stay you had with us. I agree that our location at the beginning of Waikiki is top notch and we are glad you enjoyed your clean suite and on-site dining options. We sincerely look forward to accommodating you again.

Being owners at Shell's property on Kona, we decided to extend our stay to visit Pearl Harbor Oahu. We booked our vacation 3 months in advance through the Shell Owners line and, based on other Tripadvisor recommendations and the disingenuous marketing content on Shell's site we decided to book here for the extended weekend. Needless to say its a bust.... More

Sorry to hear that we failed to exceed your expectations as an owner. Our 500 sq ft studio suites with full kitchens in the legendary Ilikai tower typically provide a comfortable home base for visitors exploring the urban wonders of Honolulu. I feel that they provide a much better experience than a standard hotel room. It sounds like you were... More

I love this part of Waikiki, it's quieter and not as hectic as down towards Diamond Head. I stayed at the Ilikai 25 years ago and the property is still very lovely! My accommodations here were great.

So glad you enjoyed the comforts of our all-suite vacation ownership resort on the quieter and less chaotic side of beautiful Waikiki. Having a full kitchen does come in handy when having your friends over for dinner. We are in the process of upgrading our televisions to flat panel types and also looking forward to room renovations next year. Thank... More

I booked this place through Waikiki beach rentals. It was very nicely remodeled and had a city view. The only thing/headache was the parking. TIP: DO NOT park at the hotel Valet. The price is ridiculous! You can park at the lagoon parking in the back of the hotel and the walk is the same distance as to the valet.... More

The apartment was very spacious, with a full kitchen (no dishwasher though) and coin laundry on each floor which made our 10-day stay more comfortable. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Housekeeping was supposed to service every 4th day but they ended up coming more often as we'd come back to find our beds made and towels changed, which was... More

The Ilikai is iconic and the nice people at Shell Hospitality made it possible for us to stay there in comfort. We had a city view which when up high (18th floor) was not bad at all. The noise was minimal and the view was actually very good. The room was comfortable. King size bed with a queen sleeper sofa... More

So glad you had a wonderful time at our legendary resort. I agree that the City View studios are pretty stunning and the noise is not too bad.
