My family decided last minute to go (3hr before flight) and really liked the studio. We make it work queen bed for us and pullout couch for the kids. Right on beach and Mariana. Friday's free fireworks next door at Hilton. Resort is basic but very nice.

We just returned from Hawaii. We rented a condo at the Ilikai Hotel. We thought we were renting a one bedroom condo but as it turned out we actually had one room with a bed. LOL! The room was nice enough and very comfortable. Our balcony looked out onto a very busy city street. But then again you are in... More

The pictures of the hotel on a lot of websites look old fashioned and look like the hotel has seen better days, but we were surprised how excellent the hotel actually was! Room was so comfy, great kitchen, bathroom, tv, even free wifi!! Best of all the balcony and the view. Pool was big enough for us to sun bath,... More

We stayed there for 6 nights, in a Junior Lanai Suite which included a kitchenette. The hotel was quite and the room and the bathroom was decent. The in house wifi was very good. Not many restaurants on or near the property. Its a 5 minutes walk to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.

This is a great place! You can take public transportation from the airport and just about any where you want to go. Go sight seeing, shopping, or just play at the beach. Spacious accommodations and very friendly staff.

Mahalo for the 5 star recognition. We are delighted to provide spacious apartment homes and top notch service inside of the world famous Ilikai Tower. Great tip about recommending the higher floor city views which capture the mountains and the skyline. I must agree the coffee downstairs is fantastic. See you next time!

From the outside you can only think, "Here is a hotel in need of a makeover". Balconies and outside show a lot of wear. The property is huge with 1000 rooms. Some are homes, some are hotel rooms, and some are time share units. All share the facilities with separate check in desks, etc. We found our room to have... More

Thank you for taking the time to publish a review. The Ilikai is a 50 year old legendary condominium & commercial complex in the beginning of Waikiki. It certainly can be considered a vintage gem; as well as a work in progress. We are proud to have 123 units scattered amongst the tower; although they are mostly city view. We... More

Staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had the city view which was noisy but manageable. Room was clean and beds very comfortable. Washer and dryer was great - next time take less clothes :) Trolley and bus right outside the door. I would recommend and would certainly stay again.
