We booked a room with a partial ocean view, looking out over the lagoon, we were high enough up (Rm 2528) that we had a view of Diamond Head as well.
We've stayed there 4 times over the last 6 years and still love the hotel. New LCD TV's seemed to be the only upgrade and the upholstery on the chair was looking a bit tired as it has before.
The staff were great and the rooms are always large (600 sq ft incl Lanai). So yes we will continue to go back to the Ilikai, as it's at the entrance to Waikiki, it's far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, so you have the choice of the Waikiki beach in one direction or the Ala Moana beach in the other direction (way quieter)
We travelled in November but reserved in August, so the price was $152, the prices had gone up to ~$240 by the time we arrived for the same period.
What can I say we liked it and will return.
As an aside we flew from Bellingham on Alaska Airlines direct, price was great and service was great
