This was our first trip to Oahu. We arrived Dec 1 and stayed until Dec 12. As this was my 50th birthday, i had a whole Hawaii Five-0 theme going for the trip. :-) So it was quite exciting to find out this was the hotel where the opening sequence of Jack Lord from the orginal Hawaii Five-0 series was filmed. We had planned to stay at the hotel for 2 days and then rent a camper van to drive to the North Shore and camp for 5 days before returning to Waikiki for the final 3 days of our trip. Unfortunately, the camper van rental did not turn out but we were able to extend our stay at The Ilikai. The staff was great at accomodating us and we really enjoyed the hotel. It was clean and had a fantastic retro feel to it. The rooms were spacious. We stayed on different sides of the hotel after having to extend our stay. Both sides had views that were equally as beautiful. We enjoyed coffee on the lanai, used the fitness facitliy, walked to the mall, beaches and the military museum. Great value and history.
