We stayed at the Ilikai for 4 nights before we headed to Ko'Olina to stay at Disney's new resort the Aulani. This hotel is a bit smaller than other hotel/resorts along Ala Moana and Waikiki and it can seem a little out dated depending on what you consider out dated. It seemed to be a bit of an older hotel but to be honest, we had a great time. We had a suite at the Ilikai and it was more than we could have asked for. The room was huge it had a kitchen and an amazing view! The hotel is located at the end of what I like to consider "hotel zone" but on the bright side is closer to Ala Moana shopping center. The trolley which I think its $3 or $2 stops right in front of the hotel. The service was great and the valet was very helpful in terms of directions and recommendations. Also, on Fridays aka "Aloha Fridays" they have fireworks and the fireworks go off in the cove at the Ilikai so if you don't have a view from your room just head on downstairs and there it is. I don't think I've ever been that close to fireworks but it was such a memorable experience! All in all this hotel is great and is a bit cheaper than the other hotels but then again I think its because it seems to be a bit older and it is further from the "center" of it all like but isn't that far of a walk plus its nice with the Hawaiian breeze.
