The hotel stay itself was nice but things seem to be outdated a bit at the Ilikai. It is hard when you are staying near some of the other hotels that have really nice inviting pool areas or nice shops in the main level but honestly the Ilikai had everything we needed. The valet group was so quick and very nice when we came and went. It was expensive but it was welcomed having to not park our car after long days of sightseeing and watching the soccer tournament. Ilikai felt very safe too.
