I booked the Ilima for my work trip last month. Second time in 2 years. Pretty much the same comments from last time hold sway:
The Pros - 1) A Bargain, 200 bucks a night got me a suite with a Kitchenette. 2) Free Parking (though one night I was forced to park on the street and got a parking ticket. Spaces are also challenging - tight and lots of concrete stanchions to avoid. 3) Perfect proximity: Close enough to walk to all the Waikiki destinations, but not so close that you are sucked into the vortex of insane crowds and valets and whatnot. 4) Very friendly staff.
The Cons: 1) Dated. Material condition issues like a window AC unit in my bedroom that wasn't keeping up. But most nights, the breeze was so nice that I just slept with the window open.
For the value and location, budget-minded travelers can't go wrong with the Ilima.
