Enjoyed our time at the Ilima. The full kitchen in the room was very useful, although we did not use the stove. It was fully equipped had we decided to cook. Instead, we just used the refrigerator and microwave for leftovers and snacks. We enjoyed the Friday night fireworks from the 10th floor sundeck thanks to a staff recommendation. Can't praise the staff enough--they were always friendly and willing to answer questions and give directions. Room was very clean.
Our fourth floor room had a lanai, but was too low to have a view. Two blocks got you to the beach and there was a street type market through Duke's Lane on the way to the beach. Bus stop was one and a half blocks away in front of the Food Pantry where we picked up water, snacks, etc. Our grandson and I enjoyed making the nut leis. That is a very nice amenity, and free. We thought we got a good rate for our room and were very satisfied with our stay. Would definitely stay again if we have the opportunity to return. We met a lady while making leis who told us she had been coming to Honolulu annually for 27 years and had always stayed at the Ilima. That speaks very well for their staff.
