Room Selection at the Hale Koa

Room Selection at the Hale Koa

We've stayed at the Hale Koa a number of times and always select the older Ilima Tower as it's closer to the ocean than the Maile Tower. However, we've heard that the rooms in the Maile are far superior to the Ilima. The bathrooms in the Ilima Tower are quite dated, is this the only difference? We always stay on the Hilton side of the Ilima Tower and it's very nice to sit and watch the ocean without any street noise. Thoughts, anyone?

We were at the Hale Koa last March for 10 days. We go there about every 2 years. The first time we stayed at the Hale Koa we were placed in the llima Tower (we did not realize there was a difference in room quality). The next time we stayed at the Hale Koa, we were placed in the Maile Tower. Now, we always request the newer tower (Maile) While the rooms are the same size, they are just nicer in every aspect (carpeting, fixtures,etc.) I must note we have not stayed in the llima Tower for some time. In the Maile Tower, there is an outside elavator that leaves you on the ground floor next to the adult swiming pool - not a big difference in distance from where the elevator in the llima Tower leaves you. There are ocean view rooms in both towers.
