I recently stayed at the Illikai for four nights.
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the room. It is a very large room with nice ammenities and very clean. The bed was really nice and the view (although the company where i booked stated ocean view) was decent. my view was blocked by my own hotel if that makes any sense. The Hotel design was so that the rooms towards the middle of the hotel have a partial ocean view. I was on the 24th floor which honestly was a little too high, although i did have a nice view of the Luau that the Hilton puts on daily. (the Hitlon Hawaiin Village is next door). The location was pretty good. I think that it is pretty much the first hotel on the strip. So, it kind of depends on what you want. If you want to be right smack in the middle of Waikiki then you might want to go further down the strip. If you want to be 5-10 minutes away and still be able to walk or take a cab to most places then this will suit you fine. Watch out for the parking prices. All the Hotels charge a 20 a day parking cost. There are nice stores inside the hotel to include a mailing service which was very resonable. Of course once you get outside there are literally hundreds of places to shop and thosands of people shopping there.
Overall I was pleased with my stay, the customer service and the quality of the room.
I would recommend this place to anyone that wants a modestly priced room in Waikiki.
