Just returned from our 3 day stay at the Ilikai. Rooms are large with a large bathroom with separate toilet area with its own shower. Beds are comfortable and 4 people did not feel crowded. The hotel is very clean and staff go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. Part of the hotel is time share, but no one bothered us there. One person mentioned it to our friend and then let it drop..no pushiness. The highest floors are the hotel rooms and that was great! There is a magnificent restaurant on the highest floor. The roof is the place where the opening scene of the original Hawaii Five-0 was filmed.
We were on the opposite side from the sunset but the sunrise over Diamond Head is lovely as well. We actually were able to watch a luau on the roof of the building next door and to hear the music from it..not too loud..just pleasant. Sat on balcony and watched the surfers morning and evening.
Great little coffee shop downstairs with very friendly staff! Convenience store in lobby as well. Loved the balcony to our room.
Free internet was a bonus!! Valet parking was quick and convenient with in and out privileges.-
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and clients.
For those on a bit of a food budget...McDonalds and IHop and The Ala Moana great Shopping Mall with a food court (try the Japanese...it is fantastic!) are a very short walk away. 2 ABC stores within a block (anyone who has been to Hawaii knows about these convenience stores.)
Transportation to the main Waikiki beach is frequent and not expensive but walking is very easy.
We will definitely return to the Ilikai at our first opportunity!
Thank you to the front desk staff who were so friendly and helpful at all times.
