We don't particularly like Waikiki. We stayed one night on our way to Kauai. I knew of the Ilikai from when I lived on Oahu. It was quiet and we slept well. The service is what impressed me most. From the porter to the front desk to the concierge, we were well taken care of.
We got a very good deal by booking a mountain-view 2-bedroom suite with the 60-day advance purchase option on the hotel's website. Their price for a 2-bedroom suite was far less expensive than anything else I found. We had great views from our two balconies on the 43th floor and could even see the harbor by Ala Moana Park. The kitchen had no stove, but it had a microwave. We weren't planning on cooking, but we did have adequate dishes for breakfast. There were two televisions--one in the living room and one in the master bedroom. The dining room table had seating for six. On the down side, the wall of the guest bedroom is composed of sliding panels. It is not sound proof and may not offer the privacy that one would want.
Had we stayed longer, we would have walked the 10 minutes to Ala Moana shopping center. To get to the far end of Waikiki (e.g., where St. Augustine's Catholic Church is), allow at least 30 minutes by foot.
We received coupons for free pancakes at the restaurant, which we didn't use. We did go into the Kona Mountain Coffee shop on site, where they let us sample their coffee for free.
