Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Waikiki Marina Resort (11 - 21 October, 2012). The Staff were exceptional; providing friendly and professional service. We felt so comfortable and welcome during our stay! We also believe that the Ilikai Bar & Grill is one of the better kept secrets in Waikiki! Wonderful food and atmosphere!!! Perfect place for a little down time with friends! Loved the Hotel location, and felt that the parking fees were a fair return for the excellent valet service and added convenience. Highly recommend to all! Hope to visit again in the future!

Room Tip: Ocean Views are wonderful; city view is very nice also, and the Lanai may be cooler in the afternoon...

The room was very nice. Bed was very comfortable. The view was the most beautiful view that you could ask for. This was our first time to Hawaii and it was great. Would recommend staying here. Great value. Loved the location as it was not in the main downtown Waikiki, but close enough to walk or jump on the Waikiki Trolley. Can not say enough about this room.

By far above standard room with wonderful staff that welcomes you and makes you feel special throughout the whole stay. Depiste roadside construction resulting in detours and a little noise, the stay was great and will do it again and again. Very quick access to the shopping center and even the freeway out of town.

I spent my birthday week at the Waikiki Marina Resort, and I had the time of my life. The property is well maintained. The staff was helpful and accomodating. Moreover, the rooms were great! I had an ocean-view room, and the view was spectacular! I was also holding a room on the side facing the downtown for my family, who ended up be unable to come at the last minute. So, I alternated between the two rooms! This is definitely a property that I would stay at again and again and again!

Room Tip: I had a room on the ocean-view side and a room facing the downtown area. The room on the ocean-view...

We just came back from a week long stay at the Waikiki Marina Resort which is located at the Illikai Hotel. The location is very central between the Ala Moana shopping Center and central Waikiki. We opted to "Go Green" and housekeeping came everyday to change out the towels and take out the trash. Our room (5th floor) was a good size with free wifi and the balcony had a view of the city. We took advantage of the kitchen to make our own breakfasts before starting the day. There are multiple ABC stores within a 3-5 minute walk where you can stock up on basic supplies i.e. cereal, milk, juice, sunscreen etc in addition to reasonably priced souvenirs. There are a lot of restaurant options within a few minutes walk and the Hilton Hawaiian Village is right next door with a man made lagoon and free fireworks on Friday night. The concierge helped us rent a car for a day that we picked up at 7am right across the street at the Alamo Rent a Car and brought back the same day saving the $25 overnight parking fee at the hotel. It was a very pleasant week and the resort was a good value. We will be back.

We visited Waikiki in August 2012 and stayed at the Waikiki Marina Resort (Part of Illikai Hotel building). The value and service we received was excellent. From the valet service, baggage service (included in room cost) to the check in and room - the check in process was outstanding. Our room was a large Studio with bed area, living area and nice kitchen / counter / barstool area. The room was impeccably clean and even with the "Green Service" housekeeping the room was kept clean - new towels and garbage service every day, full service 1/2 way through stay. The location of this resort is excellent - a short 3 minute walk to the Hilton Lagoon, close the the shopping mall, and walking distance to the middle of Waikiki along the beach. Shuttle / bus stops in front of hotel for all transportation links. The $25 per day valet parking seems steep in price, but with the congestion of Waikiki it seemed the norm for self parking was at least $20 per day so the extra $5 per day for Valet was not unreasonable.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary while at the resort. Flowers I ordered were waiting for us in the room and the staff of the resort also took the time to give us a small gift and card signed by all for our anniviersary - way beyond what was expected - thank you!

Our check out was extremely easy and the bell man handled our luggage once again (tip included in room price by voucher). We were sad to leave and highly recommend the Waikiki Marina Resort to all.
