A friend and I spent 10 days at the Ilima Hotel (Apr 5-15). This is not a luxury hotel and it doesn't advertise as such. It is, however, in a great location only a short walk to the beach, shopping, and restaurants,
We were on the 5th floor, with a view to the canal and the hills beyond. The room was large, clean, and adequate for our needs. The decor is dated but I didn't come to Honolulu to spend a lot of time in the room. We enjoyed having a full kitchen and generally had breakfast and one other meal at the room (generally on the balcony).
The 10th floor sun deck is a great place to relax, read, and enjoy the sun. The pool (ground floor level) is small but adequate as it was never busy. There is also a few pieces of exercise equipment - we didn't use it as we spent most of our days walking.
The last three days we rented a car and were able to use the free parking. That was definitely a bonus!
The staff were courteous and helpful. There is a concierge on site most mornings - he took the day of his 88th birthday off when we were there!
We definitely enjoyed at the Ilima and wouldn't hesitate to recommend as a great place to stay.
