We did not want to stay on 'the beach' and chose the Ilika as it seemed to be a bit out of the way and it was a perfect location as it the first pick up/drop off stop for the tour buses (Big Island, Pearl Harbour). We discovered we had been upgraded from a mountain view to a harbour view...

We just returned from Oahu and I have to say I can't wait to go back. We stayed at the Ilikai suites and everyone there was SO nice and helpful. We will gladly stay there again. Waikiki Beach was wonderful. I had way too many lava flow drinks and coconut shrimp but it was worth it. We went to the...

We stayed here one night and the room was a good size with a king bed and a sofa and desk as well as a kitchenette. All that was fine but it was really in need of a redo. It is the first hotel as you get into Waikiki so if you are staying a long time you might want...

We have stayed at the Ilikai 3 times and have found it to be excellent, but will admit we always rent a individually owned condo. We go through Aloha Condos and they are fantastic. The view and location for the cost is the best. We have never been disappointed, It sets next to the Hilton Hawaii village and can easily...

We recently travelled to Honolulu from Australia for our first visit. We reviewed a number of locations and booked at a condo elsewhere, at the last moment this booking was cancelled and we booked at the Illikai in a 2 bedroom unit which was lucky for us as this is a great location. You didn't need a car as everything...

Arrived at this hotel on the 3/10/13 for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. Check in was smooth with a friendly guy called rod behind the counter. When we got to our room we discovered a nice water feature in our bathroom mainly caused by a fellow resident upstairs not turning off a tap. We contacted reception and got...

We recently stayed for a week and will not be going back to the Illkai. Admittledly, we had a government rate room which included a broken down sofa/futon, steel stools, vertical blinds that didn't work properly, an empty bookcase, broken or missing knobs, mismatched furniture and a view of Ala Moana Blvd. The best part of our room was the...

Aloha, Please accept our apologies for the owner rental unit not meeting your expectations and are working directly with them to make several improvements. With any hotel I would encourage you to let management know of any concerns during your stay that allows them to offer alternate accommodations that meet your expectations, as we are always eager to satisfy!

We stayed at the Ilikai for a week and a half while on business in Hawaii. As other reviewers stated, it is a bit dated, but I think they are working on that. We had a nice, very spacious, clean room with a king sized bed. Housekeeping was excellent. The location is great if you've had enough of Waikiki--still on...

We stayed at the Ilikai hotel on 2 separate occasions in Sept. On both occasions we were on Floor 24 so the lift journey can be a bit slow!! The rooms were spacious and comfortable with everything we needed including a microwave. They are rather noisy esp on the balcony, because of the air conditioning units there and the never...

We booked an apartment through VRBO rentals, and very impressed with the response from them as well as the owner. We had an apartment on the 10th Floor, with the most amazing views out to the Hawiaiian Hilton lagoon and Waikiki beach. It was nice to watch the world go by from our balcony. The Condo had everything we required...
