First stay, we can only recommend it.Great location if one wants to stay a little away from busy WAIKIKI centre.Only one bus stop from the "Ala Moana", walkable.Reasonable priced and very friendly frontdesk and housekeeping staff. Nice view from the 22nd floor ocean side.When in Honolulu we'll definitely stay at the ILIKAI again. Travelled as a couple.

Room Tip: WE enjoyed the oceanview from the 22nd floor (2240)

We stayed here during a stopover on our flight from New York to Australia. Not our first time to Hawaii but our first time at this hotel. The hotel has both good and bad points but overall it is a great place to stay.
First the good:
Room size - had an ocean view room on 23rd floor - view of the beach can't be beaten and the balcony is generous - great place to have breakfast or just relax with a drink to watch the ocean. The room itself had a marvellous armchair for watching TV - overall just a very comfortable environment for winding down. A fridge, microwave and coffee maker are also there if you don't want to go out. The bathroom had a bath, separate shower and toilet which these days you don't find in more modern rooms. The furnishings were in good conditions and housekeeping was spot on. Downstairs the lobby area has a cafe selling takeaway items and a shop with provisions for the room.
Location: A 10 minute walk will have you back in the main restaurant zone. At night this is definitely a positive as the main street is very noisy especially on the weekend. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from Ala Moana shopping centre which also has many dining options and great shopping.
Now the negatives: There are few options for eating within the hotel - you need to go father afield. The entrance may also be a problem for some - there is an elevator but it is tucked away so you need to ask where it is if the stairs are difficult. As for the escalator at the front - it is either under maintenance or turned off most of the time. (I have been here on 4 different occasions in the last 6 months and this has been the case)
Overall, I would recommend this hotel - it is rather like staying in someone's home - familiar and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are worth the money for the great view of the beach.

We arrived at Honolulu airport at 21.30 after a long flight from LHR, UK. We had slept on the plane from LAX, so at least we had our wits about us.
The hotel were expecting us & also knew we had requested a high room facing the sea.
What a stunning view of the Ala Wai Yacht Harbour, awaited us the next morning.
The only downside was that the outdoor 'snack bar'at the hotel had stopped serving breakfasts in February and we had not been informed. Compensation was a coffee shop on site, also a supermarket, but as we only had a tiny microwave and coffee perculator, without any cooking utensils, the microwave was of no use. We decided to explore and found a small pub on the harbor corner, which served very acceptable breakfast specials with 3 eggs!
Our room was cleaned daily and there was laundry room close to the lifts on our floor (22) The corridor carpets looked new, the hawaiian trees were soothing.

The starting point for the Red Line Waikiki Trolley, was outside the hotel.

I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best views and the lifts were never full and we didn't have to wait for o...

My Husband and I have stayed in Hawaii 10 times, and all but the first time, (when we knew nothing much), we have stayed at the Ilikai Hotel. From the room cleaning staff, to the Valet Parking team, the front desk, (thank you Joli), and the General Manager, Terry Dowsett, we have received nothing but friendliness, and respect, and helpfulness. My Husband and I decided on the spur of the moment to renew our vows while we were there this time. Knowing nothing of what we had to do, we decided to ask Terry for his help. He went out of his way (and he is a very busy man), to find us a Minister, and to try and get permission for us to marry at sunset at the Lagoon. He wasn't able to do that for us after trying for a few days, but we found another perfect spot 4 minutes drive away, called Magic Island. From a certain spot, where we renewed our vows, you could see the Hotel in the background, the Lagoon, and all of Waikiki down to Diamond Head. It really was magical. Terry also organised our traditional Hawaiian wedding Leis for us. The rooms are huge, beds huge, (we actually had to get rid of a few pillows so we could meet in the middle) lol !!!! The entertainment on a Friday night downstairs is lovely, the traditional way the torches are lit every night and the conch shell blowing, all adds to the overall atmosphere at this hotel. The gardens and flowers are always well tended to, with the mini waterfalls flowing, and the tree with the lights wrapped around and through it. We made use of this beautiful space in the courtyard to take nighttime shots after we had dinner at Sorento's at the very top of the hotel on our special day. The addition of the coffee shop downstairs was a wonderful idea. They could actually make a proper iced coffee, yay !! We feel as if we are coming home every time we come back to Hawaii, and especially the Ilikai Hotel.

Room Tip: If you have a family, try for a room with a kitchen. It makes staying there so much cheaper. The Lag...
