Older, excellent hotel in great Waikiki location”

Location, Dining Choices and Room Choice

1. Location- downtown Waikiki with view of Diamond Head and bay; short walk to Ala Moana Mall and other restaurants and shops in area. 2. Dining Choices- simple fare with view of beach at Cinnamon's to 5-star dining at Sarento's. 3. Room Choice- we had a room on the 25th floor with view of beach, bay and Diamond Head; it was recently renovated and had a nice little kitchen area with sink, stove, microwave, coffee pot, and full size refrigerator. I first stayed in the Ilikai Hotel in 1972. It was a great hotel then and still is in my opinion. It is older but they have begun to renovate rooms. And, as I stated earlier, it is hard to beat its location, central to everything in the Waikiki area. If standard American food is your thing, Red Lobster and Outback are a one minute walk away. In the back of that same building with a view of the marina is the Chart House Restaurant - a 4/5 star restaurant that I have been visiting off and on since 1972, which never disappoints. We have stayed at the Ilikai for our last two trips to Hawaii and will again, I'm sure.

Ideal accommodation ”

We loved the location towards the end of Waikiki Beach - an easy walking distance to all the amenities as well as Ala Moana Shopping Center. The suite was exactly as advertised, with fabulous views and a well equipped kitchen. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. We’ll definitely stay at The Ilikai next time we’re in Honolulu.

Excellent hotel in Waikiki”

Location, access to public transportation and value

We stayed in the hotel; there are also vacation condos available. Our room was clean, spacious (larger than most) and comfortable. There are plenty of choices for dining in the immediate vicinity. Parking is expensive in Honolulu, usually about $30/day and the Ilikai Hotel is no different. However, their valet service is excellent and we never waited more than 5 minutes. If you don't have a car, access to excellent Honolulu public bus transportation is right outside the front door of the hotel. A laundromat is only three blocks away at the end of Ena Rd, where you can do your own laundry or avail yourself of their drop/wash/dry/fold/pickup service. The Ala Moana Mall is only a 15 minute walk away. Waikiki beach is just behind the hotel. We will likely stay here again.

I got married in Oahu and had my parent visit from England and my husbands visit from NZ. All 8 visitors stayed at the Ilikai and we loved it!!! Close to the lagoon, beach and shops. Very convenient. The staff we mature, more than helpful and made our stay welcoming and fun. A bar downstairs with fun holiday-makers and cheap yummy food. Rooms were big with great views and cleaned on time thoroughly. We all said that we would revisited Honolulu and stay at the Ilikai again.

location, service, quiet, clean, well managed

hi all we had a fun time here, better than a resort. it's at the marina end so not crazy busy but still walking distance to ala moana shopping centre to the left and the shopping district to the right. it's opposite ihop, next to the hilton, the lagoon and the beach (go to the italian restaurant at the top of the ilikai on friday night and ask for a fireworks table). onsite is a small coffee shop, market and a decent grill and bar. i really liked it. they upgraded us instantly to ocean view with kitchen, i didn't even have to ask at check in. wireless in the room. comfortable bed, fantastic. and the schlocky history of it featuring in the opener of the original hawaii 5-0 was awesome, they trade on it of course, playing endless episodes in the lobby lol recommended.

Excellent hotel in Waikiki”

Close to Waikiki Bay in center of Honolulu. Walking distance (1 mile or so) to Ala Moana mall. Outdoor café for simple fare and gourmet dining on top floor of hotel. Lots of dining choices in area. Parking is expensive but no more than most places in Honolulu. Shopping/ tour shuttle bus stops in front of hotel. We always stay here if we can't get the Hale Koa.

It's like the 60's but kinda cool!”

Big Room and easy access to the beach

The Ilikai looks a tad dated but it's kind of cool in a retro way. We had a "mountain view room". I think that I would have preferred "ocean view" but it was a bit of a jump in price. Good location at the western end of Waikiki Beach. You can easily walk to Ala Moana Shopping centre and it is about a 10-15 min walk to the main part of Kalakuana Ave where the majority of Waikiki restaurants and shops are. Or you can catch a USD$2 "trolley" right out the front if you want to get places quicker. The room was huge but bathroom kind of small. But it didn't bother us too much. Reception and the concierge were helpful with directions and car hire. There was a minor issue with the wifi password, but it got sorted out fairly quickly...(depends who you ask on reception) My partner enjoyed the easy access to the surf break out the front of the Hilton. Perhaps not as close to everything that I would have liked but overall a good place to stay for those on a budget.

Older but excellent hotel on Waikiki Beach”

Location, excellent room, dining

Excellent stay. It is our first choice when coming to Honolulu from Guam. Although it's been around (spent my honeymoon there in 1972) for a while, the rooms we have stayed in are fresh, roomy and tasteful. Tremendous location; walking distance from Ala Moana center; restaurants galore in area; beach is only a couple hundred yards behind the hotel, with shallow lagoon and nice pool. Dining at Sarento's on the 18th floor is spectacular as is the beach side view (and glass elevator). The hotel has an outdoor café also overlooking the bay. Minimal choices there but the food is good. WE never availed ourselves of their bus service (we rented a car - pricey parking as always in Honolulu) but heard others compliment it. Our room had range, refrigerator, sink, coffee pot, dishware and utensils. Good for families or longer stays. Our primary reason for always staying there is location. We will stay there again, I'm sure.

Spacious room

Not at the heart of Waikiki but close to Ala Moana shopping mall. It's about 10-15 mins walk to Ala Moana shopping centre. Ala Moana beach is just opposite of the shopping centre. It's a lot quiter than Waikiki and just as lovely with clear view of Diamond head. The trolley stop is just infront of the hotel which is convenient. The staff are friendly but it took a long time to check in. Only valet parking available at Ilikai and it's $25 per day for those planning to hire a car in Oahu,

Great place to see Hilton fireworks!”

The view of Hilton fireworks, large space with kitchen and sofa, just across from the rental car office

The room is clean and spacious, and has a modern kitchen and nice view to the ocean. Even though it is a little away from the Waikiki central, it wasn't a problem for us as we could have a nice walk along the beach to the town center. ABC Store and the rental car office are just across the street. Each floor has a washing machine and a dryer. Both of them require 10 quarter coins, so you'd better save the coins. If the machines are occupied, you can use ones on other floors. We had the famous pancake with guava sauce and egg benedict at Cinnamon's on the ground floor with a very nice and friendly waitress. For Japanese, I recommend you take room slippers with you. We stayed there on Friday night and had the best view to the Hilton fireworks from the lanai. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay!

Not true ocean view”

We're disappointed with our room when we arrived. We paid extra for our room with Ocean View and a bath tub. When we arrived we got a partial ocean view room, Room 2434. Our direct view is the hotel opposite and if we can see the ocean less than 35 degrees north east. I wouldn't call this ocean view. We also need a bath tub for our young travelling infant. We complained to reception, but they said we booked through agoda, we have to deal with Agoda. We would stay more central to Waikiki next time. The bus shuttle is not very flexible, only once every hour. Hertz car rental is conveniently located and as well as access to the lagoon. I want some credit back from Agoda please.

As we had stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian village week before we had walked past and thru it, location for us was ideal, close to last minute shopping and rastaurants. Good value for money though room was a bit worn and window unit ac just about managed to cool the room. Would stay again though!
