Was able to be close to my family, who was staying in a Condo.

Staff was able to assist with value info re best way to get to other places of interest as we did not rent a car this time. Parking has always been expensive as well as finding a place to park. Was able to upgrade to an oceanview room, for an additional fee, and made the stay very pleasant.

Save your money. The Circle Island Tour is not worth it. Boat rides and the PCC are more bang for the buck.

Excellent couples getaway

We stayed for 7 nights at the Ilikai and it was a great experience. We were upgraded to an ocean view room for the first 2 nights and had a mountain view room for the last 5 nights. The views were great and room spotless. The comments about the rooms being large are absolutely true, both rooms we stayed at huge. The pool is rather small but why go to the pool when you have the Hilton lagoon right outside. One down side about the location is that it is not central to Waikiki nightlife, it's about a 10-15min walk to central Waikiki, that or you can take a trolley for 2 dollars to get you there. For some this may be a plus, since this area is a little quieter. The staff at the Ilikai are also very friendly, overall a great stay.

Not worth the money!!!!

Booked this hotel w/ the roundtrip HA package from Aug 3 thru Aug 7. The location is great as it is near everything and within walking distance of the beach. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing going for this hotel. First off, if you arrive earlier than 3:00 pm you might have to wait to check in. The staff did not have our room ready and we arrived around 12:30 pm. When we finally checked in, our room was facing the 'mountain view' so you hear a LOT of traffic even with the windows shut. The bathroom was disgusting as you can see mold growing from the walls. The WIFI did not work the ENTIRE time we stayed there, valet parking is $25/day if you rent a car and to top it all off -- the elevator was down the day we were leaving. NEVER STAYING HERE AGAIN!!!!!!
