Hotel's Favourite
Have been to HI almost every year and this was our first stay here. I was a little apprehensive before getting there, but was very pleased with all facets of our stay. They even give the newspaper every morning, and give coupons for free waters and Dave's ice cream down in the lobby. Didn't have a chance but really wanted to try Pesca's (the restaurant at the top). Will definitely try on our next stay at the Ilikai!

If you are thinking of staying at the Ilikai. DO NOT DO IT! the staff is rude and unprofessional. Security guards are out to get you. They will charge your card what ever they feel like charging it without letting you know. This hotel is out to suck all your money in any way they can. Charged me $2000 for a smoking fee that wasn’t true. I followed up with the manager about the charge. And she told me to bad and that’s life. This charge was solely based off of what 1 security guard said. No video or anything else. Just off of what 1 security seen. Took $2000 from me during the holidays. Now I can’t buy gifts for my kids and dying grandmother. This place is horrible! They are out to charge you for anything they can. There are many hotels right up the road. Do not do it!

We did have a really good time. The view of our room was beautiful. The furniture is definitely dated and dirty. The location to the center is at least between 20 and 25 minutes. Would we recommend this Hotel? Yes.

Great professional service with a warm greeting & hospitality! I highly recommend this Hotel over any hotel in Waikiki The restaurant onsite was very good, and the valet parking was excellent. I could not ask for more out of a hotel overall. Thank you Ilikai for the great experience for my first time visit to Hawaii!

The Ilikai has seen better days. Rooms are tired and lack of daily cleaning is sending the quality of carpets etc further downhill. While the position is excellent the cost of this property vs much better quality properties in surrounding streets make it hard to recommend.

There's no denying The Ilikai is past her prime. We stayed in a privately owned condo. Whilst adequate for our purposes, it could do with a little TLC. But still represents great value for money at this location, with no BS resort fees. The elevators are slow, so allow 10 minutes to get to the lobby

We have stayed here many times in the last 30 years and seen many changes . Besides the view we feel the friendly staff are one of this hotel’s biggest assets.It was so nice to be back and welcomed by long serving staff at check in , by the pool and the maids who remembered us . Like other reviewers the rooms could do with a refresh but in saying that we are more than comfortable on the 22 floor . Rooms are cleaned to a high standard which is a must these days . Due to the pandemic rooms aren’t serviced every day which isn’t an issue . A request for amenities and clean towels is actioned promptly and with a smile . We look forward to returning next year . Thank you Sandra and your team for looking after us . Mahalo

We really enjoyed our 3 nights. The location is perfect as a home base for exploring the island (particularly the Windward Coast). Sunsets are scenic from the upper floor balconies. Frequently in the evenings there is some enjoyable music in the courtyard. And for fans of the original Hawaii Five-O, it is great to be here.
