We got an apartment here on the 5th floor via Hawaii Vacation Properties (not thru the hotel directly). Check in was seamless as we just went to the room and entered a 4 digit # into the keypad. Great not having to deal with a key/ card for whole vacation. We didn't have a car so didn't use the parking...

My wife and I rented a Condo off the VRBO website and it was perfect. Doug the owner was excellent to deal with always answering our emails promptly with any questions I had before I arrived. The Condo was clean and a very good size for the two of us. Our unit was on the 9th floor facing the ocean...

Well, it is not easy to choose right hotel in Honolulu, especially if you are dozen of thousands miles away... Still, during the booking process as well as during my stay I understood that could not wish better! Extremely helpful personnel, the ocean view was indeed ocean view, clean, quite, ocean almost next to door - what else to wish?...

Going to Hawaii has always been a dream and we had the chance to go twice, so we can say it is a winner! Staying at The Ilikai feels like home! Close to shopping, restaurants, on the beach, bus station, you do not need to rent a car! It is really not that expensive and if you want to explore...

The Ilikai is located at the west end of Waikiki. We rented a condo from a rental agency. We liked the easy walk to AlaMoana, the short distance to the beach out the back, disliked the inconvenient and expensive parking. Pool was good but not great. I know there are better units than the one we rented so just shop...

Aloha, Glad to hear you enjoyed the location of the Ilikai in proximity to major shopping and variety of beaches and parks. Although our valet parking may appear pricey, please understand this is some of the most expensive real estate in the world and there are alternate choices with self- parking on the lagoon side of building.

I liked not being in the busy part of Waikiki. It's located close enough to shopping, dining, and fun without being in the most congested part of the city. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Great room with multi-views!! Had a really great stay! We would absolutely stay here again!

We had a lovely studio room on 15th floor and booked through Waikiki Beach Rentals. Room was well equipped, clean and perfect for what we needed - kitchen for grabbing quick breakfast etc. By far the biggest downside was noise- our room was at the back over the multiple lane road and other buildings ventilation/air con units.
