Internationally-recognized in the opening sequence of the original Hawaii Five-O television series, the Ilikai Hotel & Luxury Suites is truly renowned as a Waikiki landmark. The iconic oceanfront hotel is situated on the Ala Wai Yacht Marina at the edge of Waikiki and just two blocks to the Hawaii Convention Center and a short stroll to Ala Moana Center and Beach Park. A modern paradise blended with nostalgic Hawaiian-style hospitality, guests enjoy two hotel swimming pools, coffee shop & cafe, fitness center, and local favorite Dave’s Hawaiian Ice Cream. All accommodations feature full kitchens and a private lanai.
We booked a 1 bedroom Luxury Suite for our daughter and her family. We booked a 2 bedroom Luxury Suite for us and 3 others. The 2 bedroom was intended to be the hang out/gathering spot. What a great stay! We would stay there again in a minute. The views from the balconies were spectacular, the rooms were quiet, it was close to the beach as well as shopping. This was such a great hotel.
While I wish Hawaii would get rid of all of the Covid nonsense it wasn't so oppressive in the hotel and certainly not on our balconies where we spent a lot of time.
We looked right down into the Marina and saw Sea turtles in there almost every day. We also saw Spotted Eagle Ray's in there (3 at once). Snorkeling in the ocean was easy to get to and a blast (get swim shoes as the rocks can be sharp). This was an incredible experience and I highly recommend it.
Location & Paradise in Waikiki
(Las Vegas, Nevada)
Paradise beautifully located in the beginning of Waikiki! We enjoyed our stay but with a few drawbacks: dirty/outdated carpet, the tv didn’t work, and no complimentary ice on any floor (like majority of hotels provide). The ice would have helped out a lot being that we went to the beach almost everyday and liked to have had a cold beverage to drink after swimming in the sun.

Family Hawaii Trip
(Las Vegas, Nevada)
This trip was a delayed Birthday celebration for my son & husband due to the pandemic! First time we ALL traveled together on a family vacation! We had a wonderful time! The weather was perfect considering our over 100° weather in Las Vegas the whole time we were here in Waikiki! Thank you!
A good environment and room/suite configuration. The staff were helpful and friendly. A solid facility and it looks good. The bed mattress was not comfortable and the plumbing is showing its age. I would stay there again. There is room to upgrade and seek a higher level of comfort.
