Arrived early and room was ready, a real benefit after the red eye from Sydney. Very clean and well-apointed room. Great location close to Ala Moana Center, and all bus and trolley services. Taxi from airport is easy and good cost.

We absolutely LOVED our 15 day stay at the Ilikai. We had a group of 7 with children and booked a 2 bedroom suite on the 24th floor. It was breath-taking! There was a small kitchen, living and dining combo, plus 2 beds and 2 baths with a wrap around lanai offering ocean and downtown views. We got to watch... More

I would stay at this hotel again, primarily because they do have a kitchen available (which I need when traveling with my family), and the room was large overall. The ocean view was a definite ocean view - with a marina view - although it was blocked by the other 1/2 of the building, so that was unfortunate and lessened... More

Very pleasantly surprised by this place. The bellman was our first impression with very warm and welcoming customer service. Our room was beautiful and the housekeeping g staff were superb with fresh linens every day without the card saying if you want fresh towels throw them on the floor. I appreciate that very much! My only complaint is the front... More

What a great time....room was great and so was the view. Got to watch the sunset on my balcony every night. The staff was friendly, we loved the free DVD rentals and lemon water. This is close to lots of restaurants and the beach. We will be back.

Aloha Astrid909! Thank you very much for choosing to stay in one of our Luxury Sunset Ocean View Junior Suites which are all on the 22nd-25th floors. Your reviews of Cinnamon's are certainly consistent with what most people have to say when they try their guava chiffon or red velvet pancakes. Not only are they great for breakfast but also...
