I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place! We celebrated our 34th Anniversary and they made it even more special with a box of chocolates, sparkling apple cider and a sweet note. The room was spotless, great view, comfy bed and a great value! We will be returning for sure.

I really enjoyed our two night stay. Our king room with kitchenette was clean and inviting. The bed was a little too firm for my taste but I could see others not minding. We had a street side room but I didn't hear any noise from the street only an occasional honk or two during the day. At night the...

Amenities are minimal . Grocery stores within walking distance. No dishwasher in our unit. Must wash your own dishes. Ugh!! Learned later, they do have units that do have dishwashers . Make sure you read the small instruction booklet first, no matter how tired you are. This hotel has timeshare owners, permanent residences and hotel guests . All have different...

Hotel is in prime location with gorgeous views easily accessible to everything and parking on site if you feel like getting out of the city for further exploring. Very quiet despite the downtown location. Would recommend and stay here again without hesitation.

We rented a private condo on the fifth floor. It was nicely decorated and had a well equipped kitchen. We had nice views of the pools, lagoon, and partial ocean view. The balcony had a table and chairs. Since this was a private residence, you do not contact the hotel for any concerns. The owners leave instructions in each unit...

Waikiki Resort at the Llikai is located in nice area . It is next to Marina where you could enjoy sunsets and close to Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Resort. There are a lot of things going on in this area-you could enjoy fireworks every Friday and lagoon next to Hilton if you are with kids. Beach next to Hilton is...

We enjoyed this property! Let me break things down. First off, this hotel is a hybrid property that features units for rent through time share owners and brokers, the hotel itself and ones that are occupied by permanent residents. I believe the building is featured in the original theme song video of Hawaii 5.0 Location: The property is located on...

This is a multi-use property- we stayed here as part of a time share exchange but there is also a regular hotel and condos here as well. The location is near the ocean and most of the tourist sites. There is laundry on each floor, which is very convenient, and also a grocery store on the main floor with pretty...

We have stayed numerous times in this property and felt very comfortable on on vacation here. Very reasonably priced and close to everything. Only downfall is the balconies; too small. Felt safe and secure!
