Ilikai 818 - Condo unit 818 worked out perfectly for our week-long stay in Waikiki for our daughter's wedding! I found the Ilikai condo website while searching hotels and airbnb homes....and knew it would be the right fit for us. I sent the link to my daughter, who had also spent hours searching and immediately booked a unit here as well. She let her future in-laws from Australia know about it and they booked two more units. This made it so easy for us to have "girls only" days, immediate family days, the whole wedding party meals, etc. by just meeting down in the lobby at designated times.
EVERYONE loved this place! We got to see two other rooms, also very nice but Unit 818 was the perfect fit for us.
My husband, adult son, and myself shared the unit. Absolutely loved having the sliding door between beds & living area for a bit of dressing privacy. There was plenty of room for storing clothes in drawers, hanging in closet, alot of open shelves in the bathroom. My guys like to cook, so we found a grocery a few blocks away to stock fresh fruits, breakfast items, snack items, drinks and cooked breakfast every morning, enjoying it on the lanai. (The unit was missing a cutting board; we picked one up so it has one now) We had everything else we needed right there.
The view is unbeatable; location great for picking up bus, rental car, getting out of city to explore. The night of our daughter's beach wedding, where the limo picked us up and returned us to the Ilikai, we all had the chance to return to our rooms to refresh, then meet in a private room in the restaurant at the top of the building. BEST view of the city, and the food and service were fantastic for a "special" meal.
I would definitely recommend our unit 818 for its flexibility for guests (the sofa folded out to a comfy bed for our adult son....2 small children could have slept there; the TWO full beds and the sliding screen just gives alot of flexibility for sleeping arrangements) I would recommend the Ilikai condos in general to anyone visiting the area.
