One huge caveat that Expedia ought to fix, there is a huge fee added on. I don't know if it is per night or per stay, but it costs an extra (undisclosed under fees in the listing) $100 to stay here for the night. So I had to pay almost $200 for the non-refundable night, and there are much nicer places you could spend the night at, for Less than that.
The biggest plus for this place is the location. The beach was just across the street, but I didn't go. It was just a night for me.
If you go in understanding that this is a small studio apartment then you won't be disappointed if your goal is to be near the beach, but not pay resort prices.
There's a spring mattress bed and an old style pull out couch. Only a couple of extremely thin pillows on the bed. 94 the pull out comma but there are other couch pillows. No good views from the room, but the 10th floor View at the Sundeck is beautiful. Well worth it. So is the room something I would suggest to anyone? Not if you're used to traveling in any sort of style, but it does beat a hostile, but again be aware of that huge fee. The other amenities mentioned in the ad do exist. They do provide some cheap hotel shampoo and soap. Also a stove and fridge that you can cook a little bit on if that is what you desire. But don't plan on preparing a large meal for any group of people. It really is for a couple of people to sit on the couch and eat.
It is on-the beach condo and we could enjoy the beautiful ocean view and fireworks at HIlton on Saturday evening from the room. Very close to restaurants and shopping area. Better to request high floors when you make booking.
The Ilikai used to be the hotel of choice for me. I stayed there for several years, but the decline of the hotel turned me away and I began staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. This trip, the Hawaiian Village was sold out and I chose to the Ililkai. I was pleased to see that the hotel had done some renovations recently and upgraded their rooms. The room was very nice and decorated very nicely. It was very attractive.
The biggest problem I see is that they only have two bellman for a period of six hours. The rest of the time there is only one bellman for 800 rooms. This could cause delays in checking in and checking out.
The staff was pleasant and helpful. Overall a very good stay.
As the title suggests this our third time at The Pacific Monarch and the view and room were always first rate. We go to Hawaii annually and this is the best place weve found. The price is also reasonable. The only minor complaint is the parking lot is small, you definitely want a sub compact
