Great Value Condo in excellent location

I had the pleasure of visiting Honolulu for a friends week long birthday celebration and it didn’t disappoint. The Condo was ideal for me and has great uninterrupted views over the marina out to the ocean. Amenities are close, locals are friendly and the weather was gorgeous. If you want a good value, clean and roomy condo, Aloha Condos are worth considering

The condo had everything we needed except the beach umbrella was broken. The furnishings definitely need updating, especially the wicker chair in the living room, as it is very uncomfortable. The unit was very clean and neat, thanks to the great cleaning staff that I was fortunate to meet. We were confused as to where the building was located and ended up walking back and forth between the Ilikai Hotel and the Ilikai Marina but it was probably due to not reading the info closely enough. Maybe add "above Red Lobster" to the directions for us easily misled folks! All in all, it was good for the price.
Thank you for repponding to our request to write a review for the condo 1590 athe Ilikai Marina. We do not supply the beach umbrellas but sometimes previous guests leave them in the condo so one must have been left. We thank you for your comments on the cleanliness of the condo, The condo is individually owned so the furnishings are according to each owner and the websites do depict them correctly so each guest can decide if the condo is a good fit for them. The reasonable price would have to increase with updates and the option for the more reasonable pricing is a nice option to be available. We have not had any other guests who had problems locating the building but are glad that you did find it but wish you would have called so we could have helped.
Thank you again for your review and we hope you can come again soon.

Great condo view but needs a little modernization to the unit. Also, the twin bed in the room should be a queen size.
Thanks for the review for unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. Thank you for mentioning the great view as it is pretty amazing! The sleeper in the living room is advertized as just large enough for one person since the condo only can accommodate 3 people total. Therefore a queen size is not needed in this condo. The website does depict the condo as it exactly is so the decor and finishes are very well presented for any guest to decide if this condo would be of interest to them.

Thank you for your time in posting a review for unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. This condo is a great and very accommodating location with amazing views! We are sorry you did not feel the bed was comfortable. Beds are very specific pieces of furniture in that every person desires different mattress types in which we of course cannot accommodate all. We often in different units we represent have had very contrary comments on beds where one person loves a bed and another does not think it was comfortable.

Great Location-condo needs a few updates
Reviewed by Lori
This condo is in a super location in Honolulu. It was a 20 minute walk to Waikiki, or a 5 minute Uber ride. We loved looking over the marina, and enjoyed a great dinner at the Chart House restaurant in the same building. Parking was easy, kitchen appliances all worked well.
Now for the bad part-this condo is old. It needs some major love in the form easy cosmetic updates. For example, a new paint job-there were major paint dings on the walls everywhere. The carpet is very very tired. The bathroom tub/shower area needs to be replaced and/or new caulking and paint as soon as possible. The queen bed was lumpy and the comforter old and tired. Very old linoleum in the bath and kitchen areas.
We weren’t in the condo much, so I was able to overlook this, but need to let other vacationers know. I was disappointed with these issues, worse than many Super 8 motels. A great spot-please update the space.
We appreciate your feedback for the unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. It is a really great location conveniently located just where you want to be. The views from the unit are unbeatable and there are lots of restaurants in close walking distance.
Waikiki Beach is just across the Marina parking lot and just takes about 5 minutes to reach walking. The Hilton Lagoon is also a nice attraction for cooling off in the same location.
We appreciate your feedback on the unit and suggesting some updates. However this unit is individually owned so the owner would then have to increase prices to cover the costs. The current reasonable rate is a nice option for some to get a condo that has a full kitchen and is accommodating for a stay in a perfect location with a great view!

We stayed here for 3 days. The condo itself was ok. It had everything we needed. There were no issues checking in or out. It would be nice to have parking included rather than spending $20.00/day. I understand this is the city but for renters it would be nice to include. We spent most of our trip on the North Shore and preferred that area. Waikiki is very busy with a lot of people. When I booked I thought the beach was right in front of us but the marina is right there. The beach is just a couple minutes' walk so not a big deal. The lanai is very small. There are 2 chairs but it was hard to relax when that is all you can fit on it. It served our purpose for what we needed. It would be great to include a larger TV and add one in the bedroom. I would say stay here if you are staying under a week or have a specific purpose for being there that is not vacation.
Thank you for posting a review for us for the unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. We are glad you found everything you needed in this unit.
No matter where you go in the city, parking is not free for hotel accommodations. However the public garage you spoke about at 20 dollars per day is just one option. The Marina parking is 1 dollar per hour and there are some curb side parking in different areas that are free if you happen to get a space. Considering the very reasonable price for this condo it even with the parking is a deal!
Yes Waikiki is a big city and has all the attributes associated with a big city including people. People who are attracted to the city enjoy this atmosphere and all the conveniences of the multiple shops, restaurants and activities. They like being where the action is.
The pictures on the website for unit 1590 does show the view from the lanai and that it overlooks the Marina and Ocean beyond. However you are very close to the Waikiki Beach just over to the left a very short walk. The website also shows the picture of the TV and the Lanai space which we want all guests to have a complete overview of this unit to make a decision if it is right for them.
Convenient location, pleasant apartment and a picturesque view
Reviewed by April
Mahalo to Kristen and her colleagues for providing clear and detailed instructions before, during and after our visit. The condo is conveniently located between the main tourist district of Waikiki and Ala Moana Shopping Center. Although there is a garage in the building (there is an additional fee), the condo is next to bus stops connecting to other points in Honolulu.
The view over the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor is stunning; you have a panoramic view facing south, and you have an unobstructed, front-row seat for the Friday evening fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The apartment is a 2 minute walk to the beach, and a 10 minute walk to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. There are a few convenient food options nearby. For a good, coffee-shop style breakfast, head to Cinnamon's at the llikai. For more upscale tastes, the dining options at the Modern are quite pleasant. Both places are accessible via a footbridge from the second floor.
The condo was very tidy when we arrived. The layout and convenience are wonderful; a full kitchen, as well as Internet access. The price point is ideal, too. I felt like I paid a very fair price for the level of accommodation. The apartment is comfortable but not luxurious. Having said that, I do have a few small suggestions for the unit owner. I think a small "refreshing" of the amenities would benefit future guests. While the apartment is clean, it is showing a little wear: the carpet could use a deep cleaning, the bathtub had signs of a little mold, and the apartment could use a coat of bright paint. Linens and kitchen items could use an update, a quick trip to Walmart or Target could take care of this. However, these details did not detract from our stay.
The condo building is well-maintained, with evening security. I would advise staying on a high floor if you are disturbed by noise. The Chart House restaurant and the Harbor Pub closes late each night, and some of the lingering guests made a little noise. The other guests and tenants of the building are courteous and respectful.
All in all, I would happily return to the Ilikai Marina Condo. Mahalo for a great stay!

We also loved the ease of accessing the property without having to do a hotel checkin. There are plenty of places to eat and shop nearby and we loved the location. It is also a short walk to the mall which is nice. We definitely plan to have another staycation in this condo!

When first walking into the condo, we did notice that it was clean and orderly. Then we tried to use the pull out couch and could not figure it out! So my son ended up just sleeping on it. The carpet was full of stains and I would say it is in need of replacement. In general it was clean, never found bugs, I guess I prefer a hotel just so that you are always able to contact someone when you need them, and you get clean towels every day. It was a hassle and expensive to do laundry every day as we needed to so we could have clean towels. Not a bad place to stay, liked that it was clean and in a good location
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad you found the condo clean and orderly.
We wish you would have called us about the sleeper as we could have helped with that. Also we would have been available to call about anything. Our numbers were provided for you not only in all the email correspondance but also on the sheet posted in the unit itself even if it is after hours.

The location is great, marina, park and lagoon within 5min walk. Great view from the small lanai, best view of Friday fireworks show other than a helicopter. The condo itself is very basic and the furniture could be nicer, but at this price point it was very clean and comfortable. If you want super nice finishes and furniture this is not the place for you, but if you want a clean budget friendly option this is your pick. My wife and I loved our time here and spent most of our time enjoying the surrounding area so this place was great! Only reason I did not give this place 5 stars is because it was what I expected, not more than I expected, would not hesitate to book again.

View from the room was beautiful. Location was good apart from the noise from the airport which you could hear occasionally. Mattress needs replacing as you can feel the springs. Had a sliding room separator which is good for privacy if you have more than two people. Overall for the price we were quite happy. Not fancy but had the facilities needed. Could do with a bigger television as there was only one small one in the living room without a working remote but we did not spend a lot of time in the room so it didn't bother us to much. Another good thing was that wifi was included in stay. Overall if you are on a budget this place is pretty reasonable for what you pay and parking is available for $20US per day at the hotel which was super convenient if you are going to hire a car.

Great view from the condo, located in an excellent location. Other than that, the condo is old and in desperate need of an update. The bed sheets had blood stains, paint was peeling off walls, and there was zero communication from condo owners. Wouldn't stay here again, the view doesn't justify how old and run down the condo feels. Would have loved to have heard from the condo owners to check on how we were doing and to see if we needed anything but that never happened. Spend the extra money to stay at one of the hotels or another condo.

Good location with public transportation easily accessible. Spacious condo for 2 people staying for a longer stay than 3 nights. Old I have no problem with & slightly used, but cleanliness is important. The tub had darkened rings around it. Hair on floor. The price per night was very reasonable for Oahu. The check out cleaning fee was unreasonable I felt. We leave places cleaner than when we arrive as a rule. Did it take $135 US / $181 Canadian currently to clean the condo after us? If it didn't, I know that I would appreciate a portion of it back. Aside from this would have appreciated a couple more facecloths. We loved the view overlooking the Marina out to the ocean. We would consider renting here again if we come back to Oahu.
We do appreciate our guests posting reviews from their stays with us. This condo is in the perfect location, has incredible views and is spacious and well equipped. If we had known that you had some issues with the cleanliness, we would have sent someone over right away to remedy the situation. We do want to make sure our customers have a comfortable stay with us.
The fee we charge for the out cleaning is what the contracted cleaners are paid for their services. These are individually owned units, therefore the cleaning is not part of a hotel or service but contractors who come in for the clean, who get paid per clean. This is their charge and is paid whether the unit was booked for one night or one week. The unit still needs attention in every detail to prepare it for the next guest from linens to bathrooms to kitchens etc.
Even though towels are provided, there is not a maid service in this unit. Therefore, if you would like them refreshed, there is a laundry facility in the building on the 8th floor for the guests to use.

Thanks to great management and ease of entry, we were able to immediately settle into our apartment. The keyless door lock was a great convenience throughout our holiday, allowing family members to come and go with ease. We liked the quieter location on the end of Waikiki Beach, yet surrounded by amenities. We ate at Morimotos next door a couple of times, shopped at the nearby Hilton stores, and walked along the beach until we found a good place to swim. The view from the balcony was nice, over the marina, and we watched some great sunsets. Also, I liked the well equipped kitchen, even though we did not cook. The apartment configuration was good too, allowing everyone access to the one bathroom without waking others up in the apartment. My only little wish would be that the balcony was a little larger to allow for a table outside, but this was compensated for by having the inside dining table by the large patio doors, which we opened up. The apartment was also light filled because of the patio doors. One other small desire would be that we would have had a washer and dryer in the apartment. Overall, I can recommend this place highly and would definitely consider another stay here.

This is the second time ive stayed at the Ilikai Marina. The last time I stayed on the 5th floor. Unfortunately the elevator was slow and only one on each side was in service, however that is because they were improving them! so next year should be great. This is a great location to Waikiki breakfast ABC store and the sand of the beach. Only bummer on this particular unit was that the bed is really firm/springy, and being that my wife and I are bigger, and the size being a queen we sprung each other off a few times lol. For the price and convenience of having a full kitchen there is really little to complain about. The property manager who handles the rental is awesome. they send you all the details with your room lock number, you get in, grab your car and go straight to the condo and boom! no waiting for check in, not hassle nada. in case you did not know you have to pay for parking, $20 a day not bad and we never had trouble finding a spot close to the elevators, which even in the far corner is not a trek at all. I would recommend this property all day long. oh don't pack beach towels, if you really want wait to get some take home towels at the swap meet or market place...or else you will be bringing back two towels lol.
Great place to stay with an excellent view

Reservations and checking in were both really easy and stress free. Condo spacious enough for having few friends over for dinners. Location was great being that it was downtown, but not in the heart of Waikiki. Available coolers, extra beach towels, and adequate amount of cooking supplies. We enjoyed our stay and glad we stayed here rather than a hotel. We have already recommended this place to friends, and hope to come back soon!

it says it sleeps 4 but really it only sleeps two, the couch folds down it is very uncomfortabl and small. the balcony is so small that you can hardly move on it. the sheets had little balls all over them I had to turn them inside out because it was not soft to the skin. The coffee cups were dirty on the inside I soaked them and scrubed them to try to get them clean and the silverware is very cheep looking, I dont think they get repeat guest I would not stay in unit 1590 again.
Mahalo for your review and feedback. We have a new management team in place now and they are making wonderful new changes to my condo.
We've purchased a new sofa bed based on your feedback that you can see in the new photos and videos. We understand that the balcony is small, but the spectacular views makes up for it. It's one of the few places where you can see the north end of Waikiki Beach and the south end of Ala Moana Beach in an unobstructed view that you have access to nearly everywhere in the condo - even from the bathroom! You can also enjoy the wonder of fireworks above the lagoon at night..
New linens made of high thread count Egyptian cotton are now available and we've replaced the coffee cups. We've also replaced the silverware.
All of the photos and videos are new as of April 2014. Thank you again for your feedback and we'll continue to be responsive to our guests needs.

It was such an enjoyable experience I have already recommend the Ilikai Marina Condos to my Travel agent . Everything that was needed was provided for down to the last detail . The view of the sunrises & sunsets were something I will never forget. When we come back again we will definitely book the same Condo . Excellent Security code very safe way to enter & leave the condo . the staff are very helpful & friendly , on our arrival the security guard was most helpful . We liked everything about the condos close to restaurants , shops & transport & the beach .

We have stayed in various units at the Ilikai Marina and enjoyed our visits each time. This was no exception. The unit was clean and well appointed. The views are magnificent. The only criticism is that they could of supplied more bathroom incidentals (TP).The good news is that an aBC store is just across the street and they have everything you might need for a short stay.

Overall we enjoyed our 4 night stay at condo 1590. We are a family of four, with 2 young children and the condo was the perfect size for us. It is well maintained and has a wonderful view. The location was good and we liked the fact it was an easy walk to lagoon, beach or the ala Moana Center. We did walk into the main strip of Waikiki which took around 25 minutes.
Management were easy to deal with and answered any questions we had promptly.
The only reason I didn't give the condo five stars was because the complex does not have a pool. We knew this when we booked and didn't think it would bother us at the time, but we were wrong. Especially with having two young children a pool would have been good for us. But other than that could not fault condo 1590.
Also as a side note - you are able to leave your bags with the concierge at the Ilikai Hotel for a $1 a bag, if you arrive before 3pm or depart after 11am. We found this very handy.

The view from 1590 is impressive, morning, noon or night. Our 3 night stay was let down as we were not advised at booking or when we arrived that the water would be shut off all of our first day. This would not normaly be a problem if advised in advance but after a long night flight we woke up to no water for showers, flushing toilet or even a cup of tea, not what you want on your first morning when you are still jet lagged and unfamilar with your surroundings.We would not have booked our 3 night stay if we had known in advance and would not of paid the full price. It is my guess that this was why we were not told at the time of booking and not even a note was left in the room

Condo 1590 is a very nice appartment on the 15th floor of Ilikai Marina, guaranteeing you awesome views towards the harbour (straight), the Hilton lagoon (left) and ala Moana Park (right). It is a nice 15-20 minute walk to the main waikiki strip but very close to some aBC stores, where you can stock up on some groceries as well as numerours restraurants. Tip: There is a larger supermarket called "food pantry" within walking distance on 438 Hobron Lane.Parking is very convenient (20 $ per day) and the elevator takes you directly to the 15h floor. The 4-digit key code that opens the condo-door is also very handy as you do not have to get and return any keys.The kitchen is remodeled and the bed super comfy. The only minor criticism would be the bathtub that is a bit dated and could use a makeover. Apart from that, the condo has the perfect size for one couple and I would highly recommend it to everyone who is searching for good comfort with a 5 star view in Waikiki.
Awesome views and very convenient location!

This attractive condo was perfect for our family of 3 (2 adults and a teen). The views of the harbor from the living room and balcony and bedroom were fabulous. The kitchen was well stocked with necessities and we ate a few meals there. The bedroom was separated from the living room by a sliding wall-door.
The location of the condo was great -- steps away from the Waikiki beaches and fabulous restaurants -- and a short walk to the mall as well. It was a very good location too for my husband's business meetings in Honolulu. We would definitely stay there again!

Ilikai Marina #1590 was the last condo on our recent trip to Hawaii, and it was love at first sight. The description from the rental agent was really helpful and we found the Hotel easily. You can park directly in the complex; for hotel guests it's 20 $ per day. So it was just a short trip to the elevator and up to the 15th story. What a view! The Marina directly below and Waikiki to our left. Every night we stood on the tiny lanai and toasted the sunset. The condo is just big enough for two, obviously recently renovated, clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit firm, but still okay.There are serveral ABC-Stores within a few minutes walking distance where you can stock up on groceries, the Shops at Ala Moana are two bus stops or about 15 minutes walking distance, where you can stock up on absolutely everything...Waikiki Beach with its shops and restaurants wil take about ten minutes walking - and what a beautiful evening stroll it was, under the full moon *sigh.Tip: try the "Red Lobster" downstairs, we absolutely loved our dinner there!

We just got back from our wonderful family vacation in Hawaii. Our stay at the Ilikai Marina condo 1590 was a pleasant surprise. The apartment was clean and the views were beautiful, but there were a lot of upgrades which made the condo much nicer than we thought; Starting in the kitchen there was a brand new toaster, new kitchen towels and I believe the coffee pot was pretty new too. The living room chair is new, and there is a beautiful brand new dining room set, the bed had a nice new comforter, sheets, and pillows, and was a lot more comfortable then I thought it would be from reading past reviews. The Lanai is small but not a big deal, we just moved one of the chairs and little table out of the way so we could go out there and enjoy the gorgeous views of the rainbows over the marina, the lagoon by the Hilton, and the breath taking sunsets over the ocean. One of my favorite assets was the front door entry...it has a 4digit code that Kat gives you before you get there, to lock and unlock, so you don't have to worry about those card keys that I always tend to loose on vacation. Thank You to Kat and Jim for everything the only bummer is I forgot my free tote bag.

Reviewed by dayrae13
We lucked out finding this rental for the first part of our honeymoon. Every morning we opened our curtains to look out over the marina and we saw some really nice sunsets from there. It was a little disappointing that the lanai was so small but we made the best of it. It was in a great location too, not right on the beach but a short walk away from all the hustle and bustle. It was convenient to hit the store, the Pro Bowl activities that were going on in the Hilton Hawaiian Village as well as access to our friends who were also staying at the Hilton. We couldn't have asked for anything better for the price. If there was one other downside I would say the bed was too hard, but that is personal preference I guess.

This was our first stay at the Ilikai Marina Rm 1590, but not our first visit to Hawaii. Pricing was excellent, location, the best, for my wife and I love to work out and stroll around ala Moana Park in the early morning and at night. Waikiki beach is also an easy stroll away. Room 1590 is a single bedroom ocean and marina view, my favorites. Quiet and relaxing with a functional kitchen and living room, it is a great location which I will return to again.
The Lani is very small and a bit crowded with the plastic lawn chairs and table. I personally didn't care about this for my wife and I toasted the setting sun each and every evening giving thanks for another wonderful day.
During January, the sun shines very brightly into this apartment making it hot,making going onto the Lani impossible until the Sun starts to set. Closing the curtains brings back a more comfortable setting.
The bathroom is a standard bathroom nothing fancy, watch the towel rack on the wall, it will pull off if you try to pull a towel out of it..no big thing, just snap it back in place.
The bedroom has a queen size bed which is comfortable, the pillows are lacking substance and are thin, so doubling up with two pillows helps. Storage in this room is good.
The living room has a foldout sofa bed which is OK to sit on, lying on the sofa pillows gets uncomfortable after a while due to the gap between the pillows on the chair. The single wicker chair pillows are old and very uncomfortable to sit on. I recommend new pillows for that chair, then all would be great. Tv works fine.
Beach supplies can be found in the front closet near the kitchen which saves you from buying these items for the beach.
Overall my wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai Marina Condo. We parked in the parking garage on parking level F, 4th floor because there was never any problems finding a parking spot and the elevators are easy to get to.
Enjoy your stay at Rm 1590, we did,and will again.

Our room was quiet and very comfortable. We did not cook, but it was nice to have it stocked with everything we would need if we wanted.** The connection to the internet needs improvement. The cords need to be replaced. We traveled with our own so it was not a problem. Plan to shop for groceries before you arrive at the condo, you are in a resort zone, so no food stores nearby.

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying in apartment 1590 recently for one week. Kat, who it was organised through was extremely professional, very proactive and had provided us with all the information we needed. Arrival was so easy and well explained by Kat and we were so impressed with the spectacular sunset view from the lanai. Yes, it is small, but that was expected due to previous comments we had read. My friend found the queen size bed extremely comfortable in the room and I found the sofa queen bed really comfortable for me too. For us this apartment was ideal as we had wanted two separate sleeping areas, a nice view and we wanted a place not too far from Waikiki action- though not amongst the hustle and bustle either. This was perfect. We were able to do 15 minute power walks along the beach to get into Waikiki Beach, though had the option on a $7 cab ride in if we wanted to as well...We will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends. Thank you Kat for being so efficient also...

The view was excellent - the best part of the experience, but there were numerous problems. The deadbolt key did not work--difficult to deal with for the new and tired arrival. The bed was so hard and uncomfortable that my husband had to sleep on the pull out sofa (first time he has ever slept away from me). There was no flat sheet for that bed. The coffee pot was too small for the coffee machine so didn't release the coffee. But Jim and Kat responded and resolved problems immediately. But why so many problems?? We expected a relaxing vacation, not a series of problems to resolve.
Thank you for noting that your concerns were addressed immediately.
For a follow up, the dead bolt that you had trouble with was replaced with a new keyless electronic entry security system.
For Guests that need a softer mattress, we added a mattress topper to the inventory.

Our stay at Ilikai Marina Condo 1590 for a week at the end of March 2011 was an outstanding experience marred only by the accidental severing of the water mains by road constructors (happily only hours before we shifted out). Checking in and out was painless (not least because of the detailed information supplied beforehand) and the condo itself was perfect for our needs. Moreover, with a balcony looking out of the waterfront, this was indeed a case of experiencing Waikiki in the front row but at an affordable price.

This condo was exactly as it was described on the website. It is not new and glamorous but was very clean and a reasonable price. The fully equipped kitchen saved us a lot of money in meal costs. Communication with the property manager prior to arrival was great! The only negatives are minor: 1. the lockbox on the door for the keys was a cylindrical combination lock, not with buttons as described in the arrival instructions. 2. The bed in the bedroom was quite hard and uncomfortable. 3. Read the instructions on the back of the front door for the correct instructions on connecting to the wireless. Other than these small quibbles, it was a positive experience.

Great views and sunsets from the balcony overlooking the marina.

Very convenient walking distance to the huge ala Moana shopping mall, which has everything you might need.

We didn't dine out, instead we bought dinner at Red Lobster (next door), drinks from the aBC store across the street, raced upstairs & sat at the table & watched the lights of the surrounding area. The fireworks on Friday night (8pm) what a bonus.

Very central to everything. I didn't have a car so I avoided the $17/day parking charge by using the city bus and trolley system. You can get everywhere you want to go on the island for a very minimal fee. Went to Pearl Harbor for $2.50. The Fireworks at the Hilton on Friday night were spectacular. Traveling alone I felt very safe with the security guard on duty down stairs. Kat is my hero.

I ended up in Honolulu by myself with family members staying at a hotel on the strip. I felt my accommodations were far better than theirs, and for about the same price. I had a gorgeous view of the Gilligan's Island marina, they had a view of the roof of an adjoining building. They were smack in the middle of the touristy area, I could get to it and away from it at will, which I loved. The staff at aloha Condos could not have been more helpful and bent over backward to take care of me.
Also, you are right next to the Hilton Complex, which is huge, and easy to access. You can use their stores and restaurants, and their beach, and no one bothers you. It is kind of fun to watch all of the weddings that constantly go on during the weekends. The closest Starbucks is also over there. Proximity to their grounds more than made up for the condo not really having much of a lobby area...and they have fireworks on Friday evening which are really close to this condo.
A couple of hints. Don't rent a car and don't use the cheesy tourist trolley: it is way overpriced! Also, you'll spend all of your time trying to find parking in the Waikiki area. The city bus is easy to use, especially if you have Google maps on a PDa. Each trip is $2.25, and if you make them give you a voucher for the return trip then that is for free. $17 a pop to keep a car overnight seemed high, and aloha Condos makes sure that everyone understands that cost. You can rent a car in three separate places near the condos if you want to tour the island for a single day or two. Don't take it into the downtown areas at night...oh, and they have a guard on duty at the harbor condos every single night. I really appreciated that! Felt safe everywhere but downtown Honolulu (not the tourist strip, but over where the government buildings are) in the evening, even though it was still light out (had a function I had to attend).
