Ilima Hotel

445 Nohonani St., Honolulu, Hawaii, 96815, USA

Tucked away on a residential side street near Waikiki's Ala Wai Canal, this locally owned 17-story condominium-style hotel is a throwback to old Waikiki, offering large units that are ideal for families. The glass-walled lobby with koa-wood furnishings, original Hawaiian artwork, and friendly staff feels like a Hawaiian home-away-from-home. Rates are decent for the spacious studios and the one- and two-bedroom suites, all with full kitchens, cable TV, and spacious lanai; there's an on-site coin-operated laundry room. The interiors are dated but clean and well-kept. It's a two-block walk to Waikiki Beach, shopping, and Kalakaua Avenue restaurants. The parking is free but limited; when the spots are full, you can sometimes park on the street. Every Friday morning the Ilima Ohana Chorus performs in the lobby and guests are invited to sing along.
