    Ilikai Waikiki Hotel - this is where we stayed on our trip.

    Journaling reads:

    On February 29, 1964, Chinn Ho forever changed the landscape of Waikiki when The Ilikai (in Hawaiian is "surface of the sea") opened its doors as Hawaii's first high-rise luxury resort. Overlooking the recently expanded Waikiki Yacht Harbor and the Pacific Ocean, it included 1,050 rooms and condominiums.

    Designed by architect John Graham, whose credits include Seattle's Space Needle, the 3 winged Y shape was an architectural landmark for Waikiki. Standing 30 stories high, it was one of Hawaii's tallest high-rise buildings in 1964 and its glass elevator was one of the highest-reaching in the world.

    The Ilikai's landmark status was further enhanced when Hawaii Five O featured the hotel in its opening sequence-a panoramic shot of Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett standing on his penthouse balcony surveying Waikiki with aerial views of the Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head.
