My husband and I came to honululu for our 5th anniversary - booked at lotus based on reviews. We booked directly on hotel site, a premium diamond head view room (higher floor, upgraded amenities, robes, slippers,etc) . Granted it's midnight, our flight arrived three hours late - we've just checked in. I must say I am disappointed. Our room is... More

Fantastic stay and amazing views. Felt spoiled! The staff made us feel very welcome. Would suggest that the bikes be stored indoors to prevent further rusting. The location was perfect, not too busy or far from shops and beaches.

The hotel near to beach and walking distance to Waikiki center. Accommodation bikes, beach towel, snorkeling equipment. Family use bikes to diamond head for hike and great site. Beware the $25 dollars charge for boutique fee per day which charge when you check out. I did not aware what boutique fee mean so the receptor said you pay for complimentary... More

We are frequent visitors to Oahu. There is none better for a neat boutique hotel on the quiet side of Waikiki near Diamond Head. Staff is superb. The rooms are fine. Wine in the late afternoon is a nice touch. I like the valet parking. My only complaint is that there is not a restaurant in the hotel. Many years... More

After nearly two years of insane business travel, I came to Honolulu for work and booked an extra night, in an Ocean View Premium room at the Lotus, as treat to myself. The reservation, of course, had a cancellation policy that guaranteed the hotel one night of revenue if I should cancel late, or no-show. So I was shocked and... More

Great hotel with nice rooms and view. We stayed on 9th floor and 10th floor ocean view rooms and you get a great view of the Diamond Head. However, our ocean view was partial since there are two buildings between the hotel (Colony Surf and San Soucci) and the ocean. Nonetheless, this is a great place to stay if you... More

After spending a week on the west shore of Oahu, we wanted a few days closer to Honolulu. The Lotus Hotel was the perfect place. With a balcony facing southeast, we had a great view of Diamond Head, the park and the ocean. Although we were less than a mile walk to Waikiki, we felt we were in a remote... More

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our round the world trip! We had a corner room on the 7th floor. This gave us 2 balconies, with views of Diamond Head and of the Ocean in between the nearby hotels. Nice size room, comfortable bed, air-con, good size bathroom with plenty of towels each day (and refeshed at... More

Pluses: Great location at the south end of Waikiki Beach. Efficient valet parking. Minuses: Not much view of the ocean. Very slow Wi-Fi. Upkeep: of the eight sliding doors, three were not working when we arrived. One was off its track and was easily fixed. One glass slider would not lock, but we were on a high enough floor not...
