Here in Hawaii on business.This hotel accomudated me for 2 nights. The staff was great and excellent. The suite had a breathtaking view. I utilized the shuttle to the near by resturant and shopping strip. This hotel is great and very clean. I will be staying here again on my next visit.

Although the much needed restaurant failed,the hotel remains a beautiful boutique property in the Diamond Head district just adjacent to Waikiki.Clean lines and muted colors highlight the rooms in this wonderful hostel.Haven't been here in awhile and I was happy to find everything in top notch shape.This is the best place to stay here in Honolulu.

If you want great aloha service in a ideal location (at the beautiful end of Waikiki) with clean and well appointed rooms the Lotus is perfect! My husband, daughter, son in law and our 6 month old grandson stayed here when we were visiting our family in Honolulu. The staff did an outstanding job accommodating all of us. This is... More

I very much enjoyed our time at Lotus Honolulu. First, the location was perfect. It's on the Diamond Head end of Waikiki, a lovely 10 minute stroll through Kapiolani Park to the center of all the action. Second, our 12th floor room had both a Juliet balcony and a full terrace with a panoramic view of Diamond Head and the... More

Just back from 9 days at the Lotus. The hotel was delightful. We went to visit with our newborn grandchild and daughter and son-in-law. We took everyone's advice and rented a corner premium room. Ours was on the 11th floor. The doors to the balconyare recessed and the other doors to the smaller balcony opened such that we turned off... More

This was a gorgeous hotel. Very comfortable, very clean, modern look and feel. I really liked the wood floors instead of the dreaded hotel carpet. It was quiet, I didn't hear a sound from anywhere and any time. The staff, including front desk, valet & housekeeping, were all very nice, polite, helpful. The secluded beach behind the hotel was a... More

We were traveling with two 2-yr old twin boys and the location was perfect. Short walk to the beach, where the hotel provides you with all the towels and beach chairs you need. Our family wants to thank the very attentive hotel staff for taking care of us during our vacation. Sarah was very polite and accommodating when taking our... More

What has happened to the Aqua Hotels? Have they become too big for their boots? I am a travel writer and blogger. Recently I wrote to the general manager at Aqua Lotus, and also to the CEO about an upcoming corporate trip and a possible blurb on the Aquas. We had stayed at the Aqua chains in the past and...
