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...

This hotel does not have a pool or sundeck, nor all the tourist amenities but it was excellent for business travel. The internet connection in my room was fast and solid. The room (#523) was clean, comfortable, and quiet. I ate at the hotel next door (Kaimana Otani) and found the food to be good.

On our visit to Hawaii, we stayed at the Lotus Honolulu for a few days, both upon arrival and on departure after exploring the Big Island. This is a quiet oasis in the middle of the bustling city, yet only a short walk to all the action that Waikiki has to offer. The staff is most pleasant and helpful. The... More

We stayed four nights at the Lotus Honolulu and really enjoyed our experience. The location is excellent -- down the strip and away from the madness of Waikiki, but an easy 20 minute along the ocean into the "thick" of Waikiki fun. We had a corner suite with two balconies, with a view of Diamond Head to the left and... More

This was our second trip to Lotus this year. Once again we reserved the corner room up high with views of the ocean and Diamond Head. Everything was up to high standards. I got the flu and for two days stayed in the bed with a fever and I felt like I was in my own bed. Such a beautiful... More

What an absolutely wonderful hotel! It was everything we were looking for our first glimpse of Hawaii. It was a beautiful hotel on the inside. Our room was so clean and the views of Diamond Head and the ocean were amazing! The free wine was an unexpected delight. The employees were so accommodating. They provided maps, free water and ambiance.... More
