I've stayed at the Lotus since it was a W years ago. The location is part of it, and now with a solid management and seemingly happy staff, the Lotus is the only place I will stay while in Honolulu. Yes, Waikiki is a 15 minute walk but (a) it's good for you, and (b) the area is quiet at... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lotus for two nights in early July 2014. It was our second hotel in Honolulu, so we were not expecting great service. Surprisingly, we were overwhelmed by the caliber of service at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the hotel amenities were excellent. We would definitely stay here again...

We were really pleased to have discovered and chosen Lotus at Diamond Head, thanks to tripadvisor by the way, and so we want to share our satisfaction. The hotel is quite and far from the crowded and noisy center of Waikiki where the big hotels are. The room is very large and very very nice with a lot of amenities.... More

I was so surprized by the Lotus. I stayed one night and it was great. I loved the location. It was quite and the staff were exceptional. I had a Diamond Head view room and it was amazing. I love the hard wood floors and the entire decor was lovely. Wes at the Front Desk was great and went above... More

This was a great place to stay off the Waikiki strip. Staff was wonderful and ocean view premium room was great. The complementary wine in the afternoon is a great touch and the little beach is great for a "dip".

Very friendly and welcoming staff, ten minutes walk to the lower end of the Waikiki strip. A short stroll to a great beach, very safe. Towels, chairs, sunshade and water were provided daily The web site gives a true reflection of what you can expect at this lovely hotel. Would love to go back sometime soon.

Our stay at the Lotus Honolulu was wonderful! This quiet, sophisticated boutique hotel is within reasonable walking distance to shopping and restaurants yet is away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The staff were cheerful, extremely helpful, and some spoke to us by name. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and well designed. Ily coffee/coffee makers and small refrigerators were... More

Booked my aunty at this hotel- was great ! Rooms were very nice, clean, big with balconies. Wonderful staff and great location. The hotel even serves free wine each day between 4-6:00 pm! The front desk attendants were extremely helpful and very friendly. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quieter experience than the typical Waikiki... More

Had a lovely anniversary staycation at this nice quiet boutique hotel in Waikiki :-) The room was large, clean and well furnished. The staff were very friendly and the views of Kapiolani Park and Diamond head beautiful.

The perfect location out of the insanity of Waikiki, but just a short walk to shopping and restaurants. Wonderful staff! They had plenty of towels, chairs, snorkeling gear and bikes all just for the asking. They offer a water bottle every time you come in or out of the hotel. Great coffee in the room.
