This was our second stay at this property, though the first time since ownership transferred from Starwood hotels. It's still an extremely nice property within easy walking distance to Waikiki without all the throngs of tourists at your front door. We were on the 12th floor with very nice views of Diamond Head and the ocean. The rooms were very... More

This hotel is in a great location far enough from the heart of Waikiki to be quiet but still only a short walk away. Rooms are large and comfortable and wifi is decent. Staff were all very helpful and the pricing while not great is ok. They have bikes available for free, which is great, however they are desperately in... More

Wes at the front desk is fantastic. He was always polite and helpful. We traveled with a group, so I didn't select this hotel. Even so, it's really modern, the rooms are clean. However, it just lacked a few things. No pool or hot tub. No workout facilities and no direct beach access. Also, we were on the third floor... More

This is my second time at this property. I was there when it first opened (different owner). Pros: Small, quiet property. Staff are very nice and attentive. It felt like we were the only ones there. There was a shuttle that went to all their other properties in addition to Ala Moana mall. It is across the street from as... More

The best choice of hotel that I could've make in Honolulu. Waikiki is great and I loved it, but after a while, you want to rest, to have some privacy, go to an almost privacy beach after a full day or early in the morning, this is the place. I had a nice view to the Diamond Head, the park... More

We stayed here four nights before our cruise to rest up and get over the jet lag. Glad we decided to do that (for more than the original reasons), because the Lotus is not just a flower -- it's a jewel. The reception on our late arrival set the tone for what was an excellent stay. We had a corner... More

Not quite on the beach but we had a beautiful "Deluxe Diamond Head View" room that also had an ocean view. It was a corner room with views in 2 directions. The hotel and room design was very attractive. They have free valet parking, a little strange since the lot is right in front by the door, but probably not... More

This hotel was trendy and walking distance to Waikiki Beach and the shopping strip! Our room was a corner room with TWO balconies! One balcony looked over the city of Honolulu and the other balcony had a spectacular view of Diamondhead!

We had a corner premium room on the 8th floor. The website was accurate as you can see diamond head from the room. You just feel very relaxed when you enter the room. The bed was so comfy. The hotel is just located past Waikiki beach. Dining and shopping only 10 minute walk. Its quiet at night. The staff was... More

We spent another few days at the Lotus and as always, upon arrival, realize why we keep coming back. Great location, friendly staff and nice rooms. What's not to love? Really like the Premium Ocean Rooms with two lanai.
