I had the pleasure of staying at the Lotus for 4 nights on a short visit to see my family in Honolulu. This hotel has a terrific location right on the park-yet almost on the ocean.The beach to which most of the guests go is only a short walk away -the hotel provided towels and very comfortable beach chairs -...

The in-house hire cars are fantastic and allowed us to go everywhere... Our room Ocean View Premium was fantastic ...beds comfortable and the ambiance wonderful ... like being at home... More

I have stayed at this gem at least 4-5 times. Its so quiet... but at the same time you can walk to shops. If you don't want to walk, the hotel now has a shuttle that picks you up and drops you off. The rooms are great... clean, modern. Love it! Let's not even mention how comfortable the beds are...... More

Stayed here for 4 nights staff was amazing especially Dante, he is so knowledgeable and flattering, and VERY accommodating ;). They have beach towels and chairs, and just a short 2 minutes walk from the beach. The rooms are very large, and well equipped with huge balconies and a chair and table to relax and enjoy the hawaiian weather.

Me and my wife stayed here last week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is located in Waikiki but is on the quieter end of the street - away from all the tourist-madness. However, you can easily walk into the action or even get bikes from the hotel. We stayed on the 11th floor and had stunning views of... More

This was our second visit to the Lotus, and just as wonderful. It is quiet, peaceful, small and like an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Our view of Diamond Head was just beautiful. Sitting on the lanai at dawn watching the sun come up was wonderful. We joined in the yoga in the park morning classes and... More

The Lotus Honolulu saved me on a business trip to an international symposium on Oahu. It was half the price of the extremely expensive hotel chosen by the group down in the busy part of Waikiki. It didn't matter that the Lotus had no restaurant or pool or other amenities. I just wanted a nice place to sleep. Lotus is... More

We ended up at the Lotus after doing one of those "blind" Priceline bids, and so had no idea what to expect. First of all, the location is excellent if you love elegant and quiet, across from Kapiolani Park and on a small, quiet beach. And yet, it's within easy walking distance of all the Waikiki hubbub. Plus, the hotel... More

This is our 4th stay here in as many years.....why? We love the location-it's quiet and away from the main Waikiki strip but only takes about 15 minutes to get there. The park across the road makes the area feel very tranquil and well maintained an there is a private stretch of beach, although this is quite small & gets... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the hotel last month. We were very happy with the hotel. The room was very nice. If you want to stay somewhere away from the Waikiki Beach area, this would be a good choice. There are 2 reasons I did not give the hotel 5 stars. First, there is only 1 elevator... More
