Our family of four recently stayed in two ocean view (connecting) rooms on the 12th (top) floor of the Lotus. I was trying to decide between the Lotus and the New Otani right next door, but the recommendation of a local friend made me choose the Lotus (they also had a great switch and save rate and bigger rooms). We... More

I really liked the location of this hotel. It is kind of on the end of the main strip which was good. Not far to walk, but you can get some peace if you want to. We were on the 7th floor and our room was really nice. The staff were extremely helpful when we checked in with advise on... More

We spent two nights at Lotus - Diamond Head, in an ocean view premium room which was beyond our expectations : it was modern and spacious, clean and well equipped (and included amenities such as an expresso coffee machine which turned to be very useful when we had to wake up at 5:30 a.m. on the day we departed). Even... More

Just left hotel today after a 5 night stay. Lovely people and great service but the room we had on the 9th floor was looking a little tired. It didn't help that I don't think it had been cleaned properly because I found a toenail on the entrance floor as soon as we arrived and there was dust gathering in... More

The Lotus was the perfect place for our vacation! We were steps away from the beach and our room was absolutely perfect. We had views of the ocean and Diamond Head. The service was excellent and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful with excursions. We made use of the bikes, yoga lessons and snorkeling gear free of charge. The valet... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks while working on the island. The staff at this hotel are really nice and try to accommodate you whenever possible. The hotel provides complimentary water daily which is extremely nice with the heat and price of water. The rooms are on the nicer side for the price of the hotel. The hotel... More

The room was just great, we had a view of Diamond Head which was so beautiful in the morning as well as the evening. The staff was just amazing, from the time you drive... More

Thank you to all the staff at the hotel, front desk, valet, house keeping. Everyone is so friendly, caring and helpful. When we first saw the location, we were a bit concerned that the beach wasn't directly accessible but honestly it was so close and convenient to get to it that we were so happy we didn't choose a hotel...

LH is just outside of Waikiki. If you prefer a more peaceful accommodation this is a good pick. The beach, park, Aquarium, Waikiki Shell, the zoo, Waikiki hotels and local buses are all w/in a 2-15 min walk. The room was beautiful & balcony w/table and chairs had an awesome view of Diamond Head, the park, and parts of the... More
