All the staff was very welcoming. Very clean. Loved the complimentary "happy hour" of wine and coffee. Loved that the beach was a 2 minute walk, if that and they provide beach towels and chairs. Even the little things like a scale or wine cork, the customer service was very prompt and reliable!

I stayed at the Lotus March 19, 2015 and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms: VERY nice. There nicely decorated, with nice dark floors. The bedding and decor are very current. We had room 725 and it was gorgeous. This is one of the few hotels I've stayed in where after looking at the rooms online, they were just as... More

This hotel is located on the 'far side' of the Honolulu downtown concrete canyons & madness. Having said that...you can walk to the Duke statue in 10 mins. So, it's not far at all. Very quiet & peaceful location. Rooms are spacious. Bedding very comfortable. Control your own AC or let the breezes come in through the big sliding doors.... More

We like the location, Quiet and removed from the hub bub but just minutes from all the actions. We liked our room, which has a big balcony overlooking Diamond Head to the left and part of the ocean off Waikiki Beach on the right. Not much of culinary delights though.... the only food avaliable there was breakfast service operated by... More

What a wonderful stay! The entire staff is all impeccably trained and are very friendly at every turn whether it is the bellman, the front desk clerk, or the housekeeping/engineering staff. Seriously, they are spectacularly friendly. From the time of check-in to check-out, everyone was very accommodating & welcoming. Always smiling. Our comfort and pleasant experience was of importance to... More

Loved this place. Yes, it has its quirks--the one elevator and no restaurant, but after being here twice within 4 weeks the place really grew on me. I didn't mind the 10 min. walk to restaurants (LuLu's for breakfast was great, and I ate dinner twice at the bar next door at Otani and once outside for lunch at their... More

We chose this hotel because of price, location, and atmosphere, and we weren't disappointed. It's at the Diamond Head side of Waikiki beach, near some condominiums, across from the park and within walking distance of everything. The lobby has a Zen vibe, with sofas, cushions, fountains, mirrors, candles, etc. It's a comfortable place to hangout with the pre-dinner wine glass.... More

If your looking for a place that has a relaxing pool with tasty food then look else where. I was a little dissapointed that it was the price it was and yet in terms of facilities it was barely one step up from a hostel. That said the room was excellent condition and clean and good service. My view was... More

We stayed here to be near Waikiki and Diamond Head. It was perfect. There is no pool, but who cares! You are in Hawaii and the beach in front is a dream. We took advantage of using their bicycles and beach equipment which are included in the $25 hotel boutique fee. Great valet parking. You can walk into the center... More

Lotus at Diamond Head is an odd duck. It's clearly an older hotel that's been renovated to more modern standards. Location is a bit of a bust, views are pretty bad, beach access isn't great, and there's only one elevator for the entire building (used by both guests and staff and it kind of has a mind of it's own)...
