my stay in Diamond Head wouldn't have been as great if it weren't for the lotus and its primo location. Away from the bustle on a beautiful beach and surrounded by parks, and within minutes to walk to more beaches. Feeling as comfortable as I did was mainly due to the warm, friendly, and very helpful staff. It was my... More

Fantastic staff and service, very friendly and welcoming. Is a 10 minute walk to the centre of town - and I ended up really appreciating being away from the busyness of downtown Waikiki. Beautiful beach 100 metres away, lovely room and helpful staff.

I loved it here. We checked in early and walked into a beautiful ocean facing room. The room felt so light and fresh and I could have spent days just lounging on the chaise looking out at both diamond head and the sea. The upgrade was def worth it!! The staff here went over and above in helping us but... More

We were in a two bedded room on the 8th floor which was great. It was nicely furnished and spacious. We had both sea and mountain views. The staff were very attentive especially Travis. The location of the hotel might put some people off if they want to be in down town Waikiki. For us it was great, quiet and... More

The rooms are modern, spacious, and quiet with lovely views. The service from every staff member was perfect! The location is excellent if you want a relaxing vacation, because it is near Diamond Head, and yet only a 10 minute walk to the heart of Waikiki. The restaurant was excellent. I have been staying here for past 10 years. The... More

I travel to Honolulu 2X a month, and this was the best hotel I've stayed at so far. You will be welcomed, and treated fantastic from the time you drive up. The rooms are modern, clean, comfortable, and the shower was one of the best I've had. I am making this my home away from home.

This hotel is awesome! The view from our room of Diamond Head, the park, and the water was incomparable. The hotel is located in a quiet portion of Honolulu but within easy walking distance of all of Waikiki. The rooms were large and the bathroom was spacious with high quality toiletries. There was a small refrigerator and an espresso machine.... More

I am currently into my second week at this hotel. I had to extend my stay in Hawaii and decided against a condo because this hotel is so nice. It's pet friendly, nice to my dog, nice to my elderly handicapped mother, and it's quiet here away from Waikiki. I looked at three rooms when we first got here. The... More
