I'm giving the Aqua Lotus 5 stars because I would stay there again without hesitation, not because it was perfect. It's a few minutes' walk from downtown Waikiki -- this may not suit you (whoever you happen to be), but I was fine with it and it means that the Lotus is much quieter than may otherwise be expected of Waikiki hotels. Sunrises in June are blocked from optimal off-the-premium-balcony photography on floors 1-8 by a tree, but there's an open-air fire escape that provides ample photographic opportunity. The property is an older-but-renovated property -- I was satisfied with the state of everything I encountered, ymmv, and (more importantly) wasn't constantly disturbed by A/C or neighbor noise -- and the main restaurant was closed for renovation while I was there. Additionally they had router problems on their wireless guest network for a bit -- but T-Mobile has solid 4G coverage there, so I worked right around it. Their staff is solidly fantastic: friendly, helpful, and accommodating. So, quiet location, reasonable price, great staff, totally acceptable facilities: I'd stay here again and thus give it 5 stars.
