“Quiet, Trendy and Simply Perfect Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I was so surprized by the Lotus. I stayed one night and it was great. I loved the location. It was quite and the staff were exceptional. I had a Diamond Head view room and it was amazing. I love the hard wood floors and the entire decor was lovely. Wes at the Front Desk was great and went above and beyond. Robert at the valet was also outstanding.

This was a great place to stay off the Waikiki strip. Staff was wonderful and ocean view premium room was great. The complementary wine in the afternoon is a great touch and the little beach is great for a "dip".

Our stay at the Lotus Honolulu was wonderful! This quiet, sophisticated boutique hotel is within reasonable walking distance to shopping and restaurants yet is away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The staff were cheerful, extremely helpful, and some spoke to us by name. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and well designed. Ily coffee/coffee makers and small refrigerators were in each room and a small market store is next door. The beach is steps away, with towels, snorkeling gear, and beach chairs available upon request. We had great fun touring Honolulu on the bikes provided and did rent the Volvo SUV for a couple of days as well. The yoga classes, offered at no charge, were a beautiful way to start the day. Complimentary wine was served each afternoon from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors have a great view of Diamond Head, ocean, or city.

Booked my aunty at this hotel- was great ! Rooms were very nice, clean, big with balconies. Wonderful staff and great location. The hotel even serves free wine each day between 4-6:00 pm! The front desk attendants were extremely helpful and very friendly. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quieter experience than the typical Waikiki area.

Had a lovely anniversary staycation at this nice quiet boutique hotel in Waikiki :-) The room was large, clean and well furnished. The staff were very friendly and the views of Kapiolani Park and Diamond head beautiful.

The perfect location out of the insanity of Waikiki, but just a short walk to shopping and restaurants. Wonderful staff! They had plenty of towels, chairs, snorkeling gear and bikes all just for the asking. They offer a water bottle every time you come in or out of the hotel. Great coffee in the room.

Rooms were very nice, clean, big with balconies. Possibly the best bed I have ever slept on. We had an Ocean View room on the 11th floor which had a little obstruction to the ocean (the building in front) but still more than enough, and also great views of the Diamond Head volcano. Hotel staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

You are a little out of Waikiki, and it's great to be away from the crowds. The hotel is right by one of the best beaches in the area (Kaimana) which has some decent snorkelling too, and the park next door which is perfect for a morning run.

Overall very happy and would recommend the hotel to friends. We ended up extending our stay there, rather than staying with friends because it was just so comfortable and convenient.

By the way, when speaking to locals and cabbies, they might know the hotel as the old W Hotel.

Room Tip: Go for ocean view on a high floor if you can.
