Great hotel if you want to avoid major chains and want to be away from the craziness of Waikiki. Staff at the hotel is wonderful. Close to trigger canoe club. No pool, but 1minute walk to the beach. Free happy hour (red/white wine and snacks) beach towels provided. Valet parking. Recommend having a rental car. Free DVD movie rental. Yoga... More

We stayed there July 7-9, 2016. This was our first trip to Honolulu. We had to arrange shuttle service. We chose Speedy Shuttle, was nice, but took a long time to get there. Upon arrival we knew why. The Lotus is situated a little farther down Waikiki beach. It was still within walking distance, but not at the center, where... More

This was my first visit to Honolulu and we came to the Lotus at the recommendation of a friend. Great choice! We loved the quiet location at the end of Waikiki and the hotel was perfect -- view of the ocean from the balcony, with free bikes and morning yoga! Complimentary wine in the afternoon and Illy coffee machine in... More

My husband and I arrived mid June. We stayed at Lotus for a few weeks until we were able to find a home. We loved it there. The location is perfect. The service is top notch. Thanks for taking care of us. Timothy & Patrice B.

Excellent customer service. Beautiful location, clean well appointed bali style luxury rooms.This is my new favorite. Quiet location with gorgeous views of Diamond Head and the amazing flowering Rainbow shower trees. Sweet quiet are tucked away for the busyness but so close you can walk to anything you need.

This small hotel has few amenities but lots of heart. Sparkling clean and beautifully designed, the rooms have terraces with views of Diamond Head, only minutes away by bicycle or on foot. Rooms are well-appointed, beds are fantastically comfortable, and each has a great espresso maker and a useful mini-fridge (hotel has no restaurant so stocking up on snacks and... More

We happened upon the Lotus while searching for last minute accommodations. We were so lucky we did! After a long two days of travel, walking into the Lotus was like walking into heaven! The lobby area was beautiful, with lit candles, fresh flowers and even wine...we arrived during the complementary wine happy hour (4-6pm daily). The staff couldn't have been... More

My family and I stayed here for Father's Day weekend for a nice little staycation. It really exceeded our expectations. Our room was beautiful with gorgeous views of both Diamond Head and the ocean.

We only stayed in Honolulu for 2 days prior to going on a cruise. We didn't want to be in the middle of town where it was very busy and noisy so we choose to stay on the outskirts at the Lotus. It was perfect! Our experience was nothing but perfect. Every staff member we encountered was so pleasant and... More
