Entire experience was perfect - Staff is very attentive, were responsive to every need. Would highly recommend this hotel - very convenient, without being in an area where there is NO parking. Food at the Wisp restaurant was very good.

Reviewed March 16, 2017 via mobile

We were in Honolulu for my cousin's wedding and decided to stay here for a couple of nights. I had not visited Oahu before, but I knew that we did not want to be in the middle of Waikiki, and the Lotus worked well for us. It was relatively peaceful. It had access to a couple of small beaches. There...

A great little boutique hotel... Perfect for someone wanting stay close to the action but far enough away for a quiet and relaxing stay while in Honolulu. Was very pleased with the hotel staff, nice and professional. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was good and again the staff was great. Beautiful corner room with view of Diamond Head.

There's a lot to like about the Lotus Honolulu. We've been to Oahu several times and wanted to to try something a little different. Everyone should stay in Waikiki at least once, but it is very crowded and can be a bit overwhelming if you're not from a big city. The Lotus is only a 10-15 minute walk to the...

Couldn't decide if I should give Lotus 3.5 or 4 stars, so with 3.5 not being an option, I went for 4, due to the level of service and attention to detail...despite it not being "high end luxury." I had several days work in Honolulu, and my group was staying right on the main beach in Waikiki. I decided to...
