Absolutely beautiful hotel,so glad we chose to stay here,was a 20 minute walk to Waikki,but so worth it for the peace & quiet and beautiful surroundings. We had friends staying at a waikki resort and they got no peace day or night. This trip for us had been full of mishaps but once we arrived at The Lotus and met the lovely Sarah our trip was perfect. We had in our opinion the best room 1221,top floor corner room,2 balconies beautiful view of Diamond Head and the ocean. It was clean/comfortable,had everything we needed and more. Parrots landed on our balcony in the mornings which was great,bed was super big and super comfy...we were in paradise. We regularly took out beach chairs and towels. Asked advice from reception,who called us taxi's etc. Filled our water bottles from the ice cold water machine. Everything about our stay was perfect. If we get the opportunity to return to Oahu we will be back to see you all at The Lotus. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.. All staff here are amazing and we thank you all for making us feel special and looking after us impeccably.

Hotel's Favorite
After extensive research about hotels in Honolulu, I decided on the Lotus for our first vacation trip since the beginning of the pandemic. The Lotus experience surpassed all my expectations. What a fabulous location, steps away from two beaches, a world-class French restaurant, Ily coffee and Italian espresso maker in the room, fancy and convenient beach chairs and luxurious towels for the beach days. We walked everyday to the Barefoot Beach cafe nearby, the most scrumptious local restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with live music, ever! Walking 15 minutes more through the gorgeous park with lush trees and families having picnics, you get to the craziness, tourist-drenched Waikiki. What also makes the Lotus unique is its staff: Jessica (the fantastic Jessica, what glowing energy!), Christie (high beautiful vibe), Lita, Mari, Marilou, Zee, Rogie, Lester, George, Mila! Thank you for having us! I will come back to stay with you, no other hotel in Honolulu.

Clean and updated rooms. We loved the location for a stay in town on Oahu. Not in the heart of Waikiki which is what we wanted and right on the beach. The staff is super friendly. Will stay here again!

My husband and I stayed at the Lotus, Honolulu at Diamond Head this past Spring 2022. The hotel room was beautiful with two balconies and updated appointments. I would like to make mention of wonderful guest services, specifically Christieann, and Angelica at the front desk as well as Front desk manager Melissa. They all went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. We were given given a late departure with our last minute request and got to enjoy the room instead of sitting at an uncomfortable airport. Thanks to all! Sorry for the delayed review but I never forgot your kindnesses!

We had our family reunion here and everyone at Lotus was very helpful with planning and took good care of us when we were there. The location is excellent... close to everything but a little off the busiest part of Waikiki so it's quiet and calm. Their Premium rooms have beautiful views... both mountain view and ocean view.

We stayed in Lotus Honolulu for our wedding and honeymoon. The hotel has a great position, close to the center of Waikiki but far away enough to enjoy the calm and quietness of the Diamond Head park. Beautiful and large rooms with a nice view on the park to get relaxed and wake up with the sunrise behind the Diamond Head. The most unforgettable experience though is the friendliness and real sense of Aloha that the hotel stuff give to you. Especially Christieann and Sarah were incredibly kind and helpful during all the staying. I won't forget easily the morning "Aloha". Definitely recommended! BTW, don't skip the wine tasting so you can try the fabulous cocktails made by Brian!

Aloha, Thank you for staying with us here at the Lotus Honolulu at Diamond Head! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed our quiet location outside of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but were still able to take that 10-minute stroll through the park into the main Waikiki area. Thanks for sharing the great tip about the complimentary wine hour, I will be sure to share your wonderful comments with Christieann, Sarah and Brian. We cannot wait to see you again, until then ALOHAAAA! Mahalo, Melissa Yamashita Guest Service Manager

The location is great for who wants to stay out from the chaos of center but still be walking distance from everything. Beach 2 min. Small store with all the necessaire 2 min. Clean and tidy hotel. Beach towels and beach chairs a available, for free. Complimentary wine every evening. The best thing is the aloha vibe of the staff, in particular Christieann and Sarah. We miss you already ladies! Special thanks to Christieann who supported us in the morning of our wedding, when there was a miscommunication with the limo driver and she helped us finding a solution

We came for a wedding! My son and his bride found the Lotus for all of us to stay!! The entire stay was FANTASTIC!! The Lotus is nestled away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to the busy parts if you prefer. The staff was FANTASTIC!! Christie ann always met us with a smile and was so eager to help in anyway! The Rooms are perfect! They are spacious, and our balcony looked out to Diamond Head! We could see the ocean - it was just perfect!! Cannot say enough about this gem!!!!

The hotel staff made the stay at the Lotus, Honolulu an excellent experience. If I needed anything, they provided it or told me where I could get it. The hotel is quiet and the balconies are wonderful. Despite being side-by-side, the balconies are private and allow you to spend time enjoying the view of Diamond Head Crater or the ocean. The rooms are spacious, fully stocked with good coffee and creamer. The coffee pot took a little finagling; but, that was just part of the charm. This hotel is tucked beside bigger high-rises; but, it's position allows for great views of the ocean and the crater. The hotel has easy, quick access to the beach and the park. They have bicycles for use at no charge so you can tour the downtown area without using your car. Parking and driving around the downtown area is a challenge. Bottom line: great staff; clean, spacious and comfortable rooms; in the quiet part of Waikiki so you can truly relax and enjoy your stay! Best choice for an excellent Waikiki adventure!
