Pleasantly surprised when we arrived here. Staff is wonderful and so helpful. Was upgraded at our arrival with an ocean view room. Room was lovely just what we wanted. Our stay here was grand. 2 minute walk from the beach they supply beach chairs and towels. This is on Waikiki beach with close proximity to all the sights. Would rate...

What a fantastic place! Even the shuttle guy from the airport asked how did you find them! It was first class from the start. The location is second to none with views to die for. Ocean one way & mountain views of the diamond head in land. A swim moments from your door but exclusive and quiet just moments away...

So we booked through trip advisors "auquaTA" advertised discount of $199/night, which included two breakfasts. When we arrived at the hotel we had to ask for the breakfast vouchers. Front desk staff were not acquainted with trip advisors promotion. The hotel added on another $57 to our bill, citing taxes and something called a boutique fee. For $260 we could've...

Aloha and thank you for your comments. I do apologize that the Front Desk person was not aware of the promotion, however we do not show that promotion to include breakfast. We have taken care of that deficiency. As for hidden fees, your wholesaler is supposed to alert you of all the fees, (it also states the fees to which...

After lots of research, we chose Lotus Hotel just off the beach and in walking distance from Waikiki because we didn't want to deal with traffic, people, and noise. This was the perfect spot! We could walk to the beach and ride the complimentary bicycles to area stores. Complimentary valet parking was a great plus! $25 resort fee/day covered parking,...

Lotus is at the far end of Waikiki across from Kapiolani Park, on the beach access and at the foot of Diamond Head. Shuttle to the center of Waikiki on their shuttle bus or stay where you are. If you have an athletic membership see if they have reciprocal benefits with the Outrigger Canoe Club, 2 doors down, which is...

Location, location, location. Great to be away from the mad bustle of Waikiki but close enough to walk there if we wanted. Nice amenities, but a bit rundown in terms of decor and upkeep. However, very nice stay close to the nearly private beach.

We had such a nice stay at the Lotus! Friendly service and a free upgrade with a view of Diamond head and the ocean. We also appreciated the water on arrival and the happy hour wine and cheese - lovely! Our favourite part was borrowing the bikes and going for a ride to Waikiki, the perfect way to get around...

The staff here is amazing. There is a lot of attention to details like soft music and cookies welcoming you to your room. When we went to leave the valet already had our car ready for us. The beach, while small, is lovely. The towels were fluffier and more were provided than the ones at Hilton Hawaiian Village. We didn't...
