The staff is very friendly. The lanai had a beautiful Diamond Head view and a view of the ocean. Room was tastefully decorated. The food from TBD pop up restaurant was delicious. We have enjoyed our stay.

This is about my 15th visit to this hotel. It’s my destination of choice when I visit Honolulu. Located within walking distance from both Waikiki and Diamond Head, but away from the crowds, it’s the perfect calm retreat. For more adventure you can borrow one of their free bikes to tour the area. It’s small enough that the staff knows you by name within a few days, and has a beautiful nearly private beach, with chairs and towels available for free. The rooms have refrigerators, microwaves and coffee makers so you can cook for yourself if desired, and a lovely restaurant downstairs if you want to venture out. Kapiolani park is just across the street for morning and evening walks or rides . The rooms are beautifully furnished with tropical woods and airy Lanais. The hotel is serious about safety, and tests temperature upon arrival, offers sanitation stations throughout, limits elevators to one group and cleans rooms only upon request. I spent three weeks working from the hotel, as they’re desks and Internet are terrific, and it was the best respite from the pandemic raging on the mainland. I felt so safe and comfortable I will return again for a longer stay.

Where to start. Beautiful view of Diamondhead AND the ocean as well as overlooking Kapiolani Park. Although no pool, there was close beach access. Can request towels and chairs from the front desk on the way out. Freshwater shower access. I can’t say enough about our room and the views. Absolutely stunning. The staff was fantastic, responsive, friendly and always helpful, you can feel the Aloha. Especially Christianne (sp?) who made a point to learn and use our names daily. We had never stayed at this end of Waikiki and will not hesitate to do it again as it was a very peaceful part of town.

The hotel staff was very accommodating to our needs throughout our stay. They were friendly and responsive to all of our requests. They made the hotel feel like a home for our month long stay while waiting to buy our home, speaking to us by name and even making friends with our dog. The restaurant had wonderful food (try the curry!) and the bar made delicious cocktails. Beautiful views of DH and the majestic Pacific made our stay very memorable. The location on the Gold Coast was great for dog walking and had multiple options for beach access. All the food delivery services come to the hotel as it is only minutes away from downtown Waikiki. Parking was never a problem, with ample amounts of covered and uncovered stalls. And if you don’t feel like driving, the bikes for rent made for fun excursions. Within walking distance from great snorkeling and surfing spots. A convenience store less than a block away was useful for any last minute food or beverage needs. Don’t forget to take in the sunset from Kamana beach park. We will stay at the Diamond Lotus again for a staycation and recommend it to any military members doing a TLA approved stay like us.

I stayed at the Lotus Honolulu for my 2-week quarantine based on location and relative distance to family. The room is a great size and so is the bathroom. The room is large and the lounger is placed perfectly. It gives you unwind and relax vibes while enjoying the view through large glass doors. In the bathrooms I especially loved the long countertops making it easy to get ready. If you’re the kind of person where it matters, the hair dryer provided in room dried my waist length hair like it was a full size dryer. Something else I had never thought would matter- there is a small hamper provided in the bathroom for you to thrown towels in. It was a nice small touch to keeping everything uncluttered :) PILLOWS GALORE! Is it important to you? It is to me. They had pillows from soft to firm. The bed was a giant cool hug. The air conditioner was powerful. In short, I had some really good sleep. The internet speed is quick. I had no issues working with documents, connecting via VPN, or with video conference calls. There is a desk connected to the console where the TV is placed with ample outlets. The room had another cabinet that housed a mini fridge and microwave (yay for the microwave!). The Lotus Honolulu’s awesome location meant that I could get groceries and food via Instacart, GrubHub, UberEats, etc. The staff was really quick with no-contact deliveries. I cannot express how grateful I was for that last part. The staff was really sweet and accommodating. I was in quarantine but the staff would deliver anything I needed (extra coffee pods, trash bags, towels, etc.) and I only needed to leave things to take away outside of the room. Based on the room and the lobby, I want to be back for vacation. The balcony alone was large enough for me to comfortably do yoga on. They have a lot of amenities that help you enjoy Waikiki to it’s fullest and I’d love to take advantage of that. The location alone is really great- just far away enough where you’re away from the main Waikiki hustle but close enough where it’s a short walk with the safety of a lot of foot traffic. I stayed on the 5th floor partial-ocean view room. Next time I’d spring for a different view and ask for a higher floor :)
