The Lotus was a very great place to stay in Honolulu. Away from the crowds, but close enough to plenty. Would like to say ladies working the front desk were exceptional, especially Christieann, she was such a pleasant person, very personable and talkative. Will stay again!!

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.

There is a lot to like about the Lotus, especially the outstanding, genuinely friendly staff. Location, amenities all to our liking. Be aware of fees / taxes which add up quickly. Our room could have used a little TLC, which surprised us based on the many glowing TripAdvisor reviews. Would consider staying at the Lotus again, but would check other options.

Excellent and warm welcome from Christieann. She will remember your name all the time and give good advise. Very nice and confortable rooms. Very quiet at night. Very near too Diamond Head Crater, aquarium, zoo. Beach is 1 min walk behind the hôtel. Free bikes too ride, or beach chairs and towels. 1 km walk too alot of restaurants and stores. The only thing missing would be a breakfast restaurant at the hôtel and for dinner they are close monday and tuesday. No pool

We stayed here at the Lotus for our honeymoon. I could not have been happier with our choice! The lotus is nestled away from the commotion of the Waikiki strip but close enough for a days exploration. It is a very convenient location for all parts of the island. The staff very attentive and helpful and may our stay memorable with not only their outstanding service but also a free upgrade for our honeymoon! We thank the lotus staff, specifically Zee, again and look forward to our next stay with you all!

I can’t speak any more highly about Lotus. Great hotel in a very convenient location about 3/4 of a mile walk through the hectic downtown of Honolulu with all the stores and shops and millions of people, but here at Otis is a quiet walk to anywhere. And of course they have free parking which is great for someone who rents a car for their whole trip. And the beach is right there around the corner. The rooms are great and we had wonderful views of Diamondhead and the ocean. On the 11th floor. And the gal at the front desk Angélica, great gal who is really focused on service. Coming to Hawaii, stay at the Lotus. !!! . Still have to discover the restaurant and bar, will do that later on this week. They are open Wednesday through Sunday. But it looks very inviting.

Marcy C wrote a review Nov 2022
We stayed in this hotel the week before Thanksgiving 2022. The hotel is small, nicely appointed, and in a wonderful area in old Waikiki. Christianne at the front desk is the best! She is very friendly, and helpful and always addresses you by name. Mahalo Christianne. Nice beach that is accessed by walking past a couple of buildings. The beach next door is also nice and a bit larger, Kaimana beach. TBD...on-site restaurant is very good and the wait staff and service are superb. It is a bit pricey and could benefit from having some options for children. We were there with our granddaughter who lives in Honolulu and there is no kid's menu or even kid-friendly foods. I know Lotus does not get tons of kids but we saw at least 3-4 other families with young children when we were there. Lotus could also benefit from having maybe some higher-end grab-and-go food options in the lobby. We walked down to Barefoot Beach Cafe for breakfast and it was really good and great outdoor atmosphere. But really, dining options are our only suggestion. Treat yourself and stay here!

Loved our stay at Lotus. Friendly staff, daily room clean and lots of perks. Drink bottles we could refill, bikes and beach chairs and towels all complementary. We got an upgrade to a higher floor and had a gorgeous partial ocean view and the park. Room was big and comfortable. Didn’t want for a pool, lovely beach was steps away and not crowded. Would highly recommend this hotel. Thanks to the amazing staff!

We stayed in a corner room and it was spectacular! We had a balcony overlooking Diamond Head and the ocean. We really loved the area, which is less crowded and overrun than other parts of Waikiki. The hotel has free parking (a huge plus), a great beach, and a very friendly staff. ChristiAnn went out of her way to make us feel welcome as did the rest of the staff. We’ll definitely be back!
