Indian Head, Maryland1 contribution
The staff here at the Lotus were exceptional at providing top notch service rarely seen these days!!! It truly felt like our own little island view studio...very private, comfortably casual, clean and beautiful. Other guests were respectful and fairly quiet. Top floors have killer views of the park and street and mountain as well as the gorgeous ocean!! The beds were above average in comfort I must add. A monk seal had decided to have her baby on one of the closest beaches nearby and we truly enjoyed being able to watch their behavior (from a safe distance determined by specialists or through the neighboring restaurants windows...they left a day before we did!!! Within 5 blocks walk there was a nice restaurant as well as a small but tasty beach shack with meals smoothies and snacks... beach access, snorkeling, surfing and parking was clutch behind the building which is mostly shaded. If you want to be in the middle of a party go up the shore a bit but if you need quiet and space...this is your jam ;)

The Lotus is on the “Gold Coast” of properties near to Diamond Head and next to the famous Sans Souci “without a care” beach property that began the history of vacation resorts on Waikiki beach. This is where Robert Louis Stevenson stayed and befriended the Monarchy. I stayed two nights in room 925 which has a large lanai with a spectacular view to the east of Kapiolani Park, Diamond Head, and down to three sections of ocean between shoreline structures including the Elks building, the Outrigger Canoe club and the San Souci apartments. For a “kamaaina rate” it’s on the high end but I was paying for this view. There are two lanai in the room and the one at the shore front side of the room does look at the sea. Even with the bustle of traffic along Kalaukaua avenue it is quiet and breezy. The AC was lovely and not musty. Housekeeping comes every third day (maybe because of the pandemic?) but I had coffee in the room and plenty of towels for my stay. The property was asking for everyone to be masked in common areas which is in compliance with local mandates at this time and it felt logical. The plants in the lobby desperately need watering and I did not see things as “sparkling clean disinfected” but things look orderly and tidy to be sure. I think as hotels have lay silent during lockdown not all positions of staff have been rehired and maybe one guy is cleaning the lobby who is not used to tending t the plants? There is a nice fountain next to check in and a convenient porte cochere with both valet and self parking. The restaurant TBD by Vikram Garg is on the second floor and it has Indian fusion supper most evenings and offers room service for a small window in the evening most nights. A short walk past the Zoo down the street will take you to convenience shops and other restaurants for meals but there is a small fridge and microwave in the room. The bed linens and towels were clean and otherwise like most places the room has been stripped of communal objects to be disinfected so the amenities are pared back. The line of bathroom products for use is excellent and that’s a sign to me service is not slipping. I otherwise did not have any additional interaction with staff other than a pleasant check in and check out. I did walk out for a sunset just around the corner and took in the beautiful sight of Waikiki unfurling at sunset from the beautiful and historic Kaimana beach. The location really is gold.

Absolutely lovely from start to finish. The Lotus will give you the special touch and will feel intimate and like home. If you want the slick resort experience, look elsewhere, but if you prefer quieter and thoughtful, this is it. Maholo for such a wonderful experience.

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location if you want away from all the congestion of the main resort area. The view of Diamond Head was wonderful and the ocean. The staff are extraordinary in their service. There is a huge park across the street with the largest trees. The locals have a lot of picnics there. There is also a small store right next door for convenience in beach and food items. We will definitely stay here again when we return. Barefoot beach cafe is a short way down the beach to walk to. We had a wonderful time!!!!!! Hope we can go back soon.

Every staff member we encountered was kind and helpful. Custodial staff, front desk staff, everyone. Zayisha was an incredible host! We would return here in a heartbeat. Killer views, great beaches for kids and adults. Access to food. The hotel is close enough to all the popular tourist spots but just far enough away from the most crowded beach. There is a beach about a 1 minute walk away from hotel. And if you’re up for the chaos and people watching of Waikiki you can walk ten minutes to the main strip. Ideal!
