Honolulu, Hawaii

We live on Oahu and had to have our house tented for termites, so had to get out overnight. The Lotus welcomed us, including our dog, and were flexible on early check in and a extra half day rate for a very late check out. They were very friendly, provided treats for the dog, and recovered by iPad that I...

Stayed a week at this hotel on business. Really enjoyed the room and the hotel staff (PJ & Zachary were especially helpful, knew me by name,etc.). The room (1024) had a large balcony and views of Diamondhead and the ocean. The beach is literally less than 100 steps from the hotes via a little path - you don't even have...

Aloha daysaint, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Lotus Honolulu. We are glad to see that more business travelers are finding us here on the "quiet end" of Waikiki.

This was our first trip to Hawaii so I relied on my travel agent to find a nice hotel in Honolulu. Did not want the mega hotels on Waikiki but something still handy to the beach. The Lotus was perfect for that. Located across from a park and next to a beach park, the area was quiet but still handy...

Rooms and Staff superb. Not having a pool wasn't a big deal for us. Valet exceptional, provided water and very detailed maps to go sight-seeing. Hotel just outside Waikiki so you not in concrete jungle. Can't say enough for the stay. Hotel Breakfast was informal yet intimate. Few Hotels near Public Park, so Beach Area very accessible. PT and Denise...

LOVED my stay - my new favourite Honolulu hotel, just a little outside the busy Waikiki craziness yet close enough to stroll down for great people watching. Pet friendly! Abby loved the park. Beautiful and recently updated and very current. The main lobby has not been updated yet and I hope they don't . It is so lovely with its...

We were in Hawaii for my daughter's birthday and the staff here made a great effort to make her day special. The room was beautiful with fantastic views. We splurged on the corner room and were not disappointed. We were pleased with the restaurant food, atmosphere and our waitstaff was relaxed and friendly. Would not change anything except possibly staying...

If you are looking for a very nice boutique hotel a little off the beaten track but still in Waikiki then The Lotus is where you will want to be. Actually in the shadows of Diamond Head and a beautiful beach for your own use pretty much. All rooms have a view of Diamond Head and some of beach area....

A little gem at the end of a very busy beach area, we had a wonderful corner room (1121) which enjoyed two balconies to benefit from the beach views and diamond hill.

Stayed at the Lotus for four days beginning of September. All I can say was awesome. It was at the quiet end of Waikiki beach , the views were amazing of Diamond head. Would definitely recommend . Free wine was perfect , after our tiring days visiting the island.

My first ever post. I usually don't bother. But I was so impressed by the Lotus. Great location, immaculate rooms, beautiful views.
