Most of my family moved to Ormond Beach starting in the 1970's. As an adult, returning to the area to visit family, it was impossible to find a hotel that met the standards I was used to as a business traveller Every hotel was run down, low quality or just worn out. Even the Hilton seemed to be a fortress built to deal with party crowds rather than experienced travelers .
I returned to Ormond Beach for Thanksgiving this year. I used Trip Advisor to see if anything new had opened up. I found The Lotus and rad the reviews and boy, were they spot on. This place is head and shoulders above anything I have seen in Daytona area.
The property is similar to what you would expect to find in an LA boutqie hotel. It is chic, new and hip. The rooms are outstanding with contemporary styling which includes high end fixtures. We had the suite with kitchenette on the second floor. I believe it was room 202. Everything from the floors to the drapes were a reminder that Daytona doesn't have to be hotel hell. The pool and spa were clean and very enjoyable. The whole pool area offered guest a way to relax in small secluded cabanas. Only one family at the time insistant with playing the annoying game of Marco Polo. Thankfully it was brief.
Staying at The Lotus has made me re-think returning to the area just to enjoy the beach. I loved the 4 mile walk north on the beach. It brought back a lot of memories of the open beaches of the 70's when i was a kid just listening to the ocean and seagulls.
Thank you Lotus for the experience! I'll be back.
