We have stayed at the Lotus a number of times now and it never fails to impress me. The rooms are tasteful and immaculate. The service, from the car attendants, front desk and even the cleaning staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is walking distance from the shopping and entertainment hub-bub of Waikiki but removed enough to not interfere... More

The Lotus at Diamond Head is THE place to stay! Located near the base of Diamond Head it is a very quiet and relaxing property. We stayed in room 1123. I highly recommend the rooms on this level or level 12. We had a glorious unobstructed view of Diamond Head on the left of the balcony and the beautiful blue... More

The people who work here are amazing. Every single hotel employee we encountered during our 3 day stay was welcoming, friendly and very helpful. I don't think we've ever had such outstanding service in all our travels around the world! The location is fantastic. Next to the beach and quite relaxing because its far enough away from the dense/noisy/grabby Waikiki... More

Stayed for 4 nights recently & was glad we chose this place. Not far to walk to all the action down the street but far enough away to escape to some peace & quiet. Great wine reception every day 4-6pm in the lobby. Beach just a few steps away where we were very lucky to share it with an hawaiian... More

We were so glad we stayed at this hotel! Wonderful location away from the very busy Waikiki, yet close enough to walk to the beach. Beautiful view of Diamond Head from our room. Very clean and bed was so comfortable. Very helpful front desk employee, Marcy. We were scheduled to stay our last night at another hotel in Waikiki and... More

I chose the Lotus after browsing Trip Advisor for the perfect hotel in Waikiki. I'm so glad I chose this place! It is well away from the annoying crowds up the street by the stores and larger hotels. The staff is outrageously warm, friendly, super helpful and just amazing! I can't say enough great things about these people! Marci at... More

Super helpful staff. It's about a half mile walk to Waikiki, but its through a park and/or along the beach so it wasn't a big deal for us. All parking as valet, great couple of guys working outside with water for you. There is a restaurant on the second floor with free coffee/tea in the morning and wine in the... More

Welcomed warmly by the valet person (very unobservant of me, to not have got his name), then at the reception by Marci who informed us of all the inclusions provided to us during our stay here. At 7:30 morning there were either yoga/tai-chi/zumba (depending on the day) for the guests held at the park right across from the hotel -... More

We stayed at this lovely and quiet boutique hotel to complete our Hawaii adventure after visiting several other islands. This quieter location near a beautiful park and away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to Waikiki beach was perfect. The modern room and amenities (cocktail hour lovely, valet parking, shuttle to other hotels, complementary bikes) made... More
