It's been 2 years since our last stay and we were happy to come back. Great chill vibes as soon as you drive up. Staff is great. Valet people are always greeting us with a smile and aloha. The Diamond Head view is wonderful. Awapuhi amenities were a nice treat along with the Illy espresso in room. Nice getaway location.

This is an old hotel that may have been an apartment block. The room photos make the rooms look bigger than they are. However it's still a nice hotel and it's away from the noise of the main strip. There's a small private beach, daily free wine service and really friendly helpful staff. Join their loyalty program for a free...

Next to the park with a view of Diamond Head. Quiet and relaxed yet walking distance to the attractions of Waikiki. Room was large, well designed and comfortable. Try to get a room away from the elevator. The opening and closing of the door is noisy. Staff was great. My biggest complaint is that with the resort fee. I realize...

Great location--just a few minutes walk from downtown but thankfully quiet/peaceful and away from the hubbub of the downtown area. The room has interior sliding wooden doors to cover the glass sliding doors (which go out to a patio), and this is a great idea, better than curtains, to improve sleep in the mornings. The room and bathroom were clean...

We chose this property for the location. It proved to be what we wanted and more. Our room was immaculate, spacious, and well appointed, with a beautiful view of Diamond Head. We enjoyed the peace and quiet afforded to us by the distance from the "madness" of Waikiki's shopping and tourist meccas. The nightly happy hour was a nice touch....

If at all possible, you should try and avoid Waikiki, which is now full of t-shirt shops, subways and other revolting fast-foods. Diamon Head, just east, provides beautiful beaches, without all the aggravation. This hotel is ideally located, though it should be noted that it is NOT directly on the beach, which is a short, 200 yards away. The hotel...

The hotel itself is nice, however it's the people that make this place the most amazing place to stay. JR and Marcie are simple amazing. The complimentary bikes make it a breeze to get around Waikiki and are definitely recommended versus renting a car. This place is your home away from home. We will definitely make this our regular stop...

Overall: one of the best boutique hotels I've stayed in. Don't hesitate to stay here. The Room: booked the "premium ocean view room" and it was amazing! The main balcony provided a beautiful view of Diamond Head and the ocean, and the bonus juliet balcony facing the ocean directly allows you to wake up to the sound and sight of...

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at the Lotus Honolulu in Feb. 2016. It was recommended to us by my good friend who is a native of Honolulu and knows all the local hotels. The Lotus was everything we expected: a laid back, boutique hotel just around the corner from a quiet beach on the sunny side of...
