Lovely hotel, great staff and great part of town. quiet and easy to access at any time. We chose a premier room with 2 view aspects. Valet service for the car was terrific and the beach is a short 2 minute walk. Concierge was very helpful with chairs, towels and cold water to drink at all times.

This is an awesome little botique hotel located toward the end of Waikiki. It is close to everything but secluded enough to bring a little peace and quite to your vacation. The staff is amazing and will make you feel like a VIP. Would go back in a minute.

Friendly and helpful staff. From valet parking to front desk to maid service, everyone was cheerful and helpful. The room I had on the 9th floor was spacious and nicely appointed, but best of all was the small lanai with a great view of Diamond Head and a partial view of the ocean. I saw whales from the lanai. Can't...

We stayed here for one night as we had a flight cancellation and needed a last minute booking. The customer service was excellent. Everyone we came across was kind and welcoming. Wine and cheese was provided in the afternoon and coffee in the morning which we thought was nice. The beach by the hotel is a small private area but...

My wife and I stayed at the Lotus for 9 days in February while visiting Honolulu on business. We chose this hotel because it seemed to be in a quieter area but still within walking distance of everything in Waikiki. We stayed on the 4th floor, which was just high enough to get a glimpse of the ocean from our...

Nice room, bed, sheets, service and other amenities. What I love best is the location, just inches from a stretch of beach a bit away from the manic bustle of Waikiki but not empty either. On the other side is a huge park, runners, kids playing soccer, green parakeets squawking and racing around the trees.

What a fantastic place! Even the shuttle guy from the airport asked how did you find them! It was first class from the start. The location is second to none with views to die for. Ocean one way & mountain views of the diamond head in land. A swim moments from your door but exclusive and quiet just moments away...
