Loved this place. Yes, it has its quirks--the one elevator and no restaurant, but after being here twice within 4 weeks the place really grew on me. I didn't mind the 10 min. walk to restaurants (LuLu's for breakfast was great, and I ate dinner twice at the bar next door at Otani and once outside for lunch at their...

We chose this hotel because of price, location, and atmosphere, and we weren't disappointed. It's at the Diamond Head side of Waikiki beach, near some condominiums, across from the park and within walking distance of everything. The lobby has a Zen vibe, with sofas, cushions, fountains, mirrors, candles, etc. It's a comfortable place to hangout with the pre-dinner wine glass....

If your looking for a place that has a relaxing pool with tasty food then look else where. I was a little dissapointed that it was the price it was and yet in terms of facilities it was barely one step up from a hostel. That said the room was excellent condition and clean and good service. My view was...

We stayed here to be near Waikiki and Diamond Head. It was perfect. There is no pool, but who cares! You are in Hawaii and the beach in front is a dream. We took advantage of using their bicycles and beach equipment which are included in the $25 hotel boutique fee. Great valet parking. You can walk into the center...

Lotus at Diamond Head is an odd duck. It's clearly an older hotel that's been renovated to more modern standards. Location is a bit of a bust, views are pretty bad, beach access isn't great, and there's only one elevator for the entire building (used by both guests and staff and it kind of has a mind of it's own)...

My two 17 year old sons & I stayed at this perfect hotel for us for 8 days of their Spring Break. We loved it & had a terrific time! The room had two excellent double beds, flat screen TV, coffee maker, large safe, small fridge, free WiFi & wonderful lanei with gorgeous view of Diamond Head & partial view...

The rooms and service here is great. Lobby and rooms are very modern and ultra comfortable. A very peaceful place to stay away from the Waikiki noise. However, the rooms views are of other hotels and roads, even when you upgrade to ocean view. Everyone is so willing to help. The restaurant here is closed, but bakery goods and coffee...

We stayed for one week during the beginning of July. The fact that the hotel does not have a restaurant didn't bother us, There are so many great breakfast spots throughout Honolulu. Try Bill's, Kokohead Cafe or Kaila's to name a few. The fact that the hotel does not have a pool also didn't bother us, Kaimana beach has a...

We just returned from a 5 night stay at Lotus and could not have been more pleased. The service was head and shoulders above the big chains. Employees knew us by name, provided bottled water when we left on foot or in our rental car, offered towels and chairs when we left for the beach, and were always helpful and...

Beautiful, spotless room, peacefully decorated, very zen and serene. The hotel has a calm welcoming atmosphere. Hotel is away from the hustle of Honolulu and feels like a private club. The hotel staff is caring and professional. The real Aloha experience, you feel like you are staying as their personal guests. Walk right over to the busy Honolulu/Waikiki in a...
