Thanksgiving Trip

Perfect staff, perfect views, perfect everything! Hotel was right on the beach, but a nice walk to the shops. Breakfast wasn't impressive, but that was the least of my worries. I'd stay here again in a heart beat!

near diamondhead

Very nice room. I would stay on a higher floor to get a better view as trees were in the way. Great service. A little further from downtown but fabulous parks and beach

Lotus Honolulu

My husband and I stayed at the Lotus Honolulu and had an amazing stay. The location was amazing it was away from the tourist so it was nice and quite. The staff was always nice and very helpful. We had a beautiful view of both Diamond Head and the beach. If we ever came back to Hawaii we would stay here again.

quiet location but a bit pricey

We enjoyed the Lotus but it is in a quieter area south of Waikiki and therefore the choice of restaurants is limited, not helped by the hotel's in-house restaurant being closed. Room was comfortable and reasonably spacious with a good view od Diamond Head and partial sea view.

Great hotel

The hotel staff was super friendly and the room was very comfortable and nice! Just a few steps from the beach! They offer free wine and the housekeeping staff visited twice a day to ensure you didn't need anything from towels to ice. They offer free beach chairs and bikes to ride up and down the strip. Great choice away from the busy Waikiki

Simply the Best -

Our stay was perfect! A quiet gem off the beaten path. Fabulous dining. Within easy walking distance to shopping, dining and spa. Very private and quiet. Steps to private beach. The staff is professional and knowledgeable. We will definitely stay at the Lotus again!
