"Great place to stay, would recomment!"
Lotus Hotel was amazing. I loved that it was away from the main Waikiki stretch so it was quieter and right across from the park. Staff was welcoming and amenities and views were great. They have yoga every morning, bikes you can take out to ride, a very knowledgeable staff and are right next to a pretty secluded beach!
"We'll be back!"
We originally booked one night here to close out two weeks in Hawaii before flying home. The start of the second week on a second island was a nightmare so we decided to add three nights to our stay at Lotus. Good decision. The room, and the view were fabulous, and the staff was first rate. The location is superb, though about a 15 minute walk to the main strip of Waikiki.
The lotus makes you feel you are in Paradise. The room was well layout and very comfortable. The staff was excellent. Evening wine and morning coffee combine with yoga and free bikes makes for a perfect vacation. with yoga and free bikes and you have the pe
"A Lovely Piece of Paradise"
We booked a family trip to Hawaii for the purpose of interring my father-in-law's ashes at the military cemetery. There were 7 of us total staying at the Lotus, and they were able to book us all on the same floor, with our rooms next to each other, which was really nice and convenient. Unfortunately, when we arrived, the elevator had just stopped working, and we were on the 3rd floor. For most of us, this was just a minor inconvenience, but my mother-in-law suffers from painful arthritic knees, so that was not such a great start to our stay. However, the staff was wonderful and carried our luggage up the stairs and deposited it in one room so we didn't have to lug it up ourselves. Luckily, by the time we were ready to come down again after we were settled in, the elevator was working again, and all was smooth sailing after that. The rooms we had were on the side facing Diamond Head, and we each had a nice lanai outside our rooms with a small table and chairs so we could relax out there and look at the glorious view. You can't possible have a bad day when you wake up to a view of Diamond Head! Another fun bonus was the daily visits from the local colorful birds who were hanging around hoping for crumbs. There were so many different types, it was great just to watch them. My husband and I had the corner room, which also had views of the lovely park across the street. The room itself was very comfortable and spacious, clean and stylishly decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable, which made it easier to fall asleep. The amenities were very nice, good quality coffee, and the local Hawaiian bottled water was provided and replenished every day, which was a huge plus for us. The bathroom was also roomy and very clean, with shelves to hold extra towels and room to place your accessories, which is usually a problem at most hotels. They also provide very nice Japanese cotton robes for your use during your stay, and even slippers, in case you forgot yours. I loved the provided toiletries so much that I ended up using them exclusively, instead of the ones I brought from home! The hotel also features a restaurant, Wisp, which we ate at multiple times during our stay, not only for convenience, but because the food was great, and the staff was very friendly and fun to chat with. I want to especially single out Will, who often waited on our table at breakfast, and provided us with a lot of tips about where to go and what to see, and how to get there. We got to know him a little during our stay, so much so that he almost felt like family by the time we left! Speaking of staff, everyone we dealt with was very friendly, helpful, and kind. No request was greeted as an imposition, and they seemed to genuinely care that we were comfortable and had anything we needed. What a unique experience! As others have mentioned, the location itself was perfect for a relaxing time. Peaceful surroundings, but you could easily walk to all the "razzmatazz" of Waikiki and enjoy the shopping and restaurants. The fact that it is also on the beach made it nice for walking in the area. The only minus, which I guess can't be helped: on the last morning of our stay, they had to kick everyone out of their rooms for a while so they could spray for bugs. A necessary evil, I suppose, since really, who wants bugs in the room' However, my mother-in-law didn't want to be exposed to the pesticide afterwards, so they accommodated her by waiting until after we were checked out to spray the room she'd been in, which was thoughtful and appreciated. Although we never took advantage of it, we saw many guests enjoying the wine happy hour in the lobby, and we did enjoy the lemon infused water whenever we returned from an outing. All in all, I found The Lotus to be a lovely place to stay, with personal service, and in fact would be my preferred choice to stay for future trips to Honolulu. I very highly recommend it for both honeymooners and families, as well as business travelers.
"Very nice small hotel."
Great location away from the craziness of Waikiki. Beautiful views from room. Everything you need for a fun stay including beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, etc. Easy walk to Waikiki and all other areas. Peaceful, clean, friendly. We will be back!
