Not quite on the beach but we had a beautiful "Deluxe Diamond Head View" room that also had an ocean view. It was a corner room with views in 2 directions. The hotel and room design was very attractive. They have free valet parking, a little strange since the lot is right in front by the door, but probably not big enough for the number of rooms without the valet. The only real missing element is a restaurant. The "breakfast room" on the 2nd floor was clearly recently a full restaurant. Now they have a counter with some breakfast items for sale. But the hotel next door has the Hau Tree Restaurant, a really beautiful beach front restaurant, a good choice for meals.

Loved the neighborhood, access to a park, excellent customer service, friendly front desk, valet and maids. The room was beautiful and we had an accessible room which was great. The reason for my 3 rating on room condition was the bed. It was on a platform so there was no box spring. My mattress and my mother's was lumpy and uncomfortable. I was very surprised. If they upgraded the beds, it would be a perfect hotel.

For being the only Pet Friendly hotel closest to dying friend's residence I was expecting a flea bag hotel (pun intended ... lol) but when I opened up the door to my room I was totally surprised! ...and I had some ocean view too! Pretty impressive. Only thing to keep it from being five star was the unexpected Boutique Fee (should have been up front about) but I gladly paid, and a newer TV and some kind of Room Service or snacks would have made it a 5 star all the way around....but it's still extremely impressive and the staff was top notch. Wish I had the time to enjoy their afternoon wine time...unfortunately my schedule did not permit.

We wanted a place near Waikiki but not at Waikiki with its traffic and tourists. This is an older hotel that has been renovated and is very nice. It is near San Souci beach, a sweet place, not packed with tourists. The hotel rooms are spacious. The staff is nice. The hotel offers coffee, tea and light breakfast in morning and wine in late afternoon. Valet parking only, but this is included in the daily boutique fee ($28 at check-in, $25 on expedia booking confirmation, $18 on Expedia hotel information). We selected premium ocean. If you do this be sure it is on upper floors and in rooms ending in 23, 24 or 25. Room with 21 didn't offer much ocean view, better from balcony. This is not an oceanfront hotel, it is set back with another hotel in front of it. Hotel does not have fitness room but offers yoga in the park and has bikes you can use. Hotel does not have pool, but beach is a short walk. Hotel does offer shuttle to Ala Moana, didn't use this though. Overall good value if you don't need the excitement of being on Waikiki.

Nice quaint hotel. Small glimpse of water between buildings. My room had a nice lanai/patio, but it looked out on to the roof. Still, it was a relaxing comfortable room. The wine hour started just as I checked in so I had a glass on my way up to the room and Hawaiian music was playing in the room as I entered. The beach is a couple minute stroll away. The Kapiolani park is just across the street and Michel's is next door with the New Otani Hotel and it's restaurants on the other side. Very convenient and nice, quiet, relaxing Waikiki location to unwind. Don't come here if you want the wild life of Waikiki. But if you do, it's only 5-10 minutes away by foot or cab.

Pleasant staff and good views but could have used some amenities like a bath tub, free continental breakfast and a microwave in the room among some of the missing. Hallways and lobby kept at frigid temperature but you could adjust your room temperature. Nice location, away from the downtown hustle and bustle but within walking distance of stores and restaurants. You could also use a local trolley service if you let the front desk have 20 minutes advance notice. This trolley service/bus service makes many stops in downtown Wakiki where there is shopping and dining facilities and is free.

We love this place -- our little getaway when we are home visiting relatives in Honolulu. It's away from the crowds of Waikiki but a nice beach walk to the action when you want it. The best beach is here - Kaimana -- that locals like -- and the views of Diamond Head and ability to exercise around it (a 4 mile loop) or in Kapiolani Park at the hotel's doorstep -- is awesome. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfy. Luxe enough for us--we just love it here!

Not much for food places around, their breakfast was just dry Costco pastries, (blank) for a papaya???? Happy hour of cheap wines, same every day. But when we received bill, (blank) daily boutique fee, for what??? I'm already paying nearly (blank) a night!!! Most other hotels charge that and say it's for using facility pool/gym etc. There is none of that at the Lotus. Have to use valet so tipping adds up fast, really, for the amount they charge with Walmart blow dryer and microwave, I expected better!!!

Great experience staying at Lotus. The staff was very friendly and always went out of way to help make it enjoyable and comfortable. The hotel supplied us with bottles of water so we never had to purchase any drinking water at stores. They had beach towels and chairs available for us to take on our beach visits. They also had bikes for guests to enjoy at no extra cost. Wine was served each evening in the lobby and iced lemon water was also in the lobby throughout the day. In the mornings we also enjoyed the coffee available at the second floor restaurant. Access to the beach is just around the corner 1-2 minutes. The hotel is a bit further away from the Waikiki strip about 10 minute walk which is nice if like quieter and less crowded. Our room was on the 4rth floor and so the ocean view was not that great since the Lotus sits behind two other hotels but those buildings are not very high either so I wish we would've gotten a higher floor room. All around a great experience.

What can I say, it's a great property with the most attentive, friendly, efficient and helpful staff you can ever want in a tropical paradise. Just off San Soucci Beach, with private access to the Outrigger Club Beach this hotel boasts some of the best views of both the Honolulu skyline and Diamondhead Crater. The modern, clean rooms have balconies and the corner rooms have two - just in case you want a change of scenery. The only point I would quibble about is the amount of convenient food options nearby. Several pricey restaurants within walking distance but to get any selection or local favorites... it's a drive, and the in house restaurant has unfortunately closed. However, the quiet neighborhood which boarders a beautiful park is quiet and restful. But if you want a killer view of all that Honolulu has to offer while being served by the nicest staff ever to work at a hotel...anywhere... I suggest you get to the Lotus. It's a gem.

The Lotus was perfect for our family of four. It is quiet, located across from a large park. It is a 3 minute walk around the corner to a nice, calm beach that is good for kids, but it might take you 4 because you will be laden down with the chairs, towels, and boogie boards the hotel provides as part of their concierge service! The service is excellent, friendly, personal, and accommodating. We were upgraded at no additional cost, and our room had a view of both the ocean and Diamond Head. For those who like to hike, Diamond Head is less then 2 miles from the hotel. It is a 30 minute drive to Pearl Harbor, which is standard for all of Waikiki. You can walk to the touristy shopping of Waikiki, but a better choice is to drive 5-10 minutes to the local eats and shops on Diamond Head Rd and Kapahulu Ave. The hotel has free yoga classes 3 times a week, a happy hour wine selection every night, and a nice continental breakfast selection for a nominal fee. Coffee, cocoa and tea are free in the morning. I would definitely stay here again. We loved it!

A few highlights: We called down to ask about snorkeling rentals and they had gear for us to use for free! The hotel also has some bikes (with locks) to use for free when available, but if you're willing to walk ~15 mins you can get to the main Waikiki area but are far enough away from the noise and hubbub to appreciate some great relaxation. FREE YOGA 4 days/week was an excellent start to the day. The room was gorgeous with a great bed, and wonderful view of Diamondhead off our balcony (which requires an upcharge). Service was amazing!! Can't say enough good things about this place, we'll be back!!

We booked an ocean room premium & it was fantastic! It was a corner room so had 2 balconies, one overlooking Diamondhead & the other the ocean, PERFECT. We witnessed the eclipse over Diamonhead, what an experience. The hotel is not ocean front but we had a nice ocean view & the beach is a short walk. The hotel provides beach chairs, towels, bikes & ALL the staff is amazingly friendly. Take advantage of the happy hour in the lobby w/complimentary wine. Nice way to relax & mingle w/other guests. I highly recommend attending the Chief's Luau, helicopter tour & Pearl Harbor. Great trip & we would stay @ Hotel Lotus again (we did not go but the hotel is within walking distance of the aquarium & zoo).

Love the hotel. It squirmy with low ceilings in the lobby and mid century vibe. We have been staying there since it was a W hotel back in the day and saw it change ownership over the years. The last TWO times we booked an Ocean view room and when we requested the corner (actually viewing the ocean between other buildings) we were forced to pay an up charge of $20 bucks. I booked FOUR rooms, two Ocean and two Mauka. You would think a single room out of the group being on the corner would not be an issue over $20. I've been booking at the Modern which is much better service and amenities for about the same cost. Its unfortunate because I loved supporting what felt like old school Hawaii. My business partner still insists we stay here when he is along. $20 bucks is no big deal I would have gladly paid that when I booked however being fleeced at the beginning of a trip, business or pleasure, is really POOR service.

Very friendly, helpful front staff. Ocean view partially blocked by buildings closer to ocean. Requested 2 beds instead of one king, since 3 of us. I assumed that they would be 2 queens, instead they were 2 doubles. So, if you are tall, beware. Pleasant one night stay but wouldn't stay there with more than 2 people in one room.

Extremely clean, large room with really comfy bed. Staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in or near chaotic Waikiki.

The hotel is located at 10 min walking distance from Waikiki beach. Very quite area, with the Diamond Head crater and partial ocean view at floors 10 and up. Large park opposite to the hotel. Parking on the main road is $0.50/hours with maximum stay of 4 hours between 10 AM and 6 AM. Other times free. There is another car park on the other side of the park which is free. Close to Zoo and aquarium (5-10 min walk) The beach is shared with 2 other hotels. Access to it through the rear car park and by the main entrance of the Kaimana Hotel. Beautiful and quite beach, fine sand, shallow water for a few feet for children, lifeguard on site.

A very nice hotel located on the east side of the park next to Waikiki - so if you like a little less hustle and bustle - and yet still be only a ten minute walk to the hustle and bustle - then this is the place for you. Staff was very friendly and helpful. View of Diamond Head - which is about a quarter mile away - was nice to wake up to each morning. Also loved the birds - as most mornings I was met on my deck by at least one or two white doves. Will likely return sometime soon.

I stay in hotels 5-10 days per month usually trying to book a 4 star accommodation. I travel to Honolulu twice a year for business. I've stayed along the strip and while you have many amenities it is so crowded and impersonal you get lost in the crowd and become a sheep. The Lotus was a refreshing break from the bustle of Honolulu. The rooms were well appointed and have a terrific view of the crater with some ocean view. We all love a great ocean view but it was nice having the mountain background as well. What makes this hotel so great is the staff, which starts from management. The hotel manager (Dean) was a refreshing change from many managers I meet. The small beach is a hidden gem. Not a big tourist attraction beach so don't go there if you want major people watching. There is a great 1/4 mile swim to the buoy with lots of active (local) swim teams. The free bike use is terrific to ride up and over the hill to check out other areas a bit further out. Don't stay here if you don't like to walk a bit. I wouldn't recommend the hotel for people that have difficulty getting around or are of the demanding sort. Kids would be okay if you get them out for other activities but it’s not a “resort” with a big pool, which kids love. This is a great chill hotel with everything you need (no pool but the beach makes up for it). The restaurant is very good with a good feel to it and great food. My wife and I had such a great time I'm staying here again on my next trip. Thanks Lotus!

Hotel located at the end of Waikiki area. Taxi is about $10-$15 to the central Waikiki, walking is about 20-30 minutes. Hotel rooms are big, modern, and clean.. Love the hard wood floor and the balcony. Hotel staffs are nice and friendly.. We stay 4 nights this trip and will definitely recommend for you to stay.

We had an amazing time at Aqua Lotus! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff (especially the valet) were extremely helpful and friendly. It was so great to be able to borrow beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and even bikes. It was a very short walk from the noisiness of Waikiki, with views of Diamond Head and/or beach. Diamond Head crater hike was 8min drive. highly recommend this hotel and hope to come back again. Thank you Aqua Lotus

I am a soldier preparing to leave my family for two years. Though I live on the island of Oahu, I decided to get a room for my wife and I for a weekend getaway in Waikiki. That's when I came across the Aqua Lotus. I am a local, so being around a mass of tourists is just not what my wife and I enjoy; if you are the same, this hotel is for you. It's location places you within walking distance of the hotspots in Waikiki without slapping you in the middle of the chaos. The staff was very accommodating and upgraded our room when I told them this was the only weekend I could get away with my wife before I deployed...we had a great ocean view on the 11th floor. The room was spectacular, with hardwood floors, a chase lounge, all marble bathroom, and a large lanai for sitting and watching the sunrise, drinking some champagne, and getting fresh air. Overall, this hotel is a must for a romantic getaway or even just a visit to the island. I have stayed at other, bigger hotels in Waikiki before, was never as pleased as I am with the Aqua Lotus. I assure you I will never stay anywhere else when I decide to go to Waikiki again.
