Walking into this place I didn't expect much. The service at the front desk was great.thanks Marcy! Room was nice and clean! Free bicycles for a nice ride across the street ! Free bottle water every time we went out on our tour around the island. After our trip back to the hotel it was nice to relax and unwind...

Super helpful staff. It's about a half mile walk to Waikiki, but its through a park and/or along the beach so it wasn't a big deal for us. All parking as valet, great couple of guys working outside with water for you. There is a restaurant on the second floor with free coffee/tea in the morning and wine in the...

Welcomed warmly by the valet person (very unobservant of me, to not have got his name), then at the reception by Marci who informed us of all the inclusions provided to us during our stay here. At 7:30 morning there were either yoga/tai-chi/zumba (depending on the day) for the guests held at the park right across from the hotel -...

We stayed at this lovely and quiet boutique hotel to complete our Hawaii adventure after visiting several other islands. This quieter location near a beautiful park and away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to Waikiki beach was perfect. The modern room and amenities (cocktail hour lovely, valet parking, shuttle to other hotels, complementary bikes) made...

Truly an exceptional hotel. Within easy walking distance of the busy section of Kalakua Avenue, but in a relatively quiet, uncrowded area. Staff all were very welcoming and friendly. Valet parking was quick and easy. A daily continental breakfast was better than expected. Beach chairs, towels were available from the front desk, as were loaner bicycles. Only minor downside is...

This is a fantastic boutique hotel! Away from the crowds of Waikiki, but still close enough to the best restaurants. We had a very nice room; spacious and well appointed. My only complaint was the ocean view. We did have a view of the ocean, but only what could be seen around another building. There is a difference between ocean...

I'm at the Lotus now. My stay will be 3 nights. Tonight is my 3rd night. I'm here working (sales, so a flexible schedule and I do have a car). This has been a very pleasant experience. I'm so grateful to not be in the middle of the Waikiki craziness. I'm actually a very social person, and like a lot...

The team working this hotel make this the place to stay in Waikiki. Marcy, Russell, Clarissa, and Jules all made sure we were taken care of at all times. They really give 5 star service at a 3 star price. As for location this hotel is away from the nuttiness of the strip, but not too far. About a 10...

My first time in Hawaii and i have to say i loved the place. If i were to ever visit Honolulu again, i would definitely go for this hotel again.

Visiting Oahu for the first time to attend a wedding, my girlfriend/bride arranged our accommodations at the Lotus. Because she is a local we received a very good room rate. However, Ward and his staff epitomize the Aloha spirit. My husband and and I were treated like VIPs. Our room was on the 10th floor with a great view of...
