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.

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

Great Hotel For Quiet Times

This hotel is fantastic. We were greeted with a huge Aloha, and when we asked for a coffee maker it was being delivered when we got to the room.The staff could not have been more helpful with travel arrangements.The room was spacious, clean and the bed was awesome. It is right on the end of Waikiki Beach so it was very quiet.Pick-up for tours was right in front of the hotel. We used Grayline Tours and we went to Pearl Harbor and Island Tour. Highly recommend them. the hotel needs to upgrade their room lighting, clock radio's and the rooms don't have microwaves.

The view from the room was amazing. Diamondhead on one side and the ocean on the other. Very quiet and peaceful setting.

Lotus at Diamond Head

We go to Hawaii once a year. We really enjoy the quiet Diamond Head side. We loved the large rooms with the VERY comfy beds. The Hotel was small and staff knew who you were and alway very helpful. The San Souci beach is a very safe place if you just want to swim without waves. Seems like it's mostly made up of locals vs. tourists. Each year we keep getting further away from the main strip, and this year we think we have found the spot we will revisit next year; Lotus at Diamond Head! If you are looking for lots of action with malls on the bottom floor of your hotel, this is not the place for you. It was very peaceful even with some added excitement of the TV show Lost being filmed in the hotel while we were there! Loved this place!

Tokkure Tei is the best Sushi EVER!!! Short drive from the hotel and a bargain. Everyone there seemed to be locals and were surprised that we were visitors. Great spot!

Off the beaten path gem

I was born and raised on Oahu and returned to attend a funeral and visit family. If you're looking for a nice hotel that is close to Waikiki and still on the beach, but away from all the congestion, this is the place. From my balcony, it was as if I could reach out and touch Diamond Head. From my bed, I had a perfect view (between two buildings) of the ocean. I left the shutters open during the night so I could awake to the view. Down below was the expanse of Kapiolani Park, birds singing and the sound of the waves. It just doesn't get much better. The restaurant has changed its hours and wasn't open during my visit. However, the Kaimana Hotel next door has a beautiful beach-front dining and bar area; you can get food early am until 9pm. I walked every morning from the hotel to Fort DeRussy, about an hour or so. If you enjoy good coffee, I suggest the Kona Coffee place at the historic Moana Hotel next to Kuhio Beach. A must for dinner is the upscale grill directly upstairs from Duke's restaurant. I had a swordfish and sunfish combo that was delectible. If you're ambitious, a walk from the hotel towards Diamond Head Beach is beautiful. Oh yes, the entire staff at the hotel is wonderfully gracious. It was worth spending the $15/day for the valet; you have in and out priviledges, so it's much easier.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a short walk towards Kuhio Beach on Friday and Saturday night to the bandstand area set up on the beach. There are free concerts which change weekly. Sometimes they include dance performances. Mostly locals attend as the city is trying to attract more Kamaainas back to Waikiki; you'll not be dissapointed.
