Best way to start my 30’s

Stayed here for my 30th birthday with the boy friend and I could not have been more pleased with the Lotus Honolulu.. I live on island, so when I decided to stay in Waikiki for the night to celebrate my day, the choices for hotels can be overwhelming, over saturated with tourist and very pricey. The Lotus is honestly the opposite of that. It’s in a perfect spot at the end of Waikiki strip, away from the noise, and away from the crowds! It was worth every penny, and the price was beyond reasonable.
From the moment I checked in, I felt special.. I had a bottle of Prosecco delivered shortly after arriving and got to take in the most epic view of Diamond Head from our room. The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable I didn’t want to leave the next day.
Did I mention they serve free wine from 5-6? You can’t beat that!

I absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone, whether your a tourist or a local just trying to get out for the night, this spot was perfect!
I will be coming back again for sure!

Thank you Lotus Honolulu!

Perfect hotel for our honeymoon

We stayed for 6 nights in the hotel and we have only good things to say about this place. Very nice and kind staff, well maintained and cleaned room, very comfortable bed, everything feels like new. It’s away from the Waikiki buzz, but not too much, making it simple to walk to the beach or make a quick drives to anywhere. It was the perfect choice for us.

Beautiful views

We loved that this place was away from all of the crowds and noise but was still easy to get to the beach. And the views of the beach and Diamondhead were amazing! Highly recommend this if you want a more calm place to stay.
