We had a corner premium room on the 8th floor. The website was accurate as you can see diamond head from the room. You just feel very relaxed when you enter the room. The bed was so comfy. The hotel is just located past Waikiki beach. Dining and shopping only 10 minute walk. Its quiet at night. The staff was...

We spent another few days at the Lotus and as always, upon arrival, realize why we keep coming back. Great location, friendly staff and nice rooms. What's not to love? Really like the Premium Ocean Rooms with two lanai.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We had a room on the 12th floor. The room was updated, spacious and comfortable. The view from the balcony over the ocean was gorgeous as was the view from the open walkway outside our room. It looked back at Waikiki, in all its glory. At night the view was even...

We were very pleased with this hotel after trying to choose from an overwhelming selection of resorts/hotels in the Waikiki area. I am so glad we went with the Lotus. It was very modern, and very clean. It is situated at the far end of Waikiki so it is quiet and you face a park and Diamond Head. I recommend...

I went to grad school at UH and so my husband and I lived on Oahu in the late 90's for 3 years. Of course when we lived there we never went to Waikiki! But for a long weekend getaway with our two young teenagers we wanted somewhere they could go to the beach or get an ice cream within...

I had only 3 days here, will book more next time. The room was the entry level room but compared to most rooms in this chicken coup paradise, it is huge. And the lanai is twice the size of lanais at hotels twice the price. Negatives: no breakfast apart from hot tea and coffee and hot chocolate. They offered some...

I booked my hotel for our trip to Honolulu after having read a few reviews about it on TripAdvisor. The actual experience, however, was better than we had expected. Aqua Lotus Honolulu is tucked away in a very quaint part of Waikiki, right at the foot of Diamond Head. It's far away enough that you can get away from the...

We were there with our daughter and her husband. Perfect view of the beach without being right on it and a great view od Diamond Head. Rooms were very clean, amenities were great, worth the cost of the room. Valet parking. Would return to this hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful.
