Here on the quiet side of Waikiki, between Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head, you can sleep with the windows open. A former W Hotel property, the Lotus was updated with dark hardwood floors, platform beds, granite-tiled bathrooms, and—in the corner units—a lanai and window that frame Diamond Head beautifully. Little touches like morning yoga classes in the park make for a welcoming boutique experience.
