The staff were friendly! We could not fault any of the staff from room service, reception staff, organizing car hire for the day to surprise cookies in our room!

The perfect balance between Honolulu business and an island vacation, without the hustle and chaos of other Waikiki properties. The hotel has an intimate relaxed atmosphere despite being in the heart of shopping and dining options.

I booked a last minute trip to Hawaii for myself and wanted to stay somewhere nice. The pictures online looked good and I guess that coupled with the name had me looking forward to a nice comfortable stay. The term "Modern" is a bit of a stretch. Basically its an old hotel with a touch of paint and a new...

First time at the Lather spa. Environment is ok, but therapist Elena is wonderful. I had 100 min swedish and Elena applied lovely techniques that i had not experienced before. She's fluid, great tempo and pressure, and relaxing. Perfect for the "chill out and let yourself enjoy" sessions. I'll be scheduling her again. Thanks Elena!

Lovely ocean view room with a balcony. Was extremely clean Our bed was quite firm, but we asked for an overlay and it made all the difference. Concierge staff were extremely helpful with booking attractions and advice with what to see on the Island

Nice Room, decent hotel, just off the main drag of wakiki so quieter area - room service food was excellent - comparable to anything bought outside in both quality and cost - would recommend it to any one thinking of a week in Hawaii

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfectly situated, THE MODERN HONOLULU stands at the epicenter between the world renowned Hawaiian experience of Waikiki Beach, the blossoming Kaka’ako arts district, and Honolulu’s downtown cosmopolitan scene. We are the hub of contemporary culture and creativity in Honolulu. Our boutique luxury is as refined as it is relaxed. An empowered team delivers THE MODERN HONOLULU experience -- alluring, personalized and innovative – surrounded by an award winning design concept that creates an urban chic beach aesthetic. LATHER spa features treatments developed around the purest products in the world -- natural, organic, and sustainable. Local and house-made culinary menus are offered for poolside and in-room dining, complemented by RAVISH Restaurant which blends our Island’s bounty with Asian flavors and South American tastes creating a true Pacific Rim experience. Two stylish pools overlook the ocean for daytime fun while a vibrant scene at The Study lobby bar is the spot for an evening rendezvous. It’s no wonder Thrillist magazine called us “The best boutique hotel in Hawaii.” ... more   less
