The Modern is by far the best hotel in Waikiki - great location close to Ala Moana, the beach and lagoon, and a nice walk along the beach in to the centre of Waikiki. The rooms and public areas were always spotless, we loved the modern styling with a nice touch of Hawaiian decorations. The smell in the lobby is...

I expected more from The Modern - having read years ago about its arrival in Honolulu it has been on my radar for some time. Although The Modern offers something more contemporary than your typical Hawaiian hotel, it seems to be missing soul - the warmth that you expect when you're visiting the islands. The layout of the lobby doesn't...

Dear Jeff-Melnyk, I am so very sorry that The MODERN did not meet your expectations. It must have been very disappointing for you to have not had the experience your were hoping for. Your check in wait time is not acceptable and are very sorry that you had to wait. We do appreciate your valuable feedback and want to ensure...

Our little family needed a relaxing break after a busy time welcoming a newborn and having busy lives. We chose The Modern after reading great reviews and my partner recommending it as a travel agent but never having been there. We can honestly say we were treated with care and attention from the moment the taxi pulled up. The concierge...

Great location, where you can easily walk to restaurants and bars in Waikiki, or sit at the gorgeous pool and relax with a cocktail (a bit pricey, but everything on the water in Waikiki is!). The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel isn't that large, so it never felt overly crowded even...

Alittle on the spendy side, but it was quiet and nicely furnished. The included breakfast was good and the brewed coffee was perfect, so there was no need for us to order a specialty coffee for morning. Had a lanai that looked over the pools and ocean and gave us a view of the fireworks in the lagoon at night....

Lovely hotel -great location. Staff are so helpful! Convenient to Ala Moana where I had work. Not right in downtown Waikiki but that is what I wanted. Fantastic drinks at the poolside bar. My second time staying here and even my fussy husband was impressed.

Very cool lobby, "sexy" pool, nice staff,clean,and good location. 5-10mins walk to Ala moana shopping center and Beach park. 3 mins to hilton beach park. It has a great restaurant at the pool but also a very famous japanese restaurant Morimoto at 2nd flood. They both have sunset view. All the staff were very friendly. Coolest hotel in Hawaii.

I travel to Hawaii for vacation and business; this hotel is hands down the best with delivering an exceptional experience time and time again. The minimalistic décor and laid back Hawaiian vibe add to a relaxing environment. My family and business partners alike enjoy the cuisine and beautiful ambiance. I have frequented dozens of HonoluIu Hotels and this one has...

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.
