A Great Hotel close to the Ala Moana shopping Centre (which is very extensive range of shops and goods) and opposite a great beach for surfing, swimming or walking. The hotel has spacious rooms with free Wi-Fi, and a restaurant called the Morimoto, which has a wonderful setting, overlooking the Yacht Harbour. The food is of the highest quality. The...

We had such a great time at The Modern Honolulu. The hotel staff (valet, front desk, pool, etc.) were incredibly welcoming and attentive. The location is great - far enough away from the crowded areas of Waikiki so that it's more quiet and relaxing but close enough that you can still easily experience all of Waikiki. The property is not...

The hotel staff are very welcoming and happy to assist with whatever is required. The rooms are very pleasant and a good size. The other amenities in the hotel also are very good, especially the pool area. The hotel is very convenient to both Waikiki, the huge shopping centre and many other attractions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would certainly go back again. We stayed for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon and got looked after from the start. The staff were very helpful and polite, especially the Bell Staff, and made our stay very enjoyable. The location of the hotel is perfect, just a few minutes from the best...

It was a pleasure to stay there. The hotel isn't a top choice for tourist masses, so we felt really comfortable. 15 min by foot to Waikiki beach, 10 minuted from Ala Moana shopping center. There is a small fitness studio (around 6 to 10 people can fit in), two swimming pools - small - rather for refreshing during sun...

Verley gave an amazing facial! I always go for the massage when I enjoy the spa but decided on a facial this time. It was so relaxing and by the end my face felt so refreshed and rejuvenated. The best perk is that you can hangout at the upstairs pool which is so relaxing! Make sure to try the chopped...

The hotel is beautiful and like the name- very modern. All the staff are extremely lovely and friendly and go above and beyond. There are 2 pools, one being adults only and both have nice bars. The frozen coconut mojito is a must try!! Also some of the bar snacks are really nice, like the naan bread and dips! Concierge...

The Modern is a renovated building - and one of the most modern hotels that I saw in the area. It has Nobu as its hotel restaurant. I was surprised to see how old the other hotels were so I was glad to be staying at The Modern. If you're there on a Friday - grab one of the tables...

We stayed at the Modern for the last part of our honeymoon and arrived quite late from Maui. We were not welcomed with the warmest aloha by the staff at the reception unfortunately. But our first impression changed quickly, the staff at the bar were really friendly and the food was great. In general, the staff were friendly, but there...

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.
