We enjoyed our 4 nights at the Modern. Fresh, light, pared back rooms with cute inclusions and very comfortable bed. Traveling with our fourteen year old daughter the 2 queen size bed/double room option gave us plenty of space. Poolside breakfast each morning was good, and concierge services were very efficient in organising day tours for us at short notice.... More

We stayed 13 nights at the Modern Hotel and have a really enjoyable stay. The hotel is not too big in size and the location is great, where you are within walking distance of the main Waikiki resort, without the noise and crowds being with you 100% of the time. We had a partial ocean view room, which overlooked the... More

Great hotel great food a beautiful time over all. Very professional and friendly staff helped us find things to do around town. The room was very clean and modern hints the name. The pool was great with nice view of the boats kids loved it. Short hike to the mall and a great beach park Thanks for the great time

My friend and I spent the whole day at the Sunrise Pool Bar for her birthday, laying in the cabanas and eating. It was Awesome!! Living in Honolulu, we had heard a lot about The Modern Honolulu and it's many luxurious amenities. Being a kama'aina, truthfully we don't actually venture into Waikiki very often unless it's for something special. Let... More

Very well presented hotel. Absolutely no issues with our stay. Staff were friendly and service was excellent. Bed was very firm. Price was more than a lot of other hotels in Waikiki but no complaints about the standard of accommodation for the price paid. Would have been nice to see basic cutlery and plates / cups / glasses in the... More

I would recommend The Modern to anyone looking for a place to stay in Honolulu. First of all I'd have to mention the service. I was travelling solo and The Modern front of house staff and valet staff always made me feel recognized and welcome from the time I left in the morning til the time I got back. The... More

Stayed in this hotel for 8 nights in September last year. The Hotel was everything you would want from this hotel, which overlooks the marina on the edge of wahiki beach. Upon arrival to the hotel, my luggage was taken from myself, to be delivered to my room after check in. Check in was smooth and efficient, and a nice... More

At the start I didn't think the hotel was anything extraordinary as i have stayed at many excellent hotels throughout Asia where everything has been outstanding, however after our flights were cancelled and then we relocated to another highly rated hotel in Waikiki i realised how excellent this hotel actually was. The hotel was very clean and very modern. The... More

This past winter, I decided to celebrate my college graduation at my favorite hotel on Oahu, The Modern Hotel! The Study Bar: This is where we hosted nearly 50 of my closest friends and family.
