Nothing seems to be too much trouble. The concierges are fantastic and the reception and waiting staff are exceptional. We had a great room with sea views and could look down on the pool to check out the deckchair availability. Morning coffee is free. Gym is good with the right equipment in good order, even foam rolls. They organised tours... More

The Modern is located further away from the main Waikiki beaches which can be considered a blessing. ( you're 10 minutes easy walk from the Ala Moana Centre) The rooms are....well, modern and very clean!) If you need 2 double beds you wont get a balcony but there is a king studio suite with a corner lounge suite that becomes... More

A very satisfying trip to Oahu and Waikiki in particular. Having stayed on Oahu before right on Waikiki, we wanted something slightly away from the frantic pace of that area, but still conveniently placed and the Modern fulfilled all we needed. Well laid out, luxurious, with attentive staff and a beautiful rear pool and deck area with a great view... More

From the valet guys, to the front desk (Shanelle & Christopher S.) to the pool servers, and the housekeepers, everyone was extremely friendly, helpful, and very professional! I've worked in the hospitality industry for over 10 years (Four Seasons) and I am always very critical of the places I stay and notice every little detail so it's a little more... More

We had an extremely nice stay at the Modern Honolulu. We found all of the staff from the bellmen, parking valets, housekeeping, general maintenance, concierge, and front desk to be extremely welcoming and friendly. The staff genuinely seem to enjoy being at the hotel which makes it feel less like a hotel and more like you are truly a guest... More

From the second we pulled up to the valet area to the moment we pulled away, this hotel and its staff were amazing. The staff at the front desk were exceptional and took care of everything for us. We stayed in an ocean view suite and it was exactly as advertised. We will definitely go back.

My wife and I attended a military ball at The Modern this weekend and decided to get a room for the night. We were able to check in early and enjoy a great lunch by the pool. We also enjoyed a few drinks while lounging by the pool on the day beds they have available. Staff was very friendly and... More

My wife and I came to Hawaii for our 2nd anniversary and decided to stay at this hotel. It is in a great location away from the craziness of Waikiki beach, but close enough to walk to (about 20 min walk). They only have valet parking, but the service is great and they get you the car pretty quickly. We... More

We were extremely pleased with the modern's rooms and facilities- the spa- whilst very expensive was AMAZING!!! The service at the pool bar was hit and miss but the cocktails were spectacular. The bar behind the bookshelf was just cool- no other way to describe it :) Concierge were very helpful booking day tours and suggesting fun things to do... More

I am rewriting my review of this hotel as my first one was too critical of a few minor points. Firstly, the team here work hard to make your stay epic. The concierge is exceptional and the housekeeping do an immense job of keeping this hotel CLEAN. We had a couple of issues with food and the management work sincerely... More
