Only complaint was if u are a light sleeper ask for a room facing Wikiki side, if u have a room on the side facing back towards airport expect alot of noise from the night club when everyone is...

Family vacation before the Christmas rush,so thrilled to stay at a hotel that was as good as advertised in every way. Tripadvisor you did good! Location perfect away from the maddening crowds of Waikiki but walking distance to Ala Moana shopping centre. Staff friendly and efficient and full of helpful tips for sightseeing, restaurants etc whenever asked. We ate by... More

This by far was overrated and a disappointment. Basic facilities. Not even a current iPod dock. Bed comfortable, service good. To get a late check out, of an extra hour we have to pay $90. If you don't want to be amidst the hustle and bustle then, this hotel would suit. I really am quite bewildered as to how this... More

I stayed for 2 nights at The Modern and couldn't be more impressed. The front desk staff are exceptional and I was very happy with the quality of the food at each of the restaurants including the lounge on the first floor. Had a perfect stay and will be back on our next trip.

Most of the hotels in Hawaii are large and basically for tourists. But The Modern Honolulu is the place where we can feel little different, special and private even though it is located in Waikiki. Size is perfect and all the services are great. This time, I organized the event at this hotel and all of my guests really enjoyed... More

I had the opportunity of visiting the Modern Honolulu on Thursday evening and I have to say, it was unlike anything I have ever experienced in Hawaii. The band of two ladies was out of this world, every song on my playlist - they performed. The vibe at this property is just spectacular. I would say this is the premier... More

Visited The Modern with my now wife as part of our honeymoon; the hotel does all the little things really well and you can see it's a place that cares about its guests. From the complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby to free WiFi to complimentary sunscreen by the pool, it's a place which looks after those that stay... More

We just completed a five-night stay at The Modern, and we loved every moment of our stay. Not an exaggeration, but every staff member who helped us provided world-class service. Also, the breakfasts were outstanding and, if your budget allows, a meal at Morimoto's is a must.

Trendy hotel. Amazing helpful staff. No beach, but who needs it with the fantastic pool areas . Location is average, but not far from everything. Only downside....... Ensure you get a room away from the roadside -because the traffic noise is unbearable!

Wasn't a huge fan of Waikiki but after staying at The Modern, my opinion has changed. The service is unparalleled. The rooms were comfortable and clean and had all the amenities including cute little pareo's hanging in the room to wear to the pool. The only issue for me was the fact that I was sharing a room and double... More
