Stayed at the Modern for 3 nights in mid-October for a business conference on property. We arrived after a relaxing 4 days on the North Shore and once we were in our corner ocean view suite, it felt like we were still at the beach. The rooms are cool, minimalist white with simple décor that provided a relaxed but upscale... More

When we first arrived, I thought this hotel was for the young! All the staff are young. Being in our mid fifties, we had read the reviews and requested a quiet room on a higher floor. On check in, we reiterated this, but we're told the occupancy was 100%, and the best they could offer was the third floor. I... More

I stayed at The Modern for three nights in April 2014 for a business trip. Here's the lowdown. Pros: - convenient location near many different commercial establishments. Right across the street, there is a mini-mall that has car rental agencies, eateries, gift shops, etc. It is also walking distance to the beach (note that it doesn't exactly sit on the... More

I am a DJ and travel all over the world to play different nightclubs and events. I stayed at The Modern as I was playing at their nightclub, Addiction, one night during my stay. On my way to the hotel I was immediately impressed with its location. It is in the best area of the island and has gorgeous views... More

My wife and I have been to Hawaii well over 70 times, both for work and play. Never have we stayed in a place like The MODERN...ever! It was fantastic. And it was an incredible experience to have customer service sneak up on you. What I mean is, the staff at The MODERN make you feel like you are being... More

I've been doing weddings for over 10 years here on Oahu. I've worked at numerous hotels in Waikiki and I am in awe of The Modern Honolulu. My first meeting with Reese Helman she immediately asked to exchange phone numbers. That has NEVER happened. Usually when I ask they tell me to pick up a house phone which is totally... More

Good live music in the bar and some good acoustic stuff by the pool. Nice and quite but walking distance to town. If you are going to Hawaii you must stay... More

From arrival to departure ( 15 days ) we enjoyed a level of consistently high Customer Service which we have rarely received in many Hotels throughout the World. Staff smile,acknowledge you, ( usually by name) and cannot do enough to assist you. The location ,away from Hustle and Bustle, was relaxing and the Pool Areas were first class. The beach... More

My husband and I stayed here for our Anniversary and had stayed previously two years ago for our Honeymoon. We choose The Modern because of it's sexy, adult ambiance. The drinks and food are incredible and they service is impeccable. However, the hotel pool has been COMPLETELY overrun by children with the worst parents ever. And when I say children,... More
