Visited The Modern a couple of weeks ago with my two friends (all girls) for a week. Upon arrival we were told we only had a double room despite booking a family room and were offered an inflatable bed as compensation! After spending a night on this I asked if we could move rooms the following day which we did.... More

Nice hotel but not great. Not good for families at all. We were travelling as a couple so not too bad for us. Very busy nightclub downstairs making the hotel very busy on a Friday and Saturday and very loud so always ask for a high room as the noise is immense. Good location to Ala Moana and some restaurants.... More

I have a friend who stays at the Modern every time she's in Honolulu; my birthday was coming up and she said I should celebrate with a mini break at The Modern. The service was impeccable from beginning to end; valet, front desk staff, housekeeping, The Study, the pool (we reserved a day bed - I highly recommend it!)...so many... More

The Modern perfectly describes the décor of the hotel. It is modern by design, but also comfortable and welcoming. I felt very "at home" in my room, and the light colors are very soothing. I enjoyed dining at Morimoto and The Study as well as room service, and the food was excellent all around. I look forward to my next... More

We were recommended this resort by our agent. We travelled with our girls in their late teens. We had a family room but I think it was the size of a standard room with 2 double beds squeezed into the same space. Way too small for us. We were stepping over suitcase. We didn't have a balcony either so we... More

Moderately clean and modern hotel although location is removed from the central part of Honolulu where all the other hotels are situated therefore commuting by taxi is the preferred option as opposed to walking in particular at night. On checkin staff could improve on advising guests of all facilities available and recommendations close by to enhance the experience.

This was the second stop of our honeymoon after visiting San Francisco and 1 of two hotels in Hawaii. The most thankful decision looking back was choosing this hotel. We almost didn't go for this, my wife was unsure due to the modern, contemporary look, the fact it had a night club attached and it was a bit far out... More

We were delighted from the moment we arrived, quirky, cool reception and modern clean room. Lovely adult only pool and busier family pool! Perfect that a choice is available. Lovely staff who circulated with cups of water and free sun cream available. Miromoto restaurant had the best food I ever tasted! Although, portions are smallllllll and it is pricey, it... More
