This is a fantastic hotel with a gorgeous view and clean comfortable and aesthetically pleasing rooms! Love the platform beds and the bathrooms are gorgeous. Ricardo and his staff were all extremely helpful and couldn't have been more pleasant. The sunset pool for adults only, is a little piece of heaven and the daybeds at the Sunrise pool are to... More

Beautiful hotel, convenient location, friendly staff, great amenities, wonderful experience! I came to The Modern when I first moved to Honolulu and the staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and offer suggestions for things to do around town. Loved The Study (bar with cool entry through a bookcase downstairs)- great happy hour!

I had a fabulous time the week of 4th of July at the Modern. The staff is very attentive, friendly and professional. The location is ideal because it isn't in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but still close enough to be there in 10 mins or less to enjoy all of the great shopping. The rooms... More

If you are planning a vacation to Hawaii this hotel is the place to stay. The Modern in Waikiki has a very helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The hotel is in a perfect location. So if you want to go to either Waikiki or Ala Moana to shop, go to the beach or just... More

Had a wonderful time at The Modern. Right from the moment we were greeted at the check-in desk service was exceptional. Facilities are amazing - a chilled bar behind the bookcase that opens each night, nightclub, Iron Chef's restaurant, amazing pools (family and adult only), not to mention the amazing design and chic pieces throughout that you can buy! This... More

We stayed for a short four night break in July. We had booked a city view room which by the way had a gorgeous water view as we'll (8th Floor). The room and bathroom were very clean, spacious and modern. A nightly turn down service was great and the cookies were a nice treat. The location is great, only a... More

This is probably the hippest place to stay in Honolulu -- mainly because they have a cool lounge beyond a rotating bookcase, that is filled to the max on Saturday nights and the hottest nightclub. The service is very helpful and excellent. Breakfast is great here. We liked the room, but the reason I'm giving it 4 stars is that... More

Everything about this hotel has a relaxed feel, but the staff are really professional. It is tucked around the corner from all the busyness of main Waikiki and that's what makes the location so great. We stopped in and had a drink at the Royal Hawaiian one night and it was horrendous, awful service, olde world lobby but in a... More

We came from Israel to celebrate our anniversari in Hawaii. We chose this hotel because we read excellent reviews and because of its location. I must say that staying at this hotel exceeded our expectations! The ocean view room we got was absolutely amazing. But I want to say a few words about the friiendly and helpful staff we encountered.... More
