Room nice, like a Hyatt Place with a ukulele. Staff really nice but location is flat out ugh. Ugly walk to beach, across from ABC and McDonalds. However, guests were the most interesting in Waikiki and the bar downstairs appears and disappears daily.

My first trip to Hawaii, I did it alone which was something I wanted to do for myself to try and force myself to relax, which Im not very good at. I chose the Modern not just based on recommendations from friends who have had stellar stays there but because I am not the type of person to do remote... More

We stayed in this hotel for 7 nights, and had an overall fantastic stay. Upon arriving very early in the morning, after a 24 hour flight / transit period, we were shown to our room immediately and were pleased not to have had to wander around for half a day waiting to check in. The hotel room was clean and... More

I'm a long time frequent traveller to Hawaii having begun my love affair some 38 years ago. For virtually all those years I stayed at the Hilton Hawaiin Village Alii tower. And I can't complain, it was pretty special, same room type, same long term staff in the more private tower on this massive property. First time I couldn't get... More

I travel frequently to Honolulu for work and each time I return to the Modern I'm treated with exceptional care. The staff is beyond attentive and they so it in a way that is casual and friendly. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. While sometimes the hotel is full so the pool area is a bit crowded, it is... More

My 3 day stay at the Modern Hotel was wonderful! Everyone from the time we set foot on the driveway until we left for the airport gave exceptional service. They were all friendly and could not do enough for us. I would like to give a special shout out to "Patience" the guest relations specialist. Patience not only is beautiful... More

We loved staying at the modern, we travelled with friends and both had a toddler. The location although a walk from town was perfect for us in getting out of the thick of the large resorts. We loved the asthetics of the hotel, enjoyed the room and found the city view was a great choice. we stayed at the Royal... More

Had a wonderful experience at this hotel. You are in the city but you are on the beach or at the pool with music piped underwater. Really a joyful experience. Excellent food. The stylish style of the rooms and pool area was a big draw for us. I was with my 5 years old and we stayed in the general... More
