Hotels in Waikiki can be pretty hit-and-miss (read some of my previous reviews if you want some evidence). You can stay in Waikiki on a budget but you'll regret it and you'll spend your time questioning your life choices. Or you can spend Russian oligarch money and do it in style, but you'll either need to sell a kidney on... More

One word. wow! You walk into the reception feeling like you've walked into the hamptons! Beautiful decor, friendly concierge and reception! They made sure you were aware of all the services and amenities available. We were fortunately upgraded to a partial ocean room which we were so grateful for. The rooms are immaculately cleaned, modern furnishings and great condition. The... More

Contemporary , modern style which is rare to find in Waikiki . Great location. Great service . Decent size pool which again is rare in Waikiki . Noise is a problem, we had to ask for a less noisy room as we got no sleep on our first night. Our second room was much better. Other than the noise, I... More

Spent a wonderful, glorious day at the poolside daybed with my grandkids at this lovely hotel. Everyone seems happy to be working here, always smiling and very attentive to our needs. Excellent service and staff, very good food and drinks, would love to do this every single day!!

Ok this is a very groovy hotel and we had a great stay, but we are not 20 something's without kids which maybe their target as the pool bars have every non-cashed up wannabe in HNL drawn to its music and drinks in the hope of who knows what. The location is good as it away from the noise of... More

The Modern Honolulu has become a great staycation for us. Returned again for another weekend getaway and had the best stay yet. The staff remembered me and were very welcoming. This time we discovered the lobby bar and enjoyed the live music, it was great!

Stayed with my boyfriend for a few nights, it was the best ever! Everyone was friendly, provided great service, and of course the rooms and facilities were very clean and comfortable. Love their "modern" concept as well. Very trendy. We would definitely come back!

We celebrated our anniversary at the Modern, from the moment we arrived the staff was incredible. Our room was clean and inviting, very spa/resort feel. We ordered appetizers from room service and the food was excellent. The next day we spent at the pool, the pool staff is very accommodating. Dinner at Morimoto is amazing. We will be back to...
