We were extremely pleased with the modern's rooms and facilities- the spa- whilst very expensive was AMAZING!!! The service at the pool bar was hit and miss but the cocktails were spectacular. The bar behind the bookshelf was just cool- no other way to describe it :) Concierge were very helpful booking day tours and suggesting fun things to do... More

I am rewriting my review of this hotel as my first one was too critical of a few minor points. Firstly, the team here work hard to make your stay epic. The concierge is exceptional and the housekeeping do an immense job of keeping this hotel CLEAN. We had a couple of issues with food and the management work sincerely... More

I'm not sure where to start but to say that we are so impressed with THE MODERN HONOLULU and here is why... We recently stayed and got married at THE MODERN. Our great experience started early with many detailed email communications with Ashley Chang, Catering Sales Manager. Having never been to THE MODERN, never planned a wedding, living in GA,... More

The best hotel on Oahu! Staff is amazing and extremely friendly! The bartender Zazu would have a coconut mojito ready for me before I even approached the bar to ask for one! The pool staff from bartenders (Bryant, Geoff and Taylor) to servers (Tiani) to rec attendants (Andrew and Stanley) are amazing and so helpful. Breakfast is outstanding (breakfast burrito)!... More

If I owned or designed a hotel, it would oddly similar to The Modern. It's trendy, peaceful, and offers all around good vibes. I love the pool deck in the evening, it's elegant meets bohemian meets dream wedding location. Also, they have live music nightly. And not the usual Hawaiian tunes. When you live in Hawaii, the last song you... More

Virginia, our server, was prompt and immediate when it came to our service. The bar team catered to our party's needs and kept the drinks coming. Caleb, the manager I believe, checked in with us continuously and was very friendly and attentive. Overall, we spent about 3 days here and I cannot recommend this location any more highly. Spend as... More

Would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay in Waikiki. The staff were lovely in all areas of the hotel. The pool area is good, when we were there loungers were always available. The underwater speakers in the pool are also pretty awesome. All the food that we ate here was delicious and portion sizes were really good -... More

I picked this hotel based on the good reviews, but worrying if it'll be a very lousy place due to the nightclub and such, also worrying the design tends to be flimsy like some of the other boutique hotel. I was over-worried, we were so satisfied with many small details. 1) Staff is so well trained, even when there're hiccups,... More

Fabulous hotel, location is perfect in that the 'heart' of Waikiki is a 10 min walk in one direction , and Ala Moana shopping centre being a 10 min walk in the other direction. Staff and service was outstanding, with the room and food being excellent. Thank you !
