Very comfortable stay for the first 4 nights of our honeymoon. Ocean View King Room very nice indeed, with superb amenities, would definitely recommend. No recognition that it was our honeymoon, despite pre-advising, would be the only complaint! :-(

We stayed at The Modern for 6 nights and we had a room overlooking the two hotel pools as well as the mariner and the beach. The staff are extremely professional, friendly and helpful. There was nothing they would do to make our stay wonderful. The Hotel itself doesn't have a beach front but we actually found that an advantage... More

I really liked this hotel. It was very trendy and "modern" just like the name suggests. Check-in was great and we felt very welcome. My only issue with the hotel was that the noise on the street level was horrendous. Bring earplugs as that was the only way I was able to sleep.

Awesome place, great food and even better service. Had adjoining rooms for us and kids and it couldn't have been better so far. Pool area is cool and plenty of adult space of required upstairs. Food here is really good whether it's the Japanese or any of the other choices. Cool bars as well. So far, magic.

The service professionals here are truly professional here. Everyone, including housekeeping, valet's, and pool deck attendants make an effort to be friendly and attentive. I moved here after a two-week stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village a few doors down the beach, and the service at the Hilton did not even come close to that at the Modern. Food and... More

I stayed two nights on the way back from Seattle to Tokyo. The facility (including room, gym and pool area), services and food are more than I expected. The staff service is friendly and nice. The room is cleanly maintainced. From the pool area, you can enjoy a great view of yacht harbour. With such a short stay, you can... More

Great modern (sorry) hotel with excellent staff and facilities. The view tends to be of the hotel unless your room faces away from Waikiki. The hotel is at the far end of Waikiki which has the advantage of being a less crowded but does require a bit of walking to get to centre of the action. I would strongly recommend... More

The stay here was really nice and relaxing. The hosts and waiters were very friendly and welcoming from check- in to check-out... I would definitely recommend someone staying at this hotel. The bedrooms are lovely with great views. And the pool side is wonderful . They have an adult pool and a pool for everyone. Also there is a restaurant... More
