I am usually a lengthy reviewer but will keep this one short - literally everything really is as good as they say except one small point we couldn't figure out: why would such a new modern hotel not be built with any soundproofing!? Both outdoor and hallway doors, so noisy, and we stayed 14th floor. Apart from this, bring earplugs... More

Perhaps ironically, Waikiki is hard-pressed for quality hotels. The Modern is a refreshing oasis of style, simplicity, and ease that makes for a great visit whether for a vacation or a quick business trip. I'm a loyalist.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel but it's location and the nightclub below lost it a star. The thing that I liked the most at The Modern was the service - all the staff were very professional, considerate and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Well done. The "adult" pool is aesthetically pleasing but it is only 6... More

We stayed here for the back end of our honeymoon and it was a perfect end to our Hawaii adventure. Cool, light, comfortable rooms with all the amenities you need, and the ability to ask for whatever extras you need. Great, friendly staff including an awesome concierge desk who can recommend and arrange anything you want. Very cool lounge bar,... More

We knew from the outset that our stay would be great, having received a very warm welcome from Robert. Christopher, from the front desk and housekeeping were also very accommodating of our needs. Our room was very spacious and clean. This hotel is... More

Average Hotel, great location though but did have an issue in my first room, due to fleas bought in from the fridge they bought to the room. The Hotel moved us to an upgraded room and refunded all car parking fees as compensation. I did loose a day getting treatment for the bites from the fleas. The hotel took the... More

The most relaxing day I've had all year! Lounging at the top pool on a floating matt, taking a nap on their luxurious day bed while overlooking Waikiki, my new favorite drink (coconut mojito) in hand! Not to mention, amazing service from Patience Benson, who made sure that me and my friends were well taken care of the entire day.... More

It's our third visit here, and it does not disappoint. On our most recent stay we were just here for the night but the room was ready early, we called down to ask about access to a kettle then they brought one up within 5 minutes, then we asked about access to a microwave to warm our baby's food and...
