The Modern: by definition the only hotel (bar the Trump) which evokes a charming european boutique hotel in an otherwise dull affair when it comes to hotels. Although Honolulu could be considered a small Miami (except for the nightlife which seems to shut down way to early), most hotels are stuck in the 70s and cater to your typical Cancun... More

Our sixth annual Shakacon IT Security Conference was held at The Modern Honolulu for the first time this past June and it was nothing short of a 5-Star experience to say the least. Great location, very modern and chic venue! Everyone at The Modern Honolulu from the valet, pool, catering, and AV staff and management were all very welcoming and... More

In a city full of dated, overpriced hotels, The Modern is a clear stand out. I am constantly staggered with what some Honolulu hotels get away with. Daggy, heavy wooden furniture, bathrooms dating back to the 70's and prices that are outlandish - and all because they can boast a beachfront location. This is our fourth stay at the Modern... More

I chose this hotel based on the comments here for my first trip to Hawai'i. Granted, this hotel screams nothing about Hawai'i and the decor is contemporary, this is the place to stay. When our friends heard that I was staying here, they asked about it and wished that they had gone with their first instinct in booking The Modern.... More

With the beach front hotels booked out for our first days in Waikiki, I chose this hotel just because it sounded great. And it was. Great attention to detail with making most things effortless. Swift checkin with minimal time spent on formalities. Fabulous up to date decor, comfy beds, great bathrooms and an easy poolside area with good music, polite,friendly... More

Apart from the late checkin (at 3pm) everything was great. Great rooms, modern look and excellent service. The amenities and WiFi are good and the restaurant does excellent food, especially the breakfast and sushi. Worth trying ! The pool is great and it's really nice to just sit there and relax. It's very close to the beach and to a... More

What a great hotel! Recently I sent a technology company from Northern CA for "company thank you" trip. Patricia in sales and the rest of the hotel team was amazing to work with and willing to work with us on our very specific needs! I would highly recommend this hotel! It also has amazing options for dining and the top... More

We had a wonderful stay at The Modern Hotel. It was perfect! The location (right on the beach), the room (bright and spacious), the food (Morimoto) and most of all, the nightlife (The Study & Addiction) were great! Situated on one end of Waikiki, it is a perfect spot for exploring ALL that Honolulu has to offer.

The service was impeccable, didn't matter how early or how late the staff were all very helpful and friendly and they would go out of their way to assist you, from the second I set foot into the hotel and checked in, to when I checked out. The hotel itself was beautiful,at a great location just out of the main... More

Stayed with my parents there for 4 nights. They were very accommodating and friendly. We stayed in a partial ocean view room that worked out great! Had a great view of the city and the ocean :) The rooms are simply furnished and very spacious. I really like their decor concept of simple and un-cluttered comfort. There is no coffee... More
