    The concierge at any hotel in Hawaii will be your number one stop for activities, tours and things to do. We booked our parasailing, jet skiing, and a luau. Upon checkout we received the bill and charge for the luau seemed a bit high, but we were in a hurry and didn't want to miss our flight, so we paid... More

    Couple from London - Stayed for 12 nights in February 2015. Cannot recommend this hotel enough especially for couples. First time in Honolulu and it is the best trip we have ever made to the US - we have visited cities such as San Fran, New York, Boston, Orlando, Miami. Everything about it is perfect - rooms, service, atmosphere. 10mins... More

    I have visited Honolulu more than 20 times over the last few years and have had the great fortune of staying at the Modern on multiple occasions. On each occasion it has felt like the already terrific service at the Modern has gotten better each time. What is most impressive is the consistent quality in service from the valet service... More

    For the second week of our honeymoon we stayed at The Modern Honolulu. I've stayed at some pretty nice hotels but this was by far the best! The hotel decor was just fabulous, minimalistic but catering for every comfort one could need. additionally there was a fragrance throughout the building; it was very fresh and nostalgic.

    We chose to stay here again on our recent trip and booked two rooms for the three of us. Again, it was a great stay. Staff are friendly and attentive in all areas of the hotel. Some areas of the bathroom look like it could do with a very good scrub, but apart from that, would definitely stay here again.... More

    We very much enjoyed staying at the Modern Honolulu and would stay there again. It's got a chic modern design with many interesting features setting for a very relaxing environment once you enter the premises. Having Morimoto Japanese restaurant on the grounds is another big plus.
