The Modern Hotel was exactly what my girlfriend and I were looking for this Memorial Day weekend! From the service to the hotel grounds! There pool area is also very stylish, it makes feel like you're in a upscale LA setting with a Hawaiian vibe. I would give this hotel 34 stars if I could! - Jason Cutinella

Stayed here for 3 nights in December just before our 7 day Island cruise on the Pride Of America. We've stayed previously at the Trump Waikiki which was fantastic and so didn't have as high expectations of this hotel . But the Modern is every bit as good as the Trump. In fact in some aspects were better. The location... More

The Modern Honolulu is sleek, modern, hip, and within walking distance of many of the wonders of Waikiki. Plus, it smells nice. Common rooms are infused with a lovely, subtle fragrance that reminds you that you are, indeed, in paradise. Everything is designed to please. The main pool area is especially beautiful, with adjoining open air dining for breakfast or... More

We were lucky enough to spend our last days in Hawaii at The MODERN and they made it so hard to leave! The staff is genuinely friendly and helpful - the rooms are IMMACULATELY well kept, and being that it's one of the trendiest places around the world town to be and be seen at, you're instantly cooler just by...

My two girlfriends and I just got back from a 5 night stay at The Modern and had a really great time! The service was great, the rooms were really nice, and super clean. The pool was beautiful and the coconut mojitos are a must! The club on sight is super convenient and a lot of fun! Also Morimoto's is... More

We spent a week here earlier in the month for our first visit to Hawaii. The Modern Hotel was in a perfect position for us right by the marina for a beautiful outlook and in between the fabulous Waikiki beach and the equally fabulous Ala Moana shopping centre - both easy walks. We had a beachfront suite with 2 decks... More

From the moment of our arrival, the service made us feel special and well taken care of. It's the service we received that makes the Modern Hotel a real standout from the rest. No matter who was providing the service--all employees were friendly, helpful, and eager to please. We were upgraded to a room with an ocean view and terrace... More

The Modern is the right place to stay in Honolulu. Friendly staff, nice rooms, good service. The pool aera is like a oasis in the Honolulu concrete jungle! If possible, book a room facing the pool and harbor aera. It's less noisy. I will definitively return to the Modern Honolulu.

Walking in for the first time there is a nice friendly vibe, from the bellboys to the front desk we felt welcomed!A lovely chilled lemon water & fresh towel were offered as a refreshment by the front desk young lady, which was a nice touch. The room was extremely well appointed & very very clean, with a modern feel &... More

We stayed in April this year for 6 nights and loved it! All the staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean, had some lovely quirky touches (check the bookcase out in the Lobby), nice touches in the room (sarongs for you to borrow & a ukelele if you want to entertain yourselves) and modern (clue is in...
