Great place to stay to get away from all the noise and mobs of Waikiki, but still close enough to have access to all of the activities. Rooms are very clean and stylish. Staff takes great care of you. Morimoto Waikiki is one of the best restaurants on the island. The staff at the pools make sure you don't go... More

I travel frequently and like to stay in boutique type hotels. I found The Modern Honolulu on-line and was not disappointed. The entire staff is superb. So welcoming and friendly. Was a nice quiet hotel away from all the swarms of people in the larger venues. I will be back again!

Firstly, the pictures on the website are a good reflection of the rooms, not something you can rely on in many other instances. The room was tastefully modern yet comfortable and practical, without being over the top. What really impressed me most was the service, which was impeccable. We had several special requests because of the little one, which were... More

I cannot rave enough about how Ashely Chang took care of my fiancée and I with arranging our engagment photo shoot. She was so helpful and her correspondence back and forth was very timely. Passion and Michelle in marketing also helped a great deal when we got there.

Couldn't praise this hotel more. If you're looking for a 5 star hotel away from all the crazy hustle and bustle of Waikiki but just a cab drive away if you do want to go there, the location is perfect. Modern, elegant, laid back but still sophisticated, it is also ideal if you don't want to be swamped by families... More

A very large group of us stayed after a wedding we had on the windward side of the island. The Modern was wonderful, a hotel like none i have ever stayed at before. Edgy, Crisp, Stylish and clean. hawaiian print was no where in sight and it was a great change up from the usual waikiki hotel. I loved the... More

Service was exceptional. The staff in their preppy cardigans (which we thought a little unusual for Hawaii, but I guess evoked a "country club" feel) were fantastic. The rooms were clean, sleek and definitely modern. The food was the best! I recommend the Beet Salad and Hommus Plate. Do not stay here if you want to be able to walk... More

We were treated like Royalty at the Modern Honolulu. Nikko Sibilia (conference service manager) took the utmost care of us upon arrival and during our stay. Due to an error in our reservation in no due part of the Modern Honolulu, we were stranded since the hotel at the time was 97% full. Nikko came to our rescue! He was... More

My partner and I stayed here for a total of four nights and we absolutely loved it, what a fantastic hotel. We stayed in an Ocean Front Suite (with a view of Diamond Head) and it was magical, we loved our room and the view was spectactular. The hotel had everything we wanted, the staff were superb, the onsite restaurant... More

We had a great time at the modern glad I read the reviews and booked partial ocean views we were on the 5th floor and couldn't fault the outlook. Service from everyone was exceptional just felt the carpets could do with cleaning and paint work needs a touch up but aside from that no complaints .
