You can't miss the white passion in the hotel. I loved the wooden blinds, the ukulele, the ckourful scarves and the star fish decor. It really gave the room an indoor beach kinda-feel. And the view from the one kfnthe rooms was breath taking; we could we 2 pools plus the lake all at once. It really felt like summer... More

The good stuff: big nice clean and modern rooms, superb service at every turn, fun bar at pool and also cozy inside bar behind library "door." The not-so-good-stuff: 15 min walk to downtown Waikiki, no beach (at all - none, zip), pool gets crowded at busy times (to be expected in Waikiki). All in all I loved it but won't... More

From the time you check in and meet the super friendly staff and then check into your room (we stayed in a King Room with Ocean View - Level 8), you are instantly relaxed and extremely content to be here! We were fortunate enough to stay at the Modern for 8 nights this month and we enjoyed every minute. The... More

My daughter and fiance chose The Modern for their wedding venue so my husband and I reserved a three night stay there. The room was spotless, comfortable "modern" beds and the bathroom had a huge shower and lovely amenities. We were pleasantly surprised when we received a complimentary upgrade to an ocean view. The wedding was spectacular on the terrace... More

Aloha! My stay at the Modern was excellent. From the moment I checked in, the customer service I received was amazing. I was treated with a welcome beverage & hand towel which was a fabulous way to begin my stay. The amenities at the hotel were very "modern" & up to date. I loved the decor & lighting in the... More

After a long flight we were greeted by the valet staff and they took care of our bags for us. They were very friendly and helpful. The front desk service was fantastic the minute we walked in she let us take our time checking in and told us our room wouldn't be ready until midday when check out was. We... More

My husband and I have just had a week long vacation in Honolulu and stayed at The Modern for the week. When we first arrived I wondered if it would have been better to have been closer to Waikiki Central but after a stroll down Waikiki beach where it is tourist central and people and kids everywhere we soon realised...
