The Modern hotel is truly one of those places that leave a lasting memory the minute you depart. Located conveniently central Honolulu, you are in walking distance to the downtown strip, the beach, restaurants and all the amenities one would need. The hotel has 2 main pools, named accordingly as Sunrise and Sunset. Both provide that tranquil Hawaiian vibe. Chill... More

Some hotels have cottoned on to "what travellers really want". There is a new breed of hotels oriented in particular towards the frequent traveller (especially business travellers) who have dispensed with some of the junk that traditional luxury hotels routinely lay on: the silly little bottles of booze in the minibars, the grand marbled entrance, the liveried bellhops...In place thereof...

I just stayed at The Modern with several people in my group while working in Hawaii. The hotel was great and the service was great. Cassie Simpson made all of our crazy last minute requests work out beautifully. I look forward to staying there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon in Hawaii. When we checked in they upgraded our room to an ocean sea front view and the room was beautiful. The uncomfy bed was the only con. The hotel staff were very helpful and breakfast by the pool was lovely. Would recommend. It was also located in the... More

Spent 8 night here over Christmas and have nothing but praise for staff and amenities alike. This isn't a massive hotel complex, but not small, either. I would say, if you are looking foe=r a hotel that is big enough to have all of the modern services (pools, spas, restaurants, gift shop, concierge) but not so big as to be... More

If you are looking for a hip, stylish boutique hotel in Oahu. I would say "The Modern" is the place for you. The front desk staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very clean and the beds are really comfy. If you can try to get a room facing the harbor that view is really pretty. Try to get... More

We stayed here for 6 days. The hotel is very nice and staff are very helpful. Our room was on the city side and was well appointed on the 4th floor. A little far from the main Waikiki avenue and restaurants but i don't mind walking (keep in mind if you are elderly or have small children). HOWEVER, when the... More

As soon as we arrived in the cab, they took our bags and tagged them to bring them up to our room for us. We were ushered towards the front desk and we received a welcome cool towel and drink as we checked in. The entire stay was similar.

A friend suggested that I try out The Modern. I normally stay more downtown in the thick of things, so I thought that this might be a nice change of pace. The room was clean and furnished in a minimalistic style. The service from all of the staff I encountered was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Even the house... More
