We stayed at the Modern during October 2014, and recommend it to everyone. The hotel is beautiful and very clean. The staff are lovely and are happy to help in any way. We arrived early in the morning and where upgraded to a ocean front suite. The staff were very accommodating with storing our luggage and letting us use the... More

I am with those who don't understand the rave reviews. Very nice room. Very comfortable bed. Badly stained carpet that we were told was about to be replaced. Heavy shower tap fell off in my hand and I was lucky it didn't fall on my foot. Fixed promptly. Should not have been in that condition. Misleading photos of pool. Much... More

My sister and I just spent a few days at The Modern and fell in love with this resort! The food, service and the staff were fantastic. We had one of the best meals ever at Morimotos. The spa was relaxing and invigorating!! I highly recommend! Toni

I love this hotel. Not only is the hotel itself beautiful as far as the uber cool design, but the people are magnificent!!! I spent a week there for my birthday and was pampered like a princess. Hanging out by the pool is fabulous and the waitstaff are friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this first class establishment!!!

My company was in town to put on an educational symposium at The Modern, and it was an overall wonderful experience. Catering Sales Manager, Ashley Chang and the rest of the team at The Modern (from AV to Accounting) did their very best to make sure we were taken care of. I would definitely recommend to others!

Right to one end of Waikiki, this contemporary hotel was exactly what we were looking for and only a short beautiful walk to the hustle bustle of central Waikiki. The service was great and staff friendly, no complaints whatsoever during my 4 night stay. I will definitely return to The Modern.

We hosted our wedding with 32 guests, at the Sunset Pool at The Modern Honolulu. All of our friends and family said it was the MOST incredible wedding they had ever attended! The venue was unique and spectacular, the food 5 star, the service top notch, and the Catering team quarterbacked the event from start to finish. Truly first class... More

My husband and I spent an eight night stay at the Modern which I chose based on the online reviews. Since noise was cited as an issue with some reviewers, I called prior to arrival to specifically request a quiet room as I am a light sleeper. We were in Honolulu for my husband to attend a professional meeting and... More

I've heard good things about this hotel, got to stay in an Ocean Front Suite, definitely Worth the price. The View is awesome, cant beat a view of the harbor and ala moana, not to mention the view of the Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon. I loved the Oshibori and lemonade at check in, exactly what you need with the hawaii... More
