I read a few bad reviews today before posting mine. I have to say I dont see what these complaints are. This hotel is gorgeous. It can be a great romantic trip with your significant other or a relaxing family trip. To the familys that think this isnt a good family hotel; during my stay i saw children playing games... More

Room 1112 for four nights. I suppose I shouldn't compare with the best hotel in Sydney overlooking the whole Harbour on the 17 floor........but we're paying more for this room at The Modern! I expected a lot more! Room next door had a party and I had to go down to reception once and call security at midnight. Paper thin... More

Had high expectations based on price and marketing. Check in experience unfortunately ruined vacation that had been planned months in advance. Room was paid in advance for a week yet desk clerk charged my bank card 500.00. (Incidentals) I said fine and headed up to room. The bank not knowing I was in hawaii declined the charge. Instead of calling... More

This was such a beautiful hotel it was perfect for a bachelorette party week! The staff was very friendly and the service most importantly, was absolutely great! The hotel has beautiful architecture giving a contemporary feel. It was absolutely stunning (the pictures speak for themselves)! Food and drinks were awesome! Both pools are gorgeous and very relaxing. Sunset pool/adult pool... More

We were here for 9 days in early Dec, 2014. The service is excellent. The room is very clean. The hotel restaurant Morimoto is Japanese fusion type - excellent sashimi, very fresh. It happened when we were there, the famous Iron Chef was there. The location is great and is close to Ala Moana - less than 15 min. of... More

I grew up in Hawaii, so I'm familiar with most hotels on Waikiki. The Modern Honolulu is a refreshing addition to the strip. My favorite was the pool. Love the modern design and quality of food + drinks. The rooms are super clean (all white decor) and enjoyed Lather toiletries (my fave!). The Lobby Bar is very cool, and they... More

This is a beautiful hotel with very helpful and competent staff. It was in a great location, close to the Ala Moana shopping centre, a beach and the Hilton Lagoon. It is not right near Waikiki Beach, but a short bus trip away. The hotel has a very nice pool, good restaurants and a great Spa. There are plenty of... More

My hubby and I stayed here during our first trip to Hawaii--we liked that it was away from the more crowded areas of Waikiki Beach. We were met with complimentary lemonade and warm towels upon check-in, which was a nice touch. We didn't get a chance to ask what fragrance they pumped into their lobby, but it was very tropical...

My husband and I loved The Modern for our short stay in Oahu. Service was incredible with fabulous grounds and two beautiful pools. Great restaurant on site (we ate sushi every night) and the hidden bar was fun. The rooms were beautifully designed, comfortable and relaxing. We had a city view room, mountains in the background with a peek at... More
