I travel frequently to Honolulu for work and each time I return to the Modern I'm treated with exceptional care. The staff is beyond attentive and they so it in a way that is casual and friendly. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. While sometimes the hotel is full so the pool area is a bit crowded, it is... More

My 3 day stay at the Modern Hotel was wonderful! Everyone from the time we set foot on the driveway until we left for the airport gave exceptional service. They were all friendly and could not do enough for us. I would like to give a special shout out to "Patience" the guest relations specialist. Patience not only is beautiful... More

The service is what had us thinkin "damn this was the best service we have ever gotten from a hotel"...we then... More

We loved staying at the modern, we travelled with friends and both had a toddler. The location although a walk from town was perfect for us in getting out of the thick of the large resorts. We loved the asthetics of the hotel, enjoyed the room and found the city view was a great choice. we stayed at the Royal... More

Had a wonderful experience at this hotel. You are in the city but you are on the beach or at the pool with music piped underwater. Really a joyful experience. Excellent food. The stylish style of the rooms and pool area was a big draw for us. I was with my 5 years old and we stayed in the general... More

We spent our honeymoon at the Modern Honolulu. We stayed for 9 nights and loved every minute of it. When we checked in, we had a congratulations card and a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. Every time we went to leave the hotel, all staff members wished us a wonderful day/night and asked if they could... More

An old property that has been refurbished I sense. Lovely room with a great view. Excellent bed. Service from the staff was impeccable. It was actually nice to be out and away of the craziness that was Waikiki, and the extra walking was welcome! Lovely pool areas. Not really for children. Great food and drinks (and a great selection too).... More

The location is great. The look simple contemporary. The personalized service second to none in the city. The rooms are sparkling clean. The accommodations go that extra mile to differentiate the experience from other places, and they definitely succeed at exceeding expectations. We read all the glowing reviews before booking here, and we were still pleasantly surprised! How often does... More

A 3-night stopover on Honolulu on our way home to Sydney from Edmonton, Canada was the reason for our stay. A friend gave us the recommendation and she was so right - great location (for beach and shopping!), exceptional service from the time we arrived (at almost midnight) to when we departed (again late at night), beautifully appointed room (love...

I just could not imagine staying here with children. The hotel does have a nicely appointed pool but that would be the only thing for kids in this hotel. Correct me if i'm wrong but I would stay at the bigger resorts if you have little tikes in tow. With that being said, it is an effective and trendy hotel... More
