We were first time travellers to Hawaii. From the moment we were greeted at reception until the moment we left 7 days later, we would be pushed to mention anything that was not amazing about this place. All staff extremely helpful and friendly. Our King Room had a really comfortable bed & room was well serviced every day, with a... More

Chill sexy and modern feel to this gem. A diamond in the rough in Honolulu. Grown up and not trying too hard, but hard enough to make you feel welcome. Staff is on point. Friendly and efficient. Rooms are small and expertly decorated in clean modern style. We upgraded to a suite with ocean view and two balconies-sweet. But you're... More

We were excited to be staying here and the Modern lived up to all our expectations. We arrived on a very early flight and were expecting to just drop our bags off and have to amuse ourselves for the hours before checkin. Instead without having to ask, the counter staff checked whether there was a room available, which there was.... More

Helped to host a suite with an adjoining room for business meetings. The staff was very helpful and the front desk validated all my guests parking. The in room dining was okay and some basic instructions on the meals were not followed, IE. No onions in a sandwich, Mildred spice on chicken wings were ignored. But the food good. Not... More

By far one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, rooms were clean and elegant, and the location was excellent. The lobby felt nice and welcoming and turns into a bar/lounge in the evening. The hotel offers great amenities including sunscreen, water, and fruits by the poolside. Would definitely stay here again... More

We were recommended to stay at the Modern through friends, I also checked out reviews and 99% of them said how great the service was. We didn't see that though we saw 100% great service and it lived up to everything we could have wanted. The staff were the best I have ever experienced anywhere in the world, especially Patience...

Not an ideal family resort/hotel but we still loved it. Beautifully designed and centrally located. We loved this place. Very nice pool area and great service. We rented a car and explored the area and surrounding beaches. Perfect place for couples.

The service was perfect - friendly, helpful and relaxed. The room was immaculate with a beautiful view. And the food and drinks were incredible - both at the pool bar and the sushi restuarant. I can't wait to stay at the Modern again!!!
