We had a great stay at The Modern...loved the fresh, modern style and the cool ambience. The room was fantastic, the bed very comfy. Lovely views and loved the hotel's modern facilities. The pool and bar area is really pleasant and the location superb.

This is the hotel to stay in if you want to chill but still be close to all the action. The staff is professional and friendly. Rooms are spa-like, clean and crisp. The pool areas are lovely, with great bar service. We love eating at Morimoto's- it's the best restaurant on the island. Location is central to everything- shopping, beach,... More

This is probably the only boutique hotel in Oahu that gets it right. We live on the island and take frequent weekend staycations with our 1 year old. We usually avoid staying at boutique hotels with our toddler however we felt welcomed here. The rooms are chic, modern, comfortable, and beautiful. There was a yellow ukulele in our room which...

This hotel is for couples with no kids. This hotel is friendly for kids, however there is nothing for kids to do at the hotel. For couples it is the best. Very modern styling and the rooms are very comfortable. The hotel is located near the Ala moana mall and Hilton village. So there is lots of shopping within 10min... More

This is not on the beach but is walkable to the beach, has two great pools, and a modern aesthetic. Service by the poolside restaurant could have been much better, but all in all, for a $175 priceline stay, very good.

I just returned from a week at The Modern Honolulu. I can honestly say it was one of the nicest hotels, and nicest experiences I've had staying in a hotel, in my life (rivaled only by the W in Westwood, Los Angeles). Modern Honolulu is a very chic hotel located two hotels down from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The Modern... More

My wife and I selected The Modern based on reading dozens of feedbacks and we were not disappointed. The staff are super attentive without being obtrusive and the room was clean and lived up to the hotel's moniker. We stayed in room 628, a city view room, from June 1st to June 7th 2012. There was some street noise and,... More

After a great cruise from Sydney,Australia we spent 4 nights at the Modern hotel, Honolulu with a great view to the Laguna outside the Hilton komplex. We were told that the hotel recently changed owner and name, which normally is a bit suspicious, but we can assure that this hotel is a bargain at the Waikiki beach. Quiet area for... More
