I recently staying at The Modern Honolulu for 11 nights. On arrival the friend I was travelling with was extremely ill. The staff at The Modern went above and beyond to ensure that our room was ready 6 hours ahead of our check in time. They then continued to ask if she was ok throughout our stay. I wouldn't hesitate... More

My husband & I had a fantastic 10 night stay at the Modern Hotel. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff couldn't do enough for us including everyone at reception, around the pool and the food waitresses. The pool area wasn't too crowded and we were always able to get a chair around the pool. The staff constantly... More

The Modern Hotel in Honolulu is incredible. I could not fault this hotel! From the second we stepped out of the cab everything we could possibly want or need was catered to. The staff are the most accommodating and friendly people, the food was 5 star quality, the rooms were incredibly clean and everything was of the highest quality. Pool... More

We went to the Modern for a night out for my birthday of 9/5/13 and it was the best night out ever! The staff were very accomodating when a double booking had occured and went out of their way to fix it, they were awesome. When the owner realised that it was my birthday he came and shouted us all... More

Having just got back from our honeymoon where we were lucky enough to visit many places in US and Hawaii I can safely say this was the best hotel on all fronts vs any other hotel we've stayed in. The service from the hotel was absolutely amazing, the staff couldn't do enough for us and we thoroughly lovely people. The... More

Loved staying here. Service was great. Food and beverage was amazing. Attitude was not over the top like many funky boutique hotels. Poolside was bliss. Fun cool nights in the lobby bar. A bit of a trek to the Waikiki strip. But easy access to Ala Moana Shopping Centre. Look fwd to returning.

I recently stayed at The Modern Honolulu for several nights, and it was absolutely superb! The location of the hotel is perfect- a short walk from all of the activities on Waikiki beach and from the mall on Ala Moana but far enough away from all the crowds and busy-ness to still feel like a chic little tropical oasis.

Have stayed at many hotels in Honolulu. The Modern has them all beat for overall value and customer service. Spotless comfortable rooms, nice workout room, unbeatable poolside ambiance. Great location, friendly knowledgeable staff and Morimoto's just can't be beat. Fabulous! I'll be back.

The Modern hotel was in a word . . . perfect. The service was above and beyond expectations, some examples are: allowing us to use the lobby phone to call Australia, offering to book us reservations at various restaurants including finding one that was showing the AFL grand final, daily tidying of our rooms/making the beds, free delicious tea and...

Superb service from reception valet and concierge. Stylish and nice clean room. Like the minimalist style. Fantastic location. Walking distance to ala moana shopping mall. The biggest and best mall in Honolulu/Waikiki. Away from the busy Waikiki beach. No complains at all.
