The Modern Honolulu gives you a feeling that you are the at the coolest swankiest hotel on the block without taking away the personal touches of a simple warm smile and great customer service from any and all staff for the valet to front desk to the bartenders to servers. Makes me wonder how is EVERYONE this nice? The pool is small, but very comfortable. It does not get crowded. The rooms have a modern minimalistic feel and clean. My only complaint about the room is that it can be a bit loud if you are in a room near the elevator and just over the nighhtclub. Guest services would come in in the evenings to turnout the bed and set us up with complimentary water, which is a nice touch. The valet guys are super friendly, too. It is on the pricier side, but it is in Waikiki with convenient access to beach, food and shopping.
