“Small Details Made A Difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I stayed in a City Scape King Bed Room on the 6th floor in June 2014. Nikki at the front desk was very friendly and took the time to go over every detail of the property. Room appeared to be in very good condition with a new large screen TV, a large shower as well as a comfortable bed. Small Hawaiian themed decorations made the whole room feel very pleasant. Room size was adequate and overall had a comfortable night’s stay.

Room Tip: For a quieter stay, consider requesting a room on a high floor as far back from Ala Moana Blvd. as p...

We stayed at The Modern on a stopover and loved it. The rooms were very clean and beds comfortable (my too main musts at a hotel!). The room was a good size and we had a great view of the marina. We ate at their Morimoto restaurant and thought that was wonderful too.

For a newer property on the island, they knocked it out of the park! Service was fantastic from the moment we stepped inside the lobby to the dining experience at Morimotos'. The staff was considerate and worked to exceed expectations at all times.
If you are interested in this property for a group meeting experience, the meeting space will surprise you in a good way. Pre-function space is large and the 3 section ballroom was larger than expected. PSAV onsite can assist with all AV and lighting needs. The staff aimed to please and they managed the details perfectly. I would send a group to this hotel and also pad a little R&R on the tail end of my meeting.

We stayed at the modern for 3 nights in June. Having read a lot of reviews on TA we decided on the modern for its high level of service, location and room quality.

Service- At check in we were a little disappointed as we didn't receive the welcome drink, like others did. Seems like a small complaint but left us wondering why everyone wasn't given the same service. Also had $200 credit included in our package but this was not on our booking. When queried it was rectified immediately. Other services were good. Housekeeping and room service were excellent.

Location- the location suited us perfectly. We didn't want to be in the main strip of Waikiki along with all the other tourists. So were very happy with the ala moana location. We could walk into Waikiki easily along the beach and also to ala moana shopping centre very easily.

Room quality- we booked an ocean front suite and this room totally lived up to expectations. We were on the 6th floor. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Room was very spacious and the lanai's both had great views.

Other thing of note is it is noisy. We could hear street noise often throughout the night, even with all windows and doors closed.

Overall a good experience.

Stayed for two nights on a last minute getaway trip. I booked through Hotwire the day before arrival for $220/nt. Arrived around 1:30 Friday and checked out Sunday. Check-in staff was very friendly and welcoming, but unable to assign my room early. I wandered around town for a couple of hours, then came back to get into my room. Balcony off room had marina view - very lovely. Hotel presents itself as hip/party place. However my floor seemed very quiet - no issues with loud neighbors coming or going. Quite a bit of street noise though. Location was very convenient to beach and restaurants. Shopping district just a few blocks away. Would stay again, if I found a reduced rate or special.

My sisters and I spent 6 nights here and could not have been more impressed. Our suite on the 17th floor overlooked the marina and was very comfortable. Breakfast was included in the room rate, which was great. The concierge did a great job in organising our tours and recommending great places for lunch and dinner. It was good to be away from the bustle and all the tourists in Waikiki but we were very close to the Ala Moana shopping mall! Service at the hotel, particularly from Luis, Ruth and David was first class. Thank you for a great stay!

Stayed at The Modern for six nights with my two sisters - absolutely fantastic! The location is not on the main Waikiki strip so away from the noise and tourist bustle. It was, however, a short walk to the hotels on the strip which were accessible via a walkway. Our suite was roomy, airy and very comfortable. Great vibe as soon as you entered the lobby but the stand out feature was the staff - from breakfast to bar, to restaurant and concierge, all were fabulous. There is a real culture of guests first at this hotel. Loved it!
