This hotel is in the beginning of Waikiki! Its a very stylist hotel with very accommodating hotel staff. The Study is a nice place to chill for happy hour with live entertainment. If you're into the nightlife try Addiction and party hardy. Great location. Waikiki trolley stop to everywhere is just a short 5 min walk. The area has plenty... More

We stayed two nights at the Modern Hotel in a suite with ocean and marina views. The views were wonderful and the 1-bedroom suite was bright, mod and comfortably spacious for two. The hotel is around 15 minutes walk from shopping in either direction. The beach is close but not right on your doorstep. The hotel lives up to its... More

The Modern Honolulu was on the top of my list for hotels to stay in when I knew I was traveling to Honolulu. I liked the location, as it was close to Ala Moana (the shopping mall), downtown and Waikiki beach. When I pulled up to Valet, there was an abundance of staff to be of service, which was great....

We stayed at the Modern for a short stay in Honolulu. The hotel itself has a clean, modern aesthetic and the rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The one thing to note is the wall that connects the bathroom to the bedroom has moving wooden slats which reduces privacy slightly so make sure you are comfortable with your travelling partner!...

Nice little hotel, but not recommended for families. Great for singles and young couples. The area is the more quiet part of Waikiki but too far from the beach. I recommend staying closer to Waikiki central and visiting the outer beaches. Rooms are on the smaller end and to counter this every second room has no balcony. Overall staff were... More

My husband and I are from NZ and recently got married at the Modern Honolulu. Hawaii is our favourite place in the whole world and we knew it was the place where we wanted to get married. Initially we thought planning a destination wedding would be difficult, however we were looked after by Cassie Simpson who made the process incredibly... More

We stayed at the Modern three nights on a vacation that was essentially a "delayed honeymoon". In hindsight we should have done a little more research. First the positives - The staff and service were awesome. Every interaction we had with any of them was a positive experience. The decor is really nice and the place was clean. The negatives...

I stayed here for 4 nights over the 4th of July weekend. It's a great hotel with all the amenities. I would have given this hotel 5 stars, but the breakfast buffet didn't have much selection and the beds were hard. I am used to big comfortable beds with fluffy pillows and comforters. Also, there are cheaper hotels in town,... More

We were very excited to stay at this property as we prefer boutique hotels over the mega chains, especially when traveling in urban areas. Some things at the Modern Honolulu were very good, but unfortunately, it missed out on a great experience. The key to a boutique hotel is to find one of two niches: either be priced below the...
