Great hotel, great service, great rooms. Friendly staff. Will definitely stay there again. We had a great time at the pool that was decent size, hotel location made it easier for us to access the beach and also walking distance to alamoana shopping centre.

I booked this hotel after thorough research and would definitely stay here again! I was looking for a 5 star boutique property and this was it! From speaking with the professional reservations agent and the responsive concierge, to checking in and out of the hotel, the service and staff was top-notch. Moreover, we had a flight delay which caused us...

We love this Boutique Harborfront hotel! It's a quick Uber ride from Waikiki beach! This hotel pool has a beautiful view of the Harbor! The Study opens up to a lounge area where there is normally local music talent! They have a nightclub called ADDICTION! Enough said! We were visiting The Modern hotel this past November to dine one last...

Amazing property with an outstanding new restaurant Ravish. We were looking for a different dining experience. Something above the usual fine-dining. Ravish is a five star event for your palette that I highly recommend. - dad2fv

Whilst overall it was a lovely place to stay, good location, 15 mins walk to the vibrant Kalakaua Avenue, 10 mins walk to Ala Moana Shopping Centre, I did experience a few issues from the moment I checked...

My husband and decided to stay here after reading previous reviews here on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The pool area was a great place to relax. The hotel itself is a short walk from Waikiki Beach. We had the best sushi EVER at Maurimoto's restaurant-it's a MUST DO if you enjoy...

We just stayed here for ten nights. It was our first visit to Hawai'i. We arrived late and the room was very welcoming. We had a City view room with a balcony. It was spacious, clean and white. Our room was always quiet - we were on the 9th floor at the very end, so didn't have people walking past...

We are frequent visitors to The Modern (we even stayed when they first opened and was called The Edition). The hotel never fails to impress and makes our yearly Christmas trip from Australian an absolute pleasure. The rooms are modern (as the name suggests), comfortable and always extremely clean. Our last stay was on the 7th floor in a suite...
