Lovely boutique hotel. The rooms are quirky, the beds comfortable and the shower the best we have had on our USA road trip. The beach is over the road flanked by a lovely little lagoon and adjacent to the harbour. The poolside is nice and the pool attendants very attentive, clearing unused towels regularly enabling beds to be freed and... More

A short stroll from Waikiki beach but located close to the Ala Moana shopping mall, which my wife and teenage daughter thoroughly enjoyed. Good wifi speed which enabled all of us to stay in touch with family and sport back home. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms. The view from our room's balcony looking out into the water... More

We came here first before heading to Kauai. We spent 4 nights here. The first day we reserved a day bed which comes with a $100 minimum. This was easy as we had breakfast and lunch plus a couple of drinks. Well worth it, a great day relaxing from a long flight the previous day. The second day was a... More

We recently stayed at The Modern Hotel (July 6-9) with friends and must compliment them on one of the best customer service experiences I have had...ever! The great service started weeks before we arrived via phone calls and emails interacting with the concierge team who helped plan and book our tours and car rentals. The team was full of ideas...

1.5 km from Waikiki beach but located close to the ala Moana shopping mall. Good sized gym and wifi speed. Friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms. Bar and attached nightclub become very popular in the evenings for socialising. Would recommend if your someone who spends a lot of time in a hotel when on holiday. Only downside I'd say is... More

This was our second stay at the Modern Hotel. We returned with our teenagers after a previous couples only stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hotel again. It is more of a boutique hotel than some of the bigger places in the Waikiki strip - but it has a bit of character and atmosphere about it that I... More

The hotel is in the heart of Waikiki, a lot to be seen within walking distance. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is free and our room was really spacious. Bathroom also has a lot of space. The main plus is that the room has a lot of electric outlets for charging phones and laptops. The one thing that... More

We stayed here July 2016. The hotel itself is good - modern decor, good pools, the marina location not quite on the main drag but easy walking distance - but the concierge team was a stand out. Nothing was too much trouble - car hire, day trips, restaurant reservations, information of where to go, maps - even reserving tickets for... More

The hotel is lovely and clean, the pool areas are great - love the idea of having an adults only pool, although it's mostly in the shade so we ended up having to go to the main pool anyway. The poolside staff are nice, but the food is average and too heavy when sitting by the pool in the heat.... More

I recently reviewed the modern as the room we had was not the room we thought we had booked. I don't know whose mistake it was but I have to say in all my travels Imhave never had a complaint dealt with so promptly and effectively as I had with the Modern. My husband and I came back from a... More
