We stayed at this hotel for six nights. It is very clean and has everything you need. There is a very shallow pool at the top which is good for lying on a lilo and floating around on. This pool was closed for functions on two afternoons though. There is also a bigger pool with a bar where we spent... More

I stayed at "The Modern" with family and friends for 7 nights in September and coming from a Hospitality/Hotel Background myself, I am always very picky about where I stay. This property was close to perfection.. Positives - The Staff: Staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating in majority of the hotel areas. A special thank you to Kolby & Michelle... More

The only place with flavor and character on Waikiki beach. The modern is gorgeous and high end yet has incredible friendly and helpful service. The restaurants on site are top notch and people come from all over to dine at them. The pool and amenities are stellar and offer a much more laid back and organic experience than the big... More

My partner and myself are staying at this hotel for our honeymoon having got married last week in Maui. The service has been great and our room is lovely but we never received anything back from the hotel when letting them know that we were coming to the hotel for our honeymoon. We did say at the front desk when... More

I stay in so many hotels for work and an used to the quality of service I get at W or Fairmont properties so I was happy that the Modern really lived up to this bar and beyond. The hotel helped us with a nice luau option, location is great, we had lunch at the pool, all nice. Clearly not... More

My friends and I stayed here for my bachelorette party. I appreciated the welcome drinks during check-in, and our room was as chic as I expected. Well-designed, spacious, and nice bath products. We ate at Morimoto Waikiki, which was wonderful, as well. We also used both pools. It would have been nice if the hotel could have done something special... More

After spending 3 days on the north shore we were looking for more of an urban feel. The Modern ticks all of my boxes, very chic, with a central location and ambiance on Waikiki. Not too large of a property that makes you feel lost navigating the hotel grounds. Very cool pool area for adults separate from the general pool.... More

We built in a stop in Honolulu to break up our flight from New York back to Australia and The Modern was suggested by our travel agent. We’d never visited Hawai’i before and it proved to be a very good recommendation. As the name suggests, the hotel is indeed modern and the rooms are lovely and well-appointed and of a... More

We booked to stay for 5 nights for first half of our honeymoon & have to say unfortunately we're really disappointed! Positives - Staff are super friendly & smiley, communal areas like pool & bar are very well presented & feel quite chic, location is great...close enough walk to Waikiki but far enough to be a bit more relaxing. Negatives... More

We have just left from our stay at the modern for three nights. I would really recommend it it was a brilliant stay and the hotel also left prosecco in our room as it was our honeymoon which was lovely. I would advise paying extra to at least get the partial sea view and I would recommend asking to be... More
