Have been to Honolulu a few times and it has always been my top chosen vacation destination! This time we went to Honolulu for Valentine's Day and stayed at the Modern; the experience was totally beyond expectation! The room was very clean and the services were impeccable! Especially the Leisure Sales Manager Jennifer Kim went above and beyond to ensure...

Is a modern and very calm and chill hotel. The staff is very helpful and usually nice. the unique that we will love to see was the christmas decorations, that this hotel didn't have any at the time. We also do the thanksgiving dinner there where they prepare special dishes for my mother that have a strong dietary restrictions.

I have hosted several business meetings at the Sunrise Pool Bar located at the Modern and the service was fantastic. You will like Bryant the bartender / mixologist and the staff. They are cordial, but personable too. I could not appreciate them more for the value-add as a business customer.

Service at the Adult pool was not good but service down at the other pool/lower level was great. Hotel is in a great location, we went next door to Cinnamon's for breakfast one morning and...

This was my first trip to Hawaii and our travel agent recommended The Modern Hotel. It was lovely, well situated near the marina and the lagoon. The beach was fantastic and not too crowded like Waikiki beach. The facilities at the modern where great, the pools and deck area just the right size and the servers where always there when...

When it came time for my fiancé and I to settle on a venue for our wedding reception, deciding on the MODERN Honolulu was an easy choice. The catering and event staff there were extremely professional and went beyond our expectations to not only explain, but also, to show us everything that would come with having our reception at their...

Highly recommend this hotel. Friendly staff great adults pool and bar. World class master chef restaurant and close enough to walk to the night action but removed enough for a peaceful nights sleep. The hotel has complimentary coffee and a lovely library and "cool" nightclub

We stayed here for a few days before heading off Maui. The rooms are nice without being too fancy. Located at the western end of Waikiki, 10 minutes walk to Alo Moana shopping centre. Note this is not the busy busy end of Waikiki but most of the tour group pick up at the hotel or 50m around the corner....
