We had a really great stay at the Modern. Big and well equipped room, really nice pool area and all the service you need - food, drinks, shop, gym etc. FANTASTIC concierge service who gave great advice regarding our Pearl Harbour visit. Overall really attentive and friendly service! The location is awesome right by Waikiki beach. The food at the... More

We had a great family holiday. The beds were comfortable and nice shower. The pool was family friendly and had great cocktails. The staff were friendly. It's very convenient to go to anywhere in Waikiki.

This is a gorgeous hotel and in a fabulous location. It is stylish without being over the top. The reception area is spacious and behind the bookcase is a bar which is used in the evening for drinks and live music. The lifts are a bit slow but if you're not in a rush what does it matter! This is... More

Great hotel option for Honolulu trip. Is very modern and boutique. Caters for a slightly younger audience 30-45. A nice stroll to the heart of Waikiki beach. Two lovely pool decks, however the Sunset pool held private parties on Friday and Saturday which I feel is poor for hotel customers, not being able to use. Seems to happen a bit.... More

My son and I stayed here because when we checked into our hotel in Honolulu we were disappointed. We asked if we could get out of our booking and they said yes, so we headed to The Modern Honolulu. We were so pleased. This is a lovely, clean,adorable botique hotel.I loved the outdoor bars. We had breakfast here as well... More

I had a wonderful stay in the hotel. The room was well appointed, clean and upscale amenities. The pool, bar and adult only area made was a great outdoor retreat. I enjoyed being away from the middle of the beachfront. It was a quick walk to the middle of the action. The hotel is not oceanfront which some may not... More

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...
