This is the second time that I have stayed at the Modern Honolulu. I stayed there while at a conference three years ago, and again for a conference at the end of February/early March. From the minute that I got out of the cab and smelled the hotel, I was feeling happy! Last time we were in a partial ocean...

The Modern Honolulu was amazing! The location and service couldn't have been better! Steps from everything with all the modern touches. Highly recommend this hotel, felt the location and service was better than the fancy hotels on the beach strip.

I stayed few days with my family at the Modern last august. That was the end of our trip in Hawaii. The city view room was at the 3rd floor with a poor view on a building with a parking inside. Despite we were Expedia gold members in a Vip + hotel, we were not been given a better room....

Our brief stay at the Modern hotel just recently, was a great hospitable experience. Greeted on arrival, we were welcomed into their very clean lined customised reception. The rooms are very spacious and the futon inspired beds are comfortable. From the in-room complimentary coffees to the luxurious chaise, our room offered affordable luxury. The pool areas are fantastic. With the...

Hotel and room was lovely with beautiful decor. Staff were friendly and very attentive. They also served me the best Coconut Mojito I have ever tasted. Very clean and comfortable bedding/pillows. Only 15 minute walk to the main hustle and bustle of the main street. Loved the adults only pool...very relaxing.

Had the benefit of staying at The Modern last week for 4 nights in Honolulu. I've stayed in several hotels in the area over the past couple of years and don't think I'll stay anywhere else in the future. Rooms are solid, food at the pool and the new restaurant Ravish were great. Really liked the location being able to...

In our travel from the Big island to Vancouver, we needed to overnight in Honolulu. Searching the Internet I found an interesting looking hotel called the Modern Honolulu. We were tired when we arrived and I think staff sensed it. They were helpful before being asked; took care of luggage; helped us check in; and told us a bit about...

The Modern had been recommended to us by Melbourne colleagues and our travel firm. We could not be more pleased with our experience at this excellent hotel. The rooms are large, comfortable and very well serviced by staff. The location is superb - within easy walking distance to high quality shopping centres and the beach. There is an ABC outlet...

It was the fourth and last part of our Hawaiian Honeymoon. We had carefully chosen the hotel and weren't dissapointed! The hotel is on an ideal location,Ala Moana, with beautiful views to the marina and easy access to the points of interest in Oahu. Walking distance from Waikiki, but on a quieter location, as we wanted. The hotel is beautiful...

We are the hub of contemporary culture and creativity in Honolulu. Our boutique luxury is as refined as it is relaxed. An empowered team delivers THE MODERN HONOLULU experience -- alluring, personalized and innovative – surrounded by an award winning design concept that creates an urban chic beach aesthetic. LATHER spa features treatments developed around the purest products in the world -- natural, organic, and sustainable. Local and house-made culinary menus are offered for poolside and in-room dining, complemented by RAVISH Restaurant which blends our Island’s bounty with Asian flavors and South American tastes creating a true Pacific Rim experience.
