We found this hotel to be very comfortable with all we needed for our stay, the early morning coffee is very welcome. My only criticism is that when the upper pool area is closed for a function there is no way near enough space for guests to relax by the one small pool and that happened when we were staying...

On a previous stay in Waikiki we went to Morimoto for dinner and looked enviously at the Modern Hotel in comparison to the place we were staying - on our return we fixed our error and stayed for the week at the Modern. The room was light and airy, excellent bathroom and toiletries selection and we enjoyed a good few... More

The Modern Honolulu was everything we expected and more! It was our first pitstop in HI as an overnight before inter island travel and we loved it so much that we booked it for the last few days of our trip as well. The price was a little higher than we were originally planning on spending, but so worth it.... More

I've collectively stayed at 20 plus hotels just in the past two years, all over which I make sure are 4 star rated or above. I visited The Modern back in January 2015 and I can honestly say that it has been placed as my number one in terms of everything! After a long, tiring 17 hour flight from England,... More

We stayed at the Modern Honolulu for 2 weeks, for our honeymoon. Phenomenal hotel. Excellent food, staff and service. You could not fault the place. They were so accommodating in every aspect. There are 2 pools catering for both families and 'adults only'. We spent most of our time at the 'family' pool, but it was very relaxing. The family... More

First time in Hawaii, Honolulu, Waikiki beach, what more can you say? Lots, this boutique hotel is in a great location overlooking the Marina and lagoon. Good rooms, good view from part or full ocean view rooms, get a balcony and watch the helicopters and surfers. Good service, friendly and helpful reception and great concierge.

The Modern Honolulu lives up to the hype. I stayed here for four days before heading on to one of the smaller islands and it was an enjoyable experience. From the views, the staff, the 2 pools (an adults only pool option is awesome) and the quick fireworks show on Friday evenings that can be viewed from your balcony (depending... More

I booked our stay as a surprise honeymoon destination after our wedding in Las Vegas. From the point of checking in to our sad departure, the hotel exceeded my expectations. Hotel is faultless in every way. Every member of staff throughout were exceptional. Hopefully one day we will return, thanks for a wonderful stay.

Stayed for one night after scaping the mayhem of hilton hawaiian village. Wanted to check in early as we could not tolerate the hilton resort at all. They had our room ready at 9 am! What I found was that you don't hear the word "no" at all in this hotel. They do everything that is reasonable to make your... More
