I spent 10 night with a friend in April 2017. The hotel was a nice surprise. The decoration was very modern...compared to Honolulu standards. Service was good, concierge was efficient. The fact that the hotel can lend you a GPS if you rent a car (from any leasing company) is a really nice thing. The pool area was nice and...

The room was well appointed in modern decor. The staff was wonderful. The food and beverages included healthy spa like options which we appreciate. We were celebrating our anniversary and they had bubbly cocktails in our room upon arrival which was a nice touch.

We stayed in Modern Honolulu for a week while attending a conference. The drive from the Honolulu airport took about half an hour during rush hour and we were quickly checked in when arrived at the hotel. The room we had faced the harbour and we had no problems sleeping. The decoration was minimalistic and fresh and kept very clean...

Absolutely terrific! The service (especially at the spa) the food and the ambience were top notch! The rooms with balconies were a beautiful setting and a place to linger. The location was perfect for shopping and a lovely walk to Waikiki.

Stayed recently for 5 nights and would definitely recommend. The room was clean and comfortable, staff friendly, pool area lovely and the food excellent. The location is good. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that one of the days the pool was closed from 3pm for a private function which wasn't great as the other pool...

Myself and my wife (local couple) recently had our wedding reception at The Modern and are very happy with our decision. We had been to a few other events before deciding on The Modern as our location. All events we've been to were outstanding. The whole kitchen/service staff was exceptional and offered 5 star service and food. Ashley, reception organizer,...

The grounds are beautiful. The staff is impeccable. The food and drinks are divine, whether poolside or a catered event. I visited the modern several times over the course of a week and each time it was spectacular. It was a wedding celebration and each facet did not disappoint. The rooms are beautiful and if you get one with the...

We have stayed three times and we all salivate about returning. The room are luxe, the staff are awesome and the pool area, way too cool for us. We book a day bed for the day, pretending to be way cooler than we are… The hotel is well located, short walking distance to the beach. Returning!

We hosted our wedding at the Modern. The Sunset Suite was the perfect locations for beautiful views for our guests to enjoy. The suite accommodations were beyond our expectations. Our suite was modern, spacious, and so comfortable. And finally, the FOOD! Our wedding guests are still raving about the quality of the food... I highly recommend the Modern for your...

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.

“We were on the 16th floor and the internet access was not as good here as in other parts of the hotel. If you need to work or require the internet as a priority ask for a lower floor.”
