Giving 5 stars for amazing, personalized, and caring service to the whole team! My (now) husband and I chose The Modern Honolulu for all of our wedding day preparations and have zero regrets. We held our rehearsal dinner at the Grove, which is a hidden restaurant gem in itself. Chef Keith Pajinag and his team are fabulous!! Food was AMAZING... More

The quality is quite high in terms of look/design/feel of the rooms and meeting rooms. But also -- perhaps even better -- is the terrific quality of staff. From the valets to front desk staff to the banquet team and events staff. All were great. They're welcoming and wanting to help at all times, and super pleasant. More so than... More

The room was spacious, clean and bright. Some unique decor touches unlike other hotels in the area. So many things are walking distance including restaurants, shopping malls and lovely beach walks too. There is no traffic noise or noise from neighbouring hotel properties.

We only stayed two nights. Chose this hotel for views and location. We were in Honolulu to tour the Pearl Harbor memorial. If you can, coordinate your trip for a Friday night stay. There are fireworks on the beach at sunset. For a great view from your balcony, ask for a room on the Lagoon side (odd numbers). We were... More

Hotel itself is fantastic - modern set ups not like a some of other run-down 80s hotels. Location - Very handy to Ala Moan, only 8-10 mins walk. If you prefer the Waikiki Beach strip then the Modern might be too far for you. We make good use of the Pink trolley line when we visit Waikiki. Check in/Check out... More

A nice hotel but not great. The food is of a good standard but expensive. Around the pool area the waiters are always pushing the drinks and if you ask them for an ice water they pull a face. Drinks are also very expensive would try other hotels in this area
