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...

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

We stayed here for a night before meeting with my family the next day. Our flight got in late and we were exhausted. The front desk gal was the sweetest and upgraded our room to a suite since we were there for just one night. Having worked and traveled all day we weren't sure what to expect other than a...

Clean and comfortable rooms. I had a partial ocean view room overlooking the pool area, and it was lovely. Friendly staff. Loved that there was a ukulele in our room to play! Short walk to Ala Moana shopping centre, but took a bit longer to walk to the main Waikiki Beach area (the Pink Line was the best if going...

My first trip to Hawaii and staying at the Modern. It's quite a trendy place. The bar downstairs is packed on the weekend. The rooms are comfortable but I have to say the service was a bit slow. Had to call many times for room service and other services. The amenities were quite nice tho. Overall I would stay there...
