We chose the Modern Hotel based on it's location and price. You can easily walk to Waikiki beach, many restaurants and a great shopping mall. The food offered poolside was delicious and fairly priced. Service was attentive and the staff is friendly and helpful. Our only annoyance was the music loop that plays endlessly. It can get very tiring when...

When I got to the hotel every single person there seemed so privileged to help you from baggage, parking the car all the way up to the time I checked out 3 days later. They definately provided what felt like genuine hospitality that has become so rare in our businesses today. Once I settled in my room, I had a...

We stayed here for the first week of our honeymoon. The location was ideal for us, as it was quiet - 3 minute walk to the beach/lagoon and 20 minute walk to the middle of the strip. Also 10 minute walk the other way is the largest mall, for more shopping if required. The motel is clean with great staff...

The staff were so friendly and their service was top-notch. If you arrive this hotel before your check in time, you can use their spa facility and take a shower and wait for your room to be ready. This hotel location was excellent- close to the mall and other super markets (10-15mins walk) You can ask them to borrow their...

I have been tired with group tourists and mega hotels in Waikiki but this time my business required me to stay around that area. Since I was invited to their restaurant Morimoto, I gave a try to stay this hotel. It turned out to be an excellent stay. No group tourists and no kids were running around. Swimming pool is...

This hotel reminded me of Barcelona for some reason with its slightly old school balcony's and boutique style rooms. The adults only "sunset" pool is an absolute highlight, even for one lazy afternoon and the location itself is pretty decent for shops, the beach and restaurants.

Stayed here for a bit of luxury at the end of a Hawaii holiday. The Modern is definitely that (modern), but with that unfortunately goes a certain 'coldness' from a few staff (too cool for school...). Staff who were friendly though were great. On check-in to our room there were two definite issues that were bad. Management dealt with these...

It's become quite the annual event for myself, an indulgent birthday bash with all of my favorite people. Year after year (this would be 5 now), the Modern has rolled out the red carpet for my guests and me. Pool beds, chaises, towel service, drink specials, all for 50+ people who truly know how to enjoy themselves. The staff was...

The Modern looks over the marina and there is easy access to get onto the beach but it is world's away from the giant hotels filled with Japanese package tourists that line the Waikiki strip. Instead the hotel aims for -- and largely succeeds at -- a boutique hotel atmosphere complete with minimalist decor, a hidden bar off the lobby...

The location is quite off the Waikiki beach, restaurants and shopping central. It is very expensive for the type of the hotel. I'd rather stay at Sheraton or Trump Tower. The hotel is new and modern and staffs are very nice.
