The Staff, Hotel decor, and services were all top rate. The menu at Morimoto's restaurant was excellent. The sunset pool service and environment was relaxing. The view from the pool for 4th of July was simply the most wonderful experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfectly situated, THE MODERN HONOLULU stands at the epicenter between the world renowned Hawaiian experience of Waikiki Beach, the blossoming Kaka’ako arts district, and Honolulu’s downtown cosmopolitan scene. 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. Two stylish pools overlook the ocean for daytime fun while a vibrant scene at The Study lobby bar is the spot for an evening rendezvous.

“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.”

“All rooms with double beds do not have a lanai. We had a nice ocean view but it would have been better if we could sit outside on a lanai. Only rooms with king size beds have ocean view with a lanai. ”
