My fiance and I stayed at The Modern in December. The Hotel is really Modern as the name suggests and the staff were incredibly helpful. Awesome pool facilities and great cocktail selection were a highlight. The front desk staff were really great and knowledgeable on helping us to get out to the North Shore for Pipe Masters also. Would definitely... More

Okay, Let me start by saying I have never written a review on trip advisor before but frequent yelp and decided to share my experience here after such a wonderful stay. My family and I had two rooms at the Modern Honolulu from December 27th, 2015- December 30th, 2015. We had one room with a king bed and one with... More

.Very good hotel with nice pool area. All in all a good area at a decent price if you don’t want to be in the thick of Waikiki. We had a basic room as we planned to be out and about a lot. Still had views of water and city. Outside downtown Honolulu so not too much noise. Walked to... More

Centrally located, not a large hotel. Nothing has been too much trouble for any of the staff, they all make you feel welcome. Facilities and rooms are of a good size, very good bathrooms, and excellent pool and meals areas. They have two pools, please of room to move. Meals are brilliant, breakfast is well done, perhaps it focuses on... More

My wife and I stayed in the modern for our first vacation to Hawaii. We had a perfect time in Honolulu. Our stay at the Modern was great: the room, the bed, the service at the desk/restaurants/spa. I ran the honolulu marathon and the modern was the perfect hotel for the race (nearby the start and lomi-lomi massage afterwards).

We definitely made the right decision to stay here. This place is perfectly located as it is only a short walk from central Waikiki and about a 10 minute walk to Ala Moana Shopping Centre. It is big enough to have everything you could want, but small enough to have personalised attention. It's a lovely feeling when you walk past... More

Having stayed at a variety of hotels and apartments in this glorious part of the world over the past thirty years, we decided to take advantage of the Friends with Benefits program for a brief stay after Christmas.

My partner and I were very excited to stay at The Modern during our most recent trip to Hawaii. There was a lot of hype around The Modern, a number of our friends had stayed and had a raved about the service and accommodation, not to mention the fabulous reviews it had received on Trip Advisor. Needless to say, we... More

This place is very hip as other reviewers have stated. Came with my mom and had an awesome week without the kids. Best part of the hotel is the concierge team. So helpful with making reservations and making suggestions with activities. Definitely eat at Morimoto's. Watch the fireworks from your room for the best view. If you can get a... More
