We stayed at the Modern Feb. 20-27, 2012. Overall the experience was excellent. The service is good, the staff all young, dressed well and very attractive. The rooms clean roomy, very very modern and nice. Ours was a partial ocean view. The location is about a 20 min walk to downtown Waikiki strip. And it was a walk we enjoyed everyday. I would personally recommend the Modern to anyone 40 and under. That's just my opinion, the hotel has a funky and young vibe. The "Private Beach" on the 2nd floor was great, small wading pool surrounded by pool lounge chairs and sand avec pool side bar - was fantastic. Also, in the early evening the downstairs library area transforms into a lounge. Very nice spot to have a few pre-evening drinks to start the night.
Overall, excellent hotel. Very fresh, new and "Modern" with a funky, youthful vibe. We booked this week trip through Expedia and traveled from Vancouver. The price was excellent and the hotel certainly exceeded our expectations. This is a boutique 4 star hotel, if you are looking for the best hotel with the best location on the beach, this is not it. But if you are looking for an excellent hotel, with a fresh vibe, and don't mind walking to the beach, and saving a ton of cash in the process, then The Modern is the place to stay!
