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. 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. It’s no wonder Thrillist magazine called us “The best boutique hotel in Hawaii.”

We love this hotel!! It is modern, clean, quiet, and right on the edge of the Waikiki strip. It is the perfect place to relax in the beauty of Oahu and still enjoy the nightlife of Waikiki. Modern Honolulu has two gorgeous pools, a night club, a quiet bar with live music, and

This resort is without any reservations one of my all time favorites. I was military which took me to quite a number of places around the world, which has afforded me the opportunity to have a number of lodging to compare. My criteria are based on several factors, cleanliness,

This is an upscale hotel. Conveniently located to downtown shopping, eateries, and the beach. Staff friendly. Well maintained. Had a porch area with a nice view. Restaurant, bar, and two pools, one for adults only.

The Modern is walking distance to Ala Moana Shopping Mall and the rest of Waikiki. It is next to a parking station on one side and Hertz rent a Car and Alamo rent a Car on the other.. The hotel does have valet parking but I found the parking station more convenient. Staff are

It's close enough, all of Waikiki is nice, but if anything, I would go to the end of Waikiki called Kaimana's. It's closest to the Waikiki natatorium. It's nicer there and not as crowded.

Sorry, we were on the 15th floor and still heard it (I don’t know how to edit a comment). Oh, plus, there were some teenagers staying in the room across the hall from us and we could hear them every time they came in and out of their room. That didn’t bother us really, just a commentary on how thin the walls/ doors are.

Where we were which is nearer the beach end was quiet no disco noise but open the deck doors and you have a lot of noise road traffic more than disco. That’s everywhere

We do not have a "Honeymoon Suite" but do have THE MODERN HONOLULU’s Marina Ocean Front Suites with maximum space and privacy (think: separate living room; private bedroom). But the terrace is the climax – accentuating the view of Waikiki Beach, the Ala Wai yacht harbor and the Pacific. Our Marina Ocean Front Suites are designed for distinction – offering separate living and bedroom spaces and two terraces. Intimately, our Studio Suites feature a sitting area inside and a terrace outside. Hope to see you soon.

Another suggestion just came to mind - Try Ko Olina area of Honolulu that has much better beaches than Waikiki. Very nice Marriot hotel and Disney Aulani resort if you are renting a car, it will take about 45 min from airport

"Do not stay here"
"Ocean view are best but hotel is under renovation so not sure which rooms are availble."
"You really need to pay for a baech view room or partial with a balcony."
"Ask for a higher floor b/c the nightclub gets loud"
"Book as far away from the nightclub as possible ! actually don't even bother booking this hole"
