The Modern is easily the best hotel I've ever stayed in. We spent 10 nights in an ocean front suite which had a stunning view of the harbour and beach (there was even a fireworks display on three nights of our stay). The room, pools and restaurants are all tastefully decorated and very relaxing to spend time in. I highly...

Brilliant hotel, clean, modern. Staff very helpful. We only stayed there for 2 nights at the end of the holiday, but it was worth it! Great food served by the pool. We rented one of the VIP beds for a day - totally worth it!

Located along the Waikiki strip, we found the Modern to be convenient and close to everything. The rooms are pleasantly contemporary and minimalist in style. The whole staff was friendly and helpful, especially Veronica (concierge), Erin (poolside cafe), and Elena (spa). The food was good, and we booked all our events and excursions through the concierge desk. That worked very...

Is a modern and very calm and chill hotel. The staff is very helpful and usually nice. the unique that we will love to see was the christmas decorations, that this hotel didn't have any at the time. We also do the thanksgiving dinner there where they prepare special dishes for my mother that have a strong dietary restrictions.

I have hosted several business meetings at the Sunrise Pool Bar located at the Modern and the service was fantastic. You will like Bryant the bartender / mixologist and the staff. They are cordial, but personable too. I could not appreciate them more for the value-add as a business customer.

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.
