“Hip & Cool Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012

If you're looking for a luxury hotel, that's different to the chain hotels, this is a cool, boutique, modern and luxurious hotel. Rooms are spacious, beds really comfortable, choice of two pools with great views for sunset, and the staff were really accommodating yet not totally suffocating.

The Modern is a paradise within paradise. Its refreshingly different to all other places in Waikiki, with its own uniques style. The staff are incredibly friendly & always going above & beyond to make our stay extra special. Looking forward to returning next year!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ocean side are quieter.

For a mid-40s no kids travelling couple this hotel was exactly what we wanted. No frills but a feeling of controlled luxury. Excellent staff who are communicative and open at all times. Functional areas that do what one needs and nothing pretentious. Atmosphere for partying and Hawaii style fun is there but it's not forced down your throat and you can have a quiet holiday without knowing it. The rooms are the right size and shape and for the price, excellent. Everything we needed was working.

This should be called the "Modern, Cool, Hip but Honest Hotel" because that's what I thought of it.

The Modern is an exemplary hotel that made my holiday experience perfect! The modern decor is aesthetically stunning and calming. Staff were attentive, rooms were incredibly clean, food was delicious, spa service was heavenly and the location was great - 2 min walk to beach and 10 minute walk either way to both main shopping areas/restaurants. I will be a repeat customer again and again, as will those I travelled with.

This is a really lovely place to rest and relax.

We stayed here at the end of our trip, relaxed by the pool and visited the shops nearby.

It is very smartly decorated and the staff are friendly and accessible.

This hotel was on the harbor front and just a short 3 minute walk to the beach. It is the end of a boardwalk that runs along the Waikiki beach line which allows one to go jogging or easy access to the beach front. The hotel staff were very friendly and helped with any requests or needs.
