Conveniently located in Waikiki with Spectacular views and pitch perfect Customer Service We had a lovely morning enjoyed The Hummus it  was insane ! On other visits the Roast Turkey was out of this world. The Hotel boasts some of the finest rooms anywhere in Hawaii. It is also home to The Grove ( the Best poolside locale Ive ever...

We are frequent visitors to The Modern (we even stayed when they first opened and was called The Edition). The hotel never fails to impress and makes our yearly Christmas trip from Australian an absolute pleasure. The rooms are modern (as the name suggests), comfortable and always extremely clean. Our last stay was on the 7th floor in a suite...

We chose this hotel for it's proximity to Ala Moana (10 minute walk). We only had two nights in Waikiki having been there before so it was principally a quick shopping trip prior to heading to Maui. As other reviewers have noted the hotel is on the edge of the Waikiki precinct however there are buses both trolley and normal...

We went on our honeymoon a year ago to the Modern Honolulu. Since we booked through a travel agency we were given a 2 double bed room. I called MH 3 times to try to get it upgraded to a King, and while they weren't able to promise me anything they were very attentive to my request. When we arrived,...

Just finished my fourth stay at The Modern and couldn't be more satisfied. Every stay at this hotel has been a relaxing and unique experience. It's still the best stay for couples looking for a more quiet and secluded stay with great amenities. I've spent plenty of time and money at several other hotels in Honolulu, but only at The...

The pros: The adults only pool was really nice! I enjoyed floating on the rafts and beautiful views of the harbor and sunset. Great pool drinks. Loved the coconut mojitos. Joined their friends with benefits program for a 100 dollar room credit and two free glasses of prosecco! Score! Left the Honolulu cookies in our room for us as a...

The Modern Honolulu was everything it was made out to be. Amazing staff. Beautiful rooms and facilities and the best coconut cocktail on the island. The location is great, perfectly placed between Ala Moana shopping centre and Waikiki restaurants and nightlife. We walked everywhere as the location allowed this. Concierge took care of all bookings for us including rental car...

First time in Hawaii and stayed 9 nights over Xmas and NYE in a 1 Bedroom Ocean Front Suite for which we were spoilt by the views. The room itself was spacious & decor tasteful. Staff were amazing, especially those at The Grove Restaurant and Bar. Service was always prompt and never too much trouble. Good mix of customers -...

When I checked into my room it was very clear that it had not been cleaned properly as there were multiple and obvious problems. This came after long delays at the check-in counter (not ideal after a 10 hour flight) and my bag going "missing" with the bellhop for upwards of an hour. Finally the manager came to my room...

Great location, food, drinks and rooms. So close to everything but tucked away. A modern day take on luxury in Hawaii. Staff are outstanding. Grab a day bed ($150 tab) you have all day to spend in on cocktails and food!
