The Modern takes hospitality to a whole new level. At a time when most brands are cutting corners, The Modern has double downed on making their customers feel welcome and excited to be there. Opportunity: paint-landscape patio.

This is my second trip back to Hawaii. The first time we stayed the Marriot. We decided to choose the Modern due to the location of this hotel. It's far from the busy walking street full of tourist. The staff at check in and valet are very fast, which is great. We booked a king room and was given a...

Giving 5 stars for amazing, personalized, and caring service to the whole team! My (now) husband and I chose The Modern Honolulu for all of our wedding day preparations and have zero regrets. We held our rehearsal dinner at the Grove, which is a hidden restaurant gem in itself. Chef Keith Pajinag and his team are fabulous!! Food was AMAZING...

The quality is quite high in terms of look/design/feel of the rooms and meeting rooms. But also -- perhaps even better -- is the terrific quality of staff. From the valets to front desk staff to the banquet team and events staff. All were great. They're welcoming and wanting to help at all times, and super pleasant. More so than...

The room was spacious, clean and bright. Some unique decor touches unlike other hotels in the area. So many things are walking distance including restaurants, shopping malls and lovely beach walks too. There is no traffic noise or noise from neighbouring hotel properties.

We only stayed two nights. Chose this hotel for views and location. We were in Honolulu to tour the Pearl Harbor memorial. If you can, coordinate your trip for a Friday night stay. There are fireworks on the beach at sunset. For a great view from your balcony, ask for a room on the Lagoon side (odd numbers). We were...
