I have been planning our annual company conferences for the past 7 years and in that time have organized 9 events. The Modern was one of the best locations I have had the pleasure of choosing to take our staff to. Our event included staff from the USA and Australia; with everyone saying how great they thought the venue was....

The Modern Honolulu was the perfect getaway for me and my boyfriend. The food was exquisite, the rooms were classy, and the service was exceptional. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Oahu.

I grew up in Hawaii and every year when we come to visit the family, my hubby and I always take at least a few days on our own while the kiddos hang out with the grans. Normally we go up to Turtle Bay. However we have recently gotten into the craft cocktail scene and upon searching for places to...

Great Hotel very friendly staff, clean and modern rooms. Excellent location to Waikiki and other close beaches and Ala Moana shopping complex . Great pools with a choice of 2 and excellent breakfast at the sunrise pool. House keeping staff were also very friendly.

A belated review from a fabulous weeks stay in July 2015. Could not fault the hotel, staff or services. Spent days lounging by the pool, wonderful poolside service. Rooms were well serviced and maintained. Concierge incredibly helpful. Within walking distance to shopping mall and to restaurants. Would definitely return.

For transparency, I'm not a fan of this area of Oahu, but stopped here on way to Kauai. If you're going to Waikiki this is a very good hotel, especially if your interests are being close but not completely in the heart of Waikiki. The location is great for the shopping enthusiast, close to high end shops in two directions....

Nice clean rooms, very helpful staff. This hotel is within walking distance of Waikiki and close to Duke Kahanamoku Beach. The hotel is a good value compared to most Waikiki hotels. It is near Ala Moana Mall for shoppers. Many restaurant options are nearby in all price ranges. One drawback is that only valet parking is available. This is probably...

Coming from Paris to Honolulu for our honeymoon, we were expecting high standards regarding this special occasion and The Modern has nicely met our expectations ! The location is ideal ; being located nearby beaches & related accommodations and Ala Moana Shopping Center as well. The Modern is having two pools with their own accommodations ; there is spare space...

The Modern Honolulu is in serious need of a little colour and could do with a massive dose of personality, its just trying to hard to be edgy and stylish and it doesn't really pull it off. The staff are friendly enough, the room was mediocre, the location is decent and the fwb membership deals offers quite good value... To...
