We really enjoyed our stay at the Modern Honolulu. The hotel is in an excellent position close to the marina and Kahanamoku beach. It has all the facilities you would expect from a top hotel. We loved our room, which was spacious, well-equipped and well-furnished. We had two balconies, one with loungers the other with a table and chairs. The...

From start to finish, everyone at The Modern made us feel like royalty. We were there for six nights and had an Ocean Front Suite which was absolutely gorgeous. But back to The Modern's dedication to making one's stay special. It's simply all the folks there that provide an great experience. Also, if you can, dine at Morimoto. It's a...

Due to the pro bowl at turtle bay resort we were relocated at very short notice to the modern Honolulu for two nights! We stayed in a studio suite on the 10 th floor. The room was perfect, clean and comfortable . Reception staff were polite and helpful. We also ate at the pool bar too - fish tacos ....

First time to stay at this hotel and would recommend to any business traveller for its convenient location to of Hilton's Conference Centres, eateries and Ala Moana. Lives up to its name 'Modern' and very efficient Maids and friendly staff. Great value for money. If it wasn't for the front desk we wouldn't have known that our flight was 6hours...

We have stayed at the Modern 3 or 4 times now and come back because of the location. It is just outside the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and the hordes of people who come for Waikiki. We like the relative quiet of the Modern, its proximity to the mall (we always manage to forget something we need), and the...

The name is MODERN, and that says almost all. I found the best customer service here at The Modern. An affectionate spectacular splendor of love and Aloha shown by all the Ohana and staff. Excellence to the statue of Kamaaina above and beyond customer service. Local Luxe Island Swankiest spot for leisure of all ages. Entertainment food, fun etc. Two...

The hotel is ideally located within easy walking distance to the main parts of Honalulu. Lovely restaurant but there are other equally good restaurants over the road. The adults only pool is an ideal place to chill out between a busy day and sunset. Will stay ther again if we ever get back to Hawaii.
