Lovely hotel in an amazing location”
I had a great stay at The Modern Honolulu. This is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at! I had a king room with a city view and could see over the harbour. The room was gigantic and the balcony was nice, although I didn't use it too much. The poolside restaurant on level 2 was fabulous – great quality food (much better than many of the tourist trap restaurants nearby) and excellent service. All of the staff on the front desk and helping with luggage were very friendly and helpful.The pools are fairly small but no matter when so close to the beach. The only downsides were that there was no kettle in the room –there was a coffee machine but I think a lot of guests would like to make their own tea rather than ordering it as room service! And it would have been helpful to have been able to check in before 3pm. I would definitely stay here again!
Chic hotel with great service”
A beautiful modern resort which is unlike most other hotels/resorts in Honolulu. Service was exceptional, the staff was always helpful and friendly. Loved that there were 2 pool options, one which is for adults only. They also passed around complimentary sorbet at the pool and there's free coffee every morning. The rooms were very nice and clean. Overall our stay there was a wonderful experience- no complaints. It's a great hotel on the upscale side which is good for relaxing but it's also got a nightclub in the hotel for those who are down to party.
We loved the Modern! Would definitely reccomend”
We had such a wonderful time hanging out at the Modern Honolulu for 2 days. We just chilled by the bar and enjoyed the afternoons and the pool. We were served by Jaycer who wethought was wonderful. He went above & beyond for us by grabbing me a nail polish from the spa once I broke the one I just purchased. The spa was also amazing, Amber was SO good and I have never felt so relaxed. Drinks were on point, though if I am honest I think the lunch menu could use a little finessing. The room service dinner & the breakfast selections were quite nice, that said. Overall we had a wonderful time at The Modern and we will look forward to coming back soon! Thanks :)
Great Hotel !”
We stayed at the Modern for our last 3 days of our Hawaii trip. As a young couple (27 & 21) we found the Modern to be perfect for our age group. They have a great pool with great tasting cocktails, a rotating bookcase with a hidden bar behind it, and a nightclub that guests get free entry into!!! Hotel is very clean and they give you free cookies from the Honolulu Cookie Company each day. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome
Best hotel in Waikiki - service and ambiance”
I recently stayed at The Modern for my honeymoon and loved it! The hotel was close enough to the main Waikiki beach (approx. 20 minute stroll) and to Ala Moana shopping centre (approx. 10 minute walk). The staff were excellent, accommodating and helpful with our car rental and restaurant suggestions. The Study bar area was amazing with a great live band and a good mix of locals and tourists. The breakfast was great with a small but adequate menu. We dined at Morimoto, the Japanese Iron Chef restaurant located at the hotel. The food was outstanding, drinks were great and the service was second to none. The rooms itself were large and modern with everything you need. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay out of the main area and have an experience at the hotel.
This was our second visit back to The Modern Honolulu. We stayed here during our trip to Hawaii a few years back. This time we only got to spend one night here but the experience was just as enjoyable as our first visit. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location convenient. We love the modern vibe and it is one of our favorite hotels in Honolulu.
I always stay in a beachfront hotel right on Waikiki beach. They are all traditional Hawaiian hotels with access to both Kalakaua Avenue restaurants and shopping and Waikiki beach. On this trip we chose the Modern Hotel for its fantastic pool facilities. Much more like a Beach Club feel with cabanas and modern style. Very close to the Ala Moana shopping centre and still on Waikiki beach without crowds. A lovely hotel
Great location for this sleek hotel”
We came here to celebrate our honeymoon. Loved the location and facilities. The hotel itself is beautiful very modern and clean design. The staff at check in were a bit average to deal with, can be cold and unhelpful but never rude. The pool staff though are lovely. The food from The Grove was delicious too and reasonably priced for Waikiki. Highly recommend this hotel.
Contemporary hotel in Waikiki”
The Modern is quite different to most hotels in Waikiki. The design is chic and contemporary, which we like. The rooms are generously sized with a decent balcony. We enjoyed a nice view (a little restricted, over the marina). Road noise can be a little loud at times but the sliding door provides good insulation from it when closed. The bed and pillows are brilliant, ensuring a good night’s sleep. The staff are all pleasant and helpful We enjoyed the pool and service, is there a better way to relax than lying on a bed in the sun, dipping into the pool to cool down from time to time, and being waited on. I don’t think so. It’s within an easy walking distance to Ala Moana shopping centre and probably 15 min walk to the centre of Waikiki, which is close enough but far enough away from the busy hustle and bustle. We will be back
Service was outstanding and rooms were comfortable and absolutely gorgeous with great personality. I've stayed in many hotels and this is definitely a memorable one in Honolulu. Only walking distance to Ala Maona and great restaurants around the area. I would definitely go back!
Hotel with style! Great service& location”
my husband and i spend 2 nights of our honeymoon in the modern. we absolutely loved it,best hotel we stayed in hawaii. we upgraded to ocean views which was worth it. we both surf and we could check the surf from the room,there are few breaks in front of the hotel. the hotel is a bit away from waikiki main area but we liked that as bit less touristy. the swimming pool area is fantastic,reminds me on europe somehow. the design is great and so different to the typical hotels. the sunset at the pool area is awesome. good food and happy hour at the pool bar too! there is a fancy restaurant as well as a club but it's open from thursday to sunday so we miss that. i would recommend it to everyone,especially to young couples looking for something stylish and different.and affordable.
Great location, chic setting”
Spent Christmas Eve here, and was impressed by the contemporary theme. The staff was very helpful, and I enjoyed my dinner. The location is close to wonderful sights, but far enough away to be quieter than the main strip. I wish I had more time there, and I would stay there again if I return to Honolulu.
Chic hotel outside the hustle of Waikiki”
We had a wonderful stay at the Modern Honolulu. This hotel is about a 15 min walk to the busy Waikiki but that suited us fine to be out of the busier area. This hotel is in a lot better condition than other hotels closer to town, modern and clean.
The only modern trendy hotel in Waikiki!”
We had an amazing 3 days at Modern Honolulu. I particularly liked the sunset adult pool where we just laid on the cabana bed all day. Location and service were amazing too. Truly beautiful hotel!
This is a nice hotel relatively close to Honolulu Convention Center. Very friendly staff. The hotel is located near the beach through there some minutes to go to the beach. There is no breakfast buffet, only a la carte, kind of expensive but tastes very good. There is only valet parking for 35 $ a day.
Relaxing "first class" getaway”
Our stay was just wonderful the Modern Hotel is in a great location away from the waikiki strip yet still close to all the attractions. Housekeeping did a great job, fresh bottled water was supplied daily and an ice bucket was provided every evening so we could have pre dinner drinks! We arrived very early morning on the first day of our stay and our room was ready for check in by 10am - this was a treat as we had just come off a long flight ! We paid a high premium rate due to peak season so the only improvement I would suggest would be dining discounts within the hotel or to include perhaps a complementary breakfast in the room rate.
lovely hotel with great service and friendly staff”
this was the first time we stayed at the modern hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. swimming pool area was very comfortable, the snacks on menu very tasty and the service excellent. the rooms were also very nice although my only complaint was they didn't have a coffee pot in room. reception staff very friendly and helpful and the location is great. walking distance to ala moana shopping center and waikiki as well as great eating venues close by. would definitely recommend it to friends.
It was very nice experience at this hotel.”
Before we left Honolulu, we wanted to find good hotel for us, Then we found good hotel for us on Agoda so nice price. Thank you for your help.
Really modern hotel”
Very modern hotel with all modern equipment. Lots of sockets in the room to charge all your electronic devices. Walking distance to shopping mall and the Waikiki beach. Friendly staff. Good restaurant by the pool, very nice breakfast. Minus: there is a night club on the ground floor. The visitors to the club may be a little bit noisy till 3 o’clock a.m.
our honeymoon hotel very modern boutique style”
I picked here for our honeymoon hotel in hawaii. the hotel is located right in front of Waikiki and very close to the major shopping area. hotel is very modern and secure. room is of white decor and very comfy. on the first floor, there is the bookroom/ bar and it's quite nice at night. there is a club adjacent to the hotel I recommend this hotel for the couple who enjoy both city and the beach :)
