Enjoyed our 3 nights here in May 2017 after 7 nights on the big island. Was concerned when given a room near the lifts but was very quiet. Nice, modern room but not huge in size. Friendly staff and we enjoyed having cocktails near the pool - suggest you give the coconut mojito a try! Great location, we walked to...

Hotel is amazing and modern! Bar and bartenders at the Ravish restaurant are awesome. Really helpful when it comes to drink selections! There is no doubt this hotel invests in their employees. Every one we came across was so nice and hospitable. We asked one of our bartenders what type of training they do and they explained they have a...

The Modern Honolulu is an amazing experience hands down. This is the hottest hotel in Honolulu and away from the craziness of Waikiki. Loved it beyond belief. Most of all Ravish is unforgettable. First time dining here and it was amazing.

This is a great renovation done in slick white and grey tones. Rooms are clean and roomy, bright and nicely appointed. Service is excellent. Staffed with young and energetic people, they aim to please. Close to beach and other hotels so what they don't have right in the Modern, you can get to easily get to next door. Couple of...

We stayed here for 5 nights in May 2017. We were not really impressed. Rooms looked refurbished, had foul smell when we first entered the room. Head board of the bed had spots. Our room had partial ocean view but was noisy in the night (noise from traffic). Room service was okayish. Plus points - Breakfast by pool side was...

The Modern Honolulu is an amazing hotel! The location is perfectly situated on a calm side of Waikiki Beach near the harbor. The views are spectacular and the facilities are very clean and fresh. Even more important than the lovely physical aspects of this outstanding hotel, it's the staff that makes it stand above all others I've visited. Every staff...

Loved our stay here. Hotel is small and lively, and super clean. Hotel is staffed to the gills with helpful, friendly, gorgeous young people. The front desk and concierge helped us plan a couple terrific day trips, including helping us rent a car (a really nice Jeep, actually). We liked our room, too. Rented one of the pool beds and...

I recently stayed with a group of friends to celebrate a girl's/bachelorette weekend. I live in Hawaii and sometimes get a little turned off by the hustle and bustle and crowds of Waikiki, but have to say, the Modern was exceptionally enjoyable and we all had a super fun weekend. I'd highly recommend for a fun night out or staycation!...

Great weekend at the modern with friends for a bridal shower/ bachelorette party. Love the large rooms, with open living space to hang out and relax. Great View too! Always enjoy hanging at the Study in the evenings, with excellent service and music. Enjoy the live performers too. When your local and choose to spend your Stay Cations at the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfectly situated, THE MODERN HONOLULU stands at the epicenter between the world renowned Hawaiian experience of Waikiki Beach, the blossoming Kaka’ako arts district, and Honolulu’s downtown cosmopolitan scene. We are the hub of contemporary culture and creativity in Honolulu. Our boutique luxury is as refined as it is relaxed. An empowered team delivers THE MODERN HONOLULU experience -- alluring, personalized and innovative – surrounded by an award winning design concept that creates an urban chic beach aesthetic. LATHER spa features treatments developed around the purest products in the world -- natural, organic, and sustainable. Local and house-made culinary menus are offered for poolside and in-room dining, complemented by RAVISH Restaurant which blends our Island’s bounty with Asian flavors and South American tastes creating a true Pacific Rim experience. Two stylish pools overlook the ocean for daytime fun while a vibrant scene at The Study lobby bar is the spot for an evening rendezvous. It’s no wonder Thrillist magazine called us “The best boutique hotel in Hawaii.” ... more   less
