The Modern Honolulu was one of those hotels that I've always wanted to stay at since the property is so beautiful. I finally was able to stay there a couple of months ago and it was wonderful. The room was on the top floor facing the ocean. It had two rooms, one living room area and a separate bedroom. The...

I had a great stay at the Modern recently. Ashley Chang assisted me with all of my very last minute requests and made me feel like I was her only customer. Her customer service skills are exceptional as she remembered many details about my personal life and went above and beyond to recommend personal touches that my friends and I...

The modern is a wonderful location. My wife and I went for the end of hour honeymoon, and after having a wonderful experience in Kauai, were not so fond of the Modern. Our room was clean and nice to stay in. However, the staff constantly made us feel like a huge burden for asking questions. The concierge would grumble when...

Stayed here as a family in August 2016. Almost faultless, lovely location in the city but on the beach, clean modern rooms, fantastic roof top pools with comfy sun loungers and most importantly good access to the beach!! Upon check in my parents had a gift in their room which was a lovely touch as it was their silver anniversay....

The minute I walked into this hotel I loved the feel of it. The staff there was very nice. I loved the look of the hotel. It is very sleek and modern. It is in a great location and you can walk along the beach all the way to Waikiki Beach which is less than a mile and a very...

The Modern was a haven in a sea of big, crowded hotels along the Waikiki strip. Refreshingly understated so at first it seems not particularly luxurious but then the attention to detail and the high quality of all the appointments in the room, the food, the bars the charming staff all added up to a very high standard of accommodation....

Real mixed feelings about this place - there are some very good aspects and service was generally good but other elements mean I wouldn't recommend to friends staying in the city or return. Location is good with good running options nearby and away from the main throng of Waikiki which for us was a positive. Room was large and nicely...

My son and I stayed in the Modern for 6 nights from Christmas Day and thought it was a stylish and will appointed hotel. Check in was smooth and they allowed us early check in which was fantastic after a long flight. Food, pool and service were exceptional. The hotel is a 20 minute walk from the main strip but...

If only we had not had to wait more than a half hour after ordering breakfast this morning....and having it served cold, then i could have left it at ' wonderful.' Great room, great location and great service overall.

I had a great time at this hotel with my Daughter and Son for the Christmas Eve night. Spa time in the afternoon, time at the pool with Connect Four, then dinner. It was great, then The Study and to top off the evening at the The Addiction was a real night closer!! Thanks for the fond memories and the...
