Nothing to shout about at this hotel. Just a good, average hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we had a nice view across the Marina. The staff were, on the whole, very friendly, but service could be slow at times. Being some 10 or more minutes walk away from the main Waikiki beach there was no beach view...

Recently we had a corporate meeting at The Modern Hotel, they did phenomenal job with all aspects of the meeting from meeting space, catering, A/V, lodging. They anticipated our needs and were very accommodating with any last minute changes from the room layout to the schedule. The catering was by far the best as many of the guests could not...

My overall experience of the Modern was that it met most of my needs as a business traveler. The service was impeccable. Food so so. It's very close to shopping and restaurants. A little overpriced but it's not surprising given that this is in Waikiki. Unfortunately our room was next to the elevator so it was not easy to have...

Stayed at The Modern as part of a work trip to Honolulu two weeks ago. I am a frequent visitor to Honolulu and typically stay at either the Halekulani or the Hyatt. I toured the Modern when it was The Edition but had never stayed. It's tucked away just past the main scene of Waikiki, set apart from the strip....

Went for honeymoon, overall just okay stay. We had the Partial Ocean View Room. Firstly, room rates appear to be competitive for a decently new and modern hotel. Hotel accommodated our room request for the pool facing side, and high on the 16th floor, which was very kind. Complimentary wifi worked well, reception mostly good throughout hotel. Room was clean...

The modern was the perfect location for some rest and relaxation on the last few days of our honeymoon. We received a small bottle of champagne in our room on arrival along with other goodies from the friends with benefits program (definitely join this free program before making bookings/arrival for good deals). Our room was clean and bright. We opted...

This is a lovely hotel. Away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, but close enough to the action. Our room over looked the pools and the lagoon. It’s a short walk to the sea, the fireworks on Friday evening are fabulous. Our room was large modern and clean, the beds were super comfortable, well laid out bathroom ( no...

I've been to Hawaii three times and I love it every time but this was my favourite stay so far! Honolulu reminds me of Australia's Gold Coast, amazing beaches and shopping but slightly aged/outdated hotels. The Modern is MODERN, fresh, contemporary and cool. The rooms are lovely and tidy, but with clever use of space and the view of the...

The Modern was excellent. The staff was very friendly. The hotel had beach access a short walk from the back. Next door a highly recommended breakfast place Cinnamon's is accessible through a shared walkway. There is also a great coffee place Aroma next to Cinnamon's. The spa is fantastic. The room was impeccably clean and the housekeeping did a great...

Great venue for training, meetings or other company functions. Excellent food. Sara Lester, Conference Service Manager, makes sure all goes according to plan. Easy access to Ala Moana mall, as well as to Waikiki Beach. Great staff. A lot of aloha.
