"awesome hotel, upscale and trendy"
Room was super nice, hotel facilities were awesome and the pool and bar were great. Would definitely stay there again. Have the omelette at the outdoor restaurant by the pool its ridiculously good....Genuine Expedia guest review
WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS HOTEL. STAFF WENT ABOVE & BEYOND IN ANYTHING WE WANTED. WE'VE BEEN IN A LOT OF HOTELS IN OUR TRAVELS & THIS WAS ONE OF THE BETTER ONES WE'VE BEEN TO. ALL THE EXTRAS THAT ARE INCLUDED IN YOUR STAY IS FANTASTIC. LOVE LOVE LOVED THIS PLACE.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location for a great price"
The Modern is not right on the beach, it's next to the Harbor, however, it is at most 5 minutes to walk to the beach. If you don't mind walking my husband and I did not need a car for the entire long weekend. If you're planning to stay just in the beach area you will be just fine at this location. The pools were both fantastic. The room was spacious […] and comfortable. The staff exceptional. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Can't wait to go back!"
I loved everything about the modern. It's such a gorgeous hotel and the staff is outstanding. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The room was really nice and it's worth it to pay for the ocean view. The hotel food is great. Love the bar staff at both pools. Morimoto's the perfect restaurant for this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not customer friendly and disappointed"
We booked this hotel to celebrate our seven year anniversary, my birthday, and it was our first time that our family went to Hawaii. We thought that we would receive some sort of complementary services. I called ahead and spoke to a representative at the front desk. She informed me that they would send a list of services via e-mail that we can propose […] to the manager to be complementary. I never received that list and why a proposal??? When we arrived we spoke to the hotel staff at the front desk. They did not have any notations about receiving any complementary services. She spoke with her manager and they decided to comp us (hang onto your hats) - a whopping breakfast entrée and a drink. WOW! How awesome! (sarcastic). When we overheard how other couples who were on their honeymoon received complementary drinks and spa packages, we were very disappointed. We felt constantly that since we have a child that other couples and the hotel staff were always looking down upon us. They only have two small pools (an adult only pool and a general pool). They never informed us that there were going to be loud obnoxious parties going on at the general pool at nighttime either. They had a bikini fashion show going on all night long on a Thursday night with loud music. They had a ReMax event booked that completely blocked off sections of the pool area with large bodyguards and bouncers posted around the hotel. Book elsewhere if you have a family with kid(s).

"very modernized hotel"
It is very modernized hotel and I was very satisfied with that. Free coffee at the lobby was excellent. If I have a chance to visit Hawaii, I will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed at The Modern for four nights and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Stayed here for our anniversary and right when we entered our room, we were greeted with champagne. A very nice gesture from the hotel. Rooms were very clean and well maintained, the staff was very friendly, and the hotel pool area had a nice relaxing feel to it. Best hotel […] in Waikiki hand down. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Hawaiian Vacation!"
The Modern Honolulu is an absolutely wonderful hotel! The entire staff was friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and engaged! From the bellmen to the front desk, the concierge team to the cleaning staff, The Modern Honolulu really makes one feel like royalty. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the very moment we arrived until our all to soon goodbye. Being […] that this was our first time in Hawaii, we were a little overwhelmed at the amount of reviews for so many different varieties of hotel choices. In retrospect, we feel as though we made a perfect decision. The great location, the clean, modern design and "like new" condition of the property really scored big points with us. A special thank you to Cortney, at the Sunrise Pool, who took the time to write down some of the local spots for us to explore on one of our day trips around the island. It turned out to be one of our most favorite days and we probably would have missed out if not for her excellent suggestions. Also, Lois, at the concierge desk, gave us some great advice for a drop off laundry and got us the perfect table at Duke's Restaurant. The whole team at the Modern Honolulu do an outstanding job. Kudos to all of them! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice clean hotel..partial ocean AND city view!!"
I love this hotel.. the staff was real nice and the room was awesome. . Just wish I could stay longer. .Genuine Expedia guest review
Everyone. Very nice and polite. Spa services pricey. VIP addiction lounge definitely not worth $500. I've stayed in better 3 star hotels half the coatGenuine Expedia guest review
"Modern decor + super awesome & friendly staff"
I love everything about Modern Honolulu hotel. The staff was awesome! Their service is A++. We stayed 5 days and 4 nights here and enjoyed the experience. Stephanie, Concierge staff was so helpful throughout our stay. Thanks Modern Honolulu!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Modern as named"
Nice location at the beginning of Waikiki but not directly on the beach. I liked the design, service, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Edition > The Modern"
Whatever it was/is called, and whatever court battles won or lost and owner bankruptcy involved, the hotel holds up because of Ian Schrager's design and Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s restaurant. Hip, trendy & chic; to be surrounded by all of that and nestled into a most convenient Honolulu spot is quite a treat. The plentiful staff are helpful and courteous […] for the most part but, just like some of the physical attributes of the hotel, wear and tear is beginning to show ever so slightly at the edges. I received a call a couple of days before arriving to see if there were any special requests regarding the room or to get car service from the airport, at that time I was not told the pool, indeed the whole outside area, would be closed for a special event. Nothing makes you feel at home like being told upon arrival that most of the place wouldn't be available for use, but they gave me a modicum refund for the inconvenience after that point was made clear by me. There is no whirlpool which would have been great after sunset in the pool area and the upstairs pool/beach area is not utilized for common use only for rented occasions. The rooms are extremely nice and sleek in their dressings. I did wish that the room doors didn't sound like a vault upon closing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stephany was the best concierge ever and made our stay the best. It is a beautiful, well located, understated decor, nice views and well satisfied with the whole experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"VERY CLOSE TO BEACH"
OMG WHERE DO I START, IT WAS AMAZING. FROM THE BUS BOYS TO THE FRONT DESK UP TILL ROOM SERVICE AND HOUSEKEEPING. EVERYONE WAS GREAT. MY HUSBAND AND I FELT LIKE ROYALTY. I DO RECOMMEND STAYING AT THIS HOTEL.. SO CLEAN, PEACEFUL, FRIENDLY, AND VIEW OF BEACH WOWWW. OVERALL IT WAS GREAT.. PLEASE BELIEVE YOU WONT BE DISAPPOIINTED. FYI ORDERING ROOM SERVICE […] IS VERY VERY EXPENSIVE BUT IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO GO TO HAWAII THEN THAT WONT MATTER. (GRILL CHEESE SANDWICH 12 BUX), I KID U NOT. BUT YOU CAN GO TO STORES IN WALKING DISTANCE BUT THERE PRICES ARE UP THERE TO JUST NOT AS HIGH. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel was great, it was very close to the beach."
Great stay, great bar, great pool and restaurant and staff. Amazing hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very beautiful hotel"
I am glad that we stayed here. Hotel is lovely. We were mostly disappointed in technical issues with phone, Internet and even cable. I liked that hotel was not overrun by kids nor did or seem crowded at pool. Pool and outdoor area are very sleek but service was spotty. You will walk a lot to get to other locations. Nice walks but can be long in heat. […] The beauty of this hotel can only be topped by Surfider but I think their pool seems crammed and much pricier. I would go again but not likely to return to Waikiki for a long time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location in Waikiki"
Love the location and the scale of this hotel! It's just on the edge of Waikiki, so you're close to everything but don't have to go into the belly of the beast unless you want to. It's a short walk to amazing shopping, the beach and larger resorts. There are 17 floors - enough to justify having a good restaurant & a nice spa on-property but you don't […] get lost heading back to your room. The pool area is great, with comfy chaises and a spacious, wi-fi enabled lanai with banquettes and tables where you can escape the sun for a while. I booked a partial-ocean view room, and asked to be moved because there really was no ocean view at all. The staff was accommodating and moved me to another room (with only a sliver of ocean view, but at least they tried). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Modern Honolulu has two awesome pools!"
It is near one nice shopping mall with Japanese food court! It is slighly far from Waikiki beach. Everything else is awesome!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent service from the front desk, to the pool staff, to the concierge desk. The exterior is deceiving, as inside the hotel is far more sophisticated than the exterior would suggest. Clean and modern with true Hawaii service. Nice job.Genuine Expedia guest review
"ok hotel; seen better 4 stars"
The staff in the hotel is good and helpful. However, what lets the hotel down is the property and the location. The property was very small and somewhat bare and depressing. The lobby was very dark, the hallways were dark and bare and rooms were extremely small. The location of the hotel is also somewhat far from the main Waikiki beach area and there […] were not too many good eating places within walking distance. I was glad that we moved out and stayed in another hotel for the rest of our vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with an even better staff!"
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Modern. I'm not sure I could find a single thing to complain about. What surprised us most was the food...incredible! Whether it was tacos at the pool, late night room service or breakfast we were never disappointed. Literally every meal was executed perfectly, and we never got around to eating at the famed […] Morimoto. It's abundantly clear that much thought was put into the execution of the menu. In addition to the fantastic food, we were blown away by the helpfulness and sincerity of the staff. Generally at places like this you run into staff members with chips on their shoulders, but not here (or if they do they are great at hiding it)! Everyone from the bell men to housekeeping were so attentive and friendly. You can always count on a friendly greeting in the elevator or someone to offer you assistance with your bags.

"Great Hotel to stay in close to everything"
Very nice room with a view of the beach. The room was of a modern look with beautiful white furniture. It was within close distance to lots of restaurants, and within walking distance of the mall.Genuine Expedia guest review

Wonderful experience, would stay there again when I find myself in Hawaii.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Truly a luxury hotel experience."
The staff was awesome and very accommodating. great location, awesome experience overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Modern was very upscale, the service was excellent, pool area was chic, valet parking and room service were very expensive. One complaint was with housekeeping, the kids were in the room when they came by to clean and later that afternoon we talked with a housekeeper and requested that our room be cleaned, but it hadn't been touched when we came […] back. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel is not on the beach, but it is very close to Waikiki Beach. We loved the look and feel of the hotel. Can't say enough about how helpful and welcoming the staff was.Genuine Expedia guest review
"exactly as named, modern"
Definitely a great experience in a great hotel. I got a great deal on the room and I can easily compare my stay at this hotel to another in a higher price range- that's how good this place was for me.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room not very spacious. Fitness center good. Spa wonderful. Location greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location, comfortable rooms well decorated,"
Otstanding. All staff is great, atentiive and polite. The hotel is located close to the harbour, next to a private beach very nice and less crouded than waikiki. Two pools, a spa, and very good rstaurant. You can go walking to waikiki beach, Every night there is turn down service, and they organize your excursions or activities at the concierge desk.

"New Waikiki Hotel Home"
I have been to Waikiki several times, if I am staying in a hotel in Waikiki, it will be the Modern. It is close enough to everything but not so close that you have to deal with the crowds. The Modern has everything I need; the room was wonderful, the food was very good but it was the staff that made me really love it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hip, modern vibe, NO Aloha print!"
I love all Aloha all the time, but sometimes, you just want cool, sleek, modern digs. The Modern Honolulu has that. Obviously, this hotel appeals to a certain clientele, and it's not for everyone. If you're like me and DO want cool, sleek, and modern (not to mention the most incredible customer service I've ever encountered), stay at The Modern. I'll […] be back, for sure.

"coolest hotel in honolulu"
Absolutely loved this hotel! Won't stay anywhere else in honolulu! Checked on for 4 nights after staying at a different hotel for work. This hoy is chic, modern, and stylish. The pool is great and open 24 hours with a great bar (try a frozen coconut Mojito). It is about a 7-10 minute walk to waikiki beach, but there are other closer beach options. The […] bar, The Study, located off the lobby Is cool for drinks or small bites. We has an incredibly extravagant dinner at Morimoto and the checkin staff went our of their way to make the dinner reservation special. The Ross were spacious and clean and the linens were fantastic. I'm still patting myself on the back for choosing this spot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Worth every penny!"
From the moment you check in, they greet you with lemonade and a cold face towel to prepare you for the awesome treatment your about to receive. Staff very friendly and helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
As someone who is from Honolulu and was returning for a short trip, it was a pleasure to stay at the Modern. I found the staff immensely helpful and very kind. The amenities were great--especially the pools and the pool bars. Valet only parking was a little pricey, but that was the only real downfall of the stay. The room had a nice view of the harbor, […] but I found the neighbors to be rather inconsiderate and noisy on their balcony. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Everything was perfect except for sharp edges of the bed frame. I kept hitting my sheen against it. I would appreciate it very much If you can round those edges. See you again soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for couples"
amazing hotel, amazing view. staff is very very friendly. overall my trip was made more enjoyable because i stayed at the hotel. Side note: the spa is great! would recommend it to everyoneGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with great service"
Bathroom shower and view from my room was not as great as I had hoped, but the service of the staff was absolutely fantastic. Walk to Waikiki was a bit far at about ~20min one way. The cab ride, which the hotel can arrange almost instantly, to Waikiki is quicker and is about $8-9.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been San Francisco"
The Modern is just that. Contemporary, urban, hip, very cool looking. Definitely more of a business hotel. Noisy, bustling place if that's what you are looking for. Relaxing, it's not. Hawaiian experience, not. The biggest flaw is the design of the room. The bathroom is separated by shutters (not sound proof) and, unless you like your "roommate" hearing […] all your business, better turn on the water faucet or the TV on loud. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price, I felt the room was very small. It was clean, modern decor, did not care for the shutters leading connecting the sleeping area and the bathroom, while it was different, I would have rather had the privacy. The staff was exceptional, very courteous and accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The reason why I choose the hotel is because it has with Expedia a VIP status. I thought it would help me out for a room upgrade or a late check out but really I don't think that their really catered towards that. The Hotel called me even before we left from home to make sure if I had any question. Well I did mention that I was a VIP member with Expedia […] and he told me that he will put that in the computer. Well, we wanted to check out later because our flight didn't left until 9:50 pm. Wehave been told that we could check out at 2:00 pm without any charge but after 3:00 pm it cost 99,-- dollars and after that half of the room. Drinks and food also have a very hefty price tag but the food is good. Since my husband forgot his toothbrush it would cost us at the hotel 12,-- dollars but we past because a cross the street is a store where you could got it for only 1.39 dollars. Would I stay there again? Probably because I did had a good time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
