"New trendy hotel"
The hotel was very trendy and the facility is new so it was a comfortable stay. No old carpet smell like the other hotels at Waikiki. The food and ambiance at the pool side dinning was great, very romantic at night! My only complain is that it is not close to the beach.

"Holiday getaway"
We are a Kauai family passing through Honolulu for the holidays. We very much enjoyed hanging out at the Modern, dining, pool lounging, working out and using the hotel as a base to explore the city. The holiday decorations were creative and clever. The staff was super helpful and kind in all departments and we were delighted in our hotel choice. We will definitely be back many times in the future.

"A place to stay for our family in Oahu."
Exceptional experience with no hitches during a very busy time of year. Christmas! Thank you Modern Hotel for hosting my family of four; myself, my husband, and two children. We would come again. Professional, clean and not confusing. One thing though; we wish the rooms had a bathtub or at least there would be a jacuzzi on property. There were neither available.

"On the border between Honolulu and Waikiki"
Really enjoyed the Modern Honolulu. It is near everything but away from the crowds. The staff were very helpful and the room was comfortable and clean with a nice balcony. Even though we did not have an ocean view we could see the ocean from the balcony.

This is by far one of the best hotels in Honolulu. Being that I frequent Oahu for business, I am a loyal guest of the Modern because of their exceptional service. I ALWAYS enjoy my stays at the Modern. The food is great, staff goes above and beyond and you have to check out their spa!

"great hotel in a quieter area"
We stayed one night directly in the heart of Waikiki and then another night here. I much preferred this hotel. It was not as crowded, and had some great places to eat and a cute harbour bar next door that were not touristy overpriced. Can walk directly out to front, the harbour is there and then down to the left is the lagoon next to the beach which is a nice place to go in the water or sit on the grass with a blanket. would return and stay here.Beds are super nice and so is the shower and the large tv.

The hotel is only 10 mins walk away from Waikiki beach and close to the main shopping avenue and restaurants. It's very clean and our room with sea view was spacious! They have one of the best outdoor pools with lots of sun bathing chairs and their restaurant Morimoto serves really good sashimi!

"OK"
I would rate the hotel 4.5 stars. The service all around was perfect: Front desk, concierge, pool, cleaning, were excellent help. We stayed here for 5 nights. My only major complaint: These 2 young stuck up staff members by the pool treated us as if we were not paying customers! MAJOR snobby attitude. What a turn off. We ordered food. Needed the check. Our waitress was no where to be found for over an hour! I went to up to the towel girl to ask her if we can get the check. Towel girl rolled her eyes at us, treated us as if we didn't understand english, and interrogated us on where we sat by the pool. I had my ID and my credit card on me and told her my room number so they could put it to my card/room. She still insisted on me actually repeating what i had ordered on my menu. She made my wife and i feel like we were lying and not paying customers! Incredible. The fact that I'm even writing this on a online text box on my day back from the trip... I wish these 2 people did not taint the perfect experience we had at this hotel. Also, the hotel has a popular nightclub so if you want a good nights sleep on friday or saturday night... good luck. the street is full of yelling from loud drunk frat like men and women. Not peaceful at night when they all spill out of the club...

"Just a real nice getaway"
This was a destination wedding for a friend. Real nice. The experience was great, from walking in to checking out. Just prepare for Maui hotel prices on food and drink. There are, however, nearby bars and eateries in Wailea. Not that I'm a good golfer, but it would be nice to walk the links nearby. You can also go snorkeling right from the beach. Basically all that you would need on a getaway vacation is there. Concierge is very helpful, especially pre-trip when emailing with them about excursions and getting to the hotel from the airport.

"Great location for both beach and shopping"
It was so easy to access Waikiki beach for morning walks or sunset strolls. Ala Moana Shopping Center is a short walk away. Hotel staff were always available and attentive. We enjoyed samples of refreshments by the poolside, and free coffee every morning. The hotel design is very attractive and, well, modern!

The hotel is very modern. Mostly younger generation stays there will make me feel great to have people around the same ago around. Staff in the hotel is The hotel is about 5mjn walk to Waikiki beach, not on it but not far at all. The pool area is nice but a bit small to really swim. But bar and kitchen service at the pool area is great. Gym is good size and clean. The interior design of the room is very nice, modern and white colored with Hawaii style decoration. The bath room design in standard room is pretty interesting. I and my family had a great experience staying there

"Great suite, walking distance to much shopping"
We loved our stay at the Modern Honolulu. The suite was awesome and very comfortable. They had a great shower. The general pool was a nice place to relax. The provided slippers were not large enough to fit my size 12 feet but it wasn't a big deal. The turn down service was a nice touch, my wife loved the complementary cookies! There is an ABC store across the street to enable you to stock up on some cheaper snacks and beverages. The partnership with the garage next store was nice to help save on nightly parking. If you walk west you'll find an enormous mall, if you walk east you will find tons of shops. The few down sides of the hotel are we paid for an ocean view suite but it wasn't direct viewing, it was off to the side, it may just be how things are defined in the industry, we had a view over a parking garage on the 16th floor, off to the side was the marina which was very nice, we could see the sunset from the balcony. Next, it's a bit of a walk to get to the real beach, you could walk down the ramp near the pool to the marina parking lot, follow the fence a little bit, enter a man made lake area, go around the lake to the beach... or you could walk down the street and cut through the Hilton Village neither are very quick but manageable. Overall we were very happy with what we got for value compared to the other hotel we booked on the island.

"Nicest hotel close to the airport!"
Good place to stay within 15-20 minutes to airport. Much better than the hour (or more sometimes) ride into Waikiki. Coffee and tea in the am - but you have to pay for that croissant! Nice pools and bar. Pricey but you get what you pay for and what you get is a very pleasant atmosphere and immaculate grounds. Would return again. Morimoto is good but again pricey. If you know good sushi from NY or other areas you may be a tad disappointed. Great room and deck though - it is a nice experience.

"Better than a St. Regis"
My husband and I came to the modern for our first anniversary. We were beyond pleased. We've traveled all over the world and stayed in hotels famous for their service - The Modern is on par or better than the best of them. Service was absolutely impeccable, facilities were fantastic, everything was perfect. Front desk even knew our name by the time we left and this is not a small hotel. Promise you wont be disappointed. Can't wait to go back. Food is a little expensive, but typical for a nice hotel. F

"Loved it"
I can't say enough about The Modern and my fantastic stay there. It was perfect. I'd recommend it to you. I have previously stayed on Waikiki, and wasn't sure about being a few blocks off. But The Modern is so perfectly situated, it's better than being on the beach. The Pool and the crew out there (say Hi to David the bartender for me!) have obviously taken some Be Really Cool pills at the start of the day, and they are. The front desk team is top of the line. The bars are all great. Even Addiction, with a bit of a rowdy crowd late-night, but still a good place to hang. I'm already looking at booking another trip in a few months. Long way to go from DC, but if it's not too obvious, I think it's worth it.

"Friend's Hawaiian Wedding"
The pool was the best part of the hotel although we ended up spending all our day at the beach (walking distance). Valet parking is the only in and out option and it's $28 per night plus tip. We ended up mostly walking and taking cabs. Our phone was broken (unable to dial guest services) and we told the front desk but they seemed to forget to fix it. Rooms were clean and simple but pretty nice. Nice balcony. Nice bathroom accessories.

The Modern has a fresh approach to a tropical get-away. Every area is cool, clean and subtle with a hip vibe. The pool area is wonderful and looks out to the yacht harbor and ocean; an adult pool is available as well on a private upper level with sand and tropical foliage. It is in the Waikiki area so is conveniently located for beach and water sports, but also for shopping, dining and touring.

This was my wife's and my first visit to Waikiki, and for this short vacation (4days) all we really wanted to was unwind. The Modern was such a great choice. It doesn't feel overrun like many of the other nearby hotels, looks amazing, food, drinks and hotel amenities are top notch, and we were treated in such a VIP way there by the entire staff. Love it, recommend it, and would stay there again.

I LOVED everything about this place, from check-in (with cold towels and house pressed lemonade) to check-out the whole experience was fantastic. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, the attention to detail was amazing and the pools and grounds were just lovely. My only tip would be not to get a city view room as this was quite noisy and avoid the hotel bar later at night if you are after a quiet drink as it turns into a nightclub (entertaining for people watching however!). If you want a luxurious holiday experience this is the place to stay.

"Well located hotel in need of slight refinements"
The Modern is a well located hotel if you don't want to be in the heart of congested Waikiki, which is definitely attractive for business travelers who need to get to downtown Honolulu. The food and beverage service needs to be better if you want to justify luxury resort prices, the rooms are starting to show wear, and the hall and room carpets need to be replaced. Some positives: -Location: As a business traveler, The Modern is the best located property from which to access downtown Honolulu. -Free internet and water: It's a little thing, but nice not to be overcharged for internet and water. -Like the water coolers and sunscreen station at the pool -Live music: nightly live music is great. Potential improvements: -Elevators: Wait times were often way too long. Consistently waited 10+ minutes in morning and evenings. Observed one couple walk down from the 11th floor b/c they were tired of waiting. -Carpet: Common area and room carpets need replacement. Original carpet has not only worn poorly, but also seems prone to showing stains. -Rooms starting to show wear: laminate was peeling off bed, carpets dirty/fraying. -Uneven service: Some servers/staff were great, others seemed disinterested. Need better training/staffing to be on par with other resorts. -Showers leak: I had two different rooms during my stay. Both showers leaked resulting in huge puddles on the floor.

"Great hotel for a few days"
First time to Honolulu, with reservations, seeing as people told us it's like LA... Actually not at all. A little like Vegas on the beach although no gambling. Very clean and very accessible. Our hotel was well located at the north end if Waikiki. The lagoon was nice, but the beaches were awesome. Basically different beaches and sections of sea that fit your fancy. I don't like the sea, or what's in it, but even I liked going in. Very safe, clear, shallow and with or without waves, depending in which section you go to. The hotel had a great vibe, great good and service. Perfect for 4-5 nights. Would I stay here again. Yes!

"Too modern for me."
Arrived early due to rescheduling of a flight only to be told that we would have to wait 10 hours to check in or pay for another night (it was already 4 in the morning). Paid for the extra night at the Rack Room rate (higher that what i booked for the rest of the stay on expedia). The room was clean and bright, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was nice but the whole thing reminded me of a nice version of a dorm room or a teenage girl's room. Had to switch rooms after the first night due to noise from the street and garage across the street and had to call the dest 4 times to get this arranged. Says there is a private "beach" but there is no beach here. It is just off waikiki and the closest water is a stagnant marina. There is a small but nice pool area. The hospital staff was nice and "trendy looking" but you know if your entire staff is in their mid 20s, they likely don't have much experience running a hotel.
