From the moment you arrive, the front desk staff makes you feel at home. The staff is ready to assist you in every way. We made our way to our room, very "modern" and zen like. The facilities are warm and inviting...the pool area and dining areas are great. From casual poolside dining to a romantic dinner in their specialty...

Love it here. Visited Hawaii many times, and this was my favorite stay. The lobby smells so beautiful, it starts the feel and ambiance of the hotel. The restaurants are very good (quite pricey, but there is also less expensive dining right across street) Love The Modern

The hotel is nearer the side of the beach that is quieter than the main area. It is also walking distance to the ala moana shopping center which offers so much in terms of food and shopping. Diamond head is a mere 15 mins by cab or 30 minutes by bus away. Outlet and polynesian center buses all stop at...

Wonderful hotel in quiet location but near to centre of Honolulu. From the moment we arrived we were met with smiles and genuine warmth from all the staff. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, including lovely toiletries. Pool area was well set out with great views over yacht harbour and sea. Would not hesitate to return!

I stayed at The Modern Honolulu for 10 nights in a king city view room. We were placed on the top floor in a corner room, and were spoilt with beautiful views of the marina and city scape, looking down Ala Moana Bvd. The rooms are tidy and fairly spacious, I believe the corner rooms allow for more living space...

I booked this hotel suite for my son and his girlfriend and my husband and I. We came in for the ball but used this as a vacation. It was a luxurious hotel and would definitely recommend for families or honeymooners. They offer water/ice in the afternoon delivered to you door along with Hawaiian cookies on the nightstand ready for...

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.
