We stayed at the Modern for 4 nights in a partial ocean view room which was facing the pools and the Hilton lagoon and had a great view from our balcony of Friday night fire works , as well as the ocean , so very happy with the room on the seventh floor . Our room was very modern and...

We started off our island hopping adventure with three nights on Oahu at The Modern Honolulu. It is located at the quieter end of Waikiki beach and we were concerned that it might be a bit out of the way. But it only took five minutes to walk from the back of the hotel to the beach and believe me...

I am so glad we decided to go this route - our stay met and exceeded all expectations and hopes starting with Caroline at the front desk, Mimi at Mirimoto, the wonderful staff at concierge, ending with the staff...

This boutique hotel is fantastic. All staff are pleasant and helpful. The amenities and rooms are beautiful - the photographs do not do them justice. Great cocktails by the pool and in The Study bar. The food we ate at the Grove and particularly The Study was better than anywhere else we ate in Waikiki! Food and drinks are 'hotel...

New and clean hotel with fluffy robes and turn-down service, what more can you ask for? Great location next to the beach and Morimoto Restaurant is located here as well. Whenever we want to stay in style, we come to the Modern.

Views are amazing, and perfect for those Friday night fireworks. Plenty of lovely amenities, always replenished along with the towels. Loved the location, especially if you love shopping as we were a hop, skip and jump from Ala Moana. Car hire was organised for us, nothing was to much trouble. Counting the days till my shopping partner in crime &...

We had our wedding reception at The Modern Honolulu ballroom and stayed at The Modern Honolulu Penthouse for two nights. First, everyone at The Modern (especially our catering manager, Ashley Chang) was so accommodating and professional. They worked with us on every detail of our 280 plus person wedding, and made the experience of planning a larger wedding so easy!...

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at The Modern Honolulu this past March for the fifth time. As residents of Oah'u, this property is always at the top of our list for much needed staycations. We highly reccomend splurging on an Ocean Front Suite as the view of the fireworks on Friday nights is awesome. Of all...

Amazing stay at this hotel! The location was great, with a few minutes easy walk to the beach. We liked the fact that it wasn't smack bang in the middle of Waikiki as it made things a little quieter and peaceful, which is exactly what we wanted. Ala Moana shopping centre was only a 10 minute walk away, and to...
