The modern is a stunning property. However please choose your room during your stay. We have been given a room beside the lifts and it is impossible to sleep from the noise of the lift continuously going up and down. The disappointing thing is they are not willing to change rooms or discount the stay. For $450USD a night I would expect to sleep at night. We would stay here if we could change rooms but they have been very unhelpful with this.

All the staff were warm, friendly and made us feel extremely welcoming as my husband and I were on our honeymoon. From day one, we knew this is the best hotel to stay at. I highly suggest to spend some time to dine at the hotel and relax at the pool. The room was clean and comfortable. We are missing The Modern Honolulu very much and can't wait to go back.

This hotel is one of the best in Honolulu. It's only 5 years old which is new & from check in to check out I really can't fault it. It's a popular hotel for Aussies offering some great coffee, which is hard to find & a beautiful breakfast & with all local produce looked fresh. All the staff were really friendly & welcoming which made me feel right at home.

We stayed for one night to attend a wedding. Our room was entry level, close to lifts but excellent. Spacious, quiet and very comfortable and well appointed. I can't report highly enough of the friendliness of the reception and concierge staff. Around the pool staff a little less professional. Best deal, a poolside daybed for $100 that simply is a charge against food and beverage, breakfast or lunch around the pool with a drink or two more than covers that.

We booked a two bedroom suite for five nights for our family about 6 months ago. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. Even though the hotel was very expensive, but the room and the service was excellent. They provided a crib, microwave and a frig for our grandson. The view of Waikiki beach was unbeatable. The restaurant, pool and the room service were the best. We will do it again, maybe in 5 years.

We stayed four nights at The Modern Honolulu in August 2016. We had what was called a partial ocean view room, and although it was not ocean front, it was a terrific ocean (and city) view, better than one would expect for a partial ocean view. The room itself was tidy, clean and modern. The hotel is not on Waikiki, but easy walking distance. Its Study lounge is a good place to hear music and get a drink or appetizers in the evening, and Morimoto's is outstanding. The Waikiki area is not our cup ... Read more

Felt very spoilt . Just a littl off the main strip at Waikiki, it is well placed to walk to Alola Moana Shops and is located at the end of Waikiki Beach. Poolside is fantastic but get there early as the best chairs go fast. The Mai tais at the poolside bar are quite lovely as is the food. The rooms are spacious and very clean. If you are getting a city side room try for a high level as you will get a reasonable view of the marina from your balcony.

We stayed here for 4 nights in two separate rooms. The rooms and the beds were spacious and comfortable. It was very clean as well which was a huge plus for me. It's a good distance from the shopping centre (Ala Moana centre) and the main shopping street (Kalakaua street) - both about 15 minute walk. The hotel is also just a few minutes away from the famous Waikiki beach (go through the back way around Hilton and you'll get there). No complaints and will come back again.

After the usual trolling of hotels, reviews and changing our minds, we finally settled on the Modern for the first 4 nights of our 9 day Holiday. We'll wing the rest once we get a look around. As we are a family of 4 with teenage children, we needed either a separate room or 2br suite. The modern offers some good options for two room suites, but you really need to contact them direct, as this wasn't entirely clear on the websites. We settled for the Oceanfront suite with adjoining room - Quite p... Read more

Such an excellent hotel. Loved every minute of our stay and cannot wait to go back! The staff were all friendly and we were surprised to be asked if our stay was a special occasion (it was our honeymoon), we then received an upgraded room and also congratulatory champagne/ strawberries delivered to our room. The overall vibe at the pools, bars and around the hotel was amazing. Morimoto restaurant was spectacular and we also received a complementary dessert as a honeymoon gift. Great experience a...

4 friends and I stayed at The Modern after 2 weeks on o'hau and Maui for one night. Our accommodation ranged from Air bnb to private rental therefore this was luxury. The rooms were immaculately clean- but a word of warning; if you are sharing with your male best friend make sure the shutters in the bathroom are closed before you shower ū??? We ate in one of the hotels restaurants during our stay and whilst the food was amazing the service unfortunately was not. Very friendly but somewhat incomp... Read more

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. The service, amenities and rooms are well above average and exceeded my expectations. It's close to the Waikiki beach action but just out enough to not be in the hustle and bustle of the crowds. Pick up for the tours are a two minute walk away which was helpful. Close to everything. The Study was a great bar to finish the day. The in room coffee machine was a life saver! Highly recommend this hotel. It's a little more than the others but totally worth it.

We stayed here for two nights and thought the hotel was elegant and unpretentious. There are two pools, which offer a nice view of the sunrise and set and the refreshments are lovely. Sunscreen and infused water is located conveniently in the open spaces and free of charge. Additionally the bookcase/library opens up in the evening to a festive speak easy type lounge with live entertainment. The staff is courteous and helpful at every step of the way and getting a cab is a seamless experience fro... Read more

Came to The Modern for 4 nights during our honeymoon. The staff was incredibly friendly and always looking to be helpful. The rooms are very clean, well decorated, and although they're small, they're very comfortable. We were supposed to have a partial-ocean view and although you could see the water from a very specific angle on the balcony, I would not pay extra for what was mostly just a view of another hotel's parking garage again. Perhaps a pool view or something would have been nicer. The ... Read more

The Modern Honolulu is a pure gem. Situated near Ala Wai Harbor, the hotel is within minutes to Kalakaua Avenue and the famed Waikiki Beach. With sweeping views of the ocean (pay for the upgrade it is worth it) there is something truly magical about watching the waves crashing up against the rocks and taking in that sunset from your balcony (or pool) with bubbly. The guest rooms are well appointed with very good amenities. The crisp design makes for a refreshing experience. The couch is ver... Read more

Three nights and enjoyed the entire stay. On arrival, friendly conversation at reception checking in and no queues with bags promptly delivered to our room. We stayed on the 25th floor with a large balcony at the side with views of the pool and the sea as well as parts of the business district. The room was modern (goes with the name), well decorated and clean. No problem with any of the room or the room service. We booked a Mustang convertible car from the hotel direct from the concierge.... Read more

We needed to find a hotel that would accommodate 450 guests for our company party. We visited many different hotels and The Modern Honolulu was definitely the best one we found. The ballroom was large, beautiful, and best of all.... Ashley Chang and her team were phenomenal to work with. They really worked with our budget and helped us achieve an elegant event. The Chef and the food was amazing. Our experience working with the whole team at this hotel far exceeded our expectations. I would give ... Read more

We stayed at the modern for 4 nights for our honeymoon.

The Modern is located just off the main touristy part of Waikiki and is not as big as the other resorts located near by. The concerige was very helpful in giving great reccommendations fo...

I recently stayed at The Modern in Oahu Hawaii.

I stayed at the Modern for 4 nights in November. We were in a suite with a great view over the Marina. The room was lovely - clean, modern (of course!), spacious and a very relaxing base for our trip. The Modern is next to the Hilton and although it's not directly on the beach, it's a very short walk. The hotel looks over the Marina, which is a nice change to your typical Hawaii hotel. The restaurant and pool are both amazing. In short, a 10/10 visit and I'd definitely return!

This is a long overdue review. My Fiance and I stayed at the Modern for 4 nights. The rooms were pretty good in size. The design was simplistic yet just enough pop. Being a corner room we had great views of the harbor and the city. We had large windows the span across one side and the other side led out to the balcony; it was spacious and let in nice breeze with a cool looking oversize shutter. The staff was on point, for the most part. There was a lady in the front desk that you could tell was ... Read more

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 job! Signing up for friends with benefits gives you many perks.

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 marina was so pretty at sunset. I love warm pools so the very shallow adults only sunset pool was perfect for me just to chill on the foam bed. The pool/room ser... Read more

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. Upon arrival, Sunny at the front desk was really personable, open and warm. There was still a respectful efficiency in the interaction, but he understood how to engage with a genuine ... Read more

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 a good night's rest.

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 as such, from our room. One assumes if you come to Waikiki you want to be close to the buzz of the town, not the case with this hotel. We stayed at the Halekulani Hotel last time and... Read more

Hotel itself is fantastic - modern set ups not like a some of other run-down 80s hotels. Location - Very handy to Ala Moan, only 8-10 mins walk. If you prefer the Waikiki Beach strip then the Modern might be too far for you. We make good use of the Pink trolley line when we visit Waikiki. Check in/Check out was smooth - minor thing is house keeping never replenish the tea/coffee/sugar. I had to ask a few times during our 7 nights stay. Pool - we use the first floor pool and it was great, no... Read more

We only stayed two nights. Chose this hotel for views and location. We were in Honolulu to tour the Pearl Harbor memorial. If you can, coordinate your trip for a Friday night stay. There are fireworks on the beach at sunset. For a great view from your balcony, ask for a room on the Lagoon side (odd numbers). We were on the 12th floor. Perfect!!! Restaurants/bars by pool were great. Morimoto Restaurant in hotel, to us, was over rated and over priced. Shuttle notes below: I doubt they o... Read more
