Great hotel away from the crowds

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Great location but away from the crowds and big tour group stays. Nice hotel for couples, with a child free pool area available. Hotel has everything you need (you have to ask what's available - it took us a couple of days to find out we could have a coffee machine brought to our room). Very helpful and friendly staff.

Clean & Comortable Stay

It was a pleasant stay. Nice pool area. Perfect location for Ala Moana (shopping) Centre (literally down the road). If you don't want to stay in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, Modern Honoulu is a great location. Walking distance to Kalakua Avenue - about 15 mins.

Great for a girl's trip!

From checking in to checking out, there was nothing the staff at the Modern wouldn't do for us. Great service by Mark at the concierge desk with booking activities on short notice and The Study was perfect for a few drinks to end our evenings. I just wish the weather had been better so more time could have been spent poolside! Complimentary tea and coffee for early morning starts was a wonderful touch. The location was perfect - Ala Moana shopping centre was a short walk from the hotel and there were plenty of places for breakfast, lunch and dinner nearby. An easy walk to Waikiki Beach and to the main shopping strip. Will definitely stay again. Mahalo!

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Definitely book the shuttle bus to/from the Waikele Premium Outlets. We didn't arrange a shuttle out there and spent a considerable amount of time (and money) in a taxi. I think we used PG Plovers and the pick up/drop off is less than 5 minutes away.

Great hotel for everyone

Located 10 minute walk from Waikiki Beach this hotel is in the perfect location without being in the hustle. 5 minutes in the other direction is the Ala Moana shopping complex. Then there's the beach which is directly behind the hotel and is much quieter than Waikiki. We spent most of our days at one of the 2 pools at the hotel which caters for adults only and it was amazing! Constant service from the staff, drinks and food flowed whenever required. The Grove bar serves up yummy food for lunch and dinner and the sunset over the marina accompanied by live music puts a nice end to any day. staff great, gym facilities great, retail shop great, morimoto restaurant great. You really don't need to leave this hotel for anything. Everything about The Modern is just that.

Fantastic Hotel if not for the Night Club

We only marked the hotel down because of the noise from their nightclub that operates Thursday through Saturday. We arrived on the Saturday and the nightclub kept us awake to 3am on the Sunday morning! So, Sunday to Wednesday you will get a good nights sleep but not sure about the other nights. Wonderfully refitted and modernised hotel. Not close to Waikiki beach but oversees the Marina and if you want to shop at Ala Moana you probably won't find a better location (5-10 minute walk). Quality of the rooms was very chic and generally excellent and staff right across the hotel were also excellent. The two rooftop pool bars were also very good and the gym was reasonably well equipped.
