My girlfriends and I celebrated a bachelorette party at THE MODERN HONOLULU in May 2017. From the friendly valet welcome to a smooth and efficient check-in to guest experience bringing us ice, our welcome experience set a great tone for our staycation. We enjoyed drinks at the pool before getting ready for dinner at a night out at The Study....

Nice simple hotel. Really friendly and efficient staff. We really enjoyed our stay for a few days of our honeymoon. Not perhaps as extravagant as some of the hotels nearby such as the Hilton etc though it had everything we needed. It's appears more of a couples place so no kids was good. Cheapest bottle of champagne for our honeymoon...

i have always loved The Modern Hotel for it's great location and gorgeous views over the Ala Wai Yacht Harbour. It is close enough to comfortably walk to the Ala Moana Shopping and the heart of Waikiki and secluded enough to enjoy the features of this five star resort. I always feel very relaxed and pampered staying at this chic...

We are staying here for 5 nights and have loved everything up until visiting the spa which was very underwhelming. The hotel room is spacious (the most basic room) and very comfortable. The lather products in the room are lovely and topped up each day. We ate dinner at ravish on our first night and it was great. Our waitress...

This hotel was beautiful, clean, and very chic. Lovely spa with excellent service. The pools were nice and it was good that they had different levels and people can spread out and have options. It's a little bit of a walk to the beach but not bad and everything else is nearby. Especially loved the broken surfboard mural they have...

Stayed here for a week over Easter and loved it. Rooms are stylish and simple. Staff are informally professional and super helpful. Excellent location - I prefer staying a little away from the main drag of Waikiki and this is a great choice. Travelled with a friend who has stayed here three times and who says it's always good! Recommendations...

Great hotel at the end of the beach near the harbour, very close to the Hilton Villages Hotel and the lagoon. We opted for a partial sea view and got a side view of the harbour on the 11th floor. Room was good size with all expected amenities and 2 free bottles of water every day. The pool areas were...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Modern Honolulu. The hotel is clean and contemporary. The service was impeccable from the front desk, house keeping to the restaurant, bar and lounge. Jennifer Kim in particular made our stay memorable by providing us with so many great recommendations for where to eat, shop, and sight-see. She went above and beyond to...

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. It’s no wonder Thrillist magazine called us “The best boutique hotel in Hawaii.” ... more   less
