Myself and my partner spent a week here at the end of March. The hotel was recommended by an event company I use in Australia and they said I would love it. They were not wrong. The hotel looks clean, modern and sophisticated. The two pool areas are great, particularly the adults only pool (as we don't have kids its...

I've stayed here 4 times now. Great 'modern' hotel, white linens, no wicker furniture. Great views of the harbour. Just outside of the main beach and hotels but easy to walk to. Easy to walk to Ala Moana shopping centre too. Pool and bar perfect for watching the Friday night fireworks.

My Daughter & I stayed 6 nights at The Modern and we were very happy with the location, it is a short stroll to the Ala Moana Shopping centre and the bus & trolley stop is just around the corner if you don't feel like walking. Beach & lagoon is 2 minute walk away and there are plenty of restaurants...

The Modern staff is friendly, professional and competent. I received A+ service from the front desk, housekeeping, the Sunrise Pool and the guys at the door. I also appreciated how smooth and easy it was to make my reservation on line directly. The entertainment in the evenings was also excellent.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as part of our world tour. We have stayed in some superb 4-5 star hotels. This hotel in my opinion is only a 3. The location is too far away from the main shopping area and restaurants. There are a lot of homeless people living around the Harbour so did not feel...

The Good: Convenient location to the shopping centre; hire cars; beach & lagoon and 20min walk to Waikiki. Pool staff very happy and attentive. Pool area and atmosphere good for adults ... not really a kids environment. Rooms are adequate. The Bad: i) No face washers (face towel) was provided on day 2. A call to room services came with...

Thank you so much to the guys at Modern. Made our stay a great experience. The two different pool locations offer family and adult facilities so it's perfect for people wanting to stay away from children and the main part is perfect for families with kids. WIN WIN. Best cocktails we tried. A bit pricey but worth it. Cheers from...

This was the third time coming back to The Modern and it gets better every time. Excellent location in Waikiki, not too crowded and not too loud but still close to everything. The food and drinks are absolutely outstanding. Exceptional service, staff remember your name and are polite and courteous. Always greeted with a smile by all staff. This hotel...

This is a beautiful hotel in a perfect location with excellent facilities. Set above the harbour/marina, it is a very short journey from the airport. It is an easy stroli onto Waikiki Beach and also very close (5 minute walk) to the Ala Moana shopping centre.

Just wrapped a week at the Modern. I've stayed at about every major hotel from Ala Moana down to Waikiki and while each has their charm, great and not so great things, The Modern it seems just manages to check all the boxes on luxury, friendliness and comfort. The chill ambiance just simply isn't matched at other hotels, the staff...
