Where innovative design meets barefoot luxury, The Modern Honolulu promises a refreshingly new experience. Home to Iron Chef Morimoto's celebrated new restaurant Morimoto Waikiki, the hotel's understated elegance and service has earned acclaim for service and design during its opening year. It's posh without being pretentious, chic without being overdone, luxurious, yet brilliantly laid back. At The Modern Honolulu, stilettos are welcome. And so are flip-flops.
Location: 14km from Honolulu Int'l Airport

  • Bella G :
Great hotel - better pool area!

I've stayed at the Modern twice now and both times it's been a great boutique hotel experience. The rooms are lovely- although not a fancy 5 star if that's what you're expecting. The best part is the pool area where I have spent many days lazing around, drinking cocktails and reading books! The wait staff in that area are very attentive and helpful, even bringing you drinks while you're in the pool! There aren't a huge amount of lounges so you do need to keep an eye on it, although we didn't have any problems getting one.The only downside, there's not much around the hotel. It's a 20 min walk into downtown Waikiki, making it tough in the middle of the day in peak summer to get the energy to go anywhere. It didn't really phase us, but if you were wanting to go shopping everyday it could prove annoying! Apart from that, I'd highly recommend The Modern! Amazing concierges as well who were always super helpful

  • Simon G :
Great location and ameneties

This hotel was a great stay for our final nights of my honeymoon. The check in process was great and we were greeted by very friendly staff. We had a room with a great view of the ocean and other high rise buildings. The pool is great but can sometimes be a bit overrun with locals looking to "party". Located on a little bit of a busy street but that is to be expected in Honolulu.

  • Rebecca R :
fresh, clean and vibrant

We stayed May 2017, our room was clean and fresh, peaceful. We booked a city view (but also a great view of the harbour and ocean). Great bar staff, pricey bar food but of a good standard. We took a yoga class with Rachel on our first morning, she was fantastic- what an introduction to Hawaii, so relaxing.Lovely hotel, I would return to the Modern!

Excellent hotel for meeting and vacation

We stayed in the Modern Honolulu for 10 days for my meeting in Hawaii convention center. The Modern hotel is within 10 minutes walk to convention center and very convenient to buy our daily needs (water, fruits...) in ABC store just across the street. Easy walk to Waikiki shopping area and beach while stay secluded for relaxation and resting. The concierge staffs are very knowledgeable and helpful for our local tour arrangements. The room is arranged in modern and simple style. The cleaning staff keep our room clean and well arranged every day. The bathroom amenities are lemongrass scent with great texture. Though the swimming pool is very small, the hotel is within 10 minutes walk to a nice Kahanamoku beach for swimming. We are happy for choosing the Modern hotel as our business and vacation hotel.
