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

Our Experience

We stayed at The Modern for 7 nights in June. It was absolutely amazing. I can't thank Jennifer Kim enough for her help in letting us know of all the great places to go in Hawaii, her knowledge and advise made our holiday an absolutely amazing experience. I have to also acknowledge each and every staff member at The Modern, they were so helpful and willing to help and advise. I can't thank them enough as well.I would recommend The Modern to anyone. Everything about the property from the food (Ravish lives up to its name), the bar (Which is brilliant and hidden behind a bookcase), the lobby filled withe surfboards broken in competition, the different scents and the room service is scintillating and exciting.We will be coming back to Hawaii to explore more of what she has to offer and I know exactly where we will stay.A wonderful establishment only made better by the people who work there.Thank you so much for an amazing experience.Chin and Tia

Lovely rooms, great amenities, close to beach!

Absolutely loved the hotel room look and feel - very fresh, beachy, and open. The shutters allow you to enjoy the outdoors inside, if you want, but the room gets plenty cool if AC is your thing. I liked that there are 2 pools - one for adults only and one for families. My husband and I were traveling without out kids, so it was nice to have. The "lemonade shot" and warm towel when we checked in was a nice touch as well.The proximity to the beach was great as well - you can walk to the lagoon and straight onto Waikiki beach from there. Highly recommend this place if you want to stay away from the huge resorts in the area!

Beautiful Modern hotel in a great location

Wonderful stay to end our trip. Great location to buses and restaurants. Room was for the lack of a better word modern and spacious with all necessary ammenities requried. Had the room ready for us well in advance of our check in time. Beautiful views from the pool deck and freat views of the fireworks on friday from the city view room. Even helped in contacting our shuttle provider to make arrangement to pick us up earlier to go to the airport. Wonderful welcoming service provided. Will definitely be staying here longer next time we go to honolulu.

Amazing Hotel - Highly Recommend!

I absolutely love this hotel! The rooms, pools, restaurant and overall ambiance cannot be beat! I also had one of the best experiences at the spa. Not only was my massage incredible, but the staff was amazing. Lexi went out of her way to create an entire itinerary for me to explore the North Shore when I had mentioned I am from out of down and didn't know what to do on Sunday. Her recommendations were perfect and it was one of the best days of my trip. Overall, ALL of the staff was exceptional and I cannot wait to return to the property. Highly recommend!

Exceptional service and great food

We had a meeting with about 40 people spanning several days. Overall, the culture at the Modern was consistently great Every staff member appeared genuinely interested in and happy to oblige their customer's needs. Well done.The Hotel's meeting coordinator, Sara, was always available to service our meeting needs, as were the audio visual people to serve our presentation needs. The wait staff were very attentive to our large group during an evening reception at the Ravish & dinner in the Sun Suite. The wait staff and those tending both bars in the pool area and Ravish were also so friendly and attentive to our guests. The food was incredibly tasty where we ate in pool/bar area with a humus plate and the best avocado toast breakfast ever.Rooms were very clean and floor-to-ceiling windows made it a bright environment. Housekeeping serviced rooms upon request, daily or otherwise respected privacy. The hotel's engineering handled room and other issues quickly and with positive energy. Only have two comments on room improvement: 1) make outlets more accessible for devices (desk and night stands); and 2) thin cloths hangers would make better use of limited closet space.
