The Modern Honolulu
- What's Included
This hotel was as the name suggests super contemporary. Lots of clean lines, interesting art and cool music. Very chic! We loved it. Our room was immaculate, bright and airy with a beachy Hawaiian vibe. We had a big balcony which overlooked the marina, perfect for sunny breakfasts and the wonderful Waikiki sunsets. The pool areas of this hotel are so impressive - gorgeous enough to tear you away from the beautiful Hawaiian beaches! We particularly liked the The Study bar hidden away behind the bookcase, they had great live music on in there and the cocktails were fabulous! There is a nightclub on site but we didn't get the chance to go. The hotel is only a short walk into the hubbub of Waikiki and it's many shops, restaurants and bars. Waikiki beach is also only a stones throw away. There was a pretty salt water lagoon right next door which is great for children and a huge indoor shopping centre just across the road. Parking was just across the street next to the marina - you just have to remember to pay for it each day. We would definitely stay at the Modern again when we return to Honolulu.
We loved The Modern so much that we have stayed there twice. We really enjoyed hanging out at the pool on the beds, and wandering down to the lagoon for a snorkel (100 metres away). The nicest thing about The Modern was that it felt unrushed, and uncrowded amongst the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. We loved it, and would totally recommend.
Considering this is supposed to be a 5-star hotel, I think not! We had multiple problems with our room. Beds were extremely uncomfortable! The mattress itself was about 8 inches thick on a slab. I realize it's a matter of preference, but if I am vacationing, I wish to collapse in a cushy bed. Housekeeping was absolutely terrible-dirty glasses and dishes were never removed from the room, supplies (coffee, etc.) never re-stocked, after returning from a day trip, the balcony slider door was left open and we returned to an extremely hot room after spending the day in the heat, items stolen from the room!! Both sunglasses and an expensive LED camera light. Had numerous discussions with the hotel manager and after talking with a manager, the very next day I returned to the room to change for an appointment I had to find the maid "cleaning" the room, when I asked if she could return in a short while she blantantly told me no and pointed to her phone where it stated the room needed to be cleaned by 12. She then proceeded to clean around me in the room while I was changing. Unreal!! I will be informing many others of my displeasure of this property and will not be recommending it at all!
We arrived at The Modern early in the morning our first impressions of the place was the ambience and cleanliness. As we had arrived early after a long flight the staff were very friendly and helped us get our rooms a lot earlier for a much needed shower 10 out of 10 for the ftont staff. Our room was spacious and very clean The amenities at the pool were great all g with the staff. Food was incredible in the restaurants. We so enjoyed our stay that we cancelled the hotel we had booked on our return trip and restayed at The Modern.
There is a fresh beach vibe to this property with a relaxed but classy atmosphere. The rooms and suites are very well appointed with great views of the ocean ( if you are in an oceanfront or ocean facing room). The beach is a 5 min walk. Outlet shopping is 10 mins away and you are only a 10 min walk to the hustle and bustle of downtown Honolulu. The food is of very good quality with classic flavors. The hidden bar behind the book case is quintessentially Modern.A special mention here for Jennifer Kim who was very knowledgeable about the hotel and all the surrounds. Jennifer was very kind to spend the afternoon with my group to show us all the around the hotel and a beautiful pool areas.
