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

Beautiful white against the pretty blue ocean

I stayed 2 nights and had an enjoyable stay. The room was a partial ocean view with king. The big chairs on the lanai were really nice to sit and enjoy the view and breeze. I was able to check in upon my arrival (thanks) and start enjoying the hotel right away.The food is really good by the pool.. Try the burger! The room was a nice size and the shower also. The bed was a bit hard for me , but that's just personal taste. It is just on the edge of the start of Waikiki.. I enjoyed the beach area on this end as it's less crowded and the lagoon nearby is nice. It was a nice mix of ages and people. They have lounge beds you can reserve which is nice to get some shade. The hotel was 95pct full when I was there but never felt crowded. The staff is very friendly. I would stay here again definately.

Excellent Service

The rooms at the Modern are clean and fresh, but I was most impressed with the quality and level of attentive service of the staff, especially Sunny. I had an early flight in, and when I arrived, they endeavored to get me in my room early, but more importantly assessed my needs and got me into an excellent room. Perfect start to my holiday.

Wonderful for Meetings

From the moment we stepped onto the property, we were met with smiles. Sara Lester and Maurice have been wonderful to work with - any changes we've had in our set up have been handled on the spot and with ease. The entire staff has been a pleasure to work with, and you can tell that they take pride in their work. This has been a wonderful venue to hold our meeting, and I would highly recommend this as your next event location.

Great location and beautiful staff

This was our visit to Waikiki and The Modern didn't disappoint. It's a smaller boutique hotel and the service was top quality. We were greeted by Oliver and Brianna upon our arrival and our room was ready to get into at 2:45 on our arrival. We arrived on a Friday and enjoyed a pleasant and peaceful dinner in The Grove by the pool. Carly was welcoming staff with roots from the northeast and took care of our hungry and thirsty family after 14 hours of travel. Our food server Jantzen was also so helpful with travel info and tour tips. He is a fine young man that spent a pleasurable amount of time to point us in the right direction. He and Carly both have a big future in the hotel business as their attention to the customer was so effortless for them both. Thank you! We grabbed towels and headed to be lagoon for fireworks. It was a memorable experience to share with so many other visitors and locals. Everyone made us feel so welcome. mahalo!!We spent the next day renting beach umbrellas and lagoon paddle boards from KOA. Great staff and so much fun. Pack snorkel gear for a nearby reef for some decent snorkel excursion. Our checkout was simple and our hotel bonuses were applied without exception. We would definitely recommend the hotel to NY friends with older children. The location is perfect.
