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

Great Hotel! Great Staff throughout the hotel!

Stayed at The Modern for 4 nights. Had a great experience! I had a chance to eat twice at The Grove located inside the hotel. I had the wings on the first might and then breakfast on another morning. Both meals were very good and staff was very nice. Two nights went down to The Study for live music and drinks. Very nice touch!!! Pool and property were nice and clean. Front desk staff also very accommodating. Housekeeping came everyday and room was very clean. I upgraded room to a better partial view. Short walk to other restaurants and to the beach and there's a drug store very close... walking distance to Starbuck's. Enjoyed staying here!

Problem after problem

I had nothing but problems with my stay here and would never come back nor could I ever recommend it to anyone.Elevators - slowwww. Unbelievably slowwwwww - and they seem to stop at floors for no reason (a constant problem).Check in - overly cumbersome and outdated. Putting an advance charge on my card for no reason?? What is that about?Rooms - had to get a new key 4 times- constantly locked out of my room because keys don't work. Combine that with slowwwww elevators and you can waste an hour really easily.Internet - slowwwww and overly complicated. You only need your room number - which is fine if you can ever get to the screen that asks for it. Awful - terrible - frustrating.Room - hot and uncomfortable - closed all blinds - sat in the dark and the AC still couldn't get it done. TV in room had a guide, but the remote was not set up to scroll through the guide so it was useless. Another frustrating experienceFitness center - not bad overall. However, the TV's on the treadmills didn't work properly.I have been to chain hotels in small towns that could execute better than this hotel. Really disappointing and a bad value

Very nice hotel

Every one at the hotel is very service minded. You feel directly that you have arrived to a luxury hotel. The hotel decor and the pool area are very stylish. Clean and big stylish rooms. We stayed with the friends with benefits rate witch was very generous! The hotel has a good location in Waikiki. The best beaches in Waikiki is near the hotel.

Wedding @ The Sun Suite & Terrace

Amazing! Got married in February 2017. Reception was at the sun suite &a terrace at the Modern Hotel, for 64 guests. Where to begin.. firstly the service. Ashley Chang the coordinator, back and forth with emails and me stressing out. When we met up for a meeting and food tasting she had every detail documented, photos printed out and a folder of all that I had emailed her about! The relief of knowing someone is keeping track and actually understanding what you want is refreshing and amazing, she also offered to help set up the decor the day of the wedding so my family/friends didn't have to worry about any of it! On the day she was there to greet us, was grabbing us drinks and making sure everything was going to plan the way we wanted it. (Ps. She didn't have to be there) she also stayed back and was helping pack our stuff to take back to the room. So exceptional and professional! Every meeting we met staff and became family, they would familiarize themselves with us and knew about our wedding, from electrical support to The chef. Christopher Choi the banquet captain was amazing, he coordinated the day, waiters were exceptional and swift. Waiter for each table attending to the guests needs. Chris introduced himself and was checking up on us the whole night, I cannot believe how amazing all the staff were, they new who our parents were and immediate family and made note of making sure everyone was comfortable. The food was exceptional, best food we've had at a wedding, short rib and young chicken, plus the hors deuvres we started with during cocktail hour (they brought samples of each to daniel and I since we missed out) it's that thoughtfulness that went above and beyond. The dessert was amazing, the cake and dessert buffet was demolished and the guests couldn't stop complimenting the quality and presentation of the food. Rookie mistake with the open bar tab was that we didn't limit the drinks lol the guest had the luxury of enjoying and abusing the fancy cocktails that were delicious which meant the bar tab finished earlier than expected hahaha good thing was they were too drunk to notice. Bar tender was amazing and handled the drunk/happy guests so professionally. Nicholas told my father in law "you are the grooms dad, you don't have to pay for your drinks"-just WOW. The venue itself- breathtaking, sunset looking out to the mariner, tent just in case of light rain, we got lights fitted through the hotel. Indoor area. Just a magical venue! Perk of getting married on a Friday- perfect location for the Hilton fireworks at 7:45pm. Made our wedding more magical! Although the modern was more than we budgeted for, we both agreed after that it was worth every penny. Slight downfall? Because it's a Hotel there's some noise restrictions after a certain time and the wedding finishes up around 10pm. Solution- guests went out after in Waikiki and we moved the dancing indoors where it was much cooler anyways. Best day of our lives and the Modern just treated us like royalty. I would recommend this to anyone who could afford it!!!!!!!!! We were so lucky and blessed.Complimentary stay at the modern the night of the wedding- champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries, the rooms are absolutely stunning and the view is beautiful. Daniel and I have had dinner at Ravish and go for drinks at the Study, both at the modern. It's just such a great hotel.
