The Modern Honolulu in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Nowhere else but The Modern Honolulu can you find such a dynamic combination of laid-back beach life and cosmopolitan excitement. It’s two minutes from the beach – including prime surf spots where locals flock – and walking distance to downtown Honolulu’s galleries and luxury shopping scene. Explore Honolulu’s bars and street food (don’t miss the roadside shrimp trucks), but don’t stray far from the hotel – Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s fine dining concept constantly wins Hawaii’s top accolades, and at night, celeb DJs turn Addiction into a club straight out of South Beach.

Throw on a sarong and gaze at the sea over Kona coffee and a plate of macadamia nut waffles topped with bananas and Chantilly cream. Borrow a board and hit the waves, drawing inspiration from the colorful Herbie Fletcher installation of surfboards in the lobby. Unwind by the pair of freeform outdoor pools. Assemble an unforgettable sushi plate, complemented by sake tinged with honeyed walnuts.

We came here for business but have extended our stay to enjoy some vacation time. This is our 4th trip to Waikiki. The hotel is elegant, chic, and a great place for couples. It doesn’t feel overcrowded or touristy. The food and cocktails here are exceptional. What we’ve been most impressed with is the staff and the service. They make their guests all feel like VIP’s. Maurice, the manager, made us feel right at home. A staff member (Sparky) gave us some great recommendations for places to eat and things to do that are off the beaten path. We would definitely come back here!

We were in a room on the 11th floor. A single bed, small couch thing, closet, and bathroom. On the way into the hotel you're greeted with tiny lemonade-like drinks and a mint-smelling cloth to wipe your face and hands. It's really nice and immediately feels incredibly fancy, but it would be nice if there were an option to buy more of that lemonade :-) It's a beautiful view, the pools (multiple pools!) are well-maintained and clean, and the staff is very friendly and always ready to help. For goodness sake, there's a ukulele in the room! The only downside is that the bathroom doors neither lock nor close all the way. There's a half-inch gap between the wall and the door, which can be uncomfortable for sharing rooms. Other than the bathroom thing, it's a stellar place!

I love the location of this hotel, great for walking to so many things. Inside, it is a very unique guestroom, overall very comfortable and relaxing. The outdoor cafe serves great breakfast and lunch, and we had a great dinner in the dining room. The service was excellent all around, especially friendly, we thought!

This is RESTAURANT review for the restaurant onsite and my overall impressions regarding a visit while waiting for our table. The award-winning restaurant is a James Beard-award winning restaurant specializing in locally sourced ingredients. We had the most incredible, sweet shrimp dinner here anywhere. While waiting for our table, we walked around the small, walled garden which was pleasant enough. The restaurant is adjacent the pool, which was great for you watching swimmers, but I sat inside, not wanting swimmers to watch me dining!

My husband & I stayed here for a week in November 2017. We were looking for a quick break before the Christmas madness at home and The Modern was perfect. The hotel is small by Waikiki standards and perfectly located far enough away from the bustle of the centre of town but only a short walk away. Our room was a good size, clean & modern. There was no noise from the other rooms & once the balcony door was shut you could hardly hear the city noises. The staff was always friendly and I have to say that the ladies from housekeeping always had a smile & a warm
