The rooms were great and the quality and cleanliness of the rooms were also great. The customer service was disappointing throughout our stay and assistance when our flights were delayed for us to be able to stay longer, they weren’t very accommodating, we’re told to check in the morning for late check out so we did and then were told there is no room so we had to find an alternative. Around the pool area upstairs was good apart from the service form the bar staff again, rude and not very helpful, and tidying up of dirty dishes and cups was non existent after people had moved from the area. Over priced for the quality of service and especially having to it resort fees that aren’t even that good

Quiet location on the fringe of the hustle & bustle, with just a short walk to all the action & shopping. Perfect for us to escape at the end of the day. Staff, room, pool were all great. View of the sunset behind the boats in the harbour just stunning. Have now already booked 1 more night here on our way back through Honolulu next week.

Stylish hotel located away from the hustle of Waikiki but still within walking distance of shopping at Ala Moana and various restaurants and bars. We LOVED lounging by the pool and the food from the on-site restaurant. We walked through a few other hotels nearby out of curiosity and would definitely return to The Modern next time we’re in Honolulu :)

Great pool area, hardly any kids and if there were kids they were asked by pool staff to keep quiet! Awesome work! Loved the modern rooms and the clean style. Didnt like when the concierge try to con us into one of those waste of time resort seminars instead of book activities for us but that was only one staff member; the rest were awesome!
