The Modern Honolulu is Waikiki's newest luxury hotel, located just steps from one of Hawaii's most famous beaches. Offering a glamorous yet understated take on the lifestyle hotel experience, it's posh without being pretentious, chic without being overdone, luxurious, yet brilliantly laid back.

The Modern Honolulu luxury hotel offers 353 stylish guestrooms, highlighting the glittering city skyline, moored yachts in the harbor, and spectacular ocean views. Many feature a private terrace where you can enjoy breakfast in your plush robe or play with an iPad borrowed from the hotel. If you would rather dine out, the Waikiki resort features exquisite culinary pursuits, including the celebrated Morimoto Waikiki. After dining, take a dip in the Sunrise Pool while indulging in a signature cocktail or bask under towering palms at the Sunset Pool. Round out the day with a pampering treatment at the hotel's revitalizing spa.

The 24 hour business center and proximity to the Hawaii Convention Center also make The Modern an ideal choice for business travelers.

Great birthday.

After checking out if my 1st hotel and arriving at the modern I felt like this is what I was expecting at the 1st ( I checked into the 1st took a shower and checked out) the staff was amazing from the time we got to vallet. Very attentive to your needs. The room was great. They gave great recombinations for what I asked for. Concierge remembered when my bday was. Going down by the pool the staff was there for everything you needed. I would come back from a long day ice would be in the room with bottles of water waiting. They tried to figure out what you needed before you even needed it. I would stay here again and recommend that other people stay here. And I tend to stay at a le meridian and hotels like that when i travel and this place was amazing.

very relaxing experience

Everything about this hotel is amazing, despite the noise volume from the street traffic below. there are even speakers in the pool, so when you are swimming under water, you can hear music. Very soothing and relaxing stay here.

Not your average Honolulu/Waikiki resort

We had a great time at this hotel. If you prefer smaller more intimate, boutique like hotels compared to humongous resorts with tons of people and shops and tourists walking around the lobby then you should consider this place. It is a walk from all the major hotels along the beach but that's another reason why we enjoyed it so much. There are also two pools. one for adults which is not really a pool more of a wading pool and an everyone pool where most everyone stays. Although we prefer not to be around children, the everyone pool was were the action was (not that there was much, but more so) and you could actually take a real dip, so that is were many hours reading and sun bathing were spent. The staff everywhere was great and super attentive. The nightly turn down service where they bring two bottles of water was also a nice touch. Also- Morimoto's restaurant is in the hotel and we were there 3 times over the course of our 5 day stay. The food was amazing and it was great to finally go to one of his restaurants. True it was expensivebut we are from NYC and have been to Hawaii before so were prepared for the prices.

Business getaway

Hotel was very nice. I had work daily on the north shore and The Modern Honolulu was an easy in and out each day. Close enough to all the action of shopping and the beach but just on the edge so I was not bottled up with the traffic down near the other hotels. Relaxing by the outstanding pool was a plus. Great pool, great service.
