The Modern Honolulu by Diamond Resorts

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location is ideal and the style of the interior design and exterior spaces are super cool.

I would highly recommend staying here. My stay was extremely pleasant. The staff are so kind and go above and beyond to accommodate you. Our room was beautiful! We will be choosing the modern Honolulu for all our future visits.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating! Very clean resort.

The property overall is in need of a refresh. I found the low lighting in the hallways to be strange.

We had parking lot view but can see the marina from the balcony. It was a small street but very noisy. Good sliding glass doors make the rooms not as noisy when closed though. We couldn’t relax by the pool because of construction noise at the Ilikai next door, very loud when sitting at the shallow pool. The shower water pressure was great. Shampoo etc were also great. The cafe menu was limited so we didn’t eat at the Grove. At night there was a bar with live music opening up behind a rotating bookcase called the Study, we went there for a bit. Overall we paid for the rooms then 30 extra per day per room for amenities but couldn’t really enjoy any of that. We constantly had to Uber to places like Ala Moana mall or down toward the Sheraton area to get food so it was a bit difficult for us. The little tide pool area was ok but there was a strong smell to it and hotel staff told us not to bathe there due to it being dirty so we had to walk down to Waikiki beach to swim. Overall it was a cute boutique hotel but for the price we would rather be at a different location.

Loved the aesthetic of the Hotel - the gym was clean and nice. Food was great, ambiance was great.

I arrived and it took me a while to find the property as I was driving to the hotel. It was hard to find at first, but I found it. The staff was nice, but I didn't like having to talk to the concierge about offering a "discount" if we wanted to attend a "vacation meeting" in the morning. Other than that, it was a nice stay at the hotel. I don't have any other complaints.

I did not like the fact that they tried to sell us TimeShare while we are vacationing. One of the sales people went as far as to track us in the pool and still try to sell. Front desk people, although, very nice they are not very knowledgeable about availability of rooms. Over all a good 4 star hotel, with modern look

Nice hotel, 20 minutes from airport. Small, fast and easy check in. 5 minute walk to the beach. Hotel has pool/beach towels that are light, good size. Always cold water is available by the pool towel stand, along with sunscreen. Housekeeping is great. Rooms are nice, clean with all amenities. Bottled water in the room. Grove restaurant is yummy, good service but watch out for those birds. More younger crowd feel, a bar , nightclub which is complementary for guests. All the staff were really nice, always felt welcomed. Hotel is in great area, only 7 minutes away from Waikiki. And a 6 minutes walk to Alamoana shopping center.

It was a nice hotel filled with young people and friendly staff. My only wish was that the hotel was on the beach rather than walking 10-15 mins to get to the beach.

Please avoid staying at this hotel during weekend. There is a nightclub in the building, but the noise level is terrible. Worst ever. I stayed on 4th floor, but from 10PM till 3AM you literally feel bass sound and even teembling! Entire room and even my bed(!) vibrated. I complained about it three times, but no apology. They say that there is an explanation about the noise level in their website but I couldn’t find any information. I tried to make a last complaint while I was checking out but a receptionist just said “Do you want to talk to our manager?” without any apology. Yeah, it’s a “boutique” hotel and the place is supposed to be chic and cool, but if you hear DJing sound and feel the bass on your bed at 2:30AM that is seriously wrong. Period.

clean room, nice room. parking is a bit pricey. front desk employees not as informative.
