Nice facility with very bright, clean and inviting room. However the lobby could use some work and updating but not terrible.

The hotel itself is quite lovely. Wasn’t too keen on the night club entrance being beside the main entrance. Felt like I was in Vegas. Just wasn’t my thing. The rooms are very basic but clean. The partial ocean view was nice with the marina across the street. The staff were very kind and helpful. And the shortbread cookies with the turn down service were a nice treat. I also liked that the hotel was off the busy part of Waikiki. It was a nice break. And there’s an ABC store across the street open till midnight.

Hotel was amazing. So many options for entertainment. Loved the pool and food. Will plan on staying there again.

Nice hotel, staff very friendly, hotel room clean. We held an event in the ballrooms and everything went very smooth. The service was impeccable. Domonique was amazing and Yuki tended bar for us. She did an amazing job as well!

All staff put us first. The onlything I would change the pool to an adult pool and no kids and also, put microwaves in rooms.

Less touristy and fewer kids. Pool vibe is more refined than the resorts

We stayed at the Modern when Oahu was waiting for Hurricane Lane. The staff was amazing to the guests during this time, bring cheer and aloha to everyone during a tense period. They were kind and helpful to all the guests and I feel grateful they were there to keep all the operations going and the food and drink was plentiful. I was with my family for a combination work and holiday and the hotel was perfect for that. Lots of kids but not rambunctious like a larger hotel such as the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The rooms were nice, modern and the aircon fantastic. The only small sour note was the concierge who tried to sell us a vacation package immediately when we arrived and really hard selled us. This did not happen before when I have come to the Modern and I can only surmise that this is the new Diamonds chain at work. Make this a good experience and people will want to try it. But a hard sell is never good. We did not even have a chance to get into our room.

Loved my stay at the Modern! It is small and intimate, which is part of the appeal. Only real complaint is that it is valet parking only (but that's a LOT of Waikiki). Will definitely stay again!

Very nice hotel for a good price. The adult only pool is awesome. A bit hectic at check in with no rooms available earlier than 3pm. Nice location for shopping and dining.

Very enjoined to stay in this hotel for the family vacation.

The location and staff were great. Hotel has a great vibe.

Great room and amenities! Slept great! Really nice pool area and flexible towel borrowing policy made it easy for us to lay on the beach. Consider increasing the size of the shower/tub space.

cool relaxing atmosphere. In walking distance to everything great.

Staff very good in all areas. Breakfast by the pool very good and relaxing.

Nice place, good location, clean rooms, friendly staff, nice pool- but small, and the valet service could be improved.

Clean environment, friendly staff, and close to many amenities. I enjoyed the experience and would stay here again.

Awesome hotel from the room to view staff restaurant food was so good a hotel must have to experience

Customer service was great, room was beautiful and the overall experience at the hotel was awesome!

Came here to get away from it all and everything was great. It's near everything you want in Waikiki, but a little off the main drag so not super touristy. Improvements: I wish the pool bar closed later at night because The Study on weekends is not somewhere you want to be if you're not 22 and wasted. There should be somewhere chill where you can drink. The beds are not very comfortable, and there could be subtle upgrades to take care of the wear and tear of hotel guests: replacing chipped tiles, replacing stained lampshades. But overall, everything is great. I'd definitely come back.

So first trip to Hawaii so did lot research seem to be located in good area good reviews very clean and nice staff friendly but we had called months in advanced about should we book our tours before got there was told that "oh no you be fine nothing ever gets booked" sure enough tour wanted do which we specifically asked about was booked out for next 2 weeks also after are room was cleaned we came back changed before dinner came back to find my GoPro charge cord my iPhone charger and some of our clothes missing. Don't think ever be coming back other than that was ok
