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.

Great location! Big room with modern design and great amenities. Very friendly staff.

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.
