My stay at The Modern was one of the most wonderful

My stay at The Modern was one of the most wonderful hotel stays I have had. I have stayed at over 100 hotels in my travels and I must stay The Modern is in my top 3. The Modern is a boutique hotel which I usually avoid because we have young children which are usually not well tolerated by boutique hotels or their guests.

DIVINE chic hotel!

Absolutely LOVED our five nights at the Modern Hotel and did not want to leave! Fantastic location at the start of Waikiki Beach, angerously close to the Ala Moana Shopping Centre and an easy walk to the buzz of Waikiki (shops, restaurants etc) but also nice not to be in the heart of it all as very relaxing.

What a great getaway!

I wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for this beautiful boutique hotel in Waikiki. Because of the demanding schedule of working in the entertainment industry in Hollywood, I don't get many opportunities to travel for leisure. On my last ten-day break from filming, I was able to take four nights and head back out to Hawaii with my boyfriend to visit the Modern Honolulu for my third visit this year. This hotel really rocks. I hate to sound a bit snobby, but it seems like the only updated and modern hotel on the island.

Contemporary, outstanding, modern hotel

I recently stayed at this hotel with my Mother for six nights and we both found it to be friendly, the staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. On arrival, we were given a small drink and a towel to freshen up. Our room overlooked the front of the hotel with a slight view of the Marina. The room was modern, minimalistic, clean and had all the facilities one would require.
