TRAVEL BLOGGER JOHNNY JET GIVING AWAY TRIP TO THE MODERN HONOLULU AND SHARES HIS TOP 10 REASONS TO VISIT

Recently, international travel blogger Johnny Jet visited THE MODERN HONOLULU and shared the favorite parts of his stay. Jet wrote he "fell in love with the place the moment i walked through my room door."

Johnny enjoyed his Modern experience so much he developed a Top 10 list of things that make a stop at THE MODERN HONOLULU a must for anyone visiting Oahu and we thought it only appropriate to share.

Johnny Jet Travel Insider, The Modern Honolulu
  • Waikiki resort hotel, Modern Honolulu on Ala Moana

    1. LOCATION

    "The hotel is on the outskirts of Waikiki and that's not a bad thing. It's just far enough away (about a 25-minute walk) from Waikiki's center and its crowded beaches but only a 90-second walk down a sidewalk until your toes are in the sand."

  • The Modern Honolulu hotel and suites

    2. THE ROOMS

    "The rooms are an exquisite example of modern minimalism."

  • Hawaiian artist Herbie Fletcher's Wrecktangle

    3. ARTWORK

    “…one piece of art that shouldn’t be overlooked is the art installation above the check-in desk. It’s a collage of broken surfboards that comes together to create a unique focal point in the lobby.”

  • The Study Bar in Honolulu, bars in Waikiki

    4. THE STUDY BAR

    "... (The Study) is a speak-easy inspired bar. It's fun, classy and a bit retro."

  • Live music and entertainment in Honolulu, Honolulu nightclub

    5. LIVE MUSIC

    “Each night, they had someone playing a guitar and singing. The musicians can be found either in the Study or out by the pool bar.”

  • restaurants in Waikiki, places to eat in Honolulu

    6. FOOD

    “…the hotel is home to Morimoto Waikiki. That’s Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s restaurant where he creates divine dishes featuring a Hawaiian/Japanese flair. Make a reservation for a table outside just like President Obama did two nights before we dined there.”

  • Hawaiian Islands coffee served daily at The Modern Honolulu

    7. FREE COFFEE + TEA STATION

    “It’s set up in the lobby from 6 - 10 a.m.”

  • President Barack Obama at Morimoto Waikiki

    8. THE STARS STAY HERE

    “Besides President Obama eating at Morimoto’s (twice on his last trip) I also spotted Reese Witherspoon at a table near us.”

  • The Modern Honolulu was recently voted in Top 10 Best Resort Swimming Pools by USA Today

    9. POOLS

    “You have to love a hotel that has two pools…

  • The Modern Honolulu welcomes you to your Waikiki vacation

    10. SERVICE

    “Everyone I met seemed generally happy to work there and had a smile on their face.”
