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.
"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 rooms are an exquisite example of modern minimalism."
“…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) is a speak-easy inspired bar. It's fun, classy and a bit retro."
“Each night, they had someone playing a guitar and singing ... in the Study.”
“…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.”
“It’s set up in the lobby from 6 - 10 a.m.”
“Besides President Obama eating at Morimoto’s (twice on his last trip) I also spotted Reese Witherspoon at a table near us.”
“You have to love a hotel that has two pools…”
“Everyone I met seemed generally happy to work there and had a smile on their face.”
