A MODERN Approach to Smart Sustainability

At THE MODERN HONOLULU, we're more than environmentally conscious, we're environmentally-driven.

Sustainability is woven through our hotel, it's a way of life.

Design and Development

  • Our hotel features open spaces with natural light throughout, including guest rooms, meeting spaces, and public areas.
  • A paperless check-in and check-out system reduces paper waste.
  • Eco-friendly cleaning products are used by our housekeeping and maintenance teams.
  • LED lighting is used throughout the hotel.
  • The Sustainables, our green team, includes managers, directors, and front-line staff throughout the hotel who have a passion for creating a more sustainable hotel and meeting experience.

Guest Rooms and Meeting Spaces

  • SMART Room Technology activates a guest room air conditioner only after the guest checks in and automatically turns off when balcony doors are open.
  • A decentralized cooling system allows air conditioning to be limited to meeting rooms in use.
  • A clutter-free meeting reduces the use of paper in meeting planning, utilizing digital tools and resources to conserve resources.
  • Single sort recycling is available in all guest and meeting rooms.

Dining

  • Our farm-to-table food and beverage practices focus on local, organic and seasonal produce and meats.
  • All cooking oil is recycled.
  • Excess food waste is donated to a local pig farm.
  • All plastic beverage straws have been eliminated and paper straws are available upon request.

Spa

  • LATHER Spa products feature pure essential oils, vitamins and antioxidants and never use synthetic fragrances, colors, parabens or sulfate cleansing agents.
  • LATHER shopping bags are composed of 100% post-consumer recycled materials.
  • LATHER maintains a commitment to cruelty-free beauty and does not test products on animals or work with labs that do.
