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.

- Our farm-to-table food and beverage practices focus on local, organic and seasonal produce and meats.
- All cooking oil is recycled.
