Deftly combining sexy and sophisticated at every turn, The Modern Honolulu introduces cosmopolitan chic for leisure and business purists in Hawaii.

Every element here is original, authentic or custom-designed to enhance your experience. From the sculpture of broken-in-action surfboards behind the lobby desk, to the bar hidden behind a revolving bookcase and the blue glass tiles embellishing the Sunset Pool, the vibe at The Modern Honolulu is contemporary and sophisticated.

The hotel's design (which extends to each of the 353 guest rooms and suites) is a study in white, sleek minimalism that magnifies the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, Waikiki skyline and the hotel's lush grounds. Book a room with a private terrace and practice the art of outdoor relaxation in the privacy of your own accommodation.

The Modern Spa's exhilarating treatments are developed around the purest and most exclusive products in the world -- natural, organic, hand-crafted and sustainable.

The Modern Honolulu offers some of the city’s best gastronomic treats under the expert eye of Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto at Morimoto Waikiki.

Two stylish pools overlook the Pacific for daytime fun while a vibrant scene at the Addiction nightclub and The Study lobby bar offer evening rendezvous.

A Balanced View

Our first impressions of this hotel were not positive. The lobby check in counter was scratched and the area appeared barren and casually stark. The hallways on the guest room floors are dim & dark, despite recently applied white paint - was that the off odour that greeted us? The bed length seemed short and the pillow headboard looked a bit old & worn.

On the other hand, Morimoto is wonderful and provided a memorable meal. The hotel breakfast was complimentary and Very savory. The experience of breakfast in the courtyard under beautiful trees with glimpses of the ocean was worth the price of admission. A nice ocean walk is immediately accessible. The spacious shower and modern design of the bathroom were appealing.

Hawaiian Retreat

Enjoyed a 9 night stay at the Modern in Honolulu for a friends wedding, what a great spot to stay. Walking distance to everything, private pool setting, great food and fabulous service, wish I could have stayed longer.

A Really Modern Hotel !!

A Really Modern and Nice Hotel, We felt the friendly service from their kindly staff of front desk when we check-in, the view of room is good, but I think it should be better if we booked ocean front view. Nothing would be better that you watching the sunset in their hotel, it's really amazing!!

But everything has its drawback...
I didn't like the noisy crowd who gathered in lounge bar just near the lobby of hotel at night, it was not convenient to get in and out for room guest, but I can understand, maybe it's also a nice place for party on Friday night..

A convenient location at the gateway to Waikiki Beach: just two
minutes from world-class shopping at the Ala Moana Shopping Center; within walking distance of the silky, white sands of Waikiki Beach and the celebrated shopping area of Kalakaua Avenue. Other Honolulu attractions are just a taxi ride away, including Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head and the surfing haven of the North Shore.

The Modern Honolulu is located just 15 minutes by car from the Honolulu International Airport.
