Step into The Modern Honolulu and you'll immediately sense: This isn't Waikiki as you know it. It's not the palette you expect; nor the architectural lines. No stock furnishings or assembly-line art in sight. Every element - from what you see to the essence of Aloha that you feel - is original; authentic or custom-designed to enhance the experience that is The Modern Honolulu.

The signature restaurant is RAVISH. RAVISH at THE MODERN HONOLULU immerses the diner on a path of pleasure for all senses. Imaginative dishes strong on flavors served with classic culinary artistry. RAVISH blends Pacific Asian flavors and South American tastes creating a true Pacific Rim culinary experience. The menu features farm-to-table inspired dishes with a focus on Hawaiian seasonal ingredients. The open kitchen design flows into the dining room. Floor to ceiling glass windows feature panoramic ocean views from inside the restaurant or from the outside dining area.

At 6 pm each evening, a wall of books rotates to reveal a lobby bar that's anything but a lobby bar: The Study, a den of melt-into-me seating where cocktail tables are never more than an arm's length away and the drinks are legendary. Local, original musicians provide nightly sounds and Reverse Happy Hour (10 pm to 2 am) promises specials on featured beers, wines, and bottles. Ice Cream Sundays (10 pm to 2 am every Sunday night) spin you into a trance induced by DJs and frozen indulgences.

Thursday through Saturday, Addiction Nightclub channels South Beach, L.A., or Vegas in a way only Waikiki can. Beyond the velvet rope, the-most-buzzed-about DJs drop in to guest-spin and celebs come through to celebrate. This is the A-list guest list among Waikiki nightlife where you can dance beneath 40,000 lights or request a VIP table to drink in the scene. Experience Addiction Beachclub on Sunday afternoons when the Sunset Pool brings addictive energy to Honolulu's hottest poolside.

A leading choice among Honolulu hotels in Waikiki, The Modern Honolulu redefines the glamour that is characteristic of Waikiki for a new and cultured audience. Your impression of The Modern Honolulu will be unforgettable, uncommon - just like you. Make the most of every moment at The Modern Honolulu, a AAA Four Diamond resort, redefining the standard for Waikiki luxury hotels.

Returning to The Modern Honolulu again
NoelleOaxaca, Tiburon, California
Thu Jul 19 15:35:00 EDT 2018
We're returning again this year to The Modern Honolulu, based on the wonderful stay that we had with our TransPacific (TransPac) Race crew stay in July - August 2017. You get a sense of how fun & quirky (in a good way) the hotel is, when you check-in and see the surfing decor in the lobby. The pool is wonderful -- do splurge on a shaded daybed/pool cabana. We had a large group and this ended up being a fun, central meeting/ check-in location during the day. Our boat is a Santa Cruz 50 sloop-rigged sailboat, with a racing crew of 10. With family & friends, we had 13 rooms (24 people) at The Modern for about 10 - 12 days each. Staff went out of their way to accommodate us and we had a marvelous time. Of particular note were: Blair Bird, Sales Dept,, who negotiated a great room contract for us. Veronica, Concierge, who set up a surprise birthday party for 30 people, on less than 24 hours notice, at a wonderful restaurant within walking distance of the hotel. Jensen, In-Room Dining, who delighted our teenaged boys with their HUGE room service breakfast deliveries each day. (The boys then had 'second breakfast' at the pool afterwards). Robbie, Night Manager, who ensured a nice recovery on a room error. One of our guest couples had problems with their room, which took a couple of days to fix. We understand that problems occur from time to time. The Modern fixed the problem & then showered the affected couple with amenities to make up for any distress. Nicely done. Bartenders at main & sunset pools; We all loved The Modern's 'Deconstructed Mai Tai.' It has, shockingly, replaced Halekulani's mai tai as our favorite mai tai in Honolulu. We had 2 ocean-front suites (great rooms with lots of space, balconies, views) and after the 1st weekend, all of our guests had been upgraded to ocean-front rooms. We're returning this weekend, for another week's stay; this time we'll have only 3 rooms, as it's a family vacation. Our boat is entered in the 2019 TransPac Race and we look forward to treating our crew to another stay at The Modern then too.

A wonderful spot where Ala Moana meets Waikiki

Stayed six nights and had a consistently great experience over my stay. Housekeeping did a great job keeping the room in top condition. The fitness room was nicer than many you’ll find in other hotels if this size (though if you do cross training, you may be short on space to move around). We were always able to find a spot at the pool. The restaurant and bar are pretty expensive, but there are much more affordable portions nearby (The Ilikai, McDonald’s, Tropics Ale House — next to McDonald’s and below Buffalo Wild Wings... not the Tropics in the Hilton Hawaiian Village). Staff were always helpful and friendly. Will definitely consider them for future trips.

I LOVED IT

I enjoyed my stay. Loved the room, the pool and the food menu. It was not too expensive either. It is with in walking distance from lots of stores and restaurants. The beach is close to it. I recommend this hotel.

Undecided?

Hotel was nice but it wasn't up to par to our expectations. I expected more of a luxurious experience in our hotel room and I didn't completely get the Modern concept. We had a partial view of a sea dock/bay area which wasn't a lot of the view. There are shutters that separate the room from the bathroom and you can open them from the outside and completely see the inside! It was a little strange. The staff were really nice but they didn't have their information consistent with each other. we were told we had a $50 credit and if we didnt use it it would be given back to us. But however that's not the case. So use the credit!! Luckily, we last minute decided to use it on a two person breakfast (which ended up being $45!!!!) the last day we were there. However, I LOVED the morning yoga that I did 2x's the week I was there. It provided great stretching after the plane ride there. The pool and bar area are great and beautiful. Especially at night time, you can just sit by the bar under the beautiful lights and chill. I'd say this hotel is good for people who have a big budget and who've been to hawaii and have done the tourist stuff already--the hotel is too far to walk to the busy tourist-y area of waikiki.

Hum, The Modern......

We arrived about 1:00 p.m. and our room was ready; that was nice after traveling for 9 hours. We were not bothered once about a timeshare presentation which I was super happy about. The hotel itself is nice. I have no complaints about that. All food and drinks we ordered was fresh and good. It is Hawaii, so a budget goes out the door, so we chose to pay cash for everything ordered so no complaints with surprise charges. As far as our room, what we didn’t like was the noise from the traffic, even on the 16th floor we could hear it clearly. Also, when our air kicked on, it made a loud weird noise, not to mention it blew directly over our heads. Yes the beds are low, but we didn’t have a problem with it. The mattress was a little hard for my liking, and yes that thin blanket is annoying. However, the room was adequate and cleaned daily. Everyone we encountered was helpful, and no we are not Asian as some have stated they cater only to them. What did bother us about the hotel was the lack of activities or even music playing around the pools and hotel during the day. The adults only pool was like an silent zone. I guess they think people only want to hear music or enjoy themselves at night in their clubs. It just made it really boring around the hotel during the day. We had to venture out to find some kind of entertainment. We ended up walking by the Sheraton and absolutely loved the vibe there; laid back yet hip and entertaining. Although our stay was fine, we wouldn’t return.
