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.

We stayed for 6 nights and over all had a good experience. Having said that there are clearly a few inconsistencies when reading other reviews. Upon check in we received neither cool towel or welcome drink but check in was fast and yes we were sent over to the concierge/timeshare sales man, who despite is explaining numerous times we didn’t want another hire car, dinner cruise or time share he still persisted which just became annoying and left a sour taste, if he is a sales man he needs to refine his technique and listen to his guests. Other than this the staff were good. The room was spacious and very clean, bed very nice and plenty of room to chill out. Shower could do with better pressure. We didn’t get a turn down or Cookie even once unlike other reviews. We are a few times for breakfast and snacks at the groove and it was all fine, not amazing but good enough. Drinks service by the pool was very friendly. Happy hours were confusing never was sure what was included but seemed very minimal. Drinks prices and food were quite high. There is a good coffee shop at the next hotel that does better coffee. The pool was small and as there is no shade at the adults pool we used the main pool, it’s quite small and was often loud and taken over by children, it was hard to speak and relax at times and often this would go on after dark which ruined the adult vibe slightly. The private beach is ridiculous it’s a sand pit and nothing more. The real beach is 3 minute walk but gets quite busy early on. The gym has the basics it’s ok but again gets crowded with more 6-7 people. Basically we were in the holiday mood so we were happy to go with the flow so this place was fine but if you want a boutique and high quality service experience this isn’t quite it. Also be prepared to walk to the centre of things as this is at the edge of the main strip. (A plus for us as a little quieter).

Beach view but facilities lacking

Out of the centre of activity but close to Aloa Moana Shopping Plaza. Shuttle Bus to centre of Honolulu closeby $2, but does not run on the advertised 10 minute interval, we waited anywhere up to 35 minutes for a bus. Lobby of Hotel very ordinary, not inviting, nor does it provide seating for guests. Room was okay, although not soundproof, returning partygoers were noisy. There was only a coffee pod machine and polystyrene cups, no milk or jug to boil water for tea or drinking. Very short walk to the beach and marina. Pool area relaxing.

Disappointing experience

We were excited to stay at the modern, the pictures looked amazing and it was our first trip to Hawaii. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, we thought we made the right decision to stay at the modern. The lobby was small but is modern and looked hip. But then the whole experience just goes down hill from there. We were greeted by an unfriendly guy at the checkin counter who mumbled his way through the check in with absolutely no smile. For some reason their machine didn't work at the front, he disappeared with my credit card and ID for a good 10 minutes to make photocopies. When he came back we learned that we will be charged $34 resort fee per night. I understand that many hotels at popular designations charge these fees. But $34 is excessive considering the hotel itself was already not cheap and the wifi was crap, it kept diaconnecting. Anyways, after the long, annoying and unfriendly checkin was complete. We asked if we could get a map of the area so we can explore the next day. Instead of handing us a map, We were sent to the "concierge". After a long day of travel we were already pretty tired, we just wanted to get the map and go to our room. But this is not the concierge guy had in mind. All he cared was "sell", "sell", and "sell". The next 10 minute was excruciating... the sleezy sales guy tried to sell us helicopter rides, car rentals, turtle watching tour oh and did I mention time share??? After a good 10 minutes of hard sale, we finally managed to escape by telling him we are tired we'll do our own research tomorrow... word of advice, do NOT stop by the concierge... anyways, the room itself was actually clean, nice and spacious. However, the whole experience dealing with staff members just left a sour taste... the guy who helped us check out was actually nice and had a smile on his face. We were told that the bellboy would bring our luggages. we waited for a good 10 minutes for our luggages... the bellboys never brought out our stuff. When we went to check where our luggage was, apparently it got missed they never went to get it... the room I would give it a 4, but for service the modern deserves a 0.

Trendy!

The Modern is a great hotel well located in Honolulu. If you are getting an airport transfer this is one of the first stops on the route. The reception area is welcoming and we were checked in quickly and our bags were taken off our hands by a friendly porter. Our room was on the 6th floor (room 633) and had decent views down to Waikiki. The room was large and we had 2 double beds with large wardrobe space and a safe. The bathroom was large and there were some cool slatted window blinds that had to be shut if you wanted some privacy in the bathroom. There was very good free Wi-Fi in the room and throughout the hotel. There was a lot going on in the hotel. The 2nd floor has a gym, shop, spa and 2 pools, one is an adult only pool. There is a restaurant around the pool terrace that serves good food through the day and there is a pool bar serving drinks. There are a good number of sun loungers along with VIP beds that are larger, a little more comfortable and offer a little more shade. The staff will bring food & drinks to your sun longer so you can stay relaxing around the pool all day. In the reception area there is an area named ‘the library’. You could miss this area or be forgiven if you don’t know it is there. The area is closed off with a large book case that swings open/shut to reveal the area, almost like a secrete room. There is also a nightclub, my wife and I did not get to check this out. If you have hired a car parking is expensive, they wanted $35 for valet parking. Right across the road there is a safe public parking area that charges $1 an hour.

Going back !

What a surprise ... exactly the type of hotel and position we crave ! Modern (no pun intended) ... clean, laid back, but a little edgy. Looks cool, and smells better !! Absolutely loved the hotel and location,the staff were young but professional, efficient and very friendly, so now we have to go back soon... especially as they have even done some renos ! I rate this place 10 out of 10.
