Like many others, I was repelled by the aggressive timeshare sales pitch cloaked in a saccharine phone call to your room inviting you to come to concierge desk for “your gift.” Ha. My overpriced “view” room overlooked ‘closed pool as sad puddle’ with peeling paint encircled by yellow plastic “stay away” tape like police use for crime sites (see photo). As others found, the Keurig coffeemaker in room is not replenished daily with supplies. That’s on you, bro. Restroom at pool level (the pool that was still functioning) was “out of order.” Checkout time is an aggressive 10am (!) but even then housekeeping knocks on your door a few minutes early to roust you out. Resort fee tacked on is for amenities that amount to next to nothing. The stampede to exit at 10am checkout resulting in clogged elevators did NOT prevent a Modern employee (looked like management level) from cramming himself onboard our car instead of saying he’d take the next one when he saw ours was stuffed to the gills. I guess this place was nice awhile ago when it still had a notable restaurant and different ownership but now... buyer beware.

Great location, not great service

Adelaide, Australia

Great location, was easy walking to place getting on and off busses etc. Close to the beach. Was annoying they only offered people discounts to anything you wanted to so if you sat in a conference where theyd try and sell you shares!! Staff on the first day where great but other than that not great service.

Become addicted to The Modern's stunning new nightclub, Addiction. With a dazzling ceiling of over 40,000 lights and a sophisticated vibe that embodies the unmistakable mood of the hotel, this fashionable nightclub is the top spot for partying in style in Honolulu.

Sunrise Pool

Set in intimate paradise gardens, this popular pool is a super-stylish option for those looking to work on their tan or cool off in the water. Set close to the ocean, the pool bar and tantalising on-site restaurants, the Sunrise Pool is the place to go when the sun shows its face. And for those looking for even more from a pool, there are luxurious daybeds for hire to help you truly relax in your island oasis.

Sunset Pool

Sunset Pool

Its an adults only oasis at the Sunset Pool. Perched two floors above the Sunrise Pool, this stylish pool area combines 100 tons of sand and a glittering cobalt-glass tiled pool to create the perfect pool scale for your stay. Relax on a luxury lounger, admire the serene gardens and refreshing breezes that drift over from the ocean and maybe sip a cocktail from the bar when the sun sets and the beautiful candle lights underfoot light your way.

The Spa

The trademark white palette sets the tone of sophisticated relaxation at this world-class spa set in the heart of The Modern Honolulu. Explore a world of immersion, with coconut, lemongrass, lemongrass and vanilla scenting the air and start your journey with a drink offered by the receptionist. The peach green tea is particularly popular. Then settle into one of the treatment rooms and discover a world of indulgence and serenity. From tailored massages to trend-setting beauty treatments, this is a spa at the top of its game.


Enjoy yoga with a twist by the beach-style setting of the resort's Sunset Pool. As the sun starts its long climb into the sky, you and your fellow guests will already be outdoors, soaking up the early-morning warmth and channeling your inner chi. Admire the way the light bounces off the cobalt-glass pool, luxuriate in the 100 tons of sand laid for your comfort and experience the best yoga session you could want.
