4/5 Good

Pros: - good location / proximity to airport / stores / shopping - friendly staff / good valet service - clean / fantastic shower / decent view (room dependant) Cons: - valet is costly ($35 USD/day) / cheaper parking across the street - our experience with one of the concierge staff was horrible, as in, she was wrong about 99% of what she told us about Oahu and tried to sell us on taking a 2 hour meeting for some time share crap for discounts on crap we didn't want to do Would I stay here again? After exploring Oahu from North to South, no, I would not stay here again. Basically, we just ended up spending a ton of $$$ for a hotel with a great shower. If, however, the price was right, sure - I'd stay here again and rent a car like we did on this trip.

4/5 Good

The Modern is a lovely hotel. Location is fabulous, perfect distance to beach, lagoon, marina, shopping without being on the main strip. Main pool is great - adult pool was being refurbished. Probably the only part of the hotel I didn't rate was the Concierge desk. It's main objective is to sign you up for tours/presentations for time share. Best to research, book your own, or go to one of the other concierge desks nearby.

Stayed 6 nights in Nov 2019

5/5 Excellent

The staff was very friendly and efficient. There was a section where they had people ready to give you a timeshare presentation but I kindly walked past them to get to the elevator. The room was clean and although the bed is pretty low, it’s comfy. Slept like a baby. My boyfriend and I stayed in the king size city view room. Not much of a city view, too much view of the hotel across the street but if you look to the left you can see the marina. We was close and lucky enough to where we still had a nice view of the sunset. Would stay here again.

Stayed 5 nights in Nov 2019

4/5 Good

Its a good 4 star hotel nice and clean with a fantastic pool. Its missing alot of the luxuries such as room service and the beds and pillows are not the best. You can physically feel and see where they are trying to save money. Overall its still a nice place. I def would NOT pay more than 230Aud a night. Reason i say this was the weekend price for one of the nights i wanted to stay was 800! So i stayed at Prince Waikiki.. highly recommended

Stayed 5 nights in Nov 2019
