The Modern Honolulu was such a great experience. We had an ocean view which was so perfect. Beautiful, clean rooms with a comfortable bed. Restaurant was yummy, service was excellent. The lounge chairs by the pools were nice. Loved the adult-only pool as well where the lounge chairs sat in the shallow water. Loved the Spa. It was a great vacation and The Modern Honolulu played a huge role in that.

The staff are lovely.The location was good. Its walking distance to Ala Moana and the Hilton Hawaiian Village.The second pool is closed for renovation, so only the family pool is available.The grove restaurant is overpriced for what you get.

Treat the workers better!
Diamond Resorts needs to stop laying off its staff. I asked for house cleaning and it never happened because they were short-staffed. Workers who were laid off right before the holiday season had a protest there while I stayed there. Diamond Resorts needs to give contracts to its workers at the Modern Honolulu and treat them fairly.
