U.S. News Review

Located within walking distance of the Ala Moana Center shopping mecca and the powdery sands of Waikiki Beach, The Modern Honolulu combines style and swank with the surfer vibe that many visitors expect from Hawaii's capital. The boutique hotel's 353 guest rooms include 46-inch TVs and glass-encased showers, plus a few sarongs and a ukulele for guests to use to get into the Aloha spirit. However, because of its urban locale, some guests complain of street noise, and recommend staying on one of the higher floors. Aside from the noise, travelers say their stays here couldn't have been better, attributing their experiences to the hotel's excellent customer service and wealth of amenities. Guests can lounge by two pools — Sunrise is for everyone, and Sunset is adults-only — or indulge in Japanese fusion fare served at The Modern's on-site restaurant, Morimoto Waikiki (headed by Chef Masaharu Morimoto of "Iron Chef America" fame).
