Hotel Overview

The Modern Honolulu is Hawaii's newest Luxury Lifestyle Hotel. Nestled Marina front in the Gateway of Waikiki, this luxury hotel offers a multitude of innovative features and services all under one roof. Appealing to business and leisure travelers, the hotel features expansive accommodations, gourmet dining, sprawling event space, soothing spa services, and more.


The Modern Honolulu houses 353 deluxe guestrooms and suites decorated in natural, earthy tones of contrasting dark woods with clean white linens and furnishings. Creating a splash of color, every room brings a little bit of island fun inside, offering guests colorful sarongs to wear during their stay, a traditional ukulele, tropical artwork and other inspiring items. Oversized windows bathe rooms in natural light while plantation shutters provide the ultimate privacy. Distinctive design elements create a soothing sense of organic luxury without compromising a "home away from home" ambiance.

Most of the hotel rooms in Waikiki feature private, furnished terraces where guests can look out over the luminous city of Waikiki or the expansive Pacific Ocean beyond rows of moored yachts in the Yacht Harbor. From custom beds with down comforters and pillows and 46" LCD TVs to Terrazzo counter tops and large glass enclosed showers, the features in The Modern Honolulu's accommodations create a fully serviced retreat experience.


Eat in inspired settings at The Modern Honolulu, home to Morimoto Waikiki and a number of bars that offer light fare and stunning cocktails. From Crab Louie at the bar at Sunrise Pool to Tuna Pizza under coral light fixtures at Morimoto, the dishes offered at these exquisite Waikiki restaurants represent innovative renditions on classics for a Honolulu fine dining experience unlike any other.

Morimoto Waikiki was conceived by world-renowned Chef Masaharu Morimoto - known to millions for his seamless integration of Western and Japanese ingredients as a star of Iron Chef and Iron Chef America. Dine in a breathtaking space designed by Thomas Schoos overlooking the Honolulu waterfront and the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor with an open kitchen as the restaurant's focal point and a fresh sushi bar offering appetizing selections of sushi.

The Modern Honolulu also offers three bars. The bar at Sunrise Pool is an enclave that sits under a canopy of lush Bouganvilla and boasts lime green picnic tables with views of the harbor. The bar at Sunset Pool is an exclusive, exotic hub made for sipping and lounging in privacy by the lagoon. If you are in the lobby at 4pm, you can witness the lobby bar come to life as a bookshelf rotates and gives way to art-infused alcoves created for socializing.


Enjoy a refreshing escape from reality at a calming spa in Waikiki. Located close to the Sunrise Pool, the Spa at The Modern Honolulu offers a full range of services in four relaxing treatment rooms, four manicure/pedicure stations and a full range of spa services, including pampering packages. Spa guests have access to locker rooms with soothing showers and complimentary bath amenities, beautiful stone sinks and a natural palate with neutral surroundings for ultimate peace. Relish in a lavish yet healing Waikiki spa resort experience at The Modern.


An enviable corporate headquarters in the heart of Honolulu, The Modern Honolulu offers the perfect destination for Waikiki business travelers. Equipped with professional meeting spaces, expansive Waikiki suites, a fully equipped business center, catering services and premier amenities such as complimentary wireless Internet access, the Modern Honolulu is a stylish platform for Honolulu meetings and grand events.
