The Modern Honolulu, 100% Smoke-Free

Ala Wai Yacht Harbor Location

The Modern Honolulu, a member of the Aqua Hotels group, is a 100% smoke-free property with city, swimming pool, ocean, and Ala Wai Yacht Harbor views from its 353 guestrooms and suites. Conveniently situated at the gateway to Waikiki Beach, the hotel is near Ala Moana Shopping Center, the largest shopping center in the state. Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial, and the North Shore surfing beaches are a taxi ride away.

Two Swimming Pools, On-Site Spa Services, Nearby Sports Activities

The Modern Honolulu has two swimming pools. Guests enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean on one side of Sunrise Pool and a Waikiki cityscape on another. Evenings see local musicians entertaining guests as they sip their tropical Hawaiian drinks. Sunset Pool, one flight of stairs up from Sunrise Pool, is for adults only.

The on-site hotel spa offers aromatherapy treatments, body treatments, oxygen facials, and traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage in addition to nail and waxing services. In-room massage services are also available.

The hotel features two restaurants. Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is the Executive Chef of the Morimoto Waikiki. The restaurant serves Japanese and Western food, seafood from Hawaiian and Japanese waters, and locally grown vegetables and fruit. Executive Chef Scott Toner’s Passageway and the Grove serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Water sports available nearby include boogie boarding, kayaking, rafting, sailing, surfing, water skiing, and windsurfing. On dry land, try golfing, hiking, mountain biking, and moped and scooter rentals.

Rooms, Suites, or Penthouse

The Modern Honolulu’s guestrooms, primarily white with teak accents, feature pillowtop mattresses and premium bedding, including Frette sheets imported from Italy. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and high-speed wired Internet access, 46-inch flat screen televisions with full cable access, bathrobes and slippers, and twice daily housekeeping. A video game system, DVD library, and hot tea kettle and Keurig coffee maker are available upon request. Guests have their choice of rooms, studio or one-bedroom suites, or a penthouse with 1400 square feet of interior space and a 1500-square-foot landscaped terrace.

The Bottom Line

The Modern Honolulu, 100% smoke-free and dog-friendly, is a quiet boutique hotel near the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor. The hotel has two swimming pools. Children are not permitted in the Sunset Pool. The closest beaches are at Ala Moana Beach Park and Hilton Hawaiian Village. Many water sports are available nearby. Ala Moana Shopping Center requires a 7-minute walk or short bus ride, and the center of Waikiki requires a 25-minute walk. Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is the Executive Chef at one of the hotel’s two restaurants, neither of which is for budget-conscious travelers.

Hipmunk staff recommends the restaurants in the Ala Moana Shopping Center for meals. There are several shops selling snacks, which travelers can bring back to the hotel. Duke Kahanamoku Beach and Lagoon at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, a nearby property not as laid-back or elegant as The Modern Honolulu, is a short walk from The Modern.
