    Fantastic hotel, especially for the young professional. Great lobby bar and luxury pool spaces. However, for the love of God, do not bring your children here. Plenty of other kid approved hotels near.

    Super great Hotel to stay at! The staff is so friendly here you can not even imagine! It has a nice pool area and is just walking distance away from the famous Waikiki Beach

    Excellent, stylish hotel. The rooms were fantastic, and the staff was super friendly. Definitely eat at Morimoto's if you have the chance.

    If you want to watch the Hilton Village fireworks on Friday nights, go next door to Sarento on top of the I for dinner. Book a table around 7pm so you're ready for when the show starts at 7:45pm

    Nice rooms, great pool. A bit of a walk to Waikiki, but close to Ala Moana mall (check out the Japanese food court!) for shopping and food.

    I loved this boutique style hotel. Very contemporary, great pool and service. Not on the Beach but a close walk to the Hilton Hawaiian Village and Waikiki Beach. Marimoto's Restaurant is here.

    Hotel is fine but the concierge has not enough information about island! We asked for special beach for honeymoon they just give the names of public beaches... We found it by ourselves Kalaha Resort

    Incredible boutique/designer hotel right next to Ala Moana and Waikiki. Hip design, cool views, pool and bars. Definitely coming back here.

    If you're staying in Honolulu, The Modern is where you need to call your temporary home. The rooms are beautiful & the service is excellent. We met Iron Chef Morimoto here!

    We ended up eating in the hotel a lot during our stay, and it was all delicious! Staff was great...and the secret bar is a fantastic idea (even if we never got to try it).

    If your're into modern hotels then from what I believe this is the only nice modern hotel in Honolulu. Rooms are great and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

    This hotel is so wonderful. Every single staff member is so friendly. Plus it's location is great! You aren't in the crazy hustle of Waikiki but you are still close.

    Make sure to enjoy the pools here, especially at the end of a day of beach hopping. Order a coconut mohito and lay down facing the harbor. Find animal shapes in the passing clouds in the sky.

    One of the most well designed hotels I've ever been to. Hawaiian chic. Pop into their gift shop - cool selection of shades + swim trunks.

    As much as I love beer, the Pool Bar serves an amazing Deconstructed Mai Tai and Frozen Coconut Mojito. The mojito is like an adult ICEE. So good. Be careful.

    The decor whimsically nods to the Hawaiian tradition, with brightly colored mini ukuleles, a sculptural surfboard installation behind the reception desk, and books about the area in the lobby.

    The Gardenia cocktail is wonderful! Light, refreshing and perfect for hot weather. If you want a proper cognac/brandy you'll need to go to inside bar where they have glass snifters. No glass outside.

    Great deck. Great pool. Great bar. And cool beer bottle lights! Also check out the surfboard backsplash behind the front desk!

    If you need to getting the Hilton Hawaiian village take the beach route it's a lot faster than taking the street. The beach connects many of the major hotels.

    If you enjoy the Ukulele in the room, you can get a free lesson at the Ukulele shop at the Hyatt Waikiki (everyday at 4pm- I think).

    The Modern Twist at the pool bar combines flavors of ginger and mint and is well worth the drop in.

    Hotel is modern clean decor although white decor is showing wear&tear. Stay in a high floor room as lower ones can be noisy. Bar/restaurant food is not good morimoto is much better.

    Order a Dos Cubanos. Spicy. Refreshing. This could pull you through a night... until the champagne pops upstairs.
