Why We Love This Hotel

  • Luxe 4.5-star celeb favorite that exudes cool without being pretentious
  • An oceanview pool surrounded by 100 tons of sand with a beach feel
  • Every night, a wall of books in the lobby rotates to reveal a hidden bar, where local musicians jam into the evening and trendsetters sip creative cocktails

The Modern Honolulu is a 4.5-star urban oasis at the gateway to Waikiki Beach, less than a 10-minute walk from the sand. Home to two of the most luxurious oceanview pools on Oahu -- each with its own bar overlooking the marina and the Pacific -- the hotel exudes an effortless cool without pretense. Stretch out on a chaise or daybed at the chic Sunrise Pool or relax in the tranquil wading pool.

There are no traditional, island-inspired room furnishings to be found at the Modern Honolulu. Decor is sleek and white, accented with bold pops of color. Many rooms have stunning marina and ocean views -- some with terraces -- which makes it hard to leave. You can't miss the lobby's massive art installation -- constructed from over 100 broken surfboards signed by their riders -- created by pro surfer Herbie Fletcher. 

This hip celebrity favorite has been the filming site for several TV shows, including "The Real Housewives," "Hawaii 5-0" and "Vanderpump Rules." At 6 p.m. every night, a wall of books in the lobby rotates to reveal the Study, a "secret" bar where local musicians play live tunes and signature cocktail specials abound. Guests can also enjoy the Friday fireworks poolside or hit up Addiction, a sleek nightclub where DJs spin into the wee hours Thursdays-Saturdays. Stop by the Grove, the hotel's alfresco restaurant featuring coastal cuisine, for delicious nibbles.

Everything, they were all about selling time shares, there was no privacy in the bathroom with shutters separating the bedroom. There was no blanket on the bed, and no lobby to sit on your laptop and no inside restaurant for when it was cold and rainy.
