Aloha and thank you for your valuable feedback. We are in the process of renovating our hallways to provide better lighting. Our parking charge is standard with majority of other hotels in our area. We hope that this does not keep you from returning to us in the future.

The hotel is wonderful and the staff was great. They always remembered your name. The only disappointing part was at check in you’re swept off to sit through a timeshare pitch. I didn’t like that as you had no option to avoid. I was also sad to hear staff were being laid off because of hotel closing and becoming a timeshare.

Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent visit to The Modern Honolulu. While we are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation experience in general we are distressed that we were not able to obtain 5 stars from you and hope that you will return soon so that we might provide even better service next time to warrant those 5 stars!

The hotel was okay for the price. The bad part was the pushy Diamond Resort people, who wanted you to attend a seminar and get money. They would not let you continue with your hotel registration until you sat there and listened to them. It was late and they were very pushy and made you feel that you had to comply with them. Leave the customers alone and let them enjoy their stay. Let them check in, if they want to see the Diamond Resort people, let that be their choice. Not shoved on them.

I had bites that showed up in the mornings. I suspect it was bed bugs. No ice machine or vending machines. Outrageous price for a room that is substandard to a Marriott Fairfield Inn.

Nice hotel with poolside dining

Pros: Good location
Cons: Lighting in the bathroom.
This is a nice hotel and a great way to begin your day having breakfast poolside one looking at the beautiful vista. The concierge service was very helpful
