The Modern Hotel Honolulu | The BEST on Waikiki

After our 3 week trip in Hawaii Ben asked what my favorite bits were and right up there with surfing and helicopter rides I said our two nights at The Modern Hotel Honolulu. It really is that good that a hotel on its own can MAKE your trip. Look no further for where to stay in Honolulu.  Related:
