Although it’s not directly on the beach, the Modern is often preferred by travelers who want a more contemporary, design-forward hotel. Superstar design firm Yabu Pushelberg used an almost all-white palette for the 353 rooms, while the public spaces are punched up with elements like a colorful surfboard installation by artist (and pro surfer) Herbie Fletcher. The hotel is also home to one of Oahu’s most high-profile sushi restaurants, Morimoto Waikiki (from Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto).
