Billing itself as a place where “high design meets barefoot luxury,” the Modern Honolulu is reaching out to travel agents with low fam rates and generous booking bonuses. Through May 30, the one-year-old hotel is inviting agents to stay in a city-view room at rates from $129 per night, with oceanview accommodations from $159. After three nights, they receive a 16 percent discount on the property’s best-available rate.
During their visit, agents will learn more about the hotel’s selling points, including Morimoto Waikiki, the Iron Chef’s first restaurant in Hawaii; a selection of nightlife options including lobby and poolside bars and a night club; and a full-service spa. The Modern is also paying travel agents a $10-per-night bonus for bookings in the city-view category and $25 per night for bookings made in partial oceanview or higher categories. www.themodernhonolulu.com
